Comic-Con Day 1 : D&D, Teen Wolf, Vampire Academy, National Treasure and more!

For the first time, there’s quite a few panels that aren’t in-person – with the talent zooming in on screen

Comic-Con San Diego is back! – well, as back as it can be during the lingering pandemic.
For the first time, there’s quite a few panels that aren’t in-person – with the talent zooming in on screen, there’s masks everywhere (and not the “V for Vendetta” or ‘Pennywise’ variety), and the lines look quite punishing for anyone without a press pass. I can only imagine how Saturday is going to be.
Alas, just glad to have Comic-Con back! the virtual thing just wasn’t the same, was it!?

Here’s a rundown of what happened today – new trailer releases, sneak peeks, and casting announcements :
