Considering everything that is scheduled for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, fans shouldn’t be disappointed. The movie schedule is impressive, with Warner Bros. having panels for Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman, and Marvel busting out with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange, after sitting last year out.
But aside from films, this will also be a good year for TV.
According to Uproxx, the cast of the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones will gather for a panel and Q&A.
Since giving fans everything they hoped for in Season 6, HBO is planning on making the Comic-Con experience even more exciting with a Game of Thrones scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt will last for three days, giving attendees plenty of time to be a part of the experience.
While the scavenger hunt may be more of a social media event for the show, since fans will be required to tweet photos of everything they find, the prizes are worth the extra tweeting.
The prizes include a CLUE version of Game of Thrones, a McFarlane Iron Throne Room Construction Set, Factory Entertainment Game of Thrones plush figures, a Dark Horse Varys Figure, Insight Editions’ Sigil Stationery Set, and also a GoT SDCC Exclusive the Night King T-shirt.
But HBO isn’t the only network with big plans for its shows, reveals RollingStone.
The CW is also not only making an appearance, but is bringing along a slate of previews for their upcoming shows at this year’s Comic-Con.
Those shows include Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and The Originals, along with the networks most popular DC cards, Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and of course the one that started them all, Arrow.
As for Arrow, ScreenRant reports that a special video presentation will be held, followed by a Q&A panel. The cast, including star Stephen Amell, and the creators of the show will be on the panel for an up close and personal discussion with fans about the upcoming fifth season.
So far, Season 5 surrounds a new threat to Star City, a threat that Oliver Queen helped created as both the newly appointed mayor and as the Green Arrow.
The DC line-up will be teasing eager fans with each of their respective upcoming seasons. Also on tap for the CW is The 100 and iZombie. The CW also has a wildcard in Frequency, a new supernatural show about a detective who discovers she can talk to her dead father through a ham radio, and together, they solve crimes.
But with so many panels for so many different networks, fans are bound to miss out on something, Crave points out, especially considering how long the lines will be for many of the highly anticipated panels.
Some of those panels include Starz’s adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel American Gods. Questions such as who’s playing who might be answered. Another unexpected hit, Ash vs. Evil Dead will also be on hand to get fans buzzed about its next season.
Another anticipated panel that isn’t new to Comic-Con, but will be making a return is AMC’s hit show, The Walking Dead. Its successful spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead will also be on hand.
Staples like Comedy Central’s foul-mouthed grade-schoolers of Southpark will also be in attendance. The network will also be introducing the new series Legend of Chamberlain Heights.
