SAN DIEGO COMIC CON!!!!!

What began in 1970 as a couple of guys sitting around talking about their comic books has now grown into a multimillion dollar convention. Where people from around the world all travel to San Diego California for 4 days to get the latest in movies, television, games, toys, and of Corse, comics. San Diego Comic Con has once again come and gone. I am beaten, I am broken, but I will give you my thoughts on everything major that came out the past 4 days. I’ve included links to the panels for anyone that wants to watch themselves, curtesy of Youtube.com/SchmoesKnow

Now the only panels I got to really go to personally was the Screen Junkies Honest Trailer/Movie Fights Panel. One of my main highlights of the entire Con. I had so much fun with it. They should be posting it up on their YouTube channel later this week. I also attended the panel Movies That Never Got Made which focused mostly on Jon Schnepp’s documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? A film that I have been very excited for and I will be reviewing it as soon as I sit down and watch the entire Blu Ray. Including the 10 hours of bonus footage.

I spent my time for the most part wondering back and forth from outside Hall H to the Omni Hotel Lobby where there was free Wi-Fi. Between these points I came across all sorts of content. The Heroes Reborn Trailer, which looks interesting enough. I’ve never seen the original series, every time I tried to watch I never got through more than 3 episodes for one reason or another. But I definitely will give this a look. Blindspot the new NBC show starring Jaime Alexander looks to have a few episodes then be cancelled. I don’t see how it can really last long. It looks dull to me honestly. And for no reason in particular. It just feels like this is one of those shows that will sizzle out and be cancelled within the first episode, which is sad because I really like Jaime Alexander.

So Hall H began With The Hunger Games: MockingJay Part II. The panel was moderated by none other than Conan O’Brien. He did a great job being able to mix his comedy in with the cast and keep the panel rolling soothingly. These guys have such great chemistry together. On and off the screen. It is so fun to see them interact with each, and you truly feel the emotion and love they have for these films. They played a new trailer for the film which has yet to be released online. But from the sounds of it was action packed and showcased the true feel of the movie. Jennifer Laurence is an amazing person. She has the complete blend of intelligence, beauty, and class, all while being a complete ditz. She’s like a starburst, a complete contradiction. You hear her and think she’s ditzy until she turns the charm on and says something that completely blows your mind. She truly is the whole package, and true genuine person. You can catch the entire panel right here.

Fox truly brought the house down when they took the stage. They opened up with The Maze Runner followed by Victor Frankenstein. Where they each brought out the cast and spoke about the films, showing the new trailers for each. But honestly these were just the preshow for Fox. They then gave you Fantastic Four as an appetizer. But they finally brought the house down when Ryan Reynolds, not is costume oddly, came out on stage and introduced the raunchy, dirty, R rated panel for Dead pool! Which you can see here. As you see it was fun, it was amped up. The crowd was crazy hyped for it. I got a chance to see the footage they showed, and let me tell you, it was awesome. The bulk of it was the live action version of the leaked test footage from a year ago, with a lot of action set to DMX’s X Gone Give It to Ya. You’d think this was the main event, but they didn’t stop there.

Out came the cast of X-Men Apocalypse. Another amazing panel with amazing footage. After the footage Hugh Jackman all but confirmed that The Wolverine 3 would in fact be Old Man Logan. Which we can all agree, will be epic! Now the footage was very basic due to the fact they are so early in the production process. But we see Jean, and Jubilee, and quick sight of Cyclops. You get glimpses of Apocalypse all throughout it. But then, to close out the footage, Magneto stares at the screen and asks “Who the F*** are you?” and boom, we get it, Apocalypse in full garb. And he looks amazing. And if that wasn’t enough, they walk Channing Tatum, Gambit himself, to be included in their epic X-Men Selfie. This panel was so fun, and so exciting, and I cannot wait for the film! These panels were just so much fun, and the excitement they all show about the films makes me even more excited for them.

