Marvel previews new Spider-Man, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Dr Strange films at Comic-Con


Marvel have unveiled new footage from a number of new superhero movies including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 and Dr Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

The Sherlock star presented a new trailer for the film, an adaptation of the comic by Steve Ditko, at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

He was joined on stage by his co-stars, fellow Britons Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor, Canadian actress Rachel McAdams and Mads Mikkelesen, who plays villain Kaecilius in the movie, which is set for release in the UK on October 28.

The Comic-Con audience were treated to a first look at Spider-Man: Homecoming despite the film being just 10 days into its shoot.

Britsh actor Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker in the latest big screen reboot of the web-slinger, which director Jon Watts described as a "high school movie". The film is due for release next summer.

Oscar-winner Brie Larson is to star in Captain Marvel as air force pilot Carol Danvers, who gets special powers after an alien encounter. The film - which is not due for release in March 2019 - will be the first in the Marvel cinematic universe to centre on a female character.

Brie, 26, won the Best Actress Academy Award this year for her performance in hostage drama Room.

Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana presented footage from their new film Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, which also stars Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone. The film is due for release in May next year.

It was announced that a new attraction based on Guardians Of The Galaxy will open at Disneyland in California in the summer of 2017. The ride will replace the Twilight zone Tower of Terror, which is due to close early next year.

Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o and Creed actor Michael B Jordan were among the cast of Black Panther to attend Comic-Con.

Chadwick Boseman will play the title role in the film, while Michael will portray Black Panther's nemesis Erik Killmonger.

Lupita - who won an Academy Award for best supporting actress for 12 Years A Slave - is set to play Nakia, one of the bodyguards and potential wives of T'Challa (Black Panther).
