Marvel Studios held its big panel Saturday at the Disney D23 Expo which included lots of content and reveals.
However, some MCU fans are upset as they didn’t feel the reveals were big enough which is probably the fault of all the various “scoopers” out there who said “this and that” was supposed to be announced and happen, but nothing was.
Maybe Kevin Feige didn’t like all the leaks or maybe the scoopers just got things wrong.
I will say I am surprised nothing was mentioned about Deadpool 3.
That said, check out all the Marvel D23 Expo announcements below which consists of Black Panther 2, Secret Invasion, Werewolf By Night, Ironheart, The Marvels, Loki Season 2, Daredevil, and more.
Marvel D23 Expo announcements:
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
As Black Panther 2 gets released next month, the D23 Expo included new footage shown off with director Ryan Coogler onstage with Angela Bassett (Queen Ramonda), Tenoch Huerta (Namor), Winston Dukes (M’Baku), and Letitia Wright (Shuri).
According to what was said, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will see the rest of the world attempt to capitalise on Wakanda’s resources when they are at their weakest (via Twitter).

They are joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir, Emilia Clarke, and Olivia Colman. The crossover event series showcases a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years.
The series gets released in 2023 on Disney Plus.
Probably the biggest disappointment from Marvel was the lack of any big Fantastic Four announcements as the last couple of weeks saw tons of casting rumors.
All Marvel announced at the D23 Expo for Fantastic Four is that Matt Shakman is directing, which was something everybody already knew.
Fantastic Four gets released November 8, 2024.
Armor Wars was missing from July’s San Diego Comic-Con which led to some fans thinking it might have been canceled.
However, that is not the case as Marvel announced at D23 Expo that Don Cheadle is returning for Armor Wars on Disney Plus and revealed a new logo (above).
“What happens if Tony Stark’s tech falls into the wrong hands?” questions the series.
