San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is over. But the magic will live on in our hearts. As well as our posts! Here, for your convenience, dear readers, is absolutely everything we published relating to this year’s Comic-Con.
During Freeform's Cloak & Dagger panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel's Jeph Loeb took to the stage with some news that delighted the attending fans of the Lousiana-based heroes. Cloak & Dagger will return to Freeform for a second season next spring following the show's massive ratings success for the network.
We knew Fox's excellent X-Men series The Gifted was set to return for a second season. Now we have our first look thanks to San Diego Comic-Con.
We got our first look at the upcoming new season of Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist at Comic-Con today, and it looks... surprisingly good.
The last season of The Flash concluded with one hell of a shocker: The mysterious future girl who had been cropping up all season was actually Nora Allen, Barry and Iris' future child. And now Team Flash has a yet another mess of time travel shenanigans to deal with.
If you thought the Legends had screwed up time before, well now they've really gone and done it. The first trailer for the fourth season of The CW's Legends of Tomorrow has arrived via Comic-Con and John Constantine (Matt Ryan) is here to help our favourite not-losers take on the magic kingdom.
The cast of Supergirl came to this year's San Diego Comic-Con to present a brief glimpse at the impending alien invasion that will shake National City to its core, but soon after the Con-exclusive sizzle reel ended, the show's newest cast member made a surprise appearance on stage and announced an important moment in TV history.
The last season of Arrow concluded with Oliver making a surprising sacrifice (especially to his poor wife Felicity) - trading immunity for the rest of Team Arrow for publicly revealing that he really is the Green Arrow and a lifetime in gaol. Now, we've got a look at how the team will move on without Oliver... for now at least.
When Krypton returns for its second season, it's going to be bringing with it some familiar faces, along with some deep cuts from far back in the DC Comics universe.
Young Justice fans were happily surprised to hear Warner Bros. would be continuing the animated series from Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti after its supposed end back in 2013. At Comic-Con today we learned more about what to expect from the unexpected third season, which is set to air on the newly-revealed DC Universe streaming service.
Video: If you’ve ever wanted to hear Robin say “Fuck Batman” before knocking the hell out of and killing a couple of street-level criminals, then allow us to show you the very first trailer for DC Universe’s upcoming live-action Titans series. Suffice to say that Teen Titans Go!, this is not.
Thought that Titans trailer was the only DC Universe show we’d be hearing about today? Think again. Geoff Johns just revealed one of his myriad upcoming projects is a show based around Justice Society of America superhero Stargirl.
Science Fiction and Fantasy
The first trailer for the next season of Star Trek. Discovery looked surprisingly fun - especially when compared to the often-fatally bleak first season. It was full of cute jokes, great character moments and late-1990s rock jams. So, where did this newfound levity come from? According to the showrunner, you can thank the first Star Trek TV series for that.
Star Trek. Discovery’s debut season concluded with a shocking blast from the franchise’s past. The original series’ Enterprise, face-to-face with Burnham and the crew of the Discovery. And now, we get to re-meet Captain Pike and Starfleet’s most iconic vessel.
Video: We’ve seen little bits here and there of Amazon and the BBC’s adaptation of the beloved Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and the dearly missed Terry Pratchett. But while Comic-Con didn’t give us a trailer, it did let us peek behind the curtain to see the novel’s fantastical mishmash of Angels and Demons come to life, plus a new bit of casting.
The Doctor herself is attending the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con and she's doing so much more than just giving us a spectacular first look at the next season of Doctor Who. She's doing that and making it fashionable, in the most delightful way.
Bobcat Goldthwait is maybe not the first name you associate with satirical genre tales. Don’t let that turn you off the very funny, very weird Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters.
Hollywood legend Robert Zemeckis has a few projects at this year’s Comic-Con. One is Project Blue Book, a retro UFO drama for the History Channel that looks pretty promising. But we’ve seen the first episode of Manifest, the NBC series he produced, and it’s overwrought in all the worst ways.
It’s been a full year since Netflix announced that it would be adapting My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and illustrator Gabriel Bá’s Dark Horse comic series. Now it’s finally revealed the cast in all their superhero glory — OK, they revealed a very small portion of all their superhero glory, but we like what we see.
When CW announced that it was rebooting Charmed, the choice was met with a bit of confusion — and even some hostility — from fans of the original series. Based on the pilot shown at Comic-Con, I have a feeling those fears are going to subside once fans get to know the new Charmed Ones.
Video: We’ve seen her outfit. We’ve seen her TARDIS. We’ve had teasers. But the time has come for an all-new, and historic, incarnation of the cosmos’ favourite Time Lord. The very first trailer for Doctor Who season 11 is finally here!
The Orville's first season wrapped up back in December and it'll be December again before we see any new episodes. But Seth MacFarlane's Star Trek-inspired sci-fi comedy showed up at Comic-Con with an early peek at season two for its fans - including this extended trailer.
Ah, small town life. What with its watering holes, simple ambitions, young love... Not to mention the serial killers, dark conspiracies, and, uh... what looks very, very much like human sacrifice. At least, if you’re in Riverdale.
Bill Skarsgård became a horror icon thanks to his portrayal of Pennywise in last year’s horror hit It, a role he’ll reprise in the sequel next year. In between, he’s got another sinister turn in another Stephen King-inspired tale, Castle Rock. But as the actor explains, the characters couldn’t be more different.
We all know the big names behind Hulu's Castle Rock - Stephen King, J.J. Abrams - but at Comic-Con, we got a chance to talk to its co-creators, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason. Of course, they couldn't reveal too many secrets, but we did learn more about what to expect from the new series.
So far, the marketing for Castle Rock - the J.J. Abrams-produced Hulu show that's set in Stephen King's sinister vision of small-town Maine - has been appropriately eerie and deliberately mysterious.
There are a lot of things in flux for AMC’s The Walking Dead, which premieres in October. Sure, Negan has been defeated on the show, and it looks as though the survivors will finally live in peace. Spoiler. As the new Comic-Con trailer reveals, they won’t. But the real drama is behind the scenes.
Video: With Negan and the Saviors defeated, the other three communities at peace and working together, and even a chance to rebuild rather than just survive, life has literally never been better for Rick Grimes, at least since the zombie apocalypse began. How long will it last, though? The show’s season nine trailer has the answer. Almost no time at all.
Video: If you haven't watched Fear the Walking Dead in a while, this new trailer is going to be surprising. The first half of the fourth season started with a big change and it's just getting more and more permanent. Many of the characters are new. Kim Dickens' main character Madison is gone. There's a much grittier, grosser vibe.
Video: We’ve already had more than a few glimpses at Syfy’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s classic sci-fi horror novella Nightflyers, promising plenty of spookiness. But our latest look is definitely the biggest, and it’s legitimately haunting.
YouTube Red is getting into sci-fi with its newest series Origin, and it looks as though it’s trying to give Syfy’s Nightflyers a run for its money. It’s actually a horror story set on an isolated ship, where passengers who were trying to escape their past are faced with an unknown entity. It’s a cool premise — although unfortunately, I’m a little iffy about the outcome.
When last we saw Stan Against Evil’s titular curmudgeon (John C. McGinley), things were looking awfully apocalyptic in Willard’s Mill. At the press room and panel for the IFC horror-comedy at Comic-Con, we learned a lot more about what to expect from season three, starting with this trailer.
In 2016, Cartoon Network launched a short animated film called Infinity Train as part of its pilot program and it quickly became a viral hit. And yet, it would take another two years for the channel to finally confirm it would turn the short into a full series. Now, we have an intriguing first look.
The upcoming fantasy animated series from Simpsons creator Matt Groening drops next month. And as you'd expect, Netflix showed off the official trailer at Comic-Con.
Steven Universe's Garnet, Teen Titans' Raven, And More Join Forces For an Epic OK K.O. Crossover Special
OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes is about to get even more, uh, heroic, because some of Cartoon Network's best and brightest are going to be joining the characters in a special television event.
The moment we heard that Avatar. The Last Airbender head writer Aaron Ehasz was working with Netflix on a new fantasy animated series, we were intrigued. And now we have a first look at it in action and there's a lot more going on than we could've first imagined.
Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar and the rest of the Crystal Gems came to this year's San Diego Comic Con with an all new episode of Steven Universe teasing what's in store store for Steven in the next arc of their epic adventures and well, the last of the Diamonds (and her Princess Leia-inspired Pearl) is finally going to make her long-teased debut.
A thing I have said at least three times today to the Gizmodo staff, apropos of nothing. The new DuckTales cartoon is really, really good. Now I have proof, thanks to this preview of the rest of the show's first season which debuted earlier today at - where else? - Comic-Con.
After what feels like aeons of waiting, a real good look at The Venture Bros.’ seventh season is finally here — and there’s changes afoot for everyone. New alliances! New foes! Demonic robots! Hank, actually maybe having a successful relationship! It’s all happening, and it’s all happening very soon.
All adventures have to end, and this one looks as though it’s going out with a full-scale war.
You can’t keep a good alien dead set on world domination down, even if he’s a bad alien who is in fact very bad at world domination. Because Invader Zim is finally returning to TV in a brand-new movie titled Enter the Florpus.
It’s always fantastic when a TV show comes to Comic-Con not only with news to announce, but also with a full-on episode to screen for attending fans. The Voltron. Legendary Defender team gets this, and this year, they came correct in the best way possible.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, coming to Nickelodeon in the US September 17, reunites Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo to fight new enemies with a brand new style, a shockingly overqualified voice cast, and a brand new trailer, too.
Marvel was, in fact, in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Only, it wasn't Marvel Studios teasing the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was Deadpool making its triumphant return since debuting the first footage from the first film back in 2015. And the return did not disappoint.
The first trailer for Venom gave us, well, very little actual Venom. The second had a much better look at Sony’s take on the creepy Marvel anti-hero. Sony came to Comic-Con today to give us a tiny glimpse at what’s in store to attendees, and a frightful new villain for Eddie Brock and his symbiote friend to tussle with.
Everything we’ve seen of Into the Spider-Verse so far has been utterly spectacular — and at San Diego Comic-Con, we just got even more. Miles Morales is in for a hell of a ride alongside his new best friends Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy... and there could be a few more Spider-Pals on the way.
One of the biggest Batman stories of the modern era is coming to animation. Batman. Hush, the storyline created by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee in 2002 and 2003, is getting the cartoon film treatment as a DC Universe Original Movie.
After Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League, all of which exist in the same universe, Shazam! looks like it's going to be a breath of fresh air for the DC Extended Universe. Very happy, very silly fresh air.
As part of their massive Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday, Warner Bros. revealed a first look at the still in production Wonder Woman 1984. It's unfortunately not going online but we were there and can tell you all about it.
The Man of Steel still dies in the new Death of Superman animated movie. The biggest surprise in the film is how he lives his life before Doomsday takes him out.
If Godzilla is truly the King of the Monsters, then surely he needs a few monsters to fight to earn his title, right?
In The New Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Trailer, Danger Is Brewing For Wizards And Muggles
As popular as the Harry Potter films are, they oddly were never much of a mainstay at Comic-Con. That's changed with the new Fantastic Beasts franchise, though, as the second film, The Crimes of Grindewald, arrived with a new trailer to dazzle the crowds.
New footage from Bumblebee revealed at Comic-Con today showed us more about why the Transformer is on Earth, what he’s doing in the 1980s, and who he’ll be fighting in his solo spin-off movie. Unfortunately, it appears the video is solely for Comic-Con attendees, but we can tell you everything we saw.
It isn’t what we expected in the panel about the new movie in the incredibly violent slasher franchise. But we also didn’t expect a man to tell star Jamie Lee Curtis that her performance in the original Halloween saved his life during the Q&A, either.
Video: Eighteen years after we first met the unbreakable David Dunn and the extremely breakable Elijah Price, they’re back in the first trailer for M. Night Shyalaman’s Glass, and this time they have Kevin Crumb and his 23 personalities with them.
If there's one name that's become synonymous with stop-motion animation, it's Laika. The Oscar-winning animation studio has brought us iconic films like Coraline, ParaNorman and Kubo and the Two Strings. As they prepare for their latest venture, Missing Link, Laika has brought its best animators to San Diego Comic-Con to show us exactly how they bring these stories to life. And now... we're going to show you, too.
The 2018 Comic-Con has officially begun, and it’s venerable, enormous Hall H opened its doors to showcase The Predator. Shane Black, best known for writing Lethal Weapon and directing Iron Man 3, was one of the original writers on the first Predator film. Now he’s back directing its latest instalment, and he popped by Comic-Con to debut a few new scenes.
Well, “new” as in “new to recent horror cinema”. The monster in question has actually been spawning nightmares for generations, as we learned at New Line’s “ScareDiego” horror presentation at Comic-Con. And, of course, we also caught up with It’s Pennywise and the glowering star of The Nun.
