Despite ongoing concerns over the coronavirus, the people behind San Diego Comic-Con are still hopeful for the convention’s 2020 date.
The coronavirus has affected the entertainment industry in ways that one can only describe as unprecedented. Films and television show productions have been put on halt and their release dates have been pushed back. Conventions have sadly not been an exception to this with many having been flat out canceled or pushing back their dates. The big question looming on everyone’s minds, however, is how the coronavirus would affect the 2020 San Diego Comic-Con show.
San Diego Comic-Con is, of course, the biggest comic book convention in the United States and has become the place where many major Hollywood projects are announced and release early trailers and promotional material for. The convention was first held in 1970 and has continued to grow over the years into something far bigger. While many other conventions have been pushed back and/or canceled amid the coronavirus epidemic, the people behind the San Diego convention are still hopeful that it will still host its 2020 show.
In a recent post on their official Twitter account, San Diego Comic-Con, unfortunately, did not confirm what its plans were for the 2020 show one way or the other. It did say that they were hopeful that they could still have the convention in July and that they would continue to monitor the situation with local authorities. You can see the full Tweet below:
To our amazing Comic-Con and WonderCon fans: We understand how difficult the current climate has been for all of us and appreciate your continued support through these trying times. No one is as hopeful as we are that we will be able to celebrate #SDCC2020 together come July. 1/2
