Marvel’s next teaser for 2015 comes from CBR:
After teasing 15 potential returns to past storylines over the past several weeks, including “Civil War,” “House of M,” a married Peter Parker and Mary Jane (with a daughter!) — and the animated 1992 “X-Men” series in Summer 2015, Marvel today released a teaser declaring “EVERYTHING ENDS” — in Spring 2015.
Since the first teaser arrived in mid-October, speculation has run rampant, with most theories coming to the conclusion that they were all related to the upcoming “Secret Wars” event helmed by the team of Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic. The project was announced by Marvel during New York Comic Con, accompanied by a suitably epic image by Alex Ross depicting dozens of heroes from multiple dimensions engaged in battle. “Secret Wars” is slated to arrive in May, which syncs up nicely with the vague Summer date stamped on every teaser.
Of course, today’s teaser is for something happening before “Secret Wars,” indicating a clearing of the decks ahead of the anticipated multi-dimensional throwdown. Hickman’s Avengers titles are currently in the midst of the “Time Runs Out” countdown storyline, an 8-month story arc scheduled to wrap in April, which happens to be right in the middle of Spring. It’s been a theory among fans that the finale of that storyline will segue directly into “Secret Wars,” one bolstered by Marvel’s tendency to roll ongoing arcs from its series straight into its big events.
Skitch Commentary: It actually took me a minute to realize that after all of Marvel’s teasers for “Summer 2015,” this one is actually for SPRING 2015. I guess this is the event that will kick off Secret Wars and all the other nostalgia projects they have announced over the last few weeks.
If nothing else, Marvel has definitely gotten people talking about all these teases. I keep speculating that this is going to be some kind of New 52ish like reboot just on a much smaller scale.
