I don’t normally get this involved in guessing these things, but what can I say, it’s an interesting “mystery” trying to figure out what Dark Siege is all about.
Rich Johnston is now reporting that Brian Michael Bendis will be writing Dark Siege, not Matt Fraction. Reader Huey Sheridan suggested that to me back in July that HE thought Bendis was going to be writing Dark Siege, as well.
Now here’s where I think I differ with Rich’s conclusion. Rich still thinks (and heck, he might be right) that Dark Siege will be basically a Thor crossover that ties Thor into the Marvel Universe proper (after being mostly disengaged for the last two years while JMS was working on the book), and the idea of such a crossover was not appealing to JMS. That very well could be true.
But I’m starting to think that a more likely scenario is that Dark Siege is the conclusion to Dark Reign. That it WILL involve Thor becoming intertwined with the Marvel Universe again, but only in the sense that he will team up with the other superheroes to bring Norman Osborn down.
It makes sense that Bendis would write such an event, right (as Dark Reign is basically his baby)? It makes sense that a top artist like Olivier Coipel would draw it, right? It makes sense for a dark “reign” to be ended by a dark “siege,” right?
So that’s my guess regarding what Dark Siege will be!
