It's not quite as massive as San Diego Comic Con, but New York Comic Con is definitely its own animal, and the convention took over Manhattan this weekend with its comics, costumes and characters. For your convenience, here's a brief roundup of all the movie-related stuff at this year's NYCC:
- McG did not deny nor confirm that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton would play a part in the new Terminator film, teasing "Perhaps by not answering your question, there's a small answer within." He also noted that since the T800 plays a big role in the film, they're trying to use visual effects to include Arnold in some capacity. On the Christian Bale tirade, McG joked: "You only got to hear the most explosive parts, but that remix is pretty hot." [More at Coming Soon]
- io9 reports that at the Radical Studios panel, Barry Levine said that Joseph Kosinski will return to San Diego Comic Con with a full trailer for the Tron sequel. [io9]
- Watchmen's Dave Gibbons addressed questions about the film's altered ending (""The outcome is exactly the same as the graphic novel, but the MacGuffin, the gimmick, is a little different."), and whether or not he thinks a prequel or sequel is a smart idea ("If you try to add anything to Watchmen, you're not enriching it, you're diluting it. Sure, you can tell another adventure of Batman or Spider-Man, but ("Watchmen") is like a complete story ... leave well enough alone.") [More at Coming Soon]
