Like, the movie is over a year away, they're not gonna start tying it into the comics right now, if ever.
I wasn't implying that the current story is a direct tie-in to the movie because it obviously isn't. The stories are going to be completely different. However, Marvel is reintroducing Zola as a major villain in the comics universe at a time when he's scheduled to be involved in the MCU again in some way. The comics producers have stated in the past that some of what they do with the characters is dictated by the film branch of the business, which is now the dog wagging the (comics) tail. The comics could be raising Zola's profile and remodeling his robotic form in advance of his being used in TWS. Or it could be a coincidence, though I find it hard to believe that. We'll know eventually.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
