I agree with that observation. I know when I first saw the tweet last night around midnight (darn that time change, couldn't sleep)there was already a lot of tweet response to it.
A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting”

Wondercon, SDCC, Comikazi, Blizzcon, SWCA, D23

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

Very true.

My guess is that there will be enough of a panel line up to keep people waiting.

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...

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.

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.

I'm really trying to hold out hope since this would be a HUGE disappointment for me, but it really doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility. If this does turn out to be true, I'm really not sure what I'll spend my Saturday doing.

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.

Maybe WB/DC will take over Saturday after GOT/WD in the morning if they follow their usual pattern?

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

Maybe Fox will move back to Saturday this year.

Oh right. I got my days mixed up. Yeah Fox is usually Fri but if Marvel skips that leaves prime real estate open.

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?
