Marvel E-I-C On The Cosmic Initiative Unfolding Across The Film And Comic Book Line

Marvel E-I-C Axel Alonso talks about the cosmic "renaissance" taking shape across various Marvel comic book titles and its correlation to the cosmic plans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.






In his weekly column over at CBR, Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso touched on a number of topics as per the norm but one item of note is his take on the relationship between the cosmic plans for various Marvel comic books and the building cosmic plans of the MCU. Specifically, Alonso addresses whether this cross medium focus is occurring as a coincidence, intentionally or concurrently. " What you're asking is really a variation on, "What came first -- the chicken or the egg?" Don't forget: The Thanos that popped up in the epilogue to "Marvel's The Avengers" -- the guy with the purple skin and dimpled chin -- looked like the Thanos comic readers know and love.

Look, when we found out about the Thanos epilog and Marvel Studios' plans for a "Guardians of the Galaxy," we decided to take advantage of both and make the cosmic universe as relevant to the core Marvel reader as anything you'd find in "Avengers," "X-Men" or "Spider-Man." So far, the response to "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Nova" has been fantastic. "Guardians" was the number one book in April. While we don't want our cosmic universe to present an aesthetic that is completely at odds with the movies, we aren't worried about matching up 100 percent."


Take note everyone who insisted that the events unfolding in the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book were an indication of how the film would unfold, specifically that Iron Man 3 would include the stinger where Tony Stark heads off into space to meet-up with Star-Lord and his crew.
