Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo

In a surprising move, Marvel Studios has officially announced that they will not be holding a panel presentation in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con. That move is noteworthy, since the star-studded introduction of the complete cast of The Avengers closed Comic-Con 2010. (Avengers is currently slated for a May 2012 release.) A rep for Marvel Studios noted that the company “will have other things going on at the Marvel booth,” along with “other to-be-announced activities.” Though the Los Angeles Times theorized that Marvel may hold a presentation at August’s D23 expo — an event run by Disney, Marvel’s corporate parent, which will supposedly feature Comic-Con-like presentations of The Lone Ranger and John Carter — it’s unclear whether there will be any Avengers footage at D23. (The official word from Marvel Studios: “So far all perception about D23 has been from the media and not something that Disney has communicated about either way.”)
