While the schedule for the first two days may have appeared to be loaded the Saturday lineup is where all the big boys stake their claim. With Green Lantern, Captain America, Thor, Harry Potter and Cowboys and Aliens there should be plenty of nerd love going around.
– Creator Josh Schwartz and starts Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski and Adam Baldwin share about the upcoming fourth season. Hopefully they will talk about the awesome news that Dolph Lundgren will appear in the season premiere.
Family Guy (11:00-11:45)
– Seth MacFarlane, Seth Green, Alex Bornstein and more will be there to talk about anything and everything Family Guy including a few clips from the upcoming third Star Wars special.
Warner Bros. Green Lantern/Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows/Sucker Punch (11:45-1:15)
– Warner starts the day off large by blowing the lid off of next summer’s Green Lantern film and the final two installments of the Harry Potter franchise. Zack Snyder will be there to discuss his Watchmen follow up Sucker Punch which tells the story of a group of girls that escape their dark reality with their imaginations which will take them through different fantastical realms.
– Good news everyone! Futurama is back and judging from the first few episodes it is as awesome as ever. Cast and crew talk about the resurrection of the fan favorite and what to expect from the rest of the new episodes.
Let Me In (1:30-2:30)
– Director Matt Reeves and cast discuss the upcoming remake of the critically loved Swedish movie Let The Right One In.
– One of the best new comedies of last year (right behind Modern Family) gets on the Comic Con panel. Joel McHale, Chevy Chase and the rest of the cast will be on hand to tell people what to expect from the comedy’s sophomore season.
– Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson and John Noble will be joined by producers to discuss this fall’s third season of the best sci-fi show on television.
Resident Evil: Afterlife (4:00-4:45)
– Star Milla Jovovich and director Paul WS Anderson will talk about the fourth (wow) movie in the Resident Evil franchise. Since the film was shot in 3D using the same process as Avatar I am sure a lot will be spoken on that.
Cowboys and Aliens and Paul (4:45-5:45)
– Superbad director Greg Mottola and stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Bill Hader, Seth Rogen and Sigourney Weaver will be on panel to talk about the film Paul which sees Pegg and Frost as geeks on a pilgrimage to Comic Con only to meet up with an alien in the desert. God I can’t wait….this is Pegg and Frost first movie since Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
– John Favreau discusses his follow up to Iron Man 2 about an alien threat that takes place in the old west.
Attack of the Show (5:00-6:00)
– Kevin Pereira, Olivia Munn, Blair Butler (yay) and more will lead an interactive Comic Con panel. I am going out on a limb and say that Munn will not be on AOTS this time next year. She is doing part time work on The Daily Show and movies and hell she is barely there now anyway.
Lost But Not Forgotten (6:00-7:00)
– Authors of the upcoming Lost Encyclopedia will talk about the history of the show and the finale. And by the way the finale was awesome. Just because some folks had trouble understanding it isn’t the shows’ creators problem.
Marvel Studios: Captain America and Thor (6:00-7:00)
– Well here it is. The big daddy. While I am excited to see some Green Lantern footage this is what is going to make Comic Con on Saturday. Kevin Feige will talk about two of the biggest movies of 2011 and hopefully new pictures and footage.
Kevin Smith (7:15-8:45)
– I am pretty sure that this will be a kid friendly discussion involving absolutely no swear words or talk of titties. I could listen to Smith talk for hours on end.
Kevin Smith Presents Cop Out In “Maximum Movie Mode”
– It’s a Kevin Smith twofer as the director presents his Bruce Willis/Tracy Morgan comedy in “Maximum Movie Mode. MMM is a cool concept done on Warner Bros. Blu-Rays where the director gives commentary in split screen while the movie is playing while showing storyboards and behind the scenes footage simultaneously.
And guess what? That’s just the highlights of Saturday’s schedule. I sh** you not. If you want to check out the full-on big daddy schedule you can take a look here
