San Diego Comic Con Postpones In Person Event Again & Goes Virtual For 2021

The 2021 San Diego Comic Con is again switching things up for this year.

The event announced their decision to fans on social media on Monday (March 1), as well as plans for the 2022 event.

“While we are buoyed by the rollout of the vaccine and the growing number of individuals being inoculated, it appears that July will still be too early to safely hold an in-person event of the magnitude of Comic-Con,” the organization shared on their website. “For this reason, we have made the challenging decision to postpone Comic-Con 2021 as an in-person gathering until our 2022 dates, and once again hold this year’s celebration as the free online Comic-Con@Home.”

The virtual fan festival will go down to three days from July 23 to the 25.

However, Comic Con has also planned a smaller in-person event in November as well.

“While we lament the postponement of the in-person Comic-Con, our commitment to this community of fans and our celebration of comics and the related popular arts endures as an important part of who we are,” an additional statement starts out. “As the timing and scope of our larger event factored greatly into our decision to postpone, we believe that launching a smaller in-person event at a later time may be a safe alternative. For this reason, we are happy to announce that San Diego Comic Convention is planning to present a three-day in-person convention in San Diego in November. At this time, we are still working on specific details as to attendance capacity, badge cost, and related information, and those details will be forthcoming.”

“For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020. The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021,” their official website statement reads.

“Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.

Similarly, WonderCon Anaheim, which was to have been held April 10-12, 2020 will return to the Anaheim Convention Center from March 26-28, 2021.” Click here for the

Stephen Amell Gets 'Emotional' During Last Comic-Con With 'Arrow' Cast

The Arrow cast is dishing on the “cinematic” eighth and final season at 2019 Comic-Con!

Stephen Amell, who portrays Oliver Queen on the CW show, stepped out for the TV Guide Magazine Fan Favorites panel at San Diego Convention Center on Friday (July 19) in San Diego.

He was joined by The Flash‘s Candice Patton (Iris West).

Stephen‘s other co-stars Rick Gonzalez (Rene Ramirez), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance), and Juliana Harkavy (Dinah Drake) attended BuzzFeed Presents: A Batsh!t Crazy Bash With The CW’s Batwoman at San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter.

“Last night was super emotional,” Stephen told ET at the event. “It actually caught me off guard, the number of people who came up [to me.] The director of Supergirl took like five minutes to thank me – which feels weird – for getting their break on Arrow.”

“It feels great,” he added about the upcoming season. “I think that [for] the cast and the crew, it’s starting to feel a teensy bit like a victory lap. It feels awesome … I was about to drop an F-bomb, but it feels awesome!”

“I think it’s a tribute,” David Ramsey (John Diggle) chimed in. “There’s a certain amount of what Stephen said: a victory lap. There’s a lot of stuff from the past. There’ll be some old faces that will show up. And I think, in terms of the pacing, it’s changed because we usually do this in 22 episodes, and now we’re doing it in 10, so it’s going to have the sense of a movie every time you watch an episode.”

“It almost feels cinematic,” Katie, who will be directing episode three, shared. “Each episode is huge.”

Catch Stephen Amell in the final season of Arrow when it premieres on October 15!
