For the first time its entire run, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will sit out Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen revealed the show's decision to skip the massive entertainment convention in the following post to Twitter.
As the tweet indicates, while S.H.I.E.L.D. will not have a presence at SDCC, it will indeed return to New York Comic Con this October.
Series star Clark Gregg also took to Twitter to mourn the absence of his show from SDCC:
…have become so sexy that SDPD and @marvel security could no longer guarantee their safety. Last year even a team of actual Inhumans…(2/4)— Clark Gregg (@clarkgregg) June 30, 2017
…failed to prevent one (lucky) fan from nibbling off part of Iain’s ear lobe. In all seriousness, we’re really sorry to anyone who’s… (3/4)— Clark Gregg (@clarkgregg) June 30, 2017
disappointed. We consider our loyal, badass fandom wholly responsible for S.5 and though the timing this year puts us at #NYCC17 (4 of IDK)— Clark Gregg (@clarkgregg) June 30, 2017
Though Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will not be at SDCC, plenty of other Marvel Television fare will be making a splash at the convention, including Marvel's Inhumans, Legion, The Gifted and The Defenders, in addition to several Marvel Animation projects.
Returning January 2018 on ABC, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Chloe Bennet as Daisy “Quake” Johnson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie and more.
