Comic-Con was psychotic, exhausting and wonderful. We're sorry if you got turned away from our packed io9 panel on "science fiction that can change your life," but we've summarized it to mollify you. More importantly, we've broken down our coverage from Comic-Con into bite-sized, easily-navigated chunks below. Find out what we discovered about everything from the upcoming Watchmen and Terminator movies, to Marvel's most obscure new comic book and what's next for Dr. Horrible.
Want to know about all the exclusive clips we saw of upcoming movies scheduled for next year, plus pore over interviews we did with their directors and stars? Learn more about what to expect from The Day the Earth Stood Still, Terminator 4: Salvation, Watchmen, Tr2n, and Wolverine.
One of our coolest discoveries at Comic-Con was that there was a Bryan Singer-helmed Battlestar Galactica reboot in the works back in 2001, which got derailed in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in the United States. After we posted about that, we got an email from Tom Desanto, exec producer of that suppressed show, who sent us images of the cylons they had created for the 2001 show, which look pretty awesome. We also got a sneak peek at the next 10 episodes of the show, which apparently include a lot of firepower. We also got some face-time with show creator David Eick, and asked James "Baltar" Callas about his leadership secrets.
We got a little hopped up on the reboot of GI Joe, whose dark, near-future TV series Resolute will re-introduce audiences to the super-soldier character of yore. Apparently the budget for the GI Joe flick is bigger than the one for the first Transformers movie.
We got some amazing exclusive interviews, including with the new showrunner for Doctor Who, Steven Moffat. And there were also some sneak looks at the upcoming Who X-mas special from Russel T. Davies.
And we adored hanging out with Matthew Fox, (Jack from Lost), as well as the recruiters at the Dharma Initiative booth.
Plus, we spilled the beans on what's next for Heroes.
In the world of comics, there are new retro developments in the Superman comic, and a really big announcement about a new writer on Batman (yes, it's Neil Gaiman — we are not kidding, mega-fans). You can expect a massive Spider-Man revamp from Marvel, as well as a book based on a Philip K. Dick short story. You can see our full coverage of every single comic book revelation at Comic-Con here.
Probably the coolest upcoming TV show making its way around Comic-Con was Dollhouse, from the brain of Joss Whedon, who also had a special announcement about his web series Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog. I know it's kind of mean, but we made fun of Knight Rider after hearing way too much about KITT.
Meeting the cast of Fringe, along with show creator JJ Abrams, charmed our socks off and made us a lot less skeptical about this mytho-scifi show about a fearless intelligence agent and her mad scientist sidekicks. We were also pretty excited about everything Stargate, and everything Clone Wars.
And of course, there were a lot of frakkin toys, and we've got the pictures to prove it.
