SDCC: News Tidbits From The Marvel Studios Panel

The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) covered a lot from its upcoming slate of films, some of which probably won't be shown to us mere mortals until much later. We did get to see the official trailer to Thor: Ragnarok though, so that's pretty cool. Here's a couple of news tidbits, mostly courtesy of Screen Rant that was discussed in that panel.

Ant-Man and the Wasp was up first. Supposedly a new logo was shown for the movie, plus some footage and animatics. Some casting was announced/confirmed most notably Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne (aka. original Wasp) and Laurence Fishburne will take the role of Dr. Bill Foster (aka. Goliath). Hannah Dean Kamen's role has been identified as Ghost (usually an Iron Man villain and male in the comics), while Walton Goggins will be Sonny Burch who was the chairman of Cross Technologies and associate of Obadiah Stane (another Iron Man link?) in the comics.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will fly onto screens July 6, 2018.

Captain Marvel will be set in the 1990s and will feature an appearance by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) before he got his eyepatch. The panel also revealed that Captain Marvel will be facing off against the shape-shifting alien Skrulls (take that Fox!). The panel also featured some concept art of Captain Marvel battling the Skrulls:





Here's another piece of concept art showing Marvel's uniform:




Captain Marvel soars onto the big screen May 3, 2019.

The panel also covered Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, but the footage from that was not released. After the panel, two posters were posted to the internet. One from Thor: Ragnarok:




And a new one for Black Panther:
