Last year I said Warner Bros. won San Diego Comic-Con thanks to all the trailers they showed. Heck, had Warners only showed the first “Wonder Woman” last year, I think they still would have won.
This year however, I’m giving Marvel the win. This is not because I didn’t like what WB did, but because Marvel gave us a new “Thor: Ragnarok” trailer, some much-needed “Captain Marvel” movie news, and even some “Ant-Man and the Wasp” casting announcements. So kudos to you Marvel, you win San Diego Comic-Con 2017.
There were of course a ton of news to come out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. So many news items come out at the same time, that it’s rather easy to miss some of them. I’m not going to comment on everything, that would take far too long and my wifey keeps telling me to pack for our vacation. But here are a few thoughts I had on this year’s SDCC:
- “Thor: Ragnarok” looks like a lot of fun!
- Michelle Pfeiffer playing Janet Van Dyne? Hell yeah.
- Thanks to his enthusiasm, Jason Momoa has won me over.
- Vincent Price’s voice gave me nightmares as a kid, and even as an adult. Thanks a lot “Stranger Things.”
- Because of the “Westworld” teaser, I have been humming Sammy Davis Jr. all morning.
- The Kingsman panel was cool and all, but I think 20th Century Fox blew a big chance by not featuring anything else on Thursday.
- “Wynonna Earp” got renewed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- I appreciate that SYFY does a nightly show live from the convention, but it would be nice if they featured something about comic books, and not just tv and film.
- The second trailer for “Justice League” was awesome. I think there was more humor in the trailer, than in any of the other Zack Snyder DCEU movies combined. Now I’m really excited to see the movie.
- The first thing I thought of when I saw the Justice League poster was…
Bismillah! No we will not let you go – let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go – let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go let me go
Will not let you go let me go (never)
Never let you go let me go
Never let me go ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
