On July 21-24, Comic-Con 2011 will set up at the San Diego Convention Center for a nerd-tastic orgy of comic books (obviously), video games, action films, and at least one nightmare-inducing cosplay pageant. If you plan on attending next weekend, keep in mind that MMA star/actress Gina Carano will be in the building on Friday, July 22nd, as part of a sneak-preview of her long-delayed film Haywire. The presentation will go down from 12:15-1:15 PST in Hall H, if that means anything to you.
According to Carano’s manager Scott Karp, the former “Face of Women’s MMA” is “starting to feel better” following her mysterious withdrawal from Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum, and may soon know about her fighting future. She is currently fielding several film offers.
