Every Major Disney Update Out Of D23,
Disney has all the best stuff and they know it. Which is why this year’s D23 was extra exciting. Not only does the studio have the latest Pixar and a number of other animated films to look forward to, but Disney also boasts two of the absolute biggest movies to be hitting theaters in less than a year: Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Avengers: Infinity War. Both had a strong showing at the fan expo this past weekend, but they were just two of the movies that made big announcements.
The Mouse House is one of the biggest entertainment companies in the world, with dozens of projects currently in the works in the hopes of earning all your money. Disney went hard this year and there were tons of big ticket movies dropping everything from new trailers to casting announcements. It’s understandable if some of these flew under your radar, which is why we’ve collected all the biggest reveals from D23 in no particular order.
Marvel opted to skip Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther and just went straight for the jugular. After bringing out what was roughly a quarter of the cast of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios premiered the first ever footage for the mega huge blockbuster. Word on the street is, it was pretty freaking awesome, showing the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, and the Avengers coming together to battle Thanos — who throws an entire planet (or moon) at them! Unfortunately, this may have been D23 exclusive footage only, but there’s always Comic-Con.
Thanos won’t be the only one the heroes of the MCU have to contend with when Avengers: Infinity War hits. The Black Order, Thanos’ elite group of followers, have been rumored to appear in Infinity War, and Marvel confirmed the news at D23. The group could be seen in statue form on the show floor, in addition to a replica of the Infinity Gauntlet. Much like how Gamora and Nebula are Thanos’ “daughters,” the Black Order has been reworked in the film to be Thanos’ other “children.”
D23 was absolutely packed, showcasing some of the biggest movies to be hitting the screen in the next year. Keep track of all the major updates right here.
