Well. Another day has gone by for the audiences and celebrities and San Diego Comic Con and in a slew of excitement some big news has been dropped. Not only have a whole heap of our favourite people populated the large exhibition centre in the good of USA but people have been treated with exclusive clips, wonderful art and panels about the latest movies that are coming out. While we are all sat here, sitting on our hands to stop clawing at the internet and buying plane tickets just to stand outside those hallowed doors and soak in the awesome.
That’s enough jealousy for this round up, here is a look at all the stuff that happened yesterday.
But it was the Age of Ultron panel that captivated our excitement. Ok, yes, we have major concerns about the movie since Sean delightfully pointed out flaws. But finally seeing Thanos aka Josh Brolin himself as well as the completely poster you now see means that the sequel to the hottest superhero blockbuster is going to be great! The clip shown was one alluded to by many fanfiction and yes, we’re going to finally see the other heroes try and pick up Mjonir after a party. Though no action sequences were shown, it does give the film that similar and light-hearted vein meaning one thing, Whedon is no doubt going to crush us all.
Marvel also announced that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will come out July 2017.
Films that were also showcasing footage along with their stars include The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies which saw Smaug himself desolate the Lake Town. The gathering of hobbits, men, elves, a Gollum and a dragon delighted fans especially when Cumberbatch did such requests like “Button Lady” in his lizard tongue. Peter Jackson also headed into the crowds in fancy dress as is the norm with Comic Con now. The footage showed a lot of battles, fire and a more tense and exciting Hobbit film.
Finally, Tom Hardy as Mad Max was first seen as well in a reboot for the franchise that saw Mel Gibson rise to fame and it looks astonishingly epic. Legendary pictures also announce that there will be a King Kong 2, centring on Skull Island. And there will also be a Godzilla 2, with more monsters like Mothra!
What do you think about all this news?
