20th Century Fox is officially returning to San Diego Comic-Con this year with an 1 hour-long Hall H panel on Thursday, July 20, starting at 11:30 am.
Last year, Fox skipped the event as a result of piracy concerns due to the fact that their Comic-Con exclusive trailers for Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse both leaked online shortly after a packed Hall H panel in 2015.
As for what fans can expect to see at this year’s panel, Fox’s upcoming releases include films such as Deadpool 2, X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants, The Predator, Alita: Battle Angel, Maze Runner: The Death Cure and a slew of Avatar sequels, which are all likely candidates for the studio’s presentation. However, none of these films have been confirmed by Fox as of yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Other major Friday panels include the DCU Original Movies 10th Anniversary panel at 2:15 pm and Netflix’s Hall H panel featuring David Ayer’s Bright and Adam Wingard’s live-action Death Note movie at 3:15 PM.

San Diego Comic-Con 2017 kicks off on July 20. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more updates and live coverage from the event.
5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe
World building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.
Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
