That’s all the official things that will happen from Marvel at the D23 Expo. What about things that MIGHT happen? The Expo this year takes place a week before San Diego Comic Con. Traditionally it’s a few weeks after. This year, it looks like Disney may want to get the drop on SDCC by announcing some big news. We could see exclusive movie trailers, and announcements like they’ve done in the past. They could also show those same trailers and announcements during the big Marvel panel during SDCC.
But what else? Well, there’s been huge rumors about a new Marvel themed land coming to Disney’s California Adventure. After all, Guardians director James Gunn said that the new attraction was the start of the Marvel Theme Park Universe. Could we see a huge announcement about a Marvel land at Disneyland, or even new Marvel attractions all over the world? Possibly.
