Every now and again, though, you get an amusing coincidence. Last year, Marvel comics writer Dan Slott came up with the idea of a major event called "Spider-Verse" - a dimension-hopping epic that brought together every Spider-Man ever. It was a fun story, with an unexpected star - a throwaway comment from Slott inspired a character the internet swiftly came to call '#SpiderGwen'.
In this reality, created by Jason Latour and with tremendous art by Robbi Rodriguez, Gwen Stacy was the one bitten by the radioactive spider. The latest series is fleshing out Spider-Gwen's world, including introducing us to an alternate (female, of course) Captain America. The two have been working together.
Well, last Wednesday, Spider-Gwen #6 was released. In an amusing touch, it featured this scene:
Yes, Spider-Gwen pursued her enemy - the Green Goblin - while carrying Captain America's shield! If this had come out just a month later, we'd have been saying it was inspired by the trailer!
It's most likely a coincidence - the book will have been plotted long before any of Marvel's comic book writers will have seen a trailer. But given this week's news, it couldn't be better timed.
