Aw, it's sweet to see the cast supporting each other. And the photo is so lovely - makes me want to build a fire and grab a book too.

It's a key role, too!

ETA: From the man himself...

 

Yay! Jensen in a Western....and maybe a bad guy or good guy doing the wrong thing?  Can't wait!

He's so funny and humble. I ♥ him. He's really checking stuff off that bucket list post-SPN and I could not be more thrilled for him (or me).

He's a US Marshall, so probably a good guy doing the 'wrong thing' because it's his job (if the bad guy(s) isn't really a bad guy(s) but the law says he is).

I'm not a big fan of westerns but I will definitely be watching! I also liked that the Deadline article added this bit: 

Ackles, who is coming off the incredible run by the hit CW show Supernatural, recently landed the huge role of Soldier Boy in the highly-anticipated third season of the Emmy nominated The Boys.

Filming has already started for Rust and he's still finding time to attend a SPN convention this weekend.

He really is something else.

I'm so proud to be a fan of his and so very happy to see him so sought after in his field and working with some of the best in this latest project-not surprised in the least by any of this, tbh, but again just so happy to see his cup runneth over in the way that it has since Supernatural ended. 

And I'm betting that this is still just the beginning for him.

Our "secret" is out and it just feels so good to be a Jensen fan these days-finally!

Hallelujah!!

So this guy had a role in Better Call Saul.

I'm loving that Jensen seems to somehow have wound up working with actors from that show and, hopefully, with writers and producers of that ilk.

I've always dreamed of him working on a Vince Gilligan production, and maybe reuniting with John Shiban.

He's also working with Travis Fimmel from Vikings. As a fan of that show its a pairing I never knew I needed. 

Also the BTS people (not sure if the its writers or producers or both) are the ones that did The Trial of the Chicago 7.  Which got both critical acclaim and won both golden globes and SAG awards.

I can't believe all this glory comes out when I'm out of town taking care of a friend in the hospital. Such good news! And I LOVE Travis Fimmel and Frances Fisher, so this is very exciting for me. The boy has had little downtime between the end of shooting The Boys and now this movie. But this is exactly the way I hoped his post-SPN career would go.

Those panels were like a welcome breath of fresh air after months of being stuck inside. Jensen was so happy to be there and excited to talk about his new projects, as well as SPN and the finale. 

Funny, it never really occured to me that *he* might have needed to talk about it as much as we did. I remain convinced he was never okay with it. I love that he insisted upon and fought for Dean dying on his feet. Too bad Singer didn't listen to him about anything else.

Oh, he had a blast pretending he didn't know anything about a gun or riding horses.  May be just a little payback for that.  lol

I also loved how he kept saying I don't remember, ask Jared.  In other words, I'm not saying anything more.  You can interpret it how you will?

It makes me crazy that Jensen didn't stand up for himself more, though, because it's clear of the few times he did, he could affect change. There was no Supernatural without Dean Winchester.

Listening to how excited Jensen is talking about all his other projects - The Boys, Rust, and the animated DC/Batman 'verse - was everything I wanted to hear from him. And my god he was stunning on top of it all!

I think he had to pick and choose his battles and he's the only one who could see what he could and could not get them to budge on.  He wouldn't want to get a reputation for being difficult.

I haven't had a chance to watch the panels in whole, but have seen many clips.

Did he say "Ask Jared" in the solo panel or the gold?

In the solo panel. Someone asked about the what they added to the script that wasnt' there, like the pilot clothes.  Jensen said ask Jared, he would remember better.

Got to say I was disappointed that nothing about the Prequel came up, particularly because I hoped that WB tour the Ackles family had meant he had another meeting with the WB. I can understand why considering what a debacle the announcement was and now I doubt we will hear anything at all unless they confirm a pilot getting filmed. I am glad he is doing more Batman though, it would be great if he was the new voice of Batman for awhile.

The most hopeful thing I got from it was Jensen hinting about the show coming back in a few years. He has a way of telling people what is going on without them realizing it....like the long halloween tweet. He has been pretty consistent about what his plan is, 3 to 5 year break then back to 6 episode seasons for however long they want to do it. Still means a long wait before we ever hear anything official one way or the other.

He kind of did it in both.  Which is why I felt that his oh I loved the final wasn't totally true.  If you are saying Jared answer, that says all you need to say.  Without going on record for not loving it, he did.  I mean, you remember something if you loved it.  You don't, if it's something you want to forget.

The only point he felt worth talking about was that he wanted Dean standing vs being cradled by Sam.  A very different scene, and he was right.  It just goes to show how group think was rampant on Supernatural.  The lone wolf was Jensen.

Dean on the ground cradled by Sam makes it about Sam.  He's the one in charge of the scene and the main focus.  Dean on his feet (and comforting Sam) makes it about him and how he's holding himself together, showing his strength.  Sam is just reacting, not leading.  Bravo, Jensen!  I'm surprised they allowed it.

Yahtzee.

Nothing about Dabb's finale was supposed to be about Dean, and Jensen knew it. Even the original heaven scene wasn't about Dean at all either - it was about Dean bringing the princess into the Roadhouse to be fawned over by friends and family. Yuck. So good on him saying it's this way or no way WRT the barn scene. He had and deserved to take something for himself and his character out of that garbage dump of a send-off.

I have to admit I loved it when Jensen first mentioned the finale in his panel and got lots of groans and boos. He laughed it off and made a joke out of it, but I think it was a lot of validation for himself as well since he was the one "lone wolf", as 7kstar says, who didn't like it from the start. And both Misha and Jim Beaver have said before they all know it wasn't exactly a well-received finale.

Jensen continued to make it clear in his panel too that he doesn't see the finale as the end, and still hints of an eventual "fix-it" in the future. He's been very consistent about wanting to revisit the series a few years down the line.

I felt the exact opposite when the crowd booed Jensen about the finale. I definitely got the impression that he was a little surprised and maybe a little hurt by that reaction. I also disagree about the finale being all about Sam if Dean had been on the ground. Although I did agree with Jensen that Dean should go out on his feet the most traumatizing death in the entire series for me was Dean's death in S9. It never even entered my mind that he was being cradled by Sam....Dean was DEAD and he turned into a DEMON! I was distraught for months.  

The way Jensen described the original ending sounded great.

I've watched half of his solo panel so far and I also think that he emitted a bit of satisfaction at the crowd's reaction to his bringing  it up. I further think that any disappointment he might have shown was more for the lost possibilities in it-and not just the ones he pointed out as covid-related because he also mentioned that when he was reading the script for the first time and realized that they were killing Dean off "before the second commercial break", as he put it, he knew that there were going to be more than a few angry/irate reactions.

And he definitely did not seem happy or impressed at all to me with the manner that Dean died, even rolling his eyes at someone coming to the convention with a piece of rebar and showing it to him. He likened it to going to a Superman convention with a piece of kryptonite in their pocket. 

I think the story about his standing up to Singer and insisting that Dean die on his feet instead of on the ground was his way of letting his own fandom know that he tried as hard as he could to get something more for Dean and himself and for no few of his fans, too, out of that shit of a finale when literally no one bts would stand with him(or his character) or back him or his less-than-impressed feelings on it up when the idea was first pitched to them.

Now whether he knew that Dean was going to be killed off that early from the get-go is an unknown, but he was very clearly unhappy about it when he first read the script and that came through loud and clear in the panel, AFAIC and IMO. 

I truly think that even he feels like his one and only win for himself and Dean  and, again, no few in the Dean fandom, out of the whole debacle was in his having won the right to have been able to show Dean dying on his feet, instead of on the ground and that's the biggest reason that he told that story, again, IMO.

ETA: And I have to agree with Gonzosgirrl that it seemed like he felt that he really needed to say those things, too, and who could have guessed at that.

I also think he was pretty straightforward about his shock that he died on page 20 of the script, i.e, less than half way through the episode. His WTF? reaction at that speaks volumes. I also agree he got some satisfaction from the boos/groans. The only real praise he had for it was the reaction they got from the crew while filming the death scene. 😢 

(This is what happened in the panel - hope it's okay for this thread. If not I will move to the finale thread.)

I can’t speak to his motivations, but my reaction to his story was that he has an excellent director’s eye. That scene would not have been nearly as powerful if Dean had been on the ground. Not for me anyway. So I really appreciate that Jensen fought for that view of the scene.

So this is going around on SM right now (seems valid). Looks like Creation is going to crack down on Destiel/shipping questions. I get the feeling that Jensen finally put his foot down. If he isn't having any fun I can't see him attending anymore SPN conventions. Jared gets mostly mental health q's and Jensen always has to be on his toes for the inevitable D question (and that really odd if Jack was a girl question).

Jensen has The Boys, movies, animated Batman, brewery and his production company. Seems like his plate is pretty full. Same with Jared. If Creation can't get a handle on this they might just move on.

I don't believe for a minute Jensen asked to stop the Destiel questions.  He's never shied away from answering them, the freaks just don't like what he has to say. I saw the "censorship" clip, and whatever the reason the handler spoke up, she barely got a word out before the person questioned her, and Misha said it was ok. Why were they even filming the person asking? Seemed  almost like a set up. Regardless,  I don't think Jensen had anything to do with it.

ETA: once again Jensen gets flak for something involving Misha and his fans.

I'm at a loss to understand why we need to find an actor responsible for something social media says Creation may or may not be doing.

I don't know or care who made the decision (if it was indeed made!)  Personally, I'd be happy without any more Destiel questions--not that I have anything against Destiel, just that it seems the question has been answered definitively by Jensen, many, many times.  Who was it who said the definition of insanity was to do the same thing over and over and expect different results?  And badgering or tricking people into saying what you want to hear doesn't mean anything, and is very unfair to the actors.

If it were my call, I'd say questions related to canon should be good to go, and noncanonical ship questions (like Wincest, reciprocated Destiel, any other noncanonical ships like Dean/Benny or Dean/Ellen, etc) should be off-limits. The one that seems to have started the controversy (it was "When did Dean know that Castiel was in love with him?", right?) seems like a normal question to ask about a love confession on a show. Ie, did he have any inkling prior to that moment, that sort of thing. Things about Dean potentially reciprocating, though, don't need to be asked again. 

That said, it's not up to me. But I don't see the point regardless in speculating in a fan-warrish way about whether an actor spurred a decision that may or may not have been made by the con. There's no evidence one way or another.

It's weird how everyone is blaming JP for not letting JA answer when JA answered the question completely before JP started his really long convoluted take on "love who you want."

Why does no one complaining about JA being silenced actually listen when he speaks. Also, why didn't anyone ask a confession scene question in his solo panel? Because then they would actually have to listen to his answer?

Why is everything MC says off-the-record treated as canon written on a God tablet, and anything JA says attributed to NDAs or his supposed h*phobia?

I also feel bad for JP getting MH questions. He's not a professional? He can talk about his own struggles but is he really someone who can advise others?

Even if I care more about Dean/JA, I acknowledge that Dean wouldn't be the  Dean I fangirl for if there was no Sam. And I think JP is an excellent Sam. (Can't really imagine another actor for that role.) There are interesting questions to ask JP about Sam.

Unfortunately, 'interesting questions' went out the window a long time ago in favour of 'pranks' and attempted 'Gotcha!' questions from people who will only hear one answer, no matter what is said.

IMO, Jensen's answer about when Dean 'knew' is the correct one. "Dean" knew when Cas said the words in 15x18 and not before, and Jensen knows this because that's how he played him. 

I blame Misha 100% for the ongoing insanity of Destiel (in the romantic, wants to jump his bones sense). He stokes that fire every chance he gets if it seems he'll get some more mileage out of it. Funny that he gives a different answer when he is actually in the same building as Jensen. That tells me it's not about his convictions - it's about pandering to the fanbase that pays his bills.

But the bottom line (for me) is, the fault lies with Dabb and Berens, who wrote that mess knowing full well what it would engender. IMO they are both frustrated, petty, small men who took the little bit of power they had and used it to punish someone who is their superior in every single way.

I have mostly been able to avoid all the noise this con caused on social media. Unfortunately somebody I know re-blogged a tumblr post that was, quite frankly, terrifying. Like, actual calls for violence against Jensen for disappointing them in their fantasies. I hope that Dabb and Berens both rot, and if anything ever does happen, that they are all held accountable for it.

I only paid attention to the Jensen solo and gold panel. I'm a little tired of Misha's and Jared's schtick. I know their fans love it so I don't blame anyone but I get most everything I want from Jensen's part. I really wish Jensen and Jared would do separate panels and do the gold panel together. Half (sometime more) of J2's panels are jokes, tangents and misunderstandings. 

I'm not surprised that there was some blowback on twitter over the heavenly not romantic love statements. I actually thought it was going to be worse. I wouldn't be surprised if Creation is banning questions. I don't want to think Prequel questions, Destiel questions and finale questions have or will be banned but it might be inevitable if it harms the cons. 

Question for anyone that watched all the panels. Did Jared/Misha/Jim get any questions or boos on the finale? When everything was ending Jared thought it was one of the best episodes they had ever done, Misha had to do a public apology for being insensitive and Jim got pretty surly over all the twitter hate.  Now that time has passed, did their opinions on the ending change or were they surprised at some of the reactions some fans still have? It's pretty obvious that Jensen's opinions haven't changed.

It feels like the shippers in the fandom have only become worse since the finale. I saw a few posts on Twitter and was blown away at how out of control people are. JA did the best he could with that question. Some people seem to have no respect for the choices he made when playing Dean. And JP stumbled around a bit but JA agreed w him that their thoughts were that it was not a romantic or sexual love. It was clumsy and offensive in some ways but the greater point stands, I think. Misha makes trouble. Anyway, I think if people want conventions to continue, they’ll rein in their behavior. The threats and whatnot sent to the actor SM accounts are insane.
