Over the last week or so, some people have been spreading complete BS about certain trailers or reveals being shown at ComicCon@Home in July. Basically certain accounts see an announcement of an online Comic Con thing, and make up stuff about trailers or reveals in the hopes that they’re right. Well, even SDCC doesn’t know what ComicCon@Home will be yet, and they have only just begun talking to stakeholders of SDCC as to what what can be included.
The Hollywood Reporter has a story about the online event, which follows WonderCon@Home (which really just streamed some old panel content and was an online storefront for dealers who couldn’t attend the show), and they have just begun to figure out what the event will be:
“I think it is an iteration that we hope will convey some of the excitement of Comic-Con in whatever format we and our stakeholders can create. We are reaching out to various entities who are usually involved in the physical show to see if, and how best, we can incorporate them into an online version.”
“There are several different ideas floating about [concerning the format and timing of the event] but we are still in the nuts-and-bolts planning phase, which is why our tease about Comic-Con@Home was deliberately void of any specifics,” Glanzer said. “But there are certainly a great many options from which to choose.”
If Comic Con doesn’t even know what they’re going to do for ComicCon@Home, random Twitter accounts claiming specific trailers are “confirmed” to be there really don’t know what they’re talking about.
