EXCLUSIVE: Hopeless, Walker Begin A DESCENT for Marvel

Earlier Friday, Marvel debuted its DEFEND teaser on CBR, and now the publisher's pre-New York Comic Con promotion continues with a second CBR-exclusive reveal: DESCENT.

While we're not sure exactly what the meaning is behind the word chosen for this image, the fact that Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker are the creative team, combined with it being an Avengers panel announcement, makes it a safe bet that this has something to do with the next season of "Avengers Arena." At this point, all we know about the fate of the surviving cast of Hopeless' current "Hunger Games" / "Battle Royale"-style series that after the final arc, "everything changes."

DESCENT details will be revealed during Marvel's Avengers panel at NYCC, Friday, Oct. 11 at 4 p.m. Eastern. CBR News will be reporting live from the panel.
