On Monday, a few lucky members of the Hollywood press were invited to get a tour of Marvel Studios' offices on Disney Studios' Burbank lot. This was the first time any press has toured these offices and some teases were strategically revealed to generate excitement and fan hype as Marvel Studios is the best at doing. The following information has been sourced from io9.

Filming wraps today, April 19, and director Ryan Coogler begins editing the movie for its February 16, 2018 release. Here's io9's recap of this portion of the tour:
"We saw a sizzle reel explaining the world of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman). It included some truly spectacular concept art and images that go by so fast, it’s hard to detail them all, but what did stand out was the bustling technology of Wakanda: Black jet planes and huge buildings that look modern, but also have a very African feel. There was a shot of what appeared to be two Black Panthers fighting in some kind of underground area. And just beautifully vibrant costumes on everyone, but especially the Dora Milaje. There was a scene in which T’Challa appeared to be fighting someone on a rhino, and also a black arm gauntlet that looks like a panther with the mouth opening at the fist.
"Then, we saw dailies from Black Panther. There was a scene of Lupita Nyong’o’s character (who wasn’t named but referred to as a member of a border tribe) silently killing a bunch of soldiers. That was followed by the Dora Milaje, the royal bodyguards, on a boat surrounded by blue screen, on the way to the king’s coronation; their costumes were beaded, red and gorgeous. Then the border tribe returned, dressed in all greens, going to the same event on a similar boat, where everyone is dancing in unison.
"We then saw what was likely part of that coronation. It took place at Warrior Falls and featured T’Challa walking down a ramp in front of a cliff lined with all kinds of people, where Forest Whitaker’s character introduced him to the crowd. Boseman didn’t have a shirt on so you could see a huge tattoo going around his back and onto his chest.
"The footage shifted then to a casino in Korea where Klaw (Andy Serkis) enters with eight men and talks to Everett Ross (Martin Freeman). Ross noted that Klaw’s entourage is so big, he must have a mix-tape coming out, to which Klaw replies, 'I do, get him the link.' There will be a big shoot out in this casino featuring both those characters, as well as T’Challa."
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
The only piece of info revealed for Infinity War was concept art of Thanos without his helmet, wearing a skin-tight jumpsuit and wielding the Infinity Gauntlet with all six of the Infinity Stones in the glove. (Releases in the U.S. on May 4, 2018.)
ANT-MAN AND THE WASP
Some concept art was shown of Larson in a comic book-inspired Captain Marvel costume, however, once a director is brought on that look can and probably will change. Marvel Studios did say once they green light a movie project, their visual development and concept team begins creating the look of the movie even before the script is completed and anyone is attached to it. This is why the press tour saw Captain Marvel punching the fist of a giant robot in a piece of concept art. Again, that may or may not make it into the final movie in 2019.
