New York Comic Con is just a few weeks away, and Marvel Television has announced via a press release some exciting things we can expect to see. For MCU fans, the main attractions are Friday’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel with head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb and cast members of the show, and Saturday’s Iron Fist panel, where the cast of the 2017 Netflix series will take the stage together for the first time. Like last year, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel will give attendees a chance to see a new episode before it airs on ABC the following Tuesday. The episode will be the fourth of season four, which won’t air on television until October 11.
While last year’s Jessica Jones panel showed fans the entire first episode of the series, Iron Fist is too far away to expect the same this year. Still, attendees should expect to see some footage from the show, either in the form of a clip from an early episode or a new trailer. The panel will also feature the cast answering questions from fans, and there will likely be a few surprises as well. It seems like a safe bet that we’ll get some new casting news, or maybe even our first look at the mystical city of K’un-L’un.
Aside from the Iron Fist and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. offerings, Marvel Television will also be presenting news and footage from non-MCU related properties including their animated series and the upcoming FX show Legion You can check out an excerpt of the original press release below:
