Last month came confirmation that Marvel Studios is returning to San Diego Comic-Con this year after sitting out 2018.
This has the potential to be huge as the company has deliberately held off on announcing its future slate of films, even though we know some are already in the works like “Black Widow,” “The Eternals,” “Shang-Chi” and future “Doctor Strange,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Black Panther” sequels.
The company said they’ve been deliberately waiting until “Spider-Man: Far From Home” was out and in cinemas before they move forward revealing anything more. Now comes confirmation that the studio will be holding a 90-minute panel in Hall H starting at 5:15pm US-PT on Saturday July 20th which suggests that big slate reveal will take place during the panel in two weeks time.
If it does, the studio could easily ‘win’ Comic-Con with so many studios like Warner Bros. Pictures, Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures and Lionsgate all sitting out this year’s confab. Only a handful of film titles will be getting major panels this year including “IT: Chapter 2,” “Terminator: Dark Fakte,” “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” and “Jay and Silent Bob” reboot along with select TV titles like “Agents of SHIELD,” “The Walking Dead” and a big panel for the various “Star Trek” shows.
The assorted Marvel Disney+ shows in the works like “Loki” and “Falcon and Winter Soldier” could also get a reveal, but it’s expected they will hold off getting their showcase until D23 in August.
