D23 and Marvel to Host ‘The X-Men Hellfire Gala’ During San Diego Comic-Con 2023

D23 to Host The X-Men Hellfire Gala

Marvel and D23 are partnering for a one-of-a-kind X-Men experience during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) as they bring “The Hellfire Gala” to life.

What We Know So Far

Marvel and D23 will be bringing the living island of Krakoa to San Diego, California, on July 22, 2023, in a special event for D23 Gold Members only.

“The Hellfire Gala” invites the worlds of mutants, celebrities, and Super Heroes to witness, and be dazzled by, mutantkind’s global achievements. This revolutionary event is also where the highly anticipated announcement is made for the annual line-up of X-Men.

Could this also be where Marvel makes an official announcement about X-Men in the MCU? The setting would be right.

This epic comic crossover event is being brought to life for the first time ever from in-page to in-person, celebrating this year’s “Hellfire Gala” in the pages of X-Men comics, along with the 60th anniversary of the X-Men.

D23 says attendees are encouraged to dress in super-powered style (translated: Cosplay is very welcome!), and those who attend will get “the chance to strike a pose, and enter an extraordinary event filled with fashion, fun, and forces to be reckoned with.”

Ticket details have not been released yet, but I wanted to get this news out to all of you X-Men fans because this is an event you’ll need to plan for since if you aren’t already booked to attend SDCC 2023, you may have problems finding accomodations in the city.

But as soon as ticket details have been revealed, I will definitely let you all know.

San Diego Comic-Con 2023

San Diego Comic-Con is one of the world’s largest “comic-cons” a convention for fans of genre programming: science-fiction, fantasy, horror, superheroes, and more.

Since it’s inception in the 1970s, SDCC has become THE place where film and TV studios reveal news on big projects, often bringing the entire casts along for fans to see.

Disney brought a lot of news on upcoming projects, especially for Marvel and Star Wars, at last year’s SDCC22, so I can’t wait to see what they bring this year!

SDCC will return to San Diego July 20-23, 2023, with “The Hellfire Gala” taking place on Saturday, July 22. For more details on SDCC23, visit
