Director Zack Snyder has a presence at San Diego Comic-Con this year, even though the filmmaker himself isn’t attending the convention. Some of his fans have organized an effort to convince Warner Bros. to release the Snyder Cut of Justice League, going as far as to hire a plane to fly over the convention center with that messaging on it yesterday.
Snyder himself isn’t there to see this support in person – instead, he’s off shooting his next movie, a zombie thriller called Army of the Dead. And now he’s released the first look at his cast – including Avengers: Endgame‘s Dave Bautista – all suited up to kick some zombie ass.

“Can we all just start crying so I don’t feel so weird?” Jared Padelecki said at the beginning of this year’s Supernatural panel at San Diego Comic-Con. It was an emotional time not only for him and the others on stage, but also for the fans in the Hall H audience. After a staggering 15 seasons and numerous Comic-Con appearances, Supernatural is coming to an end.
Padelecki, who plays Sam Winchester on the show, was joined by fellow actors Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester), Misha Collins (Castiel), and Alexander Calvert (Jack), along with executive producers Robert Singer, Andrew Dabb, Eugenie Ross-Leming, Brad Buckner, and Bob Berens on stage. Richard Speight Jr. and Rob Benedict, who play Gabriel and God/Chuck, respectively, were there as well, taking on the role of co-moderators again. And while everyone still cracked jokes with one another, there was a bittersweet mood in the air. Read More »
The “Women Who Kick Ass” panel is a San Diego Comic-Con staple.

It wouldn’t be Comic-Con without a panel from filmmaker, television director, comic writer, and pop culture influencer Kevin Smith. However, this year didn’t just have the Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma director gabbing away and telling showbiz stories.
At Comic-Con, the Kevin Smith Reboots Hall H panel debuted some clips for the filmmaker’s forthcoming comedy Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, a sequel/reboot of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Plus, he also debuted a scene from the film showcasing the movie within the movie: Bluntman v Chronic, clearly taking a cue from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Find out what we learned from the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Comic-Con panel presentation below. Read More »
The Marvel Cinematic Universe was back in San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H this year, where president Kevin Feige announced a combination of ten films and Disney+ shows coming out between now and November 2021. There’s a lot to be excited about even beyond the properties that received full presentations (Blade?! Fantastic Four?! Mutants?!), but before we move forward into the next phase of the MCU, it’s worth spending a bit of time reminiscing on the 13-year history that the MCU has already had with San Diego Comic-Con.
Read on for some of the most memorable SDCC moments from the Infinity Saga of the MCU. Read More »
Avengers: Endgame showed us that in the five years since Thanos snapped his fingers and got rid of half of all the living creatures in the galaxy, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) had really taken a dark turn. Tucked away in Norway in a fishing village dubbed New Asgard, the god of thunder is now an out of shape drunk who has tried to ignore his past and seems intent on never doing anything significant again. As we’ve discussed before, this might be used for laughs at first, but Thor has some serious post-traumatic stress going on after deeming himself a failure for not killing Thanos properly at the right time.
Of course, just because Thor is taking the loss a lot harder than some of the other Avengers doesn’t mean some of his inappropriate behavior isn’t still worth a laugh here and there. In fact, a recently released Avengers Endgame deleted scene shows him in Asgard doing something that we have never seen any of the other Avengers do before. And Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) is not happy about it. Read More »

Don’t Let Go premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival under the somewhat clunky title Relive. It didn’t make much of an impression at the fest, but now Blumhouse hopes audiences will be interested enough based on its much better title, and its pretty engaging trailer. The film stars David Oyelowo as a cop who suffers a terrible blow when members of his family, including his beloved niece (Storm Reid), are murdered. Then things get even weirder when the dead niece calls Oyelowo’s character on the phone…from the past. Watch the Don’t Let Go trailer below.
