SDCC 2019 Highlights

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you probably know this past weekend was San Diego Comic Con. Especially if you read OUR site. 

Unfortunately couldn't be there to cover the show, but we still want to share some of the highlights from the biggest weekend in geek and pop culture.

Here's some of our personal favorite bits and pieces from SDCC. 

Top Gun Sequel trailer drops, with a surprise appearance by Maverick himself, Tom Cruise:

My personal favorite moment is the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot trailer release from Kevin Smith and the ensuing panel. Check em out:

Marvel wins the weekend with the Phase 4 announcements (especially the Mahershala Ali as Blade casting and the Black Widow movie...FINALLY!) and the X-Men comics 'reboot' led by Johnathan Hickman ! Here are panels with announcements.
