Title: Marvel Studios no-show for SDCC 2015
Post by: vegasndn on March 09, 2015, 12:13:28 AM
Just saw this on Twitter and I know some people plan their Saturday around this but it looks like Marvel might not be a sdcc this year, hopefully Marvel will show up.
  @Crazy4ComicCon: James Gunn on FB about Marvel and Comic-Con... It was as if a million nerds cried out in anguish...

Wow! Totally shocked. I imagine there are a lot of disappointed fans.

I'm thinking that he was just being sarcastic but you never know. The Marvel universe is getting bigger so I would think they would be at sdcc unless they holding back for D23.

Wasn't this somehow expected though? I do remember reading some time ago that Marvel wanted to leave SDCC, especially after the Disney buy-out. Their Phase 3 event last October could have been a sort of experiment of sorts, and since it was successful, they will most likely have an independent event, or be fully incorporated into the D23 Expo.

With that being said, while I am somewhat sad, I am grateful to be able to experience more of SDCC 2015 without the chaos of Marvel on Saturday. I will miss Marvel TV though!

Post by: citizenmilton on March 09, 2015, 02:50:18 AM
In a recent FB post, "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn said that Marvel wouldn't be going to SDCC.

I doubt this means Marvel Comics - can't imagine an SDCC without them having a presence at the con. I also doubt this means no presence for Marvel Studios related stuff at the main Marvel booth. I'm assuming this is limited to a "no Hall H" level of appearance.

But... the story broke online a few hours ago, it'll be interesting to see how quickly Marvel does damage control / clarification.

It looks like two people had the same idea and may have potentially crossed into The Outer Limits!  (They were on the same brain wave!)

I'll merge this newer, duplicate thread with the slightly more established one.  For the merged thread, I'll retain this thread's title (Marvel Studios no-show for SDCC 2015?")  I'll also move this thread from "General Discussion" to "Programming, Panels, and Lines."

It's a D23 year. So, it wouldn't be a HUGE shock but IMO, those two shows are so different. But then again, they have announced all their movies. I guess they could announce some casting news and show footage like always.


And I'm sure Marvel comics will be there. Even when Marvel doesn't do MCU panels/booth, they still bring comic guests.

I'm gonna be one of the guys that thinks that there will be a panel, even given what's been said by Mr. Gunn.  Agents of Shield, how well the Peggy Carter mini-series went, and then Ant-Man is being released the week after, I really can't see Marvel totally skipping the standard Saturday.  If they did, it would give a *huge* amount of traction to the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe (DCCU?) so I can't see Marvel letting that happen.  Add the Netflix series and there's really a ton of stuff.  Now whether they do all that in H or 20 or somewhere else...dunno...

(Note that the above is not an invitation to cause a whole Marvel v. DC war here).

Post by: YouThinkMeMad on March 09, 2015, 07:02:24 AM
Marvel can bring their TV shows without bringing their movies. You can do one without the other.  And with Netflix, it would depend on when the next series is out. Since they release all the episodes at once, it's not like they can tease something unless the new series isn't out yet.

Post by: Iris on March 09, 2015, 07:15:43 AM
I know I'll be very disappointed if they don't do a Hall H panel and it definitely could change a bit in my planning if it's true. I would not be completely surprised if they skip but I would have thought if they were going to test it out it would be 2013 when things were already a proven success instead of going as large as they did. Especially as I just would think they would want to introduce the more chance-y upcoming movies in their timeline, even just briefly, to the SDCC audience rather than elsewhere at least once.

Of course, they're bringing Star Wars to D23 this year I imagine so maybe they're hoping that combined it will be a big enough draw.

I am hoping he meant it as a joke/sarcastically though I have to think he would know how things read in writing, especially on the internet.

Bad news for non-hall H ppl too!   There could be 1000s less ppl queued for hall h, therefore adding congestion elsewhere.

He could very well be messing with everyone too. I am betting on that for now.

Very true.

My guess is that there will be enough of a panel line up to keep people waiting.
Title: Re: Marvel Studios no-show for SDCC 2015?
Post by: Iris on March 09, 2015, 09:32:26 AM
The line is always so huge I doubt there will be an issue with them going to full capacity. Of course, there's still the issue that there will be those people who don't stay in line in the hopes they get in later.

I'm also curious about this decision because you'd think SDCC would be the perfect venue for any Spider-Man news they could give...

Post by: Mel on March 09, 2015, 09:42:33 AM
Marvel is Disney now, for better or for worse, and Disney is very smart about keeping it on brand and in its own realm. With D23 maybe we just have to expect that Marvel and Star Wars will never be at SDCC again. They certainly don't need the publicity for their movies, but they could use the draw for their convention.
Title: Re: Marvel Studios no-show for SDCC 2015?
Post by: DaveG on March 09, 2015, 09:49:20 AM
Keep in mind that Star Wars is now Disney as well, so for all their franchises they're going to do what they think is best for their overall marketing strategy.They may start to think they've outgrown SDCC.  Does anyone really think their box office will suffer if they're not there?

Having said that, I'm sure they'll have a presence.  It just may be scaled back.

Agreed.  There will still be lots of stuff there.   Just not the actors if they don't have panels.

Is it bad this was my first reaction? I like the Marvel movies and tv shows a lot, but I'm not a Hall H person, at least on Saturday.  If there isn't anything BIG in Hall H Saturday, the effect will definitely spill over to everything else, making the other draws even harder to get into.

Sony could still offer Spider-Man I believe.

GOT/WD usually dominate Friday.  In the past it's been WB, Fox and Marvel on Saturday.

I am way fine with both MCU and Star Wars pulling out of SDCC and only being at D23. It might free up some badges and make way for others things. People coming only for MCU/SW can concentrate on D23 up the road. It makes sense for Disney too. Why would you haul out your goodies at SDCC when your own convention is a month later?

Do you guys think some people will return badges now?

I think it would be a shame if people did because they thought Hall H is all the show had to offer, but it wouldn't surprise me if people did.

There's 6 posts in a row on the CCI FB page about Marvel and Hall H.

Well, it would weed out all the people that seem to be hated for being there for "the wrong reasons".....though I believe there is no wrong reason and everyone belongs there. I'm sure some people do bank their whole trip on the MCU stuff though. There is no one thing that could pull out and make me not want to go......but I know it could for some people.

I'm with you Mel, there is no one thing that could be pulled that would stop me from going to SDCC. I never have enough time to see and do all that I want to do, let alone stay in my hotel and sleep for eight hours. I look forward to MCU to help make the exhibit floor a little less crowded on Saturday, that is why I am disappointed.

I did buy myself a D23 ticket but that was mostly because I have never been and want to experience it at least once.

That's kind of jumping the gun? They haven't confirmed or denied anything. It's still early. I don't know when the deadline for refunds is though. There is plenty of other stuff to do anyway. There may be some other cool panels instead that day. They probably aren't going to have a resale for refunded badges so that doesn't really help anyone else.

I bet they will still have a big booth. I took James Gunn's reply to mean Marvel Studios aka the filmmaking branch of Marvel. I'm sure they will have a big booth still and be hocking all their wares and whatnot. Just it looks like maybe no big Marvel panel and big signings from the stars at the booth.

Part of me hopes they will skip as it opens up the Con for lots of other stuff I never seem to have time to do.  And I can understand them wanting to hold back for their own D23 convention.  But then it seems like they are missing out on a lot of free publicity.  Lately, the mainstream media is all over SDCC.  Not so much D23.

True but I feel like at this point Marvel is kinda...beyond that? They don't really "need" the attention. They showed they can kinda do whatever they want when they had that event last year where they announced their MCU plans. The press were ALL OVER that.

Exactly. It's one thing when you're promoting these major names coming to your expo ahead of time to put the public eye on their convention and gain attendees... but they don't. I dont think I have once in my life have heard about D23 aside from just the name, and I'm a big Disney fan :/ Meanwhile, I've been hearing about SDCC for years before I went.

Just seems like a weird move to pull their films from the biggest pop culture convention in the country, that is likely the largest gathering of Marvel fans in one place LOL. That counts for online attention too!

edit: YouThinkMeMad makes a good point though... Marvel did already release so much content...maybe they wouldn't have anything to talk about.

But they've skipped SDCC before. This isn't something 100% new.

Do I think D23 is as "fan friendly" as SDCC? No. And I expect whatever panel they have to be kinda boring. Unless because they're ONLY doing D23, they put more into it.

I know anyone can purchase tickets and attend but since it's a Disney event showing off their own stuff, I'd expect it to lean more towards press/industry.

Completely heartbroken. Was hoping for/looking forward to the Marvel Hall H panel the most this year!  :'(

I'm glad I like enough other things that I'll be able to keep busy at the con without Marvel stuff. But it still really sucks to hear your favorite and most anticipated thing won't be happening.

Very true that this may overcrowd other areas unless they plan a full day of panels with a lot of pull in Hall H! But maybe it'll help solve some of the line camping issues.

While this sucks, it lets me breathe a little not having to worry about getting in hall h. If there's no marvel or Star Wars then I'll probably be avoiding hall h all together. Though a suicide squad panel would be cool.

And they did Antman last year so they wouldn't do another panel. That really only leaves cap 3 and doctor strange and I've heard there isn't any footage to show for those.

Yep, Marvel has skipped several years and their lack of presence was very noticeable in the Exhibit Hall.  IIRC, it had to do with a conflict with Diamond over Previews.    For awhile, Marvel was an insert with Previews and not part of the actual mag.  How all that connects, I do not know, but I remember hearing it over and over.

Those D23 Marvel panels look so staged and not very spontaneous.

Kind of off-topic--
I read several complaints about the last D23 Expo in 2013 from die-hard Disney fans who didn't like how the Marvel panels brought in the bigger crowds.  :-\

I could see some D23 goers thinking that as some comics fans have about crowds,  but as a comics fan myself, i have more of a "come one come all" perspective.  My first comic convention as a kid was a bunch of ppl sitting at card tables in a high school gym.  Bored out of my mind. So i say welcome movie studios,  tv shows, cosplayers and all that is pop culture.

And say it ain't so Marvel!!! I may not be physically in hall h but i do enjoy the hoopla and watching the panels on YouTube.

Wasn't there talk 2 years ago about Marvel not having a Hall H panel or at least not having that big of a panel and then they ended up pulling that whole surprise Tom Hiddleston in full Loki character appearance and it turned into what a lot of people think was the best Marvel panel they ever put on. So until Marvel officially confirms they are not putting on a panel and it's not on the schedule i wouldn't panic and just wait and see what happens. and even if it's not on the schedule they could even pull off some sort of surprise appearance. They may like to surprise people after the huge reaction they got two years ago.

So until Marvel officially confirms they are not putting on a panel and it's not on the schedule i wouldn't panic and just wait and see what happens. and even if it's not on the schedule they could even pull off some sort of surprise appearance. They may like to surprise people after the huge reaction they got two years ago.

 

They also had 3 movies with footage to show that year. What will they have this year?

To be honest, one of the main reasons why I'm going to SDCC is Marvel Studios, but with talk about how they won't be showing up I'm actually kind of glad??? This will make my Friday and Saturday so much more loose and I'm kind of happy I'll be able to see other things.

The only thing that they could show would be something from Ant-Man. They could do something for the next Captain America movie even though they probably won't have any footage they could still talk about it and have some actors from it there if they wanted. But really with the way the release of the next movies are scheduled they really won't have a lot for a panel anyway so people probably shouldn't really be that upset if they don't have a panel.

That's what I was getting at though. They had a lot to show at comic con in 2013. Would have made more sense for them to show up then then it would this year. Doubt theyd do another Antman panel too. They didn't do two Guardians panels.

Two yeas ago, they had just started shooting GotG 10 days before SDCC.  In that 10 days they put together a trailer, and they flew the cast in from London, although that was before they had officially cast Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Last year, they had a teaser for Ant-Man even though they had yet to start filming.

The fact that they don't have any footage ready to go this soon before SDCC doesn't seem like it would be an issue for Marvel.

I don't see them showing Ant-Man AGAIN at SDCC. It might work for D23 because it would be "new" to them but I've probably seen Ant-Man stuff 3 or 4 times now thanks to SDCC and NYCC/C2E2.

It's all conjecture at this point but Marvel will still want to be sure that DC isn't the only buzz out of at SDCC.  Can Marvel not show up at SDCC?  Yeah, but that seems unlikely even though they have done so in the past.  Marvel Television can still show up with SHIELD, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.  Marvel Publishing will still more than likely have a booth.  I still find it hard to believe that Marvel Studios will not have Captain America: Civil War or Doctor Strange.

Or D23 could be perfect timing for Marvel since it's after SDCC. They could easily steal the DC thunder by announcing Captain Marvel and Spider-Man casting (if they can do that without Sony. I have no idea how that works for stuff like conventions).  Plus share footage of Civil War.

While I would completely understand Marvel Studios' motives for not attending, I would feel bad for anyone who purchased a Saturday badge hoping to attend their Hall H panel if this ends up being true. Of course, as a first timer, maybe it will be a little less intense, haha! I do wonder how this would effect the rest of the con, though. I'm assuming that in Hall H, Friday would remain TV-centric and Saturday would remain film-centric, but I'm curious to see what SDCC would schedule in Marvel's place.

This article on bleeding cool makes a good point i had not thought of. The press conference at el capitan was successful and generated a lot of buzz on it's own. So that could also contribute to the thought that they don't really need sdcc.

IMO sdcc would be more fun as an actor/director getting up in front of 1000s of excited fans. But that may not factor much into Marvel's decision

Dc didn't have a movie presence last year aside from like the 10 minutes Snyder came out with Cavill and Affleck and showers the brief clip so go ahead and let DC have a big movie presence this year. Marvel can still do its TV panels.

Another reason why Marvel Studios may not go to SDCC could be this: the Fantastic Four film reboot and upcoming X-Men films. Unless you have been hiding under a rock, it has been known that Marvel overall (studio and comic books) want the film rights back badly. They will not support these two brands as much, if at all. Just look, the FF comic book series is ending. Not due to the lack of popularity, but to make the brand weaker; and trying to have less people show up for the new film. The X-Men comic books haven't been all that lately. Marvel won't do toys that are connected to the films. Overall, it's called sabotage.

 If Marvel sees going to SDCC could help these films more, among other things, they won't show up. Until the official word comes up, wait and see but be ready for Marvel not showing up, too. Another thing, face it folks, not every company needs SDCC and it is cheaper to go elsewhere, regardless of demand at the Con. Furthermore, this news pretty much lowers the odds for Star Wars showing up too. Why would Disney do 3 cons in total, if it is already doing two? Star Wars Celebration and D23. Never say never, but it does not look good.

The xmen and fantastic four movie would have nothing to do with this at all. They had a XMen DOFP panel and an Amazibg SpiderMan 2 panel in 2013 along with panels for Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America WS and Thor Dark World.

As soon as James Gunn's comment hit, I immediately went through all the facts and logic for why or why not they would be there (I literally spend most of my days at my internship doing this. It's such habit to immediately do it. )I absolutely understand why they wouldn't. In fact, I went to El Capitan for the timeline announcements (and it was amazing.) It went over so well and they absolutely do not need SDCC. Their advertising campaigns have generally shown this quite well.

That said, I've always spent so much time planning around Hall H on Saturday and Marvel. If they aren't there, I will absolutely have an amazing time and my schedule will be so much less stressful. But I'll be sad to not have that expectation of the huge thrill of knowing Marvel's panel is still coming up and the excitement ramping up to extremes because of it.

I'm hoping Marvel will at least address it soon. Primarily because if they don't have a Hall H panel my group won't be camping out the same way as we have for Hall H. This means that Bayfront isn't a big deal for us and could really change our hotel requests. Also, I just feel this was not a fantastic way for the news to potentially break. Especially because there's so much unsure and unknown based on his statement. Of course they probably won't confirm or deny for months still.

I'll wait and won't get too worked up until I hear officially from Marvel but if this is the end for them at Hall H on Saturday I want to offer my thanks for some of the best most memorable times of my SDCC experience. I did 3 SDCC's before finally braving Hall H as I heard the horror stories and simply did not feel it was worth it but 2 years ago I braved Hall H due to my daughters actually wanting to go to the Hunger Games Panel but of course we stayed through and had an awesome experience seeing Tom Hiddleston doing Loki live! After that experience we did it again last year and seeing all the Avengers on stage was super cool too! So I won't be upset or bitter but more appreciative and thankful for the wonderful memories and experience! And as many have noted, there's no rule that says once you don't go for a year you never come back.

Definitely, and it's pretty damm ingenious of them IMO.  My wife, who loves the Marvel movies but doesn't read/know anything about the comics, now kind of knows what Inhumans are because of "Agents of SHIELD," and I suspect her knowledge of Inhumans will grow over the next year or two

And all in a D23 year no less!
That was the year Tom H. came out in full Loki costume to kick off the panel, and they ended the panel with the AGE OF ULTRON teaser/announcement.  Pretty big panel just a month before D23 Expo.  Too bad they drop out this year though it's understandable

* D23 = Disney wants to monopolize maximum hype/exposure (and dollars) by leaving their properties out of SDCC and holding them back for their own convention
* Marvel proved last October they can hold their own big hour-long marketing event to hype their brand and keep 100% of the spotlight.  They got just as much ink from that as they did at SDCC (if not more, because they actually had meaningful announcements while the SDCC panel was just footage and stars)
* Marvel doesn't really need to market to the SDCC crowd, or its (overblown) media: we're going to see their films, maybe multiple times.  We're going to buy their Blu-rays and we're likely going to like their stuff.  A lot of the other films at SDCC still need the proper exploitation of media saturation and crowd hype: Marvel kinda doesn't.

I'm bummed because I really wanted to see CIVIL WAR footage, try to get insight on how Spidey will fit into the MCU, maybe casting announcements or hints of cool stuff Marvel hasn't announced yet.  Of course, maybe the end of AGE OF ULTRON will 'reveal' casting for Ms Marvel, and/or show Dr. Strange or something.
But I'm fine with no Marvel studios presence.  There will be a TON of other great panels and surprises from other studios, and whatever Marvel does at D23 Expo will be online almost immediately anyway.

Ditto.  I've seen every single Marvel Film Studio panel with the exception of the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY/WINTER SOLDIER/THOR 2 year.  I have free t-shirts from every Marvel film panel they gave 'em out (Iron Man; Iron Man 2; Cap America/Thor; Avengers even though this wasn't a panel I snagged it at the booth that summer; Iron Man 3 which again came from the booth and not the panel).  I high-fived RDJ when he 'danced' down the isles before the IRON MAN THREE panel.  I've seen Edgar Wright talk about ANT-MAN what seems like 3 or 4 times.  It's been a fun ride and as long as they keep making awesome and fun films I will be 100% happy: that's all I could ever hope for and so far they've mostly delivered.

This is not really a big deal, and I suspect other heavy-hitters will dazzle Hall H Saturday (we're all looking at you, WB/DC + Legendary + Sony).  There will be panels that we never saw coming that thrill us (like KICK-ASS did several years ago).  I'm still looking forward to it and can't wait to see some SUPERMAN v BATMAN coolness!!

I'm thinking about it: it's expensive, though (especially if you have kids - at SDCC kids 12-under are free, while at D23 Expo we'd have to pay for kids).

I think if you're going just for a Marvel panel, it's under $100 and you probably wouldn't need to go the other days unless you're a Disney geek/collector.  I put all my eggs into the SDCC basket, so to speak, and I probably couldn't afford to go to the D23 Expo right now.  To be honest/blunt, anything cool that is announced or happens at the event will be online ASAP so while I"m a little bummed I'm not upset enough to drop $100+ just to see a couple Marvel & Disney movie panels

Exactly: I'm not gonna fall for it!  Disney gets enough of my money over the years as a long-time Annual Pass holder so I'm OK reading the footage details on line after the fact (I only care about those types of panels for sneak peak at footage, and occasionally if someone in the panel drops interesting new information).  If the ticket prices were cheaper I'd consider, but I'm OK not going.

Besides: maybe Marvel will do something special/awesome for their Unlimited Plus subscribers (like they did last year, showing the footage from Hall H somewhere offsite to Plus members-only on Sunday).

Gotcha; thanks for the correction.  I must've misheard or remembered wrong or something.  That's kind of a bummer: anything else interesting that went on at that panel?  Also what stuff did they give out?

My son got a Marvel Unlimited Plus subscription for Christmas this year; I didn't pay much attention last summer since we weren't members, so any info (or a link to specifics if someone already wrote-up a description somewhere).

We saw AoU footage at NYCC. Maybe that's what crossed your mind. We saw Ant-Man, Peggy Carter and some animated clips then too.

We normally get a comic with a variant cover, they have comic writers/artists there for a Q&A, plus they share art from upcoming books. It's a nice mix of all Marvel topics. We've seen AoS stuff before as well.

Interesting article here with quotes from Glazner:

David Glanzer, Comic-Con's director of marketing and public relations, said this was news to him.

"This is the first we've heard of it," he said. "We don't start scheduling until May, so, to be honest, I wouldn't be able to give any confirmation until closer to the summer."

Glanzer said there could be many reasons for the studio's absence, like shooting schedules and whether Marvel has enough footage to showcase at the event.

"Not every studio comes every year," he said.

Also, we now know that SDCC doesn't start scheduling any actual programming until May (although like many rules, I wouldn't be surprised if there are a few exceptions).

Practically, I'm sure you're right: staffers likely follow the social media scuttlebutt, and there might be some unofficial talks prior to any official scheduling.
Officially, I have no doubt Mr. Glanzer is right on the money: with all of the logistics involved with running SDCC AND WonderCon, I'm sure most, if not all, of the scheduling plans right now were focused on Anaheim leading up to this weekend.  It's always possible that James Gunn isn't 100% in-the-know, or perhaps what he meant was he was not going with Marvel Films since GotG 2 is still a bit in the future and not set to even begin shooting for another year.  Glanzer would certainly not talk 'out of school' and either upset Marvel, or speak about plans that are nowhere near being finalized at this time.

I personally have no idea, and frankly I don't buy into a ton of the scheduling noise until we get to May when plans start becoming a little more firm.

My guess is Marvel told/let him leak it.   Good news and they're going to do a press release/make a big deal.   "Bad" news and they would probably be ok with a leak.

I put "bad" in quotes because I am sure in their eyes, they do not see it as bad as they will be saving stuff for their show.  i.e. bad for SDCC, but good for D23.

Deadline now saying Marvel Studios won't have a Hall H panel:

http://deadline.com/2015/06/san-diego-comic-con-marvel-no-hall-h-1201439745/
From the article:
Quote
With so many hit franchises in working order, Marvel’s Kevin Feige just doesn’t have anything new to show this year. That happened in 2011, the last time Marvel skipped the Con.

That's a pretty disingenuous way of putting it.  At the very least, Marvel skipped 2011 Comic-Con because they had an AVENGERS panel at D23 where they showed a Comic-Con esque sizzle reel for THE AVENGERS.  I suspect they'll do the same at D23 this year for CIVIL WAR, while possibly introducing Spider-Man actor to the crowd (though it seems chances are decent that could leak before late-August when D23 takes place).

I don't care too much: it's a bummer, for sure, but it's not like Marvel Studios is the only game in town at Comic-Con (sorry, Kevin Feige: I love ya, I love your studio & your movies, but there are a TON of other interesting studios & panels at Comic-Con 2015).

Comic-Con doesn't need Marvel Studios to present a panel: there will be a TON of awesome stuff, not the least of which will be WB likely going all-in with their Justice League slate of films & actors (Will Smith in the house for SUICIDE SQUAD, anyone?!). 
D23 NEEDS Marvel Studios: bad.  The first D23 had good but tepid attendance; the 2nd D23, which featured the big AVENGERS presentation (and THE MUPPETS, and JOHN CARTER, among others) was covered by many more outlets online and I think Saturday sold out that year.  If Disney is really being smart and shrewd, they'll hold back all FORCE AWAKENS & other Star Wars movie stuff for D23 also.  D23 wants to be Disney Comic-Con, and the only way to get that big is to have the huge panels that can ONLY be seen at D23.  This is smart for them, and Disney doesn't have much else they can make exclusive outside of Marvel and Star Wars.

That would be awesome, but I dare not get my hopes up too much.  Even if they just do a replay of the Celebration panel (meaning, same stars, similar footage, etc) it would be awesome.  But I suspect if Disney is holding out Marvel for D23, they're likely going to hold out Lucasfilm/Star Wars as well.

Or not; guess we'll know for sure soon enough now

The counter to that would be that IF Disney brought Star Wars to SDCC they would steal any momentum WB might get from BvS or Suicide Squad announcements. Disney would absolutely get all the press that day if they did.

That's likely true, though doing it a D23 would mean they would get absolutely ALL of the press and not compete with other studios.

But if we're being honest, Star Wars doesn't need extra press (heck, they practically broke the internet at Celebration with the new trailer); Marvel studios don't need extra press (the last time they skipped SDCCI was for THE AVENGERS panel at D23, and that film went on to be the 3rd highest grossing movie of all time at that point).  Getting press isn't really the huge issue (though it is to the extent that there is so much "noise" in the press from Comic-Con it's easy to be hot one hour and replaced by the next big announcement the next hour).  The issue is Disney building their D23 brand to be the Disney Comic-Con; the only way to really do that is to have huge panels and D23 could accomplish that easily with Star Wars and Marvel panels.

I don't know what they'll do; I really hope I'm wrong (as I was a few years ago when Marvel showed up to announce AGE OF ULTRON, show clips from THOR & CAP sequels, as well as a sizzle reel for GUARDIANS: ALL during a D23 year), but I just have this bummer of a feeling that Disney will hold on to Star Wars, as they are for Marvel, in order to boost ticket sales and hype for their own D23.

Seems possible.  They had a screening for the original CAPTAIN AMERICA, the had a fun scavenger hunt for a screening of one of the 'One Shot' short films (the Item 47 short that I think is on the IRON MAN 3 Blu-ray).  It would be rad if they did something like that for the Marvel Unlimited Plus members.  I kind of think out of all the movies in production right now that one could benefit from some hype.  I kind of think that, really, most of their Phase 3 films will benefit from Comic-Con hype (at least all of their 'original' films that aren't sequels to established blockbusters), so maybe this year will be the last they skip SDCCI for awhile!

This is the same Marvel/DC debate that has been going on for decades.  People need a scoreboard to look at.

The article raises an excellent point that if this were the real/primary reason, then Star Wars likely wouldn't be at SDCC either.

Maybe after the Star Wars panel Chris Evans will come out with a teaser clip of Civil War such as WB did with Batman Superman last year but that'd be about all they'd do.

But I don't see that happening

I believe they had panel for Iron Man 3 at SDCC 2013, and they also went to D23 that same year.

I think they a bit bummed out about the tepid reaction they got last year for and they don't feel they live up with the fan/press expectations.

Iron man 3 panel was at 2012 con. Winter Soldier/Thor dark world/guardians was at 2013 con.

But Marvel pretty much single-handedly INVENTED the hall H wow factor:
* they brought out producers & directors to talk about upcoming films without finalized scripts, casting, etc (including showing promo art for The Mandarin, which was the original bad guy for IRON MAN).  The sold thin air and a couple of drawings
* for IRON MAN they not only held their own panel, but they had a 'sneak peak' in the Paramount panel when John Favreau said they were going to show a sizzle reel, played the cartoon intro for a laugh, then showed the same sizzle reel they showed the next day at the Marvel Panel
* they had been shooting CAPTAIN AMERICA for only a few days, but delivered an entire edited seen (with pre-vis effects)!  Chris Evans said he hadn't even worn the finished Cap costume yet, that's how early in the process they were (he hadn't shot anything prior to Comic-Con panel)
* they made an AGE OF ULTRON trailer and made the AVENGERS 2 announcement almost a year before they even started shooting!
* they fabricated an ANT-MAN teaser for a week before the film even started shooing, bringing in the stars to record a few lines of dialogue and then showing a TON of awesome special effects shots edited together to make a fairly coherent sequence

There are plenty of examples of Marvel having no problems bring the wow factor with little prep, and I still call shenanigans with this excuse.  By Saturday of Comic-Con, nearly a month from now, CIVIL WAR will have been shooting for a little over 2 full months.  Given Marvel's track record of hype at Comic-Con, they could easily bring the "wow" to Hall H if they wanted; alas, as they did in 2011 the summer before AVENGERS came out, Marvel/Disney has decided instead to likely holdout for D23.
If there is no Marvel panel at D23 I will have no problems saying I'm wrong (as I gleefully did regarding STAR WARS: FORCE AWAKENS panel announcement), but I suspect I'm right.

Yep. It was always about Marvel the past few years for Saturday. I heard people saying DC did better last year but all they did was show some footage and brought the stars on stage. They did not speak or anything. While RDJ dances down the aisle and Loki takes the stage. They're saving it for D23 and their own red carpet event like they had at Pantages.

I have the same dilemma, but will likely go for Agent Carter/Agents of SHIELD for two reasons. 
1.  The crowd for B20 won't be as bad as Hall H.  I'll still camp overnight, but don't think I need to start mid-afternoon the day before like I would for Hall H.
2.  I've been to GoT panel the last 4 years.  I think I can miss it this once.

The Fri Hall H line certainly is daunting but I just got into Game of Thrones and am quite eager to see the cast.  And I did attend the very first AoS panel. Hopefully it'll be easier making a choice once the full schedule is released.

If you're willing to brave the Star Wars line. Only you can decide if your time is worth it. IMO the craziness of Star Wars being the same day won't be worth it for just GOT. There won't be much to show for GOT anyways.

