‘Punisher’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Will Team Up for New York Comic-Con Panels
Neither The Punisher nor Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got to hold court at Comic-Con 2017, but Marvel will change that for New York. Both series will be granted their own panels in Madison Square Garden to preview the upcoming seasons from NYCC.
Ahead of New York Comic-Con in October, Marvel confirms that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return to the convention circuit ahead of Season 5, having been supplanted at San Diego by The Inhumans. The Agents will take over Madison Square Garden on Saturday, October 7 at 2:00 P.M., promising “an action-packed panel, Q&A and never-before-seen footage.”
And while Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle has been crashing panels for the better part of a year now, The Punisher will get his own official event later that day at 5:15 P.M., featuring Bernthal and the cast for a “must-see panel and exclusive first look at the upcoming season.” The series is reportedly earmarked to premiere in November, so hopefully we won’t have to wait a full month for Marvel and Netflix’s to announce the official premiere.
We’ll hear more in the coming weeks, and stay tuned for the latest on New York Comic-Con as well.
