Last year, much to the dismay and chagrin of comic-book fans, Disney-owned Marvel Studios decided to forgo their presence at San Diego's famous Comic-Con. Marvel boss Kevin Feige gave the reason that the timing wasn't right, according to The Hollywood Reporter. However, now it looks like Marvel will be back in 2016's Comic-Con.

The director of "Doctor Strange," Scott Derrickson, dropped a not-so-subtle hint in a tweet:

Even "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn indicated that the inter-galactic movie will also be present at the biggest pop culture convention in the world.

Last year, Marvel decided to release new "Doctor Strange" and "Captain America: Civil War" footage at the D23 convention instead of Comic-Con. Given that 2016 has no D23 convention and that "Doctor Strange" is in post-production, Marvel may use Comic-Con to promote their upcoming fall movie which stars "Sherlock" actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Furthermore, the sequel to "Guardians Of The Galaxy" and "Thor: Ragnarok" are currently in production, hence the studio can easily whip up some promotional videos for these movies. Moreover, fans can also expect an official announcement of the actress and director assigned to 2019's "Captain Marvel" — a film that is generating a lot of buzz lately.

However, Marvel has yet to make an official announcement that they will be there at the pop culture event.

Cumberbatch stars as neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who suffers from career-ending injuries in a car crash in "Doctor Strange." Hoping to cure these injuries, he travels the world and uncovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. This is the first time the comic-book giant is delving into the world of mystical arts and alternate realms.

2016's San Diego Comic-Con will take place from July 21 to 24 at the San Diego Convention Center. "Doctor Strange" hits theatres on Nov. 4, 2016.
