The first (official) day of the four-day event promises to be filled to the brim with plenty of superhero goodness. 20th Century Fox is “keeping pretty quiet,” according to The Verge, but that has fans buzzing more about what could show up.

That’s just the start. Marvel’s Defenders will be featured during IGN’s coverage on July 21, as well as all the news coming out of the event. Fans of zombies and Norman Reedus, 48, better tune in on July 22. Before broadcasting “huge Marvel & DC Reveals,” IGN and Twitter say they’re going to have the cast of The Walking Dead.
