Iron Man, Black Widow, and Hollywood pushes south for San Diego
A semi-deep thought re: San Diego: I can’t be the first person to make this observation, but if they keep spending more and more time promoting movies and TV shows, regardless of whether they have anything to do with comics or not, we’re going to have to start calling it the San Diego Comic Cannes.
Lord knows it’s how everybody else seems to be treating it, including this week’s Entertainment Weekly. The coverage is promoting it like the major film festival it is, only without all of those French people.
We’re even going to have our own geek version of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Sure, Angelina has Lara Croft and might be there pitching Salt, and Brad Pitt has Inglorious Basterds coming out next month, but they’re nothing compared to the new power couple of Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool and Green Lantern) and Scarlett Johansson (as the deadly Black Widow, which is a cue to run that picture.)
Last year everybody was psyched about WATCHMEN and STAR TREK. It will be interesting to see what sort of displays and 'surprise guests' will be popping up in SD this time.I think a life-size BLACK WIDOW figure would be realllllly popular! :-)What?! No mention of the GREEN HORNET??
