Clooney makes surprise appearance
NEW YORK (AP) – Newly married George Clooney surprised fans with an appearance at New York Comic-Con on Thursday.
Fresh off his September 27 wedding to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in Venice, Italy, Clooney made a cameo on the Javits Center stage during a panel discussion for the upcoming Disney fantasy film, Tomorrowland.
To thunderous applause, Clooney told fans that it wasn’t lost on him “that I’m spending my honeymoon at Comic-Con.” He joked that after his widely panned Batman & Robin, he had been “de-invited” from Comic-Con: “Sorry about the nipples on the suit,” he said.
Disney premiered a teaser trailer at the event, a smaller, east coast edition of the sprawling Comic-Con in San Diego. Directed by Brad Bird and starring Britt Robertson, Tomorrowland is due out May 22, 2015.
