A recent visit to Marvel Studios headquarters by several press outlets has revealed numerous reported details about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - including the first footage from Black Panther, a first look at Captain Marvel, and more.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the set visit kicked off with a look at what was identified as raw, uncorrected or produced footage from Black Panther, including a coronation scene for T'Challa, Lupita Nyong'o's Nakia taking down some bad guys, and Ulysses Klaue storming a casino and confronting Martin Freeman's Everett K. Ross. In that scene, Klaue reportedly bore what resembled a machine on his arm, which looked like it would be enhanced with CGI to appear somewhat like his comic book cyborg arm.
They also saw new suit designs for Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man & The Wasp. Director Peyton Reed said that the new suit was "version 3.0," and that it was "very specific to the needs of the story."
He also spoke about the more updated look, saying "The suits are one thing on the comic page. They are fantastic. When you actually have to make it seem realistic in the real world, in three dimensions, you've got to buy it. It's got to be credible."
Also reportedly shown was concept art for the film which revealed Paul Rudd's Scott Lang taking more advantage of the Giant-Man technology he revealed in Captain America: Civil War.
The tour also reportedly included the first images of Bri Larson's Captain Marvel costume, though no specific description was given, as well as Avengers: Infinity War's Thanos design which includes bare arms.
Finally, some new footage from Thor: Ragnarok was shown, which included Thor bonding with the Planet Hulk characters Korg and Miek and trying to escape an infinite prison that breaks the laws of physics.
It was also reportedly revealed that the role of the rock-like creature Korg was performed in motion capture by director Taika Waititi, who has often appeared in his own films. Waititi is not the first Marvel director to play a role in his own film; that honor goes to Jon Favreau, who played Happy Hogan in the Iron Man franchise.
Thor: Ragnarok is due out in theaters November 3, followed by Black Panther on February 16, 2018. After that is Avengers: Infinity War on May 4, 2018, and then Ant-Man & The Wasp on July 6, 2018. Finally, Captain Marvel is due out in theaters March 8, 2019.
