Marvel Announces Iron Man Relaunch Coming in September

Tony Stark may be done in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the armored Avenger isn’t done as Iron Man. Dan Slott’s run with the character is ending soon, so Marvel has announced a brand new series coming this fall. Marvel has also released a trailer for the new series by Christopher Cantwell (Doctor Doom) and artist CAFU (Jane Foster: Valkyrie).

Beyond a glimpse of Iron Man’s new armor, the trailer didn’t reveal much. However, it did tease that fans will see a lot more of Tony Stark’s vulnerability, while stressing his human nature more than once.

You can watch the full trailer in the player below. You can also check out the new wraparound Iron Man #1 cover by Alex Ross — who also designed the new armor.

“I’m over the moon about getting a shot at writing the Golden Avenger,” said Cantwell in a statement. “Since Bob Layton’s art in the 1980s captured my imagination as a kid, I’ve been fascinated by Iron Man, and in this new story run, I’m aiming to explore the question: who should Iron Man be today? An angel? A god? Or just a humble man? Tony’s going to try and strip the idea of Iron Man all the way down to its metal core, something that will constantly be at odds with his giant ego. We’ll see if he can truly keep his arrogant self-image in check, even as others with god complexes set their sights on the entire universe.”

Iron Man #1 will hit comic shops in September.
