Marvel blew away D23 Expo with a stage-filling collection of heroes (and villain) assembled for Avengers: Infinity War. Back at its booth, the studio displayed costumes and props from its upcoming slate: Thor: Ragnarok (Nov. 3, 2017), Black Panther (Feb. 16, 2018), and Infinity War (May 4, 2018). Flip through our photo highlights to go behind the scenes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
