In Exclusives, General News, Panel & Autograph News by Jeremy Rutz4 Comments

We’ve started a new, quasi-regular column on the Blog titled “Under The Tents”. The title is symbolic, as it’s representative of the times we all line up under the tents waiting for those big moments to happen inside Hall H or Ballroom 20.

Here’s the stuff you might have missed for today:

  • The Kickstarter-funded Legends of the Knight, a documentary about Batman’s lasting positive impact, announced to their backers that they’ll be at the Con. Their panel will include some clips from the doc, as well as cast and crew for a Q&A:

 I am thrilled to be part of Comic Arts Conference @ SDCC & hope I will get to see many of you there. During the panel, I will be discussing the film with some of the production team & ‘cast’.  And we are planning to debut a few clips from the film during the session!

  • An interesting tweet last night from Gary Miereanu, publicist for Warner Home Video, who hints at the big things we’ve heard will be announced by DC at Comic-Con this year. Lots of cool news about new films, series and SDCC panels. We can’t wait.

  • We get a lot of questions from our readers regarding a Teen Wolf panel this year, and we seem to have found the answer according to this post from Writer/Producer Jeff Davis on the Official tumblr for MTV’s Teen Wolf:

So no details, but this confirmation comes from the source. Teen Wolf fans, commence rejoicing.
