The mystery behind what Marvel was planning with their Planet Hulk teaser has just been officially revealed with a comic entitled…Planet Hulk! The tale features the creative team of Sam Humphries on writing and Marc Laming on art, who are chronicling the new adventures of Hulk, Steve Rogers, and Devil Dinosaur during the upcoming Secret Wars crossover. CBR broke the news and ran an exclusive interview with Jack Kirby creation Devil Dinosaur on the inception of the brand new series–Yes, you read that sentence correctly.
The Dino was interviewed in place of author Sam Humphries, who took a vacation to New Attilan. Fans can look for Planet Hulk in May, and take note that this series falls under the Warzones! banner of Secret Wars.
“RAAAAAAUGH!! The scent of blood burns my nostrils,” said Devil Dinosaur to CBR. “The Captain and I are far, far from the colosseum. The colosseum of battle, and death. The colosseum where we are warbound. “May he who dies, die well.” But death follows us to Greenland. This is a place where we HUNT. We hunt the RED KING!”
This crossover bodes well for the company, as Marvel is continuing to take advantage of some really quirky ideas for tie-ins including the Garth Ennis project announced earlier this week. Where Monsters Dwell mixes World War I with more Dinosaurs. This week’s new Marvel announcements contain all the dinos that we could possibly ask for.
It seems that the extinct animal is hunting for Steve Rogers who appears to be caught in his crosshairs:
“ROOOOOAWL! The Captain and I are WARBOUND. We fight in the coliseum. Every day, the Captain’s mighty axe, bathed in blood. From different lands, yet we are brothers. Brothers in battle. I will kill all who fight the Captain! I will smash their skulls in my TEETH. I will rend their flesh in my CLAWS! They will know THE FURY OF DEVIL DINOSAUR!!”
Finally, lets give the creature a hand for some extraordinary etiquette in the manner in which the Devil Dinosaur signs out his emails:
ALL HULK FALL UNDER OUR RAGE!!!
If you have any follow up questions, I will be happy to address.
Many thanks and have a great day.
