While the folks behind Game of Thrones produce a lot of little featurettes that end up on YouTube and as extras on the Blu-Ray releases, I don’t think they’ve ever done a blooper reel. In addition to the Q&A with fans and preview of the new cast members added for Season Five, the Game of Thrones panel at Comic Con included a short blooper reel from Season Four. I think that’s a pretty good video for Friday of Ice and Fire.
As you’d expect, Warner Bros. and DC gave us a little treat from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at their Comic Con panel. In addition to showing a short clip and parading the principal heroes out on stage, we also got our first look at Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman armour.
Good news! All your worst fears about Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman have been confirmed!
It’s not E3 but the annual San Diego Comic Con gives game developers and publishers a big platform to make announcements and show off the latest looks at their upcoming games to a big audience. With Comic Con having become a part of mainstream culture rather than just “geek culture,” this past weekend might be the second most important promotional week of the year behind E3. You could make an argument for Gamescom but that’s very gamer-centric so it doesn’t get the news out as far.
This week, we have a whole pile of trailers that come to us from Comic Con. Microsoft has a pretty looking trailer for the Halo 2 rerelease. Licensed games get some love with Lego Batman 3, Firefly Online and a new Sherlock Holmes game getting new trailers. Speaking of new, BioWare teases their new IP in a live-action teaser.
While BioWare doesn’t want anyone to call the fourth Mass Effect game Mass Effect 4 and are keen to emphasize that this is a new story for the franchise, Mass Effect 4 won’t be a complete departure from the status quo for the series. At San Diego Comic Con, BioWare used their Mass Effect panel to reveal the first details of the next game in the franchise.
Yesterday’s Supernatural panel at the San Diego Comic Con had an exciting piece of news for fans of the long-running WB/CW series. A spin-off series is currently in development at The CW.
The current plan is to introduce a new character who would serve as an anchor for this new series in or around episode 20 of Supernatural’s current season. That episode would effectively be a backdoor pilot to this spin-off.

At the end of the Marvel movies panel at Comic Con, Joss Whedon spilled the beans on the upcoming sequel to last year’s big blockbuster The Avengers. Rather than Thanos showing up after his appearance during the credits in The Avengers, we’re getting another classic comic villain.
Coming in summer of 2015 is The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
DC Comics’ big follow-up to the massive success of Man of Steel isn’t the much-anticipated Justice League movie but a movie starring DC’s two biggest heroes. Superman and Batman will share the screen in 2015’s Batman/Superman.
