20th Century Fox Skipping Hall H At San Diego Comic Con

x-men-apocalypse-panel-comic-con-2015

San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) has become known as one of the biggest events in the comic book music industry. Its the place for debuting trailers and breaking news but recent privacy issues and leaked footage have been taking a tole on the studios presenting. 20th Century Fox will not be presenting this year at Hall H because of concerns over privacy.

This means movies like Wolverine 3 and Assassin’s Creed will not be featured.

20th Century Fox has not pulled out of SDCC completely. They will be participating in smaller events like Trolls, their collaboration with DreamWorks Animation.

The studio has had major sucess with SDCC, it was the medium that helped jump start the Deadpool marketing campaign but leaks of the trailer hit the web shortly after it was presented. The trailer was shown on a Saturday and leaked by Monday. Deadpool went on to gross $760 million worldwide. Another major 20th Century Fox project X-Men also suffered from similar leaked footage and trailers.

      exactly what I was thinking, lol

  • SAMURAI36

    Welp, looks like WB/DC will own SDCC again this year. Cool Beans.

    • Worldmind

      Indeed they will. Hopefully they’ve locked down their movie slate by then.

      • SAMURAI36

        Yeah, I’m hoping for some more DC actor announcements, along with a JLDark reveal.

        We’ll definitely get some SS and WW stuff, and hopefully JL footage.

    • Dave Tomlinson

      Yea, it would be really swell if they made a good movie.

      • SAMURAI36

        You mean, like the two that they’ve already made?

        • Dave Tomlinson

          No, I mean good movies. You know movies with characters who are decent and do things that make sense. Or that are edited in a way to tell a story. Not just Zach Snyder masturbating on the screen for 2+ hours and awful people behaving nonsensically. Sorry if those concepts are foreign.

          • SAMURAI36

            They’re foreign to you, apparently, because that’s precisely what we got.

            I was quite fine with what the characters did, and the story that was told, and (whether you like it or not), so what the majority of the audience.

            I don’t know what “awful people” you’re talking about, and I’m not even gonna bother asking you to clarify. I would suggest watching the film again, in order to truly glean the stuff that clearly went over your head.

          • Dave Tomlinson

            Good people don’t murder other people indiscriminately, which both Batman and Superman do in the movie. But whatever, I’m not going to argue morality.

            Instead I’m going to ask you to very clearly explain to me in one sentence either Lex Luthor’s a. motivations or b. plan. You can pick whichever one you want. The only caveat is you can’t fall back on what you know from the comics. I’m asking you to do this from the movie as presented only.

          • SAMURAI36

            You are a perfect example of what I’m talking about; people going into the movie with their own expectations.

            For one thing, Superman didn’t kill a single person. NO ONE. As for Batman, he didn’t “murder” anyone. Manslaughter is not the same as murder, & either way, he didn’t do it “indiscriminately”, as you say. Not to mention, the people he did kill were A) people who were trying to kill him, & B) based on the people he killed in the original story that the movie was based on.

            As for Lex, I’m not gonna tell you what his motivations were, but I will tell you where to look, which means you have to go watch the movie again.

            The first Senators meeting…. The meeting in his father’s study… The party scene… On the helicopter pad with Superman. It’s all there in the movie. It’s not my fault that you weren’t able to keep up. Nor was it DC’s.

            Perhaps if they had some juvenile jokes & teenage dialogue, you probably would’ve been able to keep up.

          • Dave Tomlinson

            Superman very much DID kill the warlord at the beginning of the movie. Or maybe you think someone can survive being blasted through 2 stone walls at 100 mph. He could have easily disarmed him without killing up. And, considering Batman’s entire philosophy is “I don’t kill even to save my own life, especially with guns, which I hate” it’s kind of hard to rationalize him mowing down random goons with machine guns in his plane.

            I know you won’t tell me Lex’s motivations because he never explains them. He just doesn’t like Superman. Like a little kid. And no, all we get in those scenes you mentioned is him acting weird. He never actually explains his plan. See if he thinks Batman is going to kill Superman, then why does he need to create Doomsday? It makes no logical sense. And then Doomsday would have killed him had Superman not been there to stop him. The movie is the fantasy of a teenager with anger issues. The same people claim they want comics and comic book heroes to be more “adult” REALLY want them to be more wish fulfillment for adolescence.

            This is why I say you need to watch the movie again. In the very next scene, Clark himself specifically stated “I did not kill those men”. Now, the only 2 options here, are A) Clark was lying, or B) You just weren’t paying attention.

            Guess which option I’m going with.

            Oh, & LMAO at “stone walls”. I really hope you don’t think those “buildings” in the middle of the desert in Africa were all that sturdy. Because tribal nomads in the middle of the Sahara are known for their masonry work.

            Did Superman kill that man? Absolutely not. Now, did he hurt him? Most likely. Did he probably go overboard? Probably. But it’s not like he didn’t have a reason, which again, was blatantly explained in the story.

            And, considering Batman’s entire philosophy is “I don’t kill even to save my own life, especially with guns, which I hate” it’s kind of hard to rationalize him mowing down random goons with machine guns in his plane.

            Once again, you didn’t pay attention to the film. WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN, this time, without your expectations (which BTW, I think it’s funny that you attempt to arrest my POV by telling me:

            The only caveat is you can’t fall back on what you know from the comics.

            …Yet, you are guilty of the very same thing. Batman never once stated IN THIS FILM that this (“no killing”) was his motto. In fact, within the story, it was explained precisely the opposite. We learn why he’d dropped that principle, in his discussions/debates with Alfred.

            I’m not saying what he did was “right” (even though I personally didn’t have a problem with it), but that was the entire point of the film. Batman lost his way. Not only his actions with criminals, but his actions with Superman demonstrated that. That was his pathos and his realization, which is why he specifically stated “we will be better…. We have to” at the end of the film.

            See, the problem is, you want a fully realized Superman and Batman at the very start of these films, and DC NEVER promised that. Thus far, these films have been deconstructionist at their best. They are showing us the journey to heroism, instead of the ready-made versions that we have been accustomed to, because we already know their story.

            I know you won’t tell me Lex’s motivations because he never explains them.

            So, in addition to not paying attention to the movie, you’re not paying attention to me, either.

            I already gave you the places to point to, with regards to this. GO WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN. And pay attention this time. I’m betting you fell asleep on those scenes that I mentioned. You can’t even tell me what was said in those scenes.

            He just doesn’t like Superman. Like a little kid. And no, all we get in those scenes you mentioned is him acting weird. He never actually explains his plan. See if he thinks Batman is going to kill Superman, then why does he need to create Doomsday? It makes no logical sense.

            Because, there was this little something that you claimed wasn’t explained in the film, called “THE METAHUMAN THESIS”. DD wasn’t just about Superman. It was about ALL the Meta’s. It’s also the reason he was keeping tabs on ALL the future JL members, not just Superman and Batman. Hence, “the RedCapes are coming”. That’s your first clue; you won’t get any more from me.

            GO WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN.

            And then Doomsday would have killed him had Superman not been there to stop him. The movie is the fantasy of a teenager with anger issues. The same people claim they want comics and comic book heroes to be more “adult” REALLY want them to be more wish fulfillment for adolescence.

            Except, that’s the entire point, but you’re missing it. That was Lex’s hubris. The same way it’s his hubris, when he allies himself with Metallo, or Darkseid in the comics, and it always ends up backfiring on him. This is no different.

            For all of Lex’s (re: EVERY version of Lex) genius, he’s still very myopic. This has been shown numerous times over, and this film is no different.

        If they made good movies, they would just be copying Marvel.

  • jollybrah

    Can’t blame them really, both the Apocalypse and Deadpool trailer leaked pretty bad.

  • WarrenWII

    so Deadpool trailer leaked and the movie ended earning more than $760m, but now they decide not to attend this year.
    Mm…. can anyone explain me the logic of this? lol
