Thursday's Headlines | SDCC Gives Update

The official Comic-Con International: San Diego Twitter account has posted an update regarding whether the con will go ahead with its planned July 23-26 dates amidst the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

“To our amazing Comic-Con and WonderCon fans: We understand how difficult the current climate has been for all of us and appreciate your continued support through these trying times,” reads the statement. “No one is as hopeful as we are that we will be able to celebrate [Comic-Con International: San Diego 2020] together come July.”

“As we continue to monitor the situation with local authorities, we will post updates on our social channels!” it concludes. “Until then, remember: ‘A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles,’ — Christopher Reeve.”

Comic-Con International already postponed its other California convention, Los Angeles’ WonderCon 2020, which was scheduled to take place April 10-12 but was put off indefinitely due to coronavirus.
