Everything That’s Coming (and Not Coming) to San Diego Comic-Con 2018

Ah, San Diego Comic-Con. Like Christmas morning for the nerds of the world. Every year we flock by the thousands to America’s Finest City to see all of the best announcements, trailers, and panels that pop culture has to offer. If you can brave the crowds and fend off the Con-Flu, it can be a truly magical experience that releases your inner geek in full force. For those who are attending the holy grail of comics, TV, movies, and more this year, below is your complete guide to all of the best panels and events. Be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back, as we’ll be updating frequently with more news of what’s to come! You can also check out the official Comic-Con website!

What’s Coming

Doctor Who Panel

This year’s Doctor Who panel will being formally introducing the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker! Her co-stars Tosin Cole (who plays Ryan) and Mandip Gill (who plays Yasmin), series showrunner Chris Chibnall, and executive producer Matt Stevens will all be joining as well.

Nightflyers Panel

Legendary Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin will be attending a panel for the television adaptation of his 1980 novella Nightflyersalong with executive producers Jeff Buhler and Gene Klein and star Jodie Turner-Smith. We’re looking forward to hearing more about Martin’s venture in the sci-fi genre.

Lucifer 

With the show recently being picked up by Netflix for a fourth season, Lucifer coming to SDCC feels almost like a celebration. We know that some of the cast and crew will be there, but the details of what they’ll be presenting are still unclear. Regardless, we’re looking forward to seeing them and celebrating their return!

Krypton

Another show from Syfy, Kryptonis making an appearance as well. The network just renewed it for a second season, and fans are eagerly awaiting more news of the story’s continuation.

DC Films

We hadn’t heard any news on whether DC would be returning until Aquaman director James Wan tweeted that the first trailer would be revealed at SDCC. Now that we know that DC is coming, some other projects to look out for are Lego Movie 2, the next Fantasic Beasts installment, Godzilla: King of Monsters, and Mowgli.

The Walking Dead Panel

Although we don’t have a ton of information yet on The Walking Dead‘s upcoming season, we do know that it will have a panel, which has basically become an annual tradition at this point. The show will most likely be premiering its ninth season later this year, and it’s supposedly the final season for stars Lauren Cohan and Andrew Lincoln.

Iron Fist

Marvel will be making themselves sparse at SDCC this year, but they will make an appearance for their Netflix series Iron Fist. The show is headed into its second season, and star Finn Jones will be attending along with other cast members and producers.

And What’s Not

Game of Thrones and Westworld

Neither of the two wildly popular HBO shows will be hosting a panel at SDCC this year. With Westworld‘s second season concluding only a few weeks before the convention, and with Game of Thrones in the middle of producing its heavily safeguarded eighth and final season, it doesn’t look like there will be anything for them to show fans. We’re pretty bummed about the lack of panels, but on the bright side it means that there is more content on the horizon!

Marvel

Yup, you read that right. While Marvel usually dominates at the event, they won’t be making an appearance at SDCC this year. According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, this is mostly because they’re not planning on announcing any more movies until after Avengers 4 is out. At least we have Captain Marvel, a Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 to look forward to, right?
