Around the same time Fox dropped their massive slate, HBO also detailed Comic-Con plans. Though they’ll only be bringing Game of Thrones and True Blood, I’m guessing both will be huge hits. Here’s the details:
Game of Thrones – Thursday, July 21 – David Benioff , D.B. Weiss, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Jason Momoa and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in attendance. George R.R. Martin, the author of the “Song of Ice and Fire” books on which the show is based, is moderating. – Season 2 doesn’t start filming until after the con so expect a Q&A about both the first season and the plans for the second. A huge crowd is likely as it’s gained a big following and this is their first con visit.
True Blood – Friday, July 22 – Creator Alan Ball, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Kevin Alejandro, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Nelsan Ellis, Joe Manganiello and Deborah Ann Woll on the panel. – This is always a success and the amount of cast members they’re bringing is insane. I expect fan pandemonium. The big question: How will they get them all on stage?
