SDCC 2015 Saturday Panels Worth Considering

SDCC 2015 Saturday ScheduleSaturday is a big day at Comic-Con and the last full day, so let’s get planning!

The Last Man on Earth (10:00 AM, Indigo Ballroom – Hilton San Diego Bayfront)

Last Man was a really fun new show this year from the mind of Will Forte. He’ll be joined on stage by Kristen Schall, January Jones. and director/executive producer Chris Miller. The show had a great concept and several twists throughout its short season. The main character might have been a little too unlikeable, but I still thought it was fun and will definitely watch next season.

Warner Bros. Presentation (10:30 AM, Hall H)

This is going to be another ‘wait in line all night’ kind of panel for one big reason: Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. You’ll also get to see Hugh Jackman from Pan and get a glimpse at The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but let’s be honest, you’re there for Batman. We haven’t heard or seen much from this movie aside from a tone-piece teaser, but maybe it’s time to start pulling back the curtain. The actors portraying Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, and Lois Lane will all be in attendance.

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Family Feud (12:00 PM, Room 28DE)

A bunch of awesome authors including Brandon Sanderson (The Stormlight Archives, Wheel of Time), Patrick Rothfuss (The Kingkiller Chronicles), Ernest Cline (Ready Player One, Armada), and more face off in a game of geek-centric Family Feud.

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight (1:30 PM, Hall H)

Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and more star in this Tarantino film that looks to me like Reservoir Dogs meets the Western movie.

Legendary Pictures (2:30 PM, Hall H)

The Warcraft movie follows a pedigree of terrible video game movies. However, the few glimpses that we’ve seen have actually looked surprisingly great. Could this be the game that turns the tide… of darkness? (Old school Warcraft nerds will get that.)

The Muppet Show Coming to ABC (3:00 PM, Room 6A)

To promote the upcoming Muppets return to TV, creators of the show AND THE MUPPETS THEMSELVES will be on the panel. That’s right. Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie the Bear, all on stage. Fantastic.

Dark Horse: An Afternoon with Joss Whedon (4:45 PM, Hall H)

Come, nerds, and worship your God!

20th Century Fox (5:45 PM, Hall H)

X:Men: Apocalypse? Deadpool? Probably.

Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment Screening Block (8:00 PM, Hall H)

Much like with the Marvel TV stuff yesterday, I feel obligated to mention this even though I don’t personally care about any of it. Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow. Great. Have a good time. Enjoy the Supergirl train wreck.

Comic-Con Masquerade (8:30 PM, Ballroom 20

The very best in Cosplay. Some of these costumes are insane. Bring your camera or make sure your phone is charged. You’ll take lots of photos.

Quite frankly, Tim is a 17-year-old trapped in a 30-something-year-old’s body. He loves good TV – by which he means something with a good serialized storyline – and movies, and spends many of his nights immersed in a gloriously complex video game. He’s a firm believer that Lost was the greatest show ever made, and that includes the ending. Oh, and Tim is a staunch defender of the Ewoks and their place in the Star Wars canon. You can listen to Tim on the Whatever Makes You Weird podcast, check out his opinions about upcoming movies in our Trailerpark Tuesday segments, and find his reporting about cons and all things nerd-ish on Comic Con Tips.
