As “your mission,” – “You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push!” – You came back to see what I accomplished on Saturday. It was justice… Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
I arrived early at Comic-Con, around 8 am, and got in line for Hall H. After hearing that the movie’s director, Zach Snyder, showed up the night before driving the new Batmobile, I knew it was going to be a long shot getting into Hall H.
I got in line far from the front. In fact, I was across the street and around the corner down by the marina. Just to clear up how crazy this line was, there were people camped out over night!
When the line finally started moving and I inched closer to the main entrance, I noticed one of the Comic-Con employees holding a counter to tally the total attendance and stop the line when the Hall fills. I asked him what number he was at and he responded with a number that was music to my ears, “4,400.” I was going to get into Hall H for Batman!
It was around 10 am by the time we finally entered Hall H.
Once seated inside, it did not take long for the presentation to start! The presentation started with The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – which is currently in theaters now. Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer both showed up in Hall H.
Next they showed us Pan, which opens in theaters on October 9th. Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund, and director Joe Wright all came for the presentation. They said, “Pan is completely new for 2015. It’s an origin story of how Pan became Pan.”
Joe Wright said, “Their inspiration was the strangeness of JM Barrie’s book.”
After Pan, we were shown the Suicide Squad. Margot Robbie, Will Smith, director David Ayer and a few others showed up. David Ayer made a bold claim and stirred up excitement when he said, “These are the best villains ever.”
Suicide Squad led us to the main event for Hall H.
When it was time for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the trailer was shown twice because everyone loved it so much! The presentation opened and closed with the trailer.
Once the trailer played, the actors came out on stage and the star power was truly amazing. Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Zach Snyder all showed up to talk to the crowd. It was incredible to see them all. Zach Snyder said, “It’s not the story revival of Batman v Superman, it’s their own version.”
“Your mission, should you choose to accept it…” is to stay tuned and see what I did on the final day of Comic-Con. As a spoiler, I will be talking more about some of the crazy costumes and vendors at Comic-Con. “I’ll be back.”
