Documentarian Morgan “McDonalds really hates my guts” Spurlock attended Comic-Con back in 2010, taking his camera with him to capture a weekend of fanboys, icons and some sexy cosplay, and he has finally released a trailer about the event that has been described as a Mecca for geeks.
And so far, it’s not a scathing look that focuses on stereotypes and cliched ideas surrounding that culture, as the Spurlock doccie instead presents a more respectful take on the passions and enthusiasm that goes into attending such an event.
Stan Lee, Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon are also present for the documentary, as it explores what a cultural phenomenon that the comic book fandom has become.
See for yourself in the following trailer and official synopsis;
