There are arguably few fandoms quite as large or with quite the rabid following as the Whovians who follow BBC’s Doctor Who. And 6500 of them turned out in force for the show’s panel on Sunday at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Moderator Chris Hardwick (The Nerdist podcast) introduced the panel members, which included current showrunner Steven Moffat, executive producer Caroline Skinner, Matt Smith (the titular current Doctor #11), Karen Gillan (Amy Pond), and Arthur Darvill (Rory Williams).
One of the many surprises of the day on Saturday in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con was Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis making a surprise appearance at the Warner Bros. panel to answer some fan questions about their upcoming movie The Campaign.
Ferrell and Galifianakis gave an aspiring comedian some advise and then showed off some footage from the film. Everyone was excited by the footage, which was mostly just the standard trailer, with a little bit of new footage added in. Ferrell showed off that he can still work a crowd, and Galifianakis is just as funny. Everyone in the room had a good time during this surprise visit.

We’re heading in to the final day of San Diego Comic-Con and with all the excitement going on at the convention show floor over the last few days, it can be easy to miss some of the great cosplay at this year’s con. Thankfully, Geeks of Doom has got your back with a selection of some of (in our opinion) the best cosplayers in the exhibition hall so far.
See photos here below for more than a few Dark Knights, an Elvis Vader, and about half of The Justice League, and be on the lookout later for even more cosplay photos from this massive convention.
The Warner Brothers panel today at the San Diego Comic-Con surprised the audience at Hall H with a sneak peek at WB/Legendary Pictures’ upcoming film, Godzilla, from director Gareth Edwards.
The brief test footage (the film hasn’t actually begun filming yet) started with some smoke and then showed a city that had been completely destroyed by something. As the trailer moved forward, the famous “I am become Death” speech by J. Robert Oppenheimer — “We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture… ‘Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'” — played over the scenes of devastation, implying that the movie will use the effects of a nuclear bomb or something along those lines as the creator of Godzilla. In the middle of the footage, we see a multi-legged monster that has already been killed. Then, as the trailer comes to a close, we get a shot of a new design for Godzilla. The footage ends with the classic Godzilla scream.
The last studio panel of Saturday’s Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con began with a year-by-year video retrospective of Marvel’s Hall H presence, including past panel footage. “You’ve been here,” text on the screen read, “in this very room, helping us to assemble The Avengers.” The video went on to thank the Comic-Con fans for making The Avengers the number one superhero movie of all time.
