Welcome to our new weekly Marvel wrap-up highlighting what is happening in the worlds of Marvel comics, movies, TV, and video games.
Here are our top 3 comic picks for the week.
Haunted Mansion #1:
It seems that no one lives in the elegant mansion on the hill…but then where’s that creepy organ music coming from? Are the iron gates meant to keep people out…or some things in? Get ready to meet the 999 ghosts of the Haunted Mansion…but be warned, they’re looking for the 1000th! The delightfully chilling Disney attraction comes to (after)life in an all-new story.
Rocket Raccoon and Groot #3:
The horrible truth of Rocket’s dastardly transformation revealed! Oh man, that answer only raises MORE questions?! But don’t worry, all will be revealed! Probably! There is a very good chance most things will be revealed! Can the greatest friendship in the galaxy survive this terrifying trial? I’d say yes, probably, but really isn’t it the journey more than the destination?
Uncanny Avengers #7:
The Uncanny Avengers come to the aid of S.H.I.E.L.D. during a manhunt. The team makes a shocking discovery about an ally. What does it all have to do with the mystery unfolding in Pleasant Hill
Marvel.com shared some new pictures from Captain America: Civil War. This is in addition to a clip of the film being shown at The Walt Disney Company's Annual Meeting of Shareholders.
In the mid-season premiere of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the divide between those who want to protect Inhumans and those who seek to destroy them is constantly widening, and Hydra, now strengthened by Grant Ward, looms once again. However, Ward is no longer the same villainous traitor that they once knew, and the team faces an all-new enemy, whose motivations, goals and strengths are unclear. Uncertain about who (or what) they are facing, the stakes for S.H.I.E.L.D. and their assembled group of Secret Warriors are higher than ever, bringing some members of the team closer together and driving others apart. Will S.H.I.E.L.D. be able to stop one of the most powerful Inhumans to walk the Earth?
