Another Comic-Con has come and gone. The funny thing is, I was in San Diego during it, and didn’t actually attend any of the festivities.
If you’re anything like me, then, the internet’s been a godsend for news. Here are some of the highlights that happened this weekend!
Warner Brothers & DC
DC continued to change face in the wake of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s lukewarm reception. The venerable publisher rolled out trailers for Wonder Womanand Justice League, showcasing both films’ humour and spectacle. They also showed off another trailer for Suicide Squad, which opens in ten days, and some new footage from Injustice 2.
Other than that, there were mainly just casting and design announcements. Kurt Russell will apparently play a planet with a penis in Guardians of the Galaxy. The 20-something Brie Larson will play the 30/40-something Captain Marvel, which is pretty bogus. At least we have Black Panther to look forward to, with an all-star cast that now includes Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.
Cult classic Ergo Proxy will also be re-released this year. The brooding cyberpunk anime celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. No release specifics have been revealed. It’s safe to assume, though, that Funi will do something special.
