Amazon Prime Video has a San Diego Comic Con takeover with Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Fan Experience!
The four day geekfest is giving Amazon the opportunity to bring old friends and introduce new ones to the international comic con! They have one panel with creators and cast members including Carlton Cuse, showrunner and Executive Producer of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan; Ben Edlund creator of The Tick; Sam Esmail director of Homecoming; Neil Gaiman creator, writer, and showrunner of Good Omens; Gale Anne Hurd Executive Producer of Lore; and Naren Shankar showrunner of The Expanse. The second panel is with The Man in the High Castle Executive Producers Isa Dick Hackett and Daniel Percival; and cast members Alexa Davalos, Rufus Sewell, Jason O’Mara, and Stephen Root.
“We’re thrilled to bring such a diverse group of creators to SDCC and give fans an exclusive sneak peek at what’s to come for these highly-anticipated shows,” said Mike Benson, Head of Marketing, Amazon Studios. “Our activation for Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is our most ambitious to date and will be one of the must-see events of Comic-Con.”
It’s not comic con without a great fan experience and Amazon is gong to introduce everyone to Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan premiering this August. The Jack Ryan immersive escape room experience will test your mettle to see if you have what it takes to be a hero!
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Fan Experience
At the Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan fan experience, Comic-Con attendees will step into the world of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and be thrust into a dangerous field assignment that turns them into unexpected heroes. Visitors will complete the Jack Ryan Training Field by infiltrating, fighting and evading the enemy to gain full field clearance. They will then use that training to help Jack Ryan himself in Dark Ops, a groundbreaking escape room that recreates the pilot episode of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. Attendees can also explore the Middle Eastern bazaar which has assignments to be completed at every turn, watch a live leaderboard and pick up some iconic Jack Ryan swag.
The Jack Ryan Training Field is a hyper-reality virtual reality spy experience where participants can prove they have what it takes to be a hero. Heroes in training will go through a series of thrilling true-to-life experiences including rappelling from a helicopter, traversing between dangerous high rise buildings, and zip-lining to ground level. Created with MediaMonks, the Jack Ryan Training Field stands over 30 feet tall and uses the latest Optitrack 4D and Oculus Rift technology to make visitors physically feel as if they were thrust into the action.
Dark Ops is a first of its kind escape room, created by AKQA and Unit 9, which lets participants live the first episode of Jack Ryan. Participants will be tasked with offering remote assistance to Jack Ryan in Dark Ops, where teams of rookie analysts will have to dig deep to uncover a plot of double-crossing, top secret information and an extremist plot set to be put in motion at any minute.
The Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan fan experience will take place Thursday, July 19 through Sunday, July 22 at the park located at the corner of 1st street and Martin Luther King Promenade – directly across from the San Diego Convention Center. It will be open daily from 9 am to 7 pm Thursday through Saturday, and 9 am to 5 pm on Sunday.

Tonight is the Los Angeles premiere of Batman: Bad Blood (clip)!
I am looking forward to interviewing the entire Bat “family” on the red carpet — Jason O’Mara (Batman), Yvonne Strahovski (Batwoman), Sean Maher (Nightwing), Gaius Charles (Batwing) and Stuart Allan (Robin) — along with Travis Willingham (voice of The Heretic) and filmmakers: producer James Tucker, director Jay Oliva and character designer Phil Bourassa at the Paley Center for Media (465 North Beverly Drive) as well as seeing the screening at 7pm!

About Batman: Bad Blood …
The mysterious disappearance of Batman (voice of Jason O’Mara), coupled with the emergence of powerful and malevolent new villains in Gotham City, force Nightwing (Maher) and Robin (Stuart Allan) to take crime-fighting into their own hands – while simultaneously searching for their missing leader. They’re not alone for long. New super heroes Batwoman (Strahovski) and Batwing (Gaius Charles) – each armed with her/his own sensibilities, physical abilities and crime-fighting tools – arrive in Gotham to assist in the cause. As this new “family” strives to find its own dynamic, chilling clues lead the group to suspect the Dark Knight may have gone over to the dark side. It’s up to the entire Bat team to uncover the truth before Gotham City falls prey to its greatest threat yet.
Produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Batman: Bad Blood will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on February 2, 2016.
