I didn’t even go to Comic Con, and I’m exhausted from all of this Comic Con news

Comic Con Wrap Up

Note: trailers for all of the shows mentioned below were debuted this weekend, and I’ve put them in these two posts, in case you missed them earlier.

Game of Thrones news:

Doctor Who news:

Supernatural news:

  • The panel opened with a live performance of “Carry On My Wayward Son” by Kansas:

The Walking Dead news: 


OH SHIT, The Simpsons just claimed that they turned down Donald Trump for a guest appearance on the show. GOOD.

Samurai World on Westworld? “That doesn’t look like anything to me,” says Jonathan Nolan who is just fucking with us now. And this is the poem that you should read, apparently.

Stranger Things promises justice for Barb — but no Barb.

David Lynch is a weirdo and never going to change. Also, basically no one on the cast has ever watched or is watching Twin Peaks.

Outlander generously offered the entire first episode to fans at their panel, and Ronald D. Moore discusses how this season is a “transitional” one with some mild spoilers.

Midnight, Texas also played its first episode (which debuts tonight on NBC, see below) and Charlaine Harris gives the show her blessing.

The Tick showed the second episode, and i09 is over here making some big claims.

Whoa: Krypton is not set entirely in the past.

Riverdale will be 22 episodes long this season. And, unsurprisingly to anyone who has ever read a single Archie comic, relationships will be shaken up.

The Black Lightning panel described the main characters as the “Obamas of the superhero world.” I’m sold.

The Gifted will not crossover with The X-Men or Legion. Although I’d like to see them try with that last one.

Here are your Gotham and Lucifer questions answered.

Vikings staged a viking funeral at SDCC to say goodbye to Ragnar.

The cast of The Magicians crashed Syfy’s Cosplay Karaoke Bus.

SDCC also paid tribute to Adam West with Kevin Smith, producer James Tucker, actors Ralph Garman and Lee Meriwether.

In Non-Comic-Con News

George R.R. Martin just announced that he still has months to go on Winds of Winter. OH MY GOD, OLD MAN, WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM? MAYBE YOU SHOULD STOP IT WITH THE SPINOFFS AND FOCUS. I mean, it’s great that we’re getting these Targaryen books, BUT STILL.

Ladies and gentlemen, the stupidest story of the day.

Comic Con isn’t the only festival that TV has taken over.

Not cool, Verizon.

A body double on The Affair is suing for sexual harassment for being referred to as “Alison Sexytime Double” on a call sheet.

Former Doctor Who Peter Davison is shedding mantears for all the little boys who will go with zero role models now that the Doctor is a woman. I mean.

Gah, isn’t making the Doctor a woman enough for you ladies??

A reboot of Charmed isn’t going to happen anytime soon, sad.

Twin Peaks has moved time slots because dragons.

Stay safe, Bill Lawrence!
