Guardians of the Galaxy 2 continues on, inexorably.

Thunderstorms coming, so let me make this an early night: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is ¬†wrapped. Apparently filming came in on time and under budget, which is not exactly normal for a movie of this size, especially when the director knows how much freaking money it’s liable to make for the film studio. Also: it’s going to be shown at Comic Con in May 2017. So if you were looking for a reason to go…

PS: Before anybody asks: I don’t think that I can really do Comic-Con unless it was as media; and it’s unlikely that I’m going to have a third-party group pay my way for that one. Such is life.

    You could always start a go fund me page to get you there and then you could report on all the pageantry here on moelane.com

      This is America, dangint. Some of us should continue the work Moe’s started at PJM and just start our own website. The industry could use a fresh site that hasn’t yet succumbed to Conquest’s Second Law.

        That’s a tantalizing tidbit of an idea you’ve dangled there. Do you have anything more specific in mind?

    There’s a lot of stuff that goes on at Comic Con that I’d really like to see, and I already live in the San Diego suburbs… but I just really can’t stand crowds.

  • Aruges says:

    Is there any real point to going to large cons anymore? All the panels get recorded and posted to youtube, the merch can be bought cheaper online, the comradery of hanging out with fellow geeks is ruined by the huge crush of people… What’s really left?

      Gaming, networking, and being away from the house for a couple of days.

      At DragonCon, there’s the experience of hanging out with sixty thousand fellow geeks for four days. Plus, of all the large cons, there are a greater percentage of people in costume at DragonCon than anywhere else, pretty much. I even saw someone dressed as “Weird Al” Yankovic last year.

    It’s hitting theatres in May 2017, but they’re going to be doing a presentation at SDCC this July. Pedantic, I know, but I was confused about *which* ComicCon you were talking about, because San Diego is always in July.

    And trying to get to SDCC is a nightmare these days. They have lotteries for hotel rooms, and maybe even for badges now, too. It’s on my bucket list, but I don’t know if I’ll ever be fussed to actually make it.

    I was flipping around tv channels tonight and ran across the animated Guardians of the Galaxy, and the description of the episode in question started “The Guardians and the Asgardians team up …”

    There was just something about that phrasing (try saying it out if you don’t get it) that amused me tremendously.
