Fresh off a historic Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Disney just announced additional details on the panels and experiences that will be available in just one month at the Disney exclusive D23 Expo. Disney had previously announced that the live-action panel would take place on Saturday morning at the main Hall D23 (which seats about 7,000). In addition to that main panel, Marvel fans will have the opportunity to enjoy panels on Marvel Animation projects, Marvel Comics and some fantastic Avengers Endgame displays at the Marvel Studios Pavilion. It really sounds like the D23 Expo, which only occurs every other year, will be a must attend event for Marvel fans.
After the Hall H presentation, many fans have wondered what Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige could possibly have left for D23 Expo. I honestly don’t expect any more projects to be announced, but it would make sense to flesh out some of the casting and story information for upcoming projects like Black Widow and Eternals. We’ve already seen concept art for those two films in the last couple of days so it seems reasonable to expect some more information.
Check out the Marvel D23 Expo details below:
Today marks one month until D23 Expo 2019. That’s right, there’s just ONE month to go! Can you tell we can hardly wait?
Well, we’re excited (x 3000) to announce all of the awesome things Marvel is assembling at D23 Expo 2019!
Inside the Marvel Studios Pavilion on the show floor, you can step inside the action of the record-breaking Avengers: Endgame at a D23 Expo-exclusive video experience, and tour the costume gallery to see costumes worn by characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Throughout the weekend, Marvel Studios will host panels with filmmakers and artists, as well as special talent signings inside the Pavilion. You can even test your knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with daily trivia games for prizes, proving you’ll do whatever it takes.
Showcasing brand-new experiences for guests around the world to enjoy for years to come, the Disney Parks’ “Imagining Tomorrow, Today” Pavilion will give you a unique look at Tony Stark’s latest plans to recruit guest to join the Avengers in a fully immersive areas filled with action and adventure in Hong Kong, Paris, and California.
