San Diego Comic-Con 2016 RESULTS

So another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone.  If you recall, last week I posted my expectations for the MCU presentations at Comic-Con.  Let’s see how I did!  In some ways I was spot-on, but there were a few places I missed.

Last year Marvel Studios didn’t even go to Comic-Con, so there really wasn’t a ton of stuff to report.  This year, I think they were trying to make up for lost time, because they gave us a lot of new stuff to talk about!

Marvel Studios

Doctor Strange


  • We did get a new trailer (here)
  • Also a new poster and costumes for Strange, Mordo, and the Ancient One
  • Scott Derrickson (director) also talked a little about the Marvel Cinematic “Multiverse” which Doctor Strange is introducing

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2


  • They did show concept art of the new team of Guardians, including Mantis, Nebula, and Yondu
  • They also showed concept art of the new Ravagers
  • They also announced that Kurt Russell will be playing Ego the Living Planet… who is somehow Star Lord’s father!
  • Elizabeth Debicki was also confirmed as Ayesha

Spider-Man Homecoming


  • We got a new synopsis for the movie (a short one) and they announced the cast with their characters, though there are still a few mysteries left
  • In terms of villains, they showed concept art of Michael Keaton as the Vulture (who has a suit which uses turbines similar to those on the original helicarrier), and there is also a strong rumor that both Tinkerer and Shocker will also appear
  • Tony Revolori was confirmed to be playing Flash Thompson.  At some point, I really hope he becomes Agent Venom


Thor: Ragnarok

  • They showed pieces of Hulk’s Gladiator armor, seemingly confirming the “Planet Hulk” inspiration of this movie
  • They also confirmed both Surtur and Fenris to appear
  • It also got a new logo

Captain Marvel

  • Brie Larson was officially announced as Carol Danvers!
  • Also, new logo

Marvel ABC

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


  • Not only did they confirm the Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider for season 4, but they showed off the car and announced the actor—Gabriel Luna
  • AoS also got a new poster for season 4


  • Unfortunately, they did not announce a new Marvel ABC series or show anything for the announced ones or say anything about Cloak and Dagger

Marvel Netflix

Luke Cage


  • New poster and trailer (here)

Iron Fist


  • New logo and trailer (here), which confirm the series for next year
  • Rosario Dawson was also semi-confirmed to appear in the series
  • Joe Quesada also talked about the series and noted that there are more villains in this series than any previous one

The Defenders


  • New trailer (here) confirming the series for next year


  • Daredevil season 3 was announced!



  • DC released trailers for all their upcoming movies (Wonder Woman and Justice League)
  • They also showed off costumes and/or concept art for the characters
  • Wonder Woman also got a poster
  • Ben Affleck was confirmed to direct the solo Batman movie


This isn’t a very detailed list—I probably missed a ton of stuff—but these are my takeaways from Comic-Con.  Of all the Marvel stuff, I think the TV announcements are the most exciting for me, though the Captain Marvel announcement is also really high up there.

One thing is for sure:  this is a great time to be a fan of comic book movies and TV shows!

Which announcement are you most excited about?  What were you really hoping to see and didn’t?  Let me know in the comments!
