Saturday was Marvel’s big day at Disney’s annual D23 event. Back in July, Marvel revealed a lot about their future shows and films at the San Diego ComicCon, and some series and films were expanded upon this weekend. Secret Invasion, starring Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury premieres in the spring. This weekend, we saw the trailer. Comic-Con also addressed the Hawkeyespinoff Echo, which was elaborated on at the D23 event. Ditto for Loki season two, also addressed in July and again this weekend. Ironheart, a character who will debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, also was discussed. Two big reveals of the weekend had to do with the Fantastic Four and the Thunderbolts.
A number of trailers were shown at D23 that have not been released on YouTube, including The Marvels. The Marvels‘ stars, Brie Larson as Carol (Captain Marvel) Danvers, Iman Vellani as Kamala (Ms. Marvel) Khan, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, were all there, along with director Nia DaCosta.
Ryan Coogler appeared with some of the cast members of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and showed a new trailer. Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Jonathan Majors appeared and showed the trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. None of the above trailers have been released in official form to YouTube or any other social media platform yet. Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio also took the stage to discuss the upcoming Daredevil series coming to Disney+, but production on that has not begun. Cox confirmed that his Matt Murdock/Daredevil character will only appear in one episode of the currently running series She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
Meanwhile, fans of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, were disappointed when there was no mention of that character’s future during the panel. Fans of Moon Knight, the Disney+ show starring Oscar Issac, were also disappointed when there was no mention of that character either. Fans were also hoping to get any news at all about the future of the X-Men (even the previously announced X-Men ’97 animated series), but sadly, it was a mutant-free weekend.
Here’s some of the big moments from D23.
