Morgon Spurlock is best known for his documentary “Super Size Me”, a movie about eating McDonalds fast food for 30 days straight and how it affects your body. This time around he is back to bring you the nitty gritty of the popular San Diego Comic-Con.
I was granted exclusive access to the red carpet premiere of “Comic Con Episode IV A Fans Hope” and it was unexpectedly star studded with well known industry names such as, Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead series creator), Stan Lee (Marvel), Joss Whedon (director of the upcoming The Avengers movie), and Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson, in the Avengers). In attendance were some of the stars of the movie such as Holly Conrad, and Bioware Community Manager Jessica Merizan.
Watch the video as I try to get my Red Carpet swag on, with special guest correspondents Jerry Amsterdam and Joel.

I should feel blessed to be close to such major events that happen in and around the video game industry. What most people don’t know is that the San Diego Comic-Con is a major hub for announcements and reveals. Most people think this is just a nerd convention where some overweight stereotype dresses up in a costume in the middle of the southern California summer. They are wrong my friends.
Comic-Con has something for everyone. Video Game wise, Capcom announced Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Naughty Dog and Sony brought the cast of Uncharted 3 to discuss the game, Batman: Arkham City was being promoted everywhere during the convention, and last but not the least, Hideo Kojima himself making his 3rd appearance to promote the upcoming HD re-release of his famous games.
Over at the live chat I realized that a lot of our members like to browse the occasional Cosplay gallery here and there once SDCC starts so why not give them a link to the gallery to end all galleries? You’ll have lots of fun seeing some veeeeeeeery good cosplay and some bad, bad efforts as SDCC starts to slow down until the innevitable “everything must go as it’s more expensive for us to take our stock back with us!” sales.
Developer LightBox released a brand new Starhawk Trailer captured from the Opening cutscene of the game. The new trailer shows off some of the story behind Starhawk and the plot gamers will be taking part in. Enjoy…
