UPDATE! Marvel Will Reveal Major Announcement Tomorrow

Marvel Logo Dan BuckleyMarvel Entertainment has left a cryptic tease on their Twitter about an announcement for tomorrow. What could it be for?

Now’s the fun part – the guessing game. Given that Marvel Studios did not post this, nor did they share it, it may be safe to rule an announcement about the film slate out. The same can also be said of Netflix, as their lack of involvement suggests that an announcement about Iron Fist, The DefendersThe Punisher, or any of their other shows are not likely. However, given that this particular wing of the company also handles television, that might not necessarily rule any announcement about their TV slate out. Indeed, there are several shows tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that are in development, including the IMAX co-produced Inhumans, Freeform’s Cloak & Dagger, and an unknown ABC project helmed by John Ridley.

Outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there could be an announcement concerning their lineup of animated series (such as the new Spider-Man cartoon) or Fox’s co-produced Legion or their other planned X-Men show. There’s also a chance that this could also have to do with the Spider-Man video game from Insomniac, Capcom’s Marvel VS Capcom Infinite, or another game altogether. And, of course, there’s a decent chance that this is big reveal is going to tease yet another major comic book event series. Luckily, we won’t have long to wait until we find out.

UPDATE: As it turned out, Marvel wasn’t the only media giant that has an announcement scheduled for this time. Square-Enix, the video game developer best known for Final Fantasy, has something in store for audiences around the same time tomorrow.

Some have taken this as a sign that there will be a joint announcement between Square-Enix and Marvel in regards to a future project, and a popular guess is that if it’s not a new game entirely, then it’s something for the continuously-delayed Kingdom Hearts III. Fans have speculated that the game may feature a world based on Marvel’s superheroes in addition to the one based on the animated version of Big Hero 6. However, we’re going to treat this as a coincidence for the time being, albeit one still worth mentioning.

    It’s Square Enix related do your research

    • SAMURAI36

      So, a game?

      • Jason Scarpelli

        Yes. It states info on Square Enix’s website.

    • KungFuCthulhu

      They never said that it was official, and only fans have made that link. In any case, thank you for bringing it to my attention – I have since added it to this article.

        Actually they made it official 16 hours ago on their blog …”Keep an eye on our #SquareEnix social feeds tomorrow for an exciting announcement!”

        • KungFuCthulhu

          Right – but what I’m saying is they never explicitly confirmed that it’s a Marvel-Square-Enix joint announcement. Or when S-E are dropping their scoop, if they are indeed separate.

          – Grant

          • Jason Scarpelli

            Actually they did… “Both Marvel Entertainment and
            Square Enix signaled fans to be on the lookout for major announcements
            this Thursday. And while two major media companies both having
            announcements on the same day could easily be simply coincidence,
            there’s a chance – a good chance, in fact – that the announcements are
            one and the same.” …therefore it was confirmed. Can’t get any explicit than that.

          • KungFuCthulhu

            That’s from Newsarama – not from an official representative of Marvel or Square-Enix. That was my point.

            Still, this is still useful, and I’d like to thank you for pointing it out to us.

            Marvel and Square Enix both made an announcement at the same time on Twitter yesterday. To be presented at the same time today. Either a huge coincdence or it has been already confirmed, Oh and I like how you click the like button on your own comments lol

          • KungFuCthulhu

            I still have yet to see an announcement regarding the timing. S-E just said “tomorrow” while Marvel actually gave a time in addition to a date.

            Again, specifics. You’re probably right, though.

            Dude, just let it go.

          • SAMURAI36

            Yeah, it’s a video game, & the writing was on the wall with that one.

  • Max Irons

    Kingdom Hearts.

    • SAMURAI36

      LMAO, the Disney game? Wow. Fail.

      • Fenix

        Kingdom hearts is a good series.

      • Fenix

        Kingdom hearts is a good series.

    • KungFuCthulhu

      They already have a Big Hero 6 world, which is technically Marvel, and it’s been a long while since they announced it.
