Comment From Jaymie
Here's hoping for some DC news! Maybe even some footage from Batman v Superman???

9:51
ComingSoon.net: Hopefully!

9:51
Comment From Alejandro
Will they release an official hobbit teaser online after the panel?

9:51
Spencer Perry-SHH: Films officially scheduled to appear on the panel are The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Jupiter Ascending. Though Surprises are always a possibility :)

9:53

Comment From Guest
Thank you CS! If only we could be there. But your live-blogs are the next best. Much appreciated.

9:53
ComingSoon.net: You bet!

9:54
ComingSoon.net: One additional note. You guys' comments are coming in so quick, there's no way we'll be able to feature all of them. We will try to answer questions though.

9:55
Comment From Timothy Augello
How deep into production is Batman Vs. Superman at this time?

9:55
Spencer Perry-SHH: They've been shooting about 2 months I believe

9:56
Comment From Ccb
Anyone heard what the new release date for Jupiter Acesending is?

9:56
Spencer Perry-SHH: February 6, 2015

9:56
Comment From Josh
Aside from DC, does anyone think they'll announce anything for Godzilla 2?

9:56
Spencer Perry-SHH: Check back for the Legendary panel later today for that :)

9:56
ComingSoon.net: Looks like Peter Jackson walked the Con in disguise - https://www.facebook.com/Pe...

9:58
Comment From Dominic
Is two months of production enough time to put together something teasery?

9:58
Spencer Perry-SHH: Guardians of the Galaxy did it last year after only 10 days of production, so anything is possible!

9:58
ComingSoon.net: To answer all the questions, Legendary Pictures (who's films are distributed by Universal now) starts at 12:20 p.m. Pacific Time and Marvel Studios starts at 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time.

9:59
Comment From Test
How long is the Marvel panel?

9:59
Spencer Perry-SHH: An hour I blieve

9:59
ComingSoon.net: Having filmed for a certain amount of time does not mean they don't have any footage available. A lot is done before filming usually starts.

10:00
ComingSoon.net: Provided we have Wi-Fi, the plan is to live blog Legendary, Sin City and Marvel Studios still today.

10:01
Comment From CJ
That's weird that the Marvel panel would be an hour. Thought it would be longer.

10:01
ComingSoon.net: They usually cheat and go longer :)

10:02
ComingSoon.net: Here comes Silas, enjoy everyone!

10:02
Silas Lesnick: Hi everyone! We're just a few minutes from the start!

10:02
Comment From Igon
Spencer Perry? I think i remember you and your bad jokes from last year

10:02
Spencer Perry-SHH: The same.

10:03
Silas Lesnick: They're making the usual "no taping" announcements at the moment.

10:04
Comment From Blank
Also, will we get Warcraft here or is that Legendary?

10:04
Spencer Perry-SHH: Legendary

10:04
Silas Lesnick: As they did last year, the curtains on the side are opening, revealing two massive screens on either side of the main screen.

10:04
ComingSoon.net: You guys might break this thing. There's a lot of people watching!

10:05
Silas Lesnick: Wait, it's even BIGGER than last year!

10:05
Silas Lesnick: There are two MORE screens on either side!

10:05
ComingSoon.net: Whoa.

10:05
Silas Lesnick: Moderator Chris Hardwicke has come out (cosplaying as Marty McFly)

10:06
Silas Lesnick: The screens are all showing cityscape

10:06
Silas Lesnick: We're seeing 3D renders of Batman and Superman!

10:07
ComingSoon.net: I wonder if they'll be doing anything for Batman v Superman. :)

10:07
Silas Lesnick: Not actual footage, but pained concept art rendering in 3D

10:07
Silas Lesnick: VERY Frank Miller looking

10:07
Silas Lesnick: It was pretty quick, ending with the Dawn of Justice logo

10:07
Silas Lesnick: Zack Snyder has taken the stage!

10:08
Silas Lesnick: He says he couldn't be happier with the way production is going at the moment

10:08
Silas Lesnick: He says there's something they're going to show!

10:08
Silas Lesnick: "A teeny little thing," he says with a smile

10:08
Silas Lesnick: Be right back!

