Comic-Con 2006

Friday, July 21, 2006 by Iris with
Updated August 4th: LoG has a 4 second audio clip of Brandon as Everywhere Man.

Brandon will be voicing Everywhere Man, an original villain, for the WB animated series The Batman in season 4 this fall. Check out a screencap from Comic-Con footage at Legions of Gotham.

July 23rd: Diana Arechiga sent me some photos of her photos of Brandon and Courtney at the DC booth and Outside screening. Check then out here. Also, congratulations to Outside for winning best sci-fi/fantasy film.

Brandon made a surprise appearance at the DC Comics booth on the convention floor where he spent some time taking pictures with fans and signing autographs. He was in San Diego to support his girlfriend, Courtney Ford, as her short film Outside showed at the Comic-Con: International Film Fest. I'll talk more about her fantastic sci-fi short at my blog later on. If you'd like to share your photos of Brandon at the convention, email me.

July 21st
: Justin from BlueTights.net has put online the entire panel discussion in m4a format.

12:13 PM PST:Donner just showed the audience a deleted scene from Superman II where Lois discovers that Clark and Superman are one and the same by drawing glasses, a fedora, and suit on a newspaper picture of Superman.

11:56 AM PST: Richard Donner has just stepped onto the stage.

11:50 AM PST: I'm sitting in Hall H listening to Bryan Singer answer Q+A questions from the audience. Singer treated the audience to a several minutes-long blooper reel that included outtakes from most of the major cast. One line that Brandon got tongue-tied on: "I hope this experience hasn't turned anyone on [flying]." Singer's just announced that he'd like a sequel to be released in 2009 and that the Return to Krypton scene probably will not be on the dvd but may be seen in IMAX 3-D.

July 19th: I'll be giving away several copies of the Superman Returns soundtrack at the convention courtesy Cinemedia Promotions. Join in the discussion at the forum.

July 11th
: I'll be attending this year's Comic-Con in San Diego July 21-23. On Friday, director Bryan Singer will answer questions about Superman Returns and give us an update on what's next. Also, some super-secret guest from the film and past Superman incarnations will be at Warner Home Video's Superman Through the Ages panel that same day.

BT/Planet Member Meet-Up information is here.

Bryan Singer's the only one confirmed for Comic-Con.

I'll be bringing my laptop with me to San Diego so I'll update the site from the convention floor on any Superman news.

Iris said...

All right, I'm in my hotel room.

The Return to Krypton scene is not gonna be on the dvd? ;_; I was so hoping it would. We don't have an IMAX theater around here.

BJ'sSuperFan said...

I wish I could have been there, but alas it was nice to have been able to hear everything you guys taped and see pics, thanks so much to both iris and justin!

Wow sounds Iris and Justin it sounds like you guys had a wonderful time at Comic Con! Thanks for the wonderful updates on your websight about the amazing CC news!

I am so upset I couldn't go to CC especially now that Brandon attended. I had a feeling he would. Oh well there is always next year! :)

But I am glad that he had such a great time. I love how he came Comic Con to not only support Superman Returns but to support Courtney's new movie Outside as well. It looks like a very cool movie! I will have to check it out when it hits theaters.

That was so sweet of Brandon to support his girlfriend. I love those two they are so cute!

The photos look wonderful! Brandon looked so cute! It looks like they had a great time!

I have to see if any of my friends who went to Comic Con ran into Brandon at all. I know they went to the Superman panel and said it was great.

They said that they even saw Sam Huntington who I had the chance to meet at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival in NYC this past April so that was cool. He is so nice and funny that guy.

Anyway I just had a quick question I am wondering what is "The Return to Krypton scene" in Superman Returns? Is it when Clark talks to his mom?

I saw Superman Returns in both the normal theater and at the IMAX and I am trying to remember if anything was added to the movie when I saw it at the IMAX?

Oh well either way I am glad you got to go to the talk and to see Bryan Singer. I can't wait to get the DVD of SR when it comes out! I love all of the behind the scenes stuff and deleted scenes!

Oh and that is pretty funny that Brandon will be the voice over for Batman for Legions of Gotham. Who knew that the Last son of Krypton would be the Dark Knight as well. Kind of funny being Brandon also dressed up as Batman for Halloween in 2004 the year after he went as Superman in 2003.

Legions of Gotham sounds like a cool series I will have to check it out.

Over all I am glad you guys had a wonderful time. It looks like everyone including Brandon had a blast!
