Silas Lesnick from Comingsoon.net live-blogged descriptions of each footage shown at the Marvel Studios panel at Hall H, San Diego Comic-Con 2013.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD
WOW! It looks like the most epic Game of Thrones battle you can imagine
Very, very practical-looking
The footage begins in the middle of a battlefield. The Warriors Three are among those fighting.
The rainbow bridge appears and Mjolnir comes through first.
It hits one of the opponent soldiers and Thor is right behind it.
He slams it against the Earth and soldiers go flying.
Sif saves Thor from a spear at the last second.
Over the hill a giant monster who looks like he’s made of clay approaches.
He’s huge and angry. Nearly 20 feet.
“I accept your surrender,” Thor grins.
The beast refuses and Thor smashes him to pieces with the hammmer.
“Anyone else?” Thor asks.
The Marvel logo comes up and we’re in London. Jane Foster is there and Thor arrives via the bridge.
“I gave you my word I would return for you,” he says.
We see Jane in Asgard, exploring the wonder of it all
There’s a brief, “Holy s–t” line from Kat Dennings as Thor and Jane vanish via the bridge.
Something is wrong in Asgard. There’s some sort of invisible bridge that has been discovered nearby.
Thor goes to Loki. He’s get in a prison cell with a big glass panel in front.
“After all this time, you come before me, brother?” says Loki, “Why? To mock?”
Thor says he needs Loki’s help.
We see a hand reach for a broken mask, I believe it’s Malekith.
“Your bravery will not relieve your pain,” a voice (I think Eccleston) says. “Your family and your world will be extinguished.”
Loki sets off with Thor, Jane, Sif and the Warriors Three for a mission.
Jane looks at a monitor and says something about the fabric of reality being torn apart.
Sif tells Loki that if he betrays Thor, she’ll kill him.
Jane marches right up and slaps Loki in the face.
“That was for New York!” she says.
“I like her,” Loki grins.
There’s a final shot of Thor on the ground, hurt, with Loki standing over him.
He kicks Thor directly in the face.
Thor reaches for his hammer, but Loki kicks his hand away.
The logo comes up. It looks amazing!
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
We open in an elevator. Cap is inside, looking out the glass window. I think we’re in DC.
We see him from behind. He’s got the shield on his back like a backpack.
He turns as more people (Frank Grillo among them) get on.
His uniform is new. It looks a lot like the US Agent costume.
The music is moody, like The Hunt For Red October.
Cap looks Grillo up and down. He senses something isn’t right.
More people get on. Cap keeps looking at them. He notices many of them are armed.
More and more get on with each floor. The elevator is packed.
Cap takes another look at their guns.
Before we get started,” he says, “Does anyone want to get out?”
Grillo says something about it “not being personal” and a fight breaks out.
It’s a massive fight, mostly shot from above, in the confined space. Cap takes out every single guy.
He kicks his shield, flipping it into his hand as he exits.
The Marvel logo comes up. We see Robert Redford in an office.
He saying that he joined SHIELD to protect the world.
“To build a better world sometimes means tearing the old one down,” he says. “And that makes enemies.”
We see the Helicarrier flying. Lots of Black Widow action.
Fury shaking hands with Redford.
Fury is talking to Cap.
“I thought the punishment usually came after the crime,” Cap tells him.
We see Mackie running from a futuristic helicopter. He leaps off a building and we see the Falcon wings come out!
Cap on his motorcycle, fighting the helicopter.
The helicarrier falling out of the sky in flames.
The final shot is Cap’s shield on the ground, A metal hand reaches down to pick it up, revealing the Winter Soldier.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Star-Lord gets arrested, disappointed they don’t know his name.
We see him being booked on a prison ship and John C. Reilly reading off the passenger manifest.
Drax, all practical
Gamora (Zoe looks AMAZING), also practical.
She’s described as “Thanos’ adopted daughter by Reilly”
Rocket Racoon, just called “Rocket”
No word on the voice. But he’s feisty. He spits as his name gets read.
Groot, who is all CGI and has to lean down for his mug shot.
Reilly calls him a “personal houseplant slash muscle”
I AM GROOT
Then Star Lord, who very slowly does a jack-in-the-box flipping off Reilly.
When he finishes, he mocks surprise. “Oh,” he says ,”I’m sorry. I didn’t know how that machine worked.”
As he’s getting booked, he’s very angry about a guard taking his headphones and listening to them.
“They call themselves the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’,” Reilly says, rolling his eyes.
“What a bunch of a-holes,” says the guard behind Reilly.
The logo comes up with “Hooked on a Feeling” playing over it.
THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
This is revealed to be the title for the sequel of Marvel’s The Avengers by Joss Whedon.
