Last year, many fans were disappointed that Marvel Studios decided not to bring anything new to San Diego Comic Con. Fortunately for every comics nerd and movie enthusiast who made the trek out to San Diego this year, Marvel Studios made it up to us tenfold, bringing cast from five upcoming films, clips from four of them, and a giant casting announcement.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and panel host extraordinaire Chris Hardwick started the panel off with a bang, introducing Black Pantherdirector Ryan Coogler and star Chadwick Boseman. Following Boseman, Coogler introduced Lupita Nyong’o as Dora Milaje warrior Nakia, Michael B. Jordan as supervillain Erik Killmonger, and Danai Gurira as Dora Milaje leader Okoye. The cast briefly discussed bringing the world of Wakanda to the silver screen, expressing an excitement and anticipation for fans to get a glimpse into Black Panther’s world. Black Panther has not started filming yet and will be in theaters February 16, 2018.
Then Feige told the audience that Thor: Ragnarok, the third installment in the Thor franchise, is currently filming in New Zealand, but they brought footage of what Thor was doing during the events of the last Marvel Studios film, Captain America: Civil War. The clip showed Thor spending some down time getting to know the common people in Australia, living with a roommate, and trying to communicate with Steve Rogers and Tony Stark via email. Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner made a cameo, having brunch with Thor and fending off Stark’s invitation to join his side in Civil War. The clip was rife with quirky comedy, a staple of director Taika Waititi, and showcased star Chris Hemsworth’s comedic chops. Thor: Ragnarok will be in theaters November 3, 2017.
Next, Marvel Studios got fans into the mystic mood by pumping out smoke from the walls and center of the 6500 capacity Hall H and projecting mystic symbols onto the smoke and screens. This provided a truly awesome, immersive introduction of Dr. Strange star, Benedict Cumberbatch, who appeared on stage in a flash of light, as if by magic. Cumberbatch was then joined by co-stars Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, and Mads Mikkelsen, as well as director Scott Derrickson.
McAdams described her character, Christine Palmer, as Strange’s connection to the “real world” and revealed that their characters are co-workers at the hospital who have something of a history together. Swinton addressed her casting as the Ancient One, explaining the idea that the Ancient One is merely a title that anyone could hold. Ejiofor described his character, Baron Karl Mordo, as a mentor figure to Strange. Mordo has been through the same training Strange goes through in the film, and he provides help and support. Benedict Wong, who plays Wong in the film, explained that his version of the character is much different than the subservient caricature that appears in early Dr. Strange comics. The film’s Wong will be more of a drill sergeant and trainer to Strange. Mikkelsen opened up about his character, Kaecilius, revealing that he doesn’t see him as a villain as much as a man with strong beliefs.
Derrickson then introduced a clip from the film, as well as the second trailer for Dr. Strange. The clip was a short scene depicting the first meeting of Stephen Strange and the Ancient One, showing that Strange is on a quest to heal his injured hands, seeking out experimental treatments that could not be performed under government oversight. He underestimates the Ancient One, mistaking an older man for the Ancient One before meeting Swinton’s character. Strange then gets a crash course in the world of the spirit, separated from his body and flying through a trippy rollercoaster of dimensions before crash landing back at the feet of the Ancient One and begging to be taught. Dr. Strange will be in theaters November 4, 2016.
Feige then introduced another character that made his debut in Civil War, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. Holland was joined by Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts, and co-stars Laura Harrier, Zendaya, Tony Revolori, and Jacob Batalon. The young cast expressed great excitement for the film, which had only begun filming ten days prior, and Watts promised that Spider-Man: Homecoming will primarily be a high school movie. Watts also introduced a teaser trailer that followed Peter Parker through a normal school day, giving a glimpse at Harrier’s, Batalon’s and Zendaya’s characters, as well as a sneak peak at the film’s villain, the Vulture. The clip was very bright and stylized, promising a fun movie with light-hearted laughs, vibrant characters, and a menacing villain. Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently filming and will be in theaters July 7, 2017.
Finally, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was invited to the stage, followed by a number of fully costumed Ravagers, darting through the audience aisles and taking over the stage with lots of jeering and banter. The Ravagers, including Kraglin played by James’ brother Sean Gunn, filled in the seats on stage, pretending to be Guardians stars and causing a general commotion until Gunn presented a clip that showed just what happens to the Ravagers in upcoming sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. In the clip, the Ravagers have captured Yondu, Rocket, and baby Groot. Yondu sends the adorable and tiny Groot to retrieve his new head fin, a weapon that will help them escape, to hilarious results. Finally, the fin is retrieved and Yondu uses his whistle-controlled dart to take out every single Ravager as he, Rocket and Groot walk themselves out of their prison cell.
Gunn then introduced Guardians stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and Karen Gillan, as well as new cast members Pom Klementieff and Elizabeth Debicki. The cast was joined by the Ravagers’ leader himself, Michael Rooker, dressed in full costume as Yondu, as well as another new cast member, Kurt Russell. Pratt stated that Star-Lord will be dealing with the results of saving the galaxy, trying to become a more mature leader of his team, but failing. Saldana said Gamora becomes resigned to her fate of dealing with the immaturity of her teammates and Bautista said Drax will only become more confused at the metaphors flying around him. Gillan, who attended the first Guardians panel three years ago with a shaved head, was happy to be able to keep her hair this time around because she thought she looked like a long baby with no hair. Klementieff revealed that her character Mantis spent most of her life with Russell’s character and Debicki introduced her character Ayesha as the leader of an alien race that enlists the Guardians’ help to less than favorable results.
Additionally, Feige made the announcement that Disney’s California Adventure theme park would be getting a Guardians of the Galaxy themed ride. The current Tower of Terror attraction will be converted into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout, which will open in 2017.
Finally, Gunn introduced the first trailer for Guardians: Vol 2, which promises another fun space adventure romp. In the trailer, the easy banter between the Guardians team is showcased as they go on missions together and meet Debicki’s Ayesha. Nebula and Mantis are shown very briefly, but the trailer reveals Kurt Russell’s character as Ego the Living Planet, who introduces himself to Star-Lord as his father. The trailer evokes the same irreverent joy as the first Guardians film and promises to bring the action and the laughs just as hard the second time around. Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 will be in theaters May 5, 2017.
Before the end of the panel, Feige invited all of the Marvel Studios cast back out onto stage for one huge group photo, including the newest addition to the family, Brie Larson, who was announced to portray Captain Marvel. With that final announcement, the panel came to an end and fans were given baseball caps with Marvel Studios’ new logo embroidered on them.

As we rapidly approach the season two finale, our Agent Carter cast of characters are going through some major changes–some good, some very not good. Let’s check in with our friends to see how they fared during this week’s two-episode double feature.
Jarvis finds out that even though Ana made it through the gunshot wound inflicted by Whitney Frost, she won’t be able to have children. James D’Arcy’s performance here is really phenomenal. Jarvis normally has such an innocent upbeatness to him, that seeing his reaction to his wife’s injuries is truly sobering. You have to remember that this is taking place in the 1940’s–today, not being able to have children is not such a horrible thing for most. But in the forties, having a family was not just the absolute norm, but the expectation. For Jarvis to find out he and his wife can never have a family of their own, it would be devastating. It made me think of a fatherly Jarvis raising Tony Stark for the absent and eccentric Howard, knowing that he could never have a son of his own. (Yes, I teared up a bit, don’t judge me.)
Our dear sweet Mr. Jarvis becomes obsessed with revenge, to the point that he shoots Whitney Frost point-blank in the chest. Damn Jarv, you straight up murdered Whitney Frost! Or rather, you would have if she wasn’t a space goo filled supervillain. But she is, so instead he gets himself and Peggy captured. Don’t worry, they escape, but they do have a blow out shout fest in the middle of the desert than ends in Peggy dropping some major truth bombs. Later, Jarvis’ other leading lady drops some truth on him, too. Both scenes are really moving, and they both serve to remind Jarvis that Peggy is not actually a butt-kicking machine, as much as she may seem it. She has been through hell and, as Ana asks him, who does she really have on her side? “Only you.” Excuse me as I make BFF bracelets for them and cry.
Jack Thompson, a.k.a. Agent Chad Michael Murray, goes through quite the rollercoaster this week as well. He’s bad–tries to blackmail Peggy like a fool–then he’s okay–turns against his mentor Vernon Masters–then he’s good, I guess–helps Sousa and Samberly out of being killed by Vernon’s goons–then bad, maybe–sacrifices Vernon for his own seat on the Counsel of Nine–then okay again–he was lying, maybe? Like I said, a rollercoaster. I’m really holding out hope that he was serious about wanting Vernon’s seat on the Counsel. This would be a major shift for Thompson, from a simpering lapdog to a conniving, ambitious, actual bad guy. Honestly, I feel like this is the most interesting thing that could happen with this character, and it would allow for the continued threat of corruption within the SSR. Plus Chad Michael Murray makes a mean bad guy. But we’ll see.
Dr. Wilkes contracts a little case of Stockholm Syndrome and, while in the capture of Whitney Frost, decides he needs more zero matter too. He holds a shotgun up to Peggy’s head for goodness sake. Plus, apparently he and Whitney both hear this voice?? From the zero matter rift?? …Which is not crazy or freaky at all. Wilkes also sucks up a whole bunch of new zero matter during the nuclear test that Whitney finally makes happen, which kind of turns him into a walking black goo time bomb. One thing I really appreciated from Wilkes this week was that, when Peggy tried to play off his crazy as just a symptom of the zero matter, he took responsibility for his actions–it wasn’t the zero matter, it was all him. Peggy, the dear, still does everything she can to save him, but he makes his own choice again. Episode nine ends as he walks toward Whitney Frost and explodes. I’m not sure he’ll be able to survive that kamikaze attack on Frost, but I guess we’ll have to see if he returns for the finale next week. If not, at least he tried to redeem himself and take out Whitney before she could cause any more harm (though seeing as there’s one more episode left, I doubt he succeeded).
This week’s episodes saw poor Peggy’s tough exterior slowly breaking and gave us a glimpse at just how
much all of this craziness is affecting her. Her face really showed how much it hurt to have Jarvis remind her that everyone around her dies, and when Wilkes turns his gun on her she can’t hide the feeling of betrayal. Haley Atwell really has a gift for imbuing this strong, stoic lady with vulnerability and emotion when it counts. Also, at the beginning of episode nine, we get to see inside Peggy’s head while she’s knocked out–who would have guessed she’d have a musical number about her love triangle rattling around in there? As fun and flashy as the number is, it serves to show that Peggy is really torn about Wilkes and Sousa, even though she doesn’t show it–mostly because there are more pressing matters to attend to (a supervillain, for example).
Finally, let’s address the rosey pink elephant in the room–and no, I don’t mean Rose, though she was wonderful this week. Peggy and Sousa totally had like three significant, almost-kiss moments this week, and we still got no actual kiss. I’m growing old waiting for this relationship to become a relationship.
Other highlights of this week’s episodes: Ken Marino continuing to steal every scene as Manfredi, the mobster who loves his women beautiful and powerful; Samberly getting on Sousa’s every single last nerve; Peggy trying to corral all of the ridiculous men in her life into not killing themselves; and of course getting to see both Lyndsy Fonseca’s Angie and Peggy’s brother Michael in Peggy’s dream sequence. Also, props to Sousa for summarizing Whitney Frost in one succinct phrase: you know, the “lady that kills people with black space goo.”
Next week is the season two finale so I expect we’ll get resolutions to our major plotlines. I’m hoping to see Whitney Frost go full blown Madame Masque, and there better be a freaking Peggy-Sousa kiss. “Do as Peggy says” and don’t miss the final episode, next Tuesday on ABC!

GUYS. GUYS. Okay, I know I’m a pretty excitable person, but you need to know that both DURING and AFTER the third episode of “Heroes Reborn”, I stood up on my couch and yelled nonsensical sounds in utter excitement. On a scale from “can” to “can’t”, I am at a “CANNOT EVEN”, okay? So let’s talk about what went down this week while I flail uncontrollably.
We last left Miko fighting off the guards in the lobby of Yamagato Tower, after her magical video-game-transporting sword somehow dropped her off there. While she’s doing pretty well for herself, it starts to look like she’s bitten off a bit more than she can chew. Unfortunately for Miko, a guy named Harris (Clé Bennett) shows up and basically takes out our Katana Girl in mere seconds, relieving her of her sword. He means business.
Harris delivers the sword and information about Miko to his boss: Erica Kravid (Rya Kihlstedt), the CEO of Renautas. She’s a bit busy trying to get their new E.P.I.C. system up and running, but is all like, “Um, this is totally Hiro’s sword!” which confirms what we were all guessing when the sword first appeared last week. She also questions how Miko could be the daughter of Hachiro Otomo, as if that’s not possible or something. VERY interesting, no?
