Guys, I think the Universe is listening. At least the Marvel Universe is because early today I was discussing Marvel at D23 Expo & what might be announced this summer.
I honestly cannot wait for this trip!
I might have (ok, I definitely did) squeal a bit when I later heard this news about Marvel at D23 Expo.
Marvel will be on the D23 Expo floor again with the Marvel Studios Pavilion. It promises to be an epic experience for the Marvel Cinematic?Universe fans attending the Expo from July 14-16, 2017.
Marvel at D23 Expo: The Movies
Movie props and costumes will be on display from upcoming films?Thor: Ragnarok,?Black Panther,?and more.
By the way, have you seen the Thor: Ragnarok trailer? It’s worth a 2nd (or 50th) look!
Is it November yet?!
Black Panther?has a release date of February 16, 2018, and will be a perfect addition to my birthday month! T’Challa on any month is A-Ok by me, to be honest.
Fans will get the chance to meet with Marvel Studios? filmmakers, development team, and talent. Exclusive artwork will be given away daily, along with other surprises. Details on talent appearances and special signings will be made available on the D23 Expo app.
Yeah, to say this could be the best D23 Expo ever is not an understatement!
Though I have to say, 2015’s Live Action Panel with Anthony Mackie (swoon) and Chris Evans (double, no, triple swoon) was pretty sweet! This year has a big shield to live up to.
Marvel at D23 Expo: The Games
For the first time ever, gamers can get their hands on consoles with games featuring the Marvel?Super Heroes. Fans will get a chance to play as an Avenger, a Guardian, and Spiderman.
My husband,?the gamer in the family, is jealous and rethinking his vacation choices. (Not too late, dear!)

Marvel at D23 Expo: The Panels
The Live Action Panel was one of my favorites last year, and I have high hopes for some sneak peek clips and special guests this year. I have no idea what the travel time is from Asgard, but I hope D23 is on Thor’s summer plans!
Mark this on your calendar!
Marvel will present incredible panels during D23 Expo, including the fan-favorite Cup o? Joe on Friday, July 14, at 1:15 p.m. in the D23 Expo Arena, featuring Chief Creative Officer of Marvel, Joe Quesada, in a no-holds-barred panel of everything Marvel.
That same day at 6 p.m. on Stage 28, Marvel Animation presents a surprise-filled panel of sneak peeks, special guests, exclusive footage, and big announcements about the future of Marvel Animation on Stage 28. Details will be available on the D23 Expo app.
