New live-action and animated series, including ABC's The Inhumans, Fox's The Gifted, Netflix's The Defenders (in Hall H) and Disney XD's Marvel's Spider-Man are front and center for Marvel Television's 2017 San Diego Comic-Con programming slate, but interestingly, Marvel's Agents of Shield does not have a program on the initial schedule.
Fans will remember last year the introduction of Ghost Rider to the ABC action-drama was Marvel TV's big focus, with teasers appearing on public transportation near the convention center, his car on display at the Marvel booth, and the official announcement coming at an Agents of Shield panel.
No reason was given for why the program, entering its fifth season, does not have a dedicated panel this year, although it will premiere in 2018 at a mid-season replacement this season.
Below is Marvel's official press release announcing their full schedule:
