Tweet UPDATE: Gal Gadot Cast As Wonder Woman; Supermodel Actress Is First Big Screen Diana Prince Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman and a skinny one at that. Gal Gadot is relatively unknown but not so much. She most famously starred in Fast And Furious 6, so if one stars in anything they can’t be unknown, right? The Isreali supermodel was picked by Zack Synder to play Wonder Woman in the planned Batman v. Superman movie in development by Legendary Pictures. Batman vs. Superman, set to be released July 15th, 2015, stars Henry...

Tweet The Flash, the famous crimson speedster of DC Comics fame is coming back in his own new series in 2014 on the CW, and starring former Glee actor Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. If you remember the story of The Flash, or never knew it before, Barry Allen was a police forensics chemist who gained super-speed after a set of chemicals was accidentally struck by lightening. The first television version of The Flash starred John Wesley Shipp in 1990, starred John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen / The Flash (Created by Gardner Fox...

Tweet Godzilla 2014 Release Date Moved To Summer 2014? Alexandre Desplat is the Godzilla 2014 composer, and that was directly from a call this blogger made to Kraft-Engel, where Laura Engel is Mr. Desplat’s agent. The news that Mr. Desplat was going to score the next Godzilla movie came from a source on a message board called FSM Board, or Film Score Monthly. And that source was said to have been “Legendary Pictures Online” – but there was no official word from Legendary Pictures. What the person...

Tweet Godzilla 2014 Update: Lack Of Marketing, Trailer, Upsetting Godzilla Fans Godzilla 2014. Who’s responsible for special effects production as this movie, the hoped-for American improvement to that disaster of a so-called Godzilla movie of 1998, speeds toward a Summer 2014 release? Well, after some digging by this blogger, the Godzilla 2014 special effects team consists of: WETA, MPC, Double Negative, CafeFX, Amalgamated Dynamics Inc., and The Third Floor. Video Note: The Godzilla Encounter Wows At Comic Con 2013: WETA...

Tweet Comic Con 2013 has an army of thousands of cosplay folks, especially women… (Wait, you’re saying that you have more Comic Con content?). So, in an effort to get out all of the video material Zennie62 owns, here’s a blog post presenting three of them. First, I happened upon this group of women as I was walking in to the San Diego Convention Center on Sunday morning. They actually made their Halo / Starship Troopers Uniforms at home, and from patterns they found online – it took them eight hours to...

Tweet Sharknado 2 is headed for New York. But the movie that was being marketed at Comic Con 2013… Will not have American Pie star and icon from the first Sharknado Tara Reid in it. According to TMZ.com, the producers of the movie had a meeting and determined that the only actor they wanted back was Ian Ziering. Tara played his wife. This blogger thinks that’s a load of bull crap. Stay tuned. ...

Tweet Legendary Pictures pulled out all of the stops to provide a great Godzilla 2014 teaser at Comic Con. And while it seems Legendary’s efforts were hampered by Warner Bros. (more about that later) what the company that’s owned an ran by Thomas Tull did was more than impressive: the Godzilla Encounter. The Godzilla Encounter at Comic Con is a kind of assembly of movie sets of the kind you might see in a Godzilla movie. Legendary Pictures staff and marketing consultants converted a warehouse located at the corner...

Tweet The Sidekick stars Rob Benedict, Jason Ritter, Lizzy Caplan, Jordan Peele, Martin Starr, Josh Meyers and Richard Speight Jr. in a comedy that is “an offbeat take on the superhero genre and an allegory about the struggle to find your purpose in life even as you are being…repurposed.” Here’s the trailer: The Sidekick was screened at Comic Con San Diego and to a packed house that I ,sadly, missed. I was looking forward to it, mainly because I’m acquainted with Jason Ritter, and from my interviews...

Tweet Comic Con regular Kevin Smith has presented a number of movies at the San Diego Convention Center over the years, but this one, called The Dirties, is undoubtedly the most controversial one he’s brought to Hall H. The Dirties is about a group of high school teens who are planning a school shooting. The official press release reads: Synopsis: When two best friends team up to film a comedy about getting revenge on bullies, the exercise takes a devastating turn when one of them begins to think of it as more than...

Tweet President Obama at Comic Con? Well, yes, sort of. President Barack Obama and his Secret Service detail were at Comic Con 2013, and in the form of Reggie Brown and five security guards. You see, Reggie Brown is the World’s best Obama impersonator, and was at Comic Con 2013 to help promote a new app called “BattlePillars.” BattlePillars is described as a “free-to-play backyard adventure enables users to construct an army of battlepillars by choosing various weapons and armor to overcome the...

Tweet MARVEL Entertainment was kind enough to send along photos from its panel on Friday night at Comic Con, and featuring Louis D’Esposito, Director & Marvel Studios Co-President, the actress Hayley Atwell, who played “Peggy Carter” in Captain America: First Avenger, Brad Winderbaum, Producer, and Eric Pearson, writer. The panel, held at Reading Cinemas Gaslamp 15, and formed to celebrate the release of Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and the bonus feature Agent Carter, starring Hayley Atwell, is releasing on HD Digital...

Tweet Quietly, the design for Godzilla as envisioned by its director Gareth Edwards was revealed Thursday, during Comic Con, and he’s a small frozen animal in a plastic glass cage, held in status, which means he can’t move. Just kidding. The glass box holds the design of a Godzilla that seems to be a cross between the 1985 Godzilla and the original 1954 Godzilla, plus a wee bit of the sleek, muscular look of the 1998 Godzilla. The design is just the start of what’s expected to be a movie trailer clip...

Tweet Comic Con day two starts with the typical family taking photos outside, and dressed in superhero attire. That’s what happened when I decided to walk from my hotel room to the San Diego Convention Center. What’s interesting about Comic Con is the number of fans who really know about the properties they follow. One example is a man who stopped me and seemed to know everything about the Showtime series Dexter . This video contains just a few seconds of a much longer video, which could have been even longer...

Tweet This is an interesting take on the story of Jesus, and something you don’t normally see promoted at Comic Con. Here’s the press release: The opening chapter in the epic life story of a man who changed the world forever, FIRSTBORN is the debut graphic novel in the much-anticipated THE LAST ADAM series. Written by Mark Arey and Matt Dorff and published by Zondervan, Firstborn adds a visual spin to scripture, meeting the growing demand for graphic novels in the faith arena. Firstborn is an origin piece, a starting...

Tweet Comic Con 2013 is full of surprises, like the way I met Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants. I left the NERD HQ Party at Petco Park, and was just walking past The Omni Hotel, and toward The Hard Rock Cafe, en route to Nobu for a bit. On the way, I passed a group of three people, one of which a man who was looking up, shielding his face, and the other two, a man with glasses and a woman, talking. I asked the one guy who was shielding his face if he was OK, and he said yes, so the other man then asked what...

Tweet In this blogger’s annual talk with David Glanzer, the Director Of Public Relations for Comic Con International, it was revealed that Comic Con wants to come back to San Francisco, but is still waiting for a response from the City and County of SF. That was one of a number of topics David Glanzer and I talked about, but it was the major one. Two years ago, Wonder Con was forced out of Moscone Center and out of San Francisco, due to planned expansion of the North Hall. As San Francisco lacked alternative space,...

Tweet Haven, the critically acclaimed series based on Stephen King’s book “The Colorado Kid,” invades Comic Con 2013 with a number of events. First, Haven itself stars Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant, and Eric Balfour, as characters who work to help people in the fictional Maine who are suffering from “supernatural afflictions.” Here’s a scene from Haven: The Entertainment One (eOne) Comic Con Events eOne announces the creation of “Haven: After the Storm,” a 16-page comic book...
