At last! Comic-Con is posting their schedule later than ever this year, although no later than they’d said they would. We finally get to post the complete information about our “Where Are the Action Chicks?” panel. Bringing together a number of online friends and several others I look forward to meeting, I’ll lead a discussion on why there aren’t more action chicks as the lead characters in comic books and movies. Why aren’t there more superheroine movies? Why is there still no theatrical Wonder Woman movie?
Panel: Where Are the Action Chicks?
Convention: San Diego Comic-Con International
Where: San Diego Convention Center, room 26AB.
When: Friday, July 23, 2010, 2:00-3:30
Nerdy Bird Jill Pantozzi (blogger – MTV Splash Page, Girls Entertainment Network, thenerdybird.com)
Adrianne Curry (cosplayer, reality TV star – America’s Next Top Model, My Fair Brady)
Luci Romberg (stuntwoman – Ninja Warrior, Zombieland) [UPDATE: A stunt job came up, so Luci can’t make it. Given the erratic nature of stuntwork, we always knew this was possible. To make it up, she promised to spill some beans on Green Lantern later this summer. Actress Clare Kramer (Glory on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is coming in her place. See “Our Comic-Con Panel Lost Luci, Gained Goddess Glory.”]
Marjorie Liu (writer – Black Widow, Hunter Kiss, Dirk & Steele)
J. Michael Straczynski (writer – Babylon 5, The Amazing Spider-Man, Wonder Woman)
Jennifer Stuller (Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors)
Gina Misiroglu (The Superhero Book, The Supervillain Book)
Cindy Morgan (TRON, Caddyshack)
Next week we’ll post a list of other panels of particular interest to this chick. But curse whoever scheduled a Hall H panel for The Expendables (Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren) to overlap with our friends who are doing “Geek Girls Exist” late Friday afternoon.
