PCatt’s Comic-Con Roundup

San Diego Comic-Con is one of my favorite times of the year.  In my opinion, SDCC is a pop-culture holiday. Don’t let the convention name fool you. Although the event began with the concentration on comics (which it still technically is), Comic-Con is now known as a haven for exclusive content premieres, so I decided to round up some of the highlights.

  1. DC Comics

    • Suicide Squad 
      DC Comics had the entire Suicide Squad cast in Hall H including Will Smith (Deadshot), Jared Leto (The Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Adam Beach (Slipnot), Karen Fukuhara (Katana), & writer and director, David Ayer. They also brought a special soundtrack remix trailer to get the fans excited for the release of the film next week. If you couldn’t tell by my shirt I wore to SDCC, I’m pretty stoked for this film.Suicide-Squad-Comic-Con-Cast
    • Justice League
      This footage was a big surprise to fans, as the film is just now in production.  The “trailer” put together great clips, including some footage of Ezra Miller as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
    • Wonder Woman
      One of the great winners of Comic-Con was without a doubt the first ever clip of Gal Gadot kicking major ass as Wonder Woman.  If you are only going to watch one thing on this post, this is it.  The film also stars the forever dreamy, Chris Pine.
  2. Marvel

    • Spider-Man Homecoming
      • They showed a clip from the anticipated film featuring another new Spider-Man, Tom Holland. Unfortunately, the clip hasn’t been officially released by Marvel and I don’t want to post the bootleg footage. 278dd5865d8318c8f82930fde36a0b73d3d28a3798c16c6c43bbdb11035ec099-1
    • Doctor Strange
      Marvel released a second trailer for Doctor Strange. The film, which is headlined by the talented Benedict Cumberbatch, also stars Rachel McAdams and Tilda Swinton. Other highlights from Marvel Studios included a Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 trailer, the cast of Black Panther, and the official announcement of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. 
  3. Game of Thrones

    Although their isn’t much footage yet, as the greatest television show of all time hasn’t started much filming on Season 7 yet, the producers brought awesome clips of Season 6 bloopers as well as some teasing for Season 7.   Check the clips out below.

POKÉMON!

As expected Pokémon Go was a giant presence at Comic-Con, so much so that the Ninatic panel had to be moved to Hall H. That’s right the same hall as the giant production and movie companies above.

FYI, I’m still upset I still haven’t caught a Pikachu.

Until next year, Comic-Con!
