San Diego Comic-Con 2020 Thursday Recap

We at Skewed and Reviewed will be sharing San Diego Comic-Con daily recaps with Comic-Con at Home well underway. The annual Comic-Con is a little different in 2020. Actually, it’s a lot different as we Comic-Con at Home this year. Hundreds of panels are free of charge to everyone with San Diego Comic-Con going virtual this year.  This enables people everywhere to experience a sample of this amazing convention. Comic-Con is the biggest pop-culture event of the year. The massive crowds it drew annually will no doubt translate to greater online attention.

What Happens on Wednesday

Wednesday is usually the preview night at the show.  In years past, guests eagerly flocked to the main floor to shop for convention exclusives and merchandise ahead of opening day on Thursday. While Wednesday programming includes a few panels, guests would typically use preview day to visit the displays  that are set up around the convention center.

This year the virtual panels will be available online after their debut. This conveniently allows viewers to enjoy them on their schedule. There were numerous community, educational, and informative panels available on Wednesday. Thursday was the first full day of extensive programming and it offered plenty of choices for everyone.

Star Trek Universe

I started Thursday with the Star Trek Universe panel.  Viewers got a sneak peek of the new animated show Star Trek: Lower Decks. The ensuing cast discussion for Star Trek: Discovery was highlighted by a table read of last season’s finale.  Making it more interesting were the addition of sound effects and early-stage visual effects.

Star Trek: Picard capped off the fantastic showing as the cast looked back on the first season of the show and also had great moments as Sir Patrick Stewart was lovingly chided by some of his castmates from Star Trek TNG.



Notable Panels

Duncanville, Marvel 616, Utopia, and Upload panels entertained with funny clips and humorous cast insights. I highly recommend checking them out for a preview of what is to come.



 





 

The New Mutants panel was very interesting considering the film has been subject to numerous release date changes. There were rumors that it could be coming to a streaming service. A humorous look at the various canceled release dates that kicked off the panel. Thankfully, it concluded with a late August release date. The cast and creatives introduced new footage and discussed the film to the delight of eager fans online.



Thursday Afternoon

Next up was Superstore. I had attended their first panel at SDCC last year and I was eager to see what they had to show.  Some of the cast recorded entertaining sketches to open the show. IT was a great lead into a fun discussion that included a question-and-answer segments from fans.



Amazon had a fantastic panel for The Boys. They showed off a very exciting clip from the upcoming season that kicked off a very lively discussion. The announcement that a third season has been ordered was well-received.



My day concluded with Van Helsing, Marvel HQ, and Mystery Science Theater 3000. Van Helsing announced they were currently filming new episodes in Canada. To the best of their knowledge they are the only major production currently filming.

There were plenty of other interesting panels that I plan to check out as time allows. For their Thursday lineup, check out Comic-Con International’s Youtube channel, as there is truly was something for everyone. Check back for more of our San Diego Comic-Con daily recaps.
