After skipping out on San Diego Comic Con last year, as it was a D23 year, Marvel Studios is set to make a return this year, and from the look of things, they’ll be bringing along plenty of goodies for fans. With Captain America: Civil War having hit theaters last month, it’s time for the studio to turn their attention to the next upcoming film: Doctor Strange. That film is set to hit movie theaters on November 4th, and while we’ve seen a teaser trailer, as well as a few official promotional photos from Marvel and Entertainment Weekly, much of the project has been cased in secrecy. So it was pretty exciting to see photos hit the internet this morning for the upcoming convention that featured Doctor Strange, and it was even more exciting to see director Scott Derrickson confirm that he’d be on hand to promote the film.
Given that most studios – Marvel included – use SDCC to showcase exclusive footage to fans, it’s highly likely Marvel will either unveil a new trailer, or possibly bits of footage, while also bringing out most of the cast to talk about the project. Although, none of that has been confirmed as of now. Still, getting a closer look at the upcoming film, which cast member Scott Adkins believes is set to change up the superhero genre is exciting.

What’s more interesting, though, is that James Gunn has seemingly confirmed that’ll he also be on hand. This isn’t entirely surprising, after all, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is set to wrap production within the next week and a half. This would lead me to believe Marvel will show fans something during their Hall H presentation. After all, they’d already had footage to showcase just days into filming the first film when the cast took the stage back in 2013.
Really? You’ll be so close. I might have to come see you. https://t.co/LbqvjJ46Vg

With it being rumored that Marvel is planning on announcing the actress they’ve cast for Captain Marvel – which looks to be Brie Larson, unless talks have stalled – and the director during SDCC, it appears that this year’s Hall H presentation is set to be a big one!
Doctor Strange will hit movie theaters this November, while Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 will hit theaters next May.
