5 of the biggest takeaways from Comic-Con 2018
LOS ANGELES (AP) — After four days of lines, sun and stars, Comic-Con 2018 has come to a close, and San Diego is stripping itself of all the branding plastering its buildings, windows and buses.
Warner Bros. was easily the buzziest presentation of the event with footage and celebrities from “Shazam!,” ”Aquaman” and even “Wonder Woman 1984,” which just started filming.
