It’s officially Day One of SDCC, and Marvel has already shown off a new trailer, some footage, and an official poster of their new animated series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
The new series looks geared toward a younger demographic, and its comic book was originally unveiled to critical acclaim. Along with the enthusiasm from social media and those in attendance, one major takeaway is the breaking news that Cobie Smulders, who many know as Maria Hill in the MCU, will be reprising her role as the Shield Agent as a guest star. Still, the series is confirmed not to be in the shared continuity.
A clip for the series was officially shown during the panel, along with plot details casting announcements, and guest stars. The official cast is stacked to say. From everything shown it seems Marvel could have a hit on their hands, and only time will tell, but this is a great step in the right direction.

You can watch the clip below: One thing to note and mention is the zany tone, but the stylish comic-inspired animation that looks incredible, and feels will be a new chapter of not only expanding creator and artist influence but showing other heroes that waited for their time to shine from the panels of Marvel Comics now brought to life.
