Marvel Comics let fly some awesome concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming after this year’s SDCC panel that confirms the Vulture as the villain for Tom Holland’s first major outing as the amazing web-slinger!
Fiction and Excerpts 
And the answer is WEIRD and just raises more questions. Are you ready to know?
Watch the new trailer for Doctor Strange, the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, out on November 4, 2016.
(Oh, and the wifi password is…well, you’ll see.)
Marvel Studios released a tidal wave of new information about its upcoming Phase 3 films, kicking off with some exciting casting announcements for 2018’s Black Panther.
This year’s San Diego Comic Con has brought the DC Cinematic Universe into full color, debuting an intense trailer for Wonder Woman, bringing out the Suicide Squad to taunt the audience, confirming Ben Affleck as the director for the next solo Batman film, and showing us our first, bright look at the Justice League!
The official poster was paired with a sizzle reel of footage shot so far from the film. Check it out below!
Preacher is smack in the middle of its debut season, but that didn’t stop the cast and crew from bringing a new trailer to San Diego Comic-Con that gives us a peek at the end of the season, and, you know, possibly the end of the world. Take a look!
(Does anyone know what kind of Pokemon are spawning near him? It’s booth #1514.)
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel at SDCC didn’t have any new footage to share, but they did have a big reveal for the audience: The upcoming season will feature Ghost Rider!
The motorcycle-riding spirit of vengeance has been hinted at in casting notices and, ah, the sides of trains, and now Marvel’s television arm has officially confirmed the presence of everyone’s favorite flaming skull. Considering how crazy the show got over the course of its third season, Ghost Rider should be a comfortable addition to the continuing calamities of Coulson and company. (Wordplay!)
Featuring the belenove…benelovip…the guys of Yunkai!
(Some spoilers for season 6.)
Nerdist hosted a lively panel called “Nerdist TV: The Boundary Pushers” with Bryan Fuller, late of Hannibal, and currently of hotly-anticipated Star Trek, and American Gods, his American Gods co-showrunner Michael Green, and Doctor Who and Sherlock‘s Steven Moffat. Moderator Alicia Lutes lead what sounds like a merry panel, and over the course of the conversation, Fuller dropped hints that Hannibal may be back sooner than we thought, and… asked Steven Moffat to write for Star Trek?!?
This year’s San Diego Comic Con will bring the usual barrage of updates on our favorite sci-fi/fantasy movies and TV shows, but even if you can’t get into Hall H there’s still a lot of REALLY weird new stuff to check out. Below is a short list of off-the-beaten-path panels to keep in mind while you wander the convention center!
It’s easy to ‘ship the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Cap and Falcon. They’ve shared too much screentime, and too many shy lopsided grins, to dissuade fans who’d rather consider them a couple. Over on Tumblr sashayed has just blown that ‘ship wide open. What started out as an idle curiousness over Cap’s running route in the beginning of Winter Soldier suddenly reveals: Steve Rogers had to purposefully be following Sam in order to meet him as many times as he does!
To hear the internet tell it, the recent sixth season of Game of Thrones was more exciting than the show has been since the Red Wedding. One of the methods the show used to obtain that momentum was by cutting out the length of each character’s journey through, around, and outside of Westeros. If Character A needed to travel hundreds of miles to go see Character B, for instance, then they’d be there in their next scene. In essence, Game of Thrones’ sixth season eschewed the geography of A Song of Ice and Fire in favor of having the characters travel at the speed of plot.
The Verge recently combined the character’s journeys in season 6 into a handy map, then rated the believability of each plotline on a scale of 1 to 10. They judge Brienne’s plotline as the most “actually possible” with everyone else falling into the realm of, well, fantasy. They don’t, however, calculate the actual time of each character’s season 6 journey, which would be interesting to know. How much time is compressed into season 6?
I love everything about this.
One of the very first classes I took in high school was a required English comp course, one that every student, including myself, was dreading. To break the ice on that nervous, greasy-eyed day in late 1996, the teacher asked each of us what movie we had most enjoyed seeing over the summer. Most of us answered: Independence Day. Sure, it was loud and simplistic, but we had never before seen entire cities being wiped out, never been able to conceptualize massive and realistic alien craft, never had to consider being confronted with such an inescapable threat until that movie came out.
I answered Independence Day, as well, of course. Not so much because of the spectacle, but because I loved imagining where the story could go after the ending. What would humanity do with all that new technology? Would we be able to live in harmony with the surviving aliens? Would the planetary alliance last beyond the great battle? Independence Day was fun, but I really wanted to know what came next after such a civilization-altering event.
I would have to wait twenty years.
