Marvel Releasing Comic News on Stephen Colbert Tonight

More Marvel news is expected to drop on The Stephen Colbert Show tonight at 11:30 ET.

While not a Disney product, Screen Rant's Rob Keves points out that the show's host isn't just a fan, but a presidential candidate in the Marvel Universe, so big news on screen makes sense.



"Marvel Announcing Another Classic Character Change-up Tonight on ‘Colbert’" notes the action will book specific, not film or television related. Meaning Chris Hemsworth will still be Thoring it up at Avengers: Age of Ultron.

(Multiple movie deals are good for job security.)

Marvel Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada'll appear tonight to rev up anticipation of “an all-new comic book title and all-new era for one of Marvel’s most classic Super Heroes.”

So far, comic fans will have a new Captain America and Thor starting this fall. Does that mean there'll be a new Iron Man or Hulk?



But Ryan Penagos posted about some funky business going between Marvel and Colbert in "Stephen Colbert: Agent of Hydra?" at the end of April. Some fans noticed a fishy phrase swimming on TV.

Turns out Colbert received Captain America's shield in 2007 from Quesada, who later transitioned from Marvel Editor-in-Chief to his current position. Of course, the TV host couldn't receive the gift until Cap died, so there's that.



But on April 21, the bastion of truthiness was seen with the words "Hail Hydra" floating with patriotic words like "star-spangled," "honorable," and "self-evident." Any true Cap fan knows how serious those words really are and what they mean. Steve Rogers was encased in ice for 60 years for trying to prevent those words from hitting a global scale, after all!

Does this mean Comedy Central's wordsmith’s gone to the dark side?

Marvel's wondering!



And if they're wondering, what news will be released tonight? Maybe a superhero'll end up following Colbert on the questionable front. It's not like spies and sleeper agents are a new thing for the MCU. (Hello, Black Widow.)

The latest surprise comes on the heels of yesterday's bombshell announcement about Thor, God of Thunder. Axel Alonso, the current EIC, stepped up yesterday to talk about the female Thor that'll be taking over from the classic one on ABC's The View.

Marvel's going all out in courting fans and good press while the Avengers comic universe seems to be rotating fast before San Diego Comic-Con. Core characters are flipping, and that's big news.



Maybe Pepper'll take over the Iron Man moniker after she rocked the chance in Iron Man 3 last year and female fans flocked to the idea. Alonso did tell TIME 's Eilana Dockerton female fans are high on the list of keeping the genre alive.

So what's going on?

To quote Julie Chen about Big Brother, "expect the unexpected" tonight. Tune in and see just what's gonna be changing in the Marvel world. (It's a big bad world out there.)
