Civil War II creative team includes Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez

Posted on


Captain America: Civil War isn’t the only war hitting the Marvel universes next year, as a sequel event to the series inspiring the 2016 film is also on the way.

Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez, who are working together on Marvel’s Invincible Iron Man series, will be collaborating on Civil War II, a follow-up series that, as the promotional art above indicates, pits Iron Man against Sam Wilson, who now holds the Captain America title. Little else is known about the plot of the series, and as ComicBook.com‘s initial report notes, Marvel currently has not announced an initial release for the series despite the art’s appearance on the April 2016 page of a retailer promotional item. Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters on May 4, 2016.

The cinematic take on Civil War will pit Captain America and Iron Man against each other over the Sokovia Accords, with heroes joining the opposing sides depending on their allegiances. The comics series had heroes fighting over the Superhero Registration Act, both of which generally look to keep better oversight of what the world’s heroes are doing.

While little is known about Civil War II, the debut trailer for Civil War and EW’s first look at the film offer a chance to see what roles Cap, Iron Man, and newcomer Black Panther will play in the film.

ComicBook.com first reported Bendis and Marquez’s involvement.
