This year’s physical San Diego Comic-Con has been canceled due to the spread of the coronavirus, but fans can enjoy the next best thing – [email protected]. The virtual version of the conference will launch next Wednesday, July 22, and will end on the following Sunday, July 26.
The conference has now released its line up and among the events offered for free throughout the conference fans will be able to attend talks about titles such as Star Trek: Discovery, His Dark Materials, The Walking Dead, Bill & Ted Face The Music and more.
Another attraction is the slot dedicated to Charlize Theron—Charlize Theron: Evolution of a Badass. A one-hour retrospective of the movie star decades-long career. Fans will also get sneak peeks of new shows and movies, such as Truth seekers—a new comedy from Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, James Serafinowicz, and Nat Saunders that will run on Amazon Prime Video.
Robert Rodriguez, Colin Trevorrow, and Joseph Kosinski will lead a panel about filmmaking, and Disney+ will give fans a look at 616—a Marvel documentary series.
The online version of Comic-Con cannot be compared to the experience enjoyed by up to 135,000 people every year. It may, however, serve as a consolation prize to help the wait until next year.
