Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, the dynamic producing/writing duo known as “Darlton,” will be appearing at Comic-Con this Saturday, July 25, 2009, from 11:00 am to Noon. This will likely be a bittersweet event, because LOST has presented a panel every year at Comic-Con since 2004, the summer before LOST premiered, and this summer will be the very last time.
In an interview a few days ago, TV Guide asked Darlton if they were going to answer questions about Season 6:
Carlton Cuse: We’ll answer some questions and we’ll be evasive about some things. I mean, again, we want to find the fine line between teasing and spoiling.
Damon Lindelof: Up until Comic-Con, we’ve been answering those questions by saying, “We’re not talking about Season 6 until Comic-Con.” Now we will no longer be able to use that as an excuse so we’ll at the very least have to find a new dodge.
With 6,500 fans packing the hall, you can be sure there will be plenty of live reports going out via Twitter. Good places to check are #lost, #sdcc, #comiccon, and #comic-con.
When the video comes out, I’ll be looking for highlights and funny lines.
Speaking of funny lines, here’s a clip from last year’s event. Damon and Carlton were talking about a special feature on the Season 4 DVD which presented the flash-forwards in linear order, when they themselves suddenly flash-forwarded to the future:
… with my left eye! Ha ha, very good.
