Marvel Television will spotlight its upcoming shows at next month's New York Comic Con. FX’s “Legion” and Netflix’s “Iron Fist” were announced today as part of their lineup, along with ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and a few animated series.
Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb will moderate the “S.H.I.E.L.D.” panel on Friday, October 7 and “Iron Fist” on Saturday. “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will screen an upcoming episode from its fourth season, while “Iron Fist” will debut new footage as well. Last year, Loeb surprised attendees by debuting the entire first episode of “Jessica Jones,” but it's unclear at this time what "Iron Fist" footage they'll feature this year. The cast of "Iron Fist" will also make an appearance, though it was not specified who will attend.
"Fans are going to love the sneak peaks of our newest shows that we have lined up for New York Comic Con," Loeb said in a statement. "With a first look at 'Marvel’s Iron Fist' and a new episode of 'Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.', we want to blow you away with the exclusive Marvel content at this year’s show."
On Sunday, October 9, Marvel will hold a panel for “Legion,” an "X-Men" series from “Fargo” showrunner Noah Hawley. The panel will feature footage from the upcoming FX series and a Q&A with Hawley and the cast. The “Legion” panel will be held in the Hammerstein Ballroom.
On the animation side, Marvel will hold its usual animation panel on Saturday, with their new film “Marvel’s Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell” premiering on Sunday.
