San Diego Comic Con 2018 is the biggest event in fan and nerd culture, showcasing upcoming movies, toys, comic books, collectibles, television shows and more.

Last year convention was jam-packed and was a debut for a lot of new movies and shows such as “Black Panther,” “Infinity War,” “Justice League,” “Stranger Things” and “Westworld.” However, this year’s convention is more fan-focused and less jammed pack as it was announced Marvel Studios and “Game of Thrones” will not be in attendance, making SDCC feel a bit more relaxed and less hectic than last year.

Regardless of  missing GOT and Marvel, there is still a lot to look for to this year with DC/Warner Bros unveiling the trailer for their new superhero “Aquaman,” “Wonder Woman” 1984, the release of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” season 9, Fox’s new upcoming movie “The Predator” and many more.

Here’s what we’re most excited to see during Comic-Con this year:

“Glass”

Ever since M. Night Shyamalan incredible comeback with his hit 2016 movie “Spilt,” people are waiting to see what the director will unveil next. When Shyamalan announced that he will be making a sequel to his 2000 movie “Unbreakable” called “Glass,” fans were eager to see what the movie will be about. “Glass” will have the recurring cast of “Unbreakable” and “Spilt,” and Shyamalan will premiere the first trailer at Comic-Con on Friday.

“The Walking Dead”

For the past 8 seasons, “The Walking Dead” has followed Rick Grimes and his survivors throughout their time in the zombie apocalyptic world. Since the announcement of Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, leaving after season 9 ends along Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Green, people are wondering what will this season mean for “The Walking Dead.”  The panel and full trailer will premiere on Friday, July 20 at 12:15 PST/3:15 EST.

Besides the DC properties, Warner Bros Pictures has more movies to unveil at SDCC with the most anticipated being the squeal to 2014 Godzilla movie called “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”. This movie will tie in the connection between the recent movies “Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island,” and will build up to the brawl between Godzilla and Kong, which will be a movie in 2020. A teaser clip was released by Millie Bobby Brown (aka Eleven from “Stranger Things”) and a full trailer is expected to be released at SDCC on Saturday, July 21st.

“Aquaman” 

The pressure is on for “Aquaman” after the commercial success of “Wonder Woman.” “Aquaman “was first introduced in Warner Bros. Pictures movie “Justice League,” even though the movie received mixed reviews critics did love Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman.” The film is set to be released on December 21, 2018, and the full trailer will be released at SDCC on Saturday, July 21.

“Titan”

DC released their first trailer for their new live-action TV show “Titans” at SDCC on Thursday. The show will be released on DC’s new streaming service and will be a darker take on the young superhero team Teen Titans and even went as far as having the team leader of the Titans Robin, who is Batman’s known side-kick say “F!!k Batman”.
