Netflix Geeked Announces Big Comic-Con@Home Presence

Things are starting to feel normal again, and that’s a good thing. Conventions are slowly starting to come back, but the larger events still have more of a digital presence. We have known for a while that, for the second year in a row, Comic-Con International would be virtual. So that opens the door to the question of who will attend and who won’t.

The biggest surprise came today when Netflix announced several panels for Comic-Con@Home. Even after holding their own Geeked Week event in June, that’s not stopping the streaming giant for giving the fans even more. Several fan favorites will have panels like Lucifer and the upcoming Masters of the Universe Revelation.

Here is the full list:

Get in on all the action as Jean-Claude Van Damme and director David Charhon offer a peek inside the highly anticipated film, The Last Mercenary, set to premiere globally July 30 on Netflix. In an explosive comeback, Jean-Claude Van Damme stars as Richard Brumère, aka “The Mist,” as a former French secret service special agent turned mercenary, who must urgently return to France when his estranged son is falsely accused of arms and drug trafficking by the government, following a blunder by an overzealous bureaucrat and a mafia operation.

Speaking of the devil, Lucifer himself, Tom Ellis will join executive producers, Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich, to share inside scoop on what is to be expected from the 6th and final season of Lucifer.

Army of the Dead was only the beginning…Be among the first to get a sneak peek of Army of Thieves, the highly anticipated prequel to Zack Snyder’s Netflix blockbuster. Producers Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, and Wesley Coller will be joined by director and star Matthias Schweighöfer plus star Nathalie Emmanuel to reveal the heist that started it all. In this action-packed prequel, Dieter, our favorite safecracker, gets drawn into the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman recruits him to join a crew of Interpol’s most wanted criminals, attempting to heist a sequence of legendary, impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.

It looks like this will be a great opportunity to hype the new Zack Snyder project, which was recently announced. Plus, virtual or not, Jean-Claude Van Damme at Comic-Con is something that I am definitely interested in. Make sure you are subscribed to the Comic-Con@Home YouTube Channel to follow all of the panels coming later this month. Of course, we will be covering all of the big news from the event, so be ready.
