Marvel Studios won’t be at Hall H this year for Comic-Con. The news came from Latino Review, and it comes as no surprise considering Marvel’s moves over the last year. Marvel created their own convention last year, which was where they introduced both Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Why pay so much money for Comic-Con when they can just sell their own convention?
However, for those worried, this is really just Marvel movies and they should still have plenty of representation at the convention for their comics. Honestly, this might be for the better. If Comic-Con weeds out a little of the movie entertainment, they might lose some interest from mainstream fans, but it is supposed to be about comics, and they have been pushed aside lately.
For those that just want to see the movie stuff, don’t worry because DC Comics will be there in full effect. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad should both have major presence at this year’s festival. And, honestly, those movies need more advertising to succeed than anything Marvel does because Marvel will sell itself based on its recent output.
Sadly, that means we won’t get this at Comic-Con this year
