Some rather interesting news

Although it’s not often that we here at GSCT are the first with new news, when it happens, we want to be sure that we spread it.

SPOILERS below.  I’m warning you, if you like surprises, you might not want to read this article.  Marvel movies/TV/comic are all coming together.  If you are interested in any of these things, as I’m sure many of you reading this are, then brace yourselves.

Well, you made it down here, so I guess you’re serious about this.  Our sources tell us that Secret Wars, the new series coming out, is going to lead to a huge “reset” of the MU.  This alone is probably not too surprising, but get this!

The new Universe that comes about, the revamped 616 is going to actually be the exact same world as the movie/TV universe.  The characters that come out alive (IM, Thor, Hulk, etc.) are going to even more closely resemble their on screen counterparts.  What this means, besides making the comics and movies more accessible to the general public, is that we will get stories that cross mediums.  A story may have part 1 be in the comic, and part 2 on a TV show (like all the Netflix stuff coming up) and the conclusion is in a movie.

Is it a smart move?  Well, it may (definitely) make some people angry, it will probably serve to boost overall sales.  We are creatures who love things to be completed.  Stories are no exception.  I don’t think it will affect the movies’ ticket sales, but it should draw even more people into reading the comics, which is always a good thing.

Not too excited about this spoiler?  Well it’s not the only one.  The bigger, more ground-breaking spoiler that we’ve learned is that the Civil War movie will in fact lead into a villain-run government, a la Dark Reign.  It won’t be Norman Osborn, as he is still tied up with Sony, but instead, it will be a group of beings with immense power, but very different from the Cabal.

Corrupter, Purple Man, Ringmaster, and Controller will all be parts of the council, all dedicated to being able to control the minds of human leaders and supers alike.  They will be led by none other than Attilan’s least-favorite son, Maximus the mad.

Look for the clues.  Read the comics and watch the shows and movies.  Hints are laid out for those who can see them.
