Margaret Stohl announced her new book deal with Disney at the What’s Hot in YA panel at San Diego Comic-Con. She even created a new hashtag that has people talking: #MarvelYA.
With everyone talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe it comes as no surprise that Disney publishing wants in on the action. While there is little information regarding what or who Stohl will be writing about it is definitely connected to the Marvel world.
Stohl is well prepared for writing in the Marvel universe as she used to write stories for video games. Two of her projects included Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four.
