It’s official the week of pop culture’s biggest convention, San Diego Comic-Con. In recent years, the place has been the hub for all things major for Marvel. This year, Marvel Studios will sadly be sitting out from their famed Hall H panel, in part of their effort to refrain from making any major announcements regarding the MCU post-Avengers 4. Representing the MCU instead will be Jeph Loeb‘s crew of Marvel Television, who will present Cloak & Dagger and the second season of Iron Fist. Below is the schedule of all MCU related panels happening this week.

And don’t forget to tune-in to watch all-new episodes, Thursdays, 8/7c, on Freeform. – 5:45 PM – Ballroom 20.
So it’s probably safe to expect a release date announcement and trailer for Iron Fist Season 2. There have been rumblings] of a possible Daredevil Season 3 and Punisher Season 2 appearance and the official press release of the Iron Fist does tease a few surprises, so fingers crossed that we get a bunch of new Marvel-Netflix announcements in the panel. So apart from this, there’s really not much going for the MCU this year at SDCC. Regardless, the panels celebrating the behind-the-scenes production of the MCU is something that should be worth checking out over there.
