Yes, why no female superhero movies? But you answered it.

So again, the studio 'thinks'. Why not just leave it up the good fan director? I'm sure the studio's were very hesitant with the emerging super hero direction. But they allowed the right people to  put together some more goofy ass cheesy-ness.

Do the same with the female direction.

Bam, signed, done...

I was LITERALLY about to post an article that addresses that amongst many other issues.

I want more female superheroes, and I want ORIGINAL femheroes, not She-something or SuperBatWoman or anything like that.  Femheroes who can stand on their own and whose posters don't show off their butts.

Unfortunately, the issue of pre-existing properties comes up... no one wants to make something unless someone else has made it first.

I'm soooooooooooo tired right now. I'm beyond exhausted. I need to sort through my swag. I will post what I did and who I saw. As for the pics, that will come in a day or so when I've got them uploaded and ready to post.

How great would today have been if it had ended with a Penny Can meet-up?  The three of us p*ssing about not getting into a restaurant and  pretending not to be sweltering in the heat and not having anything to talk about.  It would have been AWESOME

Oh, I would have gotten you and Mac into see Metallica who are putting on a private show for contest winners over in the Gaslamp in about 15 minutes (9pm). That would have been something to talk about....well, at least yell over.

Game of Thrones vs. Walking Dead - On The Front Line SDCC 2013

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dju0v_Rj1a0

I love TWD, but come on, this isn't even a horse race. Game of Thrones not only destroys TWD, it destroys pretty much everything else out there in TV land. Every episode of GoT is an epic unto itself. Can't say the same about TWD.

So, here is what I got. I immediately went straight to Campbell's booth to see the new Calendars and the Red Book that were new to Comic Con. Jeff has 3 different calendars this year. One was the Regular Edition, one was The Comic Con Exclusive Edition and one was the Black and White Original Art Edition. I grabbed the Comic Con Exclusive and the Black and White Editions for myself. Passed on the Regular, as well as the Red Book. Grabbed a bunch of Buttons with different 'Hot Babes' that can be found in the Calendars and a few Post Cards as well. He was also selling the Original Art that made up most of the Calendars as well. But the price tag for single pieces were insane as they ranged from 5-7K each. He had other earlier pieces in his portfolio with a bunch of prices, the most expensive piece was around 12k. The most expensive stuff of course was kept behind the table as it should be. Too many things can go wrong leaving those out for people.

As for the rest of the Con, they changed up the floor plan which threw me completely off. For the last 3-4 years, everything was pretty much set. I knew where to go when I wanted to hit certain booths. This year, all that went out the door. I spent most of my time trying to track down those same booths, which meant that I had to do a few laps from one end of the Convention Center to the next and I still didn't get to see it all. I was surprise that the CBS Booth wasn't up this year. Well, I didn't find it anyway.

I did manage to hit the Xbox One and PlayStation booth, which was at the very opposite end, away from where they normally set up. So yeah, got to play Rise and Batman Arkham Origins, which were the only games I really had my eyes on playing there. Scratch that. My biggest game that I wanted to play was Watchdogs and they did have a booth set up. But they didn't have a playable Demo for the public. It was just for the game designers to play for you. Lame. So, I just skipped that. I'm not gonna waste my time watching someone else play. I will write up a review for both Rise and Batman and my perception of the new Xbox One over in the Video Game Section.

Made sure to check out lots of booths like The Walking Dead and Black Sails from Starz. They each had a very cool booth. Kinda like going to Disneyland. The Predator booth looked cool as well. Already talked about their 3D Blu-ray here. Of course I hit Sideshow Collectible booth and a host of other 'toy makers and statues'. I immediately fell in love with the 3 Statues that Sideshow had on display, depicting Campbell's Mary Jane, Gwen Stacy and Spider-Man. No price on them yet, but I'm seriously considering getting both MJ and GS for sure.

I saw a few celebs in and around the Con. There are those that you expect to see at signings and whatnot. It's the ones that you don't expect to run into that throws you off. Had a couple of those myself. One was Chris Connelly, another was Sarah Becker (best known from The Real World Miami, but I knew her before as an Editor at Wildstorm), another was Matt Lanter (90210). But it was his girlfriend that EVERYONE was checking out. Damn, she was hot! Off the top of my head, saw Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Henry Ian Cusick, Milo Ventimiglia, Maggine Q, Shane West, Melinda Clarke, Shane West, Aaron Stanford and Lyndsy Fonseca from Nikita. But the biggest 'get' for me was seeing the gang from Veronica Mars! Yay! Only problem is that Kristen Bell wasn't at the signing. She was at the Panel (I think), but a no show later in the day. Also bummed that Krysten Ritter was a no-show as well. The rest of the cast showed up that included Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring. Francis Capra, Tina Majorino, Ryan Hansen, Enrico Colantoni and show creator Rob Thomas.

It's 5 in the morning right now. Can't remember everything. Going back to bed. I will post more as I remember it..............

I didn't watch the X-files thing, but the news, or so called 'news' about possibilities are all over the place. I no longer see a need for this. I loved the show when it was on. The movies were OK, but I don't hear people just drooling over this, until now.

I won't object to a 3rd film, especially if they refocus on the mythology arc of the show and give the fans answers once and fall and then call it a day. Go out with a swan song. The second film was meh. I can't remember my review, but I think it was just an "average" episode at best.
