Comic-Con 2022: Marvel Studios Hall H Live Panel Blog
We’re seated in the Great Hall to begin the Marvel Studios Hall H live blog. Keep refreshing this page for updates as of 5:00 PM PT, and forgive any misspellings for now. . Let’s do this!
We begin with a sizzle reel narrated by Stan Lee welcoming us to Comic-Con. This is followed by Miss Minutes welcoming us to the “end of time” panel and introducing moderator Ash Crossan and Kevin Feige.
Feige reminds us of phase 4 and says wakanda forever is the last film of phase 4.
Phase 5 will be Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Secret Invasion, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Echo, Loki season 2, The Marvels, Blade, Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Captain America: New World Order18 episodes of Daredevil: Born Again. Then, on July 26, 2024: Love at first sight ends phase 5.
The cast of She-Hulk: Lawyer then go out. Jamila Jameel says that jealousy thrills Titania, as well as a desperate need for attention. “She’s extremely annoying, and I learned that from myself.” Tatiana Maslany talks about the big cameos we already know. The show can explore different sides of existing and more serious characters.
Cobie Smulders comes out for Secret Invasion. She calls it a gripping thriller, and it will be a guessing game about who is a Skrull and who isn’t. They showed an exclusive clip, with lots of action of men in suits, Nick Fury without an eye patch and scruffy beard warning Rhodey, Everett Ross and others that he knows what the Skrulls want. But it ends before he can tell what it is. No huge revelations.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed introduces Kathryn Newton, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. Reed says we’re finally spending time in the Quantum Realm and meeting a lot of new characters. Scott, per Reed, is “pretty happy with himself and his role in saving the universe.” We will also see the fragility of Hope, says Lilly. Newton says Cassie “is becoming what she’s meant to be, just like we all are.”
They showed an exclusive clip from Hall H. It begins with Scott going on a book tour for his autobiography, then getting a call that Cassie has been arrested. There’s a tense family dinner, with Hank and Janet mocking Scott. Then something emerges from the Quantum Realm, sucking them all in. There’s a whole civilization there, apparently led by Bill Murray? But also MODOK! And finally Kang – whose costume resembles Mysterio, without a helmet – green armor and cape. But we also see security guards that look like classic Kangs with blue faceplates.
James Gunn comes out to say that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 This is the end of this story for this team. Then he showed the first trailer – a beefier adult Groot, an origin for Rocket (cute furry baby), Adam Warlock. the Gamora variant leading her own Ravagers, and Chukwudi Iwuji looking villainous in space armor. Maria Bakalova will be Cosmo the space dog.
The cast comes out – it’s the first time they’ve seen it, but they don’t reveal much. Mantis can show combat skills this time. Adam Warlock was almost in the last movie, but Gunn is now glad he wasn’t, because “Will was only 11” and he’s perfect for it now. Bakalova says Cosmo brings love and strength.
Chukwudi Iwuji is the High Evolutionary and he arrives at Hall H in costume. He gives a character talk about how he wants to turn us into something less genetically objectionable. We inspire it by being so inferior. His goal is to create the perfect species, and he can’t wait to dissect us all.
The Fantastic Four has a release date: November 8, 2024. Ir is launching phase 6, which has several empty slots.
Phase 6 will end with Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. This will end the multiverse saga.
A large drum ensemble, led by singer Baba Maal, plays Wakanda-style music for us to follow with wakanda forever. Now Ryan Coogler comes out and thanks them. Kudos to the late Chadwick Boseman and his “huge hands”.
Coogler describes the film as a roller coaster that goes to new corners of the MCU. It brings out Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasuma and Winston Duke. Next up are new cast members, including Tenoch Huerta as Namor and Dominique Thorne as Ironheart.
“I come from the neighborhood. Without inclusion, I wouldn’t be here,” says Huerta. He thanks everyone in Spanish. “By the way, Namor is amazing.” It’s time to unveil the trailer. It looks like we’ll be getting a new Panther, and the body type looks male, but that doesn’t reveal who it is. Namor and Attuma look like tough opponents for Wakanda. The panel concluded by showing it again.
And that’s a wrap, folks! Continuation to D-23.
