Fury Road press conference

Because The Road Warrior is one of the best and most pure action films ever made, we’ve been clocking the development of Fury Road for years. Our first coverage was back in 2008, and the announcement that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy could be in the film dates back to ’09. News that director George Miller has written not one, but two sequels goes back to 2011.

So the Comic Con appearance of Mad Max: Fury Road was a great pleasure. The fact that the film was among the most striking things we saw at SDCC 2014 was even more impressive; after all those years in development, who knew what to expect? We’ve shown you the trailer, and now you can watch the whole Fury Road press conference, in which Miller and producer Doug Mitchell discuss the film’s development, story, and production. We’ve also gone back to a TV appearance Miller did several years ago, talking about the film.

Ant-Man footage

All those production delays meant Ant-Man didn’t go in front of cameras early enough for Marvel to show us Paul Rudd or Michael Douglas in action at Comic-Con. But it wouldn’t be like Marvel to show up to Hall H completely empty-handed, and so they “filmed a little something to show you guys,” as Kevin Feige put it.

We were treated to a brief bit of Ant-Man footage, really an FX test with voiceover. Hit the jump to get our Ant-Man footage recap and reaction.
