There’s no telling what Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm have in store for the big Hall D23 presentation. They’ve already revealed some major details earlier this year. The MCU will highlight such details. Night Werewolf, Deadpool 3, and many other things, while Star Wars is very excited about the future MandoVerse content as well as other Disney+ content.
Saturday, September 10th, Kevin Feige from Marvel Studios will present his big D23 presentations. Kathleen Kennedy from Lucasfilm is also there.
