What we learned about Marvel movies and Netflix shows from Comic-Con | News | Geek.com

There was a time a few months ago when some people (myself among them) were debating if Marvel Studios even needed to attend San Diego Comic-Con, let alone attempt to close out Saturday with a bang. Then, a couple stars and directors of upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe films confirmed they’d have a presence and the conversation began to switch to just what Marvel could do in Hall H to make things exciting this year.

Since Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel has made a habit of breaking their own news, casting and otherwise, about upcoming films through their own channels like Marvel.com. To the person not inside Hall H while Marvel Studios was putting on their show, it didn’t seem like a lot of tantalizing information was released. Inside Hall H, several attendees claimed Marvel had “won” Comic-Con again. Much of this probably came from the exclusive footage and appearances from Benedict Cumberbatch and full costume members of the Ravagers from Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2.

Meanwhile, the Netflix side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe took the opposite approach and included teaser videos with almost all of their announcements.

Oh, yeah, and most of the stuff Geek.com predicted about Thor: Ragnarok ended up getting confirmed or hinted at. Let’s check out what we learned about these Marvel properties in Comic Con 2016.

Daredevil S3

The first new news to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was just a brief mention for the Netflix series Daredevil: the show has officially been confirmed for a third season. No mention as to when that season would be placed in the line-up of Netflix shows, and considering all the other stuff the Netflix panel announced, chances are it is a long way off. But it is happening, for those of you who thought season two ending on a cliffhanger and without introducing Bullseye was the end of the series run.

Luke Cage

Luke Cage drops on Netflix in about two months, so the panel showed off some exclusive footage beyond the teaser trailer that was released to the masses.

The first clip was an extension of the teaser that appears on Netflix already, but an extension of the scene where Luke is looking for “Cottonmouth’s guns.” He eventually extracts the information by threatening to throw a goon out a window and also picks up his hoodie there (likely the one he’s wearing in the teaser, placing this clip earlier than the trailer building assault).

The second clip showed Cottonmouth (Cornell Stokes) wrecking a bar with a baseball bat before Black Mariah comes in and talks him down. Things aren’t going well for the crime boss and they have some sort of confrontation that ends when they are informed the cops are outside.

The third clip featured Misty Knight seducing Luke Cage and making out with him, though the clip cut out before the couple had sex. Knight is a detective, so it’s unclear if this is actually a romance or if she’s gathering intelligence on Harlem’s newest hero for hire.

The fourth Luke Cage clip was another one featuring Cornell Stokes who beats a man in front of a portrait of the Notorious B.I.G. and says that everyone wants to be king. Luke Cage as a series looks like it’s going to be about Cage’s return to Harlem only to find his criminal past kicked up by Stokes and Black Mariah. We’ll probably also get some flashbacks to his life before he had powers and the actual moment when he got them. Pretty standard first season Marvel/Netflix stuff.

Iron Fist

Speaking of, the Iron First trailer shows off some origin stuff. In the comics, Danny Rand’s father was trying to rediscover the magical city of K’un-Lun when a fall killed him and his wife. Danny was taken in by the people of K’un-Lun and he was taught the ways of the Iron Fist. It looks like the show is going to forgo the father angle and have Danny rescued after a plane crash back when there were still clickwheel iPods. Presumably, Danny’s coming back to New York to reclaim his Rand birthright. But something’s going to go wrong when he tries to retake his company from the people who are running it in his absence. Looks like Iron Fist is going to be a little like Arrow on the CW as far as storytelling structure goes.

The Defenders

Nirvana tells us nothing, we already knew the team members involved (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist), and the Stick voiceover suggests Daredevil’s master will be in it. Since this is coming before Daredevil season three, we can only assume that Charlie Cox’s character is the one who assembles the Defenders to help fight back against whatever a revived Elektra/Black Sky is. Or we can do Shadowland, right? Shadowland anyone?

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange mostly came to debut a new trailer, which can also be seen online. The most puzzling part of which is the montage of magic at the climax. In that montage there’s a shot of Strange and another person engaging in fisticuffs in the street while crumbling buildings rebuild themselves around them. The reason this shot is more interesting than the kaleidoscope themed magic elsewhere in the trailer is that the Time Stone, one of the all-important Infinity Stones, is still to be introduced in the MCU.

