That's what we're getting this summer, starting in April, which is stlll spring, but tell that to Hollywood.  Five writers – Bendis, Fraction, Aaron, Brubaker and Hickman – are joining forces to come up with reasons for Marvel's two premiere superhero teams to fight each other instead of bad guys.  Will it be another Civil War, or will it be humans panicking and acting crazy in the face of a Phoenix-style Armageddon?  We'll have to wait to find out the reasons and have our opening night premiere parties.

However, here are a couple of new promo shots just released by Marvel to whet our appetites for watching the smackdowns.  Iron Man vs. Magneto, and Black Widow vs. Psylocke.  Check 'em out!
