WonderCon

While Comic-Con International has been rumored to be moving away from its home in San Diego, one of its subsidiaries, Wonder-Con, has now finally made that move.

CCI has announced that Wonder-Con will be leaving its home in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, which is undergoing renovations, and will now be taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center. The event will be held from March 16-18, 2012, which is interesting, as ReedPop’s C2E2 is held during the same month.

Doctor WhoFollowing WonderCon 2011, we are launching not one, but TWO episodes of TARDISblend this week! The promotions and publicity for Doctor Who Series 6 is moving full speed ahead, with many revelations, news items, rumors, spoilers, and other stuff abound. Co-host Tom Cheredar was on assignment for Geeks of Doom at WonderCon this year and got to catch up with both Toby Haynes and Neil Gaiman.

For episode 21 of the TARDISblend podcast, we focus on Tom’s interview with living legend Neil Gaiman, as he discusses his writing of the fourth episode of Doctor Who Series 6, enigmatically titled The Doctor’s Wife. While Gaiman remains mostly elusive about specific details about his episode, he does discuss a lot about his experience in working with Steven Moffat. Following the interview, Greg and Tom discuss the rumors and spoilers surrounding The Doctor’s Wife, including the footage shown at WonderCon involving an Ood and… Time Lords?

In addition, we take a look at the developments in the world of Torchwood: Miracle Day, which is scheduled to premiere in July. We examine the teasers and promo material being published and pushed out currently by BBC Worldwide and Starz USA, and discuss how things come to pass to set up the scene for Miracle Day. What happens to Jack Harkness? How and why does he return to Earth?

Doctor WhoFollowing Wondercon 2011, we are launching not one, but TWO episodes of TARDISblend this week! The promotions and publicity for Doctor Who Series 6 is moving full speed ahead, with many revelations, news items, rumors, spoilers, and other stuff abound. Co-host Tom Cheredar was on assignment for Geeks of Doom at WonderCon this year and got to catch up with both Toby Haynes and Neil Gaiman.

For episode 20 of the TARDISblend, we focus on the interview with Toby Haynes and on the two-part launching episode for Series 6 of Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. Taking a look at the confirmed information, the spoilers, and the rumors, Tom and Greg speculate what the two opening shows may hold for the Doctor and his companions — in a season which (by some indications) may redefine how you view the show.

In addition to some of the news and rumors, we pay tribute to two Doctor Who legends who have since passed away: Nicholas Courtney aka The Brigadier, and Michael Gough aka The Celestial Toymaker. We reflect on their contributions to the show and to entertainment in general, and mourn these big losses.

Mark Sheppard At WonderCon 2011What’s in store for the good Doctor this season? Big changes — especially to the relationship between lovable red-head companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and The Doctor (Matt Smith), according to Doctor Who director Toby Haynes, who along with writer Neil Gaiman and actor Mark Sheppard participated in a panel this weekend at WonderCon 2011.

Haynes is the director of the Season 6 premiere episode “The Impossible Astronaut” as well as the second part “Day of the Moon,” but fans may recall his previous directorial credits, which include “The Pandorica Opens” and “A Christmas Carol.”

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2011

Henry Cavill At WonderCon 2011Attention was focused on Henry Cavill during the Immortals panel today at WonderCon 2011 as it’s the actor’s first major public appearance since being cast as the Man of Steel in the new Superman movie directed by Zack Snyder.

“The new suit is still in development, so I haven’t tried it on,” Cavill said in response to the first fan question about what he feels like after putting on the Superman costume. He also talked about the training he went through to get in shape for Immortals, which no doubt made him an even more perfect candidate for Superman. “Lots of cardiovascular, lots of mixed martial arts, and eating very little.”

The trailer Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals was debuted. Cavil stars in the film as Theseus, who’s chosen by Zeus to protect the homelands from the threat of the titans and save the gods.

WonderCon 2011: Alien Revealed In Exclusive Footage at ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ Panel

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2011

Favreau At WonderCon 2011Director Jon Favreau refused to be outdone today at WonderCon 2011 by the 10-minute Green Lantern clip, so he played a 9-minute reel that included an exclusive first look at the alien from his new film Cowboys & Aliens.

The alien was shown at the end where a toothy looking creature reared its large ugly head into the opening of a cave where people were presumingly trapped inside. I’d say it looked pretty similar to Aliens, but I didn’t get as good of a look as I’d have liked to (side note: thank you person sitting in front of me who had to go to the restroom at the most inopportune time).

The scene started out with Daniel Craig‘s character Jake Lonergan walking up to a building and inspecting to see if anyone else was inside. He enters and starts dressing a wound just as a gun is pointed at his head from behind by Meacham (played by Clancy Brown). “Two kinds of men get shot: criminals and victims. Well, which one are ya?” Meacham says, which Jake replies with “I don’t know.”

WonderCon 2011 Video: Ryan Reynolds Talks Green Lantern, Flash & Deadpool Movies

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2011

Green Lantern Panel at WonderCon 2011Star of the upcoming Green Lantern film Ryan Reynolds said he was pretty damn impressed with the footage showed off at this year’s WonderCon after being in a skin tight blue suit that didn’t breath well in Louisiana. [For details on that footage, read: WonderCon 2011: Ryan Reynolds Shows Off New ‘Green Lantern’ Footage and Watch Now: 4 Minutes Of New ‘Green Lantern’ Footage]

It was a fun panel filled with lots of banter between Reynolds and the audience. He joked with the fans about reading Green Lantern comics for inspiration, saying if he hadn’t at this point the fans would have run him out of the convention center in an angry mob — and then seemed disappointed that the crowd was slow to chant the Green Lantern oath with him, stopping midway through to reveal that the “front row just bombed it.”

“I was going to come out here and tell everyone I was cast a the lead in a new Flash movie since it’s April Fools Day,” Reynolds said, adding that he’d likely “be systematically murdered” if he played another super-character. And since he wouldn’t be playing Barry Allen, he suggested the role for Bradley Cooper, which got a mixed reaction from the crowd.

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2011

WonderCon 2011: Game of Thrones BoothThe folks from HBO set up an impressive booth at this year’s WonderCon featuring a full-scale replica throne that is an exact match as the one that will be used in the forthcoming television series debuting Sunday, April 17, 2011.

Not only that, but fans can actually get their picture taken on the throne and subsequently uploaded those photos to Twitter or Facebook using iPads set up at the booth by the staff. It’s actually pretty cool and if I had the time I would have waited in the tremendously long line to do just that.

They also had a collection of costumes from the set that they have on display, which I’ve conveniently taken pictures of and embedded the thumbnails below for all of you who can’t be in San Francisco this weekend for the convention. Check them out here below.
