Marvel fans are now gearing up for the long-awaited San Diego Comic-Con, wherein Marvel Studios will announce several highly-anticipated projects that will pave the future of the franchise including the Fantastic Four reboot and the X-Men's arrival into the MCU. However, a recent report surfaced that Marvel will hold some of the major announcements from SDCC, and will reveal them instead at Disney's D23 Expo.
According to a recent report from Deadline, Marvel Studios are reserving all the major announcements for Disney's fan convention D23 this year, scheduled to take place from September 9 to 11. Luckily, the studio will still release teasers and unseen footage of two upcoming projects: Disney+'s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but there may not be more surprises for other upcoming projects like the Fantastic Four reboot, Mahershala Ali in The Blade, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels, and The Mutants.
If this report is proven authentic, it makes sense how Marvel Studios decided Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law to take the spotlight as they are the next big projects landing in theaters and Disney+. The Black Panther sequel is teased to be jump-packed with exciting MCU debuts of Ironheart (Riri Williams), Namor The Sub-Mariner, and a rumored cameo of Fantastic Four's arch-nemesis Doctor Doom. On the other hand, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law will serve as the debut of Tatiana Maslany as the female counterpart of Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.
Sadly, what's predominantly disheartening about this report is that those long-awaited MCU project announcements will remain unraveled through the weekend, including Marvel Studios' slate for Phase 5.
Nonetheless, Marvel Studios undoubtedly prepared something exhilarating for SDCC. If it's not enough for the fans, the studio will announce more at D23 Expo this September.
