There may not be a lot of movie news coming out of SDCC this year…but there will be plenty of comics! The likes of Disney and Universal panels will be replaced by panels showcasing what the convention was meant to be about in the first place. Comics publisher IDW has a lot planned, and they laid it all out for us today.
It’s almost time for San Diego Comic-Con, so what big news can we expect? Nothing from Disney — they just cancelled all their panels and announcements. Perhaps Universal can fill that gap — no wait, they’re also going to be absent. Netflix just announced they’re skipping too, and so did Sony. For the first time in a long time, SDCC has almost no major movie panels!
San Diego Comic-Con is an ideal place to make announcements for new projects, but some people go so bold as to debut them there. Moras Productions is one such outfit that’s making this move, choosing to sell their upcoming adventure comic Ancient Explorers: The Lost City of Peru for the first time at SDCC.
Here’s a forking awesome way to spend an hour. The Good Place Comic-Con panel, the last there will likely ever be, is now viewable online. But in case you don’t have the required number of minutes available, we’ve plucked the ten most interesting factoids revealed by the cast and crew during the event. If you DO have the time, the video is embedded below.
Some interesting news came out today about the casting choices for The CW’s Crisis On Infinite Earths mega-crossover. Brandon Routh will once again suit up to play Superman, a role he originally filled on the big screen in Superman Returns.
Movies weren’t all that was announced at Marvel’s SDCC panel tonight. There were also new details on their TV plans, though there was little in the way of shows we didn’t already know were planned. Most of these are headed to that Disney+ thing they want you to pay for.
One of the most anticipated panels of the entire San Diego Comic-Con dropped this evening. We’re finally learning about Marvel Studios’ full plans for Phase Four! And it’s crammed with goodness.
This is it, folks, this is the one you wanted — the official trailer for Infinity Train. For some reason CN let the site iO9 have it as an exclusive, rather than broadcast it to the world, but YouTube embeds anywhere.
Today at The Orville’s SDCC panel, creator and star Seth MacFarlane dropped the bomb that the series would not run on Fox for its third season. Instead, the show will become a Hulu original. Wha? Why?
A Game Of Thrones-less HBO needs something new to entice subscription buyers. HBO Max will be something different — a folding of all Warner Media services into one — so HBO needs some attractions of its own. They’re banking heavily on a new Watchmen series….not an adaption, but a continuation.
Someone on my Twitter feed commented that the new DuckTales is fast becoming the Smash Bros of TV cartoons, and it’s hard to argue. EW.com published a new promotional image for Seasons 2 and 3 that confirms a lot of “new” characters are on the way, though if you remember watching the Disney Afternoon, you’ve seen them before.
We hoped we’d get a bigger look at Netflix’s The Witcher from SDCC, and it just happened! The streamer just now released the anticipated debut trailer for the fantasy series.
