Comic Issues #180 – Gearing Up For SDCC Part 3

It’s finally here! San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is upon us, and Comic Issues will be there every day: roaming the sales floor, photographing cosplay, interviewing actors and artists and writers, and looking for that perfect print or figurine to buy for our own geek lairs.

Join Anthony, Elizabeth, and Leland from Movie-Issues in our third and final installment of Gearing Up For Comic-Con, as we ask the all important questions: did Han Solo’s busted ankle cost us a Star Wars panel; are we going to the Masquerade; which panels are we standing in line for; what’s up with Batgirl’s new costume; why is the internet talking about a ball pit; and can you or can you not kick people if they’re in your way? (No. You can’t. Leland, I’m talking to you. Behave.)

[SDCC 2013] The Visionaries Panel

Entertainment Weekly’s “The Visionaries” panel in Hall H was a true meeting of the minds: directors Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 500 Days of Summer), Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men), and Edgar Wright (Spaced, The World’s End, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) sat down and just talked about filmmaking.
