Default Hints re. TF/Avengers crossover

http://www.newsarama.com/NewJoeFrida...Fridays28.html

Q and A with Joe Quesada

Quote:
RQ: “Trist” - With Marvel joining with Dynamite Entertainment for Army of Darkness vs. Marvel Zombies next year, can we take it as an indication that there may be more big company crossovers down the road? I keep hearing rumbles about a possible Avengers vs. Transformers crossover with IDW (which would ROCK!), anything you can say on that?
Nothing earth-shattering, just more hints. Not entirely convinced if it would 'rock'...

edit:

Confirmed -- http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=102772

On July 5th. The Robots in Disguise take on the Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Launching the same week as the Transformers movie, New Avengers/Transformers is a four-issue miniseries just announced at Joe Quesada's Cup 'O Joe panel at NYCC. It pits IDW's successfully relaunched Transformers against the House of Ideas' flagship team.

I'm not hugely keen on crossovers myself, but a lot of TF fans do read cape books and it'd also be good exposure for the IDW series.

The Zombies thing sounds interesting too.

Indeed so, a boost to IDW's figures would always help. Maybe a few would stick around too. Interesting to think who might comprise the creative team.

As someone at Transfans said, I'd only be interested if it were The Transfromers Vs. Steed and Mrs. Peel.

Actually, TV Megatron would fit right into that show with his barking plans. "You diabolical mastermind you".

Aren't the Avengers dead?

No, wait, they gave them to Bendis. Even worse

I'd be mildly interested to read that, but only if it was some sort of alternate reality were characters from either faction are allowed to die. But if it happened, it wouldn't be that, would it? Captain America would decapitate Megatron with his ****ing shield, wouldn't he?

Smile Transformers/Avengers crossover rumours continue

http://www.silverbulletcomicbooks.com/rage/index1.htm

News blagged from artiepants at TFW.

It isn't as far-fetched as it may sound, given stuff like this being planned...

The Marvel Zombies series was a huge hit, so I could see that crossover happening. I was actually hoping for a continuation of the Zombies.

Maybe a cross between Marvel Zombies and Transformers could happen! Just picture Optimus Prime eating Megatrons leg. That would be awesome! Or better yet, Grimlock eating Wheelie!

Default New Avengers/TF Crossover

Well bugger me, it's true - looks like they're trying to crowbar it into continuity for both sides. Maybe they could carry it off if they let Bendis deal with it, but we'll see.....

Wow, I can't believe this is true. Seems a little unreal. Well any publicity is good, so hopefully this'll increase exposure. Can't see how it couldn't.

Sounds interesting but still a little odd.

As with all Transformers stories, the question is what universe?

Transformers is set in real time, Marvel isn't. The Transformers Marvel universe ends with G2 (and Alignment if you wish, though not specified) in the 1990s. So my theory is this will introduce either be an interdimensional story or a new universe, or maybe an introduction of Cybertron in the traditional (616) Marvel cosmology.

So, would you put a "" or a "" at the end of that statement?

Anyway, I'm entirely indifferent – not overly excited, but I'll certainly pick up the first issue.

I'm up for it. Wasn't for the Joes ones, but this looks to have Doom in and various other good stuff.

Stuart Moore:

Wow -- four pages and a political argument, too! (Will not get sucked into that...will not...)

Just a few clarifications: Wolverine is definitely in the book, which takes place (Marvel U) between the first two story arcs of NEW AVENGERS, pre-CIVIL WAR. In the Transformers universe, we're setting this between the INFILTRATION and ESCALATION miniseries, right after Optimus Prime has arrived on Earth to take command of Prowl's team.

I remember that Spidey has met the Decepticons before...but the Transformers universe has kind of been rebooted since then, so we probably won't reference it.

As Bill Rosemann said at the panel last night, Ms. Marvel and the Falcon are there for "aerial support" against the Decepticons.

As for Marvel villains: The story takes place mostly in Latveria...so you do the math. Let's just say there's "more than meets the eye" going on here.

And, uh, I'm having a lot of fun with it all.

Back to the convention. No sleep this weekend!

Will be very impressed if things leave off still roughly in-continuity by the end of the miniseries.

It's going to be an odd curio for sure.

Yay. If this thing sells more than seven copies, expect a line of ever more insipid TF/Marvel crossovers. Can't wait for Transformers/New Warriors myself...
