A teaser trailer offered a glimpse at some of the exciting titles, as well as the livestream information. Here’s everything fans need to know about the showcase.
Disney & Marvel Games Showcase date and time
According to a release from D23 Expo, the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase will take place on Friday, Sept. 9. It comes as part of Disney’s long-running fan event, which will be held at Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, from Sept. 9 to Sept. 11. It should be an exciting weekend for Disney and Marvel fans!

What to expect from the showcase at D23 Expo 2022
Blessing Adeoye Jr., host and producer for YouTube’s Kinda Funny, will host the event. While D23 hasn’t shared the full lineup, we know that it will include “incredible new content from Disney & Pixar Games, Marvel Games, Lucasfilm Games, and 20th Century Games.”
The livestream will feature new game announcements, as well as updates on previously-revealed titles like Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and Disney Dreamlight Valley. There will also be a “sneak peek at an upcoming Marvel ensemble game from Skydance New Media.” This is no doubt referencing video game director Amy Hennig’s secret Marvel project, which was announced last October.
Some other games rumored to appear include a Black Panther game and Kingdom Hearts. Fans could also potentially learn more about Marvel’s Wolverine and Spider-Man 2 games.
After the show, guests at D23 Expo can enjoy a presentation with interviews, guests, and giveaways.
