Marvel D23

Marvel Studios' panel at San Diego Comic-Con was truly one for the books, but Hall H was only the beginning. Marvel is expected to deliver another round of announcements at September's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, and hopefully reveal a bit more about those empty Phase 6 release slots, Secret Wars and The Kang Dynasty, the Fantastic Four reboot, and more! 

But in addition to the future of the MCU, D23 is set to host a number of other Marvel panels as well, including a Disney & Marvel game showcase, a presentation celebrating 60 years of the Amazing Spider-Man, and an opportunity to both hear and learn about the music made for MCU shows and films. 

However, much like Star Wars Celebration and San Diego Comic-Con, not all panels are available to watch from home. As to which panels those will be, Marvel fans now have an idea of what to expect.

What Marvel D23 Panels Will Be Livestreamed?

Now that D23 has shared additional information about its upcoming slate of Marvel-related panels, MCU fans now know the D23 Expo festivities that will be live-streamed and those that will be exclusive to attendees. 

The following is the list of panels at part of Marvel's showcase that WILL be live-streamed:

No Hall D23 Live-Stream? 

For most Marvel fans, the most-anticipated and news-worthy panel at D23 is the Hall D23 Presentation.

Much like Hall H, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is expected to take the stage to offer new looks at upcoming projects, make cast announcements, and likely fill in those Phase 5 and 6 blanks. 

The fact that this panel won't be live-streamed is unfortunate for those who can't be in attendance, but it's not surprising as this is the norm. Instead, fans who aren't in the room will have to glean what they can from news articles and social media reports. 

However, it is good to know that audiences everywhere will get to see Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman be honored as a Disney Legend during the Disney Legend Awards Ceremony, especially with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's November 11 release just around the corner. 

Spidey fans will also appreciate the fact that Marvel Comics: Celebrating 60 Years of the Amazing Spider-Man will be available to watch from home, and Podcast Live Celebrates Marvel Music is sure to be fascinating given the MCU's ever-expanding and distinctive library of music. 

Finally, the Disney Parks panel titled A Boundless Future: Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products could well have some fascinating new Marvel experiences in the works, especially given the MCU's growing presence at the Disneyland Resort, Disney Parks around the world, and aboard the Disney Cruise Line. 

The D23 Expo kicks off on September 9 and concludes on September 11.
