Something Big is Coming

If you’ve been reading the big two for the past couple of years you may have noticed some interesting things thrown out in various books. As recently as Thor there has been mentions of the DC universe as well as the Marvel universe being mentioned in Doomsday Clock. Doomsday Clock especially cuts close with a direct mention of a “Secret Crisis”. Anybody who has been reading comics since the 80s can easily put together the two standard but preeminent event titles of each company: Secret Wars (Marvel) and Crisis (DC). While both companies have made no announcements towards such a project occurring the allusions to each other have been so blatant that because there is no stories out of legal action against one another, one can cautiously assume a shadow build up has been given a green light.

Now….how will this work? I mean, Disney is more of a monster than it ever has been and Warner Bros’s parent company doesn’t seem like its interested in working with its primary entertainment rival. Still, at its core this may be a move in the name of shared survival. It’s well known that people actually reading comics continues to dwindle even though many properties are at all time high visibility. The comic book movie is coming off an historic high and trying to maintain its current impact on pop culture. To do this it must continue to push people back to the core medium. What better way to do this than to once again put their properties together again for an eye catching event?

When will this happen? Going by Doomsday clock a full decade from now but if this were to actually happen more likely five years from now. Just in time for the next DC reboot which seems to happen every five years or so. Who would write it? Ideally I would say Geoff Johns who handles these stories decently well on a consistent basis. If a co writer is needed then Jonathan Hickman who makes world building an art should be the pick. DC could also go with Scott Snyder who has had the biggest impact on current DC continuity. One caution is going with Brian Bendis. He’s the biggest name but his ability to stick the landing on events like this is spotty at best. Maybe a spin off series that is heavy on character interaction that plays to his strengths would be a good fit, keeping him happy with having his corner taken care of. On the Marvel side Jason Aaron is the logical choice as his Avenger’s work has set the table for the Marvel universe as a whole. As for artists? You guess is as good as mine. I just suggest they start early and neither company offer one issue until the entire series is in the can.

This could be the dream book fans have been waiting years for. Well, ever since JLA/Avengers, and it could be the one last Hail Mary to revitalize comics as a whole. Maybe? Orrr…..should this be a movie instead?
