Activations (live events that use activities to immerse fans in beloved TV shows and movies) are an integral part of the Comic-Con experience.
One such activation is Netflix’s The Gray Man Training Program, which can be easily seen by the smoke coming out of the ABM parking lot at the corner of 1st Ave and Island Ave.
No Netflix’s action film “The Gray Man”, which premieres on July 22, a CIA agent (Ryan Gosling) discovers secrets that make him be killed by an agent (Chris Evans) and his team of assassins. The film is based on the books of Mark Greaney.
This experience, presented outside of Comic-Con International on Wednesday 19 July, aims to mimic a chase scene that includes many different types of vehicles, stunts and shootings in Prague.
A timed obstacle course, the activation is said to test “skill, strength and speed,” according to organizers.
At the beginning, participants receive a medallion with a “data chip” inside. The first two tests take place inside a crashed tram car, with only 30 seconds to pass each. The last test occurs when participants are instructed to run across the roof of the car and place their medallions in a container, and are presented with a video of themselves doing that sprint to preserve.
As the first SDCC in person comes in full swing, this activation is one of the few to be found outside the San Diego Convention Center.
Here’s where to find some more. (Note: Some of these activations, while out of the convention center, may still require a Comic-Con badge).
