It was inevitable. Like last year, San-Diego Comic-Con 2021 will remain virtual. While there are multiple COVID-19 vaccines right now, the pandemic remains a very serious issue. And as much as everyone would like things to go back to normal, it’s unlikely that we’ll see anything close to “normal” anytime soon. With that in mind, Comic-Con has made the tough but wise choice to remain virtual for one more year.

A lot of big pop culture conventions have been canceled thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But perhaps the most crushing blow was the official cancellation of San Diego Comic-Con, the biggest geek gathering in the world, covering all of your favorite movie franchises, TV shows, comics, podcasts, and more, as well as exciting new projects coming down the road. However, event organizers will try to salvage the convention with a San Diego Comic-Con At Home experience this summer. Read More »

The Russo Brothers, blockbuster filmmakers and experts at explaining every single thing that happened in their movies, are done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But that doesn’t mean they can’t still talk about it. While the Russos have no MCU films on their horizon, they’ll be partaking in a Hall H panel at this years’s Comic-Con. There, they’ll look back at their MCU films, and then look to the future, with their many projects to come.

Calling all convention lovers: two big con announcements have just dropped to get you more excited about plunking down some cash and jetting somewhere to stand in line. Now that Disney owns Fox, The Simpsons will make their first appearance at the D23 Expo (well, not literally; they’re cartoons). Meanwhile, Warner Bros. TV just announced what they’re bringing to San Diego Comic-Con – a line-up that includes a farewell to the long-running series Supernatural.

Summer is almost here, which means San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner. And this year’s Comic-Con has a surprise in store. Or rather, not in store: Warner Bros. won’t be bringing anything to the fabled Hall H this year. The studio could’ve easily had panels relating to Wonder Woman 1984, Joker and even Matt Reeves’s The Batman. Instead, they’re sitting this one out. In fact, the only WB movie to have any sort of representation at SDCC in 2019 will be It Chapter Two.

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.

In 1993, Warner Bros. released Demolition Man, a sci-fi action film that starred Sylvester Stallone as a present day cop who’s cryogenically frozen until being thawed out in the future to apprehend his greatest nemesis. It’s somehow terrible and wonderful at the same time.
It’s been 25 years since the film came out, and to celebrate, Warner Bros. is planning a Demolition Man Comic-Con pop-up at next month’s convention in San Diego. And if you’ve seen the movie, you probably know where this is going: yep, Taco Bell is going to be involved. Read More »