Next up we had the much anticipated Star Wars Panel. So much excitement, would we get the official announcement of Collin Trevorrow directing Episode IX? What about the Anthology films? Well we didn’t really get much of that all. Instead, we got Harrison Freaking Ford! That’s right ladies and gentlemen; Han Solo himself was in the house.  This was so awesome. Seeing the big 3 on stage at Comic Con is amazing. Plus added in the entire cast of Episode VII, get out bro! It was amazing! And I think bringing Harrison Ford out was there way to please the fans for not bringing any new footage or announcements. We got some behind the scenes footage, but nothing really new. But JJ brought out some of their practical effects creatures, and it was just incredible all the insight they brought with them. You can really tell this cast is passionate, and fans of the material. After the panel they took the fans outside and had an amazing Star Wars concert where every member of the audience was given a Light Saber!

WB/DC is going to be my vote for the Winner of Comic Con though. Starting with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and then going into PAN They hit the ground running. But the meat of the morning was Suicide Squad and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Suicide Squad kicked it off with some incredible footage that can now be seen right here. Next up they brought out the entire cast of BvS for their Panel, and these guys are so into it makes me ready for it! For quite a while now Captain America: Civil War has been my most anticipated for 2016, this panel, and this trailer, are giving Marvel and Civil War a run for their money.

All and all Comic Con was freaking amazing guys. If I had to Jeebus Score it, I’d go 5.5 with the full bonus of .5 for EVERYTHING, giving San Diego Comic Con the first ever perfect 6.0 Jeebus Score! An amazing time, and I look forward to going to it again next year! Make sure to check out all the Comic Con coverage at Cinelinx.Com! And all always Jackass Nation, Keep on Nerding!

San Diego Comic Con Day 3

Ok, so major news Saturday out of Comic Con, I know I am two days late, but there was a lot to talk about. So without any further au due, let’s get into it.

DC opened up with nothing but Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. No rumored Shazaam info, no rumored schedule. Just pictures, and footage. The footage which is unable to be seen by anyone not at Comic Con, which is crap. But, I have a slight description. The footage allegedly opened up in Gotham, Supes is hovering in the air then on comes the Bat Signal. He glances down and it reveals Batman on a rooftop. Batman’s eyes glow blue revealing him to be in his tech armor, very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s the Dark Knight Returns. Supes eyes glow red and he flares up toward Batman and the footage ends. The film seems to take a lot of its cues from the graphic novel, which I think is a great idea. If you’ve read the novel The Dark Knight Returns or seen the animated film, you know how detailed and incredible that story is. From the announcement of the film with the quote from the graphic novel to this test footage, it’s been pretty clear what direction they are taking it. I for one am still not 100% onboard. I think Bat-Fleck is the best thing going for the film but it has its issues. The casting of Mamoa as Aquaman, great casting, but putting Aquaman in the film, unnecessary. Same with Victor Stone, AKA Cyborg. And for Wonder Woman, the casting of Gal Godat is horrendous. They have finally released an image of her, and yes, the costume looks phenomenal. Yes she is very hot. But I don’t by her as Wonder Woman. Yes she was in the Iraqi army, she just too skinny. Not to mention, she is not an actress. She is a model who acts. If you didn’t care to have a trained actress play the most iconic female superhero ever, why would not just get Gina Carano? That’s just my 2 cents. Facebook-20140728-012253 Facebook-20140728-012328 Facebook-20140728-012357 Facebook-20140728-012414

Next up we had Legendary. Legendary had two pretty big major announcements. Godzilla 2 will include more of our favorite monsters. Mothra, Rodan, and King Gidorah, AKA Monster Zero. I was in the camp of the not so thrilled with Godzilla. I felt they needed much more Godzilla in the Godzilla film. However, with the introduction of these three iconic monsters, I am back on board. Will they let me down? That remains to be seen. I will say though, historically, sequels give you more of what you want. Batman Returns more Batman, Terminator 2, more Terminator. So I assume that Godzilla 2, will give us more Godzilla. On a possibly related note. Legendary and Universal will be teaming up to give us what a teaser called Skull Island. Skull Island the legendary home of the iconic King Kong. Rumor has it that the film will give us an origin of Kong. How he back King of this island and the islanders began to worship him. As well that it will be taking place within the Godzilla universe. If this is true, it makes me even more excited that we could get King Kong Vs Godzilla later on down the road!

Warner Brothers also released a trailer and new poster for Mad Max: Fury Road. The film looks fun, Tom Hardy plays the title character and is definitely a good successor for Mel Gibson. It looks action packed, it looks like them going back and taking their time really paid off for them. I cannot wait to see this film!

WB also aired the Pilots of both Flash and Gotham. While most people have already seen the Flash pilot, The Gotham pilot was aired for the first time. Reception seems to be pretty positive. It is said to be much grounded in reality. Not being a Superhero television show, but a cop drama. Even characters like Robin Taylor’s Oswald Cobblepot, and Corey Michael Smith’s Edward Nygma are believable. The Arrow panel seemed to be the most fun with them showing an extended trailer for season 3. Looks like we will be upping the action and drama. Ra’s Al Ghul will apparently be making his long anticipated debut. They spoke of the crossovers that will take place between Flash and Arrow. Most notably Felicity’s presence on both show. The Constantine panel answered a few questions and also showed an extended trailer. Needless to say, DC is on top of their TV game.

I don’t know if there was a full panel, or not but at some point this weekend this image of The Thing pre CGI from the Fantastic FOur reboot surfaced. Looks about the same as The Hulk from the Avenges. First bit of good news in a while coming out of this film. Facebook-20140728-012312

Finally, the bread and butter, the winner of Comic Con, in my opinion. All though they did not announce any of their untitled projects, Marvel did give us a lot. Evangeline Lily will be playing Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. Will probably be Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang’s love interest. Corey Stoll will be replacing Patrick Wilson as Darren Cross AKA Yellowjacket. Plot seems to revolve around Pym and Cross being business partners. The Ying and Yang of the business. Cross seems to be the one who wants to take the company in an evil direction while Pym is out to help mankind. Seems as Pym will recruit Lang to take his place and become the Ant Man.

Marvel brought out the Avengers and they answered some fun questions. Hemsworth was asked where he would like them to take Thor, to which he replied “I’d like to see them turn him into a woman”. Ruffalo joked about how he used to be nobody now he walks down the street and has a name, everyone yells “Hi Hulk”. All he pieces of the puzzle have been released and they create an amazing picture of the Avengers all being over powered by Ultron Drones. Most notably The Vision appears in the background in the top left corner. Finally they showed some footage. Do you remember the photo released a about a week ago with the Avengers all hanging out in plain clothes in Avengers Tower? Well the apparently the footage opened up there will all the Avengers joking and hanging around trying to pick up Mjolnir. Stark can’t do it, not even with an Iron Man glove or help from Rhodey, Banner can’t move, then Cap steps up to the plate and it budges just a little and they all go nuts. That is until a ruffling is heard and out walks a damaged Iron Man suit, that begins to speak of the extinction of the human race, and that he is the Ultron. A montage of action footage rolls, including Black Widow in her new outfit, Banner in a strait jacket, tanks being thrown. The footage ends with the Avengers laid out in a desolate desert. The Hulk raging out, then in comes Iron Man, in the Hulk Buster gear. The two go at it and the footage ends. I don’t know about you, but just the mere thought of how this looked gives me Goosebumps. I am so excited for next year!

To end Marvels panel they brought out James Gunn who revealed that Guardians 2 is coming. Says a lot for the studio to green light the film before the first has even been released. Guardians of the Galaxy is my most anticipated film of the year and I cannot wait to see it this Thursday night!!!!

San Diego Comic Con Day 2

Most of today’s news from Comic Con comes in the form of television. A lot of the shows like Game of Thrones and Walking Dead I don’t watch so I can’t really speculate. But 3 of the big shows they did speak of are pretty interesting news. We got some more character concept art from Avengers, which all seems to add together to make one huge photo. I will wait to talk and post that until the final pieces are revealed tomorrow. In the meantime, let’s get into the news.

