Marvel, Sony and Paramount will all be absent from Comic-Con when it takes over San Diego next month.
Superhero heavy Marvel also missed the fan convention in 2011, but the studio already hosted a fan event in October where they announced upcoming plans for “The Avengers” franchises, along with release dates for “Doctor Strange” and “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.”
Meanwhile, Sony and Paramount have opted to miss the festivities in Hall H because they don’t have suitable projects coming out in the near future, especially as it can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to present a film and none of the studios have upcoming films geared to the fanboy community.
Comic-Con is held at the San Diego Convention Center from July 8-12.
Variety first reported the news.
