In comics, weddings never go by without some drama, and this summer, wedding bells are in the air for one of Marvel Comics more dramatically romantic franchises.
The publisher today released a teaser for Marjorie Liu and Mike Perkins’ incoming run on “Astonishing X-Men,” pointing towards impending nuptials for someone in the cast:
Aside from team leader Wolverine — who’s had some rather interesting weddings in his past already — candidates appearing in the book include Warbird, Northstar, Gambit, Iceman, Cecelia Reyes and Karma. Of course, possibilities exist within that group for some romantic twists when you look at Gambit’s longstanding relationship with Rogue, or Iceman and Reyes’ history together, although considering the highly-publicized wedding of Archie character Kevin Keller, it’s not unlikely that Marvel and Liu could be booking a reception hall for Northstar and his popular-with-fans boyfriend Kyle.
In a conference call announcing the series last month, Liu said of the book, “We’ve got Northstar moving back to New York and he’s going to be living with his boyfriend, Kyle…Another side of it, we’ve got characters like Cecelia and Gambit circling each other and [Gambit] moving into his own apartment in Westchester.”
