SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — It's an exciting return for many San Diego Comic-Con fans.
Marvel Studios will reportedly return to the convention's grand Hall H presentation stage this year, according to a report from Deadline.
The movie studios branch of Marvel Comics was last on the Hall H stage in 2017 to show off flicks "Thor: Ragnorok," "Black Panther," "Avengers: Infinity War," and news on "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and "Captain Marvel."

- Report: HBO's 'Game of Thrones' coming to San Diego Comic-Con 2019
Marvel Studios news and footage was locked behind Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim last year.
With the release of "Avengers: Endgame," many may be asking what can Marvel possibly have up its sleeves for such a grand panel?
While the studios hasn't formally announced plans, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to begin its "Phase Four" roll out of films in 2020, after the release of this summer's "Spider-Man: Far From Home."
Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney Plus, will also publish new Marvel content, with spin-off shows involving MCU characters with implications in the studio's future films.
Disney's $71-billion purchase of 21st Century Fox film and TV assets included X-Men and the Fantastic Four coming back to Marvel — though, any reveals on those properties is considered rumor so soon after the merger.
Marvel Studios will join HBO'S "Game of Thrones" back in the Hall H hot seat this year, after both properties skipped out on the presentation space last year. Warner Bros., which develops DC Comics films, has already announced they will not have a Hall H panel at the convention's 50th anniversary.
San Diego Comic-Con returns to downtown San Diego July 18 - 21, with Preview Night held on July 17.
