Like so many big events in 2020, SDCC was canceled. It is typically one of the biggest pop culture events of the year, with most major studios lining up to showcase what they have coming. In its place, a virtual event was put together that was not as big, though seemingly didi well enough to justify a second go-around. However, DC put on its own showcase late last summer as well with DC FanDome. That event was packed with big announcements. The company will be holding another, similar event later this year.
As for San Diego Comic-Con, it is set to return in summer 2022. As of right now, the organizers are planning another in-person event in San Diego in November. Though there was some controversy due to it taking place over Thanksgiving weekend.
[email protected] runs from July 23 to July 25.
