SDCC 2018: Sights and sounds from Wednesday preview night

Check out all the most important sights at SDCC’s Wednesday preview night.

AiPT! is reporting from the SDCC 2018 show floor in full force this year with interviews, news, and a first-hand look at everything we can get our hands on. The day started with a sighting of Kurt Sutter’s new show Mayans splashed across a multi-story hotel and ended with Netflix’s Iron Fist getting a full five-story advertisement splashed on a building in the Gaslamp area. San Diego goes all out with the biggest comic and entertainment show of the year and it’s obvious with every turn.
