There were a lot of good stuff that happened in
the recent San Diego Comic-Con 2017 but it all boiled down to superheroes being
the biggest stars this year.
The new trailer banks on Wonder Woman's recent success by
showcasing the Amazonian kicking ass with new members the Flash, Cyborg, and
Aquaman. It's a big improvement over earlier trailers and provides a lot of

If you ask me, the first season was pretty self-contained and could have ended that way. A follow-up could spell disaster, but when the Duffer brothers announced that more seasons were to come, you know there are really good treats that will arrive just in time for Halloween.
With a killer lineup of shows and movies to watch, both 2017 and 2018 might just spell the end of your social life.
