Marvel's Kevin Feige Explains Why the Studio Is Skipping Comic-Con This Year

No Marvel at Comic-Con??
Marvel president Kevin Feige -- alongside Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd -- explained in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter why the studio is skipping the annual geek festivities.
"It was just timing. We had done that [media] event in October, when we announced so much," said Feige. "Everyone knows what we're doing over the next few years. I really have a belief: If you can’t go to Comic-Con and over-deliver, then don't go."

Fair enough! When you're a studio that lays out your whole game plan through 2019, it makes sense you wouldn't have very many big reveals to make a Comic-Con presentation exciting.
Also in the interview, Rudd opened up about how he wound up starring in a big superhero feature, and he was as surprised as the rest of us.
"I don't have an agenda where I do a comedy and say, 'I have to do a drama next,' or 'I am looking for an action movie now,'" said Rudd. "The Marvel world wasn’t anything I thought about seriously because I guess I never imagined I'd get hired."
Well, Paul, we are certainly glad you did!
Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17. Get ready with this epic (but tiny) trailer from the movie!
