Marvel Teases New Creative Team Taking Over Iron Man

Who will be piloting the Iron Man armor this November? We now have a pretty good idea.

Marvel sure does love their teaser images. Today, the publisher sent out a new one to tease a new/old series coming down the pipe as part of the Marvel NOW! initiative. We’re going to go out on a limb and assume this is for the upcoming new Iron Man series. Agree?

It looks like the rumors of Kieron Gillen and Greg Land taking over Iron Man from Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca are indeed true. That is, unless this teaser is a vicious prank on Marvel’s part. If it’s not, it’s probably safe to say Gillen and Land will be piloting the adventures of Tony Stark with a new #1 this November.

Gillen and Land definitely have their work cut out for them. Since 2008, Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca have been creating some of the best long-form Iron Man stories ever published. They’ve broken Tony Stark down only to build him up again, as well as have introduced a plethora of great characters to Iron Man’s supporting cast. Essentially, INVINCIBLE IRON MAN under the leadership of Fraction and Larroca has been one of Marvel’s best titles on a consistent basis.

Therefore, it should be interesting to see what Gillen and Land have up their sleeve to try and justify starting a brand new Iron Man series from scratch.

But those are just our thoughts, so what say you, dear readers? Are you looking forward to Kieron Gillen and Greg Land taking over Tony Stark? Or do you think this teaser is, ahem, teasing something entirely different? Sound off in the comments below!
