Mapping out a new team in the comics that consists largely of characters we have seen (or will see) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe strikes me as synergy.

Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron Screens Hulk Vs. Iron Man Footage Ahead Of Comic-Con

Could A Female Thor Work In Marvel's Cinematic Universe?
Heroes fall and rise at the turn of a comic page, and it looks like Thor's time to fall has come. With a female protagonist being named as the next stewart of Mjolnir, the question has to be asked: can a “female Thor” work in the favor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Ant-Man Hires Two More Writers
Two things about this story stand out. Hiring writers to work during production is not unusual. It happens all the time. But one, it usually doesn't happen on a big movie after this many years of development, and this many accomplished writers.
