Excelsior! For the first time in three years, Marvel is returning to San Diego Comic-Con this summer, with all-star panels about Spider-Man (web-heads this is for you), AXE Judgment Day, Women of Marvel (which has inspired audiences for several years), and more!
Marvel last stopped by the San Diego Convention Center in 2019, after sitting out the 2020 and 2021 Comic-Con@Home virtual events, and last year’s stripped-back November event. The news of Marvel’s SDCC return was first confirmed by Marvel Studios HBIC (that’s head boss in charge) Kevin Feige in June during a virtual press conference for Thor: Love and Thunder. “We’ll be at Comic-Con next month, which we’re excited about,” said Feige, according to Deadline. “So yes, we’re excited to go and talk about the future.”
We still don’t know much about the Marvel Studios panels happening this summer (so far, only Disney TV has posted its panel schedule, which includes a panel for the upcoming animated series, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur on Thursday, July 21st panel from 2:15 to 3:15). However, Marvel Comics has just revealed their SDCC panel line-up. For more details on Marvel’s SDCC plans, check out the press release:
