Check out the motion trailer for Marvel Comics’ latest universe-shaking event Empyre. Skrulls, Kree, and a ton of superheroes await.
The Empyre rises
Wow has this one been a long time coming. Marvel has been talking about Empyre for a long time. The event series was delayed due to the global pandemic, but is now seemingly on track.
With the publisher cranking out new comics again, Marvel has announced that Empyre #1 will debut in July. And from the sound of things, it’s going to be a big series for fans.
After millennia of war, Emperor Hulkling has united the Kree and Skrull empires into one powerful Alliance – and only the Avengers and Fantastic Four stand in their path as their armada bears down upon the Earth.
“The Kree/Skrull war is one of the deepest cuts in the Marvel cosmos. And whether you’re new to the Marvel Universe or have been a fan since the very beginning, EMPYRE will touch on a part of this conflict you care about,” teases co-writer Dan Slott.
“The two star-spanning empires have kept each other in check for generations, keeping each other from getting too strong, so both of them aligning together after all this time is probably bad news,” co-writer Al Ewing continues. “Some of the twists and turns we’ve got waiting for readers will be genuinely shocking.”Marvel Comics
