Marvel serves star-studded surprises at Comic-Con for new film slate

The new footage shows us more magical creatures and more Eddie Redmayne in the role of Newt Scamander. Casting these superhero films aren't easy however, when it comes to Marvel, they really know what they're doing.

Oscar-winning Room actress Brie Larson was revealed as Captain Marvel, but no details were given on the 2018 movie.

The film sees Benedict Cumberbatch take up the role of Stephen Strange, a neurosurgeon whose career is left in tatters after a devastating vehicle accident.

Swinton is playing the "Ancient One", a mystical character who serves as a mentor to Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange.

Doctor Strange will be released in cinemas on November 4.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in the forthcoming superhero movie as Doctor Stephen Strange, a neurosurgeon who "discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions" following a serious auto accident.

There was also a surprise glimpse of "Spider-Man: Homecoming", with very early footage from the film due for release in on July 7 next year showing Peter Parker, played by Tom Holland.

It was announced that a new attraction based on Guardians Of The Galaxy will open at Disneyland in California in the summer of 2017. (IMDB lists her as "Christine Palmer", who is a Marvel character.) Geez, we'll probably have to go see the movie to find out what the deal is.

Animators recreated the Comic-Con panel setup in a short sketch that included a Lego version of panel moderator Conan O'Brien asking Lego Batman, Lego Joker and Lego Robin about the new film, in which Batman tackles fatherhood.

Audiences also got a sneak peek at Wonder Woman, a female-led superhero film starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, which is set to hit theatres next year. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman's debut in comic books.
