RELATED: "Civil War II" Battle Lines Are Drawn In Marvel Comics' July 2016 Solicitations

Marvel Comics has released its solicitations for July 2016, which see the publisher -- and its superheroes -- divided by "Civil War II" among a number of other compelling developments.

And while there's something happening in every book Marvel is releasing in July, some twists, turns and revelations stand out a little bit more than others. Here are the big developments that stood out to us.

  • The summary for "Civil War II" #3 states that "one of the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe will fall." The following issue will reveal the "shocking verdict" of the "trial of the century."

  • That trial may be the trial of Maria Hill, which is referenced in the summary for "Captain America: Steve Rogers" #3. The fallout from the trial will be seen in "Civil War II: Choosing Sides" #3.

  • "Civil War II" continues to roll through Marvel's line, with "Invincible Iron Man," "Captain America: Sam Wilson," "Captain America: Steve Rogers," "Spider-Man," "All-New Wolverine," "Squadron Supreme," "Power Man and Iron Fist," "Spider-Woman," "Totally Awesome Hulk," "Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!," "Deadpool,""Captain Marvel," "Ms. Marvel," "Uncanny Inhumans," "The Ultimates," "Nova," "New Avengers" and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." all getting tie-in issues.

  • "Invincible Iron Man" #11 from Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato teases that Steve Rogers and Tony Stark may be on the same side in the new Civil War.

  • "Squadron Supreme" #9 kicks off the "Finding Namor" story arc and teases the "resurrection of Namor." Namor died at the start of this "Squadron Supreme" series.

  • Alan Davis will provide art for "Totally Awesome Hulk" #8 before new series artist Mike del Mundo takes over with issue #9.

  • Tony will be "faced with the true identity of his parents" in Bendis and Alex Maleev's "International Iron Man" #5.

  • Gerry Duggan and Scott Koblish will provide a "lost" issue of "Amazing Spider-Man" in "Spider-Man/Deadpool" #7. The new tale from Duggan and Koblish, filling in for Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness, will be set in the 1960s.

  • Alex Ross' cover for "Amazing Spider-Man" #15 implies that Mary Jane Watson will take up the mantle of Iron Spider. The accompanying text says MJ will get into the fray.

  • The solicitation for "Spider-Gwen" #10 contains a spoiler for the current "Spider-Women" crossover event. As revealed in the text for "Spider-Gwen" #10, Gwen Stacy will lose her spider-powers during the event.

  • Following the end of "Angela: Queen of Hel," former Guardian of the Galaxy Angela will rejoin her old team in "Guardians of the Galaxy" #10.

  • The two-issue prequel comic for the film "Doctor Strange," titled "Marvel's Doctor Strange Prelude," kicks off in July. The mini comes from writer Will Corona Pilgrim and artist Jorge Fornes.
