Welcome to Horror News Radio Extra, a second HNR podcast each with with festival reviews and convention news. The first episode is our annual recapping of the biggest news from the San Diego International Comic Con held July 21-24, 2016. Originally a comic book convention, the event grew to include and spotlight media from all over. In the past decade or so it has exploded to become THE geek event of the year. The biggest news, trailers and announcement are thrown at the audience and fandom in an overwhelming rate. For those who cannot make it into Hall H, this podcast is for you. Here is our reaction to the news that you've been catching all weekend.
While the Grue-crew will be covering the more horror news on episode 173 of Horror News Radio (which will be out in just a few days), award winning director Christopher G. Moore and artist Chad Hunt join Dave, Doc and Thomas to look at what made a big impression. We take a look at the news from DC's cinematic universe with Wonder Woman and Justice League trailers and with the Marvel cinematic universe with a Doctor Strange trailer and big Guardians of the Galaxy 2 news. We also cover some TV news include American Gods.

Marvel and DC battle all weekend to present the biggest news and show the best trailer. Everything is on display from toys to set walk through events to costumes from the films. The film makers, actors and creators own Hall H as they present teases and hints at the year - years! - to come. This year, they dominate as much as they ever have as other genre related material struggled to get noticed. The big winners are Justice League, Wonder Woman and Doctor Strange news while Guardians of the Galaxy 2 held the biggest surprises. Marvel finally revealed who will be playing Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel, and how much of Planet Hulk will make it into the currently filming Thor: Ragnorok. Exciting!
