‘Infinity War’ upstages ‘Star wars’ at fan expo
    2017-July-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A TEASER trailer for “Avengers: Infinity War” stole the show at the star-studded presentation of the Walt Disney Studios upcoming live-action films at the studios’ fan convention D23, upstaging even “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Oprah Winfrey and Mary Poppins.

“Star Wars” fans did get a little morsel of footage in a behind-the-scenes featurette from the upcoming space saga and a lively panel with the film’s writer-director Rian Johnson and a few of the film’s stars. But audiences have yet to see a full trailer for the film.

Instead, it was “Avengers: Infinity War” that got fans really excited.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was on hand with a stage full of stars that included Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, Elizabeth Olsen as The Scarlett Witch, and Josh Brolin as the ultimate bad guy Thanos. The trailer, which has not yet been released online, was packed to the brim with tantalizing scenes, including Thor, floating and near dead in deep space being rescued by the Guardians of the Galaxy; Spider-Man’s hair standing up on his arm; Tony Stark ominously warning that, “He’s coming for us,” likely talking about Thanos; and Thanos himself gripping a weakened Thor’s skull and looking ready to crack it with ease.

“Avengers: Infinity War” comes out May 4, 2018.

Almost on par with the “Infinity War” enthusiasm was the response to the footage for the Mary Poppins sequel “Mary Poppins Returns,” a colorful and topsy-turvy new installment in the world of P.L. Travers from director Rob Marshall.

“Hamilton’s” Lin-Manuel Miranda co-stars as a lamplighter Jack with Emily Blunt, who takes on the role of Mary Poppins, in a cast that also features Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Meryl Streep and Colin Firth. “Mary Poppins Returns” bows on Christmas Day, 2018.

The studio also announced the casting for its live-action “Aladdin” remake, from director Guy Ritchie. Relative newcomer Mena Massoud will be playing the scrappy street urchin Aladdin, while Naomi Scott of “Power Rangers” will take on the role of Jasmine. Will Smith was previously cast in the role of the Genie.

Disney also set a release date for its live-action “Dumbo,” from director Tim Burton, for March 29, 2019.

Director Ava DuVernay was also in Anaheim to preview her adaption of Madeleine L’Engle’s fantasy classic “A Wrinkle in Time,” along with stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine and newcomer Storm Reid, who plays the film’s lead Meg.

Audiences were excited to get a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes footage of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” scheduled for release Dec. 15 this year.

D23, named after the year Walt Disney founded his company, ran through Sunday.
