San Diego Comic-Con may feel almost half a year away, because it is, but the king of cons will be upon us before you know it. Who’s bringing the goods to San Diego this year? You know Marvel will have a presence, Phase 2 kicks off with Iron Man 3 and they’ve got a lot of movies coming over the next few years. What will they be sharing with fans this year? How about a little Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Aaaawwww, yeah.
Confirmed through Elmayimbe of Latino Review, the flick will hold a panel in the “coveted” Hall H on Saturday July 20th. Though with filming on The Winter Soldier not starting until April 1st just how much they’ll be able to share seems iffy. Of course, this doesn’t mean they couldn’t share stuff from their other upcoming films, Thor: The Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy. Maybe this panel will either be preceded or followed by another Marvel Cinematic Universe panel, kind of like they did with the Iron Man 3 panel this past SDCC.
I don’t know about you guys, but those 6,500 seats of Hall H are going to disappear fast, you might as well start lining up now. I hear the weather’s great in San Deigo, I bet you’ll be real comfy in a tent outside the convention center for the next four months.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will star Chris Evans as Captain America, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Toby Jones as Arnim Zola, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Emily VanCamp in to-be-announced role, Frank Grillo as Crossbones, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. It’s expected release date is April 4th, 2014.
