Possible Marvel Comics Civil War 2 Spoilers Leak Online Revealing Deaths

Marvel Comics is launching a sequel to their Civil War event this year, with new details recently released revealing a Marvel character will die.

Now potential spoilers for Civil War 2 have hit the net.

A user on the neogaf forums is claiming they have read the script to the first issue:

You guys have absolutely no reason to believe me, but I’ve read the script for the first issue of this. Here’s what happens (hint, it’s pretty bad)!

The guy who can see everything in the future? He’s an Inhuman named Homer. I shit you not. No code name, no Inhuman moniker, just Homer.

Homer helps the heroes beat some big bad and Captain Marvel takes the opportunity to start using Homer to solve future crimes.

OFF PANEL, both War Machine and She Hulk die fighting Thanos as Carol learned he was landing on Earth to try to get the Cosmic Cube again thanks to Homer.

Tony swears revenge on Carol for getting Rhodey killed, while Jennifer lies dying on a table, her last words urging Danvers to keep using Homer to look into the future, even though she’s, you know, dying.

Again, no reason to believe me but there you have it. Wait and see.

Marvel Comics Killing Off Character in Civil War 2


With the upcoming release of the Captain America: Civil War movie, Marvel Comics is also releasing a new Civil War II comic this year.

Now it’s learned Marvel Comics is killing off a character with the event.

According to the NY Daily News, the death comes at the hands of a “fellow costumed hero.”

The superhero to die obviously isn’t revealed, but Marvel Comics writer James Robinson offered the following:

 “That’s like an epic,” says Robinson. “I’m genuinely shocked.” 

The plot of the series is also revealed:

“A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy,” according to the synopsis. “This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.”   

Bendis, writer of the Civil War II event, also offered the following about the story:

“People’s personal accountability is the theme of this one,” Bendis explains to his peers of his project with artist David Marquez. “From the way cops are acting on camera, to the way people talk to each other online.”

As the story unfolds this new seer predicts the hero in question will be the cause of a major incident of destruction in three days, requiring the other good guys to make a tough call. The writer just hasn’t figured what or how bad that cataclysm will be.

“It has to fall somewhere between Hitler and self-defense,” Bendis says. 



Marvel Comics Announces Civil War II


In conjunction with the release of the Captain America: Civil War movie, Marvel Comics has announced a new Civil War II event which will be written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by David Marquez.

The series hits in 2016.


“The fun thing about CIVIL WAR [was] that the issues involved not only divided the heroes, they also divided the fans, to say nothing of the creative people,” reflects Tom Brevoort, editor of both series. “The attempt was to craft the conflict so that each side held a valid and defensible position, so that a reader could fundamentally agree with either one side or the other, with neither being painted as absolutely right or absolutely wrong. While the issues involved are different, we’ll be taking the same approach to CIVIL WAR II.”

“CIVIL WAR was a seismic event that demanded the attention of existing fans and created new ones because it tapped into the most pressing question of its day,” adds Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “CIVIL WAR II will do the same.”

“CIVIL WAR is rightly thought of by many as the landmark Marvel event and it’s a huge challenge to live up to the example set by Steve McNiven and [inker] Dexter Vines,” says Marquez. “Working on this book is a huge honor and an amazing opportunity to really push myself and show what I’m capable of artistically, and it’s also just great fun to get to pull out all the toys from the Marvel toy box!

“The creative team for CIVIL WAR set the bar for every following Marvel event, and I feel so lucky to be teamed up yet again with Brian Bendis and [colorist] Justin Ponsor. Having worked together over the past several years, first on MILES MORALES: ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN and just recently on INVINCIBLE IRON MAN, We have really gelled as a team; it’s almost like we can finish each other’s’ sentences, creatively. Now we get to really show what we’re capable of on Marvel’s biggest stage and I can’t wait until everyone gets to see!”

“The original CIVIL WAR is one of the most important Marvel comics ever, and we are all very excited to have come up with what we hope is a story worthy of the title,” echoes Bendis. “If you are scared of earth shattering Marvel events where no one is safe…be afraid, be very afraid.”


Marvel Comics Teases Civil War 2


With the new Captain America: Civil War movie coming out next May, it looks as if Marvel Comics may be launching a comic book event to go along with it as a retailer posted the following image on Twitter.

