Star Wars & Dartth Vader End Their Runs with 50th Issues

New York, NY— June 20, 2024 — For nearly five years, Marvel Comics has delivered Star Wars comic book series set in the largely unexplored period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Across titles like Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, and Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, fans have experienced the adventures Luke, Leia, Lando, and more iconic heroes embarked on during one of the darkest times for the Rebellion and discovered the trials Darth Vader overcame through during a pivotal turning point in his journey through the dark side.

Later this year, Marvel Comics will take readers to a different era of the galaxy, far, far away. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information!

Both finale issues will be fifty-page extravaganzas! In Charles Soule and Madibek Musabekov’s STAR WARS #50, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker must teach his student Ben Solo a powerful lesson about the true balance between Light and Dark! He offers up a tale from the days of the Rebel Alliance that touches on multiple eras of Star Wars history and brings this epic run to a thrilling, incredible climax!

Details on the Final Fate of the Infinity Watch Releases

New York, NY— June 17, 2024 — The most coveted artifacts in the known universe have resurfaced, and this time, they’re bonded to the very bodies and souls of Marvel’s up-and-coming heroes and villains. For the Mad Titan, that makes his hunt for them all the more sweet. Across nine annuals starting with June’s THANOS ANNUAL #1, witness the latest cosmos-shattering Infinity saga as celebrated icons and new fan favorites battle it out to contain—or control—the limitless power of the INFINITY STONES in the blockbuster summer event—INFINITY WATCH.

Acclaimed writer Derek Landy (Captain America/Iron Man) will spearhead the INFINITY WATCH crossover crossover. In addition to writing key chapters of the event, Landy will team up with artist Sara Pichelli on backup stories in each of the nine annuals that follow the creation and pursuit of the mysterious Death Stone-bearer who will be revealed in THANOS ANNUAL #1.

The saga will follow up on previous Infinity Stone stories with the return of recent bearers, including Star, Overtime, Prince of Power, Quantum, and Multitude, as well as introduce you to the new Mind Stone-Bearer, WORLDMIND, for the first time! As they deal with their god-like powers and mistrust from their peers, Thanos, fresh off his own dramatic transformation in Christopher Cantwell’s recent Thanos limited series, begins a bloody march to claim his dark destiny once more.

Today, fans can peek ahead at what’s to come in INFINITY WATCH parts seven through nine:

“INFINITY WATCH” PART SEVEN!

A strange sleepwalking plague has swept through the city, and it’s up to Moon Knight to solve the mystery! But when his investigation causes him to clash with one of the newest Infinity Stone Bearers in a previously-unseen adventure, it’ll be all Moon Knight can do to survive the skirmish—let alone try to keep the Mind Stone out of nefarious hands! Strap in, True Believers; things are about to get rocky!

SPIDER-BOY ANNUAL #1

 “INFINITY WATCH” PART EIGHT!

Spider-Boy is juggling being Spider-Man’s sidekick, keeping his friends safe, and being just a regular kid. But nothing stops him from jumping in when trouble is brewing! This time, he’s joined by Multitude, who has the Soul Stone, and Prince of Power, who has the Power Stone (of course!), as they face off against a mysterious evil they vow to stop!

“INFINITY WATCH” FINALE!

The Infinity Stone bearers are all brought together for the first time! If you thought the stones were dangerous in Thanos’ hands, imagine if Star gets her way!

On crafting the latest Infinity Stones saga, Landy said, “When you write for Marvel, it’s all you can hope for to add your thread to the massive tapestry of stories that has been unfolding since 1961. To be asked to spearhead this next chapter is a prospect beyond my paltry imagination. I get to work on characters I’ve never written before — Thanos! Hulk! — and drag them into the story beside the new generation of heroes like Ms. Marvel and Spider-Boy. Thankfully, there is absolutely no pressure because comic fans are a notoriously easy-going bunch who are prepared to forgive if—oh dear God.”

Avengers Assemble With Cap Leading a New Team

New York, NY— June 5, 2024 — Return to Avengers Mansion this September in AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!

From the pages of Jed MacKay’s hit run on Avengers, this new spinoff series will be written by Scarlet Witch scribe Steve Orlando and drawn by an epic lineup of comic powerhouses like Cory Smith (Wolverine, Ghost Rider), Scot Eaton (Cable), Marcelo Ferreira (Moon Knight: City of the Dead), Valentina Pinti (Immortal Thor, Blade), and more.

Inspired by the team he pulled together during Blood Hunt, AVENGERS ASSEMBLE sees Captain America take on a new initiative—recruiting new and classic Avengers for an all-new squad! Cap’s team will operate out of Avengers Mansion and tackle one crisis after another on globetrotting superhero missions! Expanding the scope of current Avengers storytelling, AVENGERS ASSEMBLE will offer readers a modern take on classic Avengers adventure and drama. With a new threat to every issue, these fast-paced stories will be jam-packed with action intermixed with exciting team bonding, thoughtful character development, and interpersonal stakes!

