19 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Film and TV's biggest annual convention, the San Diego Comic-Con, has wrapped up for 2014 and there was no shortage of incidents to set geek hearts aflutter.

From superhero showdowns, to a crossover involving two of Fox's most beloved families, Digital Spy rounds up 9 highlights from this year's Comic-Con below:

1. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman make a dramatic debut

Warner Bros opened up their panel by bringing out the big guns, namely Batman v Superman stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and director Zack Snyder. The studio unveiled the first look at Gadot's Wonder Woman before sending Hall H into a frenzy with footage of the Dark Knight and Man of Steel staring intensely at each other.

2. Game of Thrones introduces its season five cast

Craig Ferguson compered the panel for HBO's small screen hit, with the big headline being the reveal of nine new cast members for season five. »

Comic Con: Dreamworks Animation panel w/ Home and Penguins of Madagascar

23 hours ago | | See recent JoBlo news »

Dreamworks brought three films—well, two films and a prop—to Comic Con 2014 and they didn't look terrible! Craig Ferguson was brought out as moderator, and much like the Game of Thrones panel, he completely killed it. He welcomed everyone to Comic Con, "the one week housecats dread all year." He also constantly mocked how terrified everyone is of Jeffrey Katzenberg and kept showing the audience the flowchart Dreamworks gave him of supposedly »

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

28 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

Mad Max” Rules: For a film that didn’t have much interest in it going into Comic-Con, George Miller’s “Mad Max” (pictured, above) played huge for Warner Bros., earning raves from the thousands who watched the first trailer and action sequences from the film that rumbles into theaters next year, spreading positive word-of-mouth like wild fire across social media platforms. It’s certainly the darling of this year’s Con. »

12 highlights from the 'Big Bang Theory' 2014 Comic-Con panel

25 July 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The ongoing contract negotiations with CBS/Wbtv and the core cast of "The Big Bang Theory" loomed over Friday (July 25) morning's San Diego Comic-Con panel, or at least the negotiations loomed if you happened to be obsessed with such things. If you're not, the negotiations were a total non-factor in the spirited and amusing give-and-take between the show's writers, moderator Craig Ferguson and the Comic-Con crowd.  According to a story, question monitors at the panel prevented Deadline from asking about the negotiations, which raises exactly two issues for me: 1) The writers of "The Big Bang Theory," for the most part, could hardly have less to do with negotiations that are going on far, far, far above their paygrade or job description. Even the highest ranking writers on the panel, folks like co-creator Bill Prady and showrunner Steve Molaro, could hardly have less to do with those negotiations and »

Bradley Cooper admitted to being a huge fan of HBO's “Game of Thrones” during an appeared on “The Late Late Show.” As Craig Ferguson is also an avid viewer, the two of them geeked out about the show for a few minutes, and they absolutely didn't worry about spoilers at all. See photos: Party Report in Pictures: Bradley Cooper, Mindy Kaling, Benicio del Toro, Charlie Hunnam Their conversation spoiled not only the shocking turn at the end of the first season, but it also touched on developments in the latest season as well.

Game Of Thrones Comic-Con Panel Recap: D.B. Weiss, David Benioff, George R.R. Martin, and the Cast Look Back at Season 4

25 July 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Game of Thrones Comic-Con panels are tough because there’s nothing to really show.  Unlike The Walking Dead, the new season isn’t only a few months away.  Shooting on Got: Season 5 is just about to begin, so it’s not like there’s going to be a full trailer ready to go.  Instead, these panels function as retrospectives on the most recent season.  As a big Game of Thrones fan, I always enjoy these leisurely, pressure-free panels that almost function like debriefs.  We don’t know much about season five, but we’re going to learn about the most memorable scenes from last season Hit the jump for my Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel recap. [Warning: Spoilers for the Show through Season 4] The presentation began with an amusing gag reel for season four, which is capped with a great bit of Tyrion approaching his trial.  Presumably, this will be on the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD.

