"There is a booth at #SDCC asking for signatures for a petition to have a John Carter sequel," someone in San Diego tweeted today. And we almost couldn't believe it, so we did some digging, and yep, according to related site John Carter Two, they are indeed at Comic-Con, sharing a table where they are not only making sure to keep hope alive, but doing some giveaways for "John Carter"-related gear as well. In essence, they are marketing the movie long after Disney has given up, and you would hope the studio is paying attention, if only to throw them swag for their trouble.
There is an earnest sadness about this whole effort, which will largely be futile in the end. Frankly, these are kinds of fans Disney could've used before the movie came out, not after. But if you're one of the few who thinks a studio will spend a couple hundred million on a blockbuster with Taylor Kitsch in the lead, click above and let your voice be heard. Or put one of these posters on your Facebook page to get the word out.
