Nerd HQ continued its panel series today at San Diego’s Petco Park, opposite San Diego Comic-Con International. borg.com’s own Jason McClain attended the enlightening and fun Doctor Who panel featuring Matt Smith, Jenna-Louise Coleman, and Steven Moffat (and some great questions from fans). Again today all Nerd HQ panels were available to the rest of the world via live streaming video, which was watched live by more than 2,000 viewers. Whereas Alan Tudyk hosted the panels yesterday, Nathan Fillion was the emcee for today’s panels, often asking his own excellent questions of the panelists. (Note that you may want to skip ahead a few minutes on each video to get to the beginning of the panel).
Editor’s Note: We updated yesterday’s Nerd HQ update today with the panel featuring the hilarious cast of Haven, which had not yet been uploaded when we posted last night. So if you missed that one, check it out!
First up, don’t miss this great interview with Wil Wheaton, where he explains very well why Comic-Con and its genre fan attendees come together to make such a great event each year. And he mentions this certain Sharknado cosplayer that Jason McClain caught a photo of today.
Sharknado, Syfy Channel’s latest monster mash-up TV movie is still trending on Twitter and we all agree this lady had her act together to get this costume ready in time for this weekend. Here is today’s interview with Wil:
Beginning today Nerd HQ featured a panel devoted to the one and only unofficial King of Comic-Con, Joss Whedon (a great interview where he gets into things like Doctor Horrible and Angel as well as answers probably the awesomely nerdiest questions ever asked at a Con regarding the actions of Loki between Thor and The Avengers, which he answers very seriously):
Next up, the Riddick panel, shown at the outside venue, featuring Katee Sackhoff and star Vin Diesel (check out our post earlier today for the full length trailer previewed in part in the panel):
Nerd HQ featured a panel from the Thrilling Adventure Hour:
Next up is the Tiny Commando panel:
Don’t even think about missing this Doctor Who panel, with Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman and a very funny Steven Moffat, and all the questions you’d want to ask Matt Smith about his last season as The Doctor:
Next is the KickAss 2 panel featuring mainly the film’s creators including John Romita, Jr., and visited at the end of the panel by the film’s co-stars Christopher Mintz-Plasse and John Leguizamo:
This is a fun session with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Lost star Evangeline Lilly, with some nice conversation with Nathan Fillion, too:
Finally, the last panel of the day featured Game of Thrones star Richard Madden chatting with Zachary Levi (lots of spoilers if you’re not caught up on the series):
Come back tomorrow as we wrap up coverage of Nerd HQ.
