After originally hanging up the cape on this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, organizers decided to instead go virtual with [email protected], an online convention running July 22 – 26 that anybody with a WiFi connection can partake in from the comfort of their own homes. (And, better still, for free!)
This year’s schedule — featuring more than 350 panels — isn’t skimping on the stars, either: Keanu Reeves, Amy Poehler, The Walking Dead cast and Lord and Miller are only some of the famous faces who will be Zooming into their respective panels, to stream via Comic-Con’s website and YouTube channel.
Which means no badges, no waiting in lines, no epic quest to secure a seat in Hall H. Just you, your sofa and this list of must-see movie and TV panels. All indicated times are in PT.
This article will be updated as the full schedule is revealed.
See Wednesday’s full programing schedule here.
