Fifty years of Comic-Con, and I was there to discover what new treats lay for the attendees of this vast convention devoted to comic books. Comic Con ran from July 18-21, with preview night on July 17. Announcements, screenings, and trailers for returning and upcoming new TV shows and movies were present daily. There was so much to see and so little time to see them!
Comic-Con International returned to San Diego from July 19 – 22, 2018 with preview night on July 18.

Welcome to my annual recap of my favorite conference!
Comic-Con International returned to San Diego from July 20-23, 2017 with preview night on July 19 at the San Diego Convention Center. As our writer Sheldon Wiebe gave updates on shows that were coming to the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), our very own Michelle Alexandria, Tiffany D’ Emideo, and myself made our way to San Diego.

Netflix’s final Defender, Iron Fist, made his debut at New York Comic-Con 2016 as the show’s first teaser trailer was screened.
There are few glimpses of K’un-Lun – the Shangri-la-like hidden Asian community where Danny Rand (Finn Jones) was the only white person to learn their martial arts and achieve the ultimate skill – the Iron Fist. We do see, briefly, Lei Kung, his teacher.
In what appears to be a signature bit in Netflix’s Marvel series, there is what looks like Danny’s taking on a corridor full of opponents. (It looks pretty spiffy).
Iron Fist premieres on March 17, 2017. check out the teaser after the break.
After all the whitewashing talk, it turns out that Matt Damon plays one of several heroes in Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall – which also stars Jian Lian, Andy Lau and Pedro Pascal – as shown in a Chinese poster I found online.
A new trailer was screened today at New York Comic-Con 2016. Check it out after the jump.
The first trailer for Saban’s Power Rangers was screened today at New York Comic-Con 2016. It is a lot less cheesy than I was expecting – though there are some familiar moments that seem pretty traditional for superhero movies.
