Marvel dropped a trailer for the upcoming Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War event, which promises one gigantic brawl to end them all.
The trailer, which you can below, sees the Jade Giant take on the God of Thunder in an arena while being watched by hundreds of onlookers. Both Thor and Hulk appear to get a few crushing punches in, though there’s no clear indication as to who the winner of the climactic fight might end up being at this time. The artwork is fairly reminiscent is of two heroes’ duel in the Grandmaster’s Grand Arena from the 2017 Marvel Studios film Thor: Ragnarok.
Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War is a five-part crossover event from writer Donny Cates, penciler Martin Coccolo and cover artist Gary Frank that kicks off in April with Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War Alpha #1. The “Banner of War” arc will continue into May’s Thor #25 and Hulk #7 before concluding in June with Thor #26 and Hulk #8. The two Avengers have fought countless times over the past, but Banner of War promises to showcase their most glorious battle yet that will have a “shocking impact” on both characters’ futures.
“In the aftermath of the opening arc of Hulk and the ‘God of Hammers’ arc currently unfolding in Thorboth Bruce Banner and Thor Odinson have both undergone massive changes, but one thing remains constant — their heated rivalry!” Marvel previously teased. “When mysterious circumstances bring them into conflict once more, will the God of Thunder be able to triumph against a Bruce Banner who can now control his rage?”
Banner of War comes in time for the 60th anniversary of Hulk and Thor, with both of them first appearing in separate series released in 1962. The series will also include other recognizable Marvel characters, such as Iron Man, who will join the fight with his new and powerful Celestial Hulkbuster armor. “Well, I was a little surprised that Marvel approached me to write this, if I’m being honest,” Cates said of the event. “I’m mostly known for writing very small, very quiet, intimate comics, so I had to — ha!! Sorry. Couldn’t keep that up. Yeah, this is gonna be bonkers as hell, guys. We’re going to break everything! Happy birthday, Hulk and Thor! Hope you enjoy massive amounts of violence!”
Written by Donny Cates and illustrated by Martin Coccolo, Hulk vs. Thor: Banner of War Alpha #1 goes on sale April 27, 2022 from Marvel Comics.
