20th Century Fox has a love-hate relationship with San Diego Comic-Con. Of course, as a studio that has the X-Men property at its disposal, itâ€™s a great platform to share its upcoming big budget blockbusters. However, as one would expect, itâ€™s not exactly easy to keep things under wraps. When you have a room full 6,500 fans, someone is bound to sneak a recording of a trailer, and more often than not, that recording is bound to make it online.
Itâ€™s because of this reason that 20th Century Fox opted to sit out San Diego Comic-Conâ€™s legendary Hall H last year. The experience only bit them in the butts, and there didnâ€™t seem to be much incentive for them to come back. As such, there really didnâ€™t seem to be any expectation that theyâ€™d be coming back. Well, it looks like they must have some great stuff to show. According to the official SDCC website, Fox will be having a Hall H panel on July 20 at 11:30am.
As of right now, there are no details as to what they could be showing, but we could give a few guesses. Next year will see the release of three Marvel movies from them: The New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. While Dark Phoenix hasnâ€™t started production just yet, The New Mutants is set to beginning this month, and Deadpool 2 has already started shooting. While there likely wonâ€™t be extensive footage for these movies, thereâ€™s a good chance weâ€™ll be able to see something.
Of the two films, weâ€™re especially intrigued to see what The New Mutants has to offer. Given that we only got Deadpool last year, we have a good idea of what to expect already. The New Mutants is interesting in that it was initially pitched as more of a YA tale, but more recently, director Josh Boone has stated that it will have more of a horror edge than any of the other Fox Marvel films to date. Needless to say, they have our attention. Letâ€™s hope theyâ€™ll be able to keep it.
