Comic-Con 2017: Day One

Posted on July 21, 2017 at 3:26 pm

Yesterday’s first panel was one that has become an annual highlight: the composers of scores for movie superheroes.  Ray Costa moderated a conversation with Mark Isham (the upcoming “Cloak & Dagger”),  Brian Tyler (“The Mummy,” “Power Rangers”), David Russo (“Gotham”), and Ludwig Göransson (the eagerly anticipated “Black Panther”).  I interviewed Stephen Lane from The Prop Store about his upcoming auction of movie treasures including Jack Nicholson’s purple Joker suit from “Batman” (did you know he picked that color because he loves the Lakers?)  I also interviewed Jake Monaco, composer for the Scooby-Doo reboot and “Dinotrux,” and social media star Splack (more on them coming soon).  I went to a panel on storytelling with Disney artists and another of my annual favorites, the MAD Magazine panel with the usual gang of idiots and the fans who love them.  And I got to talk to Caldecott award-winning writer/illustrator Brian Selznick about his upcoming film, “Wonderstruck,” starring Julianne Moore and directed by Todd Haynes.  More coming soon!