10:10
Silas Lesnick: Oh, wow that's cool :)

10:10
ComingSoon.net: Here's a pic of the Hall H screens - https://twitter.com/jonniec...

10:10
Silas Lesnick: Batman is standing on a Gotham rooftop in the rain

10:10
Silas Lesnick: His costume isn't what we've seen already. It's big and bulky, like his armor in The Dark Knight Returns

10:10
Silas Lesnick: His eye light up, solid white

10:10
Silas Lesnick: He's moving a tarp, revealing the bat signal

10:11
Silas Lesnick: He turns it on and the camera tracks up to the sky

10:11
Silas Lesnick: Superman is there, hovering in the light

10:11
Silas Lesnick: He doesn't look happy.

10:11
Silas Lesnick: His eyes light up with heat vision as he glares at Batman

10:11
Silas Lesnick: The title come up!

10:11
Silas Lesnick: Here come Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot!

10:12
Silas Lesnick: Unfortunately, that's it, it seems, although they're showing the footage again now...

10:13
Silas Lesnick: Posters are on the monitors now!

10:13
Silas Lesnick: WE can see Wonder Woman!

10:14
Silas Lesnick: I suspect these will be online very shortly, but she looks pretty great. Dark red, armor style costume

10:14
Silas Lesnick: She's carrying a shield and sword

10:14
Silas Lesnick: They're moving immediately into JUPITER ASCENDING with images of outer space filling all the monitors

10:14
Silas Lesnick: Channing Tatum has taken the stage

10:15
Silas Lesnick: Tatum says that he'll walk the floor in a mask. He jokes that it'll be Chewbacca

10:15
ComingSoon.net: Wonder Woman! https://twitter.com/benfrit...

10:16
Silas Lesnick: (I like that Wonder Woman costume a whole lot, personally)

10:17
Silas Lesnick: They're showing off some JUPITER ASCENDING footage, a lengthy montage of footage

10:18
Silas Lesnick: Tatum's charcter introduces himself to Kunis'

10:18
Silas Lesnick: He tells her how crazy it is to assume that mankind is alone in the universe

10:18
Silas Lesnick: 100,000 years ago the human race was seeded on Earthy by an alien race

10:19
Silas Lesnick: Now the rulers of that race want Kunis' Jupiter dead

10:19
Silas Lesnick: She's royalty and doesn't know it

10:19
Silas Lesnick: LOTS of neat special effects footage. This is definitely a visually stunning project

10:20
Silas Lesnick: Kunis' Jupiter is reborn with exactly the same genetic structure from time to time. That's why she's meant to rule.

10:20

10:20
ComingSoon.net: Hopefully we'll get something official from the studio shortly.

10:20
Silas Lesnick: A neat fight between Tatum and a big, winged monster. Kinda like a winged Gorn from STAR TREK

10:20
Silas Lesnick: "I have more in common with a dog than with you," says Tatum

10:20
Silas Lesnick: "I love dogs," says Kunis. "I've always loved dogs."

10:21
Silas Lesnick: The logo comes up and the crowd seems pretty happy with it.

10:21
Silas Lesnick: Tatum is leaving the stage. It doesn't look like WB is doing fan questions.

10:21
Silas Lesnick: They're moving directly into...

10:21
Silas Lesnick: MAD MAX!

10:22
Silas Lesnick: Dust clouds have filled the monitors

10:22
Silas Lesnick: The logo is appearing on the all the screens

10:22
ComingSoon.net: They're flying through these for a 2 hour presentation. This is interesting.

10:22
Silas Lesnick: "Fire. Blood. Oil." reads the tagline

10:23
Silas Lesnick: Charlize Theron has sent a video greeting. She can't be here because she's filming something in South Africa

10:23
Silas Lesnick: She's recalling her involvement with the project and how long it has taken to reach the screen

10:23
Silas Lesnick: "The idea of working with a filmmaker like George and attempting to reimagine this world was just an [amazing opportunity"

10:24
Silas Lesnick: They're doing a video recap of the franchise, showing off scenes of the three previous MAD MAX films

10:24
EDouglasCS: Hey, everyone! I'm not in Hall H but I think they're going to dedicate most of the panel to The Hobbit. Peter Jackson is a big fan of Comic-Con and they probably have a lot of the cast here.

