Sure, some people go to Comic-Con to check out what's coming up in the wide world of comic book-related properties (and more, so much more), but plenty of fans take it as an opportunity to bring their own, already existing talents to the big stage. And what talents they are! If there's one thing that every single Comic-Con can always deliver, it's an eye-popping array of fresh new cosplay outfits and get-ups, and this week's 'con is no different -- and it's just getting started.
It's San Diego Comic-Con 2013, and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ stars Andrew Garfield, Dane DeHaan and Jamie Foxx are sitting next to their director, Marc Webb, on the Hall H stage, ready to face the thousands of comic book and movie fans in attendance during a Q&A. A kid, maybe in his late teens, makes his way up to the mic and addresses a question to Garfield himself. Identifying himself as a gay Asian American, he wanted to know if the actor felt any pressure in making his stance on LGBT equality known, referring to previous comments made by the actor.
Family trees in the Marvel universe -- cinematic or purely comic book -- tend to be a little twisted. When it comes to James Gunn's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' that's definitely still the case, thanks to a pair of adopted sisters that look poised to spend the film's runtime slowly moving away from each other and towards opposite ends of the personality spectrum, with plenty of hand-to-hand combat to keep things strange.
We've known for a little while that Marvel is taking a break from 'Iron Man' after three films with star Robert Downey Jr. And while they will likely make another 'Iron Man' in the future, it hasn't been clear if Downey Jr. would don the suit again. In a new interview, the actor and star of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' hints that he's not quite ready to give it up.
On the heels of the reveal of the exclusive concept art poster for 'Ant-Man,' Marvel Studios has also unleashed two concept art posters for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' at Comic-Con 2014, featuring our heroes battling a whole bunch of nasty robots.
One of the films we're looking forward to the most at Comic-Con 2014 this week is Marvel's 'Ant-Man,' which recently picked up director Peyton Reed and writer Adam McKay -- not too shabby. And now, thanks to this Comic-Con exclusive poster, we have a preview of some of the concept art Marvel will be offering during their panel.
Just a couple of days ago Marvel claimed dates for five untitled films between 2017 and 2019, but they're not done yet. On the eve of Comic-Con 2014, Marvel has announced yet another release date for yet another untitled mystery movie -- but we have a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more about these untitled projects this week.
After being bumped up to an 'Arrow' series regular in season 2, Colton Haynes' Roy Harper is making another leap -- this time to becoming a full-fledged member of Team Arrow, and he's bringing his red hood with him as he goes by a name comic book fans will be quite familiar with: Arsenal.
If you've already made plans to check out James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as soon as the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe hits theaters on August 1st, you probably don't need any extra nudge to get your butt into a cushy multiplex seat. But if you've been wondering if you should experience the film in IMAX and haul out for a midnight screening, it looks like the scales have just now been gloriously tipped.
With Comic-Con 2014 less than 24 hours away from its grand start, the internet is a flurry of missed flights and scheduling headaches and excitement and worry and Hall H line preparation and ... release dates? Yep, the studios are capitalizing on the Comic-Con excitement to announce the release dates of some very geek-friendly films and Sony took the chance to let everyone know when they'll be able to see 'The Amazing Spider-Man 3,' 'Sinister Six' and 'Uncharted.'