Marvel Comics sent the retailer the Iron Man vs. Falcon Captain America postcard which also says “Spring 2016” with the Roman numerals “II.”

The art is also by original Civil War artist Steve McNiven.

Civil War was Marvel Comics’ big line-wide event that ran back in 2006 written by Mark Millar.


Marvel Announces Secret Wars Civil War

You did know there was no sam heck in chance that Marvel was going to leave Civil War out of their upcoming Secret Wars event, right?

Me? I’m waiting for the Secret Wars Cosmos In Collision announcement.

With Captain America 3 coming out next year, Marvel announced Secret Wars Civil War though CNN.

Sadly it won’t be written by Mark Millar, but it will be written by Charles Soule with art by Leinil Francis Yu.

If you look at the ideas that that story had, Iron Man thought superheroes should have to register with the government, and become something of a police force. Captain America thought that that was restricting the central freedoms of this country. It was a debate of security versus freedom. We’re taking that basic idea and expanding it to a larger canvas. The Registration Act is all in the past at this point. It’s more of a world drastically changed based on a superhero war, and it’s a huge story and it’s fun to be able to involve every Marvel character there is. 






Kevin Feige Explains Civil War In The Marvel Movies (Video)


Earlier today saw Marvel Studios confirm an adaptation of the “Civil War” storyline for Captain America 3.

As comic fans know, the story had to do with supeheroes registering their secret identies with the government.

And as comic and movie fans also know, the Marvel cinematic universe doesn’t really have any costumed secret super heroes.

Slash Film caught up with Kevin Feige following today’s big announcement of the new Marvel movies, with Feige commenting on the difference.

It was also noted that Feige dodged questions regarding Spider-Man (as Spidey film rights are owned by Sony Studios, but the character was integral to the comic storyline).

I don’t want to give too much away, but needless to say, the generalities of the act are the same. Something happens, perhaps it’s cumulative for things that have happened though all of the movies leading up to this point. It has made the governments of the world say “we need to have some oversight of these guys. They need to report to somebody. So it becomes more… it falls under that umbrella, rather than “you have to take off your mask.” It’s not about the secret identity thing, as much as it is about, overall, who reports to who, and who can agree to oversight committee. Because as of now, in Avengers 2, there is no more security council, there is no SHIELD, obviously. Stark is paying for it, Captain America is running it, and things occur that will make governments begin to question.

Robert Downey Jr. Teases Captain America 3 Will Be Huge

Last week saw the as-of-yet unconfirmed rumor that Robert Downey Jr. will star in Captain America 3, which will adapt the Marvel Comics “Civil War” storyline that featured hero vs. hero in a battle over superhero registration.

Now Yahoo catches up with Robert Downey Jr. and asks the actor about those Captain America 3 rumors.

Obviously, Downey can’t say much, but if you watch the below video, he looks into the camera teasing, “It’s going to be huge.”

Captain America 3 has a May 6, 2016 release also starring Chris Evans. If the Civil War rumors are legit, it will feature Captain America vs. Iron Man, lead into The Avengers 4 and set up the next seven years worth of Marvel Studios movies. Some fans are even speculating the use of Civil War is also the reason why there has been so many Spider-Man returning to Marvel Studios rumors as of late, as in the comics, Spider-Man was instrumental to the Civil War comic.

Robert Downey Jr. can next be seen in The Avengers 2, out May 1, 2015.


Mark Millar Comments On Captain America 3 Civil War; Sells Out On Amazon


It’s been stated that Robert Downey Jr. has joined the cast of Captain America 3 which will feature an adaptation of the hugely popular Marvel Comics event from 2006 with Civil War.

The series saw Captain America battle against Iron Man over superhero registration.

Mark Millar, writer behind the likes of Kick Ass, wrote the project for Marvel. Below you can check out some of his Tweets on the subject.


Captain America 3 Directors Said Civil War Is Highly Unlikely (Video)


Two days ago saw word hit that Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to star in Captain America 3, with the storyline adapting the Marvel Comics Civil War event that pitted hero vs. hero, and namely, Iron Man vs. Captain America.

Interestingly enough, the directors of Captain America 2 and Captain America 3, Anthony and Joe Russo, talked about Civil War being a part of the Marvel Studios universe about a month ago where Joe Russo stated it was too complex and highly unlikely.

