‘Iron Man’ writer Keiron Gillen announced yesterday that he will be leaving the title after ‘Original Sin: Iron Man vs Hulk’ and the final instalment of his ‘Rings of The Mandarin’ arc hit shelves in June.
Thankfully, Gillen will be staying at Marvel to work on an as-yet unannounced title. As he announced the departure on his Tumblr, he added: “The new book Marvel was offering was so utterly irresistible, I knew something had to give — and I realised that I was actually in a good place to bring my run to a conclusion.”
‘Iron Man’ has been missing from Marvel solicits for the past couple of months, so it would seem that Gillen’s departure from the book leaves the future of the title slightly unclear, although with the character being on of Marvel’s current list of ‘Golden Boys’ since the Avengers movies started hitting cinemas, it is unlikely the title will be gone for long.
We will be interested to see what his new project will be, as Gillen has more than proven his knack for handling Marvel characters in recent years. Watch this space.
