The San Diego Comic Con just concluded over the weekend, and while this year didn’t see as much in the way of massive announcements and reveals, there was still plenty for geeks to drool over.
We’ve collected some of the more noteworthy stuff to make their debut at SDCC, starting with some posters. My favourite of the bunch has to be the “Wonder Woman” teaser poster, though the one of “The Lego Batman Movie” is so charming it might actually end up on my wall at some point. Am also digging the Art Deco feel of the “Fantastic Beasts” poster. Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur” reimagining on the other hand looks like crap, and even the film’s renaming (“Legend Of The Sword”) feels weak and uninspired.
Oh, and here’s some various Marvel tidbits. “Thor: Ragnarok” showed off a new logo that got people smiling at how retro it looks. A clear homage to “Heavy Metal” and Atari here. Speaking of logos, the studio itself underwent a re-branding exercise, debuting an updated logo, complete with fanfare music composed by Michael Giacchino (Pixar’s “Inside Out”).
Everyone in Hall H was given a free baseball cap bearing the new logo. Which you can see below, being worn by Brie Larson, aka the newly-announced Captain Marvel. Nice cap, awesome news, and a very flattering shot of the Oscar-winning actress.
