Happy Comic-Con! It’s that nerdtastic week where pop culture enthusiasts flock to San Diego to celebrate their favorite upcoming films, TV shows, comic books, videos games and more.
While the convention holds tons and tons of panels featuring the stars and creators of our favorite forms of entertainment, it would be impossible to see it all. But here are the 13 events that you definitely will be hearing about this week.
Thursday, July 24, 2014 – DreamWorks Animation panel
It’s true. He will be there in the flesh. Benedict Cumberbatch will grace San Diego Comic-Con with his presence for the Penguins of Madagascar panel. He is a voice in the film, although we’re guessing a lot of ladies will be losing their voices due to many high-pitched screams once he steps on stage.
Not that we want to wish the summer away, but is it October yet?!? We need to know what happens to our stranded zombie-fighting friends! The cast will be there to drop some juicy details on what to expect from the new season.
Well, this is going to be fun. Craig Ferguson wll serve as moderator of the BBT panel which will surely include questions about Wolowitz’s mom, Leonard and Penny’s relationship and many, many Bazingas. Let’s just hope the cast has signed on the dotted line by then…
This one’s giving us chills already. While some Avengers: Age of Ultron footage was shown recently in London, the buzz around the Con is that at least some of the cast will be in attendance and ready to show the Marvel fans what they want: superheroes on the screen.
Will they show us some Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage or what? While they haven’t confirmed that, it might make some heads explode. Peter Jackson will also be on hand to talk about the last Hobbit film, and at the very least there could be a Tom Hardy sighting when the first footage from Mad Max is screened.
