Morgan Spurlock Shows Off His Comic-Con Documentary. Finally. [VIDEO]

Cautiously Optimistic

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (2010, San Diego), Morgan Spurlock said he was going to make a documentary about Comic-Con. Well, Comic Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope is finally upon us. The film will be released in theaters and video on demand April 6th but you can get a sneak peek at the making of, and what to expect from, the documentary right now with this featurette. From the look of it, it seems like it may feature a lot of celebrities. Let’s hope they remembered Comic-Con is all about the fans and give them the majority of screentime. Though Heidi MacDonald over at The Beat has seen it and gives it a thumbs up so that’s a good sign. You can find out more info on their website
