If you were thinking that the upcoming ‘Captain Marvel Prelude’ tie-in comic would put a focus on Marvel’s most powerful superhero then you’d be wrong as it actually is set to show off Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Under the direction of Walt Disney, Marvel Comics has been releasing officially canon tie-in comics to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for years, and now we’ve got a prelude to the upcoming ‘Captain Marvel‘ film. With our first introduction to the hero coming from Maria Hill and Nick Fury summoning her as they faded from existence at the end of ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ it should come as no surprise that her prelude comic will directly focus on them.
The new book is going to be a 32-page one-shot by Will Corona Pilgrim with art by Andrea Di Vito that comes well before the film’s release. While we’ll have to wait to see ‘Captain Marvel’ on the big screen in March of 2019, this new book will be available in November, and it sounds like we’ll see what these two spies who formally ran S.H.I.E.L.D. may have been up to before the end credits of the film.
The solicit for the book states that:
Before CAROL DANVERS takes flight in 2019’s first Marvel Studios film, immerse yourself in this all-new adventure! Spinning out of the mysterious events of Avengers: Infinity War, NICK FURY, and MARIA HILL set off on life-or-death missions that lead directly to the appearance of CAPTAIN MARVEL!
Outside of writing all of these tie-in books, Pilgrim is also the Creative Director of Research and Development at Marvel Studios so he has the right insight to be able to make them work. There is always a chance that this will take place before the events of ‘Captain Marvel’ as a flashback story but at the movie is slated to share her origin it seems more likely that we won’t get any real foreshadowing of the cinematic take of Carol Danvers here.
Are you planning on picking up ‘Captain Marvel Prelude’? Do you think that the hero will make an appearance in the book or will this just have a focus on Nick Fury and Maria Hill? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
‘Captain Marvel Prelude’ will be flying into your local comic shop on November 14th, 2018!
