I feel like this year’s SDCC didn’t really pump out the news like previous years. Marvel’s panel, while entertaining, only revealed snippets of new movies like Captain Marvel and Antman and the Wasp. Warner Bros only focused on three movies, Justice League, Ready Player One, and Blade Runner. I feel Netflix was the biggest winner this year. They had more offerings and released new sporadically to keep you interested.

If I had to pick a favorite announcement from the convention, I would have to say it was the Ready Player One trailer. I was not expecting what I saw. That trailer got me excited to see this movie. I loved the book and cannot wait to see what Spielberg pulled off.

What was your favorite moment from SDCC 2017? Did you even have one? Do you think the convention is not as great as it has been in the past? Let me know your thoughts by sounding off below.

Danniel Slade

Slade started Temple of Geek in 2012 with his friend as a podcast. Since then, it has become a lot more. His obsessions are Transformers, Star Wars, Classic Video Games, Superheroes, and comedies. Slade's life was turned to the Darkside when his father gave him a gift in 1985. He was presented with the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron. Since then, Slade has become a collector of the robots in disguise. The only other thing that comes close to Slade's love of Transformers is Star Wars. He has met a few of the cast over the years. Slade's one goal in life is to meet with George Lucas and just discuss movies with him.
