Harleypalooza 2013 During San Diego Comic-Con!

I came across this while lurking about Cosplay.com. If you plan on attending Comic-Con as Harley Quinn you might want to check this out. If you have questions please be sure to direct them to the people in charge of the event!

Harleypalooza is an annual tradition started by Elise Archer in which the many Harley Quinn cosplayers (as well as their Puddins, Reds, kitties and Batbrains) who attend SDCC gather together in a group for pictures, laughter and general fan geekiness! Last year we had a large photoshoot, the “running of the Harleys” and crashed the Batmobiles location for some fun. In previous years we have participated in protests and been graced with Paul Dini’s amazing presence!

Please, invite all Harleys, Jokers, Poison Ivys and any other Bats and Rogues you can think of who will be attending SDCC!

According to Facebook Event Page, the group has normally gathered on Saturday but they’re open to suggestions. I’m sure as it gets closer to the event they’ll have a better idea of the time and place. The photo is done outside the convention though that way even those without a badge can take part! Of course all versions of Harley are welcome. To learn more be sure to check out the Facebook page!

‘Man of Steel’ Prequel Comic – Reveals More Kryptonians

During Walmart’s screening presale on May 18th, to lucky people who purchased tickets were given a Man of Steel prequel comic. The comic is now online and can be viewed HERE. But, be warned…there are spoilers in those comic cells. And even though I’m pretty certain we won’t see much, if any of, Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) in the upcoming film, this gives us a little glimpse into a possible sequel to the film. Check out some of the the comic pages below, see the full comic HERE, and again You Have Been Warned of Possible Spoilers!!

If you’re a fan of DC, the writing of David S. Goyer, and the direction of Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Sucker Punch), then I think you will be in for a treat with Man of Steel. The recent Batman films have set a new bar in the world of DC comic movies. As long as they can maintain that type of dark and detailed story telling, we will all be happy film goers.

Check out the trailer below for “Fate of your Planet” to see some of the correlation between the Prequel Comic and Man of Steel. The shots are edited for a quick view, but you can easily see the skeletal remains and the ship of Kara Zor-El.

 

Jamie Foxx And The Amazing Spider-Man Sequel Are Heading To Comic-Con

According to MovieTalk on Yahoo!, Jamie Foxx (and most likely many more cast members) will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con this summer to promote the next Amazing Spider-Man movie.

“Now I’m just waiting to get to Comic-Con and see how people respond to it,” Foxx said, referring to the big event in San Diego from July 17-21. “[Director] Marc Webb is a genius and Amy Pascal and everybody at Sony have just be so gracious to allow me to have this opportunity. So it’s cool.”

If you’ve been hiding under a rock or getting confused with all the casting news out there for various movies, Jamie Foxx is playing Electro in the sequel. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise since superhero movies pretty much own Comic-Con, especially Hall H. When it comes to Spider-Man, who could forget when Andrew Garfield came out dressed like this:

I expect Jamie to bring some high energy to the panel. He strikes me as someone who could be amazed at the energy and craziness of Hall H and feed off of it. So, are you ready to get in line?

UPDATE 5/29:
Latino Review has info stating that the Spider-Man panel will be on Friday, July 19th and will be part of the Sony Pictures Hall H panel.