10:25
EDouglasCS: Also, I almost guarantee they'll show or do something for Warcraft in the Legendary panel. I innocently asked Duncan if I'd see him at Comic-Con and he said he couldn't tell me :)

10:25
Silas Lesnick: Maybe, Ed. But it might also be that they've got so many surprises they have to rush through to fit them all in two hours :)

10:25
EDouglasCS: Well they can't fit the entire third chapter of the Hobbit into 90 minutes so that's not happening. :)

10:25
Silas Lesnick: Ha, the Mad Max footage just transitioned into footage from the new film!

10:26
Silas Lesnick: An incredible tracking shot, looking down a canyon, following a length of 20 or 30 MAD MAX vehicles

10:26
Silas Lesnick: George Miller has come on stage!

10:26
Silas Lesnick: He said that the story for the new film was like an imaginary friend.

10:26
Silas Lesnick: It popped into his head and wouldn't leave

10:27
Silas Lesnick: He says chase scenes are the "purest cinema" so he wanted to make a movie that was one giant chase scene!

10:28
Silas Lesnick: He's really proud of his cast and says Tom Hardy will blow people away with his performance

10:29
Silas Lesnick: This is Miller's first comic-Con and he's taking a picture on his phone to send his wife

10:30
Silas Lesnick: Miller boarded the film like one big comic-book before the screenplay came together!

10:30
Silas Lesnick: "People only speak when they have to," he says, saying that words aren't terribly important to FURY ROAD

10:30
Silas Lesnick: Miller will be answering fan questions in just a moment

10:31
ComingSoon.net: Official version you guys and gals! https://pbs.twimg.com/media...

10:32
Silas Lesnick: Miller says that the new film offers him the chance to return to the simple allegory of the original film

10:33
Silas Lesnick: He says he genuinely believed he would never make another MAD MAX film up until just a few years ago

10:34
Silas Lesnick: He said all the vehicles are based on what would actually exist if the world fell into chaos and we jumped ahead 45 years

10:34
Silas Lesnick: So the key vehicles are the most rugged that exist today

10:35
Silas Lesnick: A fan just asked Miller if his additional years are influencing FURY ROAD in a way that they wouldn't to a younger man

10:35
Silas Lesnick: He says that he's not entirely sure, but that he hopes so

10:35
Comment From Koda
No Batman Poster?

10:35
Silas Lesnick: The Batman poster they showed was the same shot we saw of him with the Batmobile

10:36
Silas Lesnick: Same for Superman and that flying poster we've already seen

10:36
EDouglasCS: Silas, anything about Fantastic Four? Joke, joke...

10:36
Silas Lesnick: BTW, the flying Superman poster actually looks like it's from the moment in the teaser, minus the bat signal in the background

10:36
Silas Lesnick: Here comes FURY ROAD footage!

10:37
Silas Lesnick: It opens on a cliff face. Max is standing, out of focus, at the edge next to his car

10:37
Silas Lesnick: A two-headed lizard scurries away in the foreground

10:38
Silas Lesnick: "My name is Max," says his voiceover. "My world is fire. And blood."

10:38
Silas Lesnick: The cinematography is incredible. The images are clear and pristine, but the subjects are suitably post-apocalyptic

10:39
Silas Lesnick: There's a great balance between the beauty of the desert and the destruction that has befallen the world

10:39
Silas Lesnick: Lots of footage of cars, motorcycles over a song that I haven't quite placed yet

10:40
Silas Lesnick: Tornados in the desert and a chase through them!

10:41
Silas Lesnick: Hoult's character is driving through one of the tornados, pursued by a number of vehicles. Some of them are swept into the sky.

10:41
Silas Lesnick: Fire is everywhere. Bodies go flying.

10:42
Silas Lesnick: "The world belongs to the Mad," reads the tagline

10:42
Silas Lesnick: This is a big, big movie. The montage of footage keeps going with some incredible visuals.

