For the first time ever, Toonado will be in attendance during the D23 Expo as Rohan Patel heads to Anaheim to get all the biggest scoops and reveals directly from Kevin Feige himself about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The biggest panel of the weekend will begin on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. PST and while details are scarce, all signs have pointed to the cast of Fantastic Four being revealed during the special presentation. There's also a strong chance we get further clarity on Phase 5 and Phase 6, with possible X-Men reveals coming too.
Along with Marvel Studios, the early presentation will also feature Lucasfilm and 20th Century Studios, so expect some updates on The Mandalorian season three and maybe some news on their future theatrical slate.
Here's a schedule of the presentations we'll definitely be attending this weekend, including the two big ones - Disney/Pixar on Friday afternoon and Marvel Studios on Saturday morning. We'll be live blogging both panels on CBM, so make sure to tune in a little ahead of the scheduled time to prepare yourself for a few hours of nonstop announcements.
