Comic Con 2019: Day One

It was a BIG day at San Diego Comic Con today with not only Tom Cruise showing up at Conan O’Brien’s special taping along with the first trailer for Top Gun: Maverick but Arnold himself showed up for the big Hall H Terminator Dark Fate panel.

Thanks for our very own Dominick Dusseault, we’ve got some great pictures of the Terminator panel. You can check those out below:

As for the Tom Cruise appearance on Conan, NiceGirl Lisa was at the taping, and let’s just say it was a BIG surprise to everyone that the special guest was Mr. Cruise himself. And, he also crashed the Terminator Dark Fate panel to show off the trailer for Top Gun: Maverick.

Here is a picture from NiceGirl Lisa:

As for Terminator Dark Fate news, James Cameron wasn’t in attendance at the panel, but he livestreamed a message form the set of Avatar and the news dropped that Judgment Day’s Edward Furlong will be in the movie, reprising the role of John Connor. Did anyone see THAT coming?!

As everyone recalls, Linda Hamilton got herself into peek physical condition for Judgment Day, but this time around her preparations were “more internal. The hard work I did was the deep exploration of a woman who’s an outsider whose life hasn’t worked out. I had to go to my deepest sorrows and places of deepest loss, and that’s what makes Sarah Connor, Sarah Connor. (Courtesy i09/Gizmodo)

Here is a trailer for Terminator Dark Fate:

Among the TV shows that were featured with panels on the first day of the convention were:

Van Helsing (Syfy)

Thanks to Amrie Cunningham at My Take on TV for the following fantastic picture of actress Tricia Helfer (of Battlestar Galactica fame), who will join the season 4 cast of the Syfy horror series:

TOMORROW: Day Two, Comic Con 2019

Last night’s programming options on the major networks was filled with game shows, reality and repeats as well as two Wednesday night dramas airing new episodes.

Here is how those two Wednesday night dramas fared in the overall ratings:

9 PM Show:
Jane the Virgin (The CW) [NEW] – 624,000 viewers

10 PM Show:
The InBetween (NBC) [NEW] – 2.3 million viewers

What did you watch on TV last night. Please share.

Two of the advanced screeners that aired last night at San Diego Comic Con during Preview Night included FOX’s upcoming psychological drama Prodigal Son and the latest DC Universe series Batwoman.

Here is the synopsis of Prodigal Son:

Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne from The Walking Dead) is a gifted criminal psychologist, using his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with a manipulative mother (Bellamy Young from Scandal), a serial killer father (the one and only Michael Sheen) still looking to bond with his prodigal son and his own constantly evolving neuroses. Bright’s only ally is his sister, Ainsley (Halston Sage from The Orville), a TV journalist who wishes her brother would take a break from murder and have a normal life. Unfortunately for his sister, the only way Bright feels normal is by solving cases with the help of his longtime mentor, NYPD Detective Gil Arroyo (Lou Diamond Phillips). Arroyo’s one of the best detectives around, and he expects no less from his team, which includes Detective JT Tarmel (Frank Harts from The Path), a born-and-bred New Yorker who questions whether Bright is a psychopath himself.

Prodigal Son is set to debut on FOX on September 23, 2019.

Special correspondent NiceGirl Lisa provided us with this review:

I missed the first 15 minutes of The Prodigal Son pilot, but from what I saw it was a strong pilot. Michael Sheen gives an incredible performance in the episode. Lou Diamond Phillips also shines. It gave me Lucifer vibe a little bit, but I think it’s a strong pilot and will be a good show.

Here is a trailer for Prodigal Son:

Here is the synopsis of Batwoman:

Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair, and it’s under the watch of Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. When the Alice in Wonderland gang targets the firm, Kane’s daughter Kate (Ruby Rose from Orange Is the New Black) returns home, deciding that if she wants to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes — a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her stepsister Mary and the crafty Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman.

Batwoman will debut on The CW on October 6, 2019

Again, special correspondent NiceGirl Lisa provided us with this review:

Batwoman was really good. I am a huge fan of Ruby Rose, and she did a great job of carrying the pilot as well as stepping into the Batwoman character. It was really interesting to see the background of how she becomes Batwoman, why she becomes Batwoman and those questions are answered in the pilot. I also liked that they touched on homosexual issues because she is a lesbian, and I really liked that they have that aspect on the show. The cast is diverse and great support system for Ruby Rose to shine.

Here is a trailer for Batwoman:

NiceGirl Mynda

Right now in San Diego, hundreds of thousands of pop culture fans are at the convention center for Comic Con 2019, checking out the Preview Night screeners – more on that shortly – as well as a sneak peek inside the coveted doors of the Exhibition Hall (see below for a few pictures from inside those walls).

Just like last year, Amazon had a big outside-the-convention-center activation area dedicated to The Expanse, The Boys and Carnival Row. Thanks to my fellow NiceGirlsTV staff members, who are at the con, I understand The Boys and The Expanse activations were “escape-room type challenges” while the one for Carnival Row was “more like an immersive theater experience.”

Check out NiceGirl Cay’s, NiceGirl Mynda’s and NiceGirl Lisa’s pictures from Carnival Row:

Cool, right?!

Among the special screenings that were to take place in Ballroom 20 were the pilot episodes of The CW’s new DC series Batwoman and the debut episode of Pennyworth that will be debuting on EPIX as well as a look at the new animation series Harley Quinn (among a number of other screeners).

And, thanks to the folks at FOX 5 San Diego, I understand that a special fundraising event for the new Comic-Con Museum happened this evening. The event was called “The Gathering.” It featured a black carpet celebration with Batman, who hit 80 this year, the first character inducted into the museum.

Now it’s time for the Roz’s Report. She got a chance to stop by the Her Universe booth, grabbing herself a new Loki dress and a Ravenclaw (that’s from the Harry Potter universe if you’ve been living under a rock – wink!) sweater dress. She also got herself some cute Doctor Who tattoos and a Fourth Doctor pin.

Check out the pics below:

Roz also got to check out this really cool Lego display for Game of Thrones. Check them out below:

As promised here are a few pictures I found online for Preview Night 2019 inside the Exhibition Hall. Thanks go out to the folks over at Bleeding Cool for these:
