There are two San Diego Comic-Cons; the one attendees experience and the one for the rest of us. The television arm of Warner Bros. was busy making sure that the people at home got to see four trailers for DC’s upcoming television slate while attendees got to see actual pilots.
Judging from reports, one of the big winners at SDCC was MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Warner Bros. building on the buzz isn’t holding back as they unleashed four character posters and the footage that they showed at SDCC right away. And, frankly, it looks as nuts as THE ROAD WARRIOR must have looked over 30 years ago.
During its animation panel, Marvel Television announced a brand new, upcoming animated series, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. It’s been a great day for GUARDIANS with next Friday’s film getting a sequel in July 2017. GOTG will join Marvel’s Disney XD lineup, which also includes AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, HULK AND THE AGENTS OF S.M.A.S.H., AND ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN: WEB WARRIORS. Clearly, Marvel has a lot of faith in GOTG’s potential to be its next major franchise across multiple platforms, as they should.

Just as Marvel Studios took over Hall H, Marvel Television has been staking its claim for Ballroom 20 at San Diego Comic Con the last two years. This year’s panel delivered big news for the upcoming AGENT CARTER and returning AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb, sporting a Hydra t-shirt, was on hand to moderate. Continue reading
The Wrap exclusively reports that Joaquin Phoenix is under consideration to star in Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE. This would certainly qualify as the kind of “out of nowhere” choice that makes for a cool Hall H announcement, but nothing appears to be official as of yet. While it’s easy to see Marvel considering an actor of his caliber, time will tell if Phoenix is willing to sign the type of long-term, multi-picture deal the studio asks of its stars.
