San Diego Comic-Con 2022 has kickstarted. As usual, Marvel Studios’ panels and its signature Hall H presentation are what fans would look out for this year. The last big presentation from Marvel came at the 2019 SDCC when Kevin Feige unveiled the extensive slate of MCU Phase Four productions along with introducing the cast to the world. Though speculations suggest that Marvel is saving the best MCU revelations for the D23 Expo 2022 that will be held in September, there might also be some updates at the SDCC. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have gone with the decision to address the audience at Hall H.
Now, spicing up the hype, the official Twitter handle of Disney+ has replied to a Marvel Entertainment post in the most teasing manner. On Twitter, Marvel Entertainment shared the news about the opening of its SDCC booth, to which, Disney+ replied,
We’re ready to Marvel at all the #SDCC surprises! 🤩 #DisneyPlusSDCC
Disney+ used ‘Marvel’ as a sign in response, capitalizing the word with a hashtag referring to Disney Plus’s role at SDCC. It may be a tease to Marvel Studios’ Disney+ projects’ updates they plan to offer at SDCC this year. Marvel’s previous Hall H presentations have brought crazy announcements that take the media by storm. If this tease is to be believed, we might be getting a few updates about the planned Disney+ originals in the making.
What Could We Expect from Disney+ at Marvel’s Presentation
One must suddenly get their hopes high as the major reveals would be saved for the D23 Expo. However, certain projects in the slate of MCU’s Disney+ originals can get some showcase at the panel.
One of them could be I Am Groot, a series of shorts featuring the character of Baby Groot taking center stage. Another project that Marvel might leave a hint about could be Echo, starring Maya Lopez. Marvel had earlier shared the first look of the show, which is undergoing a fast-tracked production. However, two crucial Disney+ shows that fans would be happy to learn more about would be Marvel’s next ventures into animation.
Marvel Studios last year announced two animated projects under work at Disney+ – Marvel’s Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. Zombies will be an expansion of the What If…? episode of the same name. On the other hand, Freshman Year would act as a prequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and will feature Peter Parker’s journey of becoming the web-crawling-friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. The character was already six months into the superhero community when he first debuted in Civil War.
Several other Disney+ originals set in the MCU have been announced. Still, Marvel would probably wait for the D23 Expo to disclose details about Ironheart, Armor Wars, etc. There is also a slight possibility of getting some updates about the Untitled Halloween Special that is to be directed by Michael Giacchino.
As Marvel’s project titles continue to grow in numbers, even a Hall H presentation could be enough for the studio to reveal everything. But hopefully, this Twitter tease would mean something meaningful.
