It’s hard to say what Marvel plans on debuting at San Diego Comic-Con, considering all the big reveals at Disney’s D23 last weekend. There, fans got a first look at Avengers: Infinity War and and stood in awe of Black Panther’ s costume designs. So what’s left for SDCC? There’s still a lot of big stuff Marvel can reveal at the biggest entertainment event of the year. From a sneak peek at Thor to an official Avengers 4 title, the options are limitless for Marvel Studios 90-minute panel, which doesn’t even include the Marvel TV shows.  Here’s what we expect to see.

Black Panther & Thor: Ragnarok

There’s posters for both these films all around the convention center, so it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing a new trailer or sneak peek of both of these titles. Thor is the next Marvel film to hit theaters on Nov. 3, 2017 and Black Panther follows on Feb. 16, 2018. Some sort of new information is a guarantee.

Avengers: Infinity War

Kevin Feige teased that the public can expect to see a trailer for Avengers: Infinity War (release date May 4, 2018) very soon, especially since it just finished production. His statements came after special footage revealed at D23, so does this mean the trailer will drop at SDCC? We hope so.

Captain Marvel

This one’s a long shot, considering the film isn’t expected to release until March 2019… but we know Captain Marvel is appearing in Avengers: Infinity War and we still haven’t seen her or heard anything about her role! Bringing out Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson to give us a little insight into what to expect in Captain Marvel’s solo debut would be a fanboy's dream come true. Especially considering the success of Wonder Woman … Marvel fans need some affirmation about how badass Brie Larson is going to be. Fingers crossed.

The Defenders

Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Daredevil will all show their faces at The Defenders panel in Hall H Friday night. With the series set to hit Netflix in just about a month, we can definitely expect some brand new footage of New York’s four heroes kicking some ass. And maybe we’ll find out more about who Sigourney Weaver is really playing

The Punisher

Jon Bernthal surprised fans by appearing at the New York Comic Con Defenders Panel last year, where his solo series was announced, so it’s a safe bet we'll be seeing this guy again at SDCC. The Punisher made such a good impression in Daredevil that footage of this savage character may even be more anticipated than a The Defenders trailer.

This show may not have all the hype right now, but it’s definitely peaked our curiosity. The first trailer wasn’t so well received and Twitter has been all jokes about the “grounded” costume design, so it will definitely be interesting to see how Marvel handles this the mixed reception. Will they debut some new footage that will change fans minds and have them lining up for IMAX tickets come fall? Marvel’s Inhumans debuts in theaters early September, then runs on ABC for an eight episode season.

Spider-Man Series

Marvel and Sony really hit a home run with Spider-Man: Homecoming and they are trying to keep the Spidey hype going with an all-new Spider-Man animated series on Disney XD. Sounds pretty low on the hype list compared to the prospect of an Avengers: Infinity War, but still something to look out for no doubt. The series premieres Aug. 19.

Ant-Man & The Wasp (release date July 6, 2018), as well as Guardians of the Galaxy 3 (expected in 2020), could get nice mentions at the panel, but who knows in what capacity, since it’s far too early for a trailer. Marvel's Runaways, a TV series set to premiere on Hulu, could also use a release date announcement. A trailer supposedly leaked on reddit, but is nowhere to be found as of this morning. A few members of our staff consider The Runaways one of the best comic books of all time, so some news about the Hulu's series' development is undoubtedly something to keep your eyes peeled for.

A Surprise

Kevin Feige is also known to make special announcements at SDCC about upcoming movies that aren't already on the docket. The studio head has teased Marvel has movies planned all the way until 2022. It could be time to share some of that plan with the public. You never know what Feige has up his sleeve. As far as surprises go, a solid one would be revealing the official title of Avengers 4, which is due May 2019.
