SDCC 2014 kicks off soon, and we’ve already told you what’s planned for Preview Night (July 23rd). Here’s a quick recap along with the numerous horror highlights of Day 1 (July 24th).
Per usual, what we’re posting is just the tip of the iceberg with panels running all day and evening. Check out our picks below, and be sure to visit the official San Diego Comic-Con 2014 website for the full lineup.
PREVIEW NIGHT: WEDNESDAY, JULY 23, 2014
6:00pm – Special Sneak Peek Pilot Screenings
Constantine: Based upon the characters from DC Comics and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (Dexter) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), Constantine reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a morally challenged character who doesnâ€™t come down on the side of either good or evil â€¦ but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.
iZombie: Co-created and executive produced by Rob Thomas & Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars), along with executive producers Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (also of Veronica Mars), Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia â€œLivâ€ Moore, a 25-year-old medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life â€¦ until sheâ€™s turned into a zombie. Liv transfers her residency to the coronerâ€™s office for access to the brains she must reluctantly eat, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpseâ€™s memories. With her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she now solves homicides to quiet the voices in her head. iZombie is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for Vertigo.
Also being shown that evening are “The Flash” and “Teen Titans Go!”
