The Marvel Comics reboot will pick up 8 months after Secret Wars.
Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief, Axel Alonso, stated that the Marvel Comic reboot has been in the works for years:
We realised that [Secret Wars] would be a game-changing moment that would allow us to create a big white canvas. It’s an unprecedented chance for us to tell new stories across all titles. You might say that [Secret Wars] ends a chapter in Marvel Comics.
Alonso explained that the reboot will feature an altered landscape, but confirmed that some of the characters will return from Secret Wars, stating that:
There’s no red sky, there’s no icecaps. But there will be new places on the map, there will be new characters that were just too cool to not bring back from Secret Wars. There are new teams that are necessary to deal with new threats.
There will be about 55 – 60 new comic books in the “All-New, All-Different Marvel” and each edition will feature new and updated storylines and characters. Alonso stated that some of the changes or updates might be subtle like a new character wearing a familiar costume, but others will be massive and maybe even controversial. One of the major changes revealed by Alonso was that there will be a new Hulk:
The all-new Hulk…this character is certain to cause debate. The same people who went crazy with female Thor will have a field day with this one.
Based on the picture below, there will be many more female characters in this Marvel Comics reboot like Spider-Woman (Gwen Stacy and Jessica Drew), Ms. Marvel and the all-new female Thor.

The name “All-New, All Different Marvel” won’t be blasted on the new comic books. Instead, the new comic books will follow a simpler approach and the cover will only feature the Marvel logo.
