More on Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Upcoming Avengers Assemble Run
Earlier today, Marvel held a press conference call with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, artist Stefano Caselli, and editors Lauren Sankovitch and Tom Breevort to talk about the upcoming Marvel NOW! relaunch of Avengers Assemble, to be written by none other than Ms. DeConnick.
The first question on everyone’s mind has been, “What’s Spider-Woman doing on the cover?”  Sure enough, she’s on the team, along with Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Captain Marvel.  Yes, the heroine of DeConnick’s other ongoing series will be taking her place among the Avengers!  Given the title’s obvious ties to the Marvel movieverse (having first been released around the same time as the Avengers movie starring the same team and later including Thanos and the Guardians of the Galaxy), I can’t help but get my hope up that we may yet see Carol Danvers on the silver screen by 2015.  Hell, if Joss Whedon can’t do it, I don’t know who can. And don’t worry, Black Widow fans— Natasha will be returning later in the series.
DeConnick summarized the tone of her run as “AC/DC”, elaborating that she wants to imbue the series with the same feeling she got at the moment when Iron Man blasted on screen in The Avengers, hacking the Quinjet’s sound system and blaring AC/DC. “I managed to keep it together until that point,” she said. “Then I started bouncing in my chair clapping, and that’s what I’m writing for. That’s the moment—that rock anthem, bouncing up and down in your seat moment.”
Though the book is a “team book”, DeConnick stated that she is mostly focused on the characters as individuals with their own missions and ideals who organically build relationships with the others.  Brevoort compared her take to an Aaron Sorkin TV show— also appropriate given her admission to loving bantery dialogue.  DeConnick also wants to explore the concept of the superheroes as celebrities in the digital age.  I can’t be the only one who adored the ending montage of The Avengers, showing the everyday people turning their heroes in to works of art all over the world.  I can’t wait to see more of that (though I know this will also mean a lot of Twitter, Tumblr, and maybe a sex tape scandal or two!)
And while the villain is still a secret, she has promised cameos from Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, and of course Wolverine.
DeConnick’s Avengers Assemble run begins in November, starting with issue 9.
