We've been getting an idea how Secret Empire will lead into the Generations series of one-shots from Marvel, teaming up their current line of superheroes with classic counterparts ahead of Marvel Legacy, bringing back a few of those counterparts to the regular continuity. Steve Rogers, Bruce Banner, Tony Stark…and rumours persist involving Wolverine.
But how will that jump be made? The Marvel Legacy one-shot, which potentially may be going down a similar route of "throw everything against the wall and see what sticks and starts to burn through the wall with its own acid" as Dark Nights: Metal has been promoted with the 1,000,000 BC Avengers.
But will it begin earlier, in the Generations books themselves, more specifically Generations: The Thunder? That's what senior Marvel exec Tom Brevoort seems to be suggesting.
For everybody who expressed interest in the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC: Generations: Thor. That's all I'm going to say.

That's all you need to say, Tom! And that's this volume…
