We don't officially have a category for "swag", but this falls into that classification. As a big space nerd and sci-fi lover, I can't help but share this nifty bit of swag from Comic-Con that I picked up today. During the Paramount panel yesterday, where they surprised fans in Hall H by bringing out Interstellar director Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey (read our full recap of that panel), the studio handed out tickets to be redeemed for a "prize". That prize? The mission patch from Interstellar, for the "Endurance" Space Exploration mission. It's small piece of swag, it's nerdy, but it's also kind of awesome. In full below. Here's the mission patch that was handed as a prize for those who were at Paramount's Comic-Con panel. Recap our coverage of Interstellar at Comic-Con here, including quotes from Nolan and McConaughey. Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, »

I don't know if you noticed but DC Comics (kind of arbitrarily) declared yesterday "Batman Day." There's nothing really noteworthy about July 23, but it was the opening day of Comic-Con in the year of Batman's 75th anniversary, so they went for it. And today, as part of the overall celebration, a new image of Ben Affleck from Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has been revealed. The photo is actually part of a big montage wall you can see at the DC Entertainment booth on the exhibition floor of the San Diego Convention Center. I was just strolling around that impressive booth yesterday and totally missed it, but as DC wrote at its own blog, "Yes, as fans have started pointing out, within the dozens of photos and illustrations on the wall is a brand new image of Batman from the upcoming film."

Christopher Nolan may not get the fanboy attention he once had, now that he’s done with the Dark Knight Trilogy, but that hasn’t stopped his upcoming sci-fi film Insterstellar from capturing major attention – both at in the mainstream and in the hallowed halls of Comic-Con.
Nolan and his Interstellar leading man Matthew McConaughey surprised attendees of Sdcc 2014 by showing up in person – something Nolan never ever did throughout his whole stint as the director of The Dark Knight Trilogy, or even his previous mega-blockbuster sci-fi film, Inception. The pair was on hand for the Paramount Pictures panel, answering questions about the ultra-secretive plot of the film as well as debuting a new trailer.

#75 pic.twitter.com/Caj2N8iTAb. ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) July 24, 2014 Hey, remember when the fine folks over at DC and Warner Bros were generous enough to give us a look at Batman.s mask yesterday on the floor of Comic-Con? Well, consider that nice little tease officially blown out of the water by the embed director Zack Snyder dropped above! In case you can.t tell, that.s Ben Affleck outfitted in the actual mask a hundred thousand people have stared at on the convention floor over the last day. To state the obvious, it looks a lot better with a real, live human face inside of it. In fact, it.s a pretty striking take on The Dark Knight. That being said, it will do absolutely nothing to stop the jokes and pithy little comments about how over-the-top serious Ben Affleck.s Batman looked in his only other still. Seriously, »
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Caped Crusader, DC Comics are going all out with their “Batman 75″ celebrations at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. That includes revealing a brand new image of Ben Affleck suited up as the iconic character in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
As part of their Batman 75th Anniversary montage wall created for the show, DC and Warner Bros. have included this new image of the next actor who will be bringing The Dark Knight back to the big screen in 2016. It’s a very atmospheric shot, and gives us perhaps the best look at the redesigned cowl yet.
There appears to be something to the right of Batman in this image, so could this simply be part of something bigger? Speculation continues to run rampant that we’ll get a first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman at some point this weekend, »

Should you decide to walk the show floor of San Diego’s Comic-Con International, you might come across a bat-themed surprise: the actual cowl that will be worn by Ben Affleck in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is on display at the convention today.
It may seem like just a cape, but there’s much to be gleaned from its appearance. As DC co-publisher Jim Lee stated in an interview with USA Today, the cape has “a very low drag coefficient,” and suggests “a boxer’s physique.” (A refresher, in case you’re a little rusty on your »

NBC is placing its bets on Constantine, and that’s clear at Comic-Con, where a big interactive display for the upcoming show has taken over Gaslamp Square and ads for the series cover many of the buses in San Diego for the convention. Executive produced by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Da Vinci’s Demons), the series is based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer, which also spawned the 2005 Constantine film starring Keanu Reeves.
Fans got their first taste of the new show at Comic-Con’s Wednesday night pilot screenings. Here’s what they thought.

With two Academy Awards under his belt as well as unforgettable performances in films like Alfie, The Dark Knight, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Hannah and Her Sisters, Michael Caine is a living legend of cinema. So it's about damn time he teamed up with one of contemporary cinema's greatest odes to star power, Vin Diesel. That's right. Summit Entertainment is proud to announce that Michael Caine has joined the cast The Last Witch Hunter opposite Vin Diesel and Game of Thrones's Rose Leslie. Described as a supernatural action film, The Last Witch Hunter will star Diesel as an immortal witch hunter (naturally) who is seeking to stop a current NYC coven from unleashing a devastating plague on mankind. But he can't do it alone, and so must team up with his natural enemy, a female witch played by Rose Leslie. No mention is made in this press release what »
Last year HBO announced it was turning Michael “Jurassic Park” Crichton’s Westworld into a TV series, and if it were anyone other than Home Box Office I’d have told them not to bother. There were attempts to remake the 1973 film which made more sense, but an entire season of faulty robot-based escapades…? The show Beyond Westworld didn’t fare well but still… the pedigree alone is enough to hold anyone’s interest. Add to that the production team of one J.J. Abrams and Jerry Weintraub (Tarzan), not to mention Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight, Person Of Interest) and it gets better. But the new casting announcement of Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood has officially kicked this project into the watch zone for me.
This version appears to take the emphasis away from theme parks gone wrong and has reimagined the concept as a Truman Show-type exploration of identity and artificial intelligence. »

Over at SuperHeroHype they’ve had the opportunity to get some snaps of a very cool stand on display at the San Diego Comic-Con. The cape and cowl of the new Batsuit from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Here it is…
It all looks pretty standard to be honest, with the biggest difference to previous suits being the shorter ears. It is very intriguing that they’ve gone back to a one piece design, as opposed to the overtly flexible neck and head pieces of the last Batsuit seen in the The Dark Knight Trilogy. It doesn’t appear to have much give, but maybe technology has come on since and we’ll have a Batman that has both the iconic silhouette and the ability to back out of the drive a little easier.

Marvel’s Ant-Man could use all the good press it can get, and what better place to get it than at San Diego Comic-Con? Geeks everywhere are still feeling the pain of Edgar Wright’s departure from the film, but things appear to be moving as scheduled and the studio will likely have something to show fans when they take to the stage in Hall H on Saturday.
The only thing we’ve seen from the film is a VFX demo reel Edgar Wright brought to Sdcc a couple years ago, so it’s about time that we get something new. Courtesty of Entertainment Weekly, we have some cool Ant-Man concept art in the form of a Comic-Con poster, which features a great look at Ant-Man’s look, as well as shots of the Ant-Men themselves, Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. There’s also a great image of Ant-Man riding an actual ant, »

"Constantine" is almost upon us, and so it's unsurprising to see the NBC series taking up a presence at Comic-Con. Come on inside and check out star Matt Ryan decked out in all his John Constantine glory.
