Director George Miller and Warner Bro’s debuted the Mad Max sizzle reel which quickly became one of the highlights of the weekend. Starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, Miller is rebooting his own franchise with an entirely new interpretation.

Prepare to geek out.

2. The Women Who Kick Ass panel kicked ass

Not only was the panel awesome, it was scheduled directly before the Marvel Studios Panel. So those who wanted to attend the Marvel panel, easily one of the biggest draws of the weekend, had to watch Women Who Kick Ass beforehand, or risk not getting in at all. The panel always draws a huge crowd, but its placement in the schedule allowed for a broader audience than usual.

3. The lines were absolutely horrendous

Oknot shocking whatsoever but seriously, look at that line.

Certain panels such as American Horror Story and Fight Club were booked in rooms far too small for the fan base, causing moderators to turn away hundreds and even thousands of convention goers from seeing their favorite panels.

One plus side of camping outside Hall G was that there was a small chance that Lee Pace or Jared Padalecki may have stopped by to surprise you.

4. Comic Con’s introduced a new Hall H wristband system

Wristbands were handed out in line before 1am and after 5am. If you didn’t get a wristband then you weren’t getting into the first panel, and then it was basically a crap shoot to when, if ever, you would get in.

People don’t like change, and the new wristbands were no exception. It predominately caused confusion, annoyance, and anger. The only way to avoid those emotions were to camp out. Over night. In the same line you’d have to wait in all morning. In downtown San Diego.

No thanks.

5. The new Wonder Woman was revealed

Zac Snyder offered a first look at Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and tweeted the revamped look for Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to the joy and dismay of fans everywhere.

She looks pretty badass, but critics are condemning Snyder’s interpretation for its lack of color, particular her famous red, white & blue claiming it’s more Xena than Wonder Woman.

Both Maisie Williams and Harry Potter.I mean Daniel Radcliffe went as Spidey, while director Peter Jackson (LOTR) went as evil jester, even posing for pics with convention goers who liked his costume.

Thankfully, they later revealed their true identities through social media, allowing fans to freak out and hypothesize whether they saw real Daniel Radcliffe or just another Spiderman.
