We had the most amazing weekend what with all the latest updates about the upcoming films, TV series, comics, and games announced at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con! It’s unfortunate that we weren’t able to make it out there this year but perhaps it did save us some time from queueing up to get into the panels too.
However, attending Comic Con has always been in our bucket list and there are just way too many things that we wanted to witness with our own eyes!
Celebrity sighting at Comic Con? You got it. Exclusive FUNKO POP! vinyl figures? Yes, they have it there.
For those who attended the 2014 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), they were also able to attend the exclusive screenings of teaser trailers or pilot episodes for the upcoming movies and series such as “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, “Gotham“ and so on.
Before jealousy gets the best of us, we compiled these most memorable SDCC 2014 moments for you and now we can all be jealous at the attendees together. Check it!
1. Misha Collins in an apron
“So, anyone wants some coffee?”, said Supernatural’s Misha Collins to those who were waiting in the Hall H line for the Supernatural panel. The actor was seen wearing a cute cupcake apron while delivering coffee to people who waited in the queue for long hours. Some lucky fans were able to get his autograph on the coffee cup and take pictures with him too. On top of that, the star spent a great amount of time taking pictures of himself with the cosplayers too!
2. Best Grand Entrance: Robert Downey Jr.
When it comes to making a grand entrance, no one does it better than Robert Downey Jr. who walked into Marvel Studios panel with some sleek dance moves to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough”. The actor also brought a box filled with roses and threw them to audience. It was truly a star-studded panel as his fellow “Avengers” cast (except Scarlett Johansson) also attended the event to discuss their upcoming film, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”!
3. Muscle Showdown: Thor Won!
In terms of size, the Hulk is a gigantic green monster that even Thor wouldn’t take the chance at pissing off. But in real life, the Hulk lost to Thor when Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) compared his biceps to the Hulk’s (played by Mark Ruffalo) biceps during Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” SDCC 2014 panel.
4. Daniel Radcliffe as Spider-Man
Daniel Radcliffe is definitely one of the reasons why we wanted to attend SDCC 2014 because the actor was spotted walking around the showroom floor in his Spider-Man disguise! He even stopped and posed for pictures with some fans who didn’t know better. The British actor previously expressed his desire to play Batman’s Robin and the actor said in an interview with MTV that he has always wanted to attend the comic con. Luckily for him, he was able to attend it this year in conjunction with his new film, Horns.
5. George R.R Martin, The Father of Dragons
Step aside, Khaleesi! The REAL mother of dragons is here…or rather, the father. Reddit user “justbeingfrank” uploaded a selfie of himself with American author George R. R. Martin when he ran into the author at SDCC 2014. Best known for his fantasy novel, “Game of Thrones”, the author fitted his face into a cutout cardboard of Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emily Clarke) and posed for the picture. Looking at this picture, we are not sure if we should be jealous of the lucky fan or worry about Daenerys’ life in the book since George R. R. Martin is known to do drastic things to his characters.
6. Dorito Captain America
Uh oh. It looks like someone has been stalking the Internet! Netizens freaked out a little when the Iron Man’s Robert Downey Jr. jokingly called Captain America’s Chris Evans “Dorito” in an interview. “Dorito Captain America” is a term that was coined by the fans when they compared his shoulder to waist ratio to the shape of a Dorito. But of course, the term has only been used by the fans until Robert Downey Jr. used it during the interview. Iron Man’s watching, you guys.
7. The Hobbit’s Director Peter Jackson Cosplaying
The Hobbit’s director Peter Jackson has pretty much won the Internet when he posted a series of photos of himself cosplaying the Evil Jester at the SDCC 2014. The director wrote on his Facebook page that he had fun walking around while stopping to pose for pictures with oblivious fans. Little did the fans know, they were taking picture with the amazing director who attended the comic con to talk about his latest film. “The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies” at the panel in Hall H.
