Comment From Guest
I love these live blogs

10:38
ComingSoon.net: Should be fun!

10:39
Comment From Nick
Some people are saying they think it will be a Doctor Strange announcement. But does that alone warrant such a large and mysterious event? I would think it would be a lot easier and cheaper for that to be in a press release. What do you guys think the announcement is?

10:39
ComingSoon.net: We don’t have to wait long now!

10:41
ComingSoon.net: Seeing lots of comments from you hoping it’s a Spidey joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe announcement. Doubtful…

10:43
ComingSoon.net: This was the outside of the El Capitan Theatre http://instagram.com/p/utFe…

10:44
Comment From Steve
My main hope is for Captain Marvel and Black Panther to be confirmed, even if there’s no casting details. I’d also like it if they confirmed Dr Strange’s casting, and if Cap 3 is definitely Civil War. Definitely think it’ll be more than just Doctor Strange casting.

10:44
ComingSoon.net: Those all sound possible.

10:45
Comment From michael
maybe just a schedule of future movies just as DC

10:45
ComingSoon.net: Maybe this is their answer?

10:47
Comment From Guest
I don’t suppose there’s an actual live stream of the event?

10:47
ComingSoon.net: Nope.

10:48
Comment From Travis
When was the last time marvel had a live presser like this outside of a Con?

10:48
ComingSoon.net: Never?

11:40
Silas Lesnick: Should be just a minute…

11:41

11:44
Silas Lesnick: Feige is back!

11:44
Silas Lesnick: He’s sitting. It’s much smaller and less formal

11:45
Silas Lesnick: “If there are more years after 2019, there will be more possibilities,” he teases someone asking how ahead they’ve planned

11:45
Silas Lesnick: This was to be their SDCC presentation, but they just weren’t ready to reveal all this

11:46
Silas Lesnick: Someone just asked about Doctor Strange

11:46
ComingSoon.net: 10,000 readers. You guys and gals rock.

11:46
Silas Lesnick: “If it were confirmed,” Feige says, “We would have announced it today.”

11:47
Silas Lesnick: We will meet Black Panther in Captain America 3 in full costume

11:47
Silas Lesnick: “He’s a big player in Civil War,” says Feige

11:48
Silas Lesnick: Feige says rumors about CAPTAIN MARVEL casting will probably begin immediately, but we’ll see writer and director announcements “quite soon”

11:48
Silas Lesnick: Casting won’t be for awhile, though

11:50
Silas Lesnick: He says the CIVIL WAR we’ll see is very different from the comics

11:50
Silas Lesnick: Feige says Hulk will be in all the Avengers films

11:50
Silas Lesnick: A standalone Hulk film may still happen, but all he says is “We’ll see”

11:52
Silas Lesnick: Someone just asked about Spider-Man

11:52
Silas Lesnick: He says it’s either “not true at all” or “something not ready to be announced yet”

11:55
Silas Lesnick: Someone asked about gender and race playing a role in finding directors for BLACK PANTHER and CAPTAIN MARVEL

11:55
Silas Lesnick: He says, no, it’s going to be the best person for the job no matter what

11:56
Silas Lesnick: Feige is a bit more involved in AGENT CARTER, but primarily has distance from the TV material

11:57
Silas Lesnick: Feige says we may find out more about INHUMANS very soon

11:57
Silas Lesnick: Easter eggs will set them up in future films. He hints that it’ll be AGE OF ULTRON, but doesn’t confirm

11:58
Comment From Squirrel-man
Ask if we will see TV material tying into the movies please

11:58
Silas Lesnick: That was actually my very question! Unfortunately, he played it rather coy, just saying that Marvel TV is primarily a different department

11:59
Silas Lesnick: Someone just asked about Runaways…

11:59
Silas Lesnick: Feige says he’s a big fan of the script they have, but it just isn’t ready yet

11:59
Silas Lesnick: It comes up quite a bit in both TV and film discussions, he says

12:00
Silas Lesnick: Someone asked about a Black Widow solo film

12:01
Silas Lesnick: Feige says the reason it hasn’t happened because she’s so good working with the Avengers and says that the Hulk is, at the moment, the same way

12:02
Silas Lesnick: Feige confirms that CIVIL WAR will be global superhuman registration with a specific inciting incident

12:02
Silas Lesnick: Secret identities aren’t as important in the MCU version of the story

12:03
Silas Lesnick: That’s it! Thanks for reading everyone!