The GoT panel is always entertaining, but they never really have anything to show regarding the following season.  I also doubt now that they're expanding into unpublished territory that they'll give much away plotwise.  But they do bring a lot of the cast and tell some funny and interesting stories.

OTOH, you can see that at the playback. There's no line for the playback.

Post by: DaveG on June 19, 2015, 09:33:22 AM
My general philosophy around panels is this.  The only reasons to attend a panel in person are 1. The feel of "being there", like a sporting event and 2. Pictures.  You can get #1 from anywhere in the room.  You can only get #2 if you have a good seat (i.e. camp out overnight) and/or a really good camera. 

If you're there for juicy information or stories, check twitter, it'll be posted seconds after announced.  Go to the playback or check you tube if you need to see it.  If you're there for exclusive footage, 90% of it will be released by the studio or network within days after the panel.  You might also find some lilegal footage on you tube.

I go for both #1 and #2, which is why I camp out.  I've gotten some good pictures over the years and have friends who say they see SDCC vicariously through my pictures.  Some will be disappointed if I don't have GoT or TWD pictures this year, but others will be very happy if I make up for it with Agents of SHIELD/Agent Carter pictures.

Other people may have other reasons for attending, but these are mine.

The GoT panel is always entertaining, but they never really have anything to show regarding the following season.  I also doubt now that they're expanding into unpublished territory that they'll give much away plotwise.  But they do bring a lot of the cast and tell some funny and interesting stories.

I really want to see the GOT panel because I'm so invested in the cast (I'm one of those people who goes out of their way to see their other films/projects because I enjoy them all). I just really want to see them in person! Though I suppose if Hall H ends up being too insane to bear, I may decide to try for autographs instead. We shall see...

The answer:

"Why isn't Marvel going to Comic-Con this year?

KEVIN FEIGE It was just timing. We had done that [media] event in October, when we announced so much. Everyone knows what we're doing over the next few years. I really have a belief: If you can't go to Comic-Con and overdeliver, then don't go"

And if there is no Marvel Studios panel at D23 Expo I'll buy this.  CIVIL WAR has been shooting for almost two months now, Spider-man was officially cast/announced today (and is reporting to set ASAP), and with the ginormous cast in the film there's no way that panel would NOT over deliver!  Having seen Marvel Studios over-deliver every panel they've presented except 2013, including screening an edited scene from CAPTAIN AMERICA when the film had been shooting less than a week, I still think the more likely answer is Disney is holding back for D23: especially with Star Wars & popular TV shows presenting at Comic-Con, Marvel Studios would be the big "exclusive" draw. 
I have no problem giving Kevin F the benefit of the doubt, even if he is infamously well-known for flat-out lying to the press/public when it suits Marvel Studios' needs.  But if there is a Marvel Studios panel at D23 I'll be calling BS

Of course, NONE of this really matters: there are already a plethora of great panels announced, with more to be known when the schedule goes live in a few days.  While this is a kind of an interesting story (Marvel Studios skipping Comic-Con for only the second time), all it really does is take attention away from all of the great stuff that WILL be in San Diego in two weeks.  Kevin has to be smiling like crazy at the amount of press NOT going to Comic-Con has generated for Marvel Studios: like, Marvel Studios is so huge that there lack-of-presence at Comic-Con is a big detriment.  I don't blame Marvel for sitting out Comic-Con, even if it's to benefit Disney's D23 Expo.  I'll have a great time at Comic-Con regardless of a huge Marvel panel.
I suspect Marvel will feel the need to return to Comic-Con to promote the heck out of DR. STRANGE, BLACK PANTHER, and some of their other unestablished projects coming out soon.  If Latino Review is correct that Affleck is directing a BATMAN film to open the same month as Marvel's CAPTAIN MARVEL, Marvel Studios will have a serious concern that their film will be far overshadowed by the immense popularity of Batman (especially if the other WB films do well leading up to The Batman in 2018).

Okay so I'm going to a Nerd HQ panel on Friday, the day of the Marvel TV panel, that ends at 10:45am (which means I'll probably be in the B20 area at around 11:10am depending on foot traffic). Do you guys think I can make it inside B20 by the time the Marvel panel comes along? I don't care where I'm seated as long as I'm in the room.

No one can say for sure. But IMO you're like on the edge of making it not making it.
