Marvel Studios Will (Hopefully) Be in Hall H This Year [UPDATED]

Sometimes we’re right; and sometimes albeit doing our best at looking at the data points, we’re a little off. If this proves true, we’d be happily mistaken.

Latino Review‘s El Mayimbe, the source of many a Marvel scoop, let loose a barrage of tweets confirming not one, but possibly three big Marvel Studios films to have an SDCC panel in Hall H this year.  All of this information has not been confirmed by Marvel, but given El Mayimbe’s track record we’re going “all in” and saying it’s the next best thing to a sure bet.

According to his sources, the Marvel Studios Hall H panel will be on Saturday, July 20, in the afternoon and last two to three-hours long. Confirmed is Captain America: The Winder Soldier, and El Mayimbe says “unconfirmed” but “most likely” to be included are both Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy. Makes sense since Marvel would need to fill that huge time slot.

We’d like to think it was the public outcry against Disney possibly withholding their big film properties from SDCC this year in lieu of D23 Expo to cause them to rethink their stance. Or it could have been in the cards all along. Either way, we’re happy (Hall H) campers. Now if we can get an Episode VII panel, our lives would be complete.

[UPDATE] We reached out to the studio, and as expected they declined comment, saying only that the studio’s Comic-Con plans will be announced “in the next couple of months”. We’ll update everyone as soon as we hear more information.

Will this be the panel of the year? Let us know in the comments.

    It would make a lot of sense for them to have these films at SDCC as Star Wars at D23 is going to steal any and all media attention. They need the spotlight on GotG, as it should prove to be a strange risk for them.

    Is there ANY word yet on Thor 2 presence at SDCC this year?

    No word from the studio yet. Did you see the news that the composer was replaced and the director possibly as well? That production seems to be in some trouble at the moment, might have an impact on any SDCC appearance.

    Agreed. Thor and Captain America already have established their audiences. GotG is going to be a weird one – a strange premise to begin with, and a director who likes to take a lot of risks and could potentially alienate the mainstream. Disney will want to get out in front of this one for sure.

    I did not hear that. Wow. That would stink. I saw the trailer before the Iron Man 3 movie, but then a friend said she saw it before Star Trek Into Darkness. I went to STID last week and didn’t see the Thor 2 trailer. I had thought the movie was all wrapped up. Weird.
