Marvel Skipping San Diego Comic-Con; Will DC Step It Up?
Marvel will not be attending Comic-Con this year, leaving many to believe that DC Entertainment will step up and fill the Hall H-sized gap in this year’s lineup.
Marvel Skips SDCC 2015
Marvel Studios have become a Comic-Con staple, appearing most every year with star-studded panels to promote their various Marvel Universe films. The last time Marvel missed Comic Con was in 2011. Last year, at SDCC 2014, Marvel brought out the entire cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron and introduced Josh Brolin as Thanos.
Two years ago, Tom Hiddleston appeared at SDCC as Loki, and in 2012 the entire Guardians of the Galaxy cast was unveiled at Comic Con. Needless to say, Marvel is a big crowd pleaser, and seems to be a Hall H tradition. Unfortunately for Marvel fans, Marvel will not be making a stop at Hall H in July. While skipping Comic Con may be disappointing for fans, it makes sense for the studio, which is currently enjoying the massive success of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
DC And Warner Bros. At SDCC: Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad
The question is: will Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment step up to fill the gap left by Marvel. At Comic-Con 2014, DC gathered Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck, but the powerful threesome only had time to smile and wave at the crowd of Hall H before being swept away. While another – and hopefully longer – Batman v Superman panel has not yet been confirmed, it’s more than likely that director Zack Snyder and at least a few of the stars will put on a panel in Hall H.
Fans are also hoping or a Suicide Squad sneak peek and/or cast appearance, as the stars of the villainous film has already been announced and teased in cast photos. Furthermore, as DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. continue to further their agenda of creating a cinematic universe, rumor has it the studio may have a few surprise announcements up their sleeves pertaining to previously announced films, Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
