NERDGASM ALERT: All The Deets From Marvel’s Huge Comic Con Panel

It was the most anticipated panel of San Diego Comic Con, and boy did it deliver.
Over almost two hours, the Marvel Studios panel covered all of their upcoming films for the next two years, with huge updates on the biggest superhero franchise in the game.
Leading the pack was a new trailer from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, giving us a better look at Cate Blanchett’s turn as evil villain/death metal frontwoman Hela. There are also some new scenes to chew over, including one featuring that crazy-huge Hulk bed that’s currently on display in Brisbane.
If you weren’t already eager for the Taika Watiti-helmed flick, this trailer may just push you over the edge.
As well as that we got a tonne of new info for the 568 films Marvel plans to release between now and the heat death of the universe.
Michelle Pfeiffer is joining the cast of ‘Ant Man and The Wasp’ as Janet Van Dyne, the wife of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym and the original Wasp. Much like Michael Keaton in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’, the casting is notable for Pfeiffer’s history with the genre, most notably as the scene-stealing Catwoman in ‘Batman Returns’.

The Brie Larson-starring ‘Captain Marvel’, the first Marvel film to feature a female lead, will be a period piece set in the 90s. It will also star Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, only with both of his eyes intact (!?!?!?).
New footage from next year’s ‘Black Panther’ was also shown. While the footage hasn’t gone up online yet, reports suggest that this one is going to be wild.

We also got a pair of new posters for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ and ‘Black Panther’, respectively. 

If there was anything missing from the panel, it was new info from ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, with only the same secret trailer that was shown a couple of weeks ago getting a second showing. Not that the nerds in the packed-out San Diego theatre minded.
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ hits Aussie screens on October 26, 2017. ‘Black Panther’, ‘Ant Man and the Wasp’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ all come out next year, with ‘Captain Marvel’ after that in 2019.
Get hype.
