SDCC 2015: Sunday Recap – Heroes Reborn, and the end of SDCC 2015

The final day of Comic-Con came up quickly.  Sunday is always a strange day.  I personally feel both a sense of sadness, but also a sense of relief.  San Diego Comic-Con specifically is very tiring, due to how crowded it gets.  But that doesn’t take away how fun it is either.  But Sunday just has that weird emotionally polar feel to it.  But enough about that, let’s get into what we did on Sunday.

Following Joss Whedon’s panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday was the 20th Century Fox panel. It was not announced ahead of time which movies this panel would feature, as there were several possibilities, but one could make an educated guess. It turned out that the 20th Century Fox panel included Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Victor Frankenstein, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and X-Men: Apocalypse! Violet provides the recap for this one.

After spending most of the day (and all night) in line on Friday, it was finally time for the big day at San Diego Comic-Con – Saturday! The day started off with the Warner Bros. Presentation panel, featuring Man from U.N.C.L.E., Pan, a surprise appearance by director David Ayer and the cast of Suicide Squad, and Batman v. Superman!

As mentioned in our Friday recap of San Diego Comic-Con, it was a bit different for us than what we’re used to, because we weren’t in Hall H! So our pictures from Friday are mainly cosplay, but also include the Assassin’s Creed show, the Masters of the Web panel, and waiting in the Saturday NDL (“Next Day Line”) for Hall H out on the island. Photos are by guest writer/photographer David DeMesquita, and also by Violet.

SDCC 2015: Friday Recap

by Josh

SDCC 2015 Friday

So after our great Thursday at Comic-Con, our group had a big dilemma to deal with–how would we spend our Friday? Thursday was tough to get into in the sense of having to wait several hours on Wednesday night for wristbands, but come Thursday morning, people were still able to get in line with C wristbands. But Saturday was the crown jewel of Hall H, so it was guaranteed to be a whole lot crazier than Thursday. So crazy that we might have to give up our Friday, considering how crazy the line already was for Friday.

SDCC 2015 Thursday

You may have seen our Thursday recap of San Diego Comic-Con 2015, which we split into 2 parts.

Below, you will find our Thursday photo gallery. Panel photos were taken by guest writer/photographer David DeMesquita, all photos others by Violet.

SDCC 2015, Preview Night

Today is the day!  On Wednesday, July 8, Violet, Davey, Tamara and I loaded up the car and made our way down to San Diego. The car was packed, and we were excited to be on our way.  It was around 12:30pm by the time we left. Traffic wasn’t too bad other than a small patch about half way down the 5 South. After a couple of wrong turns and detours around traffic, we made it to the hotel for check in a little before 3:00pm.

SDCC 2014, Hall H line

Yesterday, CCI posted its guidelines for lining up for Hall H, which was basically the same information they provide every year about what you can and can’t bring into line with you, and where you can use the restroom in the middle of the night. Today, CCI posted its policy regarding the Hall H “Toucan Tracker” wristbands — and it seems to be quite a bit different than last year.
