Marvel Studios Will Reportedly Skip Hall H Presentation At This Year's San Diego Comic-Con

A disappointing update for those hoping for some major MCU reveals and announcements at San Diego Comic-Con this year, as Marvel Studios has reportedly decided to skip its Hall H presentation...

Marvel Studios returned to San Diego Comic-Con last year after a missing out on 2021 due to the pandemic, and made some major announcements for future Phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Fans were hoping for more of the same during this year's event, but The Wrap has now confirmed that Marvel will be skipping its Hall H presentation - where first looks at upcoming movies and TV shows via trailers and posters usually debut - and focus all attention on the convention floor.

So, while we may still see a poster or two and maybe learn a little more about some planned projects, we probably won't be getting any significant news regarding Fantastic Four, X-Men or any other highly-anticipated MCU films.

The ongoing WGA strike and potential SAG-AFTRA strike seem to be at least partially responsible, as they make it very difficult for actors/directors/writers to do any kind of promotion for their projects. The reports also mentions that Universal and HBO will also most likely sit out SDCC this year.

We don't know if Warner Bros./DC Studios will have a presence, but if the Screen Actors Guild strike does go ahead, there's a good chance we'll also be crossing them off the list.

San Diego Comic-Con will take place the weekend of July 21.

HBO and Universal are skipping too
SDCC this summer
Vigor - 6/20/2023, 8:05 PM
@GhostDog - e3 will look like that too
GhostDog - 6/20/2023, 8:07 PM
@Vigor - yup. I feel like E3 should just end at this point
mastakilla39 - 6/20/2023, 9:19 PM
@GhostDog - I mean the crowds of thots and cosplayer will still be there, so its always going to be busy. Just don't expect any cbm announcements then your fine. Its back to the old days of comics and mangas like it should be.
Sabre81 - 6/20/2023, 11:44 PM
@mastakilla39 - Yeah, I remember my mouth being dry when the tease/trailer for Avengers: Infinity War dropped and through adrenaline coursing my body actually got me wanting more. Now, these days, not so fussed.

Just hope with all the setbacks Blade still turns out good.
WruceBayne - 6/20/2023, 11:41 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - it’s not looking good for Blade. I understand Marvel had a 10 year plan and they definitely succeeded. With that being said, I think they waited too long to bring in other characters like Blade and The Fantastic 4. With Blade, you would have to explain where all the vampires were all these years and with The Fantastic Four(if it’s not an origin story) where have they been all this time and why haven’t their influence been felt in the MCU if they’re from the 60’s like it’s been rumored.

Well, if DC/WB shows up, they can finally win something.
incredibleTalk - 6/20/2023, 8:50 PM
@MannyBothans - DC / WB stands for Don't Come / Why Bother....

MCUKnight11 - 6/20/2023, 7:44 PM
I'm fine with this. Let the WGA strike reach it's conclusion and worry about a potential SAG strike before you make big announcements.
NinnesMBC - 6/20/2023, 7:45 PM
It's possible there will not be anything from DC/WB as well.

Godzilla2000Zer - 6/20/2023, 7:45 PM
Eh we already know what's Marvel's doing I could give less of frick.
MCUKnight11 - 6/20/2023, 7:45 PM
Worst part about this is no end in sight for F4 rumors. Not as bummed out about Superman since I'm confident it's going to be Corenswet.
CoHost - 6/20/2023, 9:32 PM
@MCUKnight11 - Who do you think will be Lois Lane? My pick's Jodie Comer, if she won't be Sue Storm.
Taonrey - 6/20/2023, 9:48 PM
@CoHost - I'm going to be honest, I hope not, Jodie needs to plays a hero or a villain. Lois is great but I wouldn't want that for Jodie, I think Rachel Brosnahan is actually the perfect choice look wise and she a good actor.
CoHost - 6/20/2023, 10:14 PM
@Taonrey - Brosnahan already played her in Maisel. It'd be typecasting and I don't think a method actor like herself would want that.
Taonrey - 6/22/2023, 2:21 AM
@CoHost - she already voiced her interest
CoHost - 6/22/2023, 4:00 AM
@Taonrey - Well, she also has no job at the moment so she wouldn't necessarily refuse it if it meant some kind of work.

You've seen that recent episode of Barry? Where Sally was desperate to be in the latest blockbuster to boost her career? It's a fun one. It's kinda similar to this.
Feralwookiee - 6/20/2023, 7:45 PM
No Avengers movie until at least 2026. No word on whether Kang will offically be recast.
Ant Man 3 flopped. The Marvels will likely underperform. There's not much to be excited about with the MCU right now.

An interesting little article about RDJ's time in jail.
DrReedRichards - 6/20/2023, 7:46 PM
So they've yet to lock the F4 casting...

MCUKnight11 - 6/20/2023, 7:47 PM
@DrReedRichards - Or they already have but are concerned they can't be brought out on stage because of the strike.
DrReedRichards - 6/20/2023, 7:59 PM
@MCUKnight11 -

Matchesz - 6/20/2023, 10:13 PM
@DrReedRichards - too many gender swapping/race bending options in a team of 4 to calculate, they’re probably having a meltdown as we speak.
DrReedRichards - 6/20/2023, 10:16 PM
@Matchesz -

You're adorable.
Amaru - 6/20/2023, 11:24 PM
@Matchesz - You reek of insecurity.
MCUKnight11 - 6/20/2023, 7:47 PM
Can someone explain to me why SAG would go on strike? Actors already get payed ludicrous amounts of millions. Florence Pugh is getting payed 10 mil for Thunderbolts and something unknown.
EnergyVamp - 6/20/2023, 7:50 PM
@MCUKnight11 - Greed. Hollywood would improve if they took money from the actors and spread it to everyone else. Isn't that what Hollywood celebs believe in? That is until its their money.
valmic - 6/20/2023, 7:52 PM
@MCUKnight11 - I’m an actor. I get paid no where near ludicrous amounts. Not every actor is famous
mountainman - 6/20/2023, 8:31 PM
@SafeSpace - Champaign socialists never live their values. Rules for thee not for me.
MrKayDeeBee - 6/20/2023, 10:19 PM
@MCUKnight11 - That's only the top 1% of actors that get paid. Most working actors barely clear 25,000/year
JonC - 6/22/2023, 8:52 PM
@MrKayDeeBee - at best, i would call that a part-time job
