Last week at the D23 Expo held in Anaheim, California, Marvel released exclusive 5-minute footage of the highly anticipated “Avengers: Infinity War.” Marvel still had surprises for Comic-Con. The Marvel panel, held in Hall H, has always been the biggest. Here are some of the details from the panel.

'Thor: Ragnarok'

The third Thor film is the next film to be released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe schedule. “Thor: Ragnarok” is directed by Taika Waiti and compared to the serious “Thor: The Dark World," Waiti promised that there will be some humor in “Ragnarok.” The film will also be introducing new heroes and villains, including Tessa Thompson who will be playing the Asgardian warrior Valkyrie and Jeff Goldblum who will be playing the Grandmaster.

Cate Blanchett will also be in the film, playing the death goddess, Hela. Marvel also released a poster for “Ragnarok” and a new trailer. In the trailer, we see a Thor and Loki reunion, and the Hulk talks! Hulk/Bruce Banner actor Mark Ruffalo joked that the Hulk has the vocabulary of a 2-year-old.

“Thor: Ragnarok” is set to be released on November 3rd.

'Black Panther'

Marvel released new footage of the “Black Panther” film which received a massive reaction and a standing ovation from Hall H. The film’s director Ryan Coogler and some of the “Black Panther” cast including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Michael B. Jordan made a surprise appearance at the Marvel panel to talk about the film.

Boseman, who plays T’Challa/Black Panther, said that the film is set after the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” T’Challa is still mourning the death of his father and at the same time, he is struggling with the type of king he wants to be for Wakanda.

The film is scheduled for release on February 16, 2018.

'Ant-Man and the Wasp'

Before the Marvel panel began, producer Kevin Feige revealed some details regarding the upcoming films. Feige announced that Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining the second “Ant-Man film.” Pfeiffer will be playing Janet Van Dyne, who is the first Wasp and the wife of Dr. Hank Pym.

In the first Ant-Man film, the Wasp disappeared into the quantum realm while disabling a missile.

Laurence Fishburne is also joining the cast as Dr. Bill Foster who has growing powers, thus called the Black Goliath. Hannah John-Kamer and Randall Park will also be in the film as Ghost and Agent Jimmy Woo, respectively. Walton Goggins will be the villain of the film as Sonny Burch, a weapons mogul.

'Captain Marvel'

Last year, at the end of the Marvel panel, Feige announced that Brie Larson joined the Marvel Universe as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. This year, Feige showed the fans in Hall H some very beautiful art concepts for the film.

It showed Captain Marvel’s costume and her fighting some aliens.

Feige continued on and announced that the film will be set in the 1990’s, 20 years before the events of the first Iron Man film. The aliens that Captain Marvel was fighting in the concept art were the Skrulls, who will be the villains in the upcoming film. Samuel L. Jackson will also be in the upcoming film as Nick Fury. Feige said that in this film, Fury will not be wearing his iconic eye patch as he still has both of his eyes.

The film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. The film is scheduled for release on March 8, 2019.

Marvel’s panel closed with Feige showing the 7000 fans in Hall H the “Avengers: Infinity War” footage that was shown at the D23 Expo.
