UPDATE: The tour has been cancelled.
While details are somewhat scarce, a “live pop-culture movie and tour” is being launched in support of “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” the documentary about the San Diego Comic Con directed by Morgan Spurlock and produced by the likes of Joss Whedon, Stan Lee, and Harry Knowles. Whether any of them will actually be in attendance at these events remains to be seen, but the promotional material promises “live superstar panels, exclusive footage from upcoming blockbusters, previews of the coolest new toys and collectibles” and “the incredible goodie bag.”
Ten tour dates have been announced so far with more to come:
