Kings of Con 2 Header

Kings of Con debuted Tuesday on the new Comic-Con HQ channel, and boy, the laughs are delivered! This delicious little satirical nugget follows Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. as caricatures of themselves. Their actor friends join the fun and play over the top as well.

I got a chance to talk to Rob about his new show and a bit of other stuff. Check it out below.

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con 2016 — Report
The Iceman   |  

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con 2016

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con (SLLACC), formerly Comikaze, has grown by leaps and bounds in only a few years, to the point where weekend attendance is approaching that of the famed San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). Last year, it was about 90,000, and I’d wager this year’s tally will surpass that.

And much like SDCC about a dozen or so years ago, when interest and attendance seemingly skyrocketed within the span of a year, SLLACC’s sudden growth has come with some pains.

May The 4th: When The 1976 Comic-Con Teased The First ‘Star Wars’
Stoogeypedia   |  

Star Wars Mark Hamill

Since today, May the 4th, marks the annual celebration of that film in the galaxy far, far away known to the billions of generations as Star Wars, I thought it would be fun to go back to 1976, the year right before the film was released when filming was still underway and a generation of science-fiction fans were being teased with elements and characters from the upcoming space opera, most notably at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

The SDCC that everyone knows today circa 2016 was nothing like what it was four decades ago. There was no social media; there was no hint of that kind of anticipatory buzz that comes with each upcoming Con as the New Year bell tolls; cosplay was a term that was non-existent in those days, as well as even trying to get licensed or unlicensed for that matter favorite character paraphernalia to dress up in. You wanted a Spidey mask to wear? You best ask your mom to ask your grandmother to knit one out of itchy yarn. The things that Comic-Con goers take and see as gospel in today’s climate was light years away, unheard of, in 1976.

Warcraft Movie Logo Official1

During Legendary Pictures’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, which also included Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, long-in-the-making World of Warcraft movie took the Hall H stage.

This is director Moon and Source Code Duncan Jones’ third year working on the movie, titled Warcraft, after presenting and teasing the film the last two Comic-Cons. Jones wanted the movie to be an epic fantasy adventure movie, and something that was made to appeal to a wide audience beyond the loyal gamers.

Also taking part in the panel was cast members Travis Fimmel, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper, Daniel Wu, Paula Patton, Robert Kazinsky, Ruth Negga, Ben Schnetzer, Clancy Brown, and Ben Foster.

Nightcrawler X-Men: Apocalypse

While the Deadpool portion of Fox’s panel might have blown the roof off of San Diego Comic-Con 2015’s Hall H, it was X-Men: Apocalypse that brought the biggest lineup of stars.

SDCC 2015: ‘Deadpool’ Panel With Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, More
eelyajekiM   |  

Deadpool Comic-Con

It’s was Fox’s turn to take the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Saturday night, and they brought their superhero big guns with them for the event in the form of X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four reboot, and the Merc with a Mouth himself, Deadpool.

It was the latter that really got the crowd going bonkers, perhaps even eliciting the biggest response of the entire convention when a brutally violent and funny—as it should be—preview of the movie was shown. The trailer got a standing ovation followed by a “one more time!” chant forcing them to play it a second time.

“It’s only been 11 years in the making,” said star Ryan Reynolds, who was on hand for the event. “One year ago, it was some asshole who released the footage onto the internet.” And here we are.

Continue reading for more from Reynolds and more cast, as well as a description of the trailer shown.
