Marvel & Attack On Titan Crossover Revealed

Marvel has announced that the Marvel Universe and Attack On Titan are colliding in a crossover later this month.

Announced by Marvel’s C.B. Cebulski over Twitter, the untitled project will be the first crossover between the members of the Marvel Universe and the popular Japanese manga’s world. Cebulski only revealed that the story would hit in just two weeks, and would take place in Japan. Judging from the image that Cebulski tweeted, it’s safe to say that Spider-Man will factor into the story. The crossover’s length, format, and creative team have yet to be announced. Since Marvel has given no prior word to retailers about the crossover’s incoming, the series will most likely see digital distribution.

"Attack on Titan" is a popular manga series and anime cartoon on Adult Swim. Created by Hajime Isayama, who also writes and illustrates the print manga, Attack On Titan follows protagonist Eren Yeager’s mission to stop man-eating humanoids known as Titans. Known for it’s distinctive manga style, "Attack on Titan" looks to bring its visual flair to Marvel.

Before dropping the news, Celbuski teased the announcement on his Twitter feed with Tweets like “For many decades & multiple reasons, almost no manga, especially popular titles, crossed into other comic universes... until now!,” and “If you ever wondered, "What if the titans from Hajime Isayama's "Attack on Titan" attacked the Marvel universe?", you'll find out soon!!”

An official announcement from Marvel will likely land in the next day or so, if not sooner. Keep checking in with for more updates on the project.

  1. no wonder marvel comics and animated series have been going down in quality recently. aside from copying manga style chapters with boatload of useless, repetitive dialogue (avengers vs x-men) and prolonged boring moments (original sin) and giving rights to animation studio madhouse (the x-men anime was gawd-awful. linear plot, too much tears, improbable situations and of course, power ups when emotions are high) now they come up with this. that gave me a major facepalm early in the morning. luckily, the films are not being handed to the japanese, else we'd get to see Black Widow battle some giant octopus or something. 

  2. This sounds like a horrible idea. 

  3. Astoria, let me haven't actually read or watched Attack on Titan

  4. Yes because American production companies have never messed up a Japanese manga franchise by making bad movies right? We all remember Dragonball Evolution and although Avatar isn't exactly anime, The Last Airbender movie was such a disappointment. The live-action adaptations of some manga franchises are brilliant with the Rurouni Kenshin trilogy immediately coming to mind. Even the Nodame Cantabile live-action movie for that matter. I'm not for this crossover but to say that they're ruining the Marvel universe is preposterous. Marvel has to approve each episode before it rolls out so it's their fault for not doing a quality check.
