Marvel Comics has released a new video trailer for Empyre #1, promising that a hero must ally with enemies, a hero will betray everyone else and that a king will fall – with special emphasis on Black Panther. Oh and it looks like Captain Marvel will embrace her Kree heritage by replacing Ronan The Accuser as… Carol The Accuser? Could be. Take a look at the trailer and decide for yourself, before it shatters the Marvel Universe as we know it, etc etc etc.
Here's the PR:
EMPYRE, the legendary epic that will shatter the Marvel Universe, will at last land in comic shops this July. Don't miss your latest look at the cataclysmic conflict in this brand new trailer for this epic event, featuring some never-before-seen artwork!
After millennia of war, Emperor Hulkling has united the Kree and Skrull empires into one powerful Alliance – and only the Avengers and Fantastic Four stand in their path as their armada bears down upon the Earth.
"The Kree/Skrull war is one of the deepest cuts in the Marvel cosmos. And whether you're new to the Marvel Universe or have been a fan since the very beginning, EMPYRE will touch on a part of this conflict you care about," teases co-writer Dan Slott.
"The two star-spanning empires have kept each other in check for generations, keeping each other from getting too strong, so both of them aligning together after all this time is probably bad news," co-writer Al Ewing continues. "Some of the twists and turns we've got waiting for readers will be genuinely shocking."
