Last year, Marvel Studios skipped San Diego Comic-Con International completely after making big announcements at Disney’s own D23 convention. This year, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is back, with the panel kicking off at 5:30 p.m. PT.
This post will be updated with new information as it comes in!
Peter Sciretta of Slash Film is reporting that the footage shown today won’t come out online, at least right away.
But someone did take a photo of the new Marvel logo.
Black Panther will start production in January. The film is being directed by Creed‘s Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boseman as the title character. During the panel, Coogler also confirmed that Michael B. Jordan will be starring as Killmonger. Jordan has starred in both of Coogler’s previous films, the excellent Fruitvale Station and Creed. Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) will lead the Dora Milaje.
Here’s footage of Boseman coming out on stage.
Here’s the main cast of Black Panther:
Thor: Ragnarok isn’t going to be represented because filming just began.
Ragnarok did at least get a new logo.
Doctor Strange takes over.
The full cast of Doctor Strange is there:
New Doctor Strange trailer is here!
Spider-Man: Homecoming now takes the stage.
As expected, Homecoming will be more like a high school movie… with superpowers involved.
A sizzle reel is being shown.
Vulture, who will likely be played by Michael Keaton, is the villain.
Now it’s time for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. The members of the cast are there, along with director James Gunn.
Footage from Guardians of the Galaxy was shown.
Brie Larson has been confirmed for Captain Marvel!
Marvel hasn’t announced what they plan to show or who will even be there, but it’s a safe bet that Doctor Strange with Benedict Cumberbatch will take up most of its 75-minute block. Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, is the next Marvel Studios film, opening on November 4. The studio has already released one trailer and a second did come out today.
There are three Marvel movies coming out in 2017, all of which got some news Saturday. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 did get a teaser, but it’s probably too soon to hope for one for Thor: Ragnarok. In between those films is Spider-Man: Homecoming, which will be produced with Sony and is the first solo movie for Tom Holland’s version of the character. He was first seen as Spidey in Captain America: Civil War.
Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 (2018) and Part 2 (2019) are far off into the future and Feige did not have any teases for the crowd. Instead, the night ended with a confirmation that Brie Larson is playing Captain Marvel, a project that still doesn’t have a director.
