Marvel Comics Take the Spotlight in NYCC
Although Marvel Studios is missing at this year's New York Comic Con, the company still has a lot of goodies for diehard fans, especially those who are keeping tabs on what lies ahead on the comics side of things.
In fact, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige already teased that "maybe there will be more down the road" for Scarlet Johansson's Black Widow, hinting that it could be foreshadowed by stories from the pages of Marvel Comics.
Moreover, Marvel recently announced a new Fantastic Four reboot ahead of the MCU's live-action adaptation in Phase 6. Many have theorized that elements of this upcoming run could inspire the MCU's version.
Hopefully, more teases are in store at NYCC while also revealing more secrets about the bright future of Marvel Comics.
