Deadpool 2 Taking Over San Diego Comic-Con

Fox is bringing Deadpool 2 to San Diego Comic-Con in a big way. The most intriguing thing is that Deadpool will take over the usual Marvel Studios Hall H spot Saturday evening. For those living under a rock, Marvel Studios is usually the capstone to the coveted Saturday Hall H. With Marvel Studios not coming to SDCC this year, it's curious that Fox would take over the spot with Deadpool, a movie that came out back in May. Sure, the Super Duper $@%!#& Cut of Deadpool 2 is coming in August, but is that enough for a whole hour in Hall H? My guess is that maybe we'll hear more about Drew Goddard's X-Force. It's also curious that Fox has X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants coming out next year and despite obviously having footage, they're nowhere on the SDCC schedule. 

Regardless of the status of the buyout from Disney, I think it's very clear what comic book properties at Fox are seen as winners and which ones they would rather pretend don't exist.
