Marvel Is Skipping Comic Con 2015

Word came a few months ago that Marvel Studios would be pulling out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but Marvel itself never confirmed the reports.

Today comes confirmation it seems with Deadline reporting that Marvel Studios is not bringing any of their upcoming movies to Comic-Con 2015 – the first time they’ve skipped out on the con since 2011.

The exit is understandable. “Ant-Man” opens within a week of the con, while May’s “Captain America: Civil War” is being kept under tight wraps so Marvel won’t have much in the way of footage to show off.
