Today marks the start of San Diego Comic Con, the annual celebration of comic books, TV shows, films, and collectibles that is the biggest pop culture event of the year. The next couple of days are going to be a geek’s dream true, with trailers and information about upcoming releases coming fast and furiously. Since we have been showcasing such genre entertainment in our ongoing Summer of Sci-Fi posts, we wanted to give you the opportunity to discuss all things superhero movie-related — from Superman: The Movie to Howard the Duck to Avengers: Infinity War to Deadpool 2 and beyond.
