Comic-Con 2017: When Will Miracleman Return at Marvel?

For decades, fans have waited to see Neil Gaiman and artist Mark Buckingham finish the lost Miracleman storyline, “The Silver Age.” On the third day of Comic-Con, we finally got an update at Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe panel.

When asked about the status of Miracleman, Marvel senior editor Nick Lowe said that Buckingham is redrawing the entire Silver Age story, and he described the pages as “Marvel meets Miyazaki.” Lowe added that he is still actively in touch with Buckingham and Gaiman, but right now Marvel is not ready to announce a release date. Several issues of The Silver Age were solicited for release last year but were later canceled.

Comic-Con 2017: Hodor Moderated the Game of Thrones Panel!

Game of Thrones is a San Diego Comic-Con staple at this point, but this year is different as their big panel in the convention’s giant Hall H arena actually took place during a current season for a change. That meant the possibility of some hints about Season 7, which just debuted last week, though the cast members in attendance did their best to stay mum.

On hand were series stars Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) and Conleth Hill (Varys), as well as Hodor himself, actor Kristian Nairn, who moderated the panel!

Comic-Con 2017: 31 Screenshots From the New Stranger Things: Season 2 Thriller Trailer

Netflix has released a new trailer for Stranger Things: Season 2, teasing the Upside Down, Eleven’s return and the Halloween theme.

The screenshot slideshow below captures those elements from the Stranger Things trailer and more. Check out the kids hanging out at an arcade, Will’s mother Joyce looking concerned as always and Steve rocking some sweet shades.

As can be seen from the screenshots, Stranger Things: Season 2 — which aims to be “weirder and darker” than the last — picks up quickly from where things were left off. There are several new characters, however, like a “kind-hearted former nerd” played by Samwise Gamgee himself, Sean Astin.

The second season of Stranger Things is set to premiere October 27.

Comic-Con 2017: New Thor: Ragnarok Footage Showcases Grandmaster and Sakaar

Marvel Studios presented attendees at Saturday’s San Diego Comic-Con with never-before-seen footage from Thor: Ragnarok.

The footage showcased the zany nature and humor of the film. The sequence opens with a captured Thor, still with his long hair, waking up confined to a moving seat. A robotic female voice tells him, “You are home. There’s no going back. No one leaves this place but what is this place?”

The song “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory plays as Thor remains locked into a chair bringing him through space and teaching him about Sakaar. The tutorial instructs him about the Grandmaster, described as “the first lost and the first found.” Thor watches hologram footage of fights and he’s told he is now property of the Grandmaster...

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Reveals How the Guardians of the Galaxy Meet the Avengers

The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was revealed at D23 Expo 2017, and while it’s unclear whether Marvel will release the trailer to the public, there was notable news to come out of the footage.

Consider this a spoiler warning if you want to go in completely clean, but as this is a trailer, we will report on it as news.

The trailer for Infinity War opens with the Guardians of the Galaxy, as we last left them, flying through space on the Milano. Mantis says, “We are arriving,” and Star-Lord responds that they need to “put on our mean faces.”

It’s unclear what drew them to this location — whether a signal or otherwise — but, as they’re flying through the wreckage in space at this location, a body bumps into the ship’s windshield. They bring the body into the ship and… it’s Thor!
