The San Diego Comic-Con 2021 is here. The mega-event will perform a Comic-Con@Home version of the convention this year, as they did in 2020, for obvious reasons, with intentions to return in person for the entire event in 2022. While the calendar for Comic-Con@Home isn’t quite as crowded as the one for a regular SDCC, there’s still a long list of virtual panels to attend, many of which will feature the premiere of brand new information, trailers, and footage from some highly anticipated forthcoming films and shows.
The official dates for Comic-Con are Friday, July 23 through Sunday, July 25. (though there are a few panels that will be released before that). On the Comic-Con Youtube channel, you’ll be able to watch all of the panels of the Comic-Con 2021.

In one of the polls on which panels you’re most eager about, the Army of the Dead prequel film and the upcoming Blade Runner anime series couldn’t compete with the great Dragon Ball, which won with 36.2 percent.
Rick and Morty

Rick and Morty’s popularity continues to grow. With Season 5 currently airing, there will undoubtedly be plenty of discussions. It will be about what we’ve seen thus far and what’s to come.

Masters of the Universe

With Chris Wood as Prince Adam / He-Man, Mark Hamill as Skeletor, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela, Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn, Diedrich Bader as bothKing Randor and Trap Jaw, and Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, the cast has lots of fantastic possibilities.
