Comic Con - Day 4 - THE DAY!!!!!

I LOVE TOM WELLING!!

Sorry I didn't have this up last night, but I either came down with food poisoning, or just a horrible migrane, and spent last night sick in bed :(  Not exactly the way I wanted to end such a cool day.

So, let me just say how awesome it is for someone not only to meet your expectations, but exceed them.  And Tom did.

First, lets address the shallow.  The man is gorgeous.  I mean, seriously, off-the-charts, stunning.  I had very good seats, and I have a powerful zoom on my camera, and he's a lovely, lovely human being.  The whole cast is great looking, but Tom is unreal.  He walked out with a big, huge smile on his face, and it returned often.  The word I keep coming back to for him is "relaxed'.  If this is guy that is uncomfortable in this situation, you wouldn't be able to tell.  He seemed in command, and secure in his role as star, producer and celebrity.  He's very charismatic.

All the other actors at the panel were great too, and looked terrific.  I think a personal favorite of mine was Cassiday Freeman, who is just so cute.  I was able to get a quick picture of the group shot that they posed for at the end of the panel, and Cassiday got right up next to Tom, and I still think Cless would be a smoking couple :p

As for the spoilers, I'll go into those more at a later time, when I get home.  I think the footage looked great.  But I also think the show will remain very dark, and I'm not sure there's much light or happiness on the horizon.  That sort of sucks.  I also don't feel like much was learned from the mistakes of last season.  In fact, there almost seemed like it wasn't addressed at all.  That might've been the lack of questions about it. 

And the Supernatural panel was great fun as well.  Mischa Collins is hilarious and cute as a button.  And I adore Jim Beaver.  I felt far more positive about the spoilers they gave for the coming season.

So sorry you weren't feeling well last night - it must have been doubly hard because you were feeling so good before! I'm glad you got good seats and that nothing happened to keep Tom away. I hope your pics turned out well - I noticed the lighting in the room didn't seem all that conducive to great photography.

It definitely looks like S9 will start out dark - how could it not given Doomsday? But I'm still hoping. The interviews I've seen with Callum Blue give me a little more hope for the whole Zod arc.

Valerie, first off I hope you are feeling better or will soon. That sux to be sick when you've had such a great day earlier.

It's so great you got to go and even had good seats. I hear not everyone got in. You must still be on cloud 9 after seeing our man in real life and even the pics circulating show how amazing and relaxed he looked. I can't help but grin ear to ear as I look at each one and see him in videos that have been posted. His smile is infectious. If only we all could have been there but at least he was there this year and thanks to all who went and shared.

I wonder how a dark season will be. It looked almost like Clark was angry or evil in those clips of the trailer. Is that the feel of it? I can't wait for Sept. to get here regardless. I'm so glad Tom is now Exec Pro! That's a long time coming and he so deserves it with all his input over the years as well as posting. It was all so exciting to read all the play by play yesterday. I almost felt like I was there with you all. *G*

Get well soon!

Sorry you got sick - you must have been so tired after lining up at 4 in the morning!

I'm so glad that Tom exceeded your expectations! He is so beautiful & smiley in the photos I've seen so far, and seemed happy & relaxed to be there. It must have been awesome to be in the same room & I can't wait to see your photos!

I am so happy for you that you got in, and that you had such a great time. I had my fingers crossed for you! And of course, we're all dying to see the pictures! :-)

I'm sorry to learn you were sick. I hope you are feeling much better now!

I'm so happy for you, Valerie! You got to see Tom in person! I'm so glad he even exceeded your expectations! What an experience! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Looking forward to your pics!

I'm so sorry to hear you weren't feeling well! I hope you're better now.

Val, I can't even begin to express to you how happy I am that you made the decision to go to Comic-Con this year, and were able to see Tom in person. It was meant to be, and no one deserved it more. Watching the panel on video gave me chills, it just felt like such an important moment, for Tom and for the show. And he looked unbelievably gorgeous! I can't wait to see your pics!

I loved that he dressed up. He looked every inch the man in charge in every way. Producer, director, and star! And just as you say, he looked totally relaxed and at ease. He was charming, happy, intelligent, articulate, and funny! And he appears to have a great rapport with Kelly and Brian, which can only bode well for the show. I LOVED what he said about closing the gap between the production side and what happens on set. I have so much respect for this man!

I've seen the tilted, chopped-off bootleg copy of the S9 trailer, and even in less-than-perfect quality, it was thrilling for me. Bring on the darkness, I want to see what Tom does with it. And OMG, how magnificent did he look at the end?!!! I've got my fingers crossed for promo pics from Andreas sometime soon. They would top by far anything we've ever seen before, even last year's wet, scruffy, bloody Clark from Odyssey.

I want to hear every word you care to share about your experience, and your impressions of Tom. I know you will treasure these memories forever, and every time you look at the pics, you'll remember that you took them yourself, from just across the room. Can you even believe it was real? :) Safe travels, and thanks for sharing with us!

Get well Pronto! Travel and excitement can bring you down the next day after the thrill of it all. Take an aspirin and snuggle a kitty. You'll be fine.

I've been reading the news and watching the Videos of the Comic Con for Smallville. Supernatural? Dollhouse? Johnny Depp? EH, who cares!

Tell me more!

Bummer about not feeling well, but hey... at least it didn't happen until *after* the panel. How disastrous if it had struck right before!

Thank you SO much for sharing your experience with all of us fellow Tom-fangirls. I am so thrilled that you got to have this amazing experience.

You got to go? You live nearby I guess? Living in Toronto stinks sometimes.

How are you? This is the first time in a while where I've been genuinely excited about the cast of Smallville again. Still iffy on the show because I really disliked the season finale but I love these boys and girls.

The videos from gonturan are awesome! The quality is SO good, I got to see Tom, Erica and Justin clearly, thank you gonturan for putting these up! I watched them all and it was an awesome panel, if only because Tom Welling was there! He is GORGEOUS AND SO YOUTHFUL! Erica is so BEAUTIFUL as well. I wished that they sat beside each other, instead Tom sat between the two producers...awkward.

My favourite part of the panel was when the girl asked Tom to keep looking at her! Hilarious! He is so charming and such a sweet guy, I really missed seeing him in interviews. I know he got sick of them but I'm so glad he decided to go this year. And he's a producer now? I knew Tom agreed to a season 9 for a good reason. I wished someone would have asked him if he plans to star in a film in the future after Smallville...

I missed commenting on your posts. Summer is a busy season I suppose.

*hugs* I am so glad that someone I know and appreciated the loveliness of Tom Welling got to see him in person. I love hearing your description of how he handled himself up there 'cause I was nervous for him when I kept reading all the excitement about him going to CC for the first time. I bet he was nervous but is really good handling himself in front of big crowds...not to mention he had his collegues/friends up there with him and who probably told him what to expect. I love in the vids I've watched of the panel how when they were announcing Tom's name that Erica turned to the crowd and put a hand to her ear and then waved her arms and stood up to help with the standing "O". It really looked like the cast and producers who have done these conventions before really wanted Tom to "feel the love" and see for himself how loved the show is and I'm glad that they got him to go. Wished the Q/A was longer because I'm sure so many folks had good questions to ask but I'm sure it was worth it just being there too. Can't wait to see your pics when you have chance babe!!!!

PS...migraine? OMG I that those and before I was preggers I used to get 3 month and had to take harsh pills to get rid of them. I hope you are feeling better...

Be still, my fangirl heart.
