Marvel has unveiled its San Diego Comic-Con TV lineup, including Iron Fist, Cloak & Dagger, Legion, The Gifted and more. Marvel won't have a Hall H presence at San Diego Comic-Con next month, meaning they'll be skipping any big movie reveals. With Ant-Man and the Wasp arriving before the event and nothing on the books until next year's Captain Marvel, it makes sense for them not to nab the big room. Luckily, they won't be skimping on TV and animation panels.
We heard earlier this month that Iron Fist will be at Comic-Con this year as season 2 of the series is right around the corner. Though conventional wisdom indicates the show won't air until 2019, Jeph Loeb recently revealed Iron Fist season 2 may arrive this year. If that's the case, it could be season 3 of Daredevil that waits until 2019. Either way, Comic-Con should provide more details on the upcoming Netflix-Marvel slate, which also includes new seasons of Jessica Jones and The Punisher. None of those series will be present at SDCC, however, at least according to Marvel's initial lineup reveal.
Marvel revealed their TV and animation lineup for San Diego Comic-Con, which you can view in full at the link. Highlights include panels for Cloak & Dagger, Legion, The Gifted, and Iron Fist. Interestingly, the upcoming season of Daredevil isn't included, possibly indicating Iron Fist will precede it.
Along with the live-action shows, Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest will have a panel, spotlighting the latest season of the Avengers Assemble animated series. Attendees will also get a look at Marvel Rising, a new project that spans comics and animation. Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors is said to debut later this year as a series of shorts and then a film, and stars like Chloe Bennett will be part of the panel. In the comics world, the story of the next generation of heroes has already begun unfolding with a team-up between Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel, and the other members of the new Secret Warriors.
Joining animation and the MCU shows, the FOX series The Gifted and FX's Legion will likely be offering looks at their new seasons. The Gifted season 2 premiere date was revealed earlier today, with the new batch of episodes beginning in September. Legion season 3, meanwhile, is likely still awhile off but its presence means fans will probably get a tease of its return. As for The Gifted, an extended sneak peak of the new season will be shown.
Along with the various Netflix shows that are missing, Agents of SHIELD and Runaways both were left out of the lineup. Agents of SHIELD won't return to ABC until next summer, so its absence makes sense, and Runaways season 2 is still filming. Hopefully, the coming weeks will shed more light on Marvel's TV plans for the coming year.
San Diego Comic-Con runs Thursday July 19 through Sunday July 22.
