Hidden away in that USA Today story about Daredevil joining the New Avengers is this line:
It’s quite an interesting cast of characters that Norman [Osborn]‘s going to build up,” says Bendis, who’s currently working on next summer’s “big giant hoo-hah” event.
Ignoring the return of Osborn as the Avengers big bad again – He’s only been gone from that role for less than two years! Give the man a break, already – it’s surprising to see mention of Marvel’s next summer event already. Does “working on” mean that Bendis is writing the core book, or just that he’s so far ahead in his deadlines that he’s writing his tie-ins already? Somehow, I think it’s probably the former… in which case, does this mean that we now know whether that Age of Ultron thing he’s doing with Bryan Hitch will be an Avengers-only storyline, or something on a much larger scale?
