(PCM)Yesteday was a huge day for film annoucements at San Diego Comic Con 2014, with WB, Legendary, and Marvel all revealing big news to the thousands of fans in attendance.
We not only got to see the first footage of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but as a surprise the cast of the highly anticipated film made a brief appearance which caused the massive Hall H crowd to go wild as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot graced the stage.
I also have to note that it was was truly amazing to see the newly expanded Hall H screens which assisted in making the film clips and footage shown even more impressive than ever…it’s all about the ambience right?
We also caught some amazing footage from Mad Max: Fury Road, which I have to say looks epic, gritty and intense, as well as an in-depth look at The Hobbit : Battle of Five Armies. The Hobbit panel was moderated by none other than Stephen Colbert, who was an extra surprise to an already exciting panel. Director Peter Jackson also revealed that this film is definitely his favorite of the three Hobbit films.
Mad Max director George Miller was incredibly excited for his first Comic Con appearance. He even had moderator Chris Hardwick snap a cell phone shot of him with the enormous crowd behind him…it was adorable.
In other film news, Godzilla 2 was announced as well as new monsters including Mothra were said to be included. We were also incredibly excited for the news about the possibility for Fight Club 2 from David Fincher and Chuck Palahniuk, who also revealed a new ten part book series is coming out this April.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For also had their time in the Hall H spotlight revealing new footage and the strong possibility of a third film. It was interesting to note that director Robert Rodriguez revealed that he composed eighty percent of the films score on his smart phone before putting the soundtrack together.
Marvel’s panel later in the evening was less than epic with none of their phase three line up being revealed. Also no confirmations for Doctor Strange as predicted and only a snippet of Antman which appears to be falling apart considering two more actors dropped out of the project. The footage from Avengers 2: Age of Ultron was amazing and news about Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was also met with great excitement from the crowd.
