I had hoped this would be the case but now I’m silently nervous. During my first Comic Con….at my second press room ever…I’ll be faced with the full cast of Supernatural. This can only end with me staring mutely. It’s happened before. Ask Jennifer Garner about our interaction during last year’s Toronto International Film Festival (clue: I stared mutely – and she was wearing the most amazing shoes….)
While the official schedule for the Supernatural panel at Comic Con this year listed the attendees as executive producers Sera Gamble and Ben Edlund, as well as creator/executive producer Eric Kripke, no cast members were mentioned by name. Fandom (and Twitter) were abuzz with the news that Misha Collins (Castiel) and Jim Beaver (Bobby) would be making appearances (which Beaver himself has confirmed on his Twitter account).
Now it’s been confirmed by BuddyTV that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles would also return for this year’s panel, which is taking place on Sunday, July 25 at 11:15 a.m. PST. Apparently we’ll be seeing some footage from season 6, along with seeing a preview from season 5’s DVD and Blu-ray special features.
So all of you who will be attending Comic Con this year are in for a treat – executive producers, the creator himself, and the full main cast members. It’s going to be one hell of a panel. I’ll be the girl in the back staring mutely.
So….if any of our readers out there would like to provide me with questions to ask in the press room, so that I look like a somewhat-intelligent person, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, comment below or tweet me @clarissa373.
While I’m at it, let me pimp the Twitter accounts for Collins and Beaver. Beaver speaks (and tweets) about two million impressive languages and you can find him at twitter.com/jumblejim. He also writes plays and best-selling books, appears in other shows and does so much stuff while raising a young daughter that I actually wonder where he finds the time. Collins, meanwhile, is secretly plotting to take over the world with his army of minions. It’s a cause I can support. You can follow it at twitter.com/mishacollins
