Marvel Studios will not be heading to San Diego Comic-Con for the usual presentation in Hall H in July, The Hollywood Reporter he confirmed.

The Disney-owned studio has long maintained it will only participate in the scam when it can really deliver (Marvel panels are by far considered the highlight of most years, with participants camping out overnight for a seat in the 6,500-seat hall). The casing first reported the news.

In 2022, the head of Marvel Studios has prepared a huge slate for his Multiverse Saga. This year’s convention, which runs July 20-23, comes as Marvel has put some titles on hold, including Lightning, Lama AND Daredevil: Born Again. Work isn’t expected to begin until after the writers’ strike, and as a result, Disney has also pushed back some of its key films to a random release date announced last week.

The news comes at a challenging time for Comic-Con, which last year returned to its traditional in-person event after moving largely virtual in 2020 and 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic. The convention, which at its peak can attract around 160,000 attendees, is dealing with a writers’ strike that would prevent showrunners of TV series from sitting on panels to watch their work. It also faces the looming specter of a potential SAG-AFTRA strike, which would also prevent actors from participating. A SAG-AFTRA strike could begin anytime after June 30, when the union contract with the studios expires.

Even if it skips Hall H, Marvel Studios will still have a presence on the convention floor, and while the big panels get much of the attention, Comic-Con is also known for creative cosplay and a chance to connect with smaller property artists and creators.
