Technically, my Comic-Con is over, but I've got a fistful of articles, including this one, before I'm done with my Comic-Con experience. Which guests showed up at things and what happened in general has been well-reported by now. All I can offer at this point is my perspective and my reaction to the footage and the conversations at the various panels I attended, with a final piece that will wrap up all the random little odds and ends left worth sharing, and there will definitely be a few.
The last panel I attended in Hall H this year was the Marvel panel, one of the two most anticipated things for me this time around. I wanted to see "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," and I wanted to see the Marvel panel. And in both cases, I think they were absolutely worth the anticipation.
The Marvel panel was moderated by Geoff Boucher of the LA Times Hero Complex blog, and it was divided into three distinct parts. First up, Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige brought out Joe Johnston, Chris Evans, and Hugo Weaving to represent "Captain America: The First Avenger," and they showed us two bits of footage. The first was a costume test that they managed to build into a sort of a teaser trailer, using a lot of newsreel footage to set the WWII tone properly before revealing two quick shots of Cap standing in a warehouse somewhere. And I mean quick, too. They don't linger at all. After the title comes up, there's one last quick shot of Cap hurling his shield right at the camera, and that's it. It was as big a tease as a tease can be. You can't help but wonder why, and I'm still not sure about what I saw in that quick flash of him in close-up.
