2. Avengers: Infinity War footage is shown (2017)
Out of the five events I’ve chosen, this is the only one I happened to be present for. So I’m a little biased on why this is so high. I got into Hall H after waiting for over 16 hours the previous day. Everyone knew that they were going to show some footage of Infinity War because they had done so the week before at Disney’s D23 event.
Of course, showing it came in dramatic fashion. Kevin Feige acted like they weren’t going to show it, but once he was persuaded by Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chadwick Boseman, and director Joe Russo, he caved and the footage was shown. It was a little cheesy, the way it was orchestrated, but at the same time, it definitely did make it more exciting and made my long wait worth it.
