It’s Sunday. Con is slowly running down. As am I… Ann Curry cosplaying, Robert Morton Downey Jr., Will Ferril directing “Total Recall”…
Here’s the latest (and I do me “late”… I didn’t scan Saturday’s news!):
I’ll be reverse linking… starting at the latest news listings at Sunday, 1 PM ET, and working my way down the feed…
Ah-EEEEE! Godzilla is coming! (To the big screen, via Warners and Legendary. So who does the comics tie-in, DC, IDW, or Legendary?)
The Washington Post instructs on how to enjoy Comic-Con remotely. Awww… Robert Downey, Jr. surrounded by little Iron Men!
(Here’s the info about RDJ and the kids! There was an Iron Man contest for kids at the Marvel booth! He is now one of the coolest actors in Hollywood. Oh, and that blurb from a restroom? AMPAS, please get him to host the Oscars next year!)
Our friends over at the Mary Sue (we get together for random game nights at random Manhattan bars), have the “while you were sleeping” summary of Saturday. Ant-Man has been cast, and has been at Con?!
Mondo, purveyor of awesome geek prints, announces a special “Dark Knight Rises” print, on sale for 24 hours only. Plus one lucky consumer wins a special print!
How the con’s show floor is like finding a mystic portal into a British children’s novel, explains the Onion’s AV Club.
Weekend Edition guest host David Greene takes a tour of the largest comic book convention, the giant Comic-Con in Los Angeles [sic]. Audio file at NPR.
Prism Comics reports from the Con! Part Two.
The Jakarta Globe features the secret superhero of Image Comics! (Via the New York Times, if the byline is any indication.)
Red Capret photos from Comic-Con, including the latest from (just a sec… let me cutandpaste…) Adrianne Curry, who appears to be cosplaying as…someone from Mortal Kombat? (sorry… I avoid videogames with more than one button) At least she has muscle tone! Unlike those Spider-fans Eoin Colfer saw!
Let’s see… Ms. Curry has cosplayed: Wonder Woman, Slave Leia, Sally Jupiter, Raptor Jesus, (Mortal Combat), a Death Star officer (nice leather), Aeon Flux, A Clockwork Orange, Leeloo Dallas… [Yes, we search Google for sexy pics of Adrianne Curry so you don’t have to!]
Okay… It’s 2:30, and I’m caught up to Friday night.
So… was it a good prank? I’ll let others discuss Karl Urban’s Star Trek film.
…And I’m up-to date. Let’s try some specific searches… stuff which might have been overlooked…
A month ago (June 15), U-T San Diego reported on trying to get CCI to commit past 2015. Tax funding, actual construction, and a mayoral election remain unknowns.
Deadline Hollywood wonders if there is a Comic-Con Effect for movies. Does CCI help, or hurt, a movie at the box office?
Okay, time to search AP for photos…
Yes, that’s a line.
It’s 5 PM. Time for cocktails outside on the balcony.
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
