Celebrities Who Walked The San Diego Comic Con 2014 Floor Incognito

- 07-27-14Cool Stuff, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

lead_large

Celebrities don’t always walk the San Diego Comic Con convention floor (for obvious reasons), but when they do, they do so incognito. Trotting around the exhibit floor in disguise, passing unsuspicious fans, some of which even ask to take a photo and being none the wiser. Can you imagine taking some goofy thumbs-up photo with what you thought was a fan like you in cosplay, only to find out later you stood mere inches from greatness. Missing the chance to engage and inquire with a celebrity whose work you’ve loved and been inspired by? Blasted! Either way you’re certainly left with a story to tell.

For SDCC 2014, we reveal Comic Con’s biggest celebrities who dared to dance amongst fans cunningly disguised by a mask. (more…)

Get Your First Look At Ant-Man’s Helmet

- 07-26-14Comics, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

Screen Shot 2014-07-26 at 4.27.03 PM

While Marvel’s Ant-Man adaption has hit more than few bumps in the road to production – with director Edgar Wright having left the project per creative differences and the purging of several actors, including Patrick Wilson – the project moves forward. New director Peyton Reed will helm as stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas bring to life Marvel’s super powered man of various sizes/commander of Ants.

Should fans be worried? Eh, maybe. But Marvel has a pretty good track record and they’ve only been getting better. We fully aspect Marvel to make some announcements and clear the air tonight when they take center stage their San Diego Comic Con panel in Hall H. Until then, here’s an early treat. A first look at the Ant-Man helmet prop. (more…)

SDCC14: Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Panel Reveals New Characters And Gag Reel

- 07-25-14Comics, TV Posted by Luke Gallagher

Comic-Con: Teaser for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Debuts!

What do fair-weather baseball fans and Marvel’s Agents of Shield have in common? First sign of doom and they bail. Only true fans stick it out long enough to catch those special rare moments when the team they’re cheering for surprises everyone and makes for a rousing comeback win. That’s what happened with AOS. There’s no arguing the first half or so of the first season was to be called into question on the characterization and quality front. Doubts, however, were washed away when the show brought in the world changing events from Captain America: The Winter Solider and ended on a very dramatic high note. SHIELD  got good, and it hopes to stay good.

Keeping the excitement going, Marvel was in full force today at San Diego Comic Con, where a number of Agents of SHIELD announcements for the upcoming second season were, well, announced. New characters revealed, secrets from Patton Oswalt, and more. (more…)

What’s Going On With Marvel’s Ant-Man? – Production Loses 3 Cast Members, Including Patrick Wilson

- 07-25-14Cool Stuff, Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 7.13.27 PM

It’s the incredible shrinking Ant-Man – just, you know, the wrong kind of shrinking. Seriously, is there a revolving door in the Ant-Man set?

Ever since the unexpected and dumbfounded separation of director Edgar Wright, the Marvel Studios production of Ant-Man continues to be a spectacle in developmental challenges. The ever fluctuant production has now just lost 3 of its stars, including Patrick Wilson. Cue the obligatory “Things aren’t looking good for this movie. I’m sure it’ll turn out ok, but I’ll always wonder what an Edgar Wright Ant-Man movie would look like” comment.  (more…)

- 07-24-14Film, Videogames Posted by Luke Gallagher

Hitmanheader
Here’s your first official look at the new film version of Hitman. You remember the 2007 film Hitman, don’t you? It starred Timothy Olyphant and Olga Kurylenko and was directed by Xavier Gen (who’s also made the ‘X’ segment of The ABCs of Death). If you don’t then that’s okay, because the producers of Agent 47 certainly hope you don’t end up recollecting it. The official Facebook page and twitter handle for 20th Century Fox’s Hitman: Agent 47 have gone live. To help kick things off they’ve released the first official image of Rupert Friend (Homeland) as the title character. (more…)

Welcome to a very special edition of Nerdy Bits. Normally, this daily feature is a collection of various nerdy goodies from around the web – cool stuff that has slipped through the cracks or aren’t quite substantial enough on their own. Since the nerd world is transfixed on San Diego Comic Con this week (Brace yourself, it’s all you’ll be hearing about for the next few days), we thought it befitting to allocate this column to all the swag and other neat con items that might otherwise be overlooked. Nerdy Bits will return as usual next Monday. Until then, enjoy this Nerdy Bits – Comic Con Edition, with more to follow.

ABOVE: Hot Toys Back to the Future 1/6th scale figure is coming. It’s about time (no pun intended) BTTF is getting the upscale figure treatment. It was its density, er I mean, destiny. In any case, your wallet is sure to say “Whoa Doc, this is heavy”. [Hot Toys] (more…)
