The Quest Begins….
Good lord, trying to find bootleg versions of Comic-Con footage has become something akin to Dr. Jones’ campaign for the Ark. Or a way to forget the fourth movie….
Anyways, as of right now I’m watching my DVR’d Live footage of Comic Con by G4 and drowning my sorrows in a pint of Ben and Jerry’s “Americone Dream”. I don’t want to gripe cause I (once again) didn’t go this year, but good god, this year’s coverage is AWFUL. With the exception of Alison Haislip and Kevin Periera, it seems like no one is pumped about anything at the show. Not to mention that its production is really shoddy. I’ve so far counted 4 seperate times that there is a countdown to being live, the best one being when poor Olivia Munn was stuck in the middle of a couple hundred awkward nerds. Props to her for completely making an awkward moment even better by completely shutting down a nerd’s pick up line:
O: “What’s your favorite part of Comic-Con so far?”
Nerd: “Right now its you.”
O: awkward silence “I have no idea what to say to that”.
So far Ms. Munn has not been back in the nerd pit. She was however pretty much in love with Thor, I mean Chris Hemsworth, who seems like a pretty cool dude. Aaaannnddd I just remembered how pissed I am that they REFUSE to show the footage for Thor, Captain America, and Green Lantern. Is it that hard to throw the millions of people who can’t make it to the show a bone and upload the stuff for free at least a few days later, sans crappy bootleg quality? I’ve literally waded through a crap ton of awful fan films and one a-hole who posted scenes from Temple of Doom under the title “Thor 2010 Footage OMG Watch it quick before Marvel deletes it!”. Wouldn’t it be less of a hassle for Marvel and Youtube if they would just send a friggin’ OFFICIAL video?
So far all I’ve found is the audio of the Thor trailer, which is here, which apparently exists because of the trailer being shown in 3-D…great. Well, I’ll do my best to put it up as soon as possible, but for now here’s the panel for The Avengers where they revealed the entire cast, which was still pretty cool.
