  • The photos from the press conference show Danai Gurira (Okoye), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), freshly fifty-something Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and others.
  • But others like Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Tom Holland (Spider-Man) and the Guardians of the Galaxy were absent.

Jon Favreau, who plays Happy Hogan, reminded audience members that the characters are dead, too.

Boseman is one actor who has leaned into the superhero death theme. He recently answered questions during a media interview by saying his character Black Panther is dead, according to Cinema Blend.