10:42
Silas Lesnick: MAD MAX fans are in for a BIG treat. The applause is just as big as the BvS teaser

10:43
Silas Lesnick: Miller is talking about Theron's character now, Furiosa

10:43
Silas Lesnick: She's the boss of a war rig, moving across the wasteland.

10:43
Silas Lesnick: Max winds up getting pulled into their story, but his character largely just wants to be left alone

10:44
Comment From Zaid
Any other suprises expected in the panel? Or just Hobbit then its done?

10:44
Silas Lesnick: If they were expected, they wouldn't be surprises :) But I'd bet on it!

10:44
Silas Lesnick: We're not even halfway done yet!

10:44
EDouglasCS: Silas, are they going to do an audience Q n A with George Miller? Cause that's 15 minutes right there.

10:45
EDouglasCS: Plus I expect them to give a lot of Q n A time for The Hobbit

10:45
Comment From Dylan
Do you think we should expect more Batman V. Superman/DC news?

10:45
Silas Lesnick: Yep, he's doing one right now. He's talking about how having an increased budget has changed the filmmaking

10:46
EDouglasCS: I would think they would have said something after the Batman v Superman teaser.

10:46
EDouglasCS: Thanks, Silas!

10:47
Silas Lesnick: A fan is asking now about the MAD MAX continuity

10:47
Silas Lesnick: Miller says that's closer in tone to ROAD WARRIOR, but hasn't mentioned yet where it takes place exactly

10:48
Silas Lesnick: Miller is about to sit down and start mixing the score

10:49
Silas Lesnick: Hugh Keays-Byrne, who played Toecutter in Mad Max, plays a villain in FURY ROAD

10:50
Silas Lesnick: Miller made him wear a mask (a neat metal skeleton-looking one) so people wouldn't get confused

10:50
Silas Lesnick: That's it for FURY ROAD, but they're teasing more surprises now...

10:50
Silas Lesnick: Here comes THE HOBBIT!

10:50
Silas Lesnick: Illustrations of the characters are filling the screens

10:50
ComingSoon.net: The Hobbit panel will be in three parts.

10:51
Silas Lesnick: Here comes a new trailer!

10:51
ComingSoon.net: I'm kidding people! Haha.

10:52
Silas Lesnick: Actually, not a trailer. It's a montage of scenes from all Jackson's Middle-earth films

10:53
Comment From Bnightwing
How long is this panel?

10:53
Silas Lesnick: it ends at 12pst, so we've got more than another hour to go!

10:54
Silas Lesnick: Ha! Stephen Colbert is on the screen, reporting from THE HOBBIT set!

10:54
ComingSoon.net: Like I said, three parts. 15 minutes each part, with breaks in between :)

10:54
Silas Lesnick: He's filming behind the scenes of Laketown

10:54
Silas Lesnick: Steven Colbert has taken over as moderator!

10:55
Silas Lesnick: He's dressed in a Laketown costume with an eye patch!

10:55
Silas Lesnick: He's got a Laketown kid with him

10:55
Silas Lesnick: "Go tell the master of Laketown that THE HOBBIT panel is about to begin," he whispers to the boy, who runs off

10:56
Silas Lesnick: He's mighty happy to be here, saying he wants to send a video to his 13 year old self

10:56
Silas Lesnick: He jokingly referred to the new film as THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE FOR SIX MOVIES

10:57
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is geeing out about how closely he followed Jackson's LotR trilogy nearly two decades ago

10:57
Silas Lesnick: He said he finally started to get excited that people might stop rolling their eyes when he mentioned Middle-Earth

10:58
Silas Lesnick: He says his only problem with LotR is that, "with a running time of 11 1/2 hours, they were too. Damn. Short."

10:58
Silas Lesnick: He's saying that the true hero of the films is his cameo character, the Laketown spy.

