Marvel has not yet shared the trailer elsewhere, but it was said to be such a hit with the D23 crowd that it brought them to their feet in applause.

However, fans were desperate to see the clip for themselves.

The preview was the most-anticipated promotional footage to launch at the convention and closed the live-action panel, which had also seen announcements from Star Wars, Mary Poppins Returns, Dumbo, Aladdin and Mulan.
