Comic-con San Diego
As SDCC 2019 comes to a close, our creative team at 2heads could not resist creating their own Comic-Con logo. And what could be a more fitting time? Comic-Con San Diego just celebrated its milestone 50th year, having changed rather significantly in number from the 100 people who attended in 1970 at the U.S Grant Hotel. Now the three-day event is the mecca of conventions with over 130,000 attendees across 460,000 square feet and a rigorous schedule of 700+ events. It has a campus effect on San Diego downtown as fans descend to hear the latest announcements on their favourite comics, tv series & films.
There was plenty to talk about too, with trailers for the most anticipated series like Watchmen and Star Trek launched and the new X-Men comic book series announced. The greatest buzz however was generated by the Marvel panel, the largest they have assembled and one of the best received. Part of our client Disney’s giant studio offering, Marvel revealed more than 10 new projects in the works, including a Blade reboot, the return of Doctor Strange and Thor 4, and their new movie Eternals staring Angelina Jolie. Legacy was on everyone’s lips as well as the Terminator - Dark Fate premiered with the same Arnie and Linda Hamilton of the original and Tom Cruise came to wow the skies with his Top Gun sequel Maverick. It’s hard to know which one we want to watch first!
