While this year’s SDCC all took place virtually, repackaged as [email protected], one of the great things about the event was that anyone can “get into” a panel. No more waiting in line, overnight, to make sure you got a seat in the notorious Hall H. Every panel can be watched on YouTube, over and over and over again.
Because of this, we now know which panels the masses are most interested in, as all of YouTube’s videos display the view count. So what do people care about the most? As of Thursday, July 23, it was obvious that people wanted news about the long-delayed New Mutants movie–which, don’t worry, is still aiming for August theatrical release.
Below, you’ll find the list of the most-viewed Comic-Con panels from this year. These panels and numbers will be updated throughout the weekend, so we won’t know what the most popular panel of Comic-Con 2020 is until the end of Sunday, July 26.
In the meantime, here’s what people were excited to learn more about on Day One of Comic-Con.
