In the past decade of Comic Con, there was a surprising massive void: the Harry Potter franchise. Perhaps it was Warner Bros attempt to keep the series as least blockbuster as possible but during the ten years where the series catapulted into a worldwide phenomenon, the films (nor books) made a dent at one of the biggest fan events of the year. (Fans hosted their own panel in 2010 and actor Tom Felton helped promote Deathly Hallows.) PotterTalk wondered what epic moments would've been taken place if Comic Con had a bit more magical....
Scared Potter? We wish we could have seen a platinum blond Draco Malfoy duel against snake-hearing Harry Potter in "a war of words". Fans are surprised with a panel between the Slytherins led by Tom Felton and the Gryffindors led by Daniel Radcliffe. Maybe Kenneth Brannagh and/or Alan Rickman served as question and answer mediator. Yes, we wish.
First Look at Voldemort. Four epic books followed with their adaptations, and the boy who lived is finally coming face to face with the Dark Lord in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. With Ralph Fiennes cast as He Who Shall Not Be Named a special treat would await fans with first look at Voldemort. And perhaps a sneak peak of the Gryffindor student battling against the legendary Slytherin.
Farewell to a Headmaster. Devastation strikes with the inevitable loss of Dumbledore. In Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince we come to that all-too depressing death of one of the series greatest and most favorite characters. Perhaps a retrospective panel where we raise our wands in respect and silence to one of Hogwart's most notable headmasters is in order.
Second Installment to Deathly Hallows. Almost 800 pages long. The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The Battle of Hogwarts. The epic and magical epilogue. How would the final Harry Potter book be adapted to the big screen in just one film? It couldn't be. So a big announcement is made that there will be a second installment to the Deathly Hallows. *cue applause*
