July 27, 2014: DC Comics Bests Marvel with Online Comic-Con BuzzPrint

Wonder Woman Variety reports that Warner Bros./DC Comics received more online buzz than Marvel with their Hall H appearance at San Diego Comic-Con.

    DC bested Marvel at Comic-Con with its film presentation Saturday - at least when it came to early online buzz.

    The first look at Warner Bros. and DC's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" edged out Marvel's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," generating 112,108 overall mentions and 8,356 intent-to-view mentions, or 7%, according to research group Way to Blue.

    "Age of Ultron" received 62,542 overall mentions, but a higher intent-to-see response, with 8,483, or 14%.

    What helped WB and DC was the surprise appearance of Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, who play Batman and Superman, respectively, along with the first look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the film.

    When it comes to studio buzz, Warner Bros. again dominated Saturday at Comic-Con with 45% of the conversation. But the company was also aided not only by its bigscreen superheroes but also its shows on TV presenting in San Diego on Saturday, including "Arrow" and "The Vampire Diaries."

"War is Coming"

Writer: Tom Taylor

Inker: Julian Hugonnard-Bert
Cover: Jheremy Raapack

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    The story jumps seven months into the future, which is a good thing, as it means that Year Two will end shortly, and this exercise in sub-mediocrity will soon be over. Once more the war with the Green Lantern Corp takes centre stage, and this time, it's for all the marbles. The GLC has brought Mogo, so we know that their defeat will be spectacular, or can at least hope so. The underlying issue with the battle is in knowing that regardless of its cleverness or lack thereof, the GLC is going to lose. The focus should be on Regime Superman's descent, but it seems for the story's purposes, he's in full despot mode... until he isn't. It's a surprise to see excellent touches like Harley bringing a muzzle for Canary, that reminds one how jacked this universe is. Harley has thought about Connor's potential powers, but Canary hasn't? Surely the baby cried on birth, but why let logic and common sense ruin a good comedic moment? One aspect of the issue that is intriguing is the inclusion of Mogo. This will obviously be a battle with heavy consequences and all to remove Regime Superman from power, when the Guardians could so very easily on their own. They could just teleport him to Oa and there would be no battle, and no potential loss of life, but where is the sense in that?

    An easily unentertaining issue. The build-up of the battle with the Green Lantern Corp fizzled magnificently, and the Guardians have taken themselves out of the picture... which is pretty much like the Guardians. They could end Regime Superman's run any time they wanted to, but that would mercifully end this insipid storyline. Injustice Year Two has no focus whatsoever. The idea should to show the growing encroachment of Regime Superman's rule, but it's bogged down with boilerplate conventions and superhero tropes that just don't mesh well with the world that's been established (and that is said with extreme generosity) here. Superheroes in a realistic setting and amidst the political, social, and iconoclastic themes that Injustice attempts to espouse requires careful planning for the story to be of true worth. However, does the story need to be of any true worth? Furthermore, does the story need to make sense at all? The premise of Injustice is implausible through its execution, yet it doesn't seem to matter to the readers that consume it weekly.

July 26, 2014: "Batman v Superman" Hall H 2014 ReportPrint

Hall H Hall H starts with the moderator, The Nerdist's Chris Hardwick, welcoming everyone into Hall H. After a brief hello, it was time for the screen to get bigger. The curtains on the side of the room pull back to reveal two enormous screens that now surround half of Hall H.

Warner Bros. has brought these enormous screens to Comic-Con the past three years, in order to give us an ultra-cinematic experience that dwarfs even the biggest movie theaters.

Everyone cheers as the music builds to a climax, fully revealing these enormous screens.

Chris Hardwick then says that we're not done, and the music starts again and the curtains pull back EVEN MORE, to reveal what are the largest screens ever placed in Hall H. In my 20 years of visiting Comic-Con, and my many times in Hall H, I have never seen anything like it. The screens take up the entire walls of Hall H, giving you a 180 degree view.

They waste no time in beginning the panel. The lights go out, the music plays, and it begins.

Hall H (Disclaimer: The following descriptions of the footage will be described as best as I can remember it. Everything happened so quickly, I didn't get enough time to document anything, I'm doing this straight from what I remember, sitting in Hall H).

A quick glimpse of Superman appears in the front screen. He pops up again on another screen with a different pose. The music keeps building. We then see an image of Superman punching Doomsday with an uppercut. Then glimpses of Batman appear. The screens go black. Superman is shown on the furthest side of the left screen, with Batman on the furthest right. They approach each other at the center front screen, with the final glimpse of them facing each other. It ends with the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice title card.

Zach Snyder comes out. He's met with great enthusiasm. He says he brought a few friends with him. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck come out. People cheer. Then Gal Gadot walks out and joins them.

Hall H Snyder says they have only been shooting for two months now, there really isn't anything to show us yet. But, he was able to put together a tiny teaser, just for the San Diego Comic-Con. The room goes black, and we get to see the FIRST footage ever filmed of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Thunder strikes. A dark night in Gotham City. The camera pans down over the roof of the building. We see Batman. He is wearing very heavy battle armor. Very similar to Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" version. The eyes of the cowl are lit up, his eyes glow bright like lanterns. He uncovers the Bat Signal. The emblem on the Bat Signal is the same one from Dark Knight Returns. He turns on the signal, shining it into the sky. It's pointed directly at Henry Cavill's SUPERMAN. He is floating, staring back at Batman, and he does NOT look happy. His eyes start to glow red. It looks like he aims his heat vision at the Bat Signal, but it's not clear if that happens because that's where the footage ends, and the title card for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is displayed.

Hall H The crowd cheers unlike anything you have ever heard before. Snyder thanks everyone, and they show the footage again.

The whole short experience could not have lasted more than 10 minutes.

The crowd roared. People were in tears. The feeling is indescribable. This is my 20th year attending the San Diego Comic-Con, and it just keeps getting better. I predict that one year from now, there will be enough footage of "Batman v Superman" that we'll get to see scenes from the actual film. I will do my best to be inside Hall H in 2015.

"The Men of Tomorrow" - Chapter Two: "The New Superman"

Writer: Geoff Johns
Penciller: John Romita Jr.
Inker: Klaus Janson
Covers: John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson & Laura Martin

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Superman outside of Action Comics and Batman/Superman has had one of the rockiest starts in the New 52, Clark quit his job, friends and career to become a blogger, Superman became a punching bag for cosmic threats... these were among some of the worst choices in direction to ever face the character. As much as I hate inflating a writer's ego, in two short issues, Geoff Johns has returned Clark to more familiar ground for older audiences and not made it too dull for the newer readers. Returning much of Clark & Superman's life, mythos and supporting cast has felt like a massive relief yet also a breath of fresh air.
