SDCC 2016 Thoughts #2

My second round of thoughts on the exciting news coming from San Diego Comic Con!

Lets start with that new The Walking Dead trailer for season 7 which you can see below:

Well considering it's three minutes long, it certainly didn't give anything away about last seasons frustrating cliffhanger. They are really going to milk the cow with this one aren't they. Not that they should give anything away now, but I am definitely in the camp who thinks the show should have revealed the death in the episode rather than making us wait 6 months when we will be less emotionally invested. Apart from that this trailer just featured a lot of zombie killings and some cool new characters. Now I have read the comic books and I can tell you now that I am surprised they are going forward with Ezekial's pet tiger, it kind of works in the comics but in terms of realism it's pushing the boat out a bit. Hopefully it will be great but I find the show to be a bit hit and miss nowadays so who knows how it could turn out. However the last season excelled when it followed the source material more closely so here's hoping that next season is great!

Now onto my favourite trailer of the day American Gods. This show is coming in early 2017 and will adapt Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name. For what many thought was an un-adaptable book, the trailer below looks very faithful!

Well that looks great! And if you're a fan of the books then you have to admit that the cast is pretty damn perfect. I can't wait to see how they pull of some of the weird and wonderful content from the books and I also can't wait to see the general public's reaction to it. If they pull it off then this could be a massive hit.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D also unveiled that Ghost Rider will be appearing in their season 4 with this teaser.

Now this Ghost Rider isn't going to be the Johnny Blaze that most know from the comics but lesser known character Robbie Reyes who has a car instead of a motorcycle.
And this is the car!

It will be interesting to see how the show incorporates the character into the story and just how much we see of him as we have to imagine that there will be a lot of CGI. Now the people who make the show have pulled of some very impressive shots before so I have faith in that department. Story wise though this latest season went from amazing to mediocre so hopefully they can pull something out of the bag.

Now for Comic Con tonight is the big night, this is when the big Studios like Marvel and Warner Brothers showcase their upcoming films so expect trailer and surprises galore. I personally want some Spider-Man: Homecoming casting news (i.e who the massive cast are playing!) and trailers for both Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2.

Not sure when the next post will be on as it's going to be a busy weekend for myself but be sure to check back at some point soon to hear my latest thoughts on the SDCC news! Until then here are some cool posters that have been released at the con.

Thanks for reading!
