After taking this past summer's Comic-Con International in San Diego off, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to the convention circuit with a panel at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7, held in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Marvel's live-action publicity campaigns as of late have focused on Inhumans, so not much has yet been revealed of season five of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is slated to premiere in late 2017. The panel description reads, "Join Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television, in celebrating Season Five of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with the entire cast and executive producers as they come together at Madison Square Garden, for the very first time, with an action-packed panel, Q&A and never-before-seen footage."
While fans still are waiting for a premiere date announcement for Marvel and Netflix's The Punisher, the show will get an NYCC panel at 5:15 p.m. on Saturday, headlined by star Jon Bernthal and also taking place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Loeb will moderate the panel, which will also include as-yet unnamed members of the show's cast in addition to Bernthal.
Friday at NYCC, Marvel's Runaways -- the first Marvel show on Hulu -- will be in the spotlight for a 7:45 p.m. panel at the convention's main stage, about six weeks before the series' Nov. 21 premiere. Here's the description: "Marvel’s Runaways makes a fresh landing in New York as Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television, joins the stellar cast and executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage to let you in on some of the secrets and mysteries of the highly-anticipated, new Hulu Original Series, Marvel’s Runaways. You won’t want to miss this fun-filled panel featuring exclusive footage."
Rounding out the Marvel-based live-action programming at NYCC is Fox's The Gifted, which will take the main stage at 2:45 p.m. Sunday. It hasn't yet been specified who will appear at the panel, beyond, "Join series stars and producers for an exclusive first-look of the second episode from the fall’s critically acclaimed new family adventure series," though Loeb is a good bet given his presence at the other panels, and the cooperation between Marvel Television and Fox's Marvel-based TV series (as opposed to Fox's Marvel-based films, which remain distinctly separate from Disney-owned Marvel Studios).
Marvel Animation will also hold a panel at 11 a.m. on Sunday in room 1A06, with looks at Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther Quest, Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
New York Comic Con takes place Oct. 5 through Oct. 8 at the Javits Center in New York City.
