New Avengers Trailer At NYCC Threatens To Kill Marvel’s Age Of Heroes
With “Avengers: Twilight,” Chip Zdarsky and Daniel Acuña offer a new vision of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. With Steve Rogers at the forefront, the story will likely pack an emotional punch given the tragic circumstances surrounding the future Avengers. Zdarsky has shown an impressive ability to weave through the complicated history of Marvel’s greatest heroes to tell new tales. Notably, he worked with artist Mark Bagley on “Spider-Man: Life Story,” which reimagined Peter Parker’s adventures told in real-time as the hero aged. Meanwhile, Zdarsky collaborated with artist Pasqual Ferry on “Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow” to imagine what would happen if Spider-Man kept his alien symbiote and embraced a dark fate as Venom. Now it’s the talented writer’s turn to put a new stamp on the Avengers.
Speaking to Marvel.com, Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski commended the creative team on “Avengers: Twlightlight.” “Having Chip on this is something special, he’s the best at reimagining things in a different lens,” he said. “And Acuña has done amazing, career-defining work here. His fans are going to be blown away.”
New promotional art by Acuña features Rogers hiding in plain sight.
In a gleaming new world of prosperity, Captain America is no more. But Steve Rogers still exists, floating through an America where freedom is an illusion, where the Avengers are strangers, and his friends are long dead. But is the Dream? How do you assemble Avengers in a world that doesn’t want them?
Readers can see the new take on Marvel’s future when “Avengers: Twilight” #1 comes to comic book shops and online retailers on January 17, 2024.
