San Diego Comic Con 2019 is here and that means a bounty of geek gluttony is upon us. We’re excited. Heck, anyone with a passing interest in sci-fi and comic books should be excited.
There has been a ton of news but we've boiled it down in the Shortlist style to present to you the 10 best movie and TV show reveals at Comic Con 2019 - a musty mixture of movies and TV shows that are set to make pop culture, well, pop.
- These are the best movies On NOW TV right now.
1. Marvel’s Phase 4 plans revealed
What's after Endgame? Well, it turns out there’s going to be quite a lot. More information about the Bourne-like Black Widow movie prequel was revealed as well as the title for Thor 4 - Thor: Love and Thunder. We also found out that Natalie Portman will be playing Lady Thor in the movie. The second Doctor Strange will be called Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, while Blade will be rebooted with the fantastic Mahershala Ali to star. There were also confirmation about The Eternals in Phase 4, as well as The Fantastic Four. Phew.
2. WestWorld: three times the charm
The first Season 3 teaser for WestWorld was a big jump from what we have seen so far. It built a world away from the park and also introduced the brilliant Aaron Paul who will have a big part to play in the new season. More footage of WestWorld was revealed and it asks more questions than offers answers, naturally.
3. Terminator: Dark Fate looks great
4. The Expanse ... expands
Currently top of our best Amazon Prime series list, The Expanse was saved from being cancelled by Amazon Prime and now we should find out if this was the right thing to do - and not just because Bezos wanted to keep one of his favourite shows going, like some sort of crazed Roman emperor. Comic Con finally provided a trailer and the new season looks great.
5. Good Place, the final goodbye
6. Picard's the Star
He owns a vineyard and he’s got a dog. That’s about as much as we knew about the retired Jean-Luc in Picard. And, to be honest, if it was just a series about him supping vino and stroking his mutt we'd watch the hell out of it. But there's a lot more going on as the below trailer reveals. And he's accompanied by some brilliant fan favourites, including Data and Seven of Nine.
7. More Rick and Morty
It’s been too long without Rick and Morty. Dan Harman’s comic creation has surpassed Community in our eyes as the best thing he's ever done, and we’re salivating at the thought of getting more alternate world adventures with the duo. We do know there will be 10 episodes and Cartoon Network has given them a deal for 70, which is just joyous. And this first-look trailer is hilarious.