So Harris questions Miko, who is holed up in a conference room (and calmly making origami dragons, no less). He wants to know where she got the sword. She tells him that she got it from her father, and he questions her further: does she have her father’s powers? Is she his “best work”? Does she remember the accident or “the death”? Miko, and the rest of us, are perplexed by his questioning, so it’s a good thing that before Harris can start getting violent to get some answers, Ren shows up to save Miko. He came to the Tower looking for her and, after seeing Erica and Harris with her sword in the lobby, snuck into the offices to find her. Miko hacks off Harris’ arm as a parting gift and peaces out with Ren, but wait! With a bunch of gross noises and some CGI, not only does Harris’ arm grow back, but a WHOLE OTHER HARRIS grows out of his severed arm. I don’t know whether to be grossed out or impressed (I’m leaning more towards grossed out, to be honest). Nevertheless, Ren fills Miko in on some information about Renautas and Erica, who has left Japan for Midian, Colorado. Miko insists that they follow Erica to America to get her sword back. (Similar to how a certain OTHER evo ended up in Times Square several years back, right?)
Oh, Carlos, honey. I know you’re trying, but this week did just NOT go well for you, did it? Guy’s got absolutely ZERO skills at dealing with grieving children (I’m talking about Jose, obviously- AND Carlos is still in the dark about his nephew’s powers), but I suppose he’s a bit better at the whole “vengeance on the dude who had my brother killed” thing. But not by much. See, he’s been following Captain Dearing (the bad cop who seems to be in charge of the super secret evo-capturing sector in the police force) around town. Dearing (played by Dylan Bruce, by the way, from “Orphan Black”) and the others in his Bad Cop Crew are capturing evo’s and trying to get information about the “Underground Railroad” that Oscar and the priest had been running. Thankfully, it looks like no one’s given up any information, but Dearing tags one of the evo’s they captured before chucking her through a window- don’t worry, she can fly- so they hope to be lead right to the source of the railroad.
Since Carlos is the WORST secret agent, he is almost discovered while he watches all of this happen, but the priest shows up and pulls his awesome smoke magic and makes them both disappear. Carlos is all like, “Gross, dude, don’t!” and doesn’t want his help or his “better purpose” talk. He wants to kill the people that killed his brother and that’s IT. But apparently, the priest’s little nudge goes a long way– Carlos continues to follow Dearing to the evo’s secret hideout and is able to warn them to leave before they can be captured. Oh, and also, he’s DRESSED AS EL VENGADOR! So when Dearing gets there, we’re all expecting Carlos to beat this guy to a pulp, right? Well, I mean, he does his best, but it turns out that Dearing himself is an evo with super strength. Poor Carlos gets his ass kicked. Like, badly. Like, he has to jump out of third story window to escape. HOWEVER, though it’s clear that his powers are not of the fighting nature, NORMAL PEOPLE can’t jump out a window from a high floor and just walk away from it (even if he WAS limping), so… does Carlos have powers himself? Will they help him get better at life in general?
OKAY, SO GET THIS.
Our favorite murderous couple is driving away from the Primatech site in Odessa in HRG’s car. Joanne is all psyched, right, because they have information on every evo in existence and can go around killing everybody and life will be great. But Luke is looking super unenthusiastic about the whole thing. It doesn’t help when he goes to shut off the radio and the entire car dies, leaving the two to walk to their next destination.
So when they arrive at a diner to rest and eat, Luke is feeling pretty blue and is deep in “I miss my son” mode. He wonders to Joanne why they’re still on this killing thing. He wants to go home. She’s not having it (she’s basically gleeful at the thought of all the deaths they”re about to cause) so he changes tactics: maybe they should go west and see the ocean. Joanne’s all like, “Shush, honey, eat your steak and maybe have a drink because you’re harshing my vibe” so Luke shuts up and goes to eat. But hang on a minute: as he cuts into his steak, the knife he’s holding glows read under his touch and sears the his steak. He drops everything and starts to freak out a bit. Joanne, not the most attentive of wives, notices nothing.
After stealing another car, Luke and Joanne stop at a motel. Luke’s not doing so hot- actually, he’s doing SUPER DANGEROUSLY hot, since he seems to be developing EVO POWERS HOLY CRAP. He hides from Joanne and basically lights up like a Christmas tree that happens to be on fire. His glowiness seems to be coming from the sun or something, but his powers are also vaguely reminiscent of Ted Sprague, the exploding man from the first “Heroes” series. What’s THAT about, right?
Since Luke and Joanne (let’s be honest, we all know it was Joanne) shot Quentin as they stole HRG’s car, the two men are making a pit stop at a hospital to get Quentin all stitched up. But a random doctor at the hospital remembers HRG from June 13th and calls security on him.
