Marvel Studios will return to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time since 2003, in order to reveal what is coming up for Phase 4 and beyond. With more than 12 movies and television shows included in Phase 4, the expectations for Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige’s presentation at this convention are high.
Before the pandemic hit, Marvel Studios took the stage at Comic-Con. Announcements regarding Phase 4 were made. This exploded the web and shook up Comic-Con as MCU’s list grew exponentially. Starting off with the reveal of WandaVision on Disney+ and ending with a bang thanks to news about Mahershala Ali’s Blade becoming a reality, Marvel fans were left immensely satisfied with what to expect for the future.
Now nearly the entire slate of announced panels has been seen in theatres and on Disney+. Expectations are high about what Marvel will present at its first Comic-Con panel for three years.
However, the MCU might be a little disappointed by the recent update that teases what is in store this weekend.
Marvel Studios Keeping Conservative at SDCC
Deadline revealed that Marvel Studios may not bring as much news as originally expected during its panels at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, which takes place from Friday, July 22 to Sunday, July 24.
The studio will likely bring looks to November’s Black Panther movie: Wakanda Forever , and the She-Hulk film next month: Attorney at Law ,. However, there might not be any more entries. The belief is that Marvel plans to save some of the bigger announcements for this year’s D23, specifically pertaining to newer projects.
What’s Next for Marvel at Comic-Con 2022?
Marvel Studios makes the most significant announcements at San Diego Comic-Con. This is exactly what the fans expected for this event’s second run since 2019.. Marvel seems to be enjoying this event even though it is disappointing for those who are there and also from at home.
Looking at the panel that Marvel will be hosting, it seems logical for two of the entries to the Marvel Panel to get the spotlight as they are the next major projects on Disney+ and in theaters. She-Hulk will bring one of the MCU’s most exciting new characters to the Disney+ sphere in less than a month, introducing some veterans along for the ride, while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever follows up on one of the MCU’s most successful solo movies ever.
Unfortunately the disappointment is that many of the shows and movies that remain mysterious will probably continue that way throughout the weekend.
All three sequels to next year have lots of exciting developments yet in store and production on Blade remains almost as dark as when it was announced at Comic-Con 2019.. Fantastic Four remains in search of its director, and the highly-anticipated lead quartet of actors. Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool3 continues to be one of MCU’s most anticipated new entries.
Whatever happens at Comic-Con, Marvel Studios is sure to bring plenty of excitement for fans in the future. And if it means that more goodies are still in store for D23 in September, then Marvel Studios will have the attention of the entire movie world that weekend.
