SDCC 2018 – RECAP!

By Nishelle, nerd

Missed out on San Diego Comic Con 2018? I did too! But it’s ok because I have google, I’ve done all of the hard work and it’s time for you to reap the benefits of my tireless and selfless searching. So sit back and read about the hottest movies, tv, comics and books packed into a neat and tidy place. Let’s jump in and see what costumes we’ll see on the cosplay circuit next season!

Movies:
-Shazam: Spring 2019, Zachary Levi brings to life this quirky, childish, super hero that will bring
lighthearted fun to the normally dark DC Universe.

-Aquaman: December 2018, Jason Moma finally joins the super hero world and he couldn’t have chosen
a better character, diving into the story of Aquaman and making sure that this sometimes forgotten
hero is heard.

-Titans: Oh how the Teen Titans have grown into young brooding badasses, who trade their bright flashy
colors for the dark muted tones that we have grown to know and love from the DC Universe.

-Godzilla-King of Monsters: May 2019, Another Godzilla movie, this is one of the longest running movie
franchises of all time, it has spanned continents and although some have been terrible, this movie looks
to be bringing back the Godzilla we know and love.

Fantastic Beasts- The Crimes of Grindelwald: November 16 2018, the second installment of this prequel
series, takes us back to the beginning again. We get to see how Grindelwald fell so far and became so
dark, and how Newt Scamander was chosen to be the beast wrangler.

Glass: January 2019 M. Night Shymalan pulls together his favorite characters from Unbreakable and
Split, to create a new kind of superhero movie. This movie pushes us to ask ourselves if our broken
really broken or are they something more?

TV:
-The Purge TV Series: USA Network September 2018- If you like the Purge movies then this may be right
up your alley or you could be as done with it as a lot of other people are. In this series we’ll see who
really benefits from the purge and who just survives.

-The Walking Dead Season 9: AMC October 9 2018-This show is still alive and kicking unlike the vast
majority of extras you’ll see on screen, this season we get to see what life has been like for our leading
characters since making it to Sanctuary and what the heck to do with Negan.

-Doctor Who Season 11: BBC America Ladies?! WE GOT A FEMALE DOCTOR!!!

-Night Flyers: SyFy Fall 2018 This sci-fi drama brings out the major creep factor, and we are here for it! George R.R. Martin trades his dragons in for this high suspense alien-esque thriller.

-Disenchanment: Netflix August 17 2018- Thank the steaming content gods! Matt Groeing has released
his latest series on Netflix (bong bong), the story of a not so average unwilling princess, and her hilarious
friends.
