UPDATE (7/10/17): We’d already heard of the cancellation of the MARVEL’S THE PUNISHER Madison Square Garden panel in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting tragedy (replaced by a screening of a rare sit down with Stan Lee). And now, following the critical backlash of a planned collaboration with military arms manufacturer Northrop Grumman, Marvel have decided to pull the planned title and cancel their ‘surprise’ signing event, prompting the release of a revised panel / talent listing:
