Every other year, Disney holds the fabled D23 Expo, a special convention aimed at the biggest of fans where the studio showcases upcoming content and celebrates its successes. This year’s D23 is slated to happen this August from the 23rd to the 25th. According to the press release:
The Walt Disney Studios will present a behind-the-scenes look at its blockbuster collection of upcoming films on Saturday, August 24, at 10 a.m. Fans will see what’s on the drawing board for the acclaimed filmmakers at Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios and get a peek at the exciting slate of live-action projects, from Disney to Marvel Studios to Star Wars. As always, attendees will be treated to exclusive footage, special guest appearances, and more!
There’s no telling whether this year’s D23 will serve as the official unveiling of the MCU’s upcoming slate or just a general behind-the-scenes showcase. San Diego Comic-Con will be held this coming July and with no Warner Brothers/DC presentation happening in the fabled Hall H, Marvel Studios may be eyeing that one Saturday in SDCC to get everyone’s attention on them.
As what to expect in this year’s D23 Expo, 2017’s D23 saw Marvel Studios unveil the first look at the Black Order for Avengers: Infinity War and give audiences the very first sneak-peak at the film’s trailer. On the other hand, Marvel Studios’ SDCC 2017 presentation gave fans the first confirmation and look at the Skrulls in Captain Marvel, the announcement that Michelle Pfeiffer had been cast as Wasp, and early footage from Black Panther and Ant-Man & the Wasp.
Whatever the case is, one thing’s for sure and that’s the guarantee that we’ll learn definitive things about the MCU’s future within the next 2 months.
