San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is now its third day, and the news just keeps on rolling in. Today we've had trailers for Aquaman, Shazam, and Godzilla: King of Monsters. But the event is about more than just big reveals; in fact, one of the best parts of the show is seeing the passion fans have for movies, comics, TV, games, and more. Walking the halls of Comic-Con, this passion is most obviously manifested in cosplay, and it's hard not to stop and marvel at some of the fantastic costumes that people put together to show their love.We've been snapping pictures of our favourite costumes every day of Comic-Con so far, and have seen characters from Iron Man, Game of Thrones, Moana, Mega Man, and Batman, among others. And Saturday has been no different, with each of those franchises and more strongly represented once again, along with Silver Surfer, Pokemon, Static Shock, and Lord Zedd.For those looking to catch-up on some of the news, we've put together a list of our Comic-Con coverage highlights below for a quick and easy way to get up to speed. Big news includes a brand-new trailer for Preacher Season 3, which sounds like it's going to get even more gruesome and stomach-churning in the remaining episodes.Cloak and Dagger fans can also look forward to seeing more of Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, as the superhero duo will return for a second season. With just two episodes...
The 1993 movie Demolition Man is a science-fiction masterpiece, if you ask the staff of GameSpot Universe. We discuss the inner-workings of John Spartan, Simon Phoenix, and the world of San Angeles way more than anyone in their right minds should. So when Taco Bell announced that it would have a pop-up restaurant at Comic-Con, recreating the Taco Bell scene from the movie, we had to go, and it was the best activation we'd ever participated in the history of the show.As you may know, according to Demolition Man lore, Taco Bell was the sole survivor of the Franchise Wars. Companies engaged in corporate warfare and buyouts until Taco Bell was the only restaurant left. All restaurants in Demolition Man became Taco Bell. In the movie, John Spartan--who was recently unfrozen from his cyro-prison--visited Taco Bell with his partner Lenina Huxley to have dinner with Dr. Raymond Cocteau, the creator of the peaceful society San Angeles.There are lots of notable things about the Taco Bell scene in Demolition Man alone, from the tiny portions of vegan food to MTV Sports' Dan Cortese playing piano and singing the commercial for "Green Giant." And at Comic-Con, Taco Bell created a restaurant that could have been one of the many Taco Bells around San Angeles.Additionally, GameSpot spoke with Matt Prince, who works as public relations and brand management at Taco Bell about the insane activation and how it came to be.San Diego Comic-Con 2018 CoverageComic-Con...
We're partway into summer, and that means it's time for San Diego Comic-Con 2018. The specifics of what's on display may be different for 2018, but as always, the show remains the year's big event for revealing news and trailers for movies, TV shows (Clone Wars!), comics, and even some video games. And because SDCC is an event that's open the public--including the most hardcore fans of those aforementioned properties--you likely already know it's home to a ton of incredible cosplay.SDCC 2018 has only just begun, but we've already seen a tremendous amount of excellent cosplay. Attendees came out dressed as their favorite characters from a wide variety of games, comics, and movies, and we've gathered together a selection of the best from Day 1 for you to peruse above.You'll find Marvel's big-name heroes, like Iron Man and Gamora, as well as slightly more eccentric characters from the company's roster, like Thor Ragnarok's Grandmaster. Game of Thrones was represented by the likes of the Night King, while on the video game side, we got Team Fortress 2's Pyro and company. There's quite a variety, so check out all of our photos and stay tuned for more--we've since published compilations of the best cosplay from Day 2 and for Marvel overall.Thursday featured more than just cosplay, though. There were panels for some big-name series, including a 10th anniversary panel for Breaking Bad that brought some exciting news for Better Call Saul fans....
At San Diego Comic-Con, DC Entertainment announced a new publishing imprint called DC Black Label. The label will only mark certain stories, each created by DC Comics' most prominent writers and artists. They'll bring edgy and provocative standalone stories to the legends of DC's greatest heroes and villains. For starters, the label is focusing on stories centered around Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
"Creating DC Black Label doubles down on our commitment to working with all-star talent and trusting them to tell epic, moving stories that only they can tell with the highest levels of creative freedom," said publisher Jim Lee. And freedom those writers and artists will have. Series that run under the DC Black Label won't be restricted to a specific format, release schedule, or canon.
When it comes to DC Black Label, creative vision is most important. Writers will be free to write stories that contradict The New 52 or Rebirth, and artists can reimagine heroes and villains with designs that have never been seen before. DC Entertainment has six books planned for the first wave of DC Black Label titles: Superman: Year One, Batman: Last Knight on Earth, Batman: Damned, Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons, Wonder Woman: Diana's Daughter, and The Other History of the DC Universe.
Frank Miller and John Romita Jr. are on Superman: Year One, which promises to be a groundbreaking reimagining of Superman's classic origin story. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo...
Taking a beloved manga property and translating it to an western audience for the big screen can be quite the task. This is what 20th Century Fox is trying to accomplish with its December 21 film Alita: Battle Angel. During San Diego Comic Con, director Robert Rodriguez and producer Jon Landau showed off almost 20 minutes of the film at a panel. Additionally, attendees got an early look at the trailer, which will be released worldwide on Monday, July 23 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.
Before the event began, Landau and Rodriguez discussed how the manga, called Gunnm in Japan, got the Hollywood treatment by James Cameron and why it took so long to develop this movie. Cameron switched focus, years ago, to Avatar, which Landau explained was good in the long run for Alita as technology, 3D effects, and filming have become advanced enough to properly realize the story for the big screen.
While a lot of the controversy surrounding Alita deals with the titular character's look, more specifically how large her eyes are compared to other cyborgs in the film, Robert Rodriguez explained a bit more why she looks like that. James Cameron's vision, since he obtained the rights to the property, was to bring manga to life. Rodriguez explained that he wanted the look of what's on the page...
CW's Arrow is returning for a seventh season this fall, and at San Diego Comic-Con, fans got a sneak peek at what's happening to Oliver Queen this year. During the Arrow panel, lots of information was revealed about returning characters, new villains, and and how Ollie's world is being turned upside down.
In the new video, which you can see above, Oliver Queen is doing some time in Slabside Maximum Security Prison but old foes are resurfacing. Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Derek Sampson (Cody Runnels), and Danny Brickwell (Vinnie Jones) are making Queen's stint in the clink tougher than it needs to be. These are all villains Arrow put in prison, and of course, they're going to try and get revenge in any way possible. "One scene in the premiere, what Oliver does is reprehensible," star Stephen Amell explained during the panel. He went on to say he hopes fans hate what he does.
Additionally, a group of villains whose main purpose is to take down Arrow emerges in this season. They're called The Longbow Hunters, and the team is made up of Red Dart (Holly Elissa), Kodiak (Michael Jonsson) and Silencer (Miranda Edwards). This team is recruited by Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), who wants revenge after Arrow took him down in Season 6. Terror is coming from all sides for Arrow and his companions this year.
This season will have a new shorunner, Beth Schwartz, who previously wrote episodes of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. Colton Haynes, who plays...
The new trailer for Netflix's upcoming anime, The Dragon Prince, debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer teases the overall plot of the show, and introduces the three main characters of the animated series.
The Dragon Prince tells the story of two human princes, Callum and his brother Ezran. The new trailer hints at a simmering conflict between their people and the elves which erupts into something larger at the start of the series. This convinces the elves to send an assassin, named Rayla, to kill the two princes. Instead, the three decide to ally with one another and embark on a quest to find a way to unite their people and bring peace to the land.
The majority of the attention that The Dragon Prince is getting can probably be traced back to the reputation of the man behind the anime's story: Aaron Ehasz. Ehasz is responsible for writing the widely popular Avatar: The Last Airbender and fans are excited to see him helm another mystical fantasy series. Another The Last Airbender veteran, Giancarlo Volpe, a former director for Avatar, is The Dragon Prince's executive producer.
The Dragon Prince will be available on Netflix on September 14. It's not the only anime that is coming to Netflix this year either. We'll be getting a second season of Castlevania this October.
At Anime Expo, Netflix announced that the streaming service will premier Ultraman and Kengan Ashura in 2019. Ultraman is based on the classic Japanese sci-fi series about a seemingly...
If The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, or the whole franchise is your guilty pleasure, you'll be excited to know that the CW is launching yet another spinoff based on the events of both shows called Legacies. The trailer recently premiered at Comic-Con.
If you recall, The Originals started off because Klaus, one of the original vampires who was a vampire/werewolf hybrid, got a girl pregnant. This meant that the kid would be born a vampire, a werewolf, and the grandchild of one of the most powerful witches who ever lived.
Now, that child is a teenager, and she has little control over her many powers, so she is heading off to the Salvatore academy (as in the Salvatore brothers from The Vampire Diaries), which helps supernatural teens get their powers, and their urges, under control. The academy is lead by Alaric Saltzman, a teacher who was a recurring character on The Vampire Diaries and managed to stay human.
The trailer gives a pretty good look at the story the show will follow. The characters get involved with the locals and use their abilities, not always in a good way. The trailer also features the same voice-over style that was used for the other two shows, which is a nice way to give it a sense of continuity. Legacies will premiere October 25 on the CW.

If you were a kid in the early 2000s, you probably saw the red-headed teenager sporting a beeper and going from cheerleading to fighting crime in a matter of minutes. The show went off the air in 2007, but now, Kim Possible is getting a live-action movie, and the film made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con.
Disney Channel's presentation focused on the upcoming television adaptation of Big Hero 6, Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley are producing the show. However, they also the created Kim Possible and they're writing the new movie, so it makes sense that they had something to share about the project at Comic-Con.
Sadie Stanley will portray the crime fighting teenager, and many of the original characters from the show will be appearing on the big screen. Best friend Ron Stoppable will be played by Sean Giambore, Isaac Ryan Brown will play tech wiz Wade and Kim Possible's arch enemies, Dr. Drakken and Shego, will be played by Todd Stashwick and Taylor Ortega, respectively.
There isn't much information about the plot yet, but they did release the first photo of Stanley in costume as Kim possible and she's really rocking those combat boots.
The live-action adaptation of Kim Possible is set to premiere in 2019, let's cross our fingers that this is going to be good.

Mega Man: Fully Charged is an upcoming animated series based on Capcom's Mega Man video game franchise. A new trailer for the show premiered at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, giving us an extended look at the series' protagonist and the type of threats he'll face.
Mega Man: Fully Charged will follow the adventures of Aki Light, a robotic boy who can transform into the hero Mega Man. Aki protects Silicon City from the villainous Sgt. Night and his Robot Masters, a group of evil robots that Mega Man fans will recognize from the games. Mega Man's friends from the games, like Rush the dog, pop up in the show too, and new allies like Mega Mini will also offer Aki support. Not that it looks like he'll need it, as the new trailer for Fully Charged shows that this version of Mega Man still has the ability to absorb and use the weapons and abilities of the robots he defeats.
Mega Man: Fully Charged is scheduled to premier on Cartoon Network on August 5. The series is 26 episodes long, making it much longer than the Mega Man Star Force animated series that aired on Cartoon Network back in 2007.
Mega Man returns to gaming this year as well. Mega Man 11 is the first Mega Man game in the main franchise since 2010's Mega Man 10. Fans have had to tide themselves over with Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 in the eight year gap. Featuring voice...
Both Joe and Anthony Russo are proud of what they've managed to achieve with Avengers 4, the upcoming sequel to Avengers: Infinity War. The two brothers co-directed both movies, as well as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.
In an interview with Deadline at San Diego Comic-Con, Joe Russo said, "I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we've grown with every movie that we've made there." The box office certainly agrees with Russo. Each Marvel film the Russo brothers direct is more financially successful than the last. The Winter Soldier grossed $714 million worldwide, while Civil War grossed $1.1 billion, and Infinity War grossed over $2 billion.
Russo and his brother aren't watching the numbers though. They want to focus on producing the type of story they want to tell. "You know, it's always an agenda of ours to block out the outside noise because it can lead you to make some bad choices with the material," Russo said. "We've learned over the years just to listen to ourselves, and it's great that there's two of us that we can have conversations with each other."
Production on Avengers 4 started and finished before the numbers came in for Infinity War, so Russo believes the "purity" of the film is still intact. Neither brother could be swayed by what people said worked and what people said didn't work for Infinity War. "We've been in post-production on [Avengers 4]...
In a huge surprise, Disney has revealed that Star Wars animated series The Clone Wars will be getting a Season 7. The news was shared at San Diego Comic-Con, where fans got their first look at an older Anakin, Obi-Wan, Rex, and Ahsoka in a new trailer, which you can watch below. A total of 12 new episodes of the animated series are officially coming to Disney's upcoming streaming service, although a specific release date has not yet been announced.
After being canceled on Cartoon Network in 2013, the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars returned for a final sixth season on Netflix in 2014. The sixth season was shorter than the five that proceeded it and left many of supervising director Dave Filoni's stories unresolved. Several authors picked up those plot lines and wrote them into novels, such as Star Wars: Ahsoka and Star Wars: Dark Disciple.
Based on the trailer, the seventh season seems to pick up close to the start of Revenge of the Sith. Anakin and Obi-Wan are called in to take a hologram call, only to see that it's with Anakin's former apprentice Ahsoka and Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze. In the Ahsoka novel, we learn that after Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka reunite for the first time since Ahsoka left the Jedi Order, the three, along with Clone Captain Rex and Commander Cody, fight in one of Star Wars' most infamous battles: the Siege of Mandalore.
The original movie follows Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) as they make their way through zombie-ridden America, encountering Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), along the way. The quirky group of four decide to head to California together, where they run into Bill Murray, who plays himself in a hilarious and dark cameo.
After the sequel got the green light, it was announced that all four original protagonists agreed to be in it, and the original director Ruben Fleischer will direct again. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers of the original as well as the Deadpool movies, are also coming back to write the sequel. Since so many people are returning, let's cross our fingers that the sequel will be just as good as the original.
The first movie was released September 25, 2009, which means the sequel will be coming out close to the 10 year anniversary of Zombieland. Hopefully there are still some Twinkies left for Tallahassee after a decade. Production for the Zombieland sequel is expected to begin in January 2019.
Warner Bros.'s massive Hall H panel at Comic-Con features a lot of new trailers, but one of the the most exciting dropped so far has been for the new Godzilla movie titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Starring Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), the trailer features all kinds of monsters and mayhem.
In the film, the planet is experiencing some kind of apocalyptic payback for all the damage that humanity has done to the Earth, complete with huge natural disasters meant to take out the human race. In order to save the our species, they have to find all the titans, (Godzilla, Mothera, etc.) who have been hiding since the time when they ruled over the earth.
The trailer opens with Brown on a rooftop, watching intently as a storm begins to cover the entire city. It then goes on to show various disasters occurring around the globe, before getting to the moment we've all been waiting for; a good look at the new Godzilla.
Godzilla emerges from the water, looks down at the puny humans, and lets out a blue fiery roar. Naturally, CGI technology has improved since the last time we got a Godzilla movie, so he, along with all the other monsters shown in the trailer, looks amazing. Mothera's giant green wings are also particularly awe inspiring.
Seems like we're in for a super thrilling movie, with lots of chaos, and huge monsters. Godzilla: King of the Monsters premieres in May, 2019.
