Although we are just weeks away from this year’s Comic-Con, fans will have a smaller number of movies to be excited about as Sony Picture just announced that it will be joining Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures to skip the event this year.
The news first came via Deadline which reported that the studio is skipping the comic con entirely. However, the news doesn’t come off as a major shock as Sony has surprisingly low number of movies in works at the moment. Although we previously thought that Sony will promote Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it seems that Sony decided not to market the movie during the event which is scheduled for just few days before the flick hits theaters. However, it’ll be extremely surprising if Sony doesn’t end up screening the movie during Comic-Con.
Apart from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Sony has Zombieland 2: Double Tap and Charlie’s Angels scheduled for release later this year. While the studio could promote Bloodshot, the movie has a release date of February 21, 2020 which means it’s too early to start promoting the movie.
On the other hand, Marvel will come back to attend the event after skipping it last year. As a result, Marvel and Paramount Pictures are the only major movie studios hosting Comic-Con panels this year. Hopefully, both of the studios will reveal more details about their upcoming movies to make up for the lack of studios attending this year’s event.
