Yesterday during SDCC SyFy made the announcement that their whacked-out western horror comedy series Wynonna Earp would stick around another year. The crowd went wild, as this tweet video proves.
This time last week, the entire world was buzzing about the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor on Doctor Who. Some were praising the decision BBC made, while others were throwing lines like “political agenda” and other insults at the casting. Many former Doctors and companions have weighed in on this, and at San Diego Comic Con, Peter Capaldi (the current Doctor) and Stephen Moffat (the showrunner) weighed in as well.
Despite it being the third film in the series, Thor: Rangarok is still adding key characters from the Thor mythology. In this film, we’re getting the villainess Hela, the warrior Valkyrie, and Thor’s ally/enemy in Skurge The Executioner. Who in this film will be played by Karl Urban.
The Black Panther footage at San Diego Comic Con was a major hit with fans, and as such, many are asking more and more questions about the film that will be coming next year. At SDCC, IGN caught up with Michael B. Jordan, who is set to play villain Erik Killmonger in the film.
One of the phrases that has been said for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that “it’s all connected.” Meaning, that even if you don’t realize it, everything single movie in the universe ties to the other, and as such, as a deep impact on the others. For Thor: Ragnarok, the film is going to have a big impact on Thor in numerous ways. One of which is his placement in Infinity War. For in footage shown at San Diego Comic Con, he’s shown literally crashing into the Guardians of the Galaxy ship.
Most of the Marvel universe is excited for what’s coming in Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and then the start of the two-part Infinity War. But then after that, the first film in the MCU to be released will be the next Spider-Man film. Homecoming did very well at the box office, and people love Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and can’t wait to see him come back.
Infinity War was in full display at San Diego Comic Con, and though a full trailer was not shown, those who attended the panel were able to see glimpses of what’s coming, including Thanos not wearing the armor he did in Guardians of the Galaxy or other cameo appearances. IGN talked with co-director Joe Russo who talked about the “journey” that Thanos is on:
The Twelfth Doctor’s time is coming to an end. But before then, he must return to the beginning to find meaning in his life. Fans around the world clapped with joy when Peter Capaldi’s Doctor got to meet the 1st Doctor played by David Bradley (who takes over the role from the late William Hartnell) just before his regeneration on “The Tenth Planet”. And now, at San Diego Comic Con, the trailer for “Twice Upon A Time” has come.
Ant-Man and The Wasp is going to be one of Marvel’s big movies next year, and with it comes the first Marvel film to have female lead in the name. At San Diego Comic Con, many new things were revealed about the film, including new co-stars with will include Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne.
The Hellboy films have been very much cult-classics, and were starred and helmed by fan-favorite director Guillermo Del Toro and actor Ron Perlman. But now, a reboot of the films is coming, and with it a new star in David Harbour. At San Diego Comic Con, the actor talked about the original comics, and why Hellboy is actually a perfect hero for where we are right now:
Defenders is a culmination of the first two seasons of Daredevil, and the first seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. And because of that, the main characters aren’t exactly at the top of their game given the events of how their seasons ended. For when Defenders arrives, Matt Murdock is no longer Daredevil given what happened to Elektra.
At San Diego Comic Con, it was revealed that the X-Files would be growing in some interesting ways, mainly through a duo of audiobooks that’ll feature the main cast. This includes David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi, William B. Davis, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund and Bruce Harwood.
