Although last month, Ryan Penagos, Executive Editorial Director of Marvel Digital Media, told a fan on Twitter that assuming Marvel Studios had even a “12%” chance of attending WonderCon Anaheim 2015 was a “generous number” – that certainly didn’t mean that the comics powerhouse would have no presence at this year’s convention.
@KidCoulson That'd be a generous number. 🙂

And now, thanks to an announcement by Comic-Con International, we have a good idea of what that presence will look like.
Marvel Comics will be hosting two panels throughout the WonderCon weekend, including “Marvel: Next Big Thing” on Saturday, April 4, from 4PM-5PM. Here’s the official description, from the Toucan Blog:
From Star Wars to the Avengers, this panel has you covered! Join Editor Wil Moss, Sam Humphries (Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex), Greg Weisman (Star Wars: Kanan—The Last Padawan), Rick Remender (Avengers: Rage of Ultron), and other Mighty Marvel guests, as they take on questions about Marvel’s biggest series and events!
The second Marvel Comics panel will be on Sunday, April 5, from 11AM-12PM. Here’s the official description from the Toucan Blog:
