SDCC: ROXANE GAY JOINS MARVEL FOR "BLACK PANTHER: WORLD OF WAKANDA07/22/16 @ 7:26 pm EST
“Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss returned to Comic-Con on Friday to discuss Season 7 and the challenges of adapting George R. R. Martin’s books and surpassing what has been published so far.
“It’s still ultimately George’s imagination that gave us these characters, that gave us this world,” Benioff pointed out. “Hopefully we’re still living out the spirit of George’s imagination. George’s books will be very different in some respects; hopefully the series and the books will be very surprising to people who are reading or watching.”
The creators also addressed the late premiere for Season 7, which will see the show returning in summer instead of April, due to a delayed start date in filming. “Winter is here, and we’ve got to shoot in places with trees and wait for the leaves to turn,” Benioff noted. “We finish shooting in February,” which means that the rigorous post-production work on the show won’t be finished before summer.
Cast members Liam Cunningham, John Bradley, Nathalie Emmanuel, Conleth Hill, Sophie Turner, Iwan Rheon, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Faye Marsay and Kristian Nairn were also in attendance, along with director Miguel Sapochnik. Nairn received a rapturous welcome from the crowd, who offered an extended chant of “Hodor” in honor of his beloved character.
“I did not expect it to be so crazy, I’m really, really flattered, it’s blown my mind,” Nairn said of the fan response to Hodor’s death. “I was in a hotel in L.A. the other day and all their doorstops said ‘Hodor’ on them. The scene was incredibly written and directed, but I didn’t expect the outpouring of emotion.”
Turner discussed the potentially strained relationship between Sansa and Jon going into Season 7, admitting that she doesn’t think her brother (who’s actually her cousin), is cut out for leadership. “I don’t think she believes Jon is capable of running Winterfell and the north; she doesn’t think he has the intellect, the knowledge, the experience that she has, and I concur,” she laughed. “He has wonderful morals, those Stark morals, [so she thinks] that inevitably he’ll make the good decision, but whether it’s going to benefit anyone is another story.”
The actress also admitted that Sansa may have developed a taste for blood after killing Ramsay: “I have no idea if she’s going to become a real leader or if she’s going to become completely sadistic, but we’ll soon find out…”
A fan also brought up online speculation that Sansa might marry Jon, since they’re not truly siblings, which Turner shot down immediately. “Jon likes redheads, but Jon and Sansa have grown up together, they’re basically siblings,” she insisted with a laugh, before warning the executive producers, “if you make anything happen, I will kill you.”
“It hadn’t occurred to us, but thank you,” Weiss quipped.
Since Bran is currently the only living person who knows that Jon is actually the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, Hempstead Wright weighed in on what his character might do with that knowledge in Season 7. “Bran knows he’s been shown this information for a reason, he might not know exactly why, but it’s obviously imperative he knows this and will spread the word,” the actor said, joking that he envisions the eventual conversation with Jon going something like, “By the way, I’m a tree wizard, and your dad isn’t your dad.”
The actor also recalled his initial reaction to learning the Jon revelation: “I knew about R+L=J and all the theories … it was really cool to be able to read it, let alone have involvement in the scene.” He said the most satisfying aspect was that Bran’s flashbacks weren’t just flashbacks, but an opportunity for the audience to “watch a character react to this rich history of Westeros. It was nice to see it all click together.”
The panel was moderated by “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” creator Rob McElhenney, who revealed that he was chosen to host the panel because, unbeknownst to us, “I’ve shot a scene in every season, but they always cut me out.” McElhenney then presented footage of his “cut scenes,” in which his disgruntled character asked the question that we’ve been wondering for six seasons: “When
is winter coming?”
The panel concluded with a behind the scenes video showing that production is underway on Season 7 — with no new footage, just voiceovers from Season 6 — and a blooper reel that showed star Peter Dinklage struggling with the word “benevolent.” (Via Variety)

SDCC: GABRIEL LUNA IS "AGENTS OF SHIELD'S" GHOST RIDER07/22/16 @ 7:20 pm EST
Marvel Comics has added another celebrated writer and commentator to its roster of creators: Roxane Gay, best known for her 2014 collection of essays, "Bad Feminist." Gay will write "Black Panther: World of Wakanda" alongside current "Black Panther" series writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, himself a best-selling and acclaimed author. The series was first announced Friday afternoon during Marvel's segment of the Diamond Comics Retailer Presentation at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
"Black Panther: World of Wakanda," expected to debut in November, aims to focus on the larger world of the Coates-written "Black Panther" series, with the initial arc starring Ayo and Aneka -- the former Dora Milaje who are now known as The Midnight Angels. The story will serve as something of a prequel, showing how the two went rogue -- and fell in love with each other.
"It's the most bizarre thing I've ever done, and I mean that in the best possible way," Gay told The New York Times. "The opportunity to write black women and queer black women into the Marvel Universe, there's no saying no to that."
Poet Yona Harvey will also contribute to "Black Panther: World of Wakanda," with a 10-page backup story on Zenzi, who incited the riot in "Black Panther" #1. Coates recruited both Harvey and Gay to Marvel, as reported by the New York Times. No artist has yet been announced for "World of Wakanda," but "Genius" artist Afua Richardson illustrated the cover to issue #1. On Twitter, Gay revealed that Alitha E. Martinez will also illustrate covers.
Gay and Harvey are believed to be the first Black women writers to contribute to Marvel Comics. Gay addressed the situation on Twitter, writing, "It doesn't make sense that I am the first, in 2016. But I won't be the last." Gay also disclosed that she'll appear at Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada's Cup O' Joe panel at 3 p.m. Pacific this Saturday at Comic-Con.

