Yesterday, Deadline reported that Marvel Studios would be making their grand return to San Diego Comic-Con next month.
We’re hearing that Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe is heading back to San Diego Comic-Con after sitting out Hall H last year.
A lot of us had assumed with Phase 3 being wrapped up after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home we’d start hearing the next wave of plans, something Kevin Feige has said would be the case.
Fandango’s Erik Davis was able to land some quotes from Kevin Feige this morning about the report from Deadline, which he didn’t dismiss or attempt to debunk as false reporting.

There is certainly plenty of things they could reveal at Comic-Con, one summer they closed the Marvel Studios panel by announcing that Brie Larson was cast as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel which got a massive response from the crowd.
Kevin had done something similar during the Phase 3 reveal (outside of SDCC) where he brought-out Chadwick Boseman during the Captain America: Civil War announcement to reveal he’d be playing T’Challa aka Black Panther along with the character being introduced in the movie.
A couple of big announcements that we theorize that could go down include The Eternals cast being revealed (maybe some concept artwork could be shown) along with a slight chance of the Shang-Chi casting as well if that is indeed going to begin filming this fall.
With Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow well into production, the attendees might be given a sneak peek at sizzle reel footage, something they’ve done in past years. Black Widow is said to be kicking-off Phase 4 and the next wave of movies.
I’m not terribly convinced we’ll get the entire Phase 4 slate revealed, but more likely the details on the six films the trades have confirmed are coming next. However, there certainly could be some surprises mentioned as Marvel now has the X-Men, Deadpool, Silver Surfer, and Fantastic Four under their roof.
HN Entertainment will be attending Comic-Con next month, so we’ll keep you posted what they end up announcing and showing off in Hall H during their panel.
