Will ‘Ms. Marvel’s AvengerCon Pave the Way for an IRL MCU Fan Convention?

To not brag or something, however I used to be one of many many critics invited to display the primary two episodes of Ms. Marvel weeks upfront of the Disney+ present’s debut yesterday. I used to be totally enchanted by Iman Vellani’s quirky lady efficiency, charmed by the present’s Heartstopper-esque embrace of comedian e-book touches, and fairly gosh darn positive Marvel was utilizing the collection to tender launch its subsequent main advertising instrument, AvengerCon. It’s not simply that Ms. Marvel‘s entire first episode revolves round Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) scheming her strategy to the fan conference, however that Disney+ took pains to make the occasion really feel extra intimate, extra spectacular, and extra tied to the MCU than any IRL Con. I walked away from the present all however satisfied that AvengerCon could be an actual Marvel fan conference sooner or later…and it appears I used to be proper! (Cue cackling.)

Gizmodo reported that in a latest Ms. Marvel press convention, Marvel chief Kevin Feige confirmed that there had been conversations on set about making AvengerCon actual.

“We had been undoubtedly speaking about that on the set. We shot that proper in the midst of covid protocols. So there hadn’t been a conference for a really very long time, and it was very cathartic for all of us to see that.” Later Feige even teased, “There is perhaps a couple of locations you’ll be able to go and go to the Ms. Marvel model of AvengerCon,” prompting theories that Kamala’s fave fan occasion may get a recreation at a Disney theme park or throughout one other actual life conference.

Okay, so it appears like Marvel is a minimum of eager on recreating Kamala Khan’s AvengerCon as a fan expertise they’ll stroll by way of as a nod to Ms. Marvel’s manufacturing design. It could possibly be just like both the Mandalorian Expertise at Lucasfilm’s latest Star Wars Celebration or how one can pose for pics within the Millennium Falcon at Star Wars: Galaxy Edge. That model of AvengerCon seems like a enjoyable no-brainer for Marvel. And but I actually assume Disney would possibly double down and create an annual fan conference known as AvengerCon in our actual world.

Give it some thought. Even earlier than the pandemic, Marvel made headlines by skipping San Diego Comedian-Con in 2018. Whereas they returned in 2019, they sat 2021 out. The studio additionally appears simply as completely satisfied to announce main casting information at occasions like Disney’s personal D23 Expo as they do in Corridor H. That signifies that Marvel definitely isn’t married to San Diego Comedian-Con or NYCC. Moreover, the just about common euphoric response to the latest Star Wars Celebration proves that followers are completely keen to embrace a extra “area of interest” conference expertise post-pandemic. Celebration allowed likeminded followers to attach and Lucasfilm to completely curate a centered fan expertise. Why wouldn’t Marvel need one thing related for the MCU? And wouldn’t the apparent theme for an MCU-driven conference be…AvengerCon?

AvengerCon could possibly be Marvel followers’ one cease store for all issues MCU-related and comics impressed. It could possibly be a spot the place information breaks and followers get to get pleasure from a very immersive expertise the best way Kamala does. In my thoughts, it’s not a query of if Marvel will create their very own AvengerCon, however why haven’t they achieved it already? It’s a no brainer for the worldwide model.

So, yeah, Ms. Marvel is perhaps a candy little present centered on one teen lady from Jersey Metropolis, however its AvengerCon has implications for the way forward for the MCU in the true world as a complete.
