Kevin Feige is set to make another splash at D23 with even more MCU goodies for fans. Some safe bets on what to expect include footage for the MCU’s closest projects: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, and Samuel L Jackson’s Secret Invasion. We can also safely assume that Marvel will officially announce the long-rumored Werewolf By Night Halloween Special (rumored to release this October).
Marvel always has surprises up its sleeve for big events like D23 and we are expecting some big ones. The Fantastic Four movie cast, an official announcement of Wonder Man on Disney+, and Eternals 2 are just some of the major reveals we predict Marvel could drop at their panel Saturday morning.

Star Wars Celebration was light on new announcements, especially for Star Wars’ theatrical slate, so we are expecting some big things to come out of D23.
Some safe bets for fans attending the event include footage for multiple upcoming Star Wars Disney+ series, including The Mandalorian Season 3, Ahsoka, and Andor. An official announcement of The Bad Batch Season 2’s release is also a near guarantee.
We are expecting some bigger surprises as well, especially for upcoming Star Wars movies. Thor director Taika Waititi and Marvel’s Kevin Feige both have upcoming Star Wars films we could see updates about. A Star Wars: The Old Republic movie and a The Mandalorian spinoff movie have also been rumored for some time, and we hope to see an official announcement at D23.
