Marvel Comics Foreshadows the Future of Star and Black Cat

Marvel Comics solicited a couple of comic books for May 2020 with what they called "Foreshadowing" variant covers. Gioving a tease of what was to come. One was Star #5, the other was Valkyrie #11. Now, the latter was cancelled before it could be published. But Star #5 is finally published this week. And this is the Foreshadow variant cover in question, drawn by Kris Anka.

Which appears to show Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat, having stolen a certain gem – sorry, I mean, stone – with a certain Star trapped inside it. We know that Felica Hardy is to return, possibly in December, for a King In Black storyline. Might cosmic powered beings trapped against their will play out in any way in a story about Knull? Or is this for something completely different?

And yes, Valkyrie: Jane Foster was cancelled with #10 so we never got to see the planned Foreshadow variant cover for Valkyrie: Jane Foster #11. But here's a little foreshadowing of our own. Thor: Love And Thunder will be released at some point. And odds are that Marvel will want some new Jane Foster content to be running alongside it. Might we see a return of the title or the character in a prominent role at some point soon? Keep watching the solicitations.
