A few months ago, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn said that Marvel Studios would not be attending Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year. I hoped that it wouldn’t be true, and even wrote an open letter to the studio asking them not to leave the fans hanging this year with no panel. There’s just too much going on to leave us high and dry!
Deadline has confirmed that Marvel Studios will not have a panel in Hall H this year. The studio has always delivered awesomeness to the fans since the big announcement of Iron Man, and they never disappoint, except for this year. The report says:
With so many hit franchises in working order, Marvel’s Kevin Feige just doesn’t have anything new to show this year.
Which doesn’t make sense because they are deep in production on Captain America: Civil War, and by the time Comic-Con rolls around in July they would have plenty of footage to tease if they wanted to! Who knows? Maybe they are saving it for D23.
It does look like Warner Bros. is going to have big, epic panel at the event this year. The report goes on to say that WB will be “holding a significant presentation to introduce the Zack Snyder-directed Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad, both of which reach theaters next year, followed by the Gal Gadot starrer Wonder Woman and Justice League, Part One, which arrive in 2017.”
I’m pretty bummed out that Marvel isn’t going to be doing anything, but I guess there’s always next year.