The Arrow panel seemed a lot of fun. Olicity fans got pretty excited. I am not a fan of Olicity. While I will concede that Emily Rickards who plays Felicity is smoking ass hot, she is now where as fine as Caity Lotz who plays the Black Canary, Sara Lance. Lotz was not at the panel, which worried me until I saw the Canary in the trailer for season 3. Trailer is pretty epic. It looks like we will get some heat in the Arrow camp. As Diggle and Ollie seem to be having out. Felicity looks like she will be taking some bumps. And as for Roy, well we already showed the Arsenal costume. Thea’s story arc looks like it will be very exciting two. Thea, played by Willa Holland and he father Malcom Merlin, played by John Barrowman, seemed to be having the most fun on the panel. They said the Thea we know is no more, and I for one can’t wait to see, Speedy.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. announced some new cast members. Lucy Lawless will be playing Isabelle Hartley. A Veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that Coulson recruits to help rebuild the organization. Lance Hunter will be played by Nick Blood. Hunter is a mercenary who in the comics is the leader of S.T.R.I.K.E., the British counterpart to S.H.I.E.L.D.. Reed Diamond joins the cast Daniel Whitehall, a.k.a. Kraken. Whitehall seems to be the overarching bad guy for the season as he will be a leader in the Hydra organization. Hail Hydra. In the comics, Kraken possess a helmet that gives its wearer a magical and indestructible armor. Our final character will be Barbara Morse, the Mockingbird. No word yet on who will play her, but the character is a superbly trained athlete, gymnast, unarmed combatant, and spy. She is enhanced to the peak of human potential physically, and pretty much a pretty bad A chick. I admit the first season of S.H.I.E.L.D. was very slow, and basically, not good. But I stuck with it, and sooner, well more like later, it got a lot better. Most notably after Lady Sif showed. I am excited for the next season.

We didn’t get much info on Agent Carter. What we did learn is that rather unknown Louis D’Esposito will direct the pilot, Russo brothers who brought us the Winter Soldier will direct episodes 2 and 3. And The First Avenger Director will helm episode 4. When asked about Dominic Coper’s Howard Stark, Haley Atwell replied “That would be fantastic if that could happen” So I’m going to take that as a no, or he will show up very little, like Nick Fury does for S.H.I.E.L.D.. I can’t really say I am super excited for this one. I’ll watch it, but it’s not really on my countdown to list. It’s going to take place in the past, and outside the timeline, it just doesn’t seem like there is much they can do.

That’s pretty much all I got out of today. Tomorrow is the big day in Hall H. DC/WB, Fox, Sony, and Marvel. Can’t wait!

 

San Diego Comic Con day 1 top news stories

So today was a little tid bit of information out today, let’s just dive into and start with the DreamWorks panel. They released their upcoming schedule and it looks like we got some decent films coming our way. They first showed a short teaser for a film called Home. The plot seems to center around an alien race who attempt to take refuge on earth while hiding from their mortal enemy and make earth their new home. While attempting to relocate the humans, a young girl escapes and is accompanied on the run by a banished member of the alien race named Oh. Next up is a film called B.O.O. the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. B.O.O. seems to center around a government organization that employs ghost to protect humans from hauntings. Two of the newest agents uncover a plot to destroy the organization and it is up to them to save the day. Finally, we get a little bit on the movie of the Penguins of Madagascar! Out came Comic Con virgins John Malkovich, and Benedict Cumberbatch. Apparently the Hall couldn’t help but ask Cumberbatch about the Dr. Strange rumors. To which he only replied maybe he’d be playing Nurse Normal. Funny guy. The three films seem fun. Penguins more than the other two.

Paramount took the stage next and dropped some major bombs. To start they announced a 2nd SpongeBob movie. Followed by the Ninja Turtles panel where they played some footage and talked about the film. Nothing new here. I haven’t seen many of the newer trailers and I’m pretty excited for the film. Next up they debuted the Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer. Which I will try to post at the bottom, don’t really know how. But it wasn’t anything special. Liked the first one, and you can’t judge a book by its cover, or a film by its trailer. There are a few funny spots, the nerd song, and the final clip.

Next up, well, I’ll get to what’s next. First they finished the Paramount panel with Interstellar. Matthew McConaughey and Chris Nolan showed up to discuss the film! I am very excited for this one, sadly I don’t think we get to see the trailer just yet, but from what I’ve heard it’ll be great. But now, Finally, The Rock has showed up at Comic Con! The Rock came out to apparently a tremendous ovation. He invited everyone to s special screening of Hercules, to which he was greeted by chants of Rocky, no, wait, it was another word, SHAZAAM! I think this entire Shazaam talk is misdirection. I think he’s going to be Black Adam. You don’t get the Rock, the most electrifying man in sports or entertainment and only let him on the screen half the time.IMG_1297 Aliens-Search-For-a-Home-in-First-Trailer-For-DreamWorks-Animation-Comedy IMG_1290 IMG_1292 IMG_1296 www.indiewire.com_-600x421

San Diego Comic Con Preview Day News

Ok so I am going to do my best to keep up with a little bit of San Diego Comic Con info. Sadly I am un able to attend this year. So obviously this is not going to be the first you’ve heard of this news, or if it is, thanks for coming here to get it. But I will do my best to give you a little insight on what I believe it all means, and where my opinions on what we got.

