Comic-Con 2013 proved one thing beyond a shadow a doubt. To make an impression in Hall H, you have to do something unexpected. Sony did just that with their presentation of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, bringing Spider-Man himself to the stage before introducing the actor portraying him, Andrew Garfield.
You can read about the footage here, and rest of the panel here, but below check out a video of the whole panel which includes 10 minutes of Garfield, as Spider-Man, just being hilarious. Read More »

Comic Con is too large of an event for celebrities to actually walk the show floor, but that doesn’t stop some of them from trying. Justin Timberlake once walked Comic-Con dressed as a ‘Sesame Street’ character years ago. Many other actors have famously thrown on a Stormtrooper helmet and walked the show floor with just a half-assed cosplay presentation — so if you ever see someone who just threw on a mask and it looks like they didn’t try hard enough, ask yourself which actor might possibly be hiding in plain sight. Michael Cera just threw on a fierce-looking Gorilla mask one year.
This year, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, Doctor Who‘s eleventh doctor Matt Smith and The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman are among the actors we know who donned a disguise and walked the show floor this year. After the jump you can see how they did it.

This past Saturday in Comic-Con’s Hall H will go down in history as one of the best days ever at the Con. We found out about a Superman/Batman movie, saw footage from Godzilla, a teaser for Warcraft, footage from every single upcoming Marvel movie and so much more.
One of the major highlights was director Bryan Singer parading out the entire cast of his 2014 sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past. We’re talking about a murderer’s row of Oscar winners, legends, and A-listers including Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Ellen Page, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence and Peter Dinklage. We’ve already written about what happened and talked about the footage but now, thanks to the magic of the internet, you can watch the whole thing yourself. Read More »
One of the loudest crowd sounds I’ve ever heard in my life was the deafening roar that erupted in Hall H at Comic Con this year when Zack Snyder rolled a short video in which Superman’s ‘S’ logo appeared, then was shadowed by Batman’s own symbol.
The video was the culmination of Snyder’s announcement that the sequel to Man of Steel will feature Batman. Now you can watch most of Snyder’s short talk, and see that video for yourself. Read More »
Why does Walter White have a beard, what’s he doing with that thing in the trunk and what happens after the toilet? These are just some of the questions that will be answered starting August 11 when the final 8 episodes of Breaking Bad begin to air. The majority of the show’s cast, along with creator Vince Gilligan, took the Hall H stage on the last day of San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the show’s legacy. They surprised the audience by showing the pre-title cold open from the season premiere.
If you’d like to know what happens, we have a detailed description below, but fair warning it includes MAJOR SPOILERS. Check back soon for a non-spoiler recap of the panel. Read More »
The opening text crawl for Edge of Tomorrow, the new film with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, was “Live/Die/Repeat.” That’s the film in a nutshell — Cruise plays an Army PR guy who is thrown into combat and immediately killed. But that’s not his end; for reasons unknown to him, Cruise lives his last day over and over again. In the process he learns how to be a deadly soldier in humanity’s fight against aliens, and he also tracks down another mysterious warrior, the woman other soldiers call the Full Metal Bitch, played by Emily Blunt.
At Comic Con today, Tom Cruise was joined on stage by Blunt, director Doug Liman, and writer Christopher McQuarrie. (And they were joined by Bill Paxton, who plays a supporting role.) Cruise charmed the hell out of the crowd, through his interactions with moderator Chris Hardwick and praise for Doug Liman and Emily Blunt. In turn, his co-conspirators praised his intense work ethic, which drove Cruise to run and fight through scenes wearing a suit of armor that weighs over 100lbs.
A brief bit of footage was shown, and we’ll run down that and some of the panel info below. Read More »
