Marvel Teaser: Who Will Shape the Future of Marvel NOW?

Looks like there was a reason for the 'debut' of this character.

We've heard some of the news about Marvel NOW. Marvel is creating a new atmosphere in the Marvel Universe and it will be a good jumping on point for new readers. While we will see several new titles and new #1s, it's not intended to be a reboot.

What will Marvel NOW be all about? Marvel has released (another) teaser today letting us know where exactly that information will be revealed.

This Friday, July 13, at San Diego Comic-Con, details will be revealed. At the Cup O' Joe panel at 3:15 pm PST, we'll hopefully find out what Nick Fury Jr. has to do with all of this.

As long as past events aren't getting erased and the stories will be accessible to new readers while still referencing what has just happened, it sounds like this could be a good thing.

Tony Guerrero is the Editor-in-Chief of Comic Vine. You can follow him on Twitter @GManFromHeck. He's never had the urge to jump on an actual comic book.

@LeaderVladimir: He's from Battle Scars, I think. I know they mentioned him as causing giant changes to the universe.

Nick fury junior ? Kindda lame that they gave him the eyepatch made him into a carboncopy almost

Posted by Duke_Nasty

I'm starting to get the feeling Samuel L Jackson is behind this entire thing.

Posted by leokearon

Marvel are stealing from the movies again and just when Marvel Now was getting good

Posted by Lvenger

I really hate the fact that the original Nick Fury has been wiped out in the 616 universe to make way for a Samuel L Jackson carbon copy son. It really disrespects the character's history when Marvel cave in to the expectation that Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury should exist in the 616 universe as well as the Ultimate Universe.

Haha...he ruined Star Wars...now he is worming his way into comics.

Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope

So....the Marvel movie verse is being turned into a comic? Because that's the only thing that makes sense out of all this (outside of ruining the 616 Nick Fury by trying to copy the Ultimate/Movie Nick Fury)

u have this already marvel ! its called the ultimate universe , sam jackson is nick fury , not all the heroes wear spandex ,alot of the comic deaths are permanent . im slowly making my transition to DC n indie comics only bc of this crap.

Posted by Teerack

You know I don't think i'll ever like Fury Jr. as much as Fury Sr., but after Seeing Tony Stark, Norman Osborn, Steve Rodgers, and Maria Hill try to run things. I really welcome the idea of having a Nick Fury back in charge.

This is sooooooooooo stupid. Keep the original Fury in 616 and SJ Fury in Ultimate U.

This will be epic!

This is disgusting, Marvel.

Ah'm Rogue, ah will, sugah.

Posted by Baddamdog

Any money they'll kill off Nick Fury and he'll replace him as head of SHIELD and the original will never be mentioned ever again...

@leokearon:

Nick Fury Jr has been part of the 616 Universe since after Fear Itself.

It's nothing new.

Posted by They Killed Cap!

I quit reading currents because of stuff like this...glad I am free

Posted by KainScion

@Baddamdog: fury is as good as dead and buried. in that pic with quesada art cable looks just like nick fury sr. the patch and everything.

Posted by Webjaker

I seem to remember them doing something similar before... Ultimate Marvel? or something? What ever happened to that ...

Posted by Zaklops

@They Killed Cap!: never mess with Samuel J.Jackson!

I will hold my criticism until I know more about this but it does not look good

of course it is not new

A person who looks like Smauel L Jackson, is going to help shape the Marvel Universe, that's never happen before

Posted by Mutant God

really instead of having Maria Hill or Daisy Johnson be the top cop, since they are in charge of SHIELD, its some guy who claims to be the son of Nick Fury and no other hero nor agent has heard of this guy

Thank You!!!

Posted by BKole

I agree it's a bit of a bad move to remove Nick Fury, but....what else were they going to do to create cohesion between the movies and the comics? I mean, making the original Nick Fury a black guy would have been super duper racist and met with screams and yells from all aboard. The reason they're doing this is because Avengers made Absolutely stupid money all over the world. If Marvel can capitalise on a tiny fraction of this money in their comics by changing the Nick Fury from old War guy to new son-of-fury, then...this could potentially pull comics out of the downward spiral of destruction they're in. Especially cape comics.

I like the idea of letting Nick Fury become gray haired and older looking, but I am unsure of Nick Fury Jr. Maybe if they didn't have him loose one eye and shave his head and grow facial hair so he wouldn't look like Sam Jackson's Fury.

i feel like marvel is being affected by the asshole force(rebirth and destruction, like the phoenix force) that they contracted from the recent success of the marvel cinematic universe and now it will directly affect this new "marvel now" which is the rebirth and we now whats coming up next.... fuck u avengers movie

fear itself was like 3 months ago. This is plenty new. You say fear itself like its AoA.

Edited by wmwadeii

Why is marvel making the 616 like all their media franchises. Too much like the cartoons, movies, etc. That is why the Ultimate Universe was so popular. Back in the day they would have a cartoon or a movie and readers understood they were separate. Now it seems Marvel is taking whatever "they" think is popular and throw it into the 616.

Posted by ambigu0us

It's just business.

Posted by Blood1991

It kinda sucks, but I can't really blame Marvel for cashing in on a black character who was portrayed by freakin Samuel L Jackson. Well I could, but with the Marvel movie sucess new comic readers will probably expect to see a black Nick Fury. Besides Marvels kinda been hinting at this since he was introduced.

I would put it past him

Really stupid, but marvel is like that since the heroic age.

They only think about moeny and want to appeal all the children who saw the movie by creating more 4$ issue and double or triple shipping too.

Mace Windu was one of the best parts of the prequels (although the bar is set really low) IMO.

Yup, because kids totally have crap tons of $ in their pockets. I'm a teen, and I dropped Marvel books for exactly that reason. It was a sad day when I dropped Amazing Spider-Man, but I can't afford to spend $8 a month on it, especially when they're only 32 pages long.

This guy did a pretty good job of it.

Edited by ambigu0us

Sam Jackson didn't ruin Star Wars. George Lucas ruined Star Wars. Just accept it. He's a great visionary, but a terrible writer and director. He's so bad, even his best friend, Spielberg, has distanced himself from the plot of Indy IV as a concoction from Lucas.

We'll probably see more teaser with different characters soon this is just a teaser so I doubt this will be the set in stone of the Marvel Now universe