10:59
EDouglasCS: I guess that's how they're going to fill the time... with Stephen Colbert's stand-up act... :)

10:59
Silas Lesnick: THey're about to show a deleted sequence, featuring another Laketown spy, played by Peter Jackson

11:00
Silas Lesnick: Colbert's character knocks on a door, sending a chain of coded messages, including Jackson popping up out of a barrel and going, "Ka-Kaw!"

11:00
Silas Lesnick: Ha, it's now turned into a gag reel from ALL the films!

11:01
Silas Lesnick: In one scene, Elrond pulls down a hood to reveal THE MATRIX sunglasses and does his scene as Mr. Smith!

11:01
Silas Lesnick: Ian McKellan dancing in his underwear in full Gandalf beard!

11:01
Silas Lesnick: Lots of silly flubs and practical jokes. There are some amazing moments here

11:02
Silas Lesnick: There's a bit in helms deep where Gandalf sees a lone spear propped against a door to protect from the cave troll...

11:03
Silas Lesnick: "What the f-- is this?" he shouts. "Typical elf work!"

11:03
Silas Lesnick: "Orcs!" he says in another clip. "And so far from Orcland!"

11:04
Comment From Adorhelm
That was in Moria

11:04
Silas Lesnick: You're absolutely right on that. My mistake!

11:05
Silas Lesnick: There's a ton of McKellen flubs, but he seems to stay in character even when he forgets his lines, making for some hilarious bits

11:05
Silas Lesnick: In the "Riddles in the Dark" scene, Freeman slips and falls

11:05
Silas Lesnick: "Are you alright, Precious," Serkis asks him, still in Gollum mode.

11:06
Silas Lesnick: "It's only my pride," she sighs.

11:06
Silas Lesnick: *he

11:07
Silas Lesnick: They haven't said anything about it yet, but I'm guessing this is going to be included on the massive six-film set that Jackson has teased in the past.

11:07
Silas Lesnick: Jackson and his cast are taking the stage!

11:07
Silas Lesnick: Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lily...

11:08
Silas Lesnick: Benedict Cumberbatch, Philippa Boyd...

11:08
Silas Lesnick: Sorry, Phillippa Boyens

11:08
ComingSoon.net: I'm guessing we'll see Evangeline tonight as well.

11:08
Silas Lesnick: Luke Evans...

11:09
Silas Lesnick: Lee Pace...

11:09
Silas Lesnick: Jackson's talking about his new tech, saying that, in many ways, he's still shooting

11:10
Silas Lesnick: Cate Blanchett, too!

11:11
ComingSoon.net: Panel photo - https://twitter.com/wbpictu...

11:11
Silas Lesnick: Unfortunately, some of the key members like McKellen and Armitage are shooting so couldn't attend

11:11
Silas Lesnick: Jackson is reflecting on his long road through Middle-earth

11:11
Silas Lesnick: The original plan was to shoot THE HOBBIT as a single film for Miramax back in 1995

11:12
Silas Lesnick: If it was success, he would have done two LotR films

11:12
Silas Lesnick: Colbert says that, because THE HOBBIT is three movies, he feels Jackson owes him six more LotR movies

11:12
Silas Lesnick: "If Warner can find a way to do that," Jackson laughs

11:13
Silas Lesnick: Orlando Bloom is there, too. I missed him

11:13
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is asking about playing elves

11:13
Silas Lesnick: Blanchett says she was typecast

11:14
Silas Lesnick: She says she had thought her time in Middle-Earth was over.

11:14
Silas Lesnick: "You and me both," says Bloom

11:14
Silas Lesnick: Graham McTavish is the last cast member I missed

11:15
Silas Lesnick: He says it's not really a spoiler since we've all read the books, but Jackson says he's excited at the people he gets to kill in this one

11:16
Silas Lesnick: His hope for THE HOBBIT trilogy is that the tone will transition through the films to match the tone of LotR by the end of BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES

11:16
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is asking what Boyens and Jackson would add to LotR if he could

11:17
Silas Lesnick: Boyens is talking about Tom Bombadil, but says that he's probably something best left to a future generation of filmmakers

11:17
Silas Lesnick: Apparently Cate Blanchett's name was on Jackson's list for Galadriel as far back as 1995 when she was a virtual unknown

