We've mentioned this before but now it's official! The reason there was no presentation for Marvel's The Avengers at the San Diego Comic-Con is because Disney and Marvel are going all out at the D23 Expo in less than two weeks. Here's a clip from the announcement at ComingSoon.net:
On Saturday, August 20, Rich Ross, chairman, The Walt Disney Studios; Sean Bailey, president, Production, The Walt Disney Studios; John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and Kevin Feige, producer and president, Marvel Studios, will present a not-to-be-missed look at The Walt Disney Studios' upcoming film slate, which includes Disney's The Muppets, John Carter, Disney-Pixar's Brave, Marvel's The Avengers, Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, Oz: The Great and Powerful, and more.
With projects from Disney, Pixar Animation Studios, and Marvel Studios, this special presentation will feature never-before-seen footage and all-star appearances by Jason Segel, Kermit, and Miss Piggy (Disney's The Muppets), Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, and Willem Dafoe (John Carter), Kelly Macdonald and Kevin McKidd (Brave), Jennifer Garner (The Odd Life of Timothy Green), Jack McBrayer and Sarah Silverman (Wreck-It Ralph), cast members from Marvel's The Avengers, and other surprise guests.
