Hickman's Avengers Revealed! Cannonball, Human Torch & Ant-Man?!

Body

Marvel released a first look at the covers to the first three issues of Jonathan Hickman's Marvel Now! Avengers comic book.

Artist Dustin Weaver, formerly(?) of S.H.I.E.L.D., is the artist, and the covers reveal some of Hickman's characters he will be using.

We see the usual movie Assemblers with Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Hulk.

Of course, Wolverine and Spider-Man are present as well, with Spider-Woman, Falcon and Ms. Marvel (Captain Marvel) added to the cast.

However, there appear to be three newcomers.

Cannonball — or maybe a Nova?! I'm leaning more toward Sam Guthrie.

Is that Human Torch? Sunspot? I'm guessing it's Johnny Storm seeing how Hickman did so much with him over in Fantastic Four.

And I am thinking the character in the shadows is Ant-Man, which would fit in with the upcoming movie.

The issue hits in December written by Jonathan Hickman with art by Jerome Opena.
