Hiddlestone says he will always be grateful to Hall H for his moment in costume as Loki here, in the film four years have passed and Loke has “directed most of his time to narcissistic self indulgence. He’s still the God of mischief and what his role in the coming of Ragnarok you will see.”

A bunch of Thor Ragnarol footage is shown including Thor arriving on Sakar, the Collector sizing him up, Thor meeting a warm up Gladiator and then meeting Hulk. This is followe by some random footage including many shot of the Hulk Thor Lokia no Valkyrie teaming up against Blanchett’s Hela. A lot of humor more of. GotG vibe to the film.
And now Black Panther
Chadwick Boseman. Lupita Nyongo, Mochael BJordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Forrest Whitaker Andy Serkis and Winston Duke and Letitia Wright.
Coogler notes how excited he is to be back in Hall H. “History is important to me and to
t’churi is Tchalla little sister she designs all the technology. She was a dream role to play inspirTional and a strong black woman.”
Gurira notes that she had to undergo more weapon training even though she’s a sword badass on Walking Dead. And that. She loves that Wakanda is the most technologically advanced. Advanced country on earth and it’s on the continent.”
Whittaker talks about his mentor character and Kaluuya in an amazing Cockney accent, talks about his younger brother role.
Lupita Nyngo talks about her character and Andy Serkis is excited to wear pants for the role.
Winston Duke is at his First Comic Con!!!! He says the love and reception is breathtaking. He is the beloved leader of the Jabari tribe the best tribe in Wakanda. How was best about role was how human and loyal he was to his people.”
And now footage. Pants peeing excitement!
The Black Panther scenes showcase Gurira and Nyongo as well as BP himself – the vibe is much more of a James Bond movie. And the action looks different suspect Coogler may have directed his own action scenes?
The presentation ends with The Avengers Inifnity WR footGe which is grim and desperate. Lots of sad Star Lord.
