Hello there! Welcome to TechRadar’s Marvel live blog where we’ll be following along with Marvel President Kevin Feige as he unveils what’s next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe live from Hall H at 2022’s San Diego Comic Con.
The whole thing starts at 1 AM UK time, or 5 PM in sunny Los Angeles, but excitement is already building…
We can definitely expect some announcements from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, star Chris Pratt is on his way, so expect something, hopefully a first trailer…

Comic Con has been in full swing since Thursday and there have been some real highlights already. Yesterday, we got another Lord Of The Rings trailer for Prime Video’s megabucks TV series The Rings Of Power, which teased a proper look at original big bad Sauron. You can see exactly where the $465 million it cost to make the series has gone:
And a first look at the fourth instalment of John Wick, which looks very special indeed.
Earlier today, we got a chance to see the first trailer for Shazam! Fury Of The Gods, which you can read more about here.
And Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson kicking all kinds of behinds 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 some sneak peak of Secret Invasion or Loki season 2? We should get something from She-Hulk, given that’s less than a month away now…
But what will the surprises be? Could we get some details on Deadpool 3? A reboot for X-Men? And will we finally find out just who the new Fantastic Four will be?
While we’re waiting for this all to get started, Netflix has dropped a new trailer for The Sandman.
Earlier on, Warner Bros. offered up a look at their movie slate. While it was nice to see Black Adam and Shazam!, the lack of anything on Aquaman, The Flash, The Batman or Wonder Woman felt quite disappointing.
Also, rumors of Henry Cavill making an appearance to finally map out what’s next for Superman turned out to be unfounded…

The news is starting to trickle in. Andy Park, Director of Visual Development at Marvel Studios, has showed off a first poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Looming large there in the background is Kang, played by Lovecraft Country’s Jonathan Majors. Also known as Kang the Conqueror, a time traveler who is out to control history and has come into conflict with a variety of Marvel heroes over the course of his history in the comic books.
Could this mean a trailer? Who knows? Let’s hope so.

Yesterday, Marvel’s animated arm offered up a look at a few things. There were announcements about the second and THIRD season of What If…?, while those in the room got a first look at X-Men ’97, Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
We also to got to see the adorable first trailer for Guardians spin-off I Am Groot, which is coming next month.
Need a refresher of Marvel’s Phase 4 ahead of the panel?
Half an hour to go.
If you need a little pick me up, relive the moment the cast of Black Panther saw footage of the movie for the first time at Comic Con in 2017. It’s an absolute tonic.
Great Moments in Hall H History: July 2017. The first #BlackPanther footage screens only for the Hall H crowd & the place goes wild w/ a standing ovation from 6,000 fans. The cast had not seen the footage yet either and this was their reaction. #SDCC pic.twitter.com/bejt81ebHqJuly 23, 2022
10 minutes to go. Let’s relive the final 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 kick things off, with narration 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

More big news. Thunderbolts will be final act of Marvel’s Phase 5. It’s coming in summer 2024.
If rumors are to be believed, then Thunderbolts will be a team-up between Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, Sebastien Stan’s Winter Soldier, Daniel Brühl’s Baron Zemo, Olga Kurylenko’s Taskmaster, Hannah John-Kamen’s Ghost, Wyatt Russell’s US Agent, and Tim Roth’s Abomination.
Will that be confirmed today?

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

The crowd are now being shown some footage from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Paul Rudd and the cast have been on stage to chat and have told to expect to spend a lot of time in the quantum realm.
They’ve also confirmed the one and only Bill Murray has a key role.
Now James Gunn is up talking all things Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Sadly, it’s going to be the end of his adventures with the gang in the MCU.

The Hall H crowd just got a teaser for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.3, but we, sadly, will not.
In the footage we see Gamora as the head of the Ravagers, an origin story for Rocket Raccoon, and a first look at Will Poulter’s villain Adam Warlock.
