What to expect from D23 Expo’s biggest panel
While we won’t be able to watch them live, we’ll still receive a ton of information about the biggest panes of Expo D23 2022 via social media and other channels.
Let’s start with the Hall H panel at Marvel Studios. While it won’t be live, Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans can expect plenty of content and announcements from this 90-minute demo.
First, we’re sure to hear more details about the last few MCU Phase 4 projects. That should include a new trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, as well as official Disney Plus release dates for the TV specials Night of the Werewolf and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. The latter duo still doesn’t have a release date, so expect Marvel to confirm when they’ll arrive on its streaming service.
Meanwhile, we can expect some big News about Marvel’s Phase 5 and Phase 6 production. MCU insiders have suggested we’ll get a trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Secret Invasion, which will be the first MCU project to release in 2023. Marvel might reveal Secret Invasion’s official release date, if…? Season 2, Echo and Loki Season 2 are also on its panel.
We may also receive official casting news for Blade, Captain America: The New World Order, and Team Thunder – given the rumors of who will be part of the antihero group’s lineup in recent days, The latter of the trio is particularly interesting.
Speaking of the cast, the biggest reveal over the weekend will likely be reserved for Marvel’s Fantastic Four reboot, which will be the first superhero movie to roll out of the studio’s Phase 6 plans. There’s been a lot of speculation over who will be cast as the iconic quartet over the past week, so we’d be surprised if Marvel didn’t confirm which actors will play Mister Fantastic, Storm Sue, Human Torch, and Thing.

Finally, Marvel may announce several other Phase 6 projects. The studio has only announced three films so far, so we may learn about a few others that will be part of its Phase 6 plans. Don’t quote us, though – Marvel has plenty of other movies and TV shows to talk about at D23 Expo, so it wouldn’t be surprising if no new Phase 6 projects were revealed.
Elsewhere, we can expect to hear more details about the next animated feature from Disney Animation Studios, Strange World. At Pixar, we’re sure to find official plot and casting details for the 27th Pixar film, Elemental, as well as a trailer.
As for Star Wars, Lucasfilm will likely give us some news about its upcoming release. Star Wars Celebration 2022 is only in late May, so it’s unlikely we’ll see too many announcements. However, we should get more info on upcoming Star Wars movies and TV shows, like Andor, which launches on Disney Plus on September 21. We can also learn more about Taika Waititi’s untitled Star Wars movie, The Bad Batch season 2, Skeleton Crew and The Squire.
But if Lucasfilm really wanted to make a splash, it would be a mixed bag if they showed us footage from The Mandalorian season 3 and Ahsoka’s live-action series. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with the duo’s official release date.
In addition to movie- and TV-based content, Disney and the Marvel Game Show should have plenty of news for gamers to get excited about. From Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Midnight Sun, to Marvel’s Wolverine and Lucasfilm/Machine Games’ Indiana Jones titles, there’s a lot to be excited about in terms of Disney-owned assets. place.
