Comic-Con: 'Scott Pilgrim' rules Hall H

Posted on

Now that’s the way to run a panel. Moderated by director Edgar Wright himself, Universal’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World panel killed today in Hall H. Not only did Wright bring out every member of the cast, with the exception of Chris Evans who’s off filming Captain America. But he even had his Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz stars Nick Frost and Simon Pegg run on stage until he announced that they weren’t in the movie, and then they ran off. The highlight, of course, was star Michael Cera who conducted the entire panel while in a padded Capt. America suit. “Few people know this but Michael auditioned for the part of Steve Rodgers,” said Wright. “He got down to the last 500.” And then as if it were possible to make things better, Wright invited all of Hall H to follow him to a movie theater to see the entire movie. Nice!
