The annual pop culture convention is one of the biggest events in the entertainment calendar and attracts thousands of fans from around the world as Hollywood provides a sneak peek at a host of upcoming films and TV shows.

After last year’s relatively fallow installment, a host of big names are set to make a comeback to the famous Hall H inside San Diego Convention Centre.

Stars of Game Of Thrones will mark the end of the hugely popular series with a panel on Friday, set to feature creators David Benioff and DB Weiss, as well as actors such as Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Isaac Hempstead Wright.

Fresh off the enormous successes of Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige will be giving fans a glimpse at its upcoming line-up on Saturday.

Marvel has promised “an inside look at the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe”, leading to speculation films such as Black Widow and Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 could be announced.
