Kevin Doyle walked to Comic Con this year, all the way from his home in Petaluma, CA which is over 500 miles north of San Diego. To give you an idea, take a look at the Google Map:



Not only did Kevin walk around 600 miles to SDCC, he did it in full Stormtrooper armor:




He made this journey for his wife, Eileen who tragically passed from pancreatic cancer in 2012 at the age of 45. For Kevin, this walk is a way to celebrate and mourn the loss of his wife, keep a promise and raise money for a charity he's created in her honor. Called Eileen's Little Angels, the charity provides gifts to children going through chemotherapy.

Kevin officially finished his journey Thursday, July 9th, but you can always help out his cause by donating here.

San Diego Comic Con attendees at the Warner Bros panel this morning got to see new footage from Batman v Superman, featuring Wonder Woman and Lex Luthor in action. Luckily for us, Warmer Bros has already put it up online. The cast of BvS took the stage to talk production and revealed some interesting tidbits:

  • Christian Bale's advice to Ben Affleck re: the Batman suit: "make sure you can piss in that thing." Touché, Bale, touché.
  • Batman v Superman is an homage to Frank Miller and the Dark Knight, according to Snyder, but is not the same story.
  • Gotham and Metropolis are twin cities in the film, much like Oakland and San Francisco.
  • Batman's suit in BvS is intentionally larger to protect him from Superman, so maybe it won't be as cheesy as it looked in some of the promo images.


Attendees also got a look at Suicide Squad, which many described on Twitter as being very dark, cynical, and violent. Looks like there won't be any goofy, Marvel-esque antics here. Watch the potato quality version below:





The panel also revealed that next Green Lantern film won't be just another retelling of Hal Jordan's story; it'll feature the Green Lantern Corps, an intergalactic police force made up of more than 7000 lanterns. This reveal isn't surprising, given Tyrese Gibson's recent tease of two lanterns on Instagram:

A special exhibit at Japan's National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (that's a mouthful!) brings visitors into a Pokémon Lab where they, alongside Professor Pikachu, learn about scientific methods using Pokémon as subjects. What better way to learn about observation and classification than with Pokémon?

Tired of not being able to find superhero merchandise for his 5-year-old daughter, this geek dad took matters into his own hands. With some fabric and a sewing machine, he busted out this awesome Kamala Khan costume for his daughter when they attended New York Comic-Con.

It was even more important since she got to meet and interview Ms. Marvel's writer, G Willow Wilson. They totally nailed it:
