Marvel Studios once again dominated the Comic-Con in San Diego with a slew of news. The big news came with the casting of CAPTAIN MARVEL, the debut of a new DOCTOR STRANGE trailer, new logos for BLACK PANTHER, THOR: RAGNAROK and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2. Plus concept art for SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING and a new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY attraction at Disney California Adventure. Finally, a new fanfare and logo for the studio itself has been revealed.
Casting: Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Brie Larson has been cast as the lead role of Carol Danvers in CAPTAIN MARVEL, confirming a long-standing rumour about her casting. Very little is known about the film, except that Larson’s casting would lean towards the more recent comic book arcs from the likes of Kelly Sue DeConnick. She will make her debut in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War in 2018, with her solo movie to follow in 2019 following the second half of Infinity War.
It also seem to have been confirmed that Kurt Russell’s role has been confirmed as Peter Quill’s father, and is playing (wait for it)…Ego the Living Planet. James Gunn goes into great detail on his Facebook page as to what form this will take.
Trailer: Doctor Strange
The brand new second trailer for DOCTOR STRANGE has arrived, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Benjamin Bratt with Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. It adds a little more substance to the previous trippy trailer.

There’s some of the first SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING concept art coming out, showing Spidey (played by Tom Holland) in the film battling old foe the Vulture.
In a video presented by the excellently adorned Joe Rohde from Disney Parks’ Imagineering, concept art detailing the conversion of Disney California Adventure’s Tower of Terror into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Coming in summer 2017, it will give a Marvel spin to a fan-favourite attraction at the park.
Logos: Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Throughout the presentation, Marvel unveiled the official logos for each of the forthcoming films that didn’t present any other new information. Plus, the studio also unveiled its new fanfare and logo, due to debut in front of the next Marvel Studios feature films.
