So that explains that...

Last week, just a few days after Marvel's Tom Brevoort told Newsarama readers there would be no Avengers ongoing titles in May or June during Secret Wars, Marvel Comics issued an All-New, All-Different Avengers - May 2015 teaser seemingly contradicting their Senior VP of Publishing and Executive Editor. But it turns out, they didn't.

Diamond Comic Distributors just announced Marvel's second ("Silver") Free Comic Book Day title for the annual May 2 event. Originally solicited as an Avengers #1, Marvel and Diamond just revealed it'll in fact be an All-New, All-Different Avengers title.

"Get ready for a look into the world that’s coming with All-New, All-Different Avengers FCBD!" reads Marvel's press release. "It’s your first taste of the all-new Marvel Universe as a blockbuster top secret Avengers creative team sets out on a new adventure that will have fans begging for more! Who will be Earth’s Mightiest Heroes when the dust settles from Secret Wars? Find out here!"

That issue will also feature a story "previewing" Charles Soule's Uncanny Inhumans launching in May, although that title will also be previewed in April's with a Uncanny Inhumans #0.

Marvel's "Gold" FCBD title will, of course, be a Secret Wars related issue. Here's what Marvel had to say about that title:

"First, Secret Wars #0 brings you a prologue to the most important comic series of 2015! From the all-star creative team of Jonathan Hickman and Paul Renaud, get caught up with the perfect primer for the mega-event of the year, just in time for Secret Wars #1 to hit comic shops the very next Wednesday!
"As a bonus, Secret Wars #0 will also contain a special presentation of “Attack on Avengers”, the sought after 8-page Avengers and Attack on Titan crossover, never-before-released in the United States by Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama with art by Gerardo Sandoval!"
