Marvel Entertainment is one of the featured companies any time there is a comic book convention, and is an A-Lister whenever Disney holds a D23 Expo - but could Marvel ever do their own convention?

Spoilers: it did, and they're thinking about doing it again.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that there have been discussions for a D23 Expo-style event specifically focused on Marvel.

"Over the years there have been discussions about that," Feige told Fandango. "I think what we try to do occasionally in San Diego we're very proud of and think is a fun tradition. That being said, I think [Star Wars] Celebration is pretty amazing. I've been to a few Celebrations and the idea of doing something like that ... I think we have enough content, and enough fans, and enough ideas that we could easily do something like that, I'm just not sure where or when."

In 1975, Marvel Comics hosted its own comic book convention - Marvelcon. It is most memorably where Stan Lee announced Jack Kirby was returning to work for the publisher after a five year stint at DC Comics. Although a second event was planned for 1976, it was cancelled.
