Comic-Con@Home: Marvel Panel Schedules Released
The show must go on! We at MarvelBlog are thrilled that Comic-Con will still take place this year. Organizers have announced that Comic-Con@Home 2020 will be live-streamed to fans everywhere via its YouTube page.
Beginning on Wednesday, July 22 and running through Sunday, July 26, there is so much content to be excited about! The free event will feature more than 350 panels with actors and writers from television, movies, gaming and comics.
Comic-Con@Home Schedule of Events
Fans anticipate this annual event as a venue for new movie announcements and release dates. Unfortunately, there will be less of that this year since many productions and future planning have stopped due to COVID-19.
The annual event typically provides an opportunity for fans to interact with panelists. Without a live audience, there will not be much opportunity for questions and answers. However, some panelists will answer questions written in by fans during pre-recordings.
Comic-Con attendees may use MySCHED to make a personalized calendar of panels they’d like to attend. Fans can sign up for an account on SCHED.com, which has been used at Comic-Con for the past several years. They may then access their account via personal computer or mobile phone, on the Internet or via the MySCHED app. Moreover, users can share their schedule with friends.
