Titan have just sent us sketchy details about an ID4 comic series set after the first movie and, presumably, leading into the sequel…
Details below, guys.
Titan Comics is thrilled to announce it has secured the license to publish all-new Independence Day comics from Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.
In 1996, Independence Day wowed audiences across the world, winning numerous awards, including an Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects and Grammy AwardT® forBest Instrumental Composition Written for a Motion Picture or for Television.
Directed by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day Resurgence takes place 20 years after the events of the original film and stars Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) and Jessie Usher (When the Game Stands Tall), along with Independence Day returnees Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, and Vivica A. Fox.
Titan Comics’ Independence Day comic series will be a rich psychological prison drama set after the events of the first film.
Steve White, the Titan Comics editor of the forthcoming series described it as “a golden opportunity to segue nicely into next year’s blockbuster sequel by taking the mythos of the original and maybe adding a little darkness to it.”
Independence Day Resurgence is set to launch in theatres everywhere June 24, 2016.
