San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is round the corner and so is our excitement level, 8 Fandoms That'll Shine Through This Time
San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is just around the block!
The biggest pop-culture event of the year, all of the biggest names in comics, movies and television will come together at the San Diego Convention Center and share their plans with their biggest fans.
Below i have made an All Exclusive List of things which you can expect From San Diego Comic-Con 2018 :
1. Iron Fist Teaser
Thought the first season of Iron Fist didn't do well according to the critics, but thanks to the fans, who made it one of Netflix’s most watched shows. After appearing in The Defenders the character is back and ready to continue his quest to defend the Marvel Universe from dark magic.
Danny Rand is set to appear in Luke Cage season two, but it’s still unclear whether Iron Fist season two takes place before, during or after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and where this show fits within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. With no Marvel Studios films making an appearance at Comic-Con this year, Iron Fist finally has a chance to bask in the spotlight.
2. Lucifer Returns
Lucifer’s cancellation at Fox and subsequent revival at Netflix, the creators, cast and fans of the show have reason to celebrate. The series, which follows the devil himself after he decides to leave hell and start a nightclub and operate as a Police consultant in Los Angeles, is a sleek, entertaining show.
Hopefully, the move to Netflix will allow the storytellers to focus on telling stories that wouldn’t have worked on network TV.
3. Going Upside Down With Stranger Things
Even though the show has only had two seasons, Stranger Things is already a pop-culture phenomenon.
The Netflix series is currently filming its third season and a number of novels and comic book adaptations have recently been announced.
Since HBO’s juggernaut shows Game of Thrones and Westworld are skipping Comic-Con this year, Netflix will likely push for their biggest franchise to have a major presence at the convention.
4. Wonder Woman 1984 Footage
A sequel to the World War I-era film, this new Wonder Woman movie is also directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. Details are still mum about whether Pine is playing the real Steve Trevor, who supposedly met his end in Wonder Woman, or one of his ancestors, but more information may be teased out.
Warner Bros. is likely pushing Jenkins to bring a quick sizzle reel to Comic-Con to get fans excited about Wonder Woman’s Cold War adventure.
5. Details About The DC Imprints
DC Comics has been firing on all cylinders lately.
In addition to interesting stories and new characters, the publisher is introducing a series of imprints that are geared towards different reading groups.
Lines like Black Label and DC Zoom allow the publisher to entice different kinds of creators and focus on giving different kinds of fans unique experiences. So far, a few books have been introduced on the labels, but things are still up in the air.
The label that I’m most interested in learning more about is Killing Zone, the Geoff Johns supervised imprint that will see the creator return to the world of comic books in an even bigger role.
6. Aquaman Trailer
Aquaman is DC’s next tent-pole movie. The King of Atlantis made his big screen debut in Justice League, but most of the character’s backstory has yet to be fleshed out.
With Aquaman coming out in December, Comic-Con is the perfect place for the studio to release a teaser trailer for the film.
Director James Wan has already confirmed is happening. Hopefully, the footage gives viewers a better look at essential supporting characters.
After introducing core superheroes like Aquaman and Wonder Woman,
Warner Bros. is finally focusing on expanding their hero roster to lesser-known characters.
Shazam, also referred to as Captain Marvel, will be flying onto the big screen next April. Following 10-year-old Billy Batson, Shazam! sees what happens after the kid is granted special abilities and can transform into a fully-formed superhero. The character may be as powerful as Superman, but it’s his sense of humor and big heart that will likely make Shazam a hit with general audiences.
Zachary Levi, who is a regular Comic-Con presence, will likely introduce a teaser trailer to a room full of screaming fans.
8. Venom Footage
Marvel Studios may be skipping Hall H during Comic-Con this year, but that doesn’t mean Marvel characters won’t be seen in the room.
Sony has already confirmed they will be bringing both Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Venom to the show.So fans have some web-slinging to look forward to.
Both movies have seen small teasers come out, but odds are new footage will be released. So far, fans have seen a lot of Tom Hardy running around in Venom, but the symbiote itself has only made a minor appearance.
Hopefully, Sony has some action-packed content to show off that will help distinguish Venom from the rest of the superhero movies coming out in the next few years.
