Even though Marvel Studios will not have a high-profile presence at Hall H this year, there’s still a lot going on for fans at 2018 San Diego Comic-Con for fans of all things Marvel.
Here’s a look at the full schedule of offerings:
DAILY THROUGH SDCC
MARVEL’S CLOAK & DAGGER – FAN ACTIVATION
10:00 AM Petco Park
Freeform is bringing Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger to “The Experience” at Petco Park. Starting July 19th at 10am, fans will have the opportunity to engage with two different interactive activations over the course of four days.
Tying into the “divine pairing” theme from Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, Freeform will recreate the iconic moment between the two leads Tyrone and Tandy when their powers interact. To recreate this, Freeform is fabricating a physical experience where participants are harnessed to a bungee that will propel them backwards from the force of their powers. A slow-motion recording will capture the moment which will also include an overlay effect that shows both the light and dark energy emitting from the participants. Fans will have the opportunity to share their videos on social media.
Fans can also stop by the ROXXON Corp station to create their own customized ROXXON Corp badge and lanyard. Each badge will include a secret code that is connected to a wide range of prizes from Sony PlayStation Vue and Freeform. After receiving their customized badge, fans will be able to pose for a photo with the ROXXON Corp sign.
