San Diego Comic-Con 2021 is back and here’s what you should look out for

San Diego Comic-Con 2021, held online for the second consecutive year, is set to take place from 21 to 25 July. Also called @Home, the San Diego event is considered one of the most important in the pop scene, responsible for bringing the main news from the world of series, movies and comics. Due to the pandemic, the event organizers chose the virtual format.

Paramount’s Snake Eyes: G.I. Origins will open this year’s digital convention, with a cast panel scheduled to kick things off on 23 July. Disney’s Marvel Studios and Warner Bros’ DC films both opted out of presentations this year, so we won’t be hearing any further news about their film slates.

Though Marvel and DC Comics won’t be promoting their upcoming films, a slew of other high profile properties are scheduled to be featured during the virtual event, including Star Trek,Tuca & Bertie, Rick and Morty, and Dragon Ball Z, among others.

Netflix appears to be filling in a few of the gaps in the pop-culture scene with a geeked line-up that includes Masters of the Universe: Revelation, The Fear Street trilogy, and The Last Mercenary, amongst many others. The panels include appearances from the creative minds and stars of these shows and movies, so you may want to start your virtual planning now.
