Avengers Vs X-Men In 2012

    Are you ready to rumble? USA Today has revealed Marvel's big plans for 2012, with further information expected to be announced by the company tomorrow.  The throwdown will take palce over 12 bi-weekly issues with Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman and Matt Fraction all on writing duties, the heroic teams are set to clash over the arrival of the Phoenix Force on Earth and its target of Hope Summers. The art will be provided by superstar trio John Romita Jr., Olivier Coipel and Adam Kubert.
      A "zero issue" prologue will kick off the event next March from Bendis, with the premise being that the X-Men want to prepare Hope to be the host of the Phoenix Force while the Avengers want the girl handed over to them in order to keep the world from potentially being destroyed if she fails to control the powerful entity.

Pure fun as Marvel Avengers Assemble undoubtedly is anyone claiming this is the best comic book inspired movie is surely forgetting The Dark Knight? Perhaps this is the film that stays the truest to the spirit of the comic book and that is something to be applauded - it's just that my palette is a little bit too savoury to fall head over heels for this one and I'm still expecting the next film in the Batman franchise to be more my bag. Don't get me wrong, this is still in a different league to the grimy and turgid Watchmen debacle, and it goes without saying that this renders the Fantastic Four as totally obsolete - it's just that I wouldn't be surprised if in the inevitable sequel everyone starts breaking into song and continuously referring to Dorothy.
