Are there any interesting panels for Saturday’s SDCC@home event? Do you consider Keanu Reeves interesting? If so, then yes, there is.
The event has largely been a success for the SDCC@home event that replaced this year’s traditional San Diego Comic-Con event. So what can you expect as the event rolls into the weekend and it’s last two days?
Well, Saturday isn’t the same heavy hitter that Thursday and Friday were, but if you’re a fan of Keanu Reeves, this might be your day.
Reeves will be on two panels on Saturday, one for the 15th anniversary of Constantine the film, where he’ll be joined by the director and others for a commemorative look back but he’ll pop back up later on in the day to talk about his upcoming film, Bill and Ted 3: Face the Music, where he’ll be joined by Alex Winter, Samara Weaving, Brigette Lundy-Paine and William Sadler. The main players from the crew will be part of it as well.