'Big Bang Theory' at Comic-Con: When Leia met Vader, a Wil Wheaton appearance, & more

25 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

The Big Bang Theory, no surprise, is a major hit with the Comic-Con crowd. When the show’s writers and producers gathered for a panel at the con, they delivered a consistently entertaining panel, with a few surprise guests and a couple of tidbits about the show’s upcoming eighth season.

Things kicked off with an appearance from Garfunkel and Oates (a.k.a. Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who played Lucy on Big Bang). The geeky folk duo wrote “If I Didn’t Have You,” the song Howard sang to Bernadette this season, and they serenaded the Ballroom 20 audience »

'Game of Thrones' offers Season 5 teases at Comic-Con: Live-Blog

25 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

That was a fine "Walking Dead" panel. And now, Hall H is going from zombies to White Walkers, or from "Walking Dead" to "Game of Thrones." The panel is supposed to include series masterminds David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, franchise creator George R.R. Martin and a slew of cast members including John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane), Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). Oh and Craig Ferguson will be moderating. That's another big panel. Click through and follow along! 1:45 p.m. Hall H is, again, running a couple minutes behind. No biggie. 1:48 p.m. We get into things with blooper reel footage of Charles Dance on the Iron Throne, of Pedro Pascal giggling with a face covered with blood, »

Comic-Con: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Team on Season 8, ‘Star Wars’ Trivia

25 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ juggernaut comedy “The Big Bang Theory” invaded Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 on Friday morning, with latenight host Craig Ferguson moderating a lively discussion with the writers and executive producers.

Garfunkel and Oates (comedy-folk duo Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome) — who wrote Howard’s song to Bernadette, “If I Didn’t Have You” — performed a special version of the nerdy tune at the Q&A.

Star Wil Wheaton appeared midway through the panel in an orangutan mask — an homage to “Serial Ape-ist 2: Monkey See, Monkey Kill,” the movie within the show that his character is filming with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) — and the producers showed a spectacularly campy mock trailer from the fictional flick during the session.

There was much talk of “Star Wars” at the panel, given that stars James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher appeared in one of last season’s most memorable installments — and showrunner Steve Molaro admitted »

9 best moments from Benedict Cumberbatch's Comic-Con debut

25 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Yesterday (July 24) was a day full of firsts at Comic-Con 2014. Aside from being the first day of the con overall, it also marked the Sdcc debuts of several big-name stars - among them Matthew McConaughey, Christopher Nolan and some chap called Benedict Cumberbatch.

Thursday is typically the quietest and least busy day in Hall H, and yet this year on Wednesday night there were already fans camping out to guarantee their spot the next morning. The reason? Cumberbatch, who was to take part in DreamWorks' presentation for the upcoming Penguins of Madagascar.

And the man himself did not disappoint, showing up on dapper, witty and insightful form. Below, Digital Spy rounds up the best moments from Cumberbatch's Comic-Con debut.

1) "You exist?" were his first words to the shrieking crowd of fans as he arrived onstage, who were making their existence very demonstrably known.

Penguins Of Madagascar Comic-Con Panel Recap: A Great DreamWorks Animated Film Might Be on the Way

24 July 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Following the panel for Home, DreamWorks Animation moved to Penguins of Madagascar.  In the upcoming spinoff, the scene-stealing penguins take the lead, and are joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) and his covert team of protective animals as they try to stop Dave (John Malkovich), a malevolent octopus.  Even though I’ve never been much for the Madagascar movies, the Penguins have always been wonderful, and I was interested to see if they could carry their own movie.  Judging by what they showed us today, they could have one of the funniest films of the year. Hit the jump for my Penguins of Madagascar Comic-Con panel recap. They started off with the teaser trailer, which you can watch below: Panel Highlights: Moderator Craig Ferguson brought on Directors Simon J. Smith, and Eric Darnell, and the voice of Skipper, Tom McGrath. Smith says they’re about 70% finished with the movie. »

Comic-Con: Cumberbatch in Con debut

24 July 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Benedict Cumberbatch earned a rapturous reception from the adoring masses in Hall H during his maiden Comic-Con appearance at the DreamWorks Animation panel on Thursday (24) and hinted at future visits.

When asked by an audience member towards the end of the panel – the first by a Hollywood studio at this year’s show – if he would return as Sherlock next year, the British actor said “Possibly.”

