New York City Comic Con is slowly coming to a close. One day when I’m out of college and I make more money to put to traveling, I will show up at New York Comic Con hopefully in cosplay. Until then, I will just observe from the depths of the internet. I wanted to share my favorite announcements/geeky news from this convention.
Marvel Defenders: Villain Casting & Iron Fist Trailer
Sigourney Weaver was cast as the villain and an Iron Fist teaser trailer was leaked on the internet. Also I just want to take a moment and say how much I love Krysten Ritter’s bright blue boots/heels. I need to get a pair of my own. Marvel and Netflix are a great pair as I have thoroughly enjoyed every single Netflix Marvel show
Clockwork Dagger Book
Thanks to my wonderful Twin Cities Geek editor, I was able to get a free PDF copy of this new book. Apparently it’s a steampunk science fiction book and it sounds really interesting. I’m currently reading a couple of books at once, but I plan to devour this as soon as possible. I love free books especially since I wasn’t able to make it to New York Comic Con.
Batwoman Solo Comic
A Batwoman solo comic is in the works and did I mention that she will be a fabulous queer and lesbian superhero? I’m excited. I love seeing different LGBTQIA+ groups represented in comics so to see this happening by DC is a step in the right direction. This won’t be released until February 2017, but I’m keeping my eye on it until then.
Wonder Woman Statues
There were a couple images released of Wonder Woman statues to coincide with the release of the DC film. They look so intricate and replicate Gal Gadot’s natural beauty. I loved this one with the majestic horse and Wonder Woman raising her sword ready to defend her honor. This is probably the movie I’m most excited for because it’s Wonder Woman and her appearance in Batman v. Superman was one of my favorite scenes.
This ends my round up of New York Comic Con news, are you a huge fan of the Defenders like I am? Let’s discuss the Iron Fist trailer in the comments!
