Marvel Studios is back at Comic-Con. Live updates from their Hall H mega panel


Marvel Studios has a history of announcing big projects at San Diego Comic-Con during their panel events in Hall H — and bringing out unexpected stars.

With that level of anticipation, aided by a two-year hiatus, it’s no surprise that Hall H the line returned to its usual monstrous dimensions on saturday, stretching around the building, snaking through a tent and down the marina by the boats moored in back of the San Diego Convention Center. Those who braved it — along with an uptick in California’s COVID cases and new entrance requirements — may have wished they could Infinity-Gauntlet-snap away the crowds, but they may be rewarded with confirmation of casting rumors or the announcement of dream projects.

Stay here for our live updates from Marvel’s Hall H mega-panel, which is slated to begin at 5 p.m.

5:20 p.m. Phase 5 is on the horizon: “Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantummania” will begin the next phase. Other Phase 5 titles include “Secret Invasion,” “Echo,” “The Marvels,” Season 2 of “Loki.” The largest cheer is reserved from the anticipated “Daredevil Born Again” series, which brings back Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio from Netflix’s canceled “Daredevil” series.

5:14 p.m. Finally underway, the panel kicks off with an aspirational trailer narrated by comic book legend Stan Lee, emphasizing surviving “together.” Miss Minutes (“Loki”) introduces Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. An image of the Phase 4 movies and TV shows is on the screen, as the phase will end with “Black Panther” sequel “Wakanda Forever.”
