Each and every year Amazon seems to have a bigger and bigger presence at San Diego Comic-Con and for 2019 they appear to be gearing up to the biggest yet. The website, Cheddar recently spoke with Amazon Studios and they confirmed that they will indeed be onsite for San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and plan to rent out a 60,000 square foot space off-site.
We are assuming it will be the area where the immense “Jack Ryan” off-site exhibit was located last year, but this has not yet been confirmed and only our own speculation. Amazon Studios plans to promote it’s three brand new series, “The Expanse”, “Carnival Row” and “The Boys” at this year’s Con. Additionally, Cheddar revealed that Amazon is planning “participatory theater, stage performance and tech” exhibits during the day and that the space will also host screenings and parties as well.
“The Boys” which is based upon the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and starring Karl Urban, Elisabeth Shue, and Chace Crawford, is set in “a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame”, so it is certainly a perfect fit for the SDCC crowd.
The teaser trailer and release date for “Carnival Row” starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne in a story following mythical creatures who have fled their war-torn homeland and gathered in the city as tensions are simmering between citizens and the growing fantasy creature immigrant population has also been revealed and we couldn’t be more excited. The series will launch on August 30th.
