Marvel Comics Trademarks "Invisible Woman" – Is A New Series On The Way?
Marvel Comics recently registered trademarks for IVX, World Of Wakanda, Solo, Slapstick, Bullseye, Foolkiller, Great Lakes Avengers and Prowler – all comic books that Marvel Comics are planning to publish in the near future.
They have also just registered "Invisible Woman" for comics.
Could this be ahead of an Invisible Woman comic book?
Marvel Comics cancelled the Fantastic Four comic book last year, after conflicts with Fox Studios over the rights to the Fantastic Four movie. Marvel Comics staffers at the time told Bleeding Cool, in an attempt to try and get the decision reverses, that the order came down from Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter who said he didn't even want to see the Fantastic Four when he walked through the offices. All licensing of the Fantastic Four was also suspended and the characters were removed from posters, T-shirts, trading cards, games and more.
However, even when we first reported this news, we said that this was intended to be temporary, until the Fantastic Four movie had been out and the DVD/Blu-Ray sales window had closed. And with no movie sequel on the cards, we have wondered if this position may be reversed? Especially since Marvel actually seems to be cooperating with Fox over the TV show Legion in a way they didn't do with, say X-Men: Days Of Future Past or X-Men: Apocalypse.
At San Diego ComicCon it was announced that Hasbro would finally have the rights to make an Invisible Woman figure.
Could this be related to Marvel's future comic book plans? If they still aren't allowed to publish a comic called The Fantastic four, could they publish one called The Invisible Woman?
