SDCC: First Look at Avengers: Rage of Ultron by Remender and Opena

There was a rumor going around that Rick Remender and Jerome Opena were working on an OGN for Marvel. Well confirmation at last. Marvel has announced that they are the creative team- with colorist Dean White- on April 2015's Avengers: Rage of Ultron. This book is timed to match release with Marvel Studio's highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron movie coming out at the same time.

Plot details are a little slim right now but what is know is that the story takes place in current Marvel continuity and also in the past- back in the Roger Stern/John Byrne era of Avengers. He is also to have said that he wants this book to be like DC's Killing Joke in that developments in here have lasting effects on the Marvel universe for years to come.

Here is a look at some preview artwork; more penciled pages after the JUMP.

It's been a few years since the original was published, but DC has released a few pages of Gary Frank's penciled pages for the sequel, Batman: Earth One Volume- once again written by Geoff Johns. Not many details are available on the plot but judging from the pages it looks like Killer Croc is part of the story line.

More pages are available after the JUMP.

First Look at the new Thor and 'old' Thor character designs

Marvel had released some images of the new female Thor following the announcement on the View last week. Well incoming series artist Russell Dauterman has posted his designs on Tumblr for the characters; both the new female and the 'original' Thor, now known to be unworthy to carry the hammer anymore.

I actually like these designs. He's carried over the Chris Hemsworth hairstyle from the movies on his redesign for the Odinson. While the helmet is a bit large on the new Thor I do understand that Marvel is playing up the mystery of who it is carrying the hammer so it makes sense from a story point.

Hayley Atwell confirms appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly actress Hayley Atwell confirmed she would be appearing as
Agent Carter in the Marvel sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. She did say if she would be in flashback sequences or if she would be appearing as the elderly Peggy Carter seen in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This official confirmation from her backs up set reports from this past spring which had her and Evans in London in period outfits.
