UPDATED: Comic-Con: A Fan’s Hope Tour Promises “The San Diego Experience in Your Home Town”

Comic Con Tour

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:

  • Thu Apr 5 - Atlanta, GA – Cobb Energy PAC
  • Fri Apr 6 - Orlando, FL – UCF Arena
  • Sat Apr 7 - Miami Beach, FL – Fillmore Miami
  • Thu Apr 12 – Rochester, NY – Dome Arena
  • Fri Apr 13 – Albany, NY – Palace Theatre
  • Sat Apr 14 – Philadelphia, PA – Girard College
  • Sun Apr 15 – Wallingford, CT – Oakdale
  • Thu Apr 19 – Cincinnati, OH – Taft Theatre
  • Fri Apr 20 – Rosemont, IL – Akoo Theatre
  • Sun Apr 22 – Detroit, MI – Fillmore Detroit

    Well, this beats reading the Fan’s Hope book! Will this documentary and tour end up playing in San Diego? Will it end up playing in local theaters or go straight to DVD? Can’t wait to see it! Hopefully they show and interview the “real” fans who go Comic Con to meet the “real” stars, the comic book creators (artists and writers)!

      Well, I would think they will probably make a big splash with it at SDCC this year. Since they are showing it at the tour dates, I suspect it might be skipping theaters, though.

  2. Tony B says:

    It looks like the price of tickets is between $40 – $60. I’d say there better be guests or something there. Kind of hard to pay that kind of money for just a movie screening.