As vampires attack the Marvel Universe, a ragtag group of volunteer Avengers set out to change the tide of battle. And in the aftermath, Captain America will form the Avengers Emergency Response Squad! Steve’s handpicked team of veterans and newcomers live and train in Avengers Mansion, and when Captain America sounds the mission horn, whoever’s on base has seconds to pack up and deploy.

Reporting for duty are Captain America (Steve Rogers), Wasp, Hawkeye (Clint Barton), Hercules, She-Hulk, Photon, Night-Thrasher, Lightning, Wonder Man, Shang-Chi, and Lightspeed (Julie Power).

When the Red Skull’s daughter discovers a dangerous artifact, Cap, Wasp, Photon, and Shang-Chi set out to stop her – while Hawkeye hosts a poker game for the late arrivals. Will the AVENG.E.R.S. pass their first real test? Find out in the debut issue!

“This is a great time to assemble!” Orlando shared. “AVENGERS ASSEMBLE is bringing a murderer’s row of classic Avengers back to the Mansion, and classic comics storytelling is coming with it! A team of icons and new recruits alike, but heavy on the icons! And in every issue, a barnburner of an entire story packed into twenty pages! West Coast Avengers was the first comic book I ever bought, full stop. So, to be part of a return to form, heavy on personality and rich in action, is more than exciting–it’s an honor! The Avengers Emergency Response Squad is always on duty starting this summer!”

And did someone say…jackets? The team’s trademark ‘90s leather jackets are back and more in style than ever! Check them out now in Cory Smith’s special Jacket Variant Cover, along with Francis Leinil Yu’s main cover and variant covers by Emilio Laiso and Betsy Cola.

Kingsley, Brosnan & Hamill to Voice the Villains in The King of Kings

Kingsley, Brosnan & Hamill to Voice the Villains in The King of Kings

JUNE 4, 2024 (Seoul, South Korea) – Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley, beloved James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan and Star Wars universe luminary Mark Hamill form the ultimate vocal rogues’ gallery in Mofac Animation’s upcoming The King of Kings, an animated family film inspired by a little-known short story by Charles Dickens depicting the life and times of Jesus Christ.

Kingsley voices High Priest Caiaphas, who presided over the Sanhedrin trial of Jesus. Hamill takes on the role of King Herod, who, according to the Gospel of Matthew, ordered the Massacre of the Innocents in an attempt to kill Jesus as an infant. And Brosnan gives animated life to Pontius Pilate, who ultimately ordered the crucifixion of Jesus. The triumvirate of villainous voices further enhances the A-list cast behind the faith-based animated film, which also includes Academy Award & Emmy Award winners Kenneth Branagh (Belfast) and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Golden Globe winners Oscar Isaac (Show Me A Hero) and Uma Thurman (Hysterical Blindness), and Golden Globe nominee Roman Griffin Davis (Jojo Rabbit).

Mofac Animation is seeking potential domestic and international distributors for The King of Kings, which is now in its final stages of production. The filmmakers anticipate a release date close to Easter 2025.

In the film, Charles and Walter Dickens embark on a multi-dimensional adventure as the master storyteller engages his youngest son’s vivid imagination with the fascinating life of Jesus, his well-known trials and tribulations, and his notable colleagues and foes. The film’s rich animation allows the Dickens pair (and the family cat Willa) to become intrinsically immersed in the ancient tale, interacting with Jesus, his disciples, and his detractors – while the stellar cast behind the voices brings these well-known characters to animated life like never before. The result is an animated film that makes the biblical journey easily relatable, readily understood, and captivatingly entertaining for families and, especially, children of all ages.

“The true measure of a hero is always judged by the strength of his foes, and Sir Ben Kingsley, Pierce Brosnan, and Mark Hamill deliver impactful performances that elevate their respective villains to appropriately biblical heights,” says producer Anfernee Kim. “This cast is laden with winners of every major acting award, and they’ve all bought their A-games for a story most deserving of their impressive collective talents.”

