Once again, Disney and Warner Bros. have decided not to feature future Marvel and DC Comics projects at the 2021 edition of San Diego Comic-Con @ Home Virtual Edition this year, the second year in a row that the iconic convention has virtually stopped the pandemic. to deal with the complications arising due to
Hall H has been the traditional stage on which the biggest summer walks are advertised. In the case of Warner Bros., its absence is quite the glare.

In Marvel’s case, it’s less straightforward, as D23, a Disney-hosted convention, has been on hiatus until 2022, although there are rumors Disney may bring back convention presentations in some other way. Marvel Studios’ absence from Comic-Con suggests that Idea House has its own virtual platform for productions.
In the meantime, Comic-Con International will host a one-on-one event over the weekend of November 26–28, although the intention is to present an event on a modest scale compared to traditional Comic-Con, so any property’s attendance at the MCU and DC seems less likely.

Comic-Con @ Home is a completely free virtual event. Last year’s edition saw Keanu Reeves and the rest of the cast of “Constantine” celebrate their birthdays, while Kevin Smith presented a special event for the film “Bill and Ted Face the Music”. Despite its grueling planning, the event received sharp criticism for failing to capture the essence of the traditional convention.
Deadline reports that the only DC property to appear at the virtual edition of Comic-Con will be the CW series “Legends of Tomorrow,” due to its special Christmas animation “Bevo Saves Christmas.” “Comic-Con @ Home” will take place July 23-25.
