Variety’s First-Ever Geek Power List, in Honor of Comic-Con

To celebrate this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Variety put together its first-ever Geek Power List, comprised of the biggest movers and shakers in geekdom.

Every year, the buzziest shows and biggest blockbusters make the pilgrimage to San Diego for Comic-Con, and with them come A-list stars — like “Deadpool’s” Ryan Reynolds, “Wonder Woman’s” Gal Gadot, and the cast of Netflix’s uber-hit “Stranger Things” — and the people calling the shots on these power franchises, like Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, Marvel’s Kevin Feige, and DC Comics’ Geoff Johns.

Check out our list below to see which stars and shot-callers made the cut.
