Midweek Mouth-Off: What was missing from Comic-Con 2014?

56 second read

midweek mouth off

Comic Con 2014 hit some pretty high notes, with the Wonder Woman reveal, Ant-Man details, Avengers: Age of Ultron footage, Mad Max: Fury Road and much more. What stood out for me though, was what wasn’t discussed. Much like the lack of The Last Guardian at every E3 since 2009, there were a few announcements that we were all expecting that just didn’t happen.

On Marvel’s side, there was nothing about the casting of Doctor Strange, and any major news other than Batman V Superman was conspicuously absent from Warner Bros, besides for a poster for Jurassic World. There was no word from Paramount about the new Terminator reboot, and not a peep about the new Fantastic Four from 20th Century Fox either.

Considering the glut of information that comes out of Comic-Con every year, we want to know: are you happy that some big news items are still under wraps, or are you disappointed that we didn’t get more from this year’s SDCC?

    The lack of Jurassic World and Terminator: Genesis was really surprising. Both those films are far along enough in production that having the stars come out for a weekend wouldn’t hamper things too much (unlike reportedly Fantastic Four) and they would definitely enough some footage in the can to show something by now.

    I was also taken aback by Marvel not announcing a single other movie other than Guardians 2. I’m not expecting casting announcements or pics or anything, but what they did last year, just flashing up a series of title cards, would have been enough.

      I’m happy with minimal coverage on those two movies since I’m trying my damnedest to avoid spoilers for them. 😛

    Sad they didn’t announce another season of Defiance even though the whole team was there.

      Bah! I’m not convinced to watch it with a 57 Meta rating even though I read your piece earlier this week ;-p

        Yeah, well Eureka was given 40% on RT and I had a great deal of fun watching that.

          Just saying I’m tired of generic sci-fi which go completely against the originality the genre has always espoused. I will in all likelihood give it a go. I listened to Trevor and watched Almost Human and it did get better as the season progressed after a very mediocre start.

            I’d say this is less generic sci-fi than a lot out there. As I said though, it is camp. Like some really hate Dr. Who (and should be shot) because of the same thing. This mixes that with an adult undertone. But again, some will like, others won’t at all (same can be said for Firefly which I loved).

            I looooooved Firefly but don’t enjoy Dr. Who *ducks*

            BANG BANG! LOL 🙂 If you didn’t like Babylon then you won’t like Defiance.

    Thought they needed more screaming fans for Batman v Superman and they could have done with a splash of Wonder Woman. I also thought it would have been cool if they would have announced who is starring in The Last of Us and I would have loved some news or a trailer for Mad Max Fury Road.

    It just occurred to me that despite there being a few massive banners and posters on display, there was ZERO else seen or heard from Neil Blomkamp’s Chappie. That is really kind of weird.
