The Marvel Universe is under SIEGE !

The landscape of the Marvel Universe is about to change once again, with the upcoming Siege event. The current Dark Reign story centered around Norman Osborn will be wrapped up by the end of the year, with a Siege-themed books set to start up in 2010. Not many details are known about the new storyline.

Avengers writer Brian Michael Bendis confirms this. It starts in December with a one-shot called Siege: The Cabal, which is followed in January by a four-issue Siege series. Michael Lark will draw the Cabal one-shot, while Olivier Coipel will draw Siege. Both are written by Bendis. He says the storyline will bring a seismic shift in the Avengers titles on the level of what happened in Avengers: Disassembled and will reunite Thor, Iron Man and Captain America.

Could it be the event that played a part in reasons behind J. Michael Straczynski’s recent departure from Thor? With the Marvel Universe constantly in some sort of war or invasion and now a siege, it’s a possibility.

What do you think.
