Comic-Con week is finally here! Whether you’re able to attend or will be following online, there’s a lot for geeks of all kinds to get excited about: cosplay, movie trailers, TV previews, unexpected announcements, cool swag and—oh yeah! Comic books!
That’s right, even though they’ve become more overshadowed by their silver-screen counterparts, there are still comic books at San Diego Comic Con. The show remains one of the biggest platforms for publishers to get lots of eyeballs on their upcoming projects, and most of the bigger companies have panels dedicated to big announcements for flagship projects heading to shops later in the year. The Big Two — Marvel and DC — often are seen as competing with one another over who can drop the biggest announcement bombshells. So what might we expect from them this year?
We’ll begin by looking at some announcements we hope Marvel will be making this week, ranging from likely bets to desperate hopes. Marvel made a lot of announcements about their fall lineup last week (some unintentionally), but they are almost certainly holding back on a few surprises for the big show. Is there anything you’re hoping to hear about from Marvel at SDCC? Think ours are wildly off base? Let us know in the comments below.
