Yes, it’s called Comic-Con, but these days, the biggest news out of the annual convention usually isn’t about comics. It’s about comic book-inspired (or at least influenced) film and television. Things change though. Ten years ago, movies dominated SDCC. Five years ago, television started taking over. Now, it’s a mix, leaning more into TV with a strong focus on streaming content. Since there’s a ton going on, we’ll pull out what we deem to be the most exciting movie, TV, and streaming panels of San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
Warner Bros, Sony and Universal might be sitting out San Diego Comic-Con 2019, but we still have plenty of amazing panels to be excited about — especially in regards to new television shows. We’ll be covering all of it from San Diego next week, but for those prepping their must-see lists, we’re counting down the 10 most exciting panels happening at SDCC this year.
The nominees for the Hugo Awards are here, honouring the best in 2018's comics, movies, TV shows, and other works. We’ve got some staples in genre fiction, like Black Panther and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, along with a few surprises—including the first time in Hugo history that a YouTube series has been nominated for an award.
Last week, I asked you — yes you — to tell me your favourite spaceship reveals in sci-fi and pop culture at large, that grand moment when an iconic ship comes into the scene for the very first time. And boy howdy, did you tell me about a lot of good spaceships.
I’ll take one slice of “anything we actually get to learn about The Expanse season 4” please.
But good news: You can while away the time you’ll spend waiting for it by being able to watch all three seasons so far on Amazon Prime Video, starting next month.
Every year we think there couldn’t be any more television, and again we are surprised. Before we reveal our best and worst shows of the year (those’ll come in a separate list), we want to take some time to honour the unique moments that made TV great, interesting, or baffling — and sometimes a bit unpleasant. Get ready for our best and worst TV moments of 2018.
All good dogs go to heaven, and all good shows get hot streaming revivals. Or, well, it worked out for The Expanse, anyway.
Spring means warmer days, shorter nights, and the first waves of panic about holiday shopping. We’ve already told you all about the films you might be interested in, but collected here — in a list that numbers nearly 100 entries — is the season’s vast array of sci-fi and fantasy books. Plus a few collections, memoirs and other genre-adjacent works which should help you conquer all.
The world of the Expanse novels is getting a whole new tabletop RPG early next year. In many ways, it's a return to the roots Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham's award-winning book series actually began as, well before the beloved television show.
But with Amazon stepping in, The Expanse will be back, and last week at San Diego Comic-Con, we got a chance to talk to showrunner Naren Shankar about what’s to come.
Henry Cavill is still pondering what could’ve been with Man of Steel 2. Another Rob Liefeld comic hero could be coming to the big screen. Dwayne Johnson says his Black Adam won’t appear in Shazam! Plus, what’s to come on The Originals, and a tiny sneak peek at the next season of The Expanse. Spoilers, go!
The Expanse recently wrapped up its third season with a thrilling two-part finale, making fans even more excited that the show survived its brief cancellation scare. Season four will surely bring awesome new stories, but season three - the sci-fi standout's strongest to date - will be hard to beat, and here's why.
The Expanse bid farewell to Syfy (ahead of its season-four shift to Amazon) with a two-part finale that contained everything that's made the show so fantastic over three seasons: killer space action, tense human conflict, and some perfectly-calibrated doses of hope, wonder, and mystery.
In the final moments of last week's Expanse, we saw a grenade blast inside the protomolecule-crafted sphere create a sudden shift within the Ring's void space. This week, on "Fallen World", we see just how devastating that disturbance really was - and its startling aftermath.
Within hours of Syfy cancelling The Expanse, diehard fans of the space opera swarmed the internet to make as much noise as they possibly could about why the show needed to be picked up by another network. Much to fans' delight, Amazon was listening.