SDCC: SIA SADDLES UP FOR 'MY LITTLE PONY' AS ACTRESS AND SONGSTRESS 07/22/16 @ 6:56 pm EST
AMC has set the premiere date and revealed the first trailer for the next season of “The Walking Dead”
The zombie drama’s seventh season will debut Sunday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. The 16-episode season will be split into two parts, with the first eight episodes airing in the fall and the second half debuting in February, 2017.
Comedian Chris Hardwick moderated a panel Friday at Comic-Con featuring the show’s cast and creative team, where the trailer debuted. It shows new villain Negan, but doesn’t hint at who he killed in the season-six finale. It also gives a first look at King Ezekiel, a fan-favorite character of the comic books on which the series is based. Actor Khary Payton will will play Ezekiel.
Star Andrew Lincoln promised that Negan’s victim will be revealed in the season premiere. “It’s a really shitty start to the season” for the characters, Lincoln said, but promised that things will get better for them down the line.
Executive producer Scott Gimple addressed the relationship between Lincoln’s Rick and Danai Gurira’s Michonne, which became one of the most high-profile interracial relationships on TV when the two became romantically involved last season.
“I wasn’t aware that it would have the impact that it did,” Gimple said. He added, “I think one of the things we fantasize about the apocalypse is that all of the things that separate us fall way.”
“Sometimes to change the picture that you usually see on screen can ruffle people, because it’s change,” Gurira said, adding, “I hope and believe that it will help break that barrier and allow more of those portrayals to be expressed.”
Hardwick acknowledged the frustration that was expressed by some fans with the season-six cliffhanger ending, which showed Negan beating one of the show’s main characters to death, but did not reveal which character died — at one point even saying to the Comic-Con crowd, “No one’s ever trying to mess with you; everyone’s doing the best they can.” He asked executive producer Robert Kirkman whether the payoff would be worth it for fans.
“It’s definitely worth the wait,” Kirkman said. “It’s a fantastic premiere to a fantastic season.”
The season-seven debut will be followed by the season premieres of after-show “The Talking Dead,” hosted by Hardwick, at 10 p.m. and “Comic Book Men” at midnight.
AMC will also air a season-preview special, hosted by Hardwick, Aug. 14 at 10 p.m. and a series recap special Oct. 16 at 9 p.m.

SDCC: WATCH THE 'FEAR THE WALKING DEAD' SEASON 2B TRAILER07/22/16 @ 6:49 pm EST
Will Beall is going back into the ocean.
The Gangster Squad
scribe is once again writing Aquaman
, Warner Bros.’ feature project based on the iconic DC Comics character. This time however, he is working off a detailed treatment from filmmaker James Wan, who is attached to direct, and comics author and co-head of DC Films, Geoff Johns.
Jason Momoa barnacled to star as the half-human, half-Atlantean King of the Seven Seas. July 27, 2018 is the release date.
Warners was developing Aquaman
on dual tracks, hiring multiple writers to develop scripts simultaneously. Beall and Kurt Johnstad, a frequent collaborator of Justice League
director Zack Snyder, then a major architect of the DC cinematic universe, were hired in summer 2014. Late last year, when Wan came circling the project, Wan’s Conjuring 2
scribe David Leslie Johnson became another track.
In the meantime, Beall moved off the project and became the writer and exec producer of the Training Day
television pilot, which has been ordered to series by CBS.
Recently, all Aquaman
development tracks were deep six-ed as Wan and Johns focused on getting the story in ship shape. Beall was then rehired to write the script, this time as the only writer. He is working with Wan and Johns.
Joining Momoa in the cast so far are Amber Heard as Aquaman’s mate, Mera, and Willem Dafoe as his advisor, Vulko.

Meanwhile, Nick is out on his own after having rejected his mother's request to jump in the truck as he explores his own journey in a world full of the undead. As for Travis, he vows to remain with son Chris after telling Nick to keep his whereabouts with Chris from Madison.
The biggest question entering the second half of the season is whether or not Daniel survived the fire he set at Celia's, if the group can be reunited and what will come of Flight 462

If you're on the ground at Comic-Con, keep an eye out for random exorcisms in addition to all the creative cosplay.
Fox is staging "surprise" exorcisms in downtown San Diego to promote the network's upcoming reboot of The Exorcist
. The Hollywood Reporter
witnessed the first exorcism of the weekend outside of the Hard Rock hotel across from the Convention Center on Friday morning.
When the exorcism began, no one near the commotion really knew what was happening. A space was cleared on the sidewalk, and two seemingly random Con attendees, a guy and a girl, walked through it. The guy collapsed onto the ground out of nowhere, and he puked while his body was twitching and contorting in alarming ways. His friend freaked out and didn't know what to do. Then, two priests stepped in to save the “possessed” guy in the staged flash exorcism. While it was shocking at first, by the end of the stunt everyone knew it was all for fun and the "possessed" person had been in on the ruse from the very start.
These flash exorcisms will be happening multiple times a day on Friday and Saturday, with different performers for each one. Each of the "possessed" actors are circus performers, so it's truly a sight to see them contorting their bodies. If you're at Comic-Con and want to witness one for yourself, follow @TheExorcistFOX to track where the exorcisms are occurring throughout the weekend.
"I thought it was great," executive produder Jeremy Slater told THR
after the stunt. "I've been coming to Comic-Con as a fan for the last 12 years and every year I say that next year is the year that I'm going to have something here. And this year I do. So I'm just on cloud nine. Every time the train goes by with our logo on it, I have a geek out moment. I didn't sleep a wink last night since our panel is today."
