The team behind 'Black Panther'
Director Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station) poses backstage at Comic-Con with the cast of Black Panther: Danai Gurira (Okoye, head of the Wakanda special services unit known as the Dora Milaje), Chadwick Boseman (the warrior king of Wakanda himself), Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia, a soldier in the Dora Milaje), and Michael B. Jordan, who plays the villain Erik Killmonger. In the comics, Killmonger was a vengeful, exiled Wakandan who took on that bellicose nom de guerre and tried to stage a coup against the Black Panther.

Benedict Cumberbatch waves to the Comic-Con crowd to introduce clips from this November’s Doctor Strange. “He doesn’t know anything,” Cumberbatch said of the character. “He’s just at the beginning of figuring out what reality is.”

'Guardians' star Chris Pratt
Chris Pratt speaks to Hall H before showing one of the new Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 clips. He said Star-Lord has evolved since the last movie. “Well, he’s famous now!” Pratt told the crowd. “After saving so many people in the galaxy, we’re well-known now. He’s a little bit more responsible and trying to stay out of trouble, but not doing the best job.”
