The Reader Post – July 24th

These are all news from last week, from Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd.

This has been comic con week so there has been a lot of news. Of course, I am sure I have missed some news, and I decided not to add everything or else this post would be enormous (I included the main things about the shows and movies I follow). If I don’t add the source link is because I have learnt it through the panels. And as always, links for the trailers and promos are the videos themselves, as that is how I came upon them.
