Marvel has released a new video, or maybe we could call it a save-the-date, that looks to be celebrating what they are calling the “Wedding of the Century”!
The video goes through some of the biggest moments in the ongoing love saga between Kitty Pryde and Piotr Rasputin, or Shadowcat and Colossus as they might be more commonly known. The relationship has slowly been rebuilding in the pages of X-Men Gold, following years of ups and downs, break-ups, deaths, and even cosmic entanglements.
The couple recently set the stage for engagement in the latest issue of X-Men Gold, with Kitty asking Colossus to marry her, following Piotr’s previous discussions with her on the subject. While initially, Kitty needed time to think about his (half-assed) proposal, their recent adventures in the Negative Zone clearly helped clarify Kitty’s feelings for Piotr. While the official yes has yet to be said in the comics, the recent video spoils his answer a bit.
You can check out the full video below, which may or may not require a box of tissues. Not for me, I just have something in my eye.
The video was revealed with only a brief message:
I thee wed…
X-MEN GOLD #30
Coming June 2018
And of course, the video ends with the incredibly ominous tag – “What could go wrong?” This means, of course, that something big will definitely go wrong. Will the wedding be crashed by Emma Frost? Ex-Boyfriends from Space? Cosmic Destroyers? Magical Gods? Literally, anything can happen here.
Why do you have to play with our emotions like this, Marvel? This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an invite like this, as Northstar famously married his longtime partner Kyle in Astonishing X-Men #50, which marked the first legal gay wedding in Marvel Comics history. Going back even further, we saw a similar approach when Storm and Black Panther were married, though that marriage, unfortunately, didn’t survive the various events of the Marvel Universe.
We’ll have to wait for the release of X-Men Gold #30 in June for all to be revealed, but expect X-Men Gold to continue building towards this historic X-event over the next few months.
