'Ant-Man and the Wasp'

Fans saw new "Ant-Man and the Wasp" footage -- both concept art and pre-CGI video.

The big news (literally): Ant-Man will go giant again. And Michael Douglas wears his own Ant-Man suit. 

Hollywood legend and one-time Catwoman Michelle Pfeiffer has been cast as Janet Van Dyne, aka The Wasp. We were pretty excited about that casting, as was producer Kevin Feige:

Hannah John-Kamen of "Killjoys" is playing "The Ghost," Randall Park is playing Jimmy Woo and Laurence Fishburne will be Bill Foster. Walter Goggins is in the cast as well. 

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" will be released on July 6, 2018.

'Captain Marvel'

Fans got a glimpse of Captain Marvel in costume.

Sam Jackson is back as superspy Nick Fury and will have two eyes, which is explained by the movie being set in the early 1990s.

This will be the first appearance of the Skrulls in Marvel movies -- these are alien villains who in the comics infiltrated Earth by disguising themselves as humans.

"Captain Marvel" will be released on March 8, 2019.


Behold the official movie poster for "Thor: Ragnarok."


'Thor: Ragnarok'

Director Taika Waititi and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban and Rachel House were at the panel to talk Thor. You can read lots of quotes and see the "Ragnarok" trailer here.

Marvel also played an extended clip of "Thor: Ragnarok" that started with Thor in a chair moving through a digital tour with Willy Wonka music. There's an extended scene with the Grandmaster and Valkyrie interacting with Thor, and Thor meets a new rocky alien named Korg. A short-haired Thor, Hulk, Loki and Valkyrie team up against Blanchett's Hela, and there's a final scene with Hulk fighting a fire demon. All in a day's work for an Asgardian.

A vibrant new poster for the movie was also unveiled.

"Thor: Ragnarok" will be released on November 3, 2017.


Check out the new movie poster for "Black Panther."


'Black Panther'

Direct Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Andy Sirkis and more attended the panel.

The solo "Black Panther" movie happens after "The Avengers: Civil War," and it focuses on him learning to rule Wakanda following his father's death.

The biggest reveal is that villain Erik Killmonger (Jordan) will get his own Black Panther suit, laced with gold. Read more from the 'BlackPanther' panel here.

"Black Panther" will be released on February 16, 2018.

'Avengers: Infinity War'

Marvel showed the same 'Avengers' footage aired at D23 earlier in the month. The clip has plenty of action and involves a whole bunch of characters.

It ends with Thanos pulling a planet or moon down to the battlefield. "Sounds ridiculous, but it works," CNET correspondent Roger Cheng tweeted. "Marvel just overloaded us with lots of comic book goodness."

"Avengers: Infinity War" will be released on May 4, 2018.
