20th Century Fox to Skip 2016 Comic-Con: Report

It is not unusual for studios to miss a Comic-Con.

    Not all of the major studios will be attending San Diego International Comic-Con this year, according to one report.

    20th Century Fox will likely skip the popular fan fair as a result of piracy concerns, according to The L.A. Times.

    Last year, Fox’s Comic-Con exclusive footage of “Deadpool” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” were leaked online shortly after being presented to fans. Warner Brothers’ “Suicide Squad” was also illegally leaked after the event last summer.

    NBC 7 San Diego reached out to Fox to confirm the report, but the studio said they would not be commenting. 

    Nonetheless, it is not unheard of for a studio to miss Comic-Con.

    Marvel, Paramount and Sony did not attend the last convention and studios usually skip when they have less material to preview.

    However, fans still have much to look forward to as other movies like “Spider-Man,” “Doctor Strange” and the next Star Wars film “Rogue One” are expected to be teased.
