    You may remember him from Hulk 2099 and others.. he's billed as a horror artist.. so maybe a hint of where things are going?



Here's a post of mine from almost a month ago on CBR:

From an interview with Al Ewing:

Nrama: Al, After Inhumans: Judgment Day, your solicited Marvel work is down to Avengers' "No Surrender" arc. What’s in the works for you next?

Ewing: I have two Marvel series currently at various stages of completion. In their own ways, they're both personal big things for me. One of them is probably the furthest I've gone in terms of formal experimentation - it was going to be just a fun thing, but then it spiraled out of control into this deeply creatively and mentally challenging project. Which makes it sound less fun - but for the reader, I can promise that it'll be incredible fun. You'll know what I mean when it gets announced. It's so fun.

The other thing is... well, it's big. In terms of the property - it's one of the bigger ones - and in terms of what I want to do with it, the level of ambition... I'm pushing this one very hard, and in a different direction from what I usually do. See... when I made my start in UK comics, I started as a horror writer. Not many people know that. The first few stories I was ever paid to tell were horror stories - very dark and very creepy. But I don't think I've ever really done a long-form horror/suspense book for Marvel.

Not until now.

It's going to be big. And - no false modesty here - it's going to be very, very good. We've got an incredibly talented artist putting their all into it, and we've got me writing a character I've loved since my childhood - and not letting that love stop me.

This is going to be the book of 2018. Don't sleep on it

As far as I know, Hulk is one of his favorites, and I had this impression that it could be the book (also because the horror/suspense angle fits the Hulk).
Maybe I'm completely wrong, but I had to post it. 

More speculations would be welcome.

So, it looks like the first project ("experimental, fun, for the reader, etc") is the Deadpool Solo RPG book mini.

Interesting to note, the solicit mentions Hulk and Man-Thing.. Hulk is obvious.. but Man-Thing is another nod towards Ewing's horror roots. Too many coincidences adding up \:\)
