Movie Wars: Saturday Edition


DC wins, barely.  They showed the new Wonder Woman costume, and what sounds like an awesome trailer.

Marvel?  More cast for “Antman”, the announcement of “GotG 2”, and a teaser peek for “Age of Ultron”.

DC didn’t announce anything from other movies (as rumored by Nikki FinkeHere’s her analysis of CCI so far). Could be DCE still hasn’t quite figured out the production schedule, especially for what follows SvB.

Marvel didn’t discuss anything past Ant-Man.  So, “Untitled” is “unknown”.  Might there be something announced at NYCC?

Marvel did win the TV battle, with the possible appearance of Mockingbird on Agents of SHIELD.  Although Ra’s al Ghul will appear in the next season of Arrow.

Guess I’ll go see Scarlett Johansson star in a superhero movie instead… (with Morgan Freeman!)

*Peter Potter?

He is best known for playing Harry Potter – who could use an invisibility cloak every time he wanted to go unnoticed.
And it seems Daniel Radcliffe has come up with his own way to mingle with the masses as he demonstrated at Comic-Con at the weekend.
The 25-year-old donned a full Spider-Man suit as he walked around the showroom floor at the pop-culture convention… even stopping for pictures with oblivious fans.

* Zombie Walk Turns Critical as Car Hits Bystander

Officials said the victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. She’s expected to recover.

Two other people were also left with minor injuries.

The car’s driver has been cited, but he will not be criminally charged.

The incident remains under investigation.

This is not the first time something like this has happened.

Here in New York City, there are hundreds of police officers stationed along parade routes.  Sometimes, the parade will be stopped for traffic to cross.  How many of San Diego’s finest are on patrol downtown during Comic-Con?

A struggling animator asks questions during the Family Guy panel.

 * Bleeding Cool shows the actual cease-and-desist letter from CCI to Salt Lake Comic Con.

I’ll let our legal eagle analyze this, but I always thought it was the hyphen that made the name.  There are a lot of “comic con” events out there, one run by a corporation which could easily fight CCI in court.

Here are the trademarks CCI owns/owned.  Myself, I look forward to the San Francisco Comic-Con.

* calculates the cost of attending Comic-Con,

but makes too many mistakes to be link-worthy.  ($740 for airfare?)  Their total: $1,615.  Note that this does not include shopping, but does include cosplay.

And that’s it?!?

Okay… let’s see what the news services offer:
