Let's be honest. Every year, Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC) continues to grow – and what was once the pantheon for all things comics has become the place to be if you're a film or television series looking to make traction with an eager geek fanbase looking to rest their eyeballs on something worthy. Then there are the "con veterans," returning once again (we see you, Star Trek: Picard's Sir Patrick Stewart!) to show their love and appreciation for the fan support – or in some isntances, giving attendees a final chance to say goodbye.
With a Bleeding Cool team doing it's very best to cover as much of the SDCC experience as possible for you, we're giving you a chance to join-in on our coverage live. Over the next four days, we'll be hosting live-blogs for a number of the buzz-worthy panels at play – today, it's a deep-dive into a wide range of shows: from the Star Trek and Orville universes to a visit from Marvel Studios and a journey to the DC Universe side of things.
Our live-blog coverage goes live on our website approximately 5-10 minutes before the start of each panel – here's how the calendar looks for Saturday, July 20th:
