Comic-Con@Home: where to watch and essential dates

Stuck for something to do as summer drags on? Well, scroll down to discover where and when you can stream the first-ever online edition of San Diego Comic-Con...


Hang on, Comic-Con 2020 is still going ahead?

It is indeed but owing to the disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, Comic-Con is going online for the first time in its 51-year history. 

Does that mean we can watch it at home?

It most certainly does. Comic-Con@Home (the official name for this year's event) can be streamed online. So, for those who've wanted to go but have balked at the cost of a plane ticket to San Diego, this is your ideal opportunity to geek out from the comfort of your own sofa.

When does Comic-Con@Home run from/to?

It runs from Wednesday 22nd July to Sunday 26th July. Panels will run from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th.

What can we expect to see?

Understandably, Comic-Con@Home has been scaled back compared to previous years, with little in the way of Marvel or DC coverage. However, some highlights are listed below. (Times are in BST.)

Friday 24th July 6pm: Charlize Theron: Evolution of a Badass

Mad Max and Bombshell star Theron hosts a Q&A and talks fans through her remarkable career so far.

Saturday 25th July 8pm: Keanu Reeves on Constantine's 15th anniversary

The actor joins director Francis Lawrence and producer Akiva Goldsman as they look back on the demon-hunting action epic.

Saturday 25th July 11pm: Bill & Ted Q&A hosted by Kevin Smith

The Clerks helmer will try his best to stay calm as he interviews Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter ahead of the release of Bill & Ted Face the Music.
