Saturday , the big day at any con and this one would be no different .The schedule was packed with lectures , autograph signings photo ops and contests . A comic con will have something for everyone. I consider Saturday the lecture day, which is the day many fans including myself sit and listen to different industry people talk about their lives and their art. The day started off a little rough as the city of Cleveland decided to close the road in front of the convention center for a morning marathon so just getting into the convention center was an adventure .
The fine folks at Wizard World really know how to set a schedule as far as filling it up to get the most bang for your buck. My morning started with a great talk with the Russo brothers Joe and Anthony along with the Ivan Schwartz of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission discussing filming movies right here in Cleveland. Up next was my favorite Doctor Who companion Miss Karen Gillan and her take on time travel. Everyone in Cleveland favorite fictional Indians player Mr. Corbin Bersen who talked about spending a lot of time here in Cleveland. The one and only Freddy Kruger and his reality based counter part Robert Englund talked about nightmares , Johnny Depp , Wes Craven and living in Lakewood and Rocky River. Frank Grillo gave a no holds barred question and answer session to the delight of the audience. Michael Rooker took it one step further and actually went and asked the audience questions, I liked him before and now I think he is even cooler if that’s possible. The beautiful women agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Chloe Bennett and Elizabeth Henstridge made the temperatures rise in the room with their stunning good looks , charm and intelligence.
The two huge draws of the day were the mighty Thor himself Chris Hemsworth. He could disarm a bomb with just his demeanor. The crowd really wowed him and he wowed the crowd. I have to say no Hollywood ego here , but then again he is an Aussie. The last presenter of the day is one that I have been a fan since moment one of watching him on screen . The Doctor is in by the name of Matt Smith , the youngest of all the actors to play Doctor Who but one that will be knows as one of the best . His talk was thrilling and it was fun seeing how much was a character on screen and how much of it was the performer .
The event continues tomorrow at the Convention Center so there is still time to get your favorite autograph or a photo op. Until next time , see you at the con !
