Comic-Con 2013: Friday Schedule Includes ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ ‘The Walking Dead’ and More!
Comic-Con 2013 has revealed its full schedule for Friday, July 19 and it’s a doozy. Whether you’re going to Comic-Con for the big Hall H presentations featuring footage from upcoming blockbusters or hoping to learn the backstage workings of the entertainment industry from more personal panels, this is a day that will please fans of all tastes.
Let’s get the big ones out of the way first.
With ‘The World’s End,’ their third film in the loosely connected “Cornetto Trilogy” right around the corner, director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will grace the Hall H stage. There are few things as exciting as watching these three geek icons interact, so this will be a must-see panel.
If you hang around Hall H, Wright and company will be followed by the panel for the Kickstarter-funded cinematic resurrection of the beloved cult show ‘Veronica Mars.’ Key members of the cast and crew will be on hand to present the first footage from the project and answer fans’ burning questions.
Universal will take the Hall H stage next, bringing with it the cast of ‘Kick-Ass 2‘ and ‘Riddick.’ Although the official ‘Kick-Ass 2′ guests haven’t been announced yet, Vin Diesel will grace Comic-Con with his presence alongside director David Twohy and co-stars Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista.
However, the big event of the day will be the Columbia Pictures panel, which will present footage from ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ the ‘RoboCop‘ remake and ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.’ The cast and crew of all three films will be present for a Q&A, with Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan showing up for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.’
And then there’s Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Whew.
Some of the best and most popular shows on television will also hold their panels on Friday, including ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘The Venture Bros.,’ ‘Defiance,’ ‘Adventure Time,’ ‘The Legend of Korra,’ ‘Bones,’ ‘Children’s Hospital’ and more. New footage will vary from panel to panel, but rest assured that the guest list is stellar.
And all of that is before all of the excellent niche panels, including plenty of cool-sounding looks at the comic industry (because it is Comic-Con, after all). You can check out the full schedule for yourself right here and let us know what panels you’re looking forward to in the comments below.
