All the Biggest and Best News From San Diego Comic Con 2019

By Tom Pritchard on at

It's that time of year again, the one weekend of the year where pop-culture and general geekery take over the news cycle and piss off just about everybody who has an active dislike for this sort of thing. San Diego Comic Con is back, with its impossible-to-buy tickets, exclusive swag, and never-before-seen footage that inevitably leaks online in atrocious quality. It's also the time when the entertainment industry shows off all the stuff it has planned for the near future.

But Comic Con is big.  Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. So it can be quite hard to keep track of all the biggest news and announcements. We will have plenty of it up on site, which you can keep tabs on as and when it happens, but it's going to get harder to keep up as the weekend progresses. Luckily we have a big long list for you to bookmark. We're going to be updating this between now and Monday, and that should make life easier for you.

Here's everything we have so far:
