To the relief of people in the audience at the debut Comic-Con panel for the new Syfy series "Krypton," the creators revealed that they didn't totally disconnect from the current DC Universe.
DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns moderated the Indigo Ballroom panel Saturday, which included Cameron Cuffe, who stars as Superman's grandfather Seg-El, and executive producers Cameron Welsh and Damian Kindler.
The presentation opened with a sneak peek at footage from the show, which premieres in 2018. It highlighted the Romeo-and-Juliet situation in which Seg-El finds himself due to a romantic relationship with a woman from the House of Zod, a name Superman fans know well.
Taika Waititi and the rest of the "Thor: Ragnarok" crew debuted a brand new trailer to the denizens of Hall H. In it the mighty Cate Blanchett takes center stage as does her equally fabulous evil headdress. This is Marvel's new villain Hela.
But of course, no "Thor" story is really complete without the Asgardian's brother Loki. Tom Hiddleston himself shared that Loki has spent the last four years ruling Asgard (as Odin) -- though not doing a very good job of it.
As for "Ragnarok" specifics, Hiddleston reminded the audience that Loki is still the God of Mischief but declined to share any more, urging fans to wait for the film to find out where his ultimate allegiances may lie.
President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige announced a bit of "Captain Marvel" news on the Hall H Marvel panel at Comic-Con.
The first woman-lead superhero film from Marvel, starring Brie Larson in the title role, will be set in the 1990s. And that means, "Nick Fury will have TWO eyes," Feige explained, "Because this film is set in the early 1990s. The villains will be the first MU appearance of the Skrulls."
Yes, that's right the Skrulls are entering this already pretty well-populated, superhero world. And that's double confirmation that Samuel L. Jackson will be in "Captain Marvel."
The dynamic duo of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo have reunited to put Batman through more hell -- and to poke some fun at each other.
Before getting down to the nitty-gritty of their Bat-crazy DC Comics event “Dark Nights: Metal,” which launches next month, the fan-favorite personalities behind a bestselling 2011-2016 run on “Batman” did some impersonations.
Introduced as Capullo by DC co-publisher Dan DiDio, Snyder walked onstage in a custom bald cap with dark sunglasses and a fake mustache attached, and proceeded to talk about what an awesome writer and collaborator Scott Snyder is.
Shannon Purser asks the "Stranger Things" question we've all been wondering about.
Internet folk hero Shannon Purser, better known as Barb from "Stranger Things," dropped by Hall H on Saturday afternoon to ask the panelists what we've all been wondering: Will Barb return for Season 2?
Watch above to learn Barb's fate and whether or not fans will ever see #JusticeForBarb.
Somehow we never noticed what an uncanny resemblance electronic music megastar DJ Diplo bears to actor James Van Der Beek, yes, the erstwhile Dawson Leery. But some things you can't unsee.
Van Der Beek plays the celebrity DJ -- at least, a mythic, Instagram-happy, slightly dim version of Diplo -- on the new Viceland series "What Would Diplo Do?" premiering Aug. 3.
It might, in fact, turn out to be one of the Great Roles that Van Der Beek was born to play. He not only plays Diplo, but he also writes on the show and serves as executive producer (the real Diplo is also an executive producer).
