spoil Avengers 4

Did Chris Evans accidentally spoil Avengers 4 when he recently tweeted about how he was saying goodbye to the character of Captain America? No! Well, at least that’s what he wants us to think. Evans recently appeared at a comic convention in Chicago to clarify his comment and reassure fans that he did not, in fact, ruin anything about the fate of the Star Spangled man with a plan. But maybe, just maybe, Marvel security got to him and are now orchestrating an elaborate cover-up campaign to throw fans off the scent.

Eh, probably not, though. Chances are pretty good that Evans is simply just telling the truth. Keep reading to learn about how he didn’t actually spoil Avengers 4.

When you’ve attended enough cons, you get used to the hustle and bustle of the nerd world and the inescapable crowds and unnecessary purchases. However, even the biggest con downsides don’t compare to the overall rush and fun of the experience.

I had been to New York Comic-Con before, but this was my first time attending multiple days. I learned a lot about how to navigate the event and experience as much as possible. It is, of course, beyond impossible to do everything, but the more you go, the easier it becomes to create a fulfilling schedule.

What We Do in the Shadows TV Show

Back in 2014, New Zealand’s top funny men, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, directed a weird little movie that would soon become one of the most revered mockumentaries, comedies, and vampire films of all time. What We Do In The Shadows’  hilarity and uniqueness made it ripe for an expanded universe, so the creators decided to look past the vampires of Wellington, NZ and move over to the everyday lives of vampire roommates living in Staten Island, New York for a new FX TV show.

And ay New York Comic-Con over the weekend, we were able to watch the pilot of the new American spin-off series.

The story of Amazon Prime Video picking up The Expanse for its fourth season is a true fairy tale about fandom, one about how thousands of people from different backgrounds connected across different parts of the internet to launch a campaign, that in a few short weeks, saved the series from cancelation (check out the “The Expanse Lives” fansite to get a detailed account of the fans’ efforts, which included flying a #SaveTheExpanse banner over Amazon Studios and launching a model of the Rocinante — the ship the crew lives on in the show — into actual space).

This story is also proof that hardcore fandom can be a force for good, how the hard work of dozens of dedicated volunteers and the passion of thousands of additional fans who supported them, kept the show alive. “It’s a very strong fanbase we’ve got for the show,” explained actor Cas Anvar at an Expanse Q&A panel at Atlanta’s Dragon Con this weekend. “Science fiction fans I think—and I’m a huge science fiction fan—we appreciate when we are given intelligent, layered and textured stories. And if you try to take that away from us, you’ve got to be prepared for a fight.”

Atlanta’s Dragon Con, a five-day event that took place this Labor Day weekend, is the antithesis of San Diego’s Comic-Con (SDCC). Where SDCC is industry-led and full of exclusive events, Dragon Con is fan-led and has at least two or three themed parties a night, which are open to all attendees. Dragon Con is one big party, really. A Mardi Gras for nerds. And despite the lack of industry presence, the con is chock full of special guests and panels that cater to fandoms, from Filk to The X-Files to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

So how exactly does Dragon Con differ from SDCC? Let me count the ways…

Comic-Con Injunction

The future of any Comic-Con other than San Diego Comic-Con and its official equivalents is now in serious doubt thanks to an injunction. A judge has ruled against Salt Lake Comic-Con from using titles “Comic Con” and “Comic-Con”, as well as any phonetic equivalents (like ComiKon). In short, if you have a local Comic-Con near you, it’s probably going to be changing its name very quickly.
