Comic-Con Buzz: Watch New ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer; Plus: Michelle Pfeiffer Joins ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’

Thor: Ragnarok

After all the positive recent buzz generated by Disney’s D23 Expo, we wondered what more Marvel might have up its collective sleeve. We found out during their panel at Comic-Con.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd and Michael Pena began by introducing the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a new video, along with new footage from Ant-Man and the Wasp.
