San Diego Comic-Con Science: Your beloved Raytheon Loki has been here!

The annual San Diego Comic Con is just around the corner.

Special feature of 1905 film network  The annual San Diego Comic Con is coming again! This year’s comic-con is still full of stars, crouching tiger, hidden dragon, famous directors such as Spielberg, and superheroes such as Justice League, Raytheon and Panther are also gearing up. Game of Thrones, which has been on the altar all the year round, can’t be underestimated as well as rising star westworld. For a time, the eyes of fans all over the world turned to this beautiful coastal city.

Speaking of the impressive activities of Comic-Con, what Xiaobian first thought of was the one that surprised fans in 2013.

On July 20th, 2013, Hall H of the San Diego Convention and Exhibition Center (the main venue of the comic exhibition) was packed. The staff introduced the post-production to the fans, but the scene suddenly went into darkness and the microphone suddenly lost its sound. This scene made people think that there was an accident.

Suddenly, a thunderous voice resounded through the hall: "Man, look at how low you have fallen!"? Gathered in the dark, like wild animals! " After saying his word, a "lightning" threw a cold white light out of thin air. "Shake Sen" Tom Hiddleston stood proudly on the stage in the gorgeous armor of the evil god Loki, scanning the audience coldly, and the excited screams of the fans almost overturned the roof.

"Shake the Sen" into the play

Later, "Shake the Sen" continued to set a good example, giving people the illusion of watching Shakespeare’s stage plays.From Asgard, the fairy palace, the proud little public performance sometimes called on the audience: "Call my name and be loyal to me!" " Sometimes put your index finger on your lips to signal that everyone is quiet, control the rhythm strongly, and the gas field is breathtaking.

"Shake the Sen" gas field is breathtaking.

In this way, Loki "swept" Hall H with lightning speed/storm. Although "Shake Sen" is very attractive, the glittering logo behind him is equally eye-catching. Non-fans and fans can’t help asking: What kind of grand event is San Diego Comic Con? (Xiaobian won’t tell you, this is the real wonderful conference 23333)
