So...Saturday. Godzilla, the Marvel panel...a full day of great programming in Hall H. So. What to do? Well, I got up at 1:30 am...showered, and out the door by 2:15. Shuttles run all night...so here comes the bus. Doors open...and Party Rock is BLARING. Huge, Six Million Dollar Man Sasquatch looking dude says..."I hope you brought the bath salts". So I grab a seat and hang on. Bus driver proceeds to drive off course delivering folks to hotels that aren't on his route. He makes wicked u-turns in the middle of empty streets, and makes the bus DANCE by stomping the breaks at the lights. That was the start of my adventure. Got down to dreaded Hall H and knew I would get in. SO much great programming. Saw Godzilla footage(SQUEEEEEE), Chris Hardwicke literally getting nerdgasm from Tom Cruise, the announcement of Man of Steel 2:Now with more BATMAN. And the Marvel Panel, which had a great moment with Loki, some nice Cap'n stuff...and footage from Guardians of the Galaxy. Folks, this is gonna be EPIC. EPIC!!!!!!!!. Cap it off with the always terrific Kevin Smith and my boy SmytheKing getting my Deadpool Taco Truck exclusive. Just a fine way to end a all around perfect Con. Floor time for pictures, last minute deal gathering and Sons of Anarchy for the perfect epilogue to seal the deal tomorrow.

Comic-Con: Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Panel Recap with James Gunn, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and More | Collider
They then rolled some footage from the film, which they prefaced by saying they’ve only been filming for 10-13 days. The result, though, was a fantastic reel of much more footage than expected. The entire thing was 100% James Gunn, as there’s a strong undercurrent of irreverent humor throughout; the footage was backed by “Hooked on a Feeling,” if you need further proof. Pratt’s Star-Lord is a mix between a Wild West badass and a juvenile delinquent. We saw the entire Guardians gang—including Groot and Rocket Raccoon—being rounded up in a space prison, as they were “checked in” by John C. Reilly’s character. Again, there was a great sense of humor to the proceedings, as Groot stepped in and Reilly said, “What is that thing?” Pratt’s Star-Lord was giving Reilly and his cohorts the middle finger while being scanned.
We saw a few flashes of action, but the big takeaway is that Guardians is wholly a James Gunn film. It’s weird, there are a lot of great creatures (the makeup on Bautista and Saldana was impressive), and it’s really funny. The footage ended with Reilly’s character finishing the check-in and then quipping to his colleague, “What a bunch of a-holes.”
Given that we didn’t even know there was going to be a Guardians panel, this was a solid surprise. The cast is unexpected and charismatic, and I really love what we saw of Pratt’s Star-Lord. Moreover, it’s reassuring to see that Gunn hasn’t toned down his sensibilities for the Marvel film. Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1, 2014.

Comic-Con: DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Panel Recap | Collider
The fairly short reel of footage focused mostly on the humans, as we were treated to shots of the post-apocalyptic society while Gary Oldman’s character made a sort of rallying speech. The footage gave me a strong The Road vibe, as the human society has devolved into chaos. There’s a great deal of intensity brewing, and we saw some fleeting images of Oldman firing a gun, structures overrun with grass, and Clarke’s character hiding behind a wall. Oldman mentioned in his speech that the humans spent four years fighting the virus and another four years fighting each other, and it has clearly taken its toll on the society.
The final shot of the footage opened close on the eyes of a fully-rendered Caesar sporting a bit of white war paint on his face and chest, and it slowly pulled back to reveal Caesar flanked by a number of other apes, with Caesar holding a staff in his hand and signaling for the other apes to hold. His face is intense, and as he drops his hand to signal a “charge,” the footage cut to black and revealed the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes logo.
The panel wasn’t opened up to audience Q&A, but the footage that Reeves showed was really strong. Whereas Rise of the Planet of the Apes had a fairly light color palette, Dawn is much darker. Reeves seems to have done a great deal of world building for the Dawn universe, and I love the grounded portrayal of the new civilizations. I’m also interested to see “a story of two communities,” as it definitely sounds like we’ll be delving deeper into the psyche of Caesar and how his ape civilization progresses towards the inevitable outcome..
THIS looked SOOOOOOOOO good!

man-of-steel-poster-henry cavillSilverman stated, “Zack Snyder is an incredibly talented filmmaker, but beyond that, he’s a fan first and he utterly gets this genre. We could not think of anyone better suited to the task of bringing these iconic Super Heroes to the screen in his own way.” Kroll added, “We are thrilled to be back in business with Zack and his team on this next movie. The success of ‘Man of Steel’ is a wonderful testament to the love and support that both fans and new audiences, worldwide, have for these characters. We are very excited to see what Zack has in store for all of us.”
Diane Nelson, President, DC Entertainment, noted,“Superman and Batman together on the big screen is a dream come true for DC fans everywhere. All of us at DCEntertainment could not be more excited for Zack’s continuing vision for the DC Universe.”
Zack Snyder, who made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con today, breaking the news to audiences there, later said, “I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter. Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world.”
The new film brings back Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder as producers. This time, Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are serving as executive producers, along with Benjamin Melniker and Michael E. Uslan.
Thomas offered, “Whilst our ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy is complete, we have every confidence that Zack’s fresh interpretation will take the character in a new and exciting direction. His vision for Superman opened the door to a whole new universe and we can’t wait to see what Zack does with these characters.”
The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, and Batman characters created by Bob Kane, published by DC Entertainment.
