superman frank miller

30 years ago, writer Frank Miller and artist David Mazzucchelli explored the earliest days of the Caped Crusader in Batman: Year One. This storyline has since become the go-to origin tale for the character, heavily inspiring other comic creators and Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. Now, Miller is looking to do the same for another iconic DC superhero. At Comic-Con 2017, Miller revealed that he’s set to tackle Superman: Year One.

Black Panther Comic-Con Panel

The Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con was, as expected, the geek equivalent of a rock concert. And Black Panther, which is set to arrive early next year, received a rockstar’s reception. In addition to a panel Q&A with director Ryan Coogler and members of the cast, the crowd was treated to a scene from the film and a brand new trailer (which we were told won’t be online for some time).

But that’s why we’re here. We’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know.

captain marvel movie 1

The Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con 2017 couldn’t feature footage from Captain Marvel (because it hasn’t started filming yet), but it could reveal a number of tantalizing details about the Brie Larson-starring superhero movie due out in 2019. First, we learned that the rumors are true: Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury will play a role in the movie. Second, we learned something of a bombshell: the film will be a prequel, set long before the events of the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Westworld season 2 has only been filming for a week, but that didn’t stop HBO’s ambitious science fiction series from bringing a few minutes of footage to Comic-Con 2017. After a panel that was mostly about fun banter amongst the assembled cast and a steadfast refusal to comment on the upcoming second season in the slightest, it all wrapped up with a cryptic teaser and a release year.

star trek discovery trailer 1

Comic-Con is the epicenter of all things geeky, so of course the new Star Trek: Discovery trailer premiered there. The new series, which is set to arrive on CBS later this year, looks to invigorate Star Trek for the small screen by looking to the past – the show is set a decade before the adventures of James T. Kirk and promises to cast light on a time period in the series’ sprawling timeline that has yet to be properly explored on screen.

But you don’t have to be at the series’ panel, or even at Comic-COn, to watch the new trailer. It’s online right now and you can watch it below.

Ben Affleck Leaving Batman

The internet has been awash in rumors that Ben Affleck was getting ready to hang up his cape as the Dark Knight of Gotham City and that Justice League would mark his final appearance as Batman. And even though we’ve heard similar stories through the grapevine, Affleck himself officially shot them down at San Diego Comic-Con today.

Ben Affleck joined other members of the Justice League cast on stage during the Warner Bros. panel and moderator Chris Hardwick (possibly looking to nip some mast Q&A questions in the bud) brought it up. Was Affleck done with The Batman? Would War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves have to find a new Bruce Wayne for the solo movie he’s developing? Read More »

The Punisher TV Show Footage Revealed at Comic-Con

Hall H was filled with thousands of Comic-Con attendees ready to learn more about The Defenders, the Netflix series that unites the heroes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. But first, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb had a special surprise for the crowd. Jon Bernthal took the stage and we all instantly realized what was coming. After all, Bernthal played Frank Castle (known in the criminal underworld as The Punisher) in season 2 of Daredevil and we knew he was getting his own spin-off.

And so the audience got to watch the first footage from The Punisher, which was quickly followed by a string of other Marvel Television announcements…including an official announcement of Iron Fist season 2.

Preacher Comic-Con Panel

AMC’s Preacher is based on one of the most popular (and controversial) comic books of the past few decades, so it’s right at home at Comic-Con.
