From Lying in the Gutters came a rumor that Powers and Kabuki and moving to Marvel.
Bendis and Oeming have been hitting something big has happen to push back Powers vol 2 #1. Bendis also stated that Marvels july orders will have people’s mouths drop open. A huge thread on Bendis’ board and image is going on, both Bendis and Oeming have been on and haven’t post in the thread.
So what does this have to do with movies? My first thought was: “Bet Avi Arad is doing this to get the Powers movie under his stable.”
Powers is at Sony, Arad has a relationship with them (thanks Spidey), Powers is written by Marvel’s hotest writer, and the powers’ movie has been collecting dust while Frank Oz spend 2 years making the Stepford Bomb err Wives. Sounds like a business relationship to me that would benefit everyone. Bendis and Oeming get their comic made into a movie (lets be honest, out side of Stan Lee, most comic creators are dead or near so before their comic hits the silver screen) and Marvel gets another movie to add to their string of hits.
My gut feeling is it will not effect the comic one way or another. Nor is it a sign of a new trend at Marvel to support comic creators. The movie on the other hand it could effect a great deal
Just my mind thinking.