So today we got actually got a little bit of news today, and we kick it off with what I think is the most exciting, The Ant-Man concept art poster. Now keep this in mind, this is concept art. This isn’t a true poster. But from the look of it, I like it. You get Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd in the back, plus a pretty, Bad A looking Ant Man front and center. Ant Man is still a pretty big risk for Marvel. Much like Guardians of the Galaxy is going to be. Luckily it looks and sounds like Marvel has knocked it out of the park with Guardians. The hope is that even with all the drama behind Ant Man, if this concept art is any in indication of the tone the film will take, I for one, am very excited.

Next up, is CW’s Arrow. We have finally gotten our first look at Colton Haynes’ Arsenal costume. If you do not watch Arrow, you need! Arrow is, in my opinion, one of if not the best show on Television today. Haynes plays Roy Harper, who is training to be the hero we know as Arsenal and from the look of this, we are just about there. A lot of people have their opinions about the character, I for one actually enjoy his story arcs. And this costume, is awesome! It plays off of Stephen Amell’s Arrow costume very well.

We got some Spider-Man news. After what was a mixed reception to Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the internet blew up in speculation about what was next for the franchise. A lot of people feared their planned spin offs and sequels would be cancelled. Well luckily (in my humble opinion) that will not be happing. Sony announced that while yes The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018, in its place, we will be getting the Sinister Six film on November 11 2016. This film has me really excited. While I enjoyed TASM2, I understand it had it problems. Sony does not have a very large gallery of hero’s to create a shared universe like Fox has with the X-Men and Fantastic 4, and WB has with all the DC property’s, and Marvel has done so perfectly with the Avengers. What Sony does have is Spider-Man’s rogue gallery. Which next to Batman is one of the largest and most interesting group of villains. The thought a villain centric film excites me. A movie where you are rooting against your main characters. I am excited to watch this develop.

In some other quick tad bits. Mad Max: Fury Road has released a new poster and image. This looks like it’s going to be a legit film. And we finally have gotten a logo for Warcraft starring Collin Ferrell. Pretty simple, and basic, hopefully this one does well. Along with Michael Fassbender’s Assassins Creed film this will do a lot for the future of video game movies (ZELDA!) Marvel has released two more conceptual art photos of Iron Man and the Scarlett which kicking some major robot butt. The marketing campaign for Age of Ultron looks to already be running and I love how it’s going. Finally the first image/logo for the Hitman film, another video game property, Agent 47 has been released. Exciting! Not much to tell from these photos other then they are all really cool!

Finally, last week Marvel announced 5 dates for upcoming Marvel films. None of which have been named. Today, a 6th was announced. May 4th 2018. So all together that gives us Avengers 2 on 5/1/15, Ant Man on 7/17/15, Cap 3 on 5/6/16, and untitled mystery films on 7/8/16, 5/5/17, 7/28/17, 11/3/17, 5/4/18, 7/6/18, 11/2/18 and 5/3/19. That’s a lot. Me personally, I think you got to assume the 1st is Dr Strange. Followed Guardians 2, followed Black Panther in 2017. Then you the new one which I will get into, Ant Man 2, and Thor 3 in 18, and finally Avengers 3 in 19. But what excites me about this separate date they announced, is Robert Downey Jr’s comments today. Downey said, “It’s down to Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and Ike [Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment] and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey said. “When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement.” He continued with “It’s that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?” he says—then adds a caveat. “Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out.” So that leaves me to believe that May 4th 2019 will be Iron Man 4. I am in the camp that was not a fan of Iron Man 3, but I still trust in Marvel. Hopefully these comments mean a deal will be worked out, and Iron Man 4 is coming! Hopefully with Jon Favreau back in the directors.