You know it’s really a function of how much story can you fit into this universe. Certainly we know Thanos is coming. There is a a lot of story real estate that needs to be covered in order to tee up what is clearly going to be a massive storyline. Would something like Civil War ever fit into that? I don’t know. It’s complex. There is a lot of characters. Marvel doesn’t have ownership over some of the key players in Civil War. I would say it is probably doubtful, but you know I don’t run Marvel, so I can never say to you that it couldn’t happen, but I would say it’s probably highly unlikely.

The original report surrounding Captain America 3 and Civil War stated the event would play out into the Marvel movies for years to come. It also said there was some contention getting Robert Downey Jr. signed, which is possibly why Joe Russo was hesitant about talking about Civil War. Of course, it’s also possible that Joe Russo simply wanted to steer people away from the fact that Captain America 3 will feature Civil War and lead into The Avengers 4 and the other Marvel movies.

Regarding Marvel Studios not having the rights to the key players that took part in the comic book storyline, obviously similar to the other Marvel movies, the films would be an adaptation of the comic book event and go a different route.

Marvel has yet to officially confirm the news.

Jump ahead to the 4:39 mark for a listen:


Robert Downey Jr. Joins Captain America 3 For Civil War


It’s learned that Robert Downey Jr. has joined the cast of Captain America 3, reprising as Tony Stark and Iron Man.

It’s also reported that Marvel Studios is adapting the 2006 Mark Millar “Civil War” Marvel Comics event.

Variety states that Robert Downey Jr. is in final negotiations to be featured in Captain America 3, which is slated to begin production this Spring for a May 6, 2016 release starring Chris Evans.

It’s said the plot for Captain America 3 will pit Tony Stark/Iron Man against Captain America Steve Rogers as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to register their identities with the U.S. government, and also agree to act as a police force for the authorities. In the comics, Captain America was anti-registration with Iron Man pro-registration.

It’s stated that due to the moral dillema of registering vs. not registering, Downey’s Tony Stark will be looked at as a villain of sorts in Captain America 3, which could play out in The Avengers 4 as well.

Robert Downey Jr. has been teasing more from Iron Man, but not Iron Man 4. The report states that Marvel initially wanted Tony Stark for a smaller role in Captain America 3, but Downey Jr. wanted Stark/Iron Man to have more of a substantial role (which actually fits with the comic book storyline). Obviously, more time for RDJ means better pay for the actor, which is said to have angered billionaire Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter, who is also rumored to be at odds with Fox Studios over the film rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four properties, with Perlmutter reportedly ending the use of the characters in the Marvel Comics.

Reportedly, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige was the one who saved the deal from going sour, as Feige envisioned keeping the characters around for the long haul. It seems as RDJ is so close to signing that Feige convinced Perlmutter not to order the screenwriters to write Robert Downey Jr. out of the script, which is what Perlmutter originally intended.


The report states the Civil War storyline will be used as  way to drive the plots of sequels and new franchises for the Marvel Studios movies for the next seven years, which is why Feige wants Robert Downey Jr. involved.

The fallout from Civil War storyline and Tony Stark’s actions is said to be a factor leading into The Avengers 4 and beyond, with mention of assembling new characters like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange in their own movies.

Robert Downey Jr.’s deal for Captain America 3 is stated to include a hefty $40 million payout plus bonuses if the film out performs Captain America 2, which netted $714 million for Marvel.

It’s worth noting that recently Warner Bros. backed their Batman Vs. Superman movie away from Captain America 3, and now with Robert Downey Jr. seemingly just about signed, we know why.

The news also follows Marvel Comics announcing a new Civil War event for next Summer.



Big Surprise: Marvel Rumored To Be Doing Heroes Vs. Heroes; Again

Let’s see…

Civil War…heroes vs. heroes…

Secret Invasion…heroes vs look-a-like heroes…

World War Hulk…heroes vs heroes

Fear Itself…heroes vs. heroes…

Avengers Vs. X-Men…heroes vs. heroes

Probably missed some in-between, but coming out of the recent Marvel writer’s summit is rumor of another heroes vs. heroes event with Avengers. Vs. The Ultimates.

Bleeding Cool has it that the new heroes vs heroes event will conclude with the end of the Ultimates line. 

Another rumor is that due to the Age of Ultron, Wolverine’s healing factor will be messed up leading to him being “killed off.”
