Marvel Studios “Hall H” Panel Revelations from SDCC 2019

The reveals from this years Comic Con International: San Diego have been bountiful as you can see by clicking HERE but there was nothing that I was interested more in the revelations and announcements from the Marvel Studios panel at the hallowed “Hall H”. What I’ve done was taken the tweets as they went live on their Official Account and added them here so this post is a bit “live” for the duration. As everything is happening too fast to mull upon the ideas and announcements, I will be adding additional editorial in post. Let’s go and be aware that this postwill feature some spoilers to the outcome of “Avengers: Endgame” since that film came out back in April and if you are someone who’s waited this long it probably doesn’t matter to you anyway.

First of the announcements comes the news about the “Eternals” film with the cast being cited as well. I should stress that I was not watching the Hall H panel as I had hoped to be since I don’t think it was streaming anywhere and was just keeping pace alongside the assorted feeds I was following.

Eternals: In my vast collection of individual comic book issues, I do admit to owning at least a dozen issues that feature “The Eternals”. However, that being said, I was never much the fan of the Kirby creations and wonder how a movie about them can be made to work. Sure, Marvel Studios made “Guardians Of The Galaxy” work out to excellence with a cast of characters that were not the traditional GOTG to many of us so I have some faith. While skeptical, I am willing to let Marvel Studios work their magic.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier: This is the first series announced the for Disney+ service which I will be subscribing to without hesitation. This one picks up post “Avengers: Endgame” and will likely follow Falcon as Falcon Cap since he has the shield now after the outcome of that last film. I’m very excited about the return of Zemo and knowing that he will be sporting the famous red hood that he is known for in the comics.

Shang-Chi and the Legend Of The Ten Rings: After the reception that “Iron Fist” got on Netflix, I was surprised that they would bring Shang-Chi into the MCU. However, knowing that the ten rings mean the real Mandarin I am really intrigued. Fanboys know that Fu Manchu is the father of the legendary Kung Fu hero but I think we shall find some refitting in this film to have a closer connection to Mandarin. I am okay with this.

WandaVision: This is going to be a short series at about six episodes and I’d like to see how they deliver in it. While we “lost” (?) The Vision in “Avengers: Infinity War”, it’s my hope they somehow bring him back. He was done so well it would be a shame to be that short lived.

Loki: What will the God of Mischief be up to in this series considering he was dispatched by Thanos very early in “Avengers: Infinity War”. Considering how an alternate timeline version of him was encountered during “Avengers: Endgame”, it will likely be that ones shenanigans.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness: I’m excited about this one since they are citing it as Marvel’s first full Horror film and that only opens up worlds of possibilities. I’ve a hankering to see The Mindless Ones, Nightmare and dare I add in Mephisto? The pairing of the good doctor with the Scarlet Witch is going to be a fun ride for sure.

What If?: This is supposed to be an animated series and I am fine with that since it lets a lot of shows get done a little quicker. I always loved the comic series “What If” and there are a number of collected editions to enjoy. As a matter of fact, last October the popular True Believers line offered up a wealth of them. I discussed it HERE and who knows, perhaps your local comic shop retailer might have a few of these laying around for you to purchase still.

Hawkeye:

Thor: Love and Thunder: After the fun filled ride that “Thor: Ragnarok” was I am glad we are getting another Thor film. I’m not too sure on how much I like Natalie Portman returning since she had long been quoted as discontent with the role so I say “bye Felecia” to that. I also wasn’t 100% interested in the female Thor role despite loving some of the work that the cosplayers I ran into at NY Comic Con pulled off. I will hope for the best.

Black Widow: Of the ramifications from “Avengers: Endgame” I think I will miss Black Widow quite a bit since I liked her character. Having this film be in the past and featuring both Taskmaster as the big bad and bringing in Red Guardian to the MCU will be exciting for me. Dare I hope for additional members of the Soviet Super Soldiers? I know that’s reaching but it would be awesome.

Blade: Now I know that a lot of people are going to be mad that Blade is NOT going to be Wesley Snipes but let’s remember this is not a continuation nor really even a reboot since nothing we saw in those first movies happened in the MCU. Mahershala Ali is a terrific action and I think he will do justice to the character. It’s a good sign for the supernatural characters of the Marvel Comics and can we be hopeful for something with Werewolf By Night? So many possibilities so bring it on.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So that about sums it up and I will not add much more since I went back and edited in my thoughts on each of the features. During the panel, Kevin Feige announced that “Black Panther 2”, “Captain Marvel 2”, “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” were in development so its more likely they are part of the stuff that comes in Phase 5. Believe me I am as eager for the inclusion of these two major creations as much as anybody but I want it done right. Eventually there will be Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Galactus and so much more. Once all is said and done you can for sure leave your comments in down below in the section where we welcome that. All I can close with right now is “Make Mine Marvel Studios”!!! Thank you Stan. Thank you so very, very much.
