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.
(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.
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.
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.

"My son was there. He was in the bus. He saw what Clark did." - MAN OF STEEL (2013)
Of all the lines of dialogue in the film, MAN OF STEEL, this particular one stands out in my mind. It is a line that I will always associate with one of the most incredible days of my life - Saturday, July 14th, 2012.
Not only did I get to experience the first ever footage of MAN OF STEEL, but I also helped save almost 10,000 people in line for HALL H... and it almost killed me.
Two years ago, at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, everyone was eagerly anticipating the Warner Bros. panel inside HALL H. There was a pretty exciting line-up that year: Pacific Rim, The Hobbit and MAN OF STEEL were going to be featured.
My brother Ivan and I were going to be there that Saturday. The only way to make sure we get inside was to get in line early. Real early. We got in line at 2:00 a.m. that Saturday morning. We would have lined up earlier, but I needed to get some rest beforehand, because I had donated blood at Comic-Con Thursday morning. I only got two hours of sleep that night.

ďThere are Supermen in the future, and Supermen in other worlds. There's a Superman from TV, a couple Supermen with darker skin, a bunch of evil versions of Superman, and a Mecha Superman who's more like a Transformer than a Kryptonian.
ďAnd thatís just this summer.
ďSo is there something going on with Superman? Why is DC embracing so many versions of him all of the sudden?Ē
Good questions. What do you think?
The bit about 1% of the proceeds going to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is buried in the Rolling Stone article, but it features somewhat more prominently on this eBay infographic advertising the auction.
Obviously Snyder is having some fun with the black cloaks they make them wear to cover their costumes when performing somewhere where the public might see them.
