Maggie Q wrapped filming… Comic Con panel hint?

Earlier today Maggie Q (Tori) tweeted that she wrapped filming Divergent via Twitter. But did she also spill the beans on a Divergent panel at Comic Con? We have all been patiently waiting to hear if/when there will be a Divergent panel. According to her tweet, it sounds like it could be July 18th, which would make perfect sense since Summit Entertainment has had Hall H the past few years at SDCC, and famously kicked Comic Con off with Twilight. It seems only natural in my opinion to put Divergent in the spot that Twilight inhabited the past few years! Hopefully we will hear some official news SOON!

Insert sad face here. While this does mean that we are one day closer to the movie being released, it means no more set pictures to get excited for. Hopefully we will be getting some goodness as far as footage or maybe a teaser trailer in a few weeks at Comic Con!

Here is a picture of the Abnegation houses being demolished

On a similar note, Amy Newbold, who plays Molly tweeted today: “2nd to last day on#Divergent set!!! #EndisNear#Bittersweet #NextAdventureAwaits.”

Sad to see it coming to an end but excited for everything that lies ahead!
