It wouldn’t be San Diego Comic-Con without Marvel doing a Hall H panel to showcase what lies ahead. As Phase 3 is winding down, it’s time to bring out the heavy hitters. Marvel already had a panel for Thor: Ragnarok where they unveiled the latest trailer for the movie. Secondly, there was a panel for Captain Marvel where they revealed that the film will take place in the 1990s with not only a two eyed Nick Fury, but also the Skrulls will make their MCU debut (“Secret Wars” for Phase 4’s conclusion: fingers crossed). Finally, they had a panel for Ant-Man and the Wasp where they revealed that Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne will be joining as Janet Van Dyne and Dr. Bill Foster (does this mean that we’re getting Black Goliath?!?). But of course, everyone is hyped for the heavy hitters: Black Panther and of course, Infinity War.
While the footage has not yet been released online, plenty of outlets who attended the Hall H panel has been more than happy to endless talk about what they saw.
As per Comicbook.com:
“There’s a scene which opens in a club. A lawyer enters and T’Challa is tracking him with Lupita and Danai. Everett tries to stop Klaw from coming in with so many people. Law then asks if Everett brought the Diamonds. He hands a briefcase over and Klaw trades it for Virbranium. Gupta wants to move in on them but Danai ties to be patient. She fights a man and flips him over some railing. Law starts shooting and a fight breaks out. Dana and T’Challa kick major butt. T’Challa beats a ton of men and jumps up to the higher level to catch Klaw. The villain pulls out a huge weapon and fires.”
The crowd at Hall H gave Black Panther a standing ovation.

“‘We are arriving,’ Mantis said to the Guardians. Teenage Groot in a seat. They describe this place as ‘dangerous.’ The body of Thor lands on their windshield. His hair is short. Rocket is startled. Mantis wakes him up using her powers. Thor is startled. All of the Guardians look at him, prompting him to ask who they are. The ship zips through the cosmos. Elsewhere, Wanda dodges some white energy, and it breaks a truck. Somewhere else, Loki stands in ruin, presenting the Tesseract to someone. Peter’s Spider-Sense takes off as he rides a bus. Tony prepares for battle. He is in space with the Guardians.
“‘Fun really isn’t something one considers when balancing the universe,’ Thanos said. ‘This does put a smile on my face.’ Gamora looks on, terrified. The Guardians observe ruin in many places across Earth and the cosmos. Thanos warps into this new world. Star-Lord battles him. Strange battles him. Spider-man, in his new suit, battles him. Winter Soldier battles on Earth. Wakanda readies to defend their territory. Cap steps out of the shadows, bearded, with longer hair. Hulkbuster fights.
“Peter looks up at Tony, laying down with his mask off, fighting tears with Tony’s hand behind his head, and says, ‘I’m sorry, Tony.’
“Black Panther fights an Outrider, appearing as it did Infinity. Thor’s head is squeezed by Thanos. Thanos pummels Iron Man in a fight. The Guardians are all defeated. Thanos has assembled the Infinity Gauntlet. He throws a moon at an entire planet.”
This sounds similar to the footage that was shown at D23 a week or so ago. Either way, it sounds more than exciting. Hopefully, the footage will be released online soon enough. These movies are going to be explosive!
