Comic Con premieres new footage from DC and Marvel

At the recent Comic Con Convention in San Diego California all the major studios unveiled major projects in the iconic Hall H.

From the new trailers for Justice League and Wonder Woman, through to further trailers and casting information from all the major super hero and science fiction films, this convention is a geeks paradise.

Over the next couple of weeks and months ahead, footage from the convention in the form of trailers and extended footage will go online. Among the highly anticipated footage was a full trailer for Wonder Woman and the first teasers for Justice League, Kong Skull Island and the prequel to the Harry Potter series Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

The Marvel panel in Hall H kicked off with surprise guests from Black Panther, including cast members Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye) and director Ryan Coogler, making their first official appearance as a cast.

Fans were treated to new footage and trailers from the upcoming Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, casting information for the upcoming Black Panther film.

For the first time, fans were introduced to the cast of Doctor Strange: Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Stephen Strange), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Mordo), Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One), Rachel McAdams (Doctor Christine Palmer), Mads Mikkelsen (Kaecilius) and Benedict Wong (Master Wong) along with director Scott Derrickson and treated to brand new never-before-seen footage from the film.

The panel was taken over by the Ravagers from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Kevin Feige announced the brand new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! attraction at Disney California Adventure, followed by a surprise appearance from returning cast members Chris Pratt (Peter Quill), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Michael Rooker (Yondu) and new additions Kurt Russell (Ego), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha) alongside director James Gunn. They treated fans to exclusive footage from the film.

Chris Hemsworth (Thor) from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok didn’t want to be left out of the Comic-Con fun despite being mid-shoot in Australia and sent a video highlighting what Thor has been up to since the last Avengers.  An in-production sizzle reel gave the audience in attendance a sense of what’s to come.

As a final surprise, Kevin Feige introduced the brand new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Brie Larson, who will be playing Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel.

Below is a taste of some of the footage released this year.
