All Marvel announcements & trailers from D23 Expo 2022
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Starting with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, exclusive footage for the next November feature was unveiled.

Similarly, the new clip also showed Tenoch Huerta’s Namor confronting Winston Duke’s M’Baku.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania also included exclusive footage from the 2023 film. It will involve a new adventure in the Quantum Realm. Not only does the clip feature Bill Murray’s character, who assumed Janet van Dyne was dead, but it also suggests that Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror will be attempting to recruit Scott Lang for a robbery in the Quantum Realm itself. It was also stated that the next Ant-Man film will be a direct sequel to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. It will be released in 2025.
A new logo for Marvel’s upcoming series Ironheart was revealed. It was reported that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler would serve as executive producer. With the series branching out from Ironheart‘s anticipated role in Wakanda Forever.
It will also star Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams. Exclusive footage for the series centered on her studies at MIT was also unveiled, as was the announcement that Anthony Ramos will play the mythical villain known as The Hood.
Marvel Studios also revealed the first trailer for Secret Invasion. The new series will star Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, and Emilia Clarke and Olivia Colman in brand new MCU roles.
With Fury’s return to Earth, the former director of SHIELD will be caught up in a major alien plot involving the shapeshifting aliens known as Skrulls. Secret Invasion will premiere in early 2023.
Werewolf by Night
Marvel fans received their first glimpse at Werewolf by Night. It will be the first Marvel Studios Special Presentation coming to Disney+ on October 7th. Thanks to the release of a brand-new trailer.
The series will feature Gael Garcia Bernal as Jack Russel’s Werewolf by Night, and Laura Donnelly as the monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone. Werewolf by Night, directed by Michael Giacchino, will be a really unique MCU production as a black-and-white throwback horror thriller.
Loki Season 2
D23 also highlighted the Loki season 2 cast. It also introduced MCU’s newbie Ke Huy Quan, who will portray a TVA agent. Kang the Conqueror will also have a big involvement in the series following the season 1 finale episode, in which Kang’s control of the TVA was exposed.
With exclusive footage from Loki season 2 showing the God of Mischief being sent across numerous branch universes, the series may prove to be more multiversal lunacy than Doctor Strange 2. Loki Season 2 will be released in the summer of 2023.
Along with a new logo, War Machine actor Don Cheadle confirmed that Armor Wars is still taking place in the MCU. Cheadle also confirmed that Armor Wars would take place immediately following the events of the Secret Invasion. Armor Wars will begin filming in 2023.
Exclusive footage from Marvel’s Echo was also released at D23, revealing the return of Vincent D’onofrio’s Kingpin. While Maya Lopez shot him in the head at the end of Hawkeye, Wilson Fisk appears to be alive and well. Echo, which recently concluded filming, is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2023.
Unfortunately, not much was disclosed about Fantastic Four 2025. While many expected the cast to be disclosed, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige could only confirm that WandaVision‘s Matt Shakman will helm the picture. Hopefully, the cast for Marvel’s First Family will be unveiled shortly.
Captain America: New World Order
Along with a new logo for Captain America: New World Order, starring Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, it was confirmed that Tim Blake Nelson will return to the MCU as The Leader, as first teased in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk.
Carl Lumbly will also reprise his role as Isiah Bradley, the first black Super-Soldier introduced in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, alongside Danny Ramierez’s Joaquin Torres, who will take over as the MCU’s new Falcon. The upcoming Captain America film will also feature the Israeli mutant super-spy Sabra.
Daredevil: Born Again
D’onofrio and Daredevil actor Charlie Cox took the stage at D23 with a new logo for Daredevil: Born Again. Both expressed enthusiasm for the impending 18-episode series. Cox’s Matt Murdock, who made his formal MCU debut in Spider-Man: No Way Home, is set to appear in a forthcoming episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, in which Daredevil and She-Hulk will team up to confront a gang of thugs.
Marvel Studios also revealed the cast and all seven members of Marvel’s Thunderbolts, which will be released in 2024. Former bad guys like Red Guardian, U.S. Agent, Taskmaster, and Ghost will presumably be recruited by Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, who will be played by Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova and Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier/White Wolf. The first season of Thunderbolts will start filming in 2023.
Last but not least, a rare video from The Marvels, the Captain Marvel sequel in which Carol Danvers’ Captain Marvel joins forces with Kamala Khan’s Ms. Marvel and Monica Rambeau’s Spectrum, was presented at D23 Expo.
For whatever reason, the new footage reveals that all three MCU heroes will begin shifting places whenever they utilize their powers (as seen in Ms. Marvel’s post-credits scene). The new footage also includes Nick Fury. Directed by Nia DaCosta, The Marvels is set to release in theatres in July 2023.
