Immortals Comic Con Panel Comic Con 2011: ‘Immortals’ Panel

The 3D Immortals trailer from director Tarsem Singh (The Cell) quickly dispelled any notion that the stylized action-epic would simply be “300 with unlimited arrows.”

While the films definitely share a lot of similarities, Immortals is not without a few intriguing details of its own – specificially a high-profile leading-man spot for future Superman: Man of Steel, Henry Cavill, who plays Theseus in the film.

While the Immortals panel may not be as highly-anticipated as Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man in Hall H, with cast members Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, director Tarsem Singhin, as well as producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton attending, it’ll certainly be interesting to hear how the cast and filmmakers intend to establish their sword and shield epic as a premiere film experience – in an industry full of 300 clones.

Plus, as mentioned, with a Comic Con 2011 crowd hungry for Man of Steel details, it’ll be a miracle if Cavill gets off the stage without being asked at least one Superman question.

  1. Did Cavill look like he’s been bulking up for MoS?

    • The only question anybody really cares about. LOL.

    • Read in comic con interviews he says he’s 25lbs more than he was in Immortals @_@

  2. This movie was lost on me when the director said he “does not start with a script. He starts with a visual and tries to see if a story will fall in.” How about crafting a great story and letting the visuals find themselves?

    • Have you seen his other movies? The story, the characters, everything is always there.

      • Very true, and honestly the idea of visualizing everything before he starts with a script doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all.
