Sam Raimi dropped a newsbomb as a casual aside at Comic-Con today.
During the a panel for The Last of Us, a video game adaptation he's producing, Raimi mentioned that he's writing an Evil Dead TV show.
Everybody's wondering what Warner Bros. will announce about the future of DC heroes onscreen in Hall H, so what better time for Jon Schnepp to reveal the trailer for his documentary exploring Superman Lives.
You know Superman Lives, the folly of a Supes project from the mid-1990s, the one that Tim Burton was directing with Nicolas Cage starring?
Ah, Sunday at San Diego Comic-Con.
Almost as quickly as they rolled in, thousands of fans hastily kick rocks out of the city. While the final day of the Con is still a bustling bazaar of pure enthusiasm, uncut marketing, and brotherhood between genre fans of every type, Sunday also marks a definite downturn from the wild highs and excesses of the previous several days.
Basically, Sunday is like that period after a massive, delicious holiday meal. Everyone's loosening their belts, letting out a long breath, and bathing in the afterglow of an overwhelming experience.
Still, there's much to be seen as Comic-Con comes to a close, and IAR isn't sleeping on the job. We'll be reporting from San Diego, continuing to bring you updates from the year's biggest fan-palooza. Try as we might, though, we won't be able to cover everything Roguish from the convention. So in accordance with tradition and in the name of convenience, we have another Comic-Con scheduling cheat sheet filled with stuff that we think you'll enjoy.
It's all about TV on Sunday. You might be interested in Hall H panels for Guillermo del Toro's new FX horror series The Strain and the beloved Sons of Anarchy as it rolls into its final season. Also of note is a panel about The Lego Movie from a toyetic perspective and the annual celebration of Jack Kirby. Oh, and the Batkid documentary also gets a showcase.
Director Scott Derrickson may have found an unexpected actor to play the Sorcerer Supreme of Marvel's Cinematic Universe.
Three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly in contention to star as Doctor Strange.
Director Rob Letterman (Shark Tale) and Jack Black (Bernie) appeared at Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego on Thursday to discuss their new film Goosebumps, which is based on the popular series of books by R.L. Stine.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had a chance to speak exclusively with director Rob Letterman about Goosebumps. The director discussed his new movie, the non traditional adaptation, working with Jack Black, creatures, and possible sequels.
Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin), and Julie Newmar (Catwoman) appeared in Hall H at Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego on Thursday to discuss the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of their classic 1966 series Batman, which will be available on November 11th.
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had a chance to attend their press conference before the panel and speak with Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar about Batman '66. The three television legends discussed the series, its incredible guest stars, the chemistry between Batman and Catwoman, and Ward's friendship with Bruce Lee.
Following its Hall H presentation yesterday, Paramount Pictures released an extended red band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2.
Marvel Studios hasn't even had its big Hall H presentation yet, but the comic book movie champ continues to expertly build anticipation for Avengers: Age of Ultron anyways.
Four new pieces of promotional artwork from the sequel show off Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and new addition Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) battling hordes of Ultron drones.
That's not all, either. One of these posters being handed out at the Marvel Booth on the exhibition floor also includes our first sense of Vision (Paul Bettany).
Hall H, the largest venue at the San Diego Convention Center, is sometimes called "Hall Hell" on account of long lines, squeaky chairs, and stale hot dogs.
When DreamWorks Animation took over the cavernous space for its presentation on Thursday, however, Hall H was downright heavenly for fans of animated comedy.
One of the biggest names in feature animation showcased Home, a rollicking scifi original, and Penguins of Madagascar, a globe-trotting spinoff.
