Marvel TV is bringing two of its newest shows to San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel is making its return yet again to Hall H this year, and its TV line-up is certainly impressive. Panels from shows such as Legion, The Gifted, and Marvel's Animated Spider-Man will be taking place, as well as Inhumans and The Defenders. Both of the latter series are set to premiere within the next few months, and anticipation for both shows is quite high.
The first Inhumans trailer was just released online this week - and though it was met with mixed reactions, the buzz surrounding the show is still ongoing. Inhumans premieres on ABC this Fall, but fans will also be able to catch its first episode in IMAX theaters starting September 1st, for two weeks. The Inhumans panel at Comic-Con will take place on Thursday, July 20th, from 6:15 - 7:15 PM.
While no exact cast members are listed yet, Marvel has revealed that the Inhumans SDCC panel will be a chance to meet Marvel's Royal Family, so it's a safe bet to assume that most, if not all, of the main stars will be in attendance - including Anson Mount, Iwan Rheon, and Serinda Swan. The panel will also give attendees the chance to see exclusive footage from the show in advance of its premiere, too. The show itself follows Black Bolt, the silent King of Attilan, who makes his arrival on Planet Earth in order to ease his kingdom's suffering.
The Defenders, meanwhile, will present its panel on Friday, July 21st, from 5:15 - 6:15 PM, just 4 weeks before it arrives on Netflix. Bringing together the quartet of Netflix heroes; Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Iron Fist, The Defenders is a limited series that has already promised a villainous Sigourney Weaver, and really, what more could you ask for?
Defenders stars Mike Colter, Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox, and Finn Jones will all be in attendance at Comic-Con, with 'guest stars galore.' It could well be that Weaver herself makes an appearance, or even some of the beloved Netflix/ Marvel sidekicks we all enjoy, such as Rosario Dawson, who plays Claire Temple, or Rachael Taylor who plays Trish Walker. In fact, given that Defenders pulls from across all four of the individual Netflix/Marvel shows, the cast list for the show is huge, so the possibilities for who might appear at Comic-Con are vast.
There's no doubt that The Defenders panel in particular will be exceedingly popular, especially since not much is known about the plot of the show itself - so fans will be eager to see if we can score a first look at some exclusive footage.
The Defenders hits Netflix on August 18th. Inhumans arrives in IMAX theaters on September 1st, before premiering on ABC on September 29th.
