Five films have made it big at the Comic Con. They have garnered accolades for their narrative and plots.

There were five fantastic films that won the awards at the Comic Con 2015. They included among their repertoire: Deadpool, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Suicide Squad, X-Men: Apocalypse and last but not least Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 


Deadpool is an R-rated movie that received an encore from the audience. It nearly didn’t make it into its final form. Ryan Reynolds plays a superhero in the film. The film is a virtual wonderment and surprise in itself. The director was allowed a lot of leeway and so Deadpool got made. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 

Meanwhile Star Wars: The Force Awakens showed the handiwork of J.J. Abrams. Episode VII has arrived right on time as usual. And with Harrison Ford available on stage to answer the myriad questions, it seemed that things couldn’t get any better. He commented on how it should have felt ridiculous but it in fact felt great to be there. 

Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad was a powerhouse of a movie alright. It was a showstopper and stole the limelight from the Batman v Superman movie. All the macho men and gone girls of DC Comics came on board to present a stellar cast. It was indeed a case of the bad guys being used against other bad guys.

X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse was Bryan Singer’s ending to the Days of Future Past. The trailer that got presented at the Comic Con 2015 sure wowed the audience. Sophie Turner, Lana Condor and Olivia Munn not to mention Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy lit up the screen with their magical acting skills. Hugh Jackman commended the role as the loftiest he had played in his entire existence on planet earth.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was directed by Zack Snyder. The two superheroes took an equal part in this wonderful movie. Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot not to mention Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and several others have fitting roles in this film of films. 

All the cast of Deadpool (and there were a lot of them) came close enough for a giant selfie. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck and Christian Bale were friends since they shared a common experience as Batman actors. Bale told Ben that he ought to be able to urinate in that tight fitting suit if he tried. This was meant in a jocular manner of course. 

The cast of Supernatural got a chance to share some memories too. Bill Murray sauntered on the scene and defended Miley Cyrus while saying that he had a habit of partying hard. A Doctor Who pic with Peter Capaldi (he of Local Hero notorious foot-kissing fame) got taken too. On the other hand Sherlock’s cast couldn’t make it to the show on time. 

Comic Con and Hollywood go together. Marvel, Paramount and Sony were the big three studios present at the Comic Con 2015 this time around. Bill Murray promoted his comedy titled Rock the Kasbah. And while Bill went way overboard in his defense of the naughty ways of teenagers, Ryan Reynolds was forgiven his excesses.

Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight managed to gain a lot of attention from his rabid fans. And although there was a script leakage, his film still had its aficionados. Tarantino is especially known to go gaga at the sight of the latest movies. 

Warner Brothers took up the challenge of lending quality entertainment to the rest of the world and it displayed its skillful handling of its artistic products at the Comic Con. Among some of the other talents on board the event were Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin.

The Walking Dead also presented a sneak peek via a trailer at the Comic Con.

Game of Thrones with its list of medieval characters were hobnobbing and rubbing shoulders with the high and mighty stars that thronged the event. Everybody got to know everybody else and it was a truly marvelous moment in time. There were few hitches and the stars and their admirers got to devote themselves wholeheartedly to the hero and heroine worship that comes with the territory. 

Fans have a fantastic time indeed at the Comic Con every year. And San Diego is the center of the event. While some shocks and surprises lay in store, overall the tenor was smooth plain sailing all the way. Bryan Cranston’s microphone fell from his hands when he was with a fan. There were several good points and necessary evils at the event.

The entrance tickets cost $200 apiece. And they sold out like hotcakes despite the steep prices. As for the hotels nearby, they cost about $500 per night’s stay which was an astronomical rate. The long distances involved in walking around the Comic Con made it a very tiring process. As for the long lines, they caused much chagrin among those present. 

As for the good points, well, for starters, the space was large enough to accommodate a lot of people. As for the question and answer panels that were set up, they quenched the thirst of the scads of fans about their favorite stars and starlets. And finally, the people in costumes made the event a lively one alright filled with zing and zest.  

All in all, everything went well and things were hunky dory. Nothing was lost on the crowds that gathered as they gazed in lust and fantasy-mongering at their cherished actors and actresses.

The world watched as San Diego became the venue for a lot of creativity and activity to boot. Everything dovetailed as the movies and films not to mention the players who played their parts in them gathered to amaze the onlookers. Seldom have so many met so many others and offered a more vicarious experience of satisfaction and fantasy-fulfillment. 

It was an ideal platform for popularity-boosting and fame-factorization. And people like that tired old geezer named Harrison Ford as well as younger stars such as Ryan Reynolds and Henry Cavill made sure that things went along their paths in a smooth manner. The event rocked!
