2014 Comic Con buzz

Just having gotten home from San Diego, I’m not sure which film excited me the most at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International. Mad Max: Fury Road was definitely the biggest surprise in terms of footage. Avengers: Age of Ultron and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice owned the majority of my conversations. While the Marvel footage was as expected, it was great. The Batman v Superman footage showed us a big screen Batman that we’ve never seen before and the Wonder Woman first look photo had everyone talked, in the hall and online. So which movies had the online community talking the most? General Sentiment, a social media analysis firm, has sent me their findings. See a list of the highest 2014 Comic Con buzz after the jump.

This year, Evangeline Lilly is the defacto queen of San Diego Comic-Con. Not only will the actress be on hand to promote the final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, she may be there for Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man, plus she’s finally fulfilling a lifelong dream. Lilly has always wanted to be a writer and she will debut her brand new book, The Squickerwonkers, at the Con with a panel and signing.

We had the pleasure of speaking to Lilly about all three of these things but in this, part one of our interview, we’ll focus on the film work and Comic-Con in general. We talked about her connections to the Convention, having been there for Lost, Hobbit and more. She gave us an update on the latest Hobbit and described the arc of Tauriel, her brand new character. The actress then skillfully evaded questions about Ant-Man, but also discussed Edgar Wright‘s departure. Finally, Lilly discussed what went wrong with Real Steel and the potential for a sequel.
