After announcing to the world in this past weekend's New York Comic Con that they were going to bring a new "Marvel Super Heroes: Secret Wars" crossover event in May 2015, Marvel is further upping the ante by teasing even MORE events that revisit past ones and may further establish that something big is going to go down next year, where Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters and more of the Marvel Universe's landscape changes drastically.
The teaser seen on top (via Superherohype) of course is revisiting the classic 2006-2007 comic book event called "Civil War", which was written by Mark Millar and illustrated by Steve McNiven. The event saw a "Superhero Registration Act" enacted that divided the hero community and saw Iron Man champion the pro-registration team while Captain America rebelled and fought with the anti-registration side. Spider-Man was caught in the middle, and initially sided with Iron Man until tragic events made him defect to Cap's side. Unfortunately he revealed his secret identity to the world, and lots of changes were done to the Marvel Universe when all was said and done.
How this 2015 teaser speaks about revisiting a classic, we'll just have to wait and see.
On the flip side, Marvel also released a teaser image of a "Age of Ultron/ Marvel Zombies" crossover (via CBR).
What does it all mean? Again, we will find out soon enough from the House of Ideas themselves.
