Morgan Spurlock has become a bit of a cult figure in documentary making since his breakthrough with SUPER SIZE ME back in 2004 and he’s not stopped for a minute with superb work including FREAKONOMICS and THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER SOLD. Spurlock returns with COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE and writes again with Jeremy Chilnick but also adds THE AVENGERS director Joss Whedon into proceedings, a man who is very familiar with the event.
COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE enters the world-famous San Diego Comic-Con in California. Not only is it a behind-the-scenes look at the fans who gather in their thousands but it specifically follows 5 people to show what it’s all really all about. The documentary features Kevin Smith, Seth Rogen and Stan Lee to name a just a few. It looks to be a really good insight to the crazy world of Comic-Con which was also briefly highlighted in Nick Frost and Simon Pegg’s PAUL.

COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year but has now been taken on by Wrekin Hill. It’s due to be released in the US in theatres on April 6th and we’ll hopefully have it around the same time.
