Marvel has revealed the identity of Deadpool’s bride-to-be with the digital release of Deadpool: The Gauntlet #4, and her name is Shiklah.

The weekly digital Infinite Comic series by Gerry Duggan with art by Reilly Brown finds the Merc with a Mouth working for Dracula, supposedly to deliver a package, but in issue #4, releasing today, readers found out that the "package" is the long dormant Shiklah resting in her coffin.  By the way, she’s also currently betrothed to Dracula, so there will doubtless be many shenanigans before Wade ends up at the altar (see "Deadpool Wedding"), including a promised run-in with famous vampire hunter Blade.

Marvel released a free physical version of the first issue for comic retailers to give away and spark interest in the storyline.  The wedding itself will be presented in a special super-sized issue of Deadpool #27.  The book will be written by Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, with art by Mike Hawthorne and Scott Koblish.  According to the solicitation, after the ceremony story in #27, there will be some guest stories featuring previous Deadpool writers including Fabian Nicieza, Mark Waid, Joe Kelly, Christopher Priest, Jimmy Palmiotti, Frank Tieri, Gail Simone, Daniel Way, and Victor Gischler.
