New York Comic Con 2014: The Daredevil Line Incident, the Real Story….

Rumor site Bleeding Cool reported that during Marvel‘s signing for Netflix‘s Daredevil, things went off the rails resulting in the cancellation of the event, posting the below video, and reporting that the signing was cancelled, or as reported “off.”

Taking to Facebook to correct the record, AC Boardwalk Con and Promoguys Marketing Group’s Michael D’Alessio corrected the reporting:

Let me clear up BLEEDING COOL’s misunderstanding:

1) we made multiple announcements that you can not queue up to draw a ticket to see if you win a signing with DareDevil cast until 10:00. We do this for every drawing. This is to make it fairer for every attendee not just the ones who are able to get in at 9:30.

2) we removed anyone online before 10:00 and told them not to waste their time waiting as we won’t let them online before 10.

3) when the drawing started at 10:03, the line was 12 people wide. It’s supposed to be single file. There were kids, people with disabilities, pregnant women, etc. There were people with backpacks bumping into everyone and pushing. They were lined along the Signing Station which has TVs mounted to it. The pushing resulted in the structure to rock and the TVs started to sway. IMMEDIATELY we were in the aisles and telling people to back away from the signing stations and that they had to single file and to watch out for kids.
4) the majority of people would not move and argued they couldn’t move. They COULD move but didn’t want to move because they didn’t want their place in “line” lost.
5) I told everyone that if they didn’t stop pushing that someone would get hurt or the structure may cause the TVs to come off of their mounts.
6) we asked for everyone to please disperse and we would start the line in 15 minutes only if the line was single file. Again people wouldn’t move and kept pushing and arguing. Multiple people told us they were getting shoved and asked for help from me and my staff.
7) I walked to the front of the line and a man was cursing a blue streak at me that he had a right to a ticket and that he wasn’t moving. I explained repeatedly about how they were in violation of safety standards and fire codes, and that lines had to be single file. He refused to listen (multiple people video taped this so please post). I explained again that there were children and people with disabilities that were in the crowd and we had to worry about their safety. He repeatedly ignored that and kept cursing that he had a right to be there and wasn’t moving.
8) after about 7 minutes of asking people to move into a single file, I announced we would postpone the drawing or cancel the drawing and distribute the tickets randomly if the crowd wouldn’t comply. They didn’t comply.
9) security came over and agreed with everything I and my team were saying and helped disperse the crowds.
10) people came up to me asking to please do the line over and when everyone dispersed we started the line again.

Mind you, never once was the signing canceled or threatened to be canceled.

Our job is to ensure the safety of everyone at the Marvel booth. Security was 100% in agreement with our actions.

We resumed the drawing at 10:15 and it went well after people complied.

During the signing we added in 2.5x the amount of people to be signed as we had tickets for. We pulled from the audience and everyone had a blast.

“REPORTERS” GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

 

Sounds like there were crowds, but things got settled eventually as opposed to being “too wild” and it being cancelled. It was off…. for about 15 minutes….

A commenter on BC’s own site refuted their reporting:

I was in a different Marvel line when this Daredevil drawing took place, and very little about this report is accurate. After event organizers opened the doors at 9:45, a hundred, maybe more, beelined for Marvel’s booth for the Daredevil autograph signing drawing. The people running Marvel’s booth said that the drawing would take place at 10 a.m., and asked those already in line to come back at 10. No one moved. Marvel booth organizers asked again, and then again, and then again. When that didn’t work, one of the men said that unless the line dispersed, the drawing would be canceled — again, the DRAWING, and not the EVENT, would be canceled. Those in line still didn’t disperse, and some — as you report — became downright unruly and caustic. Venue security were called and arrived, helping those at the Marvel booth handle the situation. It was announced that the drawing was canceled. Again, the DRAWING and not the EVENT. It was around 10:10 when this happened. Few, if any, of the people in line left. About 10 minutes or so later, Marvel was able to better organize the line and preceded to go through with the drawing. After the 75 tickets were pulled, the line fully dispersed. At the event itself, the cast of Daredevil signed for those 75 people in about 20 minutes, and Marvel then opened the signing line to others at their booth watching the signing take place. I’d wager that close to 200 people, and maybe more, met the cast and walked away with a signed poster. I believe Marvel made the right call, when it asked people to come back at 10 a.m., and I think Marvel again made the right call when it announced that the drawing would be canceled, as the group of people waiting for their shot at a ticket to the signing wrapped around the Marvel booth, past the We Love Fine and Marvel merchandise booths, and out onto areas bordering the nearby Image booth. Once the line became more manageable, Marvel went through the ticket giveaway. Sounds like BC is more interested in gotcha journalism than it is in reporting the facts.
