It's official, Joe Madureira and Jeph Loebs top secret Marvel project will indeed be the third volume of the Ultimates. They will be taking over after Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch finish version two at the end of this year or early next year. It is presumed that Ultimates v3 will begin during the second quarter of 2006.