HRG can’t remember being at the hospital at all, so he naturally holds a security guard at gunpoint and looks through their footage of June 13th to see what he was up to. He finds quite a few things that he doesn’t remember: hanging out with Molly Walker and seeing Claire in the morgue. Not only that, but his timeline jumps around like crazy which makes him think that Hiro Nakamura (from the original “Heroes” series) has something to do with it.
After HRG and Quentin escape the hospital, they both wonder- with her healing/regeneration powers, how could Claire die? But they have bigger things to worry about, like saving Molly Walker from Renautas.
They arrive at Renautas’ headquarters just as Erica Kravid and her team are about to launch their EPIC system. Molly had been taken there by the girl who hustled her in the last episode- the girl’s name is Taylor, and she’s Erica’s daughter. Strangely, her evo boyfriend (the guy with the telekinesis powers that almost killed Molly) wasn’t allowed to come with them. Molly tried to plead with Taylor and tell her that Renautas was going to kill her boyfriend, but Taylor’s like, “Whatevs, my mom the boss” and doesn’t listen.
After a BRILLIANT distraction plan by HRG and Quentin, they finally get to Molly and try to get her to escape with them. Molly takes one look at HRG and refuses, telling them, “There’s too much at risk”. What the-? Naturally, she’s captured by one of the Harris’, gets strapped to a chair, and then gets plugged into the EPIC system (by the neck! How Matrix-y of them!). It looks pretty painful.
Meanwhile, Erica begins the program launch of EPIC- using some nifty glasses, Renautas is now able to locate every evo on the planet, regardless of distance. While HRG and Quentin watch from their hiding spot, they realize that they again have to try and rescue Molly and shut down the EPIC system before Renautas can capture all the evo’s.
Oh, man, Tommy is making bad decisions again. He tries to tell his mom that he’s going to Brad’s to play video games one night, but she’s all like, “Dude, you just did push-ups AFTER you got dressed, that foolishness is not for Brad.” She knows he’s totally going to a party and is pissed that he lied about it, so she wants him to stay home. Tommy gets all angry-teenager on her and lets her know that he’s been getting strange texts from someone, warning him about stuff. His mom is considerably freaked about this new development and demands he stay home, but Tommy uses his powers to whomph past his mom and leave. OH SNAP, SOMEONE’S GONNA BE GROUNDED ‘TIL THEY’RE FORTY.
At the house party, little baby teenagers are drinking (what happened to the days of letting 30-year-olds play high schoolers? “Heroes”, you’re making me feel ancient). Apparently, Tommy helped Brad get the booze with his powers. This mess has trouble written all over it: Brad knows too much and is an idiot. Though Tommy is enjoying the friendship and normalcy, he’s also sort-of ignoring Emily. She gets up to leave and Tommy finally pays attention to her. Not only that, he wants to walk her home and Emily’s all for it. Uh-oh, Brad, your girl is getting better boyfriend material elsewhere!
Meanwhile, the Mysterious Penny-Suitcase Guy is, as always, following and watching Tommy. As he sits in his car outside of the party, Tommy’s mom suddenly shows up and threatens him with a gun to his neck. She asks if he’s “the Protector” and wants to know how long he’s been following them. The man tells her that he promised to protect Tommy and won’t break that promise, since the world will need him soon. She tells him, and whoever he’s working for, to stay away from them. She sees Tommy and makes him leave with her, totally you-know-what-blocking her son and Emily.
As they drive away, Tommy asks who she was talking to and his mom refuses to answer. He notices that she looks how she always looks when they’re about to move and tells her that he wants to stay in town. But when they approach a stop light that’s red in all directions, his mom freaks and drives away, only to have something plow into them from the side. The car flips around with Tommy and his mom still inside.
Malina, a young girl, is trying to control some weird storm in the sky. There is an invisible woman with her, guiding her. While Malina doesn’t think she’s ready, the invisible lady doesn’t care and tells her, “The world will need your powers soon.” The invisible lady urges Malina to hurry while Harris and some other men in the new EPIC glasses from Renautas search for them. But what is Malina trying to control? What’s up with the storm?
The whole exchange between HRG and the security guard about zooming in on the security video, like they’re somehow able to do in EVERY OTHER SHOW, made me very happy.
This episode’s best line goes to Quentin, of course: “Oh, MAN. Now that we’ve made it to the Deathstar on time, what do we do now?”
What did YOU think of Chapter Three, nerds? Got any theories about where the story is going? Let us know in the comments below!
