When it comes to Marvel Studios we never know what to expect when it comes to SDCC. Some years they come with a bevy of casting announcements, schedules, and info and others they just come to talk about their more immediate releases. This year they blessed us non-SDCC attendees with…. new logos! Go crazy!
But wait! There’s more:
The cast of Black Panther was revealed with Lupita Nyong’o playing the villain Nakia, Danai Gurira playing the Black Panther’s body guard and possible love interest Okoye, and Michael B. Jordan playing the film’s big bad, Erik Killmonger. It’s a great cast and with Ryan Coogler directing, it’s sure to be a great movie. We’ll have you covered with a Comic-to-Film Primer for Black Panther as more details are revealed in the coming months.
On the Guardians of the Galaxy side of things, Kurt Russell was revealed to be Ego, the Living Planet! It’s crazy, it’s weird, and I love it!
The Vulture has been confirmed as one of the Spider-Man: Homecoming villains!
