San Diego International Comic-Con just happened, and unfortunately no one from The Nerdd was able to attend, but this is what we were able to learn watching it all from online, wishing we could be there.
The Walking Dead
When asked about George A. Romero, the legendary zombie movie director who died on July 16, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman said: “My first experience watching Night of the Living Dead was on network television in the ’90s… Just to go on that ride for the first time and see what a zombie story could be was amazing. I was instantly in love with the genre and the man, and I couldn’t be more upset about that loss.” —IMDb
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones got a new trailer for their upcoming season 7!
Marvel unveiled so much at Comic Con this year, and we are going to take a look at it all chronologically!
The Defenders comes out Aug 18, and not only did we get a really cool poster for it…
…but confirmation that Sigourney Weaver will be the villain of the show, which is interesting, seeing as how Madame Gao was becoming a secondary through line between Daredevil and Iron Fist. Speaking of which, Iron Fist season 2 also got confirmed as being in the works with no release date set yet. We also know now that at some point, Colleen Wing (from Iron Fist) and Misty Knight (from Luke Cage) will team up!
Stan Lee also was in a commercial for The Defenders in this amazing video!
Hulu will release its first Marvel show, The Runaways Nov 21 of which we have no information on yet, besides it will have a 10 episode run.
On May 4, 2018 we will get the culmination of the entire MCU up to this point with Avengers: Infinity War. We didn’t get a new trailer, but there is still this amazing video from a few months ago. What we did get, however, were two cool posters. After the events of Civil War, we still have Iron Man and Captain America on separate posters, but will this new fight bring them all together?
The last bit of MCU news is about Captain Marvel, which doesn’t come out until March 8, 2019. Because it is so far away, we don’t have much yet, but what we do have is the knowledge that it will be set in the ’90s, as well as Sam Jackson’s Nick Fury will definitely be in it.
Fox’s Marvel properties had some news as well.
During the panel for Legion, director Noah Hawley was quoted saying he was working with Fox on another character. “I’ll just say two words. The first word is ‘Doctor,’ and the next one is ‘Doom.’” Does this mean Doctor Doom will have his own show as well? Or is Hawley going to move up to make a movie? We know how well that has worked so far.
On October 2 we are supposed to get another show, related to Legion and the greater X-Men films called The Gifted. Here is the current trailer for that.
Lastly, IMDb presented its first ever Starmeter Lifetime Achievement Award to Stan Lee.
The next DCEU to begin filming is Shazam!. The only other news is how Dwayne Johnson will still be Black Adam in his own film, but not be in Shazam! at all. Meaning the first Shazam! movie won’t have his main villain. Much like how Luthor didn’t appear in Man of Steel, but he did in Batman v. Superman.
Wonder Woman 2 has officially been announced to begin pre-production. We have a while before we even start to hear about castings, but just to know that its happening is pretty awesome!
The announced Flash movie has a name Flashpoint, named after one of the most famous story lines in DC comics.
On September 28, we get Season 4 of Gotham.
On October 9, we get Season 3 of Supergirl.
On October 12, we get Season 6 of Arrow.
Ready Player One has a really cool trailer released as well, coming out March 30, 2018.
The 100 season 5 is coming soon, with no release date yet.
October 11, Season 2 of Riverdale comes out.
October 13 Supernatural season 13 will arrive.