11:18
Silas Lesnick: Cumberbatch says that it's much easier to do motion capture than to act in response to motion capture

11:19
Silas Lesnick: When you're in a mo-cap suit, you can go all-out but it's much harder to pretend something is there that isn't

11:20
Silas Lesnick: McTavis says he believes the dwarfs journey should be to find a female dwarf

11:20
Silas Lesnick: Evans is talking about his skill with a bow, which began to develop long before THE HOBBIT

11:20
Silas Lesnick: His training for the films, though, added a whole lot

11:21
Silas Lesnick: Colbert says that Elves are "the ninjas of Middle-Earth"

11:21
Silas Lesnick: He asks if we'll get to see Galadriel enter the battle

11:21
Silas Lesnick: she says that she played Bard in a school production and fought there

11:22
Silas Lesnick: "We do get to see Galadriel 'losing it a bit' in this movie," says Jackson

11:22
Silas Lesnick: "Losing her s--t?" she laughs. "Elven s--t."

11:22
Silas Lesnick: "I'm sure it sparkles," says Colbert

11:22
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is taunting Boyens because he beat her at Middle-Earth trivia

11:23
Silas Lesnick: "Your wife came up to me later and said, 'this is the greatest night of his life,'" she laughs

11:23
Silas Lesnick: "I was training all my life for a race I didn't know I was running," laughs Colbert.

11:23
Silas Lesnick: "I think it was a closer match than you remember," smiles Boyens

11:24
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is reciting Tolkien poetry right now. He REALLY knows his stuff.

11:24
Silas Lesnick: "Normally winner are modest, aren't they?" Jackson laughs

11:25
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is talking about Elven classes

11:25
Silas Lesnick: He's jokingly referring to Tauriel as a "trash elf"

11:26
Silas Lesnick: Colbert's wife and kids were extras in the film, too

11:26
Silas Lesnick: He says he loves New Zealand because "no bears"

11:28
Silas Lesnick: Jackson makes it sound like the Hobbit portion will be wrapping in just a few minutes. That means we've still got half an hour. I believe the only other confirmed film is INTO THE STORM. I'm betting some special news at the end.

11:30
Silas Lesnick: Serkis is talking about meeting Jackson for the first time back in 1999

11:30
Silas Lesnick: The technology had to be built around Serkis' talent

11:30
EDouglasCS: Oh, right... Into the Storm. That comes out in a couple weeks (and they screened it on Weds) so they'll probably want to push that.

11:30
Silas Lesnick: (But remember that, last year, the BvS news was at the very, very end)

11:31
Silas Lesnick: Actually, I'm wrong. INTO THE STORM wasn't announced. I'm not entirely sure what's next

11:31
EDouglasCS: Silas, that's the big surprise! :)

11:32
Comment From Kim
Jupiter Ascending maybe? or have they done that already?

11:32
EDouglasCS: Done... very short segment.

11:34
Silas Lesnick: Colbert is asking Jackson if he can see the effect of LotR in other filmmaker's projects

11:34
Silas Lesnick: He says that he can at time, but it gives him nothing but pride

11:34
Silas Lesnick: They're about to show something from BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES

11:34
Silas Lesnick: It's the new teaser trailer!

11:35
EDouglasCS: My guess is that the teaser will be released next week with Guardians as it's the last really big movie of the summer. (or for TMNT latest)

11:36
ComingSoon.net: Probably with Into the Storm actually.

11:38
Silas Lesnick: Set to a somber musical version of Tolkien's "The Walking Song," the teaser is all about building the intensity of this giant, giant battle

11:38
Silas Lesnick: We see all the characters preparing for battle. Troops of Orcs, Elven warriors, etc

11:38
Silas Lesnick: At the end, Thorin asks Bilbo to stand with him one last time

11:39
Silas Lesnick: Blanchett just mentioned that she didn't wear underwear as Galadriel because "elves don't wear underwear".

11:39
Silas Lesnick: "Maybe that was too much sharing," she laughs

11:39
Silas Lesnick: "I think you buried the lede there," Colbert quips

11:40
