NYCC 2014: Marvel announces their con lineup

The House of Ideas will once again be present in a big way at the New York con this week, including plenty of panel presentations on comics, film, and what’s in store for the future.

Always a company that puts on a pretty great show at cons, Mighty Marvel will have a plethora of panels for fans to lineup for. The Logan Legacy, Marvel Animation, Guardians of the Galaxy, the future of the X-Men and Netflix’ Daredevil TV show are all on the blotter and will be hot events for fans. There are plenty more as well, and as usual pretty much all of them are as ‘must attend’ as you can get if you’re a big fan.

The Marvel booth on the show floor will also be playing host to an assortment of signings, giveaways, contests and live events, so make sure you visit booth #1354 often. Now bust out those planners and smartphones and get ready to copy and paste, here’s your list of panel presentations:
