Comic-Con 2017: What Do We Know?

NtRWxzj.gifWith one day left of San Diego Comic-Con, let’s discuss some of the upcoming movies, shows and games that DC and Marvel have been announced so far.

First up, DC.

DC has confirmed that the Wonder Woman sequel is in the works, to the surprise of no one. That being said, I can’t wait for the Amazonian’s next adventure.

We also got a new trailer for Justice League, which I am cautiously optimistic about.  The trailer gave us a look at our villain, Steppenwolf, who will be brought to life by Liam Neeson. The Amazons are back, and maybe Superman too. Well, the latter was hinted at, but I will not be surprised if that is indeed the case.

I am hopeful that this film will follow Wonder Woman‘s success and not fall into the same traps as the previous DC films. Justice League will arrive on the silver screen in November.

Another upcoming DC film, Aquaman also had a trailer, although this one was just a teaser. There is one thing we know for certain, Arthur hates cameras! The footage shows him attacking the camera, ending the footage, which we have seen him do in Batman Vs Superman. I guess he’s camera shy? Either way, his stand alone film is coming out December 2018.

We got a look at Marvel’s latest Netflix show, Punisher. Jon Bernthal is reprising his role for the series as the title character. The footage shows what you would expect from Frank Castles, shoot outs and lots of killing. Unfortunately, no release date has been confirmed.

Doctor Doom is getting his own movie. Did not see that coming. The film is currently in development, yet the only name we have been given tied to the film is Fargo showrunner, Noah Hawley. I am curious to see how this ends up.

Ever wanted to be the merch with the mouth? Well, you can soon fulfil that dream in the upcoming MARVEL Powers United VR game. While the game itself was announced back at the Disney D23 Expo, the ability to play as Deadpool was announced at Comic-Con. The game will also give you the choice to play as either Captain Marvel, Hulk or Rocket Raccoon. It will be out in 2018.

With one more day left, chances are there will be even more exciting announcements on the way, only time will tell what else Comic-Con 2017 has in store for us.
