SDCC '16: What Marvel Studios Brought To It

DC Films showed off their films in the morning of Saturday for this year's Comic Con and Marvel Studios showed their ones in the afternoon to close up the Hall H bonanza. They showed many things namely footage from some of their upcoming films like Guardians Vol.2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Doctor Strange but they also confirmed and announced a few thins as well. So here's a breakdown of their Hall H event with newly made logos for the respective films.

James Gunn, the film's director, brought out some footage for the film that gives us an idea of what the film is going to be whilst sharing some new information about the film. Here's a breakdown of the footage shown:

First was clip features Yondu, Rocket, and Baby Groot (who looks like a toddler version of the twig at the end of Guardians) imprisoned by the Ravagers.
•The Ravagers mistake Groot for a harmless twig that is “too cute” to kill. Yondu and Rocket then proceed to have Groot fetch them Yondu’s head fin (which controls his remote arrow) but Groot routinely fetches the wrong thing (including a severed finger and an office desk).
•Once Groot succeeds in reuniting Yondu with his fin, Yondu uses the arrow to kill the ravagers (a LOT of Ravegers) and escape the ship.
•Last up, Groot gets revenge (imagine a running and screaming six inch tall Groot in a jumpsuit) on a guard that wanted to poke his eye out earlier in the clip.

Then came a trailer which opens with the Guardians on top of an alien skyscraper – awaiting an inter-dimensional beast they have been hired to kill. Gamora is holding an alien rifle – which surprises Quill (who assumes swords are her go-to weapon). Zamora then chastises Quill for thinking she’d try to take-on an inter-dimensional alien with a sword. The scene ends with the alien creature appearing in the sky.
•Throughout the trailer, Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” is played.
The rest of the trailer is a sizzle reel of fun shots (and hat tips to the original film). Each of the characters get a quick spotlight moment:
•Star-Lord is shown gearing up for battle (his helmet re-materializing over his face) and blasting off.
•Gamora is shown leaping at that inter-dimensial creature and stabbing it with… her sword (maybe the rifle wasn’t the best choice after all).
•Rocket is shown once again spinning in circles firing guns – this time with Groot on his shoulder.
•Drax is shown standing on an alien planet looking up and saying: “Screw Spaceships” (that’s a metaphor) and then, in a different shot, stabbing an organic looking wall repeatedly.
•New Guardian, Mantis, is introduced to the team.
•Ego (Kurt Russell’s character) is revealed as Star-Lord’s father. Explaining that, before Peter Quill was born, he took human form and met Quill’s mother. Drax questions if Ego’s human form includes a penis, to which Ego replies: “Yes, Drax. I do have a penis. A pretty good one too.”

There was other tidbits announced like Sylvester Stallone being in film in an undisclosed role and Elizabeth Debicki will play Ayesha.

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
Marvel showed off some footage for Homecoming as well and it goes as follows:
Set to Joan Jett's Bad Reputation, we see yearbook photos of all the MCU, using actual images from the actors. There's tons of great jokes. Black Widow's yearbook is in Russian. Cap's is from the 40's. It's cut like a trailer, going through Peter Parker's schedule. He's in science class watching video from the Civil War airport fight instead of paying attention. It's cut like a trailer, going through Peter Parker's schedule. He's in science class watching video from the Civil War airport fight instead of paying attention. In gym, girls are playing F, Marry Kill with the Avengers. "What about Spider-Man?" one asks. We see Zendaya's character make fun of Peter and a friend for oggling girls. At one point, Peter says he needs to leave a library discussion (Martin Starr looks to be the teacher). "Where are you going?" Zendaya asks with a serious face. "What are you hiding?" Lots of footage of Spidey on the back of a truck and hiding under a table by sticking to it. "Just kidding," says Zendaya. "I don't really care."

They released the above concept art and the synopsis down below.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Marvel Studios' "Captain: Civil War," begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging superhero in "Spider-Man: Homecoming."

Kevin Feige said that producer Amy Pascal is the reason it was possible to have Spidey in the MCU. Jon Watts explained that Spider-Man is "a straight-up high school movie" and called it the ground level of the MCU.

Tom Holland reprises the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man he first played in Captain America: Civil War, and is joined by Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Michael Keaton as the Vulture, Logan Marshall-Green as a secondary villain, Kenneth Choi as Peter’s high school Principal, and Zendaya as a character by the name of Michelle. The film also stars Donald Glover, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Angourie Rice, Jacob Batalon, Tyne Daly, and Bokeem Woodbine.
Marvel confirmed that the film will start production in 2017 and debuted a new logo, but also added some new additions to the cast. Chadwick Boseman will play T'Challa, the titular role,
Michael B. Jordan, who will play Erik Killmonger (a villain in the source material), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia (a former member of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, now an agent of Killmonger, and Danai Gurira as Okoye (a member of the Dora Milaje, the wives-in-training for the King of Wakanda).
For Thor: Ragnarok  there wasn't footage as the had only started filming about a week ago, however they did show off a mockumentary of what Thor while The Avengers had their "Civil War" the footage goes as follows:

In the Thor clip, we see a mini documentary about how Thor, stressed from everything he's been doing with the Avengers, has moved to New Zealand and has moved in with a normal guy named Darryl as his roommate. One scene has him sitting with Bruce Banner at a cafe. Banner is shocked that Thor hasn't hear about everything that's going on between Cap and Iron Man. Thor seems a little miffed that Iron Man hasn't called him, but admits that he doesn't have a phone. "Tell him to send me a raven!" he says. gives a tour of his room which has "Keep Out Darryl" written in runes on his door. He has made a bed for Mjolinir and has a crudely made chart on the wall that says "What are infinity stones?" He points to a drawing of Thanos and calls him a "purple guy". Thor says he hates standing up. One scene has Thor reading to a class of children and showing drawing of the Avengers. One kid recognizes Vision and Thor says, "I'm actually surprised you knew who that was!"
For Doctor Strange they showed a new trailer which you can see down below along with a new poster too.
Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artefacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.

For Captain Marvel they confirmed that actress Brie Larson will be playing Carol Danvers who will most likely be making an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War PI before her solo film.
