Finally getting around to the wrap-up of Comic-Con 2013!
Friday, July 19
On Friday, my ONLY goal was to make it in to Ballroom 20 for the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel. Spoiler: we made it in! But before the main attraction, we sat through some other fun panels like…
Johnny Galecki! He was dressed as Princess Leia’s Bounty Hunter and surprised the audience when he took off the mask while asking the writers panel a question. The following day I saw him just lounging around outside of the Hilton Bayfront. So cool to just randomly have celebrity sightings during Comic-Con.
I stopped watching Bones a season or two ago but the panel was still super entertaining… because David Boreanaz was so over the top and ridiculous. He was making snarky comments, talking over the other members of the panel, basically being an attention whore. UGH. So disappointing.
After introducing the cast, they went straight to questions, which is a little weird but ok. There were 1 or 2 real fan questions until a “plant” asked when we were going to see clips from the pilot. Joss responded that there would be no clips due to ABC/Disney legal issues so instead they were going to show the entire episode. !!!
I don’t know if I was caught up in the moment of watching the pilot for the first time with an entire ballroom room full of other excited/crazed fans but I *really* loved it and I’m crossing my fingers that it does well (it’s up against juggernaut NCIS). There’s a lot of potential with this show to add depth to the current Marvel/Avengers cinematic universe. The cast was solid (the majority of them are pretty green but Joss has a proven track record of finding talented unknowns so I’m not too worried), there are tons of Whedon-esque touches from the pacing of the dialogue to the quick quips, and just enough mythology to get you invested without giving away too much right away. I can’t wait to see it again when it premieres on Tue, 9/24. WATCH IT!
