Although Marvel has plans to skip this year's SDCC, the company still released an exclusive poster there that features some of their best Comic-Con moments. The poster commemorates the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ten years ago in the spring of 2008, Marvel released its first movie in the MCU: Iron-Man. Although the company didn't realize it at the time, that film launched a massive empire that has seen some of the largest box office intakes in the history of movies. Now, over 10 years later, the MCU is stronger than ever, especially after the release of this year's Avengers: Infinity War. The MCU introduced some of the most iconic heroes and villains from Marvel Comics to live-action movies and gave fans a reason to keep going back to movie theaters, year after year.
Marvel won't make its usual appearance at Hall H at Comic-Con this year, but it still plans on celebrating its 10th anniversary with an exclusive poster given out to some lucky attendees. That poster, as posted to Instagram by Comic Book Movie, features some of the best Marvel Comic-Con moments throughout the studio's history, including Tom Hiddleston taking to the stage dressed as his character, Loki: by the end of the panel, fans were chanting "Loki! Loki! Loki!" with wild abandon. It also includes Josh Brolin donning the Infinity Gauntlet and Robert Downey Jr. wearing Iron-Man's hand. Take a look:
Although Marvel has plans to skip Hall H programming at this year's event, fans of the studio still have a variety of Marvel-related panels to choose from. There's a cast Q&A for Marvel's latest television series Cloak & Dagger. It's also likely that fans will get a trailer for Iron Fist season 2 on Netflix. Marvel Games has a massive presence at the convention featuring some of their latest games, including the highly-anticipated Spider-Man PS4. There are also a multitude of panels for Marvel Comics, showcasing the company's writers and artists, as well as giving fans a chance to meet the company's new editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski.
Marvel still has a strong presence at SDCC in spite of it missing Hall H this year. The release of this poster celebrates its many Hall H programs at SDCC. It's likely the company will return in 2019, with both Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 releases under its belt. Expect next year's programming to revolve around Phase 4, which will usher in an entirely new era of storytelling in the MCU.
