As much as I would love to say that I’m currently taking a break from roaming the con-floor to report back, I’m actually still in sunny England, being very envious of everyone who is there!Just because I’m not there doesn’t mean I can’t report all the amazing news that’s come from CC! So much fantastic news has come out this weekend that I won’t be able to report on it all, I must apologise if I’ve missed out any of your favourite things!
Let’s start with a bit of TV news first: Sherlock. While Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman weren’t at the panel, Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Sue Vertue were. They happily revealed that we will be properly find out how Sherlock survived that fall from the St Barts hospital, but more importantly how his death affected everyone. “The big thing we wanted to explore,” Mark Gatiss said, “is that in the original story, Dr. Watson’s reaction is dealt with very quickly. He sort of forgives Sherlock. And we thought, that can’t happen. Because if your best friend pretended to be dead, then reappeared, that’s going to have a big impact. We wanted to explore how it affected all of the regulars.” By the sounds of it, it’ll be worth having tissues close by – I expect Johns story will be heart breaking!
Although the stars werent able to make it, Cumbers and Freeman did sent a video to keep us entertained:
Sticking with the superhero theme, Zach Snyder officially announced a Superman/Batman team up for the next Superman film. Snyder said, “I just wanted to say I know there’s been a lot of speculation about what we’re doing, and I wanted it to come from me and say that it’s official that we’re going to do another Superman movie.”
“The truth is I’m not going to tell you what it’s about, but I can say that maybe there’s a single element that will be in the film that I could help you out with. And so I was thinking about how to do that, and I pored through the DC Universe to find a way to tell you this thing, and I came across a thing that might sum it up.” Harry Lennix, who stared in Man of Steel, was on hand to help with the reveal quoting from Frank Millers The Dark Knight Returns ” I want you to remember my hand at your throat. I want you to remember the one man who beat you.” Then, just to make it even more obvious, showed a Superman shield with the Batman logo behind it.
If you’ve been on Twitter in the last couple of months then you probably know about the Veronica Mars Kickstarter project. When the TV series finished a few years back, there’s been so many rumours about there being a film and now there finally is. Director, Rob Thomas, and Kristen Bell – Veronica herself – joined forces to get the film made and put it on Kickstarter. The money needed for it was raised in a matter of hours and they’re currently filming over in the States. To keep us occupied they’re teasing us with this glourious little trailer:
