IDW included True Blood’s very own Michael McMillian as a featured guest at their booth on day 2 of WonderCon 2012. He was so nice to us when we stopped by for him to autograph our True Blood comics. Fans also brought along copies of “Lucid”. Michael is the author for the comic series.
Warner Bros. picked up the rights to Archaia Entertainment’s comic book mini-series “Lucid”. for writer-producer Akiva Goldsman to develop and produce as a potential new film franchise. Zachary Quinto’s production banner Before the Door, which created the book, also is on board to adapt the property for the bigscreen. SOURCE:
The images in the gallery below show him signing away! Huge thanks again to IDW for having him at WonderCon. (fun to see Michael without his “Newlin” flip hair!)
Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker and Peter Berg attended the Battleship panel at WonderCon 2012. They showed a new trailer that featured more of Alexander Skarsgard’s character of Stone Hopper interacting with his on screen brother Taylor Kitsch. The trailer shows the brothers at a bar celebrating Kitsch’s birthday and big brother Stone is buying him drinks. (complete with a celebratory birthday cupcake). Kitsch sees Brooklyn at the bar and of course makes a wish for her. He is unemployed and big brother Stone is in the Navy. We learn that Stone is following in their father’s footsteps and looks out for his younger brother.
Kitsch does his best to impress Brooklyn in the bar and winds up trying to procure a chicken burrito for the hungry beauty. He goes to great lengths to obtain the burrito and it was quite a comical scene. The next trailer shown has a time jump of five years into the future and Kitsch is now in the Navy and has really cleaned up his act. The second trailer also featured some of the action showing Rihanna in her acting debut.
The full WonderCon programming schedule for 2012 is up on the website link here: The con is normally held in San Francisco but due to renovations at their convention center it has been moved to Anaheim for 2012. The Convention will run Friday March 16-Sunday March 18, 2012
Imagine my surprise when I was reviewing the information to plan out my weekend when I noticed this little gem:

Sent off an email to confirm that yes this will be happening. Keeping fingers crossed that yes it will. There is always also a chance that schedules will change due to filming requirements. WonderCon has the following “small print” regarding celebrity apperances and programming panels:
