We're roughly a month away from this year's New York Comic-Con, so I figured I might as well start this thread now. No details have surfaced yet, in regards to what Marvel might be highlighting or announcing this time.

I presume a description for the Marvel Animation panel(s) will be released within the next couple of weeks, and this post will be updated with any necessary info, but until then, feel free to use this thread to discuss, add your hopes or predictions about what might be announced.

It's interesting that this would take place after Secret Warriors aired. I'm guessing that Panther's Quest will be the main focus along with Spider-Man and Guardians will be spoken of as well. I'm not expecting to hear about anything in development so I'll be incredibly surprised if they talk about those.

I know we're only allowed to talk about the animated series on this discussion. But I wonder what they'll reveal from the live-action side of Marvel Television. I bet they'll confirm Luke Cage has been renewed for Season 3 and reveal some info on Daredevil S3 and Jessica Jones S3. Maybe they'll confirm Moon Knight, Ghost Rider and Blade Netflix series along the way.

I'll be interested to see if there will be mention of any kind of follow up to the Marvel Rising movie :).

I definitely think they'll talk a lot about Panther's Quest as they have so far, but I also imagine they're likely to bring up whatever show will take over from Panther's Quest once it inevitably goes on hiatus ;).

When was the last time Marvel Animation announced a new show? I guess Marvel Rising counts. Should we count Moon Girl :sweat:?

Moon Girl was definitely the last show announced but they have been so quiet since the first press release that it's impossible to gauge how things are going. The only other time I've seen anything about it in an article was an interview about Titmouse, where Chris Prynowski said that he wasn't allowed to say anything as Marvel has to approve anything said about the show.

Marvel gets annoyingly tight lipped about future animation projects. They don't make mention of anything themselves until it's deep into the process.

I think the panel will most likely feature only Avengers: Black Panther's Quest (which premieres about 3 weeks prior to Comic-Con), and the 2nd half of Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout (which technically should be the next cartoon to premiere, in Spring 2019). They'll probably also screen more Funko and Marvel Super Hero Adventures shorts, but that's about it. I kind of doubt Spider-Man will be highlighted (but again, it all depends on how long the hiatus is supposed to be, if anyone featured at the panel really knows the answer to that).

I don't really expect them to actually announce any new projects. It would be nice if they teased something new or more Marvel Rising, but it might be still too early for anything like that. Back in Summer, I was thinking the Marvel Rising movie might even premiere at Comic-Con before airing on TV, but I wasn't expecting it to come out so early, at the end of September.

EDIT:
From Marvel.com, here's the description for the Marvel Animation panels.
Marvel Animation: To celebrate the arrival of "Marvel Rising," Marvel will have a star-studded panel featuring the cast and creators! And the Marvel Animation Presents panel will be back with news about brand new projects for fans to get excited about -- plus a special screening of "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors"!
I'll wait for the full schedule and dates to be announced before adding it to the list in the opening post.

I feel like every Marvel Animation panel description teases info on "brand new projects" but it's mostly just stuff we already know about :p.

Are you kidding me?

NOT A SINGLE WORD ABOUT THE NEXT EPISODES OF MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN?!!!!

Do you know about any other Comic Con where it could be announced?

I did right not seeing the last two episodes, so I won't turn crazy for impatience for the "Superior Spider-Junk" to be solved for months.

We've been over this a few times already on the forum - since Spider-Man wasn't even included in the panel's description it was pretty obvious they would focus on the current show (Avengers) and the next show to return (Guardians). I don't know if they even had a Q&A part this year, nothing has been reported online yet as far as I can tell. So I doubt we'll hear anything new about Spider-Man this year. The earliest any news could come out I guess is around Wonder Con next year, but I think it's too early to start speculating about that right now.

Back on topic, I do find it kind of odd they mentioned Marvel Superhero Adventures would be featured at the panel, yet it was absent. Still, the LEGO Spidey animated special they announced was indeed a "surprise reveal".

EDIT:
Comics Beat has a summary of the Marvel Animation Presents panel. Looks like they did talk about Marvel Superhero Adventures and there were a couple of questions. (But nothing about Spider-Man is mentioned).

My personal synopsis: I'm not the most energetic or enthusiastic person you'll ever meet, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun. Generally, I'm pretty introverted and usually play video games, watch anime, and also study in the field of IT. I'm a huge music fanatic, as well. And I listen to pretty much everything except country. My favorites being trap, jazz, and metal.
