Last week, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Creative & Creator Development, C. B. Cebulski, revealed a teaser image for an upcoming Marvel crossover with Japan’s hit manga and anime series, Attack on Titan. Yes, you read that right, Hajime Isayama’s titans are barging into Marvel-verse!
We’re shaking with excitement and anticipation, but only one black and white teaser image has been released so far. We have no idea what Marvel and Isayama have in store for us, but we know for sure that fans have been dreaming of this for a long time, as it is evident in these marvellous fan illustrations that have been floating about cyber space since 2013! Check them out!

Cebulski (@CBCebulski), who confesses that he had “always imagined how cool it would be for the Marvel characters to cross into the pages of manga worlds”, is not the only one who daydreams of the clash of Japanese manga and Western comics. If you are itching with anticipation for the unveiling of the Marvel x Attack on Titan collaboration, soon to be released in the Japanese magazine Brutus, join us in an attempt at calming the itch by enjoying these crossover fan art for now!
▼ Spidey wouldn’t have to worry about running out of gas for his “maneuvering gear”.
▼ Though we have to admit, Deadpool looks pretty bad ass with it.
▼ I wonder if wearing a mask would be against the Survey Corps’ dress code…
▼ Which is heavier, carrying Spiderman or carrying the 3-D maneuvering gear?
Issue No. 790 of Brutus will be released in Japan on 15 November, featuring a cover page illustrated by the Titan master Hajime Isayama himself, and includes a bonus Attack on Titan sticker. The crossover story is said to be an epic battle between the female Titan and the Avengers, taking place in bustling New York.
Would the Marvel superheroes be fighting the titans with their superhuman powers or 3-D maneuvering gears? Or perhaps the heroes of Attack on Titan, the Survey Corps, would be roped in to lend their titan hunting skills to the stellar Marvel cast. If you could pen this crossover, what would be your dream scenario? Let your imagination run wild in the comments section below!
