Disney is not only the classics you know and love as the company now owns Marvel, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Avatar, Pixar and other beloved franchises, so we got expect plenty of updates about upcoming movies, shows, video games and theme park rides set in those universes.
Although there were plenty of updates about upcoming movies and shows, a lot of high-profile content was ignored. There was no news of Mahershala Ali or his turn as “Blade,” in spite of an announcement that Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio were returning to the MCU for a “Daredevil” series. Nor was there anything about “Guardians of the Galaxy 3” or anything regarding “Deadpool 3” yet.
Here are some of the announcements that were made. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler showed an exclusive scene, revealing that the international community is after the county’s supply of vibranium in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. The Dora Milaje — Wakanda’s all-female special forces unit — aren’t gonna let it go easy though. The movie hits theatres on Nov. 11.
Secret Invasion got its first trailer, revealing a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Nick Fury and Jim Rhodes have to do something about it when the series hits Disney Plus in 2023.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania kicks off Phase 5 of the MCU on Feb. 17, 2023, and an exclusive look at the movie showed Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne working with her parents Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, along Scott’s daughter Cassie Lang to explore the Quantum Realm. We saw new MCU big bad Kang holding Cassie hostage and trying to force Scott to steal something for him. Also, Bill Murray’s character appeared briefly.
