Happy Comic-Con! It’s that nerdtastic week where pop culture enthusiasts flock to San Diego to celebrate their favorite upcoming films, TV shows, comic books, videos games and more. While the convention holds tons and tons of panels featuring the stars and creators of our favorite forms of entertainment, it would be impossible to see it all. But here are the 13 events that you definitely will be hearing about this week.
Thursday, July 24, 2014 – DreamWorks Animation panel It’s true. He will be there in the flesh. Benedict Cumberbatch will grace San Diego Comic-Con with his presence for the Penguins of Madagascar panel. He is a voice in the film, although we’re guessing a lot of ladies will be losing their voices due to many high-pitched screams once he steps on stage.
Thursday, July 24, 2014 – Community panel The cast and creator of Yahoo’s newest TV show will be on hand to…explain what that means exactly? We need the deets!
Thursday, July 24, 2014 – The Witches of East End One of the buzziest new shows will be at SDCC to talk about the livetweet-worthy second season going on now, including star Jenna Dewan Tatum who won’t have to travel down to San Diego alone…
Friday, July 25, 2014 – FOX Film panel …As her husband Channing Tatum will also be on hand for the pop culture festivities! He’ll be part of the Fox panel on Friday afternoon to present his upcoming film Book of Life.
Friday, July 25, 2014 – The Walking Dead panel Not that we want to wish the summer away, but is it October yet?!? We need to know what happens to our stranded zombie-fighting friends! The cast will be there to drop some juicy details on what to expect from the new season.
Friday, July 25, 2014 – The Big Bang Theory panel Well, this is going to be fun. Craig Ferguson wll serve as moderator of the BBT panel which will surely include questions about Wolowitz’s mom, Leonard and Penny’s relationship and many, many Bazingas. Let’s just hope the cast has signed on the dotted line by then…
Saturday, July 26, 2014 – Marvel panel This one’s giving us chills already. While some Avengers: Age of Ultron footage was shown recently in London, the buzz around the Con is that at least some of the cast will be in attendance and ready to show the Marvel fans what they want: superheroes on the screen.
Saturday, July 26, 2014 – Warner Bros. panel Will they show us some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage or what? While they haven’t confirmed that, it might make some heads explode. Peter Jackson will also be on hand to talk about the last Hobbit film, and at the very least there could be a Tom Hardy sighting when the first footage from Mad Max is screened.
Saturday, July 26, 2014 – True Blood panel Before the show goes out with a bang (and a fang!), the cast of HBO’s hit drama will celebrate the show’s run at their last SDCC together
Saturday, July 26, 2014 – American Horror Story: Freak Show panel Cast members from the creepy-in-the-best-way FX show will appear to chat about last season’s Coven and the upcoming Freak Show. Yes please!
