The Walking Dead, Iron Fist and More
Hot on the heels of Netflix’s Luke Cage comes Iron Fist. This panel is set for Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET on the Main Stage and will feature star Finn Jones of Game of Thrones fame.
AMC’s The Walking Dead panel will take place at Madison Square Garden Saturday at 5:30 p.m., a couple weeks before the big season-seven premiere on October 23.
Marvel and DC
Marvel is hosting a variety of fun panels, including “50 Years of Black Panther” and “Marvel NOW!: Divided We Stand,” both Friday. “Divided We Stand” will examine the after-effects of “Civil War II,” in which we saw War Machine and the Incredible Hulk meet their demise. Marvel’s owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
DC Comics is offering up “Rebirth” Saturday, featuring storylines around comic greats like the Green Arrow, Deathstroke, Wonder Woman and other icons of print.
Power Rangers, War for the Planet of the Apes
The latest in the Planet of the Apes series will give fans an exclusive sneak peek at the film, out next summer. Andy Serkis is actually going to be on-site Thursday at 8:30 p.m. at the Regal E-Walk Theater. The acclaimed motion-capture actor will also be part of a panel the next day. Madison Square Garden on Saturday will also house a Q&A for next year’s Power Rangers film that’s an update of the classic ’90s show.
