Comic-Con 2105: Opening Night

Posted on July 9, 2015 at 1:16 am

The cutest items I saw on the Exhibition Hall this evening were these “Body Knockers” from famous movies. How many can you identify?

One of the highlights of Preview Night is an exclusive sneak peek at some of the upcoming television shows produced by Warner Brothers. They led off with a very sweet love note to Comic-Con from WB stars, each describing Comic-Con in three words.

The show I was most looking forward to was “Supergirl,” and it was everything I hoped. I loved Melissa Benoist as an everygirl who just happens to have superpowers, and it was a lot of fun to see her adoptive parents played by former Superman Dean Cain and former Supergirl Helen Slater. And Calista Flockhart as a boss right out of “Devil Wears Prada” was a hoot. I also really enjoyed “Lucifer,” inspired by Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic and the spin-off by Mike Carey. Tom Ellis is deliciously nasty as the Prince of Darkness, who decided to take some time off and run a nightclub while thoroughly enjoying every one of the seven deadly sins, with special emphasis on one or two.

I have a full day of panels tomorrow, so stay tuned!
