San Diego Comic-Con 2023 is underway, and as usual, the event is filled with announcements for upcoming comics, games, and (most importantly) movies and TV shows we can enjoy on our favorite streaming services.
The event wasn’t as crowded as usual — some streaming and media brands were on hiatus for a year due to uncertainty caused by the ongoing writers’ and actors’ strikes in the U.S. — but there was still plenty to get excited about.
Here are four of our favorite announcements (plus a few extras) from SDCC 2023 so far.
1. MCU Secretly Invades Hulu
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is taking a break at SDCC this year, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a new Marvel TV show from Marvel, Secret Invasion, no longer exclusive to Disney+ — at least not for the next few weeks. That’s because the first three episodes of the series will be streaming on Hulu (Disney’s streaming service) between now and August 17.
In an early preview of the series we found Secret Invasion becomes a “down-to-earth, darkly toned, sophisticated spy thriller with a talented cast and brilliant performances.” Unfortunately, it “hasn’t yet become a true masterpiece”. Even if it’s not one of the best Disney+ shows, it wouldn’t hurt for Hulu subscribers to give it a try. Worst case scenario, you liked the first few episodes and paid for a month of Disney+ to finish it.
2. Gen V will take over Prime in September
if you prefer boys’ The gritty superhero action brand then we have good news!At SDCC we find spinoff series Fifth Generation The Prime Video premiere is scheduled for September 29.
Fifth Generation – Coincides with the following events boys Season 4 – Tells the story of a group of young college superstars in training.But don’t expect this to be a cute coming-of-age origin story, it’s boys We are talking. When classes learn that superheroes aren’t always good guys, we’ll see students “test physical and moral boundaries and compete for the school’s coveted top ranking,” Amazon said.
SDCC is also expected to reveal more details about the second season invincible, also an animated superhero show on Prime Video. IGN revealed a new poster For the series, we expect to announce more during a panel discussion on July 21 at 5:45pm PT (1:45 BST / 10:45 AEST on Saturday July 22).
3. The finale of “Ash’s Pokémon Journey” is coming to Netflix
September will also usher in the finale Ash’s Pokémon Ultimate Journey The farewell tour, which we found out will be available on Netflix on September 8th.
The Japanese dub has already wrapped up Ash’s adventures and added a new cast of characters, but this version on Netflix will let viewers finally watch the finale of Ash’s storyline with the official English voice cast.
We also got an early look at the English dub pokemon horizon The show follows protagonists Liko and Roy and their respective partners Pokémon Sprigatito and Fuecoco as they embark on an adventure of their own.
4. Maximize animation programs
Despite some serious cutbacks to animated shows on the Max following the Warner Bros. Discovery merger, the streaming service is still home to many great cartoons. At SDCC 2023, we received announcements for two of them.
We’ve received a new trailer ahead of its July 27 release harley quinn DC also shared with Twitter. In a brief speech before the trailer airs, Harley (played by Carly Cuoco) tells us we can expect “more sex, more drama, more Bane being Bane, and more Halliwi” in the series that focuses on her struggles with life as a hero.
