Marvel Studios Returns to San Diego Comic-Con in 2017

It’s been a busy week full of Star Wars news – but not to be outdone, at a press event at Marvel Studios yesterday in Burbank, THR reports that Kevin Feige confirmed that Marvel Studios will be heading back to Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

This wouldn’t be huge news in a normal year – considering the studio has only skipped a handful of times, including 2015 – they’re usually a staple in Hall H. However, with D23 taking place so close to the convention (July 14–16 for D23 compared to SDCC’s July 19-July 23), many speculated that this was Disney’s way of taking all of their toys (and promotion) home to their own convention. For Marvel Studios, at least, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

There’s plenty of films on the horizon for the studio, including Thor: Ragnarok (November 2017), Black Panther (February 2018), Avengers: Infinity War (May 2018), Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 2018), and even a Captain Marvel and a still-untitled Avengers film in 2019. That should be more than enough to split the announcements, footage, and general excitement between the two conventions.

So breathe easy, Marvel fans.

    I have always skipped the Marvel Studios panel but I think I will finally make the gargantuan effort to attend.

  • David

    I am still hoping for a Disney/Star Wars announcement for this year too!

  • Kyle

    That would happen at D23.

  • Investigatin Detective

    Always worth it if you can get in. You just have to slog through an entire day of panels. Normally easy but some years have been rougher than others.

    Exactly. Especially since D23 is the week before SDCC.

  • maxhdrm

    That would depend on what day (or hopefully days) Marvel would be there. I want pictures/autographs. Panels are almost irrelevant (or the obsessive lines) seeing as how most of the info posts almost immediately online and again only on Saturday typically. I’m personally tired of Sunday being the armpit of the convention with jokes-for-panels. Bring on the photo-ops and/or autographs and spread the darn things out among all days or just get rid of sunday all together.

  • There won’t be photo ops. There will be autographs — typically on the same day as the panel, which will likely be Saturday, but it’s a fight to get them.

    It would be awesome, but i could only get passes for Thursday and Sunday this year, so I guess I won’t see any of the “big” stuff, both armpits for me 🙂

  • Thinh Nguyen

    How would one score an opportunity for MCU autographs?

  • Benjamin Gonzalez

    I’m excited to attend another Hall H panel. I’m a D23 newb and don’t have high hopes in being able to get in the Anaheim panel (which I’m assuming will have more Marvel surprises in store than Hall H), but I consider myself to be even more fortunate that I even get to go to SDCC.

    Reading mixed comments about hall h, i know how it used to be so easy to get into it and being able see variety marvel panels but now if chance i wont wait over nite or long line but will try get in with a wristband if possible. i have chance volunteer so that is first then whatever can do after is cool.
