After the incredible event that was E3 2019, in two weeks’ time we will be experiencing another, as San Diego Comic-Con will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. Of course, one of the convention’s permanent mainstays, Marvel Entertainment, has announced that it will be there to celebrate the occasion and bring along a host of all-star panels from its various arms - Marvel Comics, Marvel Television, Marvel Games, Marvel Animation, and Marvel New Media.
