On Comic-Con’s biggest day, there will be online-only panels from What We Do in the Shadows, Family Guy, Agents of SHIELD and Bill and Ted

The fourth day of the online-only Comic-Con@Home on Saturday, July 25, will feature Keanu Reeves, more Keanu Reeves and the cast of “What We Do in the Shadows.”

Canceled because of COVID-19, Comic-Con International decided on broadcasting all panels at Youtube.com/user/ComicCon.

Saturday is traditionally Comic-Con’s biggest day, but its online event appears to be much calmer. Notably absent are Star Wars and the film divisions of Marvel and DC.

The big draws Saturday will likely be Keanu Reeves and the rest of the cast of the new “Bill and Ted” movie, the cast of “What We Do in the Shadows,” and many animation favorites like “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons.”

Here are some highlights with official descriptions courtesy of the folks at Comic-Con. For a complete schedule, go here. Note: Some panels do not have YouTube links yet.

Agents of SHIELD

For seven seasons Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has managed to take us on one wild ride after another. The show is coming to an end with season seven, which premiered on May 27, and we are excited to celebrate the show with this panel. It is one thing to explore the amazing, and sometimes scary, abilities of inhumans (mutants), and quite another to take these stories into a matrix-like world, into space and even on a time-traveling adventure. Join the Fleet Science Center and executive producers, writers, and actors from Marvel’s immensely popular TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as they reveal how these stories came to life and discuss with San Diego scientists if they got the science right. Panelists are Jeffrey Bell (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunner, executive producer, and writer), Andrea Decker (Fleet Science Center, moderator), Dr. Virginia De Sa (professor in the Cognitive Science Department at UC San Diego), Elizabeth Henstridge (actor, Jemma Simmons), Dr. Anila Kanchan Madiraju (research associate at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies), Melissa Miller (scientist and science writer at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography), James Oliver (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. co-producer and writer), Sharla Oliver (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. co-producer and writer), Dr. Troy Sandberg (postdoctoral researcher at UC San Diego), Joel Stoffer (actor, Enoch), and Craig Titley (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer and writer).