Comics and Books
Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez-Walta and Jordie Bellaire's The Vision was a landmark series for the Android Avenger and Marvel at large. And now, following in its footsteps is a brand new series from Chelsea Cain, Marc Mohan and Aud Koch.
Comic-Con may dazzle with swanky merchandise and big movie and TV trailers, but it’s still home to the biggest awards event in comics: The Eisners, a celebration of the best and brightest creative teams around. This year is no exception, and here’s the complete list of winners of this week's prestigious awards.
The canonical understanding of the Dark Knight is that Bruce Wayne hates guns. This spring, DC Comics is going to introduce a new, evil Batman who doesn’t have that problem. At all.
The Star Wars printed universe marches on, with comics and books covering the whole timeline, including the franchise’s first major return to the prequel era since Disney restarted the canon back in 2014.
The Green Lantern comics have gotten rather epic in scale recently, with Earth’s Lanterns and the corps at large dealing with cataclysmic threats to the DC cosmos on a regular basis. But the new relaunch of the series is bringing the scope down back to regular old space-cop business, and Hal Jordan is once again the focus.
DC has announced that DC Ink and DC Zoom, their newest comic imprints aimed at teens and those a bit younger, will be releasing a lot of new graphic novels, with a heavy focus on the ladies of the DC universe — including often overlooked yet awesome ex-Batgirl Cassandra Cain. Nice!
Over the past couple of years Comixology has slowly become a growing home for original comics, beyond the oodles of digital series it already sells from other publishers such as Marvel and DC. Earlier this year it announced a new line of creator-owned original series under the Comixology Originals banner, and now even more are on the way.
Video: Yet another major villain is making their way into the life of Peter Parker in the already villain-packed upcoming Spider-Man PS4 video game. But it turns out Spidey’s ready to fight back against the oncoming rogues — in the form of a new pal named Miles Morales.
Video: The newest trailer for LEGO DC Super-Villains has arrived, which will star a custom-created supervillain of the player’s choice alongside DC’s deep catalogue of bodacious bad guys.
In one of the more fun, tongue-in-cheek installations at San Diego Comic-Con this year, Marvel Studios has been offering help for fans who were “traumatised” by tragic end of Avengers: Infinity War, and emotional support for those “devastated” by the loss of (half of) their favourite superheroes.
Video: The big show is on! Comic-Con officially began this week in San Diego, and we're there to experience it first-hand and bring you all the fun. Our own Beth Elderkin and Germain Lussier took a stroll around the show floor on Preview Night to give you a sneak peak at what to expect.
Toys & Collectables
Sony brought the gorgeous-looking Spider-Man. Into the Spider-Verse to Comic-Con with news that Miles, Gwen and Peter would be joined by even more Spider-heroes—but because the footage was never put online, we never got to see them. Thankfully Hasbro showed up with some upcoming action figures from the movie to make up for it.
Hasbro took to Comic-Con this week to lift the lead on some of its latest toys from both the world of Marvel and a galaxy far, far away—and if you loved Star Wars Rebels and Black Panther, boy is your wallet in for a pummelling.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our weekly round up of all things toy. This week, we’re shipping ourselves off to San Diego and staying in a cramped convention hall with tons of new announcements... and a few toys that slipped out earlier in the week. Plus, Mario Kart Hot Wheels, the Golden Girls(!), and so much more!
A new Doctor on Doctor Who means new everything. New monsters, new best friends, new TARDISes and new gear. That includes a new Sonic Screwdriver, the Doctor’s jack-of-all-trades technological device — and while we got a very tiny flash of it in the new trailer today, we now have a great look at its very unusual visage.
It’s been teased for a good while now that Jason Momoa’s look in Aquaman would evolve from, well, shirtless Jason Momoa and into a suit that’s inspired by the classic look Arthur Curry has in the comics. But now we actually have a chance to get a better look at it, courtesy of a brand new line of statues unveiled by DC at Comic-Con.
San Diego Comic-Con is now in full swing, and cosplayers are bringing their A-game in celebration of their favourite shows, films and comics. Check out this video and photo collection showing off some of our favourite finds from Wednesday and Thursday. We have My Hero Academia villains, Ms Marvel, and of course... Iron Spider-Dog? Enjoy!