There are only so many movies before the two-part Avengers Infinity War saga (once called Infinity Wars Part 1 & 2, now titles pending) where Thanos will presumably unite all the stones into that glove we saw him put on in a post-credits scene last year. Most of the magic in the Doctor Strange trailer have had a fractured glass or kaleidoscope design, that one shot is straight-up time kookiness. Make of that what you will.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 has already wrapped production, so James Gunn and Chris Pratt were comfortable sharing that the second film takes place a couple of months after the first and Star-Lord is a bit more famous this time around.

Characters were revealed or confirmed, one of particular interest: Elizabeth Debicki is playing Ayesha, otherwise known as “Her.” She’s a being that was created to be the perfect specimen. Comic book fans will know her to be another attempt at an Adam Warlock-like being, which could indicate ol’ Warlock hasn’t been excised from the Infinity canon quite yet.

There was a whole scene shown where Yondu (Michael Rooker with a full fin on his head this time), Rocket, and Tiny Groot are thrown into a jail cell by Ravagers and told they’ll be turned over to the Kree. Tiny Groot breaks free of his tiny cage and fetches Yondu’s arrow of death (after getting underwear and a severed finger in misunderstanding). Once they have the arrow, there’s a montage set to “Come a Little Bit Closer”) where the three break through and kill a bunch of Ravagers (Tiny Groot grows branch hands and throws one over a railing, apparently!).

Then there was an extended montage set to Fleetwood Mac’s “Break the Chain” that saw the Guardians facing off against some sort of space tentacle monster, Star-Lord teasing Rocket about being a “trash panda,” Rocket approaching “Her,” and two casting reveals. The first was a shot of Sylvester Stallone as a Ravager (between him, Tessa Thompson in Thor, and Ryan Coogler directing Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther, it’s obvious Marvel loved Creed) and the second was a clip revealing that Kurt Russell is playing Ego the Living Planet! The clip involved confirming that Ego can take human form and, yes, that includes a penis. It’s very Zeus, I like it.

As to suggestions that revealing Star-Lord’s planet-father was too big a spoiler to let loose before the movie was released, Gunn responded on Facebook:

If we lived in a perfect world, I wouldn’t tell you ANYTHING before you walked in to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I wouldn’t tell you Groot was now Baby Groot, I wouldn’t tell you Mantis was in the movie, I wouldn’t say that Ayesha and Taserface are our antagonists, that Yondu and Nebula have incredibly important roles in the film, nor would I tell you that Quill’s father is Ego The Living Planet. However, the world is imperfect.”

Thor: Ragnarok

Director Taika Waititi didn’t have much time on the Thor: Ragnarok set before having to present something at Comic-Con, that’s why he made a short comedy film about Thor living in Australia during Civil War, trying to figure out who Thanos is, having his calls screened by the Avengers, and being cursed with a normal roommate. Apparently this short isn’t going to be released online anytime soon (damn!), but pieces of it have been popping up from the production.

Thor is investigating who is after the infinity stones.

The Hall H audience was also shown a sizzle reel of concept art, costume tests, and animatics for a bunch of things in the movie. Not a lot of them were surprising to us, though, as Geek.com called Thor getting a haircut and how The Hulk is going to appear in gladiator mode. There was also a shot of Hela looking like… evil Cate Blanchett in a headdress. But the headdress is there!

Black Panther

Black Panther won’t start filming until early next year, but some things can be divined from casting. The panel confirmed Michael B. Jordan as villain Erik Killmonger, added The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira as Okoye (head of the Dora Milaje, Wakanda’s elite guard), and revealed Lupita Nyong’o to be Nakia (also a Dora Milaje). It was Birth Movies Death that first spotted the connection between Nakia and Killmonger from the comics:

Nakia in the comics isn’t just a member of the Dora Milaje. She is a member of the Dora Milaje who is in love with T’Challa but cannot marry him, and she ends up kicked out of the security force after she tries to kill Panther’s girlfriend. She ends up crossing paths with none other than Killmonger, who saves her life and renames her “Malice.” Under that identity she becomes a villain who uses a toxic herb that makes men obsessed with and obedient to her.

Chadwick Boseman fighting off Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o is going to be one of the most attractive showdowns in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and this franchise has Chris Hemsworth fighting Tom Hiddleston in it.

Captain Marvel

Capping of the Marvel Studios Hall H panel was the announcement that Brie Larson, long rumored to be among the top pics to be Captain Marvel in March 2019, is actually Captain Marvel. The movie is going to be written by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and is probably still being drafted. What we can expect with Larson’s early casting is a cameo of some sort before her solo appearance. Her character’s background would fit right in with the Kree that apparently show up in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, but that doesn’t make it a sure thing, just “still possible.”
