San Diego Comic-Con 2024 Marvel panel: Will there be one?

The San Diego Comic-Con Marvel panel is a staple of the convention, and has previously been the source of some huge announcements. Deadline has confirmed the studio will be back this year, but we don't have any details yet on what they will be unveiling.

Next up on the filming schedule for Marvel is Fantastic Four, which begins this summer, so it feels like this will likely be a focus. It's very possible too that we may get some more big announcements of the future of the MCU, as Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars are now on the horizon. Following Jonathan Majors' exit as Kang, a lot is unknown about the direction Marvel will be heading in next.

The panel will be in the primetime spot on Saturday night, from 6pm-7pm PT.

As well as the main panel, Deadpool and Wolverine also has a separate panel on Thursday evening.

Just like with the panels, there's still a great deal of uncertainty about the San Diego Comic-Con guests due to appear this year. Traditionally, these details can be kept quiet right until the moment that the cast walk out on stage (especially during Marvel's panels). This being said, some huge names have been confirmed to appear at SDCC 2024. Take a look at some of those announced so far:

  • Chris Hemsworth, Transformers: One
  • Jack Quaid, My Adventures with Superman, The Boys
  • Jonathan Frakes, Star Trek
  • Brian Tyree Henry, Transformers: One
  • Ashley Johnson, Critical Role
  • J. Michael Straczynski, Babylon 5 creator
  • Scott Shaw, Sonic the Hedgehog writer
  • William Stout, Return of the Living Dead artist
  • Jim Lee, DC president
  • Hugh Jackman, Deadpool & Wolverine
  • Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool & Wolverine

San Diego Comic-Con 2024 tickets: How can I watch SDCC 2024?

San Diego Comic-Con 2024 will not be streamed at home. The convention did have a few years during the pandemic when it was possible to watch it from wherever you were, but that won't be the case this year.

This means if you want to watch the panels, you'll need to physically attend the event. San Diego Comic-Con 2024 tickets are all sold out so if you don't have one, you won't be able to get one at this point. 

Have no fear, though as we'll be keeping you updated on everything that happens. GamesRadar+ will be on the ground, so make sure you keep an eye on our website and our socials so you don't miss a moment.
