If I had a final dying wish, it would probably be to go to Comic Con. I have tried to get tickets in the past, and alas, it seems to be an impossible feat. Thus, every year, I find myself drooling over the feed on hashtag and catching all the latest action from the event that I can.
It's kind of pathetic.
But ... maybe a few of you can relate?
At any rate, let's make sure none of us missed anything with a quick recap of all the awesome we missed out on, shall we?
Obviously, there was some truly fabulous cosplay.
My storytelling hero Joss Whedon explained what’s wrong with modern movies.
And he teased us by saying he still wants to direct a Black Widow movie (pretty please???).
Meanwhile, Marvel revealed PHASE THREE.
Brie Larson revealed that she is going to be Captain Marvel, and everyone happy danced.
The Hall of Faces was real. (It looks pretty unsettling, too).
It was extremely, crazy hot there. But these Tatooine natives were so ready for it.
Ahsoka Tano wore a dress made out of Legos, and made Legos the new duct tape.
There was a Suicide Squad trailer.
There was a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer.
Netflix performed the mic-drop of all trailer drops, teasing Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders. They also confirmed new seasons of Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
There was a Justice League trailer, and Aquaman was suddenly not so goofy.
Chewie’s Angels. Go with it.
The Mary Sue investigated the problem with the new Killing Joke movie.
Several of my living favorite authors hung out with me.
The Flash cast revealed all sorts of spoily goodness about the Flashpoint timeline.
The American Gods trailer asked you to determine whether you are crazy, or the world is.
Benedict Cumberbatch said Dr. Strange was more important than the Avengers. (Calm down! He jests! But he might be right.)
Per standard rules of irony, the Women in Film Production panel was overrun by men who would not stop talking.
Tatiana Maslany announced a contest for a fan to win a walk-on role in season 5 of Orphan Black.
Star portraits. SO MANY star portraits.
Did we mention, there was cosplay?