To the business at hand. Cumberbatch was in San Diego to talk up his first ever voice role in an animation. He plays Classified, a secret agent wolf who aids the eponymous Penguins Of Madagascar, due out in November.

“I like the idea of unpacking a spy and trying to make him more human, if that makes sense with a wolf,” he said.

Cumberbatch said he jumped at the chance to work with John Malkovich, another Comic-Con debutant in attendance who voices the part of the villainous Dave the octopus.

'I became the alpha male': Benedict Cumberbatch's unbelievable wolf story

24 July 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - Even with credits in fan-favorite films and shows like "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Hobbit" and "Sherlock,"  Benedict Cumberbatch has never attended the San Diego Comic-Con... until now. The English actor dropped by for a lively panel for Dreamworks Animation, for his voice acting gig in "Penguins of Madagascar." And he didn't fail to impress the adoring crowd in Hall H. The actor's best material came during the audience Q&A, and with silly banter with moderator Craig Ferguson. He described what it took for him to "become" his part in "Penguins" -- a wolf named Classified who runs his own undercover agency with "the whole Bond pastiche." "You have to go undercover for a long time. I worked in Yellowstone Park as a wolf for a while, I was accepted by a band and things got hairy -- no pun intended -- when I became the alpha male, »

Home Comic-Con Panel Recap: DreamWorks Animation Presents Dazzling, Colorful Footage from the Sci-Fi Comedy

24 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Our Hall H coverage begins with the DreamWorks Animation panel.  I’ve stated my issues with DreamWorks Animation films in my reviews of their recent movies, but I’m always open to being surprised, and what they had to show today was encouraging.  They started off with Home, which is about a race of aliens, the Boov, who invade Earth, and follows Boov social pariah Oh (Jim Parsons) and his unlikely friend, a human named Tip (Rihanna). Hit the jump for my Home Comic-Con panel recap.  Craig Ferguson (who voices Gobber in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise) moderated the DreamWorks Animation panel, and it was inspired choice to get him to do it.  At times it felt like an impromptu version of his talk show.  He opened with the joke that Comic-Con is “the weekend all domestic cats dread.”  He followed with a few more jokes, pointed out »

Comic-Con: DreamWorks Animation Brings Out Benedict Cumberbatch, Jim Parsons

24 July 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Any questions about Sherlock and Comic-Con is canceled,” said Craig Ferguson.

Ferguson gamely tried to deflect attention away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s signature role and onto “Penguins of Madagascar,” for which he voices the wolf called Classified. But every time Ferguson, who hosted the opening Hall H panel, mentioned the BBC show, the crowd’s excitement increased.

See Also: More Photos From Comic-Con

DreamWorks Animation brought “Penguins” voice cast including John Malkovich and Cumberbatch, and Jim Parsons, who voices the lead character in alien fantasy”Home,” along with both of the films’ directors to Comic-Con. The 6,500 person hall wasn’t full and the fanboy crowd didn’t seem wowed by the very family-friendly fare.

One of the presentations “surprise” moments occurred when Parsons took a photo with a cardboard version of Rihanna’s “Home” character, Tip, in the singer’s racy Council of Fashion Designers of America outfit.

Honey West and T.H.E. Cat: A Girl and Her Cat, by Win Scott Eckert and Matthew Baugh • Moonstone Books, 180 pages • $6.99 paperback, $5.99 digital

Way, way back in the early-1960s, the Chicago Sunday Tribune had a separate section devoted entirely to books. Books, as Craig Ferguson explains frequently, are bound collections of sequentially numbered pieces of paper called “pages” that are, in fact, extremely long tweets. In that book section of yore, there was a “paperback books” columnist. Paperback books were collections of sequentially numbered pages, each in a size smaller than the original, bound in soft cardboard. At the time, most of these paperbacks cost thirty-five or fifty cents.

Stop shaking your heads, Boomers, and go back to finding nibs for your fountain pens so you can sharpen up your cursive. Yes, we are old. Just deal with it. Being a ComicMix columnist, I am honor bound to digress. »
