All The Best Comic-Con 2019 Cosplay: Avengers, DC, It, Power Rangers, More
San Diego Comic-Con has closed on a huge week for entertainment. The show had panels for movies, TV, video games, and more, and saw tons of new trailers, announcements, and news headed out of the con. There was also plenty of other stuff to talk about, including merchandise, events around the city, and of course, cosplay.
Given SDCC is a celebration of such a wide range of things, the type of cosplay you see runs the gamut. You'll find characters from Marvel, DC, Power Rangers, Lord of the Rings, It, and countless other franchises, both well known and obscure, as you walk in and around the convention center. Below, we've rounded up many of the best cosplay photos we took from the first day, including those starring Pennywise, Catwoman, Spider-Man, Captain America, and a variety of others.
Meanwhile, there's all sorts of news happening, both in terms of official reveals and announcements and interesting anecdotes. Case in point: We've learned some new details about the making of Avengers: Endgame and how it could have had at least one plot point that was much darker than what ended up in the final movie.
Let us know your favorites in the comments, and stay tuned for much more from the show.
