Newly-married George Clooney has surprised fans with an appearance at New York Comic-Con.

George, who married human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin on September 27 in Venice, Italy, walked on stage during a panel discussion for the upcoming Disney fantasy film Tomorrowland, in which he plays a hermit inventor.

"It's not lost on me that I'm spending my honeymoon at Comic-Con," George told the crowd to thunderous applause.

Panel moderator Chris Hardwick then asked the actor: "So what did you say, 'Honey we're going to Comic-Con?'."

"She was as confused as you all were," George said.

Before walking on stage, Disney showed the crowd a two-minute trailer of the film.

"We've been waiting on this for a year and a half and that's it," George told director Brad Bird. "I'm barely in the teaser."

Later George introduced an exclusive clip from the film that prominently showed him and Britt Robertson in an action sequence, calling the experience larger than anything he had ever done.

"We were all over the world for this film. Hugh (Laurie) and I got to get in trouble in the Bahamas. That was fun, two former television doctors," George told the crowd to prolonged laughter.

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

Hugh starred in House, while George appeared on ER.

George also hammed it up with references to superheroes. "Since I did Batman, I've been de-invited from Comic-Con. I met Adam West and apologised," he said.

Tomorrowland will be released in May.
