Exhibition - SDCC 2017 : News of the week

By Mulder, 11 july 2017

Well we can officially say SDCC is next week! Can you feel the excitement?

So let's talk about the latest news from the king of all (US based) comic conventions.

The official schedule was released (https://www.comic-con.org/cci/programming-schedule), and as always quite a bit of must see panels in our opinion, including the Warner Bros Studios (who knows what they will bring, but we think Kingsmen 2, Deadpool 2, Justice League are for sure bets, maybe even some Aquaman).

Marvel Studios also has a panel (Avengers Infinity War Thor: Ragnarok Black Panther).

The exclusive list has also been updated (https://www.comic-con.org/cci/2017/exclusives)

In terms of offsite events, there is a Mr. Robot one (which includes free BBQ), from their press release:

‘MR. ROBOT’ EXPERIENCE : USA will bring the critically acclaimed series MR. ROBOT’s universe to life exclusively for fans at Comic-Con, giving them the opportunity to visit the nefarious E Corp’s Bank of E and receive their own E Corp card loaded with E Coin cryptocurrency. The E Corp card, which can also be opened online at e-coin.com, can be used throughout San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter for food, drinks and other surprises at participating retailers (to be announced). ‘Con goers can also visit the show’s infamous Red Wheelbarrow BBQ, located next door to the Bank of E, and present their E Corp card for a BBQ meal. Superfans looking for a deeper MR. ROBOT experience will have the chance to uncover clues, hints and surprises, leading further into Elliot’s world. The Bank of E will be open for business Thursday, July 20 through Saturday, July 22 from 11am - 7pm and Sunday, July 23 from 11am - 4pm.
