Hot on the heels of the formal commencement of filming for Captain America: Civil War, Disney has announced where we might see the first preview footage.

Disney has announced the line-up of presentations for this year's D23 Expo, to be held August 14 through 16 at the Anaheim Convention Center. This three-day event encompasses Disney's film, television, theme parks and other offerings, and Marvel is key among those offerings. The presentations this year is borrowing from the comic convention playbook, dubbing the room for these presentationas "Hall D23."

On Saturday morning, Walt Disney Studios will lead a presentation of previews for upcoming films from Marvel, Lucasfilm and Disney. The two listed films being previewed are Alice Through The Looking Glass and The Jungle Book, but more films - and "some very special guests" are promised. A seperate presentation for Disney Animation and Pixar will be held Friday afternoon.

At the last D23 Expo, in 2013, Marvel presented footage and the full casts from the then-upcoming Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In addition to that, Marvel Comics announced the launch of its Disney Kingdoms line of tie-in comics with the Walt Disney Parks.

D23 Expo will take place in August, after the release of Ant-Man. Marvel has a prodigious amount of movies planned, with the next two being Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016, and Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016. Marvel news coming out of D23 Expo 2015 may not be limited to that however, as there's many open questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward, from the actors to play Spider-Man and Captain Marvel to details on the numerous open director's chairs for its upcoming movies.

This also takes place one month after Comic-Con International: San Diego. For the past few years, Marvel Studios has traditionally hosted a large presentation during a Satuday Hall H panel. Given Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's (unconfirmed) Facebook statement in March that Marvel wouldn't be going to Comic-Con this year, it's possible Marvel's annual summer presentation will occur at their own D23 event.
