New York Comic-Con
Aside from all the movie and TV panels at New York Comic-Con 2012, we were there for all the cosplayer action. Some of the standouts were the Red Pyramid, 'Prometheus' Engineer, the plethora of Captain America and Lokis, and, of course, all the hot babes in costume. So, with all this geek action going on, obviously the logical thing to do was play a much-needed game of "'Star Wars' vs. Italian Dish."
After the awesome reveal on Friday that Deathstroke would appear on the series as early as the show’s fifth episode, the cast of The CW’s Green Arrow adaptation ‘Arrow’ took the stage at New York Comic-Con 2012 to preview new footage, answer fan questions, and elaborate on the direction of the series. Already, ‘Arrow’ has proved a huge win for The CW, as its most watched premiere in years, so what did the cast and crew have to say?
How iconic is the climax of 'Carrie'? So iconic that all you have to do is put a bunch of blood on a distressed teenage girl and everyone with even a slight knowledge of the horror genre will put two and two together. The first 'Carrie' poster for Kimberly Peirce's remake/re-adaption of 'Carrie' knows this and simply presents us with a blood drenched Chloe Grace Moretz, sans title.
So there’s this little show returning Sunday night called ‘The Walking Dead.’ You may have heard of it. By this point, with season 3 set to debut on Sunday night, you’d think we’d already heard everything there is to hear...but why stop there? Much of the cast and crew were on hand at New York Comic-Con 2012 to preview the new season, take fan questions and talk about their characters!
If you decided to check out the ‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ panel through the New York Comic Con live stream, then you’ll know what we’re talking about when we say the place was packed with herds of Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington-loving fans (some of which previously knocked over pole barriers trying to hold in their excitement in line). The NYCC 2012 panel, hosted by Fangoria Magazine Editor Tony Timpone was held in the IGN theater of the NYC Javits Center, and, besides the two leading actors, featured writer/director Michael J. Bassett and producer Samuel Hadida.
New York Comic Con 2012 is in full swing out of the Javits Center in NYC, and trust us when we say the attendees are just as amped about geekdom as the folks at San Diego a few months back. Since the start of day one, the hordes of thousands have been piling in to get a much-needed taste of comic books, video games, and their favorite shows and movies.
We were there at the front lines snapping shots of all the cosplayers and booths so you won't have to embrace the herd of 'The Waking Dead' lovers yourself (who, by the way, look all the more scary when they're mindlessly pushing and shoving each other beneath the giant 'Walking Dead' billboard).
A few months ago, Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego was packed with comic book nerds, cosplayers, TV and movie fanatics, and members of the press, all of whom were bustling from location to location trying to see as many events and panels as possible. Though we aimed to give you the best possible recaps of everything that happened during the private panels for 'The Walking Dead,' 'Game of Thrones,' Marvel Studios and the like, it sure would have made our jobs a lot easier to watch them streaming live from our laptops. That's something New York Comic-Con is trying to do better this year.
