You may wonder why people sleep on concrete overnight at San Diego Comic-Con to see Marvel’s Hall H panel every year. You can find a small answer below. Besides the awesome news and huge stars Marvel parades across the stage, the studio is all about theatrics. The lights go down, a video comes up, and 6,500 people have no idea what’s about to play. In 2014, it was a retrospective sizzle reel to set up what’s about to happen. Marvel played a five-plus minute retrospective to pump up the fans and pass the torch to this weekend’s Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
We can’t duplicate the electricity of 6,500 people clapping and cheering in unison, or the fatigue and stench that results from the long wait to get in to Hall H. But you can watch the Marvel Comic Con sizzle reel below. Read More »

One of the highlights of San Diego Comic-Con for me was Star Wars Rebels. Not only did I finally get to see and revel in the fantastic pilot, I got the chance to discuss it with two of its executive producers, Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg. In a 15-year professional career, it was the first time I got to sit down and discuss Star Wars with people directly involved in Star Wars. It was pretty exciting.
Over the course of the next few days, we’re going to share the highlights of these one on one interviews. To start, I talked with both men about where, when and how Star Wars Rebels fits into the overall canon of Star Wars, what that means, how it effects their storytelling, and linking into the original trilogy. Read their quotes about the Star Wars Rebels plot connections below. Read More »
Last year we featured a cosplay music video from the 2013 edition of Comic Con. SneakyZebra has returned a year later with another great music video showcasing some of the best cosplayers he came across at San Diego Comic Con International 2014. This years video even features some notable attempts by Stan Winston School & LegacyFX, some of the stars of SyFy’s Heroes of Cosplay television series (Yaya Han, Chloe Dykstra, Riddle), Chris Hardwick of Nerdist and more. Watch the Comic Con 2014 Cosplay music video embedded after the jump.

Most people don’t know where Disney XD is on their television channel lineup, but that’s going to change soon. That’s not only where Star Wars Rebels will debut later this year, but also the home for a Guardians of the Galaxy animated show. There’s no word on exactly when it’ll air, but it’s a show that’s been in the works for a while. The characters have been appearing on other Marvel Animation shows for some time in preparation.
With the announcement, about one minute of footage was screened at Comic Con, and we have a description of the debut. Read more about the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series below and watch the full Marvel Animation Panel. Read More »
Saturday afternoon at the end of Legendary Pictures’ Hall H presentation at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International, Studio head Thomas Tull left the crowd with one last surprise — an announcement teaser for a King Kong prequel Skull Island. Instead of surprise and excitement, the crowd was left confused. That was definitely not the reaction that Legendary had intended. Why did the packed Hall H crowd have that reaction? I have a theory about the Skull Island confusion which you can read, after the jump.

It’s easy to get jaded about Comic-Con. The food is terrible, the lines are long, and the panels can be hit-or-miss. But every year, there are a few moments that make you drop your cynicism and remember what makes it magical.
One of this year’s unexpected highlights came during the Orphan Black Comic-Con panel, when a fan stepped up to share a very personal story about how the show had helped ease her coming-out to her family. The anecdote literally moved Tatiana Maslany to tears. Watch the touching moment after the jump.
