SDCC 2016: No ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Announcement During Marvel Panel?
Marvel fans are expecting some exciting announcements during SDCC this year. Spider-Man: Homecoming definitely tops the list, since we have already come across a lot of set images from the movie.Advertisement
While Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel are still likely to be part of Marvel’s panel, it looks like there will be no news on Spider-Man: Homecoming. The reason solely lies behind the rights.
During Umberto Gonzalez’s periscope stream, a fan asked him about announcements on Spider-Man: Homecoming at the SDCC. Gonzalez replied, “Sony’s not going to Comic-con, that’s been confirmed. Spider-man is their property, marketing is in their hands so forget about it.”
Even the report published on Los Angeles Times hasn’t mentioned Spider-Man: Homecoming as part of the Marvel panel at SDCC. However, the report suggested that fans might get to see a teaser of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
So far, it has been confirmed that Jacob Batalon is also part of the cast for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Rumors suggest Batalon was chosen for the role of Ned Leeds for the movie.
While fans can still keep their hopes high, a report suggested that trailers and teasers won’t be released immediately due to technical issues.
Fortunately, Marvel TV series fans can looked forward to Luke Cage in Ballroom 20 at 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. during the panel, where exclusive footage will be screened. Comic book lovers can attend the panel discussion on Civil War II at 10-11 a.m. in Room 6DE.
In other news, it has been hinted that Brie Larson could be part of the Marvel panel as she will be attending SDCC.
