During the chaos that was San Diego Comic-Con 2010 Walt Disney Pictures held a little panel. Within this panel, a tiny little movie called Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was touched on. Actual footage from the movie wasn’t shown, but a special guest by the name of Captain Jack Sparrow did make a surprise video appearance to the roar of the crowd.
Usually stuff like this doesn’t make its way to the eyes of everyone who can’t be at Comic-Con, but this particular footage has shown up online. We can’t offer any promises as to how long it will be available for your viewing pleasure, but you can check it out by clicking over to the other side now!
The video is just Sparrow (Johnny Depp) relaxing outdoors with a bottle of rum and chatting about the upcoming movie to fans. There’s no movie footage or anything, but for fans of the movies who are excited about this new chapter, it’s exciting enough to see.
Those looking forward to DC Universe: Online got a good look at the game on Saturday at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con as the first teaser trailer was shown for the game. The trailer showed Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Cyborg taking on Cersei, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Black Adam, and Lex Luther in a battle in a bombed out city. After some fantastic action, Superman flies in to save the day, only to find out he’s too late, as Brainiac shows up with an invasion. We then learn that everything we have just seen has been in the future, and we then see Lex Luther go back in time to hopefully spread the power that will enable players to create their own heroes.
Those at the panel were lucky enough to gain VIP codes to access the beta for the game, which will go live on November 2nd. Other things discussed at the panel were the voice cast, which includes Mark Hamill as the Joker, Kevin Conroy as Batman, Adam Baldwin as Superman, James Marsters as Lex Luthor, and Gina Torres as Wonder Woman. The inclusion of Conroy and Hamill is sure to please a lot of fans of Batman: The Animated Series.
Director Zack Snyder and his cast of Sucker Punch, his follow-up to his successful Watchmen adaptation, was on hand for the Warner Bros panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.
Snyder noted that, with his co-writer, he’d been working on the story for 8 years. He was motivated by the desire to create an original property “not based on a breakfast cereal or superglue, or anything like that.”
He then introduced the panel which included Carla Gugino, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, and Emily Browning.
Browning plays Baby Doll, whose mother dies, and is placed by her father in an insane asylum to be lobotomized and needs to discover a way to escape, if only through the world inside her mind. Hudgens plays Blondie, who fires some of the biggest guns in the film. Malone plays Rocket, who rallies the troops toward the idea of escape. Chung plays Amber, who’s loyal to Baby Doll. Gugino plays Polish psychiatrist Dr. Gorski, a dominatrix/choreographer/madame-type.
Jon Favreau came out over a blare of loud rock music, thanked the Iron Man franchise for bringing him here again, and announced that since 3D requires shooting on digital video, and Cowboys & Aliens is technically a western, he wanted to shoot on film, so… the film will not be in 3D.
Favreau introduced the panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, which included Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Adam Beach, and screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Last, but not least, he introduced Harrison Ford, who made his Comic-Con debut appearance. Understandably the crowd went absolutely nuts and gave him a long and rousing ovation. He came out in handcuffs, led by two security guards, a callback to a bit of unpleasantness earlier in Hall H where one attendee allegedly stabbed another over a seating arrangement.
There was an EXTREMELY brief Q&A session in which Ford was asked if when he was growing up, he ever envisioned a Comic-Con reception like this. No, he said, he just wanted to be a working actor. Craig was asked about the future of the Bond franchise, to which he replied that he has no information about it, but he wants it to get going as soon as possible.
Favreau announced that he’d only been shooting Cowboys & Aliens for 4 weeks, but insisted to Dreamworks that they get something amazing prepared for Comic-Con. Then he rolled the footage, which, from a technical standpoint, looked beautiful. Check out the footage description here below.
Sony was present at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, and though they didn’t show off anything exciting from their reboot of Spider-Man, they did bring plenty of goodies to present for Priest, The Good Guys, and The Green Hornet.
They began with the new adaptation of Tokyo Pop graphic novel, Priest. The movie stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Stephen Moyer, Karl Urban, and Maggie Q, who were all in attendance. The movie tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world that’s been devastated by centuries of war between humans and vampires. A priest (Bettany), who fought in the last big war, comes out of hiding to track down some vampires who kidnapped his niece.
The panel opened with a teaser trailer (which you can actually see below…though I’m not sure for how long). After that they go into some questions for the group. Basically just questions about what drew them to the film and and Bettany re-teaming with director Scott Stewart (Legion) and such.
