Which way will Superman fly in the 21st century? DC Entertainment's own superheroes Geoff Johns and Jim Lee tackle this and other comic book questions Saturday, June 11 at the Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood.
Superman has been a cultural icon for 73 years, capturing the hearts and imagination of the world through the pages of DC Comics. What does DC have in store for Superman and can this young, hot creative duo launch Clark Kent and his alter ego into the future?
In an exclusive on-stage conversation, legendary comic writer Geoff Johns and celebrated comic artist Jim Lee, will be interviewed by journalist Geoff Boucher, who is celebrating his 20th year at the Los Angeles Times and has become a high-profile figure in genre culture as the creator of the award-winning Hero Complex website.
Johns and Lee will be making comic book publishing news at the festival panel. Their appearance will be followed by a tribute to Richard Donner, screenings of both "Superman" and "Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut" and a Q&A with the famed filmmaker.
Single-day tickets are available for festival, which runs June 9-12 at the Chinese Six Theatre at famous cross-street of Hollywood and Highland. A limited number of discounted four-day passes are also available. Other special guests include Warren Beatty, Jon Favreau, Nicolas Meyer, Damon Lindleof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. More guests and programs will be announced soon
