Mega Movie panel Wizard World
A low key day at Wizard Philly today. Although I only got there 1 hour after the doors, I walked right in to the exhibit hall. No waiting in lines. Traffic seemed very light. The panels - not announced on the site- were kind of small potatoes.
PhillyGirl and I saw MidJersey friends: Dave Perillo, Scott Derby, Louie from Geek Boy Press, Michael Parla.
Bought the excellent new trade "Tales of the Starlight Drive-In", available from Image Comics. MJCC inker friend Tom S did 2 stories. I read a few on the train ride home, and maybe it is the Jersey setting, but really enjoyed how the years passed from the 1950s on.
Went to the Mega Movie panel and took some notes, maybe 1/2 full, moderated by Wizard guys:
The Hulk -- Norton dust up might have been exaggerated, will do some press. Robert Downey will appear as Tony Stark.
Wanted- JG Jones and Millar GN movie "loosely based" on GN. Millar happy with the outcome. Rumor of "Kick Ass" movie based on new title.
Hancock was more popular than expected.
Hellboy II- Doug Jones role expanded, love interest in this one. Mignola collaborated on story and creature design, set design
The Dark Knight-
PG 13 (phillygirl said "aw"!)
not an origin story
Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow will appear!
