Official Press Release
Marvel is proud to announce Big Shots! A brand new initiative, Big Shots spotlights three major launches of all-new ongoing series for the Marvel Universe’s hardest hitting heroes by the comic industry’s top creative talent! Kicking off with Moon Knight #1 in May, the Eisner Award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev as they delve deep into the psyche of the titular hero and embark on his greatest adventure yet. Then, the world’s most feared vigilante – Frank Castle – returns to clean up the streets of Marvel Universe this June in The Punisher #1, from a blockbuster creative team that will have everybody talking. Finally, Matt Murdock returns to New York this July in Daredevil #1 to reclaim his place in the Marvel Universe. But where does the man known as Daredevil belong?
“Fans are going to love what we have in store with Big Shots,” said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “We’re taking some of the best Marvel characters that we all know and love and sending them in a brand new direction with some Grade A talent. We want to reach a whole new set of readers while at the same time appeal to long time fans of these great heroes and Big Shots is how we’re doing it.”

This reminds me a lot of Marvel Knights, and how Daredevil, Punisher, and the Black Panther were all successfully relaunched under the banner. And since Bendis, who’s Marvel Knights Daredevil is the thing of modern legend, is handling Moon Knight, I honestly would not be surprised to see a lot of Marvel Knights tones carry over. Especially when you consider that the opening salvo of titles are very much in the vein of the (seemingly) retired imprint.
