SDCC 2022: The Top Ten Best Product Launches

The biggest pop culture event in the calendar returned last weekend.

Fans from all over the world flocked to San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con, which dominated the headlines all weekend. Marvel Studios revealed the full timeline for Phase Five, as well as announcing that two Avengers movies would release in 2025 – The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.

Elsewhere, we had a whole host of brand new trailers, including first looks at Dungeons And Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Shazam: Fury Of The Gods, and of course, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
