Yes boys and girls, it’s that time of year again. San Diego Comic Con. Unless you’re a bum, you know what Comic Con entails. Kick ass movies and TV shows being revealed to blow our minds, breath taking video games that will change our playing experiences forever, and yes, scantily clad women who know nothing about comic books showing up to try and become famous. I personally have to say, this was my favorite Comic Con in a while. I’m a sucker for funny shows, bad ass superhero movies, and shoot em’ up video games. So this suited all of my geek needs. Since this was such a huge event with so many things. I’m going to split up the Con into three categories; Movies, TV shows, and last but not least, Video Games. I’m going to showcase one thing from each category that stood out to me the most. So let’s dive into this thing.
I guess a good place to start would be movies. The only movie at the Con that really stood out to me this year was “The Man of Steel” set for release some time in 2013. This is a complete reboot of the old Christopher Reeve Superman films in a more modern tone. Producer Christopher Nolan of Batman/Inception fame tells us that this new film will deal with current events such as political unrest, War, and economic turmoil. I for one am completely pumped to see this newest installment in the iconic Superman franchise. While Superman isn’t my favorite Comic Book hero, I do love his story. After his planets death, an alien outcast must join our society. When called to duty, every day normal nerdy guy Clark Kent must put on the legendary red and blue spandex threads to battle evil in our world. From what Nolan has said about the picture, it’s really going to be about Clark finding himself among the humans of Earth. As for me, you can find me at the midnight release. P.S. I hear Russell Crowe is playing Superman’s dad, so that’ll be sweet!
Guess the next logical thing to talk about would be TV shows. This section is going to be kind of short because I just want to touch on one subject. NBC’s comedy “Community”. The “Community” panel at Comic-Con introduces the viewers to showrunners David Guarascio and Moses. This has been confirmed to be the final season of Community, and I am personally sad to see it go. Being a college student, it’s funny to watch a bunch of adults pursue higher education. This show may not have had a huge viewer following, but its fans will remain faithful to it in its final season. That’s all I really have to say about that. Except, does anyone else smell a Community movie?
Our third category is video games. MY FAVORITE! Since I pretty much summed up all of my top choices in my E3 coverage blog a little while back, I decided to cover a game that I forgot. The game is called “The Last of Us” being released exclusively for the PlayStation 3. This game is set in the post-apocalyptic eastern United States. The plot of the game is still under wraps, but developers have set the story follows two survivors of some sort of mass natural holocaust, as they make their way from Boston to Pittsburg. The game was developed by the “Uncharted” series creators, so you know were in for a treat.
As for the women, there’s only one thing to be said. But I won’t say it here because were clean over at KMItv. So I leave you with this picture:
