The D23 Expo, “Disney’s Ultimate Fan Event,” was held this past weekend in Anaheim, California. This year’s event made a huge blip on nerd radar, as it featured news, exhibits and footage from Marvel for the first time since they were acquired by Disney. The biggest news to come out of the Expo was the four minutes of Avengers footage that was screened for attendees, which by all accounts was mind-blowingly awesome. Here are some links to the major stories about D23, since I wasn’t able to attend, or I was just too lazy to write an extensive piece. I’ll leave it up to you to decide.
