Written by Asia

July 24, 2016


In case you haven’t been browsing the internet the past few days or is not be into this kind of fandom, it’s still impossible not to wind of any news about this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the biggest pop culture and geek convention in the world which officially started last Wednesday, July 20 and ends on Sunday (US time). While a 100,000 plus people are currently soaking up the awesomeness of the ongoing event, here’s for us who wants to know some of the juiciest and most hyped TV series, movie, comics, gaming, entertainment reveals so far (or anything geeky, really) in the 2016 SDCC:


1) ‘Star Trek Beyond‘ makes its world premiere in SDCC with the biggest lights and sounds (literally) through fireworks and a big LED screen set-up for an outdoor movie screening. Fans got to experience the movie with the whole Star Trek cast watching with them. Isn’t that amazing?

2) New ‘Suicide Squad’ movie trailers featuring the wild DC Couple– Joker and Harley Quinn:

3) 80’s kids rejoice as a classic mecha gets a reboot in ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’. Created by Netflix and DreamWorks Animation, this new and original animated series debuted just last June 10 in Netflix (obviously) and is announced to get a second season which will be released within Fall. It’s just too bad for countries without Netflix access though! (Pro tip: VPN!)

4) The Marvel and Netflix partnership continues to expand its hit series for different superhero characters! Blind superhero/vigilante ‘Daredevil’ (played by actor Charlie Cox) gets more action as it gets a green light to have its third season.

They also announced another show featuring a character with unbreakable skin and superhuman strength… ‘Luke Cage’ (played by actor Mike Colter) the “hero-for-hire” and husband to other Marvel character/ current Netflix show Jessica Jones.

Along with Luke Cage, vague trailers for ‘The Defenders’ and ‘Iron Fist’ was also revealed. Can you see a pattern here?!

Here’s a compiled trailer for all of them:

5) MTV’s hit series ‘Teen Wolf’ announces that the show will end on its 100th episode in Season 6. Awww, too bad for the fans… but they did give a sneak peek for the final season!

6) Actress Gal Gadot excites fans after uploading in her twitter account the first look of the ‘Wonder Woman’ movie poster. After hyping her in the Batman vs Superman movie, Summer of 2017 just can’t come fast enough!


7) ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 trailer is out!!! Need we say more except “aaaaccckkk who is it!?!?”

8) For those who haven’t read Neil Gaiman’s best selling novel ‘American Gods’, well it’s about God-d**n time you do. A story of long forgotten gods living in the modern world, fans were thrilled to see the trailer finally revealed.

Watch it here:

9) The fight for the seven kingdoms just keeps getting better! Although there is no specific trailer on the upcoming storyline yet, HBO teases their fans with a unique video for ‘Game of Thrones’ through a peek at the production for its seventh season.

10) The panel for ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ announces that the Ghost Rider will be appearing on the show when it returns for its fourth season on September 20. Unlike the movie version where Johnny Blaze (played by actor Nicholas Cage) is the Ghost Rider, Shield will feature Robbie Reyes, a highschool student from Los Angeles who was involved in a street race gone wrong which will eventually cause him to become the Ghost Rider in a black muscle car. Reyes will be played by actor Gabriel Luna.



The list will get longer with two more days of the event happening! More #SDCC2016 updates soon!
