(Richard Shotwell) CLEVELAND, Ohio – Comic-Con 2015 featured an abundance of special announcements and appearances.The Canadian actor, who will reprise his role as Wade Wilson and his Marvel anti-hero alter-ego, was joined by co-stars Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, TJ Miller, Morena Bacccarin and Ed Skrein in Hall H at the San Diego Convention Centre on July 11.San Diego Comic-Con has become one of the world’s biggest celebrations of pop culture and a major marketing opportunity to build hype for film and television shows.

Where else are the cast of X-Men: Apocaplypse, Fantastic Four, Gambit, Deadpool, and The Wolverine all going to hang out and take epic selfies together? Ryan thanked fans for “pressuring the studio” and “twisting their friggin’ arms”, saying: “I think this character inhabits a space in the comic universe that no character can or will ever inhabit,” he said. “I think it’s an absolute miracle that a studio let us make Deadpool, let alone a rated-R Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds introduced the first proper trailer for Deadpool at a panel, which is a reworking of the hugely popular test footage that kick-started the project back into life, cut together with some insight into the superhero’s backstory. Superman: Dawn of Justice one—featuring the first post-divorce appearance by Batfleck—that wowed geek audiences the most at this past weekend’s Comic-Con, but the Fox panel. The convention, which began in the 1970s to celebrate comics, has branched out to become four days of star-studded panels, featuring a host of celebrities promoting new blockbusters and celebrating cult favourites.

Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Oscar Isaac led the fifteen main cast members of next year’s “X-Men: Apocalypse,” each hinting at where their respective characters are in the new film. Yep, the stars of all five films came together to swap war stories and have some bants as 20th Century Fox wrapped it’s panel at the annual convention on Saturday. No matter what the rating, babies will love this.” Homeland actress Morena, who plays Wade’s love interest and fellow mutant Copycat, added: “You don’t get to read many superhero movies that have a badass romantic lead.

You’d have thought the studios would have learned to have the full HD versions prepped to go online by now, given the inevitability of someone filming the trailers from the back of auditoriums at Comic Con, but it looks like we won’t be seeing anything other than this appallingly-shot version for a few weeks. “As much as I want the #deadpool footage from #SDCC officially released, the VFX shots aren’t done yet. Director Bryan Singer said “Apocalypse” was set in the 1980s, 10 years after the events of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” While the world is more accepting of mutants, they themselves are still coming to terms with their powers and intentions, and deal with new evils. We have something for you in 3 weeks,” Ryan Reynolds tweeted from the event. “(It’s) the most faithful adaptation of a comic book to a movie I’ve ever seen,” he said. “I’ve only ever done one other proper—actually not proper—superhero movie [The Green Lantern].” Along with Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man, Deadpool sees Marvel go down a more comical, self-referential route, sending up the genre and laughing at its tropes.

Then, Fox trotted out the entire cast of its blockbuster superhero flick X-Men: Apocalypse, due in theaters May 27, 2016—including Channing Tatum, who will presumably make a cameo as the Cajun cardslinger Gambit. Jackman, who has played Wolverine in every “X-Men” movie since 2000, said he’ll be hanging up the claws after 2017’s “Wolverine” sequel, hinting at the possibility of seeing an older version of his character in the final film. The highlight of the Star Wars panel was the surprise appearance of Harrison Ford, who reflected on returning to the films, and the character that launched his career. Casts of Wolverine, X-Men, Deadpool, Gambit, and Fantastic Four PLUS the Generalissimo!!! #sdcc2015 #HallH #sdccDiarywick It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the audience of Hall H who probably couldn’t believe their luck that this many superheroes were all together.

We were really allowed to do what we do, which is the comedy,” he explained, adding: “It’s good, I’m really excited to see it.” “This was my first movie so I kinda jumped in, not knowing what to expect, but it was all fun and great,” she said. “The hardest part was probably memorising my lines because everyone was so great. Fans were treated to a clip of behind-the-scenes footage which showed explosions, robotic creatures and intricate sets, before being “escorted” by Stormtroopers to a live concert of composer John Williams’ Star Wars score at a nearby venue. That’s where we find our characters, and we find them in all different places.” Isaac, who plays the titular villain Apocalypse, described his villain as a “cult leader” who presumably persuades Magneto, Psylocke, and Angel to join him in his quest for world domination. Singer also unveiled a trailer culled from the first five weeks of filming that included a treasure trove of new material, including a look at all the new superheroes and supervillains—including Apocalypse—and a twist ending concerning Professor X.

Fans also got a first look at the film highlighting a band of anti-heroes including Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Will Smith’s Deadshot and Jared Leto’s Joker. The series, adapted from Suzanne Collins’ novels, tells the story of Katniss Everdeen’s battle to survive in a reality TV-style life-and-death game in a post-apocalyptic future state. Fans were also shown exclusive footage of upcoming gothic drama “Victor Frankenstein” and dystopian young adult adventure “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.” Set in a Wyoming haberdashery, this explosive group of bounty hunters, lawmen, outlaws and veterans — played by the likes of Kurt Russell, Tim Roth and Walton Goggins — take shelter from a blizzard and try to keep the peace.

Tarantino also hinted that he might continue to make movies, despite previously pledging to only make 10 films, because “directors don’t get better as they get older”. The most surprising aspect may just be how different the vibes of the trailers were. “The Walking Dead” Season 6 trailer showed Rick Grimes and his friends in battle mode. Actor Bill Murray stole the show in his first appearance at Comic-Con, promoting his film Rock the Casbah, making a rockstar-like entrance before leading the crowd in song.

Murray, who had long-resisted the idea of appearing in a third movie, said he approved of the all-female cast for the reboot — starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kat McKinnon. But, cast members from every one of 20th Century Fox’s superhero films were on hand, including Hugh Jackman (“Wolverine”/”X-Men-Apocalypse”), Channing Tatum (“Gambit”) and Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”). The trailer, shown exclusively at Comic-Con (Though, it leaked online), highlights leading man Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie, who looks amazing as Harley Quinn.
