Every year we flock by the thousands to America’s Finest City to see all of the best announcements, trailers, and panels that pop culture has to offer.For those who are attending the holy grail of comics, TV, movies, and more this year, below is your complete guide to all of the best panels and events.“We saw the sales of any character that was diverse, any character that was new, our female characters, anything that was not a core Marvel character, people were turning their nose up against.That was difficult for us because we had a lot of fresh, new, exciting ideas that we were trying to get out and nothing new really worked.” Online, readers slammed Marvel for changing old characters rather than coming up with new ones — or reintroducing old ones — that reflected their communities. Burgos (@mswteburgos) April 3, 2017 In an op-ed for the Guardian, comics critic J. Micheline rejected the idea that diversity could be blamed for poor sales and urged the comic-book industry to expand its audience.By even making remarks like these, Marvel is seemingly conceding that its target audience, its ‘core’ audience — and their ‘core’ characters — are white and male.” Moviegoers were introduced to The Black Panther in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War," but for The Post's David Betancourt, this has been a 50-year journey.(Erin Patrick O'Connor/The Washington Post) Little wonder that Marvel Studios, a Disney subsidiary that owns such lucrative franchises as “The Avengers,” “Ant-Man” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” has been slower to reflect diverse characters on the big screen.With Marvel abstaining from the closing Hall H Saturday spot this year, eternal Comic-Con fixture Kevin Smith is taking the p.m. Maybe he’ll talk the Jay and Silent Bob reboot; maybe we’ll learn something more about panel will being formally introducing the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker!Her co-stars Tosin Cole (who plays Ryan) and Mandip Gill (who plays Yasmin), series showrunner Chris Chibnall, and executive producer Matt Stevens will all be joining as well. We know that some of the cast and crew will be there, but the details of what they’ll be presenting are still unclear.
Stop by for some entertainment, hang-outs, live Nerdist shows, a VR experience based on the sci-fi series SONA, a party for the 200th episode of has a new unrated version to promote.
A popular graphic put together in 2015 by Twitter users @fauxparse and @comikazejeff pointed out that, “more often, Marvel heroes are played by white dudes named Chris than all women put together.” The graphic above is two years old now, but even updating for newer Marvel releases like “Captain America: Civil War,” “Doctor Strange” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. It also doesn’t include DC Comics, which owns the equally white male-dominated Superman and Batman franchises — but which in June will finally release “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot in the title superheroine role.
(The movie will also, incidentally, star Chris Pine.) Which brings us back to the Many Chrises.
Check out the panel in Hall H on Saturday at p.m., then catch the very first screening of the new cut of the movie at 10 p.m. Panelists are as yet unspecified, but Ryan Reynolds would seem to be a no-brainer.
Presumably we’ll find out when the uncut film can be seen by the rest of the world, either in theaters or the comfiness of home.
We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on a Mac Book Pro and i Mac, running Mac OS X.
