Marvel may not be in Hall H this year, but they’re still heading back to San Diego Comic-Con with panels, signings, merchandise, and more.
You’ll find them on the show floor at Booth #2329, with giveaways, signings (still TBA), and more — and just like last year, they’ll have a second booth #2519 for this year’s exclusives. They also mention that fans should “stay tuned for additional information about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and MARVEL SNAP at San Diego Comic-Con”, but we’re unclear what that means.
They’re also bringing tons of comic talent and a look at the upcoming role-playing game for four days of panels.
