    And again, sadly, this will be more talked about for who and what AREN’T here vs. who is. Only one event slated for opening day in Hall H.:

    Paramount Pictures Presents-Terminator: Dark Fate panel with panelists Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Diego Boneta and director Tim Miller. 11AM-Noon.

    ETA: For the fifth straight year, the movie panels at Hall H will end on Saturday, 7/20, as TV takes over the big venue on SDCC’s final day.

    No movie panels on Friday, July 19. There is a Hall H panel from 11-11:50AM with the Russo Brothers who directed Avengers: Endgame, but that’s to talk about their new production company, mostly.

    Not so Super Saturday, July 20:

    There is a ‘Marvel Studios’ slot in Hall H from 5:15 to 6:45PM. No other info by the SDCC website. So from a dozen movies just 6 or 7 years ago to ONE. How far movie panels at the most influential and popular media convention in the country have truly fallen.

    That’s what happens when you rail hard for these studio tentpole films to constantly be breaking records (and when you care more for digestible storytelling and nostalgia-driven content than for something more eclectic). Eventually, one capitalistic behemoth becomes the only “successful” (whatever that means) studio and all others back out of events like this.

    If you want your studios to make a comeback (and who would actually want that ?!?), then start paying attention to all their titles, and not just those which have an adapted basis in another medium.

    Good points, FWA, except that Marvel itself has pretty much said adios from SDCC except for these one-offs on Saturday afternoons. They’ve migrated to Disney’s D23 convention every other October in Anaheim. If you want to see the Marvel lineup the past couple of years, D23 has pretty much been the only venue to see them. Would’ve been nice to see something about the final Star Wars trilogy movie this month. But you will see it at D23.
