And folks, that just about wraps up Marvel Studios’ Hall H panel, and day 3 of San Diego Comic-Con 2022. What a night, what a night: Phase 4, Phase 5, and Phase 6. TV shows and movies aplenty. And holy hell, it might just look like Ryan Coogler pulls off the impossible with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, in spite of Read more

Welcome to the Multiverse Saga: Fantastic Four, Avengers: Kang Dynasty, and Avengers: Secret Wars. And that’s just... the beginning? Read more

And now, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3! Gamora/Peter drama! Baby Rocket! Cosmo! Adam Warlock, and... the High Evolutionary!? Read more

Here’s your first details of the Comic-Con Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania footage. Hail MODOK! Read more

I’m still not over the fact that Daredevil is back for a massive, 18 episode-long TV series. The first season of the Netflix show is still one of my favourite superhero stories. I really hope Cox’s return, alongside Vincent D’Onofrio as the Kingpin, will bring us a killer follow up in its vein. Read more

I’m honestly ready for some Skrull action. Everybody Skrustle. Read more

Get a new look at She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, hitting Disney+ August 17. Read more


Here’s your first glimpse at the future of the MCU: Phase 5 is here! Read more

Oh no, not the TVA. We haven’t even had news yet, how can we have broken the timeline!? Read more

Linda, I think the expectation for ground-level storytelling might be a little out the window for Marvel as it screams about multiversal madness, but who knows? We just had Ms. Marvel deliver a relatively personal, grounded tale, and we’ve got series like Echo and the rumored street-level heroes like Daredevil making Read more

We’ve just had word that someone has tripped the fire alarm inside Hall H, so what might just be the biggest panel of Comic-Con could be delayed a little as things get sorted. Welcome back to live, in-person events folks! It has at least been apparently cleared relatively quickly, so things won’t get too off track. Read more

Welcome, one and all, to io9's official liveblog for the Marvel Studios Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, 2022 edition! I am your host, Deputy Editor James Whitbrook, and tonight I’m joined by Germain Lussier live inside Hall H, and the rest of team io9 remotely from the... relative comfort of homes and other Read more

Iwájú sounds absolutely amazing, but it was hilarious for Disney to frame it as having seen a headline about how the series had the potential to kick its butts so...they just opened their wallets? Good for the creative team!   Read more

So much has just happened—confirmations of the Little Mermaid live action cast, including new musical material from Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda, reminders that Jungle Cruise exists and is coming next year—but we also just got word that JOHN MULANEY AND ANDY SAMBERG ARE VOICING CHIP AND DALE IN A NEW RESCUE Read more
