Marvel Studios, and in particular the “Iron Man” franchise, have a long and storied history with Comic-Con and Hall H. Nearly all of their films have had a presence at the show, oftentimes debuting footage shot only days before the convention. “Captain America” famously debuted an impressively polished reel two years ago after only one week of shooting.

It was a clever ruse. While Marvel Studios planned for its late day panel of "Iron Man 3," British filmmaker Edgar Wright tweeted away the morning as if he was in London, England, even referencing San Diego's Comic-Con. But in a not-so-surprise move this evening (the cat was out of the bag earlier in the day), Wright joined Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige, ahead of the "Iron Man 3" panel to show off recent test-footage shot for "Ant-Man."

"Phase Two begins right now!" the teaser recap footage from Marvel's 2012 Comic-Con panel cried out. And the studio wasted no time making some major announcements. Right off the bat, before their talent had even taken the stage, Marvel revealed the titles for all their phase two films.

When you direct and rewrite one of the biggest films of all time, and are often considered the architect of said feature for pulling off the various and disparate movie threads that lead to that complex feat, everyone wants to know what you're going to do for an encore.

Comic-Con officially begins today, but Fox, who've been a frequent presence at the event in past years (including stealing the show in 2011 with the first footage from "Prometheus"), are more or less absent, other than a separate panel for their 2013 summer hope "After Earth." More than anything else, it's simply because they don't have anything relevant to show; the long-delayed "The Wolverine" is only getting underway in the next few weeks, and "X-Men: First Class 2" won't shoot until early next year.

More Marvel mystery moves as the studio, with just a few weeks before to go before Comic-Con, has shifted its unknown 2014 movie from May 14th to August 1st. So what does this all mean? Who knows. While it was recently reported that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" was the title it was keeping secret for that slot (and it's largely expected that it will be 'Guardians'), as usual, the studio has remained tightlipped, so who knows what exactly its cooking up. But the shift is a savvy one.

After much speculation, it seems that we now know the identity of Marvel's secret film that's been long targeted for a May 2014 release. And it's not "Ant-Man," or "Black Panther," or "Runaways," or "Doctor Strange." It's "Guardians Of The Galaxy," the cosmic adventure that was a favorite in the 1970s before being revived recently.
