Audiences at San Diego Comic-Con are always the lucky recipients of something special. In the case of Hall H it's usually a first look at a highly-anticipated trailer or some other footage. Sometimes studios release it online afterward and sometimes not, and in the case of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, some fans at home were upset to learn they wouldn't see the Sdcc footage. Director James Gunn explains why. Gunn has a reputation for being pretty talkative and honest with fans through his social media channels. Sometimes he uses it to confirm things while also giving fans a small look into production, other times it's to vent. But after the Marvel panel at Sdcc Gunn took to Facebook to explain why they wouldn't be sharing the footage (which reportedly featured Baby Groot brutally killing a man). "I've gotten a lot of questions about why am I, why »

Centre of the image is Taserface, played by Chris Sullivan, with Gunn posted on Facebook that: “It’s worth noting that four years ago when I was hired for the first Guardians film, I joked that I was going to make Taserface my villain. I suppose it’s no longer a joke.”

Manuel here with what is arguably the most actressy news coming out of Sdcc. The reigning Best Actress champ, one Ms Brie Larson will be joining the so-called McU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) as Captain (née Ms) Marvel.
Brie was brought out during Marvel's panel at Comic Con where she got to join the casts of Dr. Strange (which boasts Oscar winner Tilda Swintin and nominees Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor), Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 (which features Oscar nominees Bradley Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, and Glenn Close), and Black Panther (with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o). That's all a long way of saying that the McU is already stacked with Oscary talents. It's nothing new: after all, Iron Man starred 3 Oscar nominees and one winner back in 2008.
More on Brie's future after the jump

In the opening moments of Marvel Studios' massive Hall H panel at Comic-Con, Kevin Feige was asked by moderator Chris Hardwick why the studio famously skipped the convention last year. The studio president and producer stated that, "We only want to come when we have a lot of stuff to show you," which set the tone for the panel that featured the first trailer for Doctor Strange, along with sneak peeks at Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and the confirmation of Brie Larson starring in Captain Marvel. One of the biggest highlights of the panel, however, was the colorful introduction of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars, along with the jaw-dropping footage they presented.
Unfortunately, Marvel didn't release the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage quite yet, but the studio has provided us with videos featuring highlights from the panel, along with video interviews with director James Gunn »

The story will pick up two months after the first film ended. While the first was about the creation of a new family with this group, Gunn says the second is about them "being a family" which is much harder. The big additions to the cast are Pom Klementieff as Mantis and Kurt Russell, who plays Star-Lord's father - Ego the Living Planet. Speaking of their inclusion, Gunn says:
"Kurt's character is an incredibly important role... For me, he was the center - his character, even before he was around - was the center of what this movie was. We had a great camaraderie on the first film, but when Kurt and Pom started coming around, »

James Gunn and Kevin Feige were ready to treat the Hall H audience to some fun as the closing act of the Marvel panel. Gunn came out with an incredible amount of energy… stoked to be back, and with the fans. If there is one thing that you should know about Gunn, is that he is incredibly grateful for his fans. What you see is what you get. That energy and excitement is real. How do I know? I’m lucky enough to call him a friend. This isn’t a humble brag. He deserves the praise of being an honest, kind, and humble creator. (Someone hide this from him though… Shh!)
At the start of his panel, the room was stormed by Ravagers that were there to do nothing more than heckle the crowd… as well as the panel. Sean Gunn, who has done an incredible job of wearing various hats throughout Guardians, »

Last month, star Chris Pratt wrapped production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, announcing in a new video from the set that both he and director James Gunn would be coming to Comic-Con this year. The director went on to confirm through social media that the first footage would be shown during Marvel Studios' Hall H panel that took place tonight, and sure enough, the filmmaker is a man of his word and did indeed showcase footage from this sequel. What fans didn't expect is that this footage confirmed a long-running rumor, that Kurt Russell is in fact portraying Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father, Ego.

Kevin Feige presided over a boisterous Marvel Studios panel that brought new trailers from Doctor Strange and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, as well as footage from the sets of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.
At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige unveiled a new company logo and introduced Chadwick Boseman and his fellow Black Panther cast members alongside director Ryan Coogler ahead of an early 2017 production start.
While that project is expected to strike a blow for diversity at a point in modern history that could not seem timelier, Marvel referenced another welcome development when Feige brought its Captain Marvel star Brie Larson on to the stage for a group shot.
That was the final act of the presentation and nothing more was revealed about Marvel’s first female-led superhero adaptation, which will open in theatres on March 8, 2019. Warner Bros has stolen a march in the gender wars, however, and will »
