There is a palpable buzz in the air that can be felt the whole world over, an excitement unrivaled by any other time of year. One full of hope, expectation and wishful thinking. A time when dreams come true and people come together in joy and happiness. Christmas doesn’t even come close to this. I am of course talking about the extravaganza that is San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).
With thousands of lucky comic book fans arriving in San Diego for what is quite simply a pilgrimage of the masses. The world looks on with baited breath to see just what announcements will be made. What trailers and teasers will we see? What bounty will the gods of Geekdom bestow upon the legendary Hall H this year?
In the true tradition of a geek with an internet connection and a platform to speak from I shall give my predictions for this years reveals from Hall H
I expect Marvel will have a very strong showing at SDCC this year. on the back of an enticing D23 Expo in Anaheim. We already know that the lucky fans in attendance there were treated to footage of the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War so I expect to see that footage shown again although I suspect that will just be exclusively for the Hall H faithful.
It is possible that on the back of DC success with Wonder woman Marvel may treat us to some Captain Marvel footage that will hopefully be released online.
There is a strong possibility we will see some footage from the upcoming Deadpool 2 due for a super hero landing on June 1
Footage I think we are guaranteed to see both in Hall H and then online will be a new trailer for Thor: Ragnarok which releases on November 3rd 2017 and Black Panther which is out on February 16th 2018
Warner Bros / DC
At this years SDCC, there is no separate DC presentation which is strange. Instead, they have opted to throw everything under the Warner Bros. banner. It will be nailed on that we will see more footage and a new trailer for DC ensemble movie Justice League which is scheduled for a November 17th release and possibly some footage of the upcoming December release of AquaMan
Although the trailer for BladeRunner 2049 dropped earlier this week I think we can expect to see a few teaser shots or maybe an extended trailer.
Netflix is holding a Stranger Things panel this year to bring us some more information on the much anticipated season 2 that is due to arrive in October. There isn’t much guessing to do here since the producers have already promised some never seen before footage and I have no doubt Netflix will put the footage online as soon as it is released.
San Diego Comic Con is a massive event and will no doubt have us wrapped up in discussions for weeks to come but for now why not let us know what you are most looking forward to by using the comment section below
