The 5 Biggest Moments from Marvel's Spectacular Comic-Con Panel

The 5 Biggest Moments from Marvel's Spectacular Comic-Con Panel

Jul 23, 2016

Once again Marvel Studios dropped all kinds of nerdgasms on the Comic-Con crowd with an epic panel that featured Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and, finally, the announcement we were all waiting for -- Brie Larson will star as Captain Marvel. (Oh, and they also revealed a new logo, seen above)

Here were the 5 biggest moments

1. Brie Larson is announced as the star of Captain Marvel

Right at the end of the panel as all of the Marvel casts were brought on stage for one last group photo, Marvel chief Kevin Feige revealed that Brie Larson is the new Captain Marvel. We managed to record the moment that rocked Hall H -- check it out below.



2. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuts the first footage

The second Guardians of the Galaxy debuted two clips -- one was an extended clip featuring baby Groot, Rocket Raccoon and Yondu (Michael Rooker) planning their escape from the Ravagers ship. This moment was pretty tremendous, mainly because baby Groot absolutely stole the show by being vulnerable, adorable, hilarious and badass all in the span of a couple minutes.

The second clip was a teaser trailer that jumped between a bunch of scenes, including one where the Guardians battle a vicious looking monster. The teaser ends with the introduction of Kurt Russell's character, Ego, and the reveal that he is indeed playing Star-Lord's dad. 


Bonus: Guardians of the Galaxy will also get its own Disney ride next summer

It's called Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, and here's some concept art.


3. The first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming is revealed

Along with the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming -- featuring a very John Hughes-inspired montage that takes us through a typical day at Peter Parker's high school -- Marvel also dropped this piece of wicked-looking concept art teasing a huge battle between Spidey and Vulture.

Tom Holland was on hand along with Jon Watts, who described the film as a "straight-up high school movie." Our favorite part was probably when Parker, bored in class, pulls up YouTube video of his fight with Ant-Man during Captain America: Civil War.


4. Thor: Ragnarok sizzle reel teases epic battle between Hulk and Thor

They dropped two completely different pieces of video for Thor: Ragnarok, which just started production.

The first was a hilarious mockumentary that tracked Thor and Bruce Banner, revealing what they were doing during the events of Captain America: Civil War. It was all done in the style of The Office, with Thor crashing with some lowly office worker named Darryl as he tries to piece together what the Infinity Stones are and complains about Tony Stark not calling him to assist in his argument with Captain America.

Next up was a sizzle reel for the actual film, which shot out a ton of concept art including an incredible money shot featuring what looked like an armored Hulk battling Thor inside an area.


5. New Doctor Strange trailer debuts

Finally, Doctor Strange was introduced in a pretty wild way, complete with smoke and lasers and then Benedict Cumberbatch magically appearing on stage.

In addition to bringing out the entire cast and showing an extended clip, they also debuted this brand new trailer.


Bonus: The awesome cast of Black Panther came out to say hey to the crowd. 

Lastly, Black Panther hasn't started filming yet, but the entire cast came out to say hi to the Hall H crowd, officially announcing who all was playing who: Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as Okoye, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, and Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger.

Here's a pic of the cast on stage.
