They also got a chance to catch up with writer Peter David to hear his thoughts on the upcoming Genis-Vell comic as he teased:
“I never thought I'd have the opportunity to return to Genis, what with him being dead and all. But apparently death never lasts... which is actually one of the themes of the limited series I came up with. It's great to be back with Genis, Rick, Marlo and the whole Genis-Vell gang.”
Genis-Vell: Captain Marvel #1 will be hitting comic shelves in June 2022
