They had the fairy-tale wedding in Venice and now George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin  are probably off sunning themselves on a deserted paradise beach.

Wrong – the newly-married Clooney instead turned up at Comic Con in New York on Thursday. The 53-year-old actor surprised the audience when he took to the stage for Disney’s Tomorrowland panel.

And the timing didn't go unnoticed by Clooney, who jokingly remarked: "It is not lost on me that I’m spending my honeymoon at Comic-Con."

The Oscar-winner, who married human rights lawyer Alamuddin on 27 September, was asked by panel moderator Chris Hardwick: “So what did you say, 'Honey we're going to Comic-Con.”'

To which he replied: “She was as confused as you all were.” 

Clooney plays a hermit traveller in the film, which is directed by Brad Bird and also stars Hugh Laurie and Britt Robertson.

The science-fiction movie depicts a curious teen (Robertson) and former boy-genius inventor (Clooney) seeking to unravel the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

Clooney introduced an exclusive clip from the film showing the pair in action and said Tomorrowland was “larger” than many other projects he had worked on.


He also spoke about his antics with co-star Laurie, referencing their past roles as doctors in House and ER.

“We were all over the world for this film. Hugh and I got to get in trouble in the Bahamas. That was fun, two former television doctors," he said.

"Bring on that McSteamy guy, we'll take on all of them TV doctors."

Tomorrowland is scheduled for release on 22 May in the US.
