SDCC doesn't start for a few more weeks, but Marvel has already released their schedule for this year's event. Things start off with a bang, as Marvel Games will be in Hall H discussing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Marvel's Avengers, and Marvel's Iron Man VR. The panel starts at 1:30PM and is hosted by Greg Miller. Joining him will be Bill Rosemann, the Creative Director at Marvel Games, as well as unannounced special guests from the studio.
With the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 on July 19th, it wouldn't be too far fetched to expect a reveal of the entire playable character list. It would also to be nice to see some more gameplay footage of different heroes in action, along with a more in depth look at the level progression system. If nothing else, we should at least get a more nuanced explanation of the plot from Bill Rosemann.
As for Marvel's Avengers, expect to see the same character models, despite significant fan backlash during their debut at E3. Hopefully, fans will also be treated to some gameplay footage during this panel. Although critics' opinions on the title have been mixed so far, Square Enix has plenty of time to work on the game before its May 2020 release.
Marvel's Iron Man VR will also get some love, possibly in the form of a new gameplay trailer. No release date has been set for this PS4 title, but it would be nice to see a playable demo on the floor to help build hype for the game. It seems to be the forgotten title, often overshadowed by Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Marvel's Avengers.
Outside of these gaming announcements, Marvel has a full schedule during SDCC. These include TV and movie announcements, anniversary celebrations, as well as an hour long panel all about Spider-Man. Marvel ends the convention with an in-depth look at how they make comics, from the early stages of writing and penciling all the way through to publication.
San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 18th through the 21st.
