We're now only a few weeks away from being entirely up-to-date with the Marvel Cinematic Universe release schedule. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theatres on July 5, and no further MCU films have been officially announced. But this could change later in July, as it has been reported that the studio is set to make its return to San Diego Comic-Con.
According to Deadline, Marvel is planning to appear in Hall H at this year's SDCC, which takes place on the weekend of July 19-21. Hall H is traditionally the location of the convention's biggest panels and announcements. Marvel did not appear at all at SDCC 2018, with studio boss Kevin Feige having previously made it clear that no more movies would be announced until after Avengers: Endgame was in theaters. But with Endgame released back in April and Far From Home about to arrive, Marvel is expected to reveal the schedule for the next batch of films soon.
Marvel's potential return to Hall H is also notable because rivals DC won't be at SDCC at all this year. While parent company Warner is set to showcase upcoming horror releases such as It: Chapter 2 and Doctor Sleep at the opening night event ScareDiego, DC won't be making any announcements. Unlike Marvel, it already has a packed slate of upcoming movies due over the next two years, including Joker, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman 1984, and The Batman.
While Marvel is yet to officially announce its next titles, we do know what some of them are likely to be. Production has now started on the Black Widow prequel movie, starring Scarlett Johansson, while Ryan Coogler and James Gunn are set to direct Black Panther 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 respectively. Other Marvel movies rumored to be in the works include The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and Doctor Strange 2.
