As if the inevitable Marvel Studios panel wasn’t enough! It was just announced that Marvel Television would be bringing the much-awaited The Defenders to San Diego Comic-Con’s ultra exclusive and mega-prestigious center stage Hall H next month! Check out their teaser/announcement below.

Mark those calendars and set those alarms folks. On July 21st 5:15pm PST, the world will be given a first dope glimpse at what is my most anticipated MCU property ever (sorry Infinity War. I didn’t get my Daredevil tattoo for nothing!!). Chances are that the lucky attendees present in Hall H will get to see an episode or two from the series, the same way they did for Jessica Jones in NYCC. I’m starting to hate those people already!
Along with The Defenders panel, Marvel TV will also be bringing the Inhumans to the convention as well! The panel will be held at Ballroom 20 on July 20th at 6:15pm and will likely include some of the cast and show creator Scott Buck. Some of you may be wondering why there isn’t anything for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Punisher. The lack of any Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. presence in SDCC (a first in the longest time!) is likely because of the new premiere date for the show. Even though the September production date will still remain on track, there’s no pressure for them to release any material for the show considering it won’t premiere until January of next year. And while no panel is going to be held for the Punisher, there is going to be a signing with some of the stars on the 21st. So at least there’s going to be some Frank Castle movement on the con floor. If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll get to see a teaser during the Defenders Hall H panel when Jon Bernthal unexpectedly walks on stage.
