Marvel Studios just wrapped their Comic-Con panel in Hall H.
A video is shown of various moments from the movies such as Thor in Asgard and Captain America getting the super soldier serum, then Cap waking up in the present day, Nick Fury’s first appearance; then all the Avengers are shown together (from The Avengers movie).
Now it’s the villains turn: Loki, Red Skull, Abomination etc.
Then it goes into the next batch of Phase 2 Marvel movies.
Captain America 2 and Thor 2 footage is shown.
Thanos‘ Avengers cameo is also revealed.
Now on to Guardians of the Galaxy footage…Thanos is shown on his throne…
Moderator Chris Hardwick comes on stage followed by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige and the cast of Ant-Man.
2015 focuses on The Avengers 2 and Ant-Man.
Ant-Man panel description can be found here.
The panel switches over to The Avengers 2:
No Joss Whedon because he just had knee surgery; no Scarlett Johansson because of her baby/pregnancy.
The cast of the Avengers 2 are being introduced: Robert Downey Jr. throws roses to the crowd; Renner dances as he comes out; followed by Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth..Cobie Smulders…Samuel L. Jackson… then Chris Evans.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) is next, Paul Bettany (Vision), James Spader (Ultron) and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch).
Chris Hemsworth jokes about wanting to turn his Thor into a woman (referencing the new female Thor in the comics).
Chris Evans says now that SHIELD is gone, the Avengers is all he has.
James Spader says he plays an eight-foot robot in this movie.
Elizabeth Olsen used the word “mutant” and got boo’ed (lol); then joked mutated.
A video message from Scarlett Johansson is played, as well as a message from Joss Whedon that reveals footage.
Footage is shown of the Avengers hanging out trying to lift Thor’s hammer: Tony Stark can’t do it; then Stark tries again with an Iron Man hand and fails; War Machine tries to help – still can’t; Banner can’t; Cap then movies the hammer a small amount, but then a noise distracts them. An older Iron Man suit is seen – it’s Ultron! It’s the footage previously described in a magazine article.
Various footage is then shown including Black Widow, Banner, tanks. Then the Hulkbuster armor is shown fighting against Iron Man.
The Avengers are also shown battered and bruised before Ultron with Captain America’s broken shield revealed with Tony leaning over the Avengers looking horrified.
Joss Brolin then enters!
James Gunn via video with Chris Pratt says Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be released July 28, 2017.
The first Guardians of the Galaxy logo is then shown with a “2” scribbled over it.
And that’s a wrap. No other announcements.
