Hi there! Welcome to Slice Mag’s Marvel live blog, where we’ll follow along with Marvel President Kevin Feige as he reveals what’s next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, live from Hall H at San Diego Comic Con in 2022.
It all starts at 1AM UK time, or 5PM in sunny Los Angeles, but the excitement is already mounting…
We can certainly expect some announcements from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, star Chris Pratt is on the way, so expect something, hopefully a first trailer…

Comic Con has been in full swing since Thursday and there have already been some real highlights. Yesterday we got another Lord Of The Rings trailer for Prime Video’s megabucks TV series The Rings Of Power, which teased a good take on the original big bad Sauron. You can see exactly where the $465 million it cost to make the series went:
And a first look at the fourth episode of John Wick, which looks very special indeed.
Earlier today, we got the chance to see the first trailer for Shazam! Fury Of The Gods, which you can read more about here.
And Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson kicks all kinds of asses in Black Adam.
What are we hoping for from the panel? As well as a look at Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?
And, on the TV side, might we get a sneak peek at Secret Invasion of Loki season 2? We should be getting something from She-Hulk since it’s less than a month away now…
But what will be the surprises? Can we get some details on Deadpool 3? A reboot for X-Men? And will we finally find out who the new Fantastic Four will be?
While we wait for all of this to kick in, Netflix has released a new trailer for The Sandman.
We weren’t convinced by the show’s first trailer. We are now.
Previously, Warner Bros. a look at their film slate. While it was fun to see Black Adam and Shazam! seeing the lack of anything on Aquaman, The Flash, The Batman or Wonder Woman felt quite disappointing.
Also, rumors that Henry Cavill would appear to finally map out what’s next for Superman turned out to be unfounded…

The news begins to trickle in. Andy Park, Director of Visual Development at Marvel Studios, has unveiled a first poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Kang looms in the background, played by Jonathan Majors of Lovecraft Country. Also known as Kang the Conqueror, a time traveler who is out to master history and has come into conflict with several Marvel heroes throughout his comic book history.
Could this mean a trailer? Who knows? Let’s hope.

Yesterday, Marvel’s animated arm offered a few things. There were announcements about the second and THIRD seasons of What If…?, as attendees got their first look at X-Men ’97, Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
You can read all about it here.
We also got to see the adorable first trailer for Guardians spin-off I Am Groot, out next month.
Need a refresher on Marvel’s Phase 4 for the panel?
We’ve got you covered.
Still half an hour to go.
If you want to pick me up a bit, relive the moment the Black Panther cast first saw footage from the film at Comic Con in 2017. It’s an absolute tonic.
Great moments in Hall H history: July 2017. The first #BlackPanther images are shown only to the Hall H audience and the place goes wild with a standing ovation from 6,000 fans. The cast had not yet seen the images and this was their reaction. #SDCC pic.twitter.com/bejt81ebHqJuly 23, 2022
10 minutes to go. Let’s relive the last seconds of last year’s event.
This is from the last event. #SDCC pic.twitter.com/XQ8lBoHC2nJuly 23, 2022
Almost there now. Last call for predictions. Will we see Mahershala Ali’s Blade? A first look at The Marvels? We wait and see…
It’s finally time. We’ve got a sizzle reel to get things going, featuring stories from the late great Stan Lee. We miss you Stan.
And here he is! The man himself, Kevin Feige, ready to roll.
Kevin is back! #SDCC2022 #MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/D2UwXo240ZJuly 24, 2022

The lucky folks in Hall H have just been treated to the first Secret Invasion trailer. It doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing it, but star Cobie Smulders, who returns as Maria Hill, has told audiences that this is “…a darker show. It’s going to be a thrilling thriller. You’ll never know who.” are people.”
In addition to the return of Nick Fury of Hill and Samuel L. Jackson, the trailer also features an appearance from Don Cheadle’s War Machine.
Show us that damn thing!

The public will now see some footage from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Paul Rudd and the cast have been on stage for a chat and have said they will be spending a lot of time in the quantum realm.
They have also confirmed that the one and only Bill Murray has a key role.
Now James Gunn is talking all about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Sadly, this will be the end of his adventures with the gang in the MCU.

The Hall H audience just got a teaser for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.3, but unfortunately we won’t be doing that.
The footage shows Gamora as the head of the Ravagers, an origin story for Rocket Raccoon, and a first look at Will Poulter’s villain Adam Warlock.
A few new cast additions for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, Chukwudi Iwuji, best known for his role in the BBC’s outstanding drama, The Split, stars as the High Evolutionary, and Borats Maria Bakalova stars as Cosmo. To the uninitiated, Cosmo is a space dog. This should be fun…
