They then reveal that the Captain America 3: Serpent Society title wasn’t real and that it is (as has been rumored) Captain America 3: Civil War.
Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. show up. Announce that Chadwick Boseman has been cast as Black Panther. He joins them on stage.
Black Panther concept art inserted at right. Black Panther gets an Easter Egg in Age of Ultron and will show up in full costume in Captain America 3. T’Challa will play a big part in Civil War.
Captain Marvel writer & director news coming soon. Casting will take much longer.
Fiege says Civil War movie will be “very different” than the comics. Also that it will deal with global superhero registration and will have a flashpoint event. Hulk & Black Widow will be in all Avengers movies; no plans for another standalone Hulk movie or a Widow standalone movie yet. Age of Ultron may possibly have Easter Eggs for the Inhumans as well, which we will find out more about very soon.
UPDATE: 2:53 EST – Someone asks Fiege about Spider-Man. He says it’s either “not true at all” or “something not ready to be announced yet.”
And that’s it. Below, nifty new logos!
