San Diego Comic-Con is considered one of the most impactful events in not just comic culture, but pop culture in general. After a 2-year break due to COVID-19 pandemic, the convention is back in-person, and this year both major comic publishers were also there to present their latest projects.
There’s big news for pretty much everyone: Marvel fans got a mostly solid timeline of the next two phases and three years of our lives, with some long-awaited (and grim) returns of fan favorites, as well as interesting teasers for new heroes who are sure to play a big role in the coming several years.
DC fans, meanwhile, got another look at the still-shifting hierarchy of power in the DC universe, or at least how it relates to the two films closest in release dates, Black Adam and Shazam: Fury of the Gods. (yes, there is a “DC SuperPets” animated movie coming out next weekend, but it probably isn’t part of what is now considered the DC Universe now).
For those who prefer sci-fi and fantasy on their TVs over movies, the big juggernaut at SDCC was Amazon with new information on The Lord of the Rings and The Wheel of Time. Netflix released the first trailer for Sandman, Star Trek delivers fans both a nostalgic trip and one of the most interesting crossovers ever, and HBO Max finally gave us a look at the Gremlins sequel.
