Chaos erupts in Hall H as the shipment of giveaway hats for the Marvel panel goes missing.
Ending the Marvel Studios panel, the audience was promised a hat as a giveaway. Many people immediately got up to use the bathroom or try to leave, assuming the hats would be by the entrance. Nearly a full two minutes after the panel ended, it was announced that they would be handed out to people in seats only. Full-out chaos began as people struggled to find seats they had only just abandoned. The Reserved seating staffers had to go round and remove people who were understandably upset that their original seat was taken.
Overheard by the stage, a staffer told the Comic Com execs that, "no one knows where the hats are. Are they outside or inside?" She was waved off and an announcement was made that there would be a small delay and everything would be worked out.
As of 7:34, hats just started being handed out.
