Marvel Comic-Con

If you enjoy attending cons like NYCC and SDCC to get a first glimpse of the latest Marvel news, you might want to start planning different travel arrangements. MCU head honcho Kevin Feige recently said he’s keen to see a Marvel-specific convention, similar to Disney’s Star Wars Celebration event. Good news for Marvel fans, not such good news for regular Comic-Con attendees. The Marvel convention news awaits you below.

The Avengers Infinity War footage

Note: The Avengers: Infinity War footage that played at Comic-Con (and brought down the house) was the same footage that we previously saw at D23. Because of that, we are bumping our old post, just in case you missed it the first time. In Hall H, in front of a crowd of 7,000 eager fans, this footage killed. We have also added additional details that we noticed on this second viewing.

The original post follows. Just mentally replace “D23” with “Comic-Con.”

As expected, the live-action films panel at the the 2017 D23 expo concluded with a first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. This grand culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far promises to be an epic experience, one that brings the many (many, many) heroes of these movies together for their biggest battle yet. Naturally, the first footage from the film screened and we have a rundown of what you need to know.

This past weekend, our own Peter Sciretta journeyed to the 2017 D23 Expo to learn all about the various movies Disney and its many partners will be bringing us over the next few years.

Here is all of our coverage in one place.

DisneyToons Space Movie

Just before the weekend, the D23 Expo brought a slew of announcements and teaser footage shown for the likes of Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 and Frozen 2 (and the short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure) from Walt Disney Animation, as well as Pixar Animation movies like The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 on the sequel side of things, this year’s Coco, and an original, untitled suburban fantasy film. But there was one other project that we glossed over, and it’s actually more intriguing than it initially sounded.

DisneyToon Studios is the Walt Disney production banner behind a lot of low quality direct-to-video sequels, but every now and then they have some solid theatrical releases like A Goofy Movie. They’re also the company behind Planes, the movie that’s set in the Cars universe (as is the film Planes: Fire & Rescue), even though it’s not a Pixar Animation production. Now the company has announced a new movie that takes place in the Cars and Planes universe, and it raises a slew of new questions about the strange animated world.

As expected, several major announcements regarding the future of the Epcot theme park at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida came out of the D23 Expo.

mickey mouse theme park ride

After 89 years as Walt Disney World’s iconic mascot, Mickey Mouse will finally get a solo theme park attraction built entirely around him.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be Mickey’s Mouse’s first theme park attraction ever, despite the thousands of Hidden Mickey’s scattered across Walt Disney World and Disneyland rides throughout the country. But don’t worry, just because this ride will be all about him doesn’t mean that the Runaway Railway won’t have a few Hidden Mickey’s of its own.

We’ve been calling Disney’s upcoming Star Wars land “Star Wars Land” by default, mainly because it hasn’t had an official name. Until now. At the theme park panel at this year’s D23, it was officially revealed that the immersive experience coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World will be called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. With this news came a number of other tantalizing tidbits about what we can expect from this new land…including a fun cameo from a certain droid beloved to Disney fans.
