#SDCC: Overheard at San Diego Comic-Con, Day 1
The catch-all for all the off the cuff comments and interesting comments we’ve been hearing in the halls, following on Facebook, and tracking on Twitter.
Fernando Borrego: Only at comic con: bill nye gets a bigger ovation than nick cage
Chris Gore: Saw a guy at Comic Con wearing an NFL cap & called him Faggot! Revenge for the 10,000,000 times I was called FAG in high school. Win!
Bonnie Burton at the i09 panel: Pirates are the new vampire zombies!
paplikaplik: That lady’s trying to fit 200 lbs of Wonder Woman into a 90 lb costume.
mordantkitten: Damned if I haven’t found a way to sleep in line. Hee!
germainlussier: never seen hall h this full or full of females. its like a boy band concert.
ACED Magazine: Zoe Saldana has a
girlcrush on Megan Fox-but doesn’t know why casting decisions are made
by 65-yr-old men who want to see 25 year old girls rather than by looking to input from the younger generation who might want to see something different.
Paul Kupperberg “is 3000 miles away from Artists Alley and thinks the view from here is just fine.”
Geoff Johns, on the Green Lantern live-action movie : “I think the Green Lantern mythology has the potential to be one of
the biggest franchises in the world, superhero or otherwise. It’s as
epic as Star Wars and as deep as Lord of the Rings.
I think it could rival every other superhero out there if explored,
supported and executed right. … I think the success of films like Iron Man and The Dark Knight has shown us that good comics films can rule the screen. … I have immensely high hopes for Green Lantern.”
And finally, a tweet from Mark Evanier: “I’m at the con. Where the hell is everyone? The place is empty.”
