THOR 700

THOR #700 Sets the Stage for The Asgardian’s Future

Writer Jason Aaron and Editor Wil Moss tease what’s to come for the hammer-wielding hero

New York, NY—October 23, 2017—THOR #700 raised the Mighty Asgardian to a new level of storytelling in an epic tale from writer Jason Aaron and a host of incredible artists such as Russell Dauterman, Walter Simonson, James Harren, Becky Cloonan, Das Pastoras, Chris Burnham, Andrew MacLean, Jill Thompson, Mike del Mundo, Olivier Coipel, Daniel Acuna, and Matthew Wilson. And in the spirit of Marvel Legacy, this is just the beginning of a story that will affect not just Thor, but the Marvel Universe at large.

The Death Of The Mighty Thor story has only just begun, but two THOR characters are already dead!” teases editor Wil Moss. “In THE MIGHTY THOR #700, the monstrous Mangog kills Thor’s goat Toothgnasher and Malekith’s dark army kills Karnilla, Queen of the Norns. Before she dies, though, Karnilla sees where the threads of fate are leading, and thanks to a gorgeous double-page spread by writer Jason Aaron, artist Russell Dauterman and color artist Matthew Wilson, readers get to see what’s coming too.”

“You see a lot teases for upcoming stories here,” says writer Jason Aaron. “Some of those stories will play out in the pages of THOR. Others will play out elsewhere, some across multiple titles. Between THOR #700 and MARVEL LEGACY #1, I’m really setting the stage for the biggest stories I’ll be doing for Marvel in 2018. Probably the biggest stories I’ve ever done for Marvel, period. You see a lot of that set-up here, and I’m beyond excited for everybody to see where it’s leading and what it means for Thor, not to mention the rest of the Marvel Universe.”

“We’re not going to explain the meaning behind all the various images on that double-page spread,” continues Moss, “but we want to hear our readers’ best guesses! Drop us a line at MHEROES@marvel.com, and mark your emails ‘Okay To Print’!”

The perfect jumping-on point for all fans, THOR #700 is in comic shops now. Don’t miss your chance to get in on the action! And look for THOR #701 – which Moss calls “an issue-length brawl to end all brawls” – coming to comic shops in November!

Fandango  - We've Got Your Movie Tickets!

Story: Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. “Phantom Thread” is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
