The international mecca of pop culture fan conventions, San Diego Comic-Con 2023, is arriving soon and has released its panel schedule for Thursday and Friday so far. The convention has had a slow comeback since returning from the pandemic. Even though last year’s event had a promising turnout, the ongoing Writer’s strike and an imminent Actor’s strike has affected which studios were coming down to promote their latest projects.

Big companies like Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, HBO, Universal, Sony and Netflix have all opted out to promote their most anticipated material. Plus, other fan events have grown, such as Tudum, Nintendo Direct, and Star Wars Celebration have pulled many fans and the aforementioned studios from the once monopolized pop culture phenomenon. Nonetheless, San Diego Comic-Con will still have multiple promising panels that will thrill fans throughout the week. Although the event is sold out, most sneak peak footage will be released on the internet the week of the Convention.

Here are some of the marquee panels for Thursday and Friday:
