Here are links and my comments to items I found interesting from this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
IGN has been providing some live coverage that I’ve seen on their YouTube channel, so that was nice to see some interviews and such.
Kurt Russell will be playing both Ego the Living Planet’s humanoid form and Star Lord’s father. Shame they have to not only not use J’Son but twist Ego too. Hopefully we get to see him as a planet at some point and we don’t repeat the whole Galactus cloud mistake. I’m sure either way, it will be amazing.
I like how Karen Gillan is coming back too! Sylvester Stallone has a role too, that I didn’t know! Which I feel is a common theme for the day as there were loads of reveals or confirmations that I had no idea about.
Thanks to Marvel Entertainment for hosting this video!
I’m two episodes into Sherlock, I’m watching it to get pumped for Doctor Strange. Pretty good thus far. I do like how it is only ten episodes.
I wish Rachel McAdams was Clea but that’s okay. This is the trailer I wanted, with proper Doctor Strange, who cares about the surgeon Strange? I like him dressed as Mordo so that would explain that guy’s outfit. Strange’s movie costume is awesome!
New Marvel Movie logo which I have below. Music by LOST’s Michael Giacchino. Chris Hardwick moderated the panel and I realize now that I have gone like two weeks without watching @Midnight. I’m not a huge fan of Hulu’s Watchlist redesign. Black Panther starts filming in January. Thor 3 is filming right now. Sounds like Benedict Cumbebatch had a Loki like entrance, which sounds amazing! Thor 3 takes place right after Civil War, so they address why Hulk and Thor were not present for it. Tom Holland showed up too! Mantis is going to be in Guardians 2, which explains her being in Avengers Alliance now. Looks like we get teen Groot in the film.
Thanks to moviemaniacsDE for hosting this video!
I miss the comic art work, it made it feel timeless whereas this one probably will dated by the time the next phase of the films starts.
New Logo –
Confirmed Actress –
I can’t wait to see Brie Larson in the uniform! I’ve started following her on Twitter now too. I still only know her as Rachel from Community (4×8 / 5×6 / 5×9). She stole those episodes! I need to watch Room. I keep forgetting she was Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim, I need to rewatch that film too. oh yeah, she was the hot girl in Spectacular Now, such a great film! I’ve been meaning to watch Trainwreck and Don Juan. Should I watch United States of Tara? I haven’t really enjoyed Toni Collette in the few things I’ve seen her in. oh and I should add Tanner Hall / Trouble with Bliss / Digging for Fire to the list too. I’m not sure about Greenberg.
Such a fun way to make the announcement too! Thanks to Flicks and the City for hosting this video!
Thanks to Marvel Entertainment for being so bold to host this video!
oh man, that looks sort of intense and crazed – which I’m all for! I wish we had cable so we can watch it or maybe by that point, Hulu would have a deal with FX so we can watch it.
Death of X is going to be a crossover and it is going to include two new series, the other one is below. This one is sort of in the same reign as Avengers v X-Men, so let’s hope Magik is in this. She isn’t on the cover, so that’s a shame.
Inhumans vs X-Men isn’t part of Death of X, it is its own crossover that takes place in the present day. Apparently an angry fan asked about the scabs being members of the Guardians, did the fan mean Pryde and Grimm? The crew should have mention the upcoming Grounded arc that appears to just be about the main Guardians, or Movie Guardians.
Thanks to Wonder Bros. Pictures for hosting this video.
We still need to watch Batman v Superman. I totally love that these trailers are being made for the public to enjoy too! This has a lot of Steve Hunter, right? Like, is he in this a whole lot? I do love them giving Wonder Woman her classic colors, that armor looks awesome! Gal Gadot is a very attractive woman, she looks timeless in this trailer. That DC logo looks even worst now that Marvel got a new one. That lasso is super golden too! She’s a total bad arse! I’m super pumped for this!
They hosted this one too.
It still bugs me that the TV DCW universe is separate from the films, I’ll get over it but having two Barry Allens is not great. I do like Affleck and making him the lead of the film is the right direction. No Superman in this but I’ve seen him on a poster so he will be there. Cyborg looks pretty decent. I like Aquaman, that final joke didn’t need to be there. Affleck and Gadot have great chemistry.
Well I’m less excited about this as it is a digital comic and it ties in with Contest of Champions, a nice comic but you know, not part of the Death of X storyline or Inhumans v X-Men.
I predict they find a way to bring Ward back, as there must have been some sort of cloned DNA somewhere that Hydra found. Can’t believe this show is going to have Ghost Rider on it!?! Even if it is for a minute of screen time, that’s insane! I’m definitely done with the Inhumans so let’s start diving into the proper Marvel Universe. I bet Nicholas Cage would be available for voice over or an appearance, what is that guy up to these days anyways?
Thanks to ABC Television Network for hosting this!
Ghost Rider looks pretty great, I can only imagine he will look like that on the show, if not, better with more time given to the effect.
This has Dani Pudi, so I will give the first episode a try. Shame they couldn’t work in Chase Cameron as she was wasted on Supergirl. A comedy version of the DEA could work. Also Ron Funches seals the deal too, for me. A rather short panel but they did get to see the pilot so that would have been fun.
I like that Unworthy Thor is about Thor finding Ultimate Thor’s hammer, that sounds like a neat and safe way to remember the Ultimate Universe. I’m a nut for those “Kills / Destroys / Beats Up the Marvel Universe” and Squirrel Girl totally deserves to be added to that list. Once again, I’m all for Young Scott being a member of the Champions. If Jean joined, that would be all five of the original X-Men having been members of the Champions, as well. Let’s hope she doesn’t as we want that series to get to issue twelve, at least. I wonder which other characters would be taking a road trip with Hawkeye in Occupy Avengers? I do like a good road movie / comic. Oh wow, Winter Solider is still dealing with the aftereffects of Original Sin, in his new Thunderbolts series. That’s some baggage! Is it just me or would Doctor Doom never take on the name of another person? Infamous Doctor Doom would have been a great title! I doubt Iron Man ensures that it gets a certain number of readers. I wish we got the cast of characters in Sorcerers Supreme. I would have asked that question once the Q&A opened up.
Not really anything to add, I get they don’t want to spoil issue three so it is mostly talk about events that lead up to it and the series itself.
Netflix US & Canada hosted all of these, which I appreciate!
This show looks like Daredevil good! I’m super jazzed for this!
This is a pure graphic tease but it is fun to watch it unfold.
I won’t post this one as it isn’t much more than a gif with audio. I’m excited about it getting a third season, we’re two deep into Season Two and liking it a bunch.
So great that Misty Knight is going to be part of the show! Rosario Dawson keeps being the connection that all of the Marvel Netflix shows have, which I like her, her character and the concept so I’m all for it. Sounds like she’ll be in either Iron Fist or Defenders too. I like how they describe each episode as “relentless” which the opposite of that is how I felt about Jessica Jones. We’ll watch an episode and maybe waited a week for the next one. Unlike Daredevil that we tried to get back to that show as soon as we were done catching up on our current shows. I wish I knew more about Cage, outside of Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Avengers. I don’t really know him as a solo hero or his rogues gallery. I wonder if Colleen Wing will show up in this, that would be awesome get to the Daughters of the Dragon spin-off. Just Googling Colleen Wing (as I wasn’t sure of their duo name – I got it right) she’s suppose to be in Iron Fist so that’s awesome! They should get Iron Fist in the Cage show too! I did like that with Jessica Jones, not too much time was given to Cage but when he showed up, the show sort of stopped for him. He was the best part of that show. I wish there was a way to watch these panels, even without the graphics, as I would love that. Like, if SDCC could record all of these and then people had a chance to order like five or ten panels and they made the personalize DVD for $20, I would buy that,
I really need to watch Game of Thrones as that cast is blowing up! This was quick but it looks good.
The poster is the Iron First symbol / tattoo, and it looks great. Not something they could really screw up or could screw up spectacularly. I’m glad they went with the traditional look.
Really glad the X-Men were not forgotten! Death of X is going to be a miniseries. I’m not thrilled that it is being considered a crossover – that means it could be expensive! We’ll learn Cyclops and Emma’s fate – I’ve been missing Emma as she’s one of like five unaccounted for big names. Uncanny X-Men will have a story about the Hellfire Club – hopefully putting them back into the league of greatness that they started out from. Old Man Logan / All New Wolverine will be having their predicted crossover. OML hasn’t been all that bad, the two issues of it that I read. Extraordinary X-Men will be dealing with the fallout of their section of the Apocalypse Wars. Illyana and Sapna are going to have a storyline too, which I’m all for. Glad the X-Titles are not stopping for the flashback tale that is Death of X.
So irritating that Inhuman discussion comes up in a X-Men panel. Get your own panel, Inhumans! Alonso is tired of hearing all of the talk about the X-Men demise, but if he wanted it to stop, they could be doing more with the X-Franchise.
Sounds like the Original Five are not going back in time, any time soon. Bunn should get Rachel in Uncanny X-Men! I haven’t noticed that Havok and Polaris haven’t been seen. I would not be interested in an Iceman (either one) solo series. Unless Magik was in it, so it’ll have to be Proper Iceman.
Just like the original series, there will be delays that affect other series too. Civil War II 5 will be out late August instead of mid-August. That means other titles will be pushed back as well. None that I read so that’s okay but I have been reading the main title.
X23 is being mind controlled and killing fools. Sounds like the superhero community will have to go after her, just like they did with Wolverine in the original. Here is hoping that people remember Kitty played a decent part in that original story as has a closeness with X23. She could serve as the same role! Since X23 is being mind controlled, I wonder if people will be all over her dick like they were with Cyclops when he was mind controlled and not allowed to be forgotten about. Unlike all the times Wolverine was mind controlled, killed a slew of people and others are just cool with it. I bet it goes in that direction.
