“Oh what a day. What a lovely day!” Friday was a great day, and will probably be my favorite day of Comic Con. It was full of my favorite casts being happy with their internet accounts. The panels yesterday were perfection (minus the whole Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD having to share a panel)!
Agent Carter already wins with Hayley Atwell alone, but it becomes even better with James D’Arcy added to the mix.
What makes the Dubsmash even better is what Luke Mitchell tweeted earlier.
With this Con where Agent Carter is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is close by.
Now if they would have only told me Jemma will be ok, the day would have been perfection.
Then there was iZombie with one of the best announcements of the day.
This made me happy because the show lacks with number of girls.
The winner of the day would have to be Star Wars with the surprise concert and free lightsabers. It proves that Comic Con is indeed a magical place where just about anything can happen.
San Diego Comic Con officially started today, but you could already feel it in the air last night.
Last night, Conan had his first Comic Con episode and it dd not disappoint. The episode was nerd heaven with all the references, and the the art department should get major kudos for their geeky creations.
The Mad Max: Fury Road introduction was glorious. Conan has had some great introductions in the past, but this may be my all time favorite. The credits were also amazing with the comic style, and you end up playing guess the reference all throughout.
The show then hit the ground running with the new Wolverine auditions.
Personally I would watch a new Wolverine movie with Nick Offerman or Betty White. I also think Kristen Schaal should be in a Ghostbusters film.
Then there was Gollum coming out and stealing Elijah Wood’s The One Ring.
The best part of the night for me was the Seth Green appearance and him and Conan having a lightsaber battle.
Another highlight of the night was the Lucifer writers tweeting this pic.
I fell in love with the pic first and foremost for the Tom Ellis, but then I noticed how many writers are women. While it is not an equal amount (my true wish for a writer’s room) there is still a good representation.
Finally, the cherry on top is of course Hayley Atwell. I’m counting it because she is Peggy Carter. This lady is going to steal Comic Con this year with her awesomeness and Dubsmash videos.
San Diego Comic Con starts this week, and the internet will come alive. My Tumblr and Twitter feed will fill up so fast, it will be hard to stay on top of it. The internet has made it easier for people who are not able to attend the Con. News of panels and interviews arrives seconds after announcements are made (some sources even livestream). Then there is my favorite part of this coming weekend, NERD HQ. Where some of my favorite people do panels with fans for charity. While I may not be there in person, I made a list of randomness to find while living on the internet for the next few days.
1. Surprise Guests
2. Hayley Atwell doing at least 3 Dubsmash videos
3. Someone giving the finger (probably a cast member from The Walking Dead)
4. hearing the word “Awesome”
5. mention of a Chuck movie
6. seeing former cast mates meet up
7. mention of Stephen Amell’s upper body (bonus points for visual)
8. Firefly reference (there should be many this year with Con Man being at SDCC)
9. obscene amount of PDA between casts
10. cosplayers from canceled shows
Have a fun weekend, and may it be full of epicness! Always remember you can have fun on SDCC weekend thanks to the internet. Yell at your friends at how rude your favorite people are being and bond.
