The New York Comic-Con 2020, officially dubbed Metaverse, is going to be headlined by the virtual events for The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and many others. Several events that are going to happen in the 2020 virtual comic con have been announced, including the headlining panels of Doctor Who, and The Walking Dead. The virtual event is officially called the Metaverse, and it will be aired online from October 8 to October 11. As we all are aware that large gatherings are not allowed in the days of coronavirus pandemic, the conventions have to make arrangements to adopt online, remote models.
The San Diego Comic-Con At Home did whatever it could do at its best earlier this summer, to carry some of the usual community magic of the event and the excitement of the fans to a virtual setting. However, the event was not able to live up to the normal level of the event. DCFanDome also made its attempt recently to conquer the virtual convention space, and it was well-received by the fans. The event got so much appraisal and was so much success that the Warner Bros. may be looking to monetize a content similar to this one with a fan-focus in the future.
New York Comic-Con 2020 Details Revealed
The lineup and the schedule for N.Y.C.C. 2020 was reported by The Wrap on Wednesday, with the biggest-name attractions being events for the three Walking Dead shows of A.M.C. and a panel of Doctor Who is featuring Mandip Gill and Jodie Whittaker. As N.Y.C.C. will occur directly between the return of The Walking Dead and the premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond /on October 4, and the premiere of Fear The Walking Dead’s sixth season on October 11, The Walking Dead events should be of particular interest.
In addition to The Walking Dead and Doctor Who, the lineup of the event includes panels for D.C.’s Stargirl, a panel for What We Do in the Shadows, an Archer “cast trivia showdown,” a chat with famed video game designer Sid Meier, and various events for several upcoming Hulu projects including M.O.D.O.K., Monsterland, Animaniacs, and Helstrom.
In the meantime, New York Comic-Con 2020 will hopefully be offering the fans a weekend of connectedness and fun. It is possible that more guests or events could be announced in the remaining month leading up to the Metaverse, but the current lineup seems to have some good content on the way for both the new and old franchises. New York Comic-Con 2020 will air online from October 8 to October 11.
