San Diego Comic-Con 2018 rolls on, with Day 2 bringing even more news about everything from The Walking Dead and Star Trek: Discovery to Venom and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. And, as with the first day, there remains a ton of great cosplay, as fans of various movies, shows, and games wander the San Diego Convention Center.
With Comic-Con representing such a wide array of franchises and types of media, there’s a huge amount of diversity in the cosplay to see. On Thursday, we spotted a variety of characters from Game of Thrones, Star Wars, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, among others. Those were again represented on Friday, but we also spotted some others, including Skyrim’s Dragonborn, Captain Marvel, It‘s Pennywise, and Black Panther.
SDCC’s second day brought with it word that The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln will officially leave the program after Season 9. We also got new trailers for both that and Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead, while Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 got a trailer and new details. But it wasn’t at SDCC itself that the biggest entertainment news of the day was revealed.
James Gunn, director and writer of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, was fired by Disney and will not be involved with the upcoming third film. The move was made in response to old tweets of Gunn’s that surfaced online in which he discussed various controversial subjects. Gunn doesn’t deny having written them, but did attempt to explain and apologize for them. Nevertheless, Disney and Marvel are done with Gunn. As a result of the news coming out, we didn’t see the director make an appearance during the Sony Pictures panel as expected. He was believed to be there to reveal a new movie project, possibly a horror film we heard about last year.
We’ll continue to report all of the biggest news from Comic-Con, so stay tuned to GameSpot. You can also expect plenty more cosplay from the event as it continues.
