Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige continued his presentation at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con with a whole load more exciting news!
After the Doctor Strange trailer came the premiere of the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, which not only reportedly had a lighthearted, preppy John Hughes/high school feel, but also revealed the villain to be (as rumoured) The Vulture.
Next up, director James Gunn exploded onto the stage with the Ravagers and the full cast (some in costume) from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, including Michael Rooker (now sporting a head fin much closer to the character’s original comic book design) and the one and only Kurt Russell!
Feige also announced that Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout is heading for Disneyland, as a brand new ride at the theme parks in 2017.
Finally came the news everyone was hoping for: Brie Larson (who won the Academy Award for Best Actress, for Room) has been cast as Captain Marvel, the company’s major space-bound hero, who will finally feature in her first Marvel movie (and Marvel’s first female fronted film) in July, 2018!
That’s all from San Diego and Marvel, but what an amazing day for news.
