After much speculation, it’s been revealed that Marvel Studios is once again returning to the San Diego Comic-Con with a major Hall H presentation at the end of July, after skipping last year’s event.

Marvel’s presentations at San Diego Comic-Con are legendary, as this is often when the studio reveals its lineup for the next few years for theatrical and Disney+ releases.  In addition, it features the cast of many of the Marvel projects, highlights new releases with first looks for those in attendance, and makes new announcements.

It was questionable if Marvel Studios would be returning for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, since, just a few weeks later, Marvel will also be taking part in the Studio Showcase presentation at the D23 Ultimate Fan Event.

Deadline hasn’t released any other details, such as when the panel will be taking or what will be announced, but the event is taking place between July 25th and 28th, with Marvel usually holding its major panel on the penultimate day.

Marvel has plenty of new projects coming up that could be showcased during the panel, including “Captain America: Brave New World” and “Thunderbolts”, which are due to be released in cinemas next year.   Also, the cast of “Fantastic Four” could easily be officially revealed at the event, as Kevin Feige has confirmed that filming will begin the movie the next day in London, England.

Also, that same weekend, “Deadpool & Wolverine” is released in cinemas, so an appearance by Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman would no doubt cause plenty of social media buzz to help sell more tickets for the movie.

There are also plenty of Disney+ projects that could be previewed at San Diego Comic-Con, including “Agatha All Along”, “Daredevil: Born Again”, “Ironheart” and “Wonder Man”.  In addition to some animated shows like “Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man”, “Eyes Of Wakanda”, and the third season of “What If?”.

With Disney hosting its own studio showcase at the Honda Center on Friday, August 9th, 2024, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the major announcements are held back for that presentation. Since that event will also feature Disney’s other studios, like Lucasfilm, 20th Century Studios, Pixar, and Disney, it can discuss some of the projects in a lot more depth at SDCC.

Plus, any previews at SDCC could also be shown at the D23 event since most of the previews at SDCC are only shown to those in attendance.

It could also be a great opportunity for Marvel to update fans on its plans for the upcoming “Avengers” movies and give an updated timeline for when shows and films are going to be released since the last timeline was drastically impacted due to multiple reasons.  As we can see from the timeline shown at SDCC in 2022, half of the projects from Phase Five still haven’t been released, and Phase Six projects are a long way off.

Roger’s Take:  Hosting two major presentations within a few weeks of one another doesn’t sound ideal, but realistically, with there being just one showcase event at this year’s D23 event, Marvel’s only going to have a fraction of the time it needs to address its current lineup.  I’m not expecting too many new projects to be revealed, as Marvel is slowing down the number of releases and has been burned too many times by revealing too many projects too far in advance.

As with any major presentation, it’s generally better to expect nothing and not let your hopes get too hyped up since it’s often impossible for the announcements you want to see revealed actually to happen.  It’s also worth noting that Marvel’s Hall H presentations aren’t live-streamed, so not everything shown at the event will be seen by those of us at home.

What do you think Marvel will show at the San Diego Comic-Con?  Let me know on social media!
