The full film and TV line-up for this year’s San Diego Comic Con has been released and more than ever before the balance has shifted from movies to television with many major shows and upcoming new series all getting panels or major screenings. Films on the other hand are few and far between, in fact Friday – once a film haven in Hall H – has given way completely to TV panels.
After a lot of back and forth Warner Bros. has given in and released the official first look at the Suicide Squad film as well as Jared Leto as the Joker.

The last day of WonderCon 2013 was bittersweet. It was a huge weekend for the show however fatigue was starting to show. But that did not stop fans from showing up, especially with the likes of Joss Whedon, Clark Gregg and Nathan Fillion due to be on site. Per the norm, Sunday was a day to wind down and hunt for deals on the exhibit hall floor and attend the last few panels before calling it “a Con.”

Saturdays are always going to be the biggest day of any weekend comic convention. Most people are off work, they still have Sunday to recuperate, and Saturday morning cartoons can be TiVo-ed to watch later. This was the case in Anaheim for WonderCon 2013; Saturday passes officially sold out March 26th. The week of Con, Warner Bros. confirmed that Guillermo Del Toro would be on hand at 11:30am on Saturday morning to premiere the newest trailer for this Summer’s much anticipated, PACIFIC RIM; Bruce Campbell, Fede Alvarez, and Sam Raimi put out a video mentioning they would all be in Anahiem for the weekend to promote the EVIL DEAD. These two panels alone meant people lining up early to get in for a BIG day. Cosplayers, Food Trucks, and Exhibitors were not going to be out done by Hollywood’s presence and brought their “A Game” to the show too. Continue reading
Long Beach Comic & Horror Con hosted their fourth annual show this past weekend. 10’s of thousands of attendees crowded the halls of the Long Beach Convention Center for the two day show. Cosplayers brought out their best costumes, convention center staff was well prepared to handle the Con attendees as well as the Gardening Expo people also in the building, and the California coastal weather created a picturesque weekend for a comic con. But this year’s limited programming and overall mood on the exhibit hall floor made for a less than normal con-experience. Long Beach Comic Con felt like it was missing some elements. Fans still seemed to enjoy hanging out with old friends and making new ones, but will they come back next year? Continue reading
Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2012 has come and gone and I have had a few days to recover from two sunny days in downtown Los Angeles and think about my adventure. There were good times and bad times at the con. For a show in its second year, it was big; but did you miss out on much by not going? Yes and no and here’s why.
Comikaze Day 1 was great. There were a few small problems as the day started but the show was still fun overall. Considering it was one of the hottest days on record in Los Angeles I can’t imagine a better place to be than an indoor, air conditioned comic expo. Stan Lee made several appearances, the exhibit hall floor was huge, cosplayers were out in force, panels were packed and people seemed to be having a generally good time.
Day three of Comic Con was so big I couldn’t fit it all in one post. The final part of the day and one of the most anticipated panels of the weekend, was the Marvel Studios presentation on Iron Man 3 and other franchises. Kevin Fiege did not disappoint the fans and brought the properly dubbed Phase 2 of Marvel Films to Hall H. There were updates on sequels to Captain America, Thor and Iron Man as well as two new titles confirmed in development, Guardians of the Galaxy and Antman.
