Marvel is coming back to San Diego Comic-Con. After skipping the event last year to wrap up “Avengers: Endgame,” Marvel Studios is hosting a surprise panel in Hall H with studio president and producer Kevin Feige and “surprise panelists” to discuss the past and future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There will be plenty to talk about, from the climatic storylines in “Avengers: Endgame,” to the hints and easter eggs in “Spider-Man: Far From Home.” Marvel has been quiet about the studio’s Phase 4 plans up until this point, but there’s a small chance that we might get a few hints and clues about the next big stage in the MCU.
The studio took a well deserved primetime slot on the Saturday schedule this year, hosting the panel at 5:15 pm on July 20th. Fans might want to set a reminder to catch the headlines and be the first to learn about the MCU’s future plans.
Marvel hasn’t announced any exact details yet, but fans could see the Avengers take the stage to meet with fans to celebrate Endgame, and we might get release dates for the Phase 4 content. In the past, Marvel used San Diego Comic-Com to announce significant casting details, show clips, and reveal upcoming storylines. This year probably won’t be any different.
Not everything is a super secret in the Marvel universe, small details have leaked concerning projects like “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Doctor Strange 2,” “Black Panther 2,” and a standalone “Black Widow” film. San Diego Comic-Con could be the perfect place to make these Phase 4 films official, but we will have to wait until July 20th to find out.
The other projects reportedly in the works are a bit more secretive, and no exact details have been given at this time. These include a movie with “The Eternals,” and a new film with the character “Shang-Chi.” Plenty of casting rumors, from Angelina Jolie to Keanu Reeves have been tossed about over the past few months leading up to Comic-Con, and Marvel might make a few of them official.
San Diego Comic-Con runs from Thursday July 18th through July 21st, and can find more SDCC Headlines to stay on top of the announcements and trailers.
