It’s always a bit of a crapshoot as to whether or not Marvel Studios will be having a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Since they’re owned by Disney, they’ve managed to have plenty of other events where they can peddle their wares, and so dropping the ridiculous amount of many required to make an overall presence at the legendary Hall H isn’t always necessary.
Last year, the studio had a panel, and with that in mind, the prospect of another panel this year seemed unlikely. But now it’s been confirmed. Speaking with Collider, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said:
“We’re not going to Hall H this year. It will be an off year… which is what we did after Avengers 1 and what we’ve done every few years. There will be a 10th anniversary presence at Comic-Con but [no Hall H panel.]”
That wasn’t necessarily the biggest piece of news that Feige dropped in his interview. I’d say the bigger reveal was this:
“[We’re] not going to announce any post-Avengers 4 movies until hopefully after Avengers 4, which is another reason we’re not going to Comic-Con.”
I don’t know about you, but despite there being a handful of films still left on their slate, I love knowing what’s coming down the pike. While this makes sense for them to do (no need to steal the thunder from their current phase just yet), it seems a bit odd.
We’re used to knowing years ahead what films are coming, and while we do have some dates known for movies like Spider-Man: Homecoming 2, not knowing their full context is a unique feeling for the MCU. Admittedly, it is kind of cool not fully knowing, and that day where they reveal another ambitious slate of 10 films will be one for the history books.
Do you think it’s smart of Marvel Studios to wait until after Avengers 4 until revealing Phase 4? Let us know your thoughts down below!
