Now that Comic-Con is winding down, it’s time for studios and the Con itself to begin slowly but surely showing the rest of the world what happened. If you were watching the #SDCC hashtag on Twitter over the weekend, you are undoubtedly wrapped up in the hype. That’s the thing to remember about Comic-Con: it exists in a vacuum. All the reason and context gets sucked out of the room, leaving hype to run rampant.
There will be Comic-Con hits that end up being bad, unsuccessful or a mix of the two. But for now, there’s plenty of hope. And there’s nothing wrong with that hope. As a veteran of watching movies for a living, I still want everything to be good. Because there are plenty of creatives in the industry who have ambitious and wonderful visions, even for big studio superhero movies. I want those visions to turn into ambitious, interesting, super-fun movies and TV shows. We’ll see how it goes. But if there’s one thing about which we are certain, it’s that there were some really great discussions happening in the various halls of the San Diego Convention Center.
Let’s watch and see how the hype gets made with the best of Comic-Con below, ranked from best to almost best. Prepare yourself for a lot of Chris Hardwick:
