SDCC 23: Marvel’s panel lineup revealed

Back in action once again for Comic Con, is Marvel Comics. The publisher will have a full slate of panels on tap for the show, covering a wide swath of fandom.

Presumably including the expansive booth

If you’re a member of the Comic Con faithful, then you no doubt have many a memory of Marvel’s big empty booths. They’re usually massive in footprint, but filled with little to nothing, except for a shop to one side and a stage in the center. It’s that central platform that’s actually the reason for the vast nothingness though, since Marvel does like to put on a giveaway/livestream.

Those will still be in full effect for Comic Con 2023 in a few weeks, with plenty of in-booth action. Livestreams will be hosted by Ryan Penagos, Langston Belton, Ray Lowe, and Justin Warner, and the publisher’s social and digital teams will be chronicling the Con all over the place.

But on top of all of that, fans can also look for a full spread of panels to be held in separate rooms, off the show’s main floor. Those will cover everything from the X-Men’s latest incarnations to the Marvel Multiverse RPG, and will be happening all Con long.

If you don’t see Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or Marvel SNAP on the catalog below by the way, don’t worry. The company says that both games will be in attendance at SDCC, with “additional information” coming soon along with signing and event info.

But in the meantime…
