While the MCU may be skipping out on SDCC 2018, the comic company’s TV offerings will be there in full force to represent the true believers with plenty of panels. According to a release, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, Legion, The Gifted, Iron Fist, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be at San Diego Comic-Con alongside the company’s animated offerings.

Cloak & Dagger will feature a panel with stars Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Emma Lahana, and Ally Maki with executive producer/showrunner Joe Pokaski; The Gifted offers one with executive producers Matt Nix and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb along with stars Stephen Moyer, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, and Skyler Samuels; Iron Fist is bringing out Loeb and some special guests; while Legion is bringing a panel including executive producers John Cameron, Loeb, co-EP Nathaniel Halpern, and assorted (but not specified) cast members.

S.H.I.E.L.D.'s cast will simply be having a reunion at the Marvel booth. But not to fear, there are also a few exciting things for new and upcoming series.

Marvel Rising, the upcoming animation franchise that Marvel hopes to launch, is bringing out the voice talent so fans can meet the team for the first time. That means Quake (Chloe Bennet), Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub), Ms. Marvel (Kathreen Khavari), and Patriot (Kamil McFadden) will all be at a panel alongside writer Mairghread Scott, a few executives, and some unnamed special surprise guests in the newest thing Marvel is allowing itself to launch in the shadow of Infinity War.

Oh, and did we mention that Cloak & Dagger fans can reenact the moment where Tyrone and Tandy’s powers interact? With bungee cords? Slo-mo recordings will capture the moment where fans are flung away from the sheer power of replicating the two heroes’ volatile powers. You bet we’re going to be first in line.
