For the more than 20 years he's been on television, Conan O'brien sure knows how to make an entrance. And this year's San Diego Comic Con is no different.

You can always count on Conan to do two things: Make fun of himself and roll with the times. He and Andy Richter pick the best and most self-deflating way to get from LA to San Diego — the Doof Wagon from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Conan may not have as rich a back story as the real Doof Warrior but there's been plenty of ways for him to learn how to get his Doof on ever since the movie's May release.

As he's done for the past couple of years, Conan will film his show from sweaty, steamy, media petri dish that is SDCC.

  4. Suicide Squad
  5. Justice League


Where on earth is Deadpool? And Come on Star Wars nerds, where were you all weekend? You even had your own special emoji!

  1. Jennifer Lawrence
  2. Jared Padalecki (@jarpad)
  3. Jensen Ackles (@JensenAckles)
  4. Misha Collins (@mishacollins)
  5. Dylan Sprayberry (@DSprayberry)

  1. Once Upon a Time (@OnceABC)
  2. Arrow (@CW_Arrow)
  3. Supernatural (@cw_spn)
  4. Teen Wolf (@MTVteenwolf)
  5. The Vampire Diaries (@cwtvd)


Comic Con sure has come a long way from the comic book and superhero focused gathering it once was. Which film featured at SDCC are you most excited to see?

DC's Movie and TV Costumes Make an Appearance At SDCC 2015


With Marvel skipping San Diego comic Con this year, it's a prefect opportunity for DC to come in a seal up the promotional power of the four-day convention. As part of their strategy, Warner Bros and DC brought a gigantic amount of costumes from both their television and movie arms.

There's no Supergirl on display, but that's probably because Melissa Benoist is still rocking it on set. Here's everything from The Flash, Arrow, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Conan O'brien's decision to host his show from the San Diego confines of the country's biggest Comic Con provides him with some unprecedented access. 

That includes this hidden footage of many actors looking to play Wolverine and replace Hugh Jackman, who's hanging up his claws after portraying Logan in about 2,000 movies.

The variety of stars wanting to join the ranks of the X Men are a lot more varied than you would expect.

Example:



That's some real access he got there. Use your Comic Con power wisely, Conan. 
Game of thrones memes season 5 Sophie Turner talks about Sansa's wedding night.

HitFix has just updated their live blog of the San Diego Comic Con Game of Thrones panel with Sophie Turner's reaction to her character's wedding night.

If you don't know what happened, obviously spoilers here.

For the rest of us, we remember far too well how Ramsay Snow forcibly took Sansa's virginity and the terrible spectacle of seeing the bottom of that character's tragic arc.

People got real pissed about it.

Anyway, Turner came out really positive on her character in an answer to an audience question:

"If there's one thing Sansa still is, despite what happened to her, she's still strong."



She was also asked about why the director chose to zoom in on Theon during the wretched scene.



"I don't know because I was giving a great performance.Sansa could've fought back but she chose not to. She does her scheming her mind."



So there you have it. Sansa has scheming afoot and let's hope neither of them broke their legs jumping off the turreted walls of Winterfell.

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:

celeb news jesse eisenberg compares comic con to genocide

UPDATE: Eisenberg has clarified his comment, saying, "Maybe on some cellular memory level, that's the only thing that seems like an equivalent social experience. Even if they're saying nice things, just being shouted at by thousands of people, it's horrifying. I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that. I'm a normal person who has normal sensory experiences, so Comic-Con was very overwhelming for me. That said, it was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation. That people are excited about it in that way is unheard of and thrilling."

Original post follows below:

Get your cringe face ready, you're gonna need it for this one.

When asked about his experience at San Diego Comic Con, Jesse Eisenberg said attending was akin to genocide:

"It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don't know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can't think of anything that's equivalent."



Attending Comic Con is certainly hard on celebrities; it can't be easy being screamed at and accosted by fans, but genocide? What?

This isn't the first time Eisenberg has made headlines for his behavior in interviews, either. In 2013 he developed a reputation as a jerk after being insufferably rude in an interview for the film Now You See Me:



Cringe, cringe everywhere.
