Neither Disney’s Marvel Studios nor Warner Bros.’ DC Films will be at Comic-Con@Home, meaning you shouldn’t expect any news from Marvel’s Eternals or Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Deadline reports that both of the pop culture heavyweights will be skipping this year’s event, which is scheduled for later this month.

Instead, Comic-Con@Home will spotlight movies like Snake Eyes and shows like Bob’s Burgers. Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 2 will also be featured at the event, so it won’t be totally bereft of superheroes. And as Deadline points out, this news doesn’t totally rule out Sony, which could still make some sort of appearance with Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Morbius.

Warner Bros., for its part, has recently found success with its own DC Fandome event, where it debuted Suicide Squad’s full cast, the Justice League Snyder Cut teaser trailer, and lots more. The MCU, meanwhile, continues to dominate streaming with popular MCU shows like Loki. Both have managed to make their own way without the help of the hype generated by San Diego Comic-Con.

This is the second year that Comic-Con will be an all-digital event. Like many other shows, Comic-Con took to streaming amid the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, with panels being hosted on Youtube. There’s no telling when the in-person Comic-Con event will return.

In the meantime, this year’s Comic-Con@Home will run from July 23 to July 25. Keep an eye on IGN for all the biggest news as the big event gets underway.
