It’s been nearly three years since Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios last appeared at San Diego Comic Con’s Hall H. While it was previously believed that the company would be missing the event again in lieu of a bigger presentation at Disney’s D23 later this year, today Feige confirmed that Marvel will be making an appearance after all.
Feige made the announcement during the worldwide virtual press conference for Thor: Love and Thunder. He said:
“We’ll be at Comic-Con next month, which we’re excited about. The first time since we were on stage there [since] three years ago talking about this movie and many others. And now, I think almost everything we discussed three years ago has now been released. So yes, we’re excited to go and talk about the future.”
Shortly after Feige made the announcement, Collider’s Steven Weintraub shared even more details about the studio’s plans for the convention. He says that the news has been kept under wraps for over a month and that the studio is both “planning on going big” and “bringing one movie.”
You don’t have to be a genius to see that the film everyone will most likely be treated to a sneak peak of is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. It is the next MCU film set to hit theaters after next weekend’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
Unfortunately, those are all the details we have at the moment, but now Marvel fans have something exciting to look forward to that isn’t as far away as September or D23.
This year’s San Diego Comic Con commences Thursday July 21st and runs all the way until Sunday July 24th.