After earning an Academy Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and two BAFTA Awards for his riveting portrayal of Indian social leader Mahatma Gandhi, Sir Ben Kingsley has continued to bring unequaled detail and nuance to each role he portrays, remaining a coveted and ubiquitous talent. Spanning more than half a century, Kingsley’s film career includes an additional trio of Academy Award nominations for his performances in Bugsy, Sexy Beast, and House of Sand and Fog, and a wide range of outstanding showings in movies like Schindler’s List, Operation Finale, DaliLand, Jules, Searching for Bobby Fischer; Elegy, Iron Man 3, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Hugo, Ender’s Game; and The Boxtrolls, for which he won the Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Voice Acting in an Animated Feature. Kingsley’s notable television work includes Emmy Award-nominated performances in Mrs. Harris and Murderers Among Us: The Simon Wiesenthal Story and a Screen Actors Guild award-winning role in Anne Frank: The Whole Story. Steeped in British theatre, he began his professional acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1967, performing in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest, Julius Caesar, and in the title roles of Othello and Hamlet, among others. His diverse theatrical portfolio has also encompassed productions of The Country Wife, The Cherry Orchard, A Betrothal, and Waiting for Godot. Kingsley was recently seen in Wes Anderson’s Academy Award-winning adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. He’ll next reprise his beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe character Trevor Slattery in the upcoming series Wonder Man for Disney+; star in Lionsgate’s The Killer’s Game; play Emperor Kisra in Rupert Wyatt’s actioner Desert Warrior; stars in Simmons/Hamilton Production’s upcoming shark-infested thriller Deep Water and in Nick Hamm’s upcoming biopic William Tell; and perform in Terrence Malick’s The Way of the Wind. He will also join The King of Kings co-star Pierce Brosnan in Richard Osman’s Thursday Murder Club. In 1984, he was awarded the Padma Sri by Indira Gandhi and the government of India; and in 2002, Kingsley was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in the New Year’s Eve Honors List. Kingsley received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2010.

Pierce Brosnan is a legendary Irish American actor, film producer, environmentalist, philanthropist, artist, and two-time Golden Globe Award nominee known for his rich and extensive career in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Brosnan is notable for his roles in iconic films such as Mrs. DoubtfireMamma MiaThe Thomas Crown Affair and the James Bond franchise (GoldenEyeTomorrow Never DiesThe World Is Not EnoughDie Another Day). Most recently, Brosnan was seen in The Last Rifleman, which is inspired by a true story of a World War II veteran living in a care home in Northern Ireland who, on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, decides to escape the home and embark on a journey to France to pay his final respects. He was also recently seen in director Phillip Noyce’s hitman thriller, Fast Charlie based on Victor Gischler’s Edgar Award-nominated novel, Gun Monkeys, and in the DC/Warner Bros. film Black Adam. Upcoming, Brosnan will star in Max’s The Great Lillian Hall opposite Jessica Lange; the sports drama Giant; the Focus Features spy thriller Black Bag for director Steven Soderbergh; and in the Irish romance film Four Letters of Love opposite Helena Bonham Carter. Brosnan expanded the range of his film work by launching his own production company, Irish DreamTime. Alongside his wife, Keely Shaye, he is an advocate for environmental causes, actively supporting various organizations dedicated to conservation. Brosnan’s involvement extends to co-producing documentaries like “Poisoning Paradise,” shedding light on pressing environmental issues. Beyond acting and activism, he showcases his artistic talent through painting, with his works exhibited in prestigious galleries and auctions worldwide. Recently, Brosnan debuted his first solo art exhibition, “So Many Dreams,” encapsulating his artistic journey throughout the years. Brosnan was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1997.

Mark Hamill’s career has encompassed all aspects of entertainment, including stage, screen, television, and new media. He is best known as Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy – A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back. and Return of the Jedi. He later reprised the role for Lucasfilm’s latest Star Wars trilogy – The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker. Hamill’s film career has included The Big Red One, Brigsby Bear, The Machine and the cult classic Corvette Summer. He is currently co-starring as Arthur Pym in Mike Flanagan’s latest limited series, The Fall Of The House Of Usher, and recently wrapped production on Flanagan’s latest Stephen King-based project, Life Of Chuck.

Additionally, his TV career has boasted roles in classics ranging from The F.B.I.The Partridge FamilyOne Day at a Time and The Streets of San Francisco to contemporary offerings like The Flash (1977 & 2015), Just Shoot MeCriminal MindsWhat We Do in the ShadowsThe Big Bang Theory and The Mandalorian. Hamill has also crafted a prolific voiceover career, performing in hundreds of television cartoons, feature films and video games. Hamill first played the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, a role for which he established the standard in animation – ultimately winning a BAFTA Award for his portrayal of the Joker in the Arkham Asylum video game series. An Emmy Award winner for his performance in Elena of Avalor in 2021, Hamill’s recent voice work includes lending his voice to Granduncle in the English-language version of Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award-winning The Boy and The Heron. Hamill was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018.

The King of Kings is directed by Seong-ho “Jay” Jang (Joint Security AreaThe Taste of MoneyLast Knights), one of the most respected filmmakers in Korea and an unparalleled pioneer in the visual effects realm.
