According to Deadline, Marvel Studios will not participate in Comic-Con At Home’s virtual event scheduled for July 22-26. The news will surely disappoint MCU fans, who were hoping to get some big announcements from the studio. It really shouldn’t come as a surprise because there had been no rumblings from insiders of their involvement since the event was announced.
For the first time in 50 years, San Diego Comic-Con was canceled back in April due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In an attempt to make it up to fans, the event’s organizers Comic-Con International announced they would be holding a free virtual event with over 300 online panels. Sadly, some of the biggest studios with properties that include DC and now Marvel will not participate.
No reason was given by Deadline on why they would not participate. With most of their projects like The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki and Shang-Chi attempting to resume production in the coming weeks and months, they simply might just have too much going on. My only hope is that we do not get any more delays and that an Eternals trailer comes out soon.
