SDCC News Round Up

Hey Geek Pullsters!

What a week! Last weekend the international Comic Con delivered announcements that flooded left and right out of the always classy San Diego. So much so it could make your head spin. But fear not faithful readers! The hard working staff of Geek Pull has curated the biggest announcements for you all in one place. So without further ado, here is our list of all the SDCC announcements you need to know about.

DC / Warner Brothers


  • Justice League - The Warner Brother’s Panel did not disappoint. The cast showed up in full force to show off the newest Justice League Trailer.

  • Additionally, Warner Brothers revealed the future slate of the DCEU, including We see a video that reveals all of the upcoming slate! Including The Batman, Shazam!, Wonder Woman 2, Justice League Dark, Suicide Squad 2, GL Corps, The Flash: Flashpoint, and Batgirl.


  • Speaking of Flashpoint, Jeffery Dean Morgan, who played Thomas Wayne, in BVS, tweeted a picture of himself and Laura Cohan, Dean’s Walking Dead and BVS costar (she played Martha Wayne), just after the announcement, teasing fans about possible involvement.

  • If you watched the newest Justice League Trailer (we’ve linked it twice now so you have no reason not to), you heard Steppenwolf mention “No lanterns” on Earth (around the 1:36 mark), which, for those of you keeping score at home, counts as the first time the Green Lantern Corps have been referred to in the DCEU.





  • Additionally, after wrapping up DKIII - The Master Race, earlier this year, it DC announced that Frank Miller would be doing a Superman Year One style story. More coverage here.  


  • We also got some DC Animated Film news. Alongside confirmation of Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, and announcement of Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay (the first Animated film set within the DC Cinematic Universe) DC animation announced animated adaptations of the Death of Superman and Reign of the Supermen storylines in a more honest adaptation, than the previously released animated Death of Superman animated film.



  • Marvel Studio showed up in full force on Saturday at Comic Con. One of the biggest highlights was showing off a new Thor Ragnarok Trailer. You Can watch it here.


  • During Fox’s panel covering both Legion and the new series GIFTED, Legion showrunner Noah Hawley let loose that he was already at work on development for a Dr Doom Movie. You can read more about it at the Hollywood Reporter.

  • Speaking of Gifted, during SDCC a trailer was released for the upcoming TV series set loosely in the X-Men universe. Watch on Youtube here.




  • The Black Panther cast showed up in a big way at the Marvel Panel to talk about the Film. Although no new trailer was show a new poster for the film was released that you can view in all it’s epicness here.



  • It also got announced that a couple of DC alums have hoped on the Marvel Train. Michelle Pfipher (who played Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns) has been cast as the original Wasp in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-man sequel. Pfipher will also be joined by Lawerence Fishburne (who is also Perry White in the DC Cinematic Universe) as Bill Foster, a scientist who worked alongside Hank Pym before becoming Giant Man.




  • Oh, and lest you think we forgot to mention it: footage from Avengers Infinity War was shown on Saturday at SDCC (similar to the  footage that was shown at the D23 convention) and then was leaked online ( the footage seems to continue to be taken down ). There’s a lot to take in even with the poor quality. You can read a description of the footage here.  

Other Cool Geek News



  • The much anticipated adaptation of Ernest Cline’s “Ready Player One” got its first trailer at Comic Con. Steven Spielberg unveiled the first look at the film in Hall H on Saturday, and the filmmaker promised that the Iron Giant is a "real major player" in the sci-fi adaptation.


  • We don’t know if you’re love Netflix’s new Voltron Legendary defender as much as we do, but it sure seems like Comic Con does. At a panel discussing the show and the upcoming season, the creative team explained the motivation behind the new villain, hinted at the return of key character and answered questions from fans.
