The 7 Biggest Fan Disappointments From Comic Con 2014
While the annual Pop Culture mega event, San Diego Comic Con keeps getting bigger and better as fans have no end of options to things to see, do, and hear, expectations and reality do not often mix.
This is not to say that the con has failed to meet expectations, far from it, but rather fans expecting to see or hear news about certain films came away disappointed.
Combine that with the fact that some waited in line upwards of 11+ hours to get a sacred seat in hall H for the Saturday movie panels, only to miss out on things they expected to see. When a studio holds the cards as to what, when, and where, information is first shown, many fans expect to see new things at the con, sadly some studios do not always play ball.
With that in mind, here is a list of some of the biggest disappointments from Comic Con 2014
No “Jurassic World”.
They had vehicles on hand, but sadly no footage. Fans were eager to get a glimpse of the new film, and sadly fans would have had better luck spotting a T-Rex in the Gaslamp District.
No Dr. Strange casting announcements or new Marvel films announced.
Marvel rocked their panel, but no news on who will be playing Dr. Strange or news of any other films aside from the ones fans already knew about.
The missing Big Bang Theory cast.
Due most likely to contract issues, only production staff was on hand to meet fans of the #1 comedy. Hopefully things will be worked out soon as the Fall Debut is not that far away.
Nothing on 24.
Holding a panel soon after the finale seemed like a golden way to promote the next phase of the series after making a triumphant return after four years. Sadly all that the audience got were reactions on filming the recent shows in London and nothing about the future.
Arnold has always said he will be back but sadly fans did not get to see the much anticipated new entry into the series. Hopes of a teaser trailer or a logo did not appear leaving fans with more questions than answers.
Nothing on “Prometheus 2” or “Blade Runner 2”
Most likely this will be prime material for the 2015 show but fans had hoped for some kind of news or announcement of the two highly-anticipated sequels.
Video Game Movies
We got a taste of “Warcraft” but where were Bioshock, Assassins Creed, The Last of Us, Uncharted, and others? I am sure a logo, casting news, etc, would have gone over huge especially since gaming has become a large and growing part of the convention.
The list shows how despite an enormous offering of programming at the show, many fans have their hearts set on certain things and can be disappointed when studios do not deliver anticipated news, however the show once again rocked and proved why it is the #1 Pop Culture event in the world as far as we are concerned.
