Kind of Spider-Man news…kind of. The following was announced during a Marvel Live Blog earlier today.
For those who haven’t read Age of Ultron be warned there are spoilers ahead.
At the conclusion of Age of Ultron Wolverine breaks everything. The time line’s are broken and in the conclusion we see Miles staring at awe at Galactus. Mainstream Galactus.
Yeah, it was kind of crazy.
In a live even blog posted today, they announced Hunger, a mini-series set in the Ultimate universe where the Ultimate universe has to take on Galactus. Seeing as how the Ultimate universe is in a constant state of being messed up, this will be interesting to see. It’s going to star Rick Jones, who was intoduced in a highly enjoyable arc back in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, shortly after the Ultimatum wave.
So how is this related to Spider-Man? Well in the blog Bendis said: “There is a lot coming over the next six to eight months in terms of Miles Morales and the concept of a Marvel multiverse, characters realizing that door is there. Miles becomes a very important lynchpin.”
In a comment that didn’t seem to have much to do with the event Bendis also said: “The death of Ultimate Spider-Man created a quiet arms race that has really been going in some sense since Captain America. Some people like the Roxxon Corporation have no morals. They’re creating monsters and heroes.”
It seems Hunger might be an important event to read for Ultimate Spidey fans. I read all the ultimate books anyway, so I’m looking forward to picking this up.
In what will no doubt be divisive news, Mary Jane Watson has been cut from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Marc Webb has opted to focus on the Peter/Gwen relationship, and has pushed the MJ story to the third movie. What’s more actress Woodley may even be recast for the third movie.
While some will be bummed that everyone’s favourite red head won’t be in the next movie, this is probably for the best. A tighter movie is only a good thing, and it means the second movie will be less bloated then it looked like it was shaped up to be.

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT
Pushing MJ to a sequel to focus on Gwen, could be a sure sign that her fate is sealed. We won’t know until the movie, but wait and see.
Interesting day for news.
First off, Marvel announced a new graphic novel called Spider-Man: Family Business. It’s being written by Mark Waid and James Robinson and being drawn by Gabrielle Dell’Otto. It’s set to take place in continuity as Spidey takes on the Kingpin.
But what’s interesting is it’s also set to introduce a character named Teresa, who claims to be the long lost sister of Peter. And it’s also set to star Peter, not Otto. With graphic novel coming out in May 2014, Peter could be back in the saddle by then. For the full story, click here.
Also, Sony has announced the release dates for Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4. They’re set to release in 2016 and 2018 respectively, it’s just surprising that Sony is so gun-ho to get these movies out there. They have a lot of faith in their cash-cow it seems. Hopefully the movies can deliver. For the full story, click here.
Morbius the Living Vampire #6
Having recently found out this series is set to end after issue 9, I’m a little sad to see it’s going to end. As long as the writer can tie up the loose ends that need tidying, then we’ll have a short but sweet ride.
