SDCC News Wrap-Up

In Exclusives, General News by Zack Young4 Comments

Having been away for the last week, I was unable to post a majority of Comic-Con news to the site. Now I’m back though, and ready to catch you guys up on everything that happened this week. I’m providing a brief wrap-up for each bit of news and if you want more, all you have to do is click on the description. First I’ll go through everything I haven’t been able to talk about at all, then I’ll re-post all of my news tweets for those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter. Read on and enjoy!

Non-Twitter News:

Oni Press has announced their entire Comic-Con schedule. This includes previously announced signing schedules and collectibles.

Lionsgate will be bringing their movie Buried to the con by providing the opportunity for attendees to simulate being buried alive. This will be at their booth in the exhibit hall.

Dark Horse Comics has started a campaign called #NotAtComicCon for their fans not attending the con. It will include special deals, giveaways, and announcements.

Angelina Jolie is confirmed to be in attendance for the Salt panel.

The decision on whether or not to move Comic-Con out of San Diego has been delayed until after the con is over.

Twitter News:

WB and Comic-Con have teamed up to provide every attendee with a giant WB bag when they receive their badge. Unfortunately they will be distributed randomly so you can’t choose which design to get.

WB has posted an entire schedule that includes all the autograph sessions at their booth.

The Terra Nova panel has been canceled because Fox didn’t want to reveal any details and they haven’t started filming yet. A Teen Wolf panel replaced it.

The Piranha 3D panel was eventually moved offsite so they could show uncensored footage. Whether anyone cares enough to go remains to be seen.

After rumors circulating both ways, WB confirmed that neither the cast or crew of Harry Potter will be at the con panel. A surprise appearance is still a possibility, but don’t bet on it.

And that’s it! Stay tuned as we will have a ton more awesome content before the con starts on Wednesday night.
