Marvel Studios is proving why they are the top dog when it comes to Hall H presentations (and why Robert Downey Jr. is the undisputed King of Comic-Con). Downey took to the stage to present Iron Man 3 footage, which Eric will recap in great detail in his live blog (it looked amazing), there was one huge news: Sir Ben Kingsley is playing The Mandarin.
There's tons of news coming out of Marvel's Comic Con panel as we speak, and we'll be bringing it all to you as it comes to us, but here are two small ones to start things off. The studio has announced official titles for two of their upcoming sequels! Coming November 8 next year will be Thor: The Dark World, and then April 4 of 2014 we'll be getting Captain America: The Winter Soldier
And though Marvel didn't announce Ant-Man as one of the four titles they have in active development, they did finally confirm many fan hopes. Not only did they confirm Wright's test footage, they showed it to the crowd, and had Wright himself up on stage to introduce it
The evidence seemed pretty solid, especially since Marvel had confirmed they were planning a secret new project, and now we've learned that it's for real: Marvel indeed announced in Hall H today that they're planning an animated Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and they've set an official August 1, 2014 release date for it
Two years ago Marvel Studios absolutely blew the doors off of Hall H at San Diego Comic Con 2010. In addition to showing off the first footage from both Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger (despite the fact that the latter was only a week into production), The Avengers were assembled for the first time ever and it was announced that Jeremy Renner would play Hawkeye and that Joss Whedon would write and direct...
Everyone will be able to get a close look at the movie for themselves when the Man of Steel teaser runs in front of The Dark Knight Rises next week, but in the meanwhile, the movie's Comic Con poster has gone online, and yes, it's got plenty of that dark tone to go around too. Take a look below
Itís been nearly a decade since Peter Jackson took us back to the world of Middle Earth, but that streak ends this December. Adapting the first novel written by J.R.R. Tolkein, the legendary New Zealand director will be taking us on an unexpected journey as Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, and a gang of dwarfs head to the Lonely Mountain to reclaim a long lost treasure from a dragon named Smaug.
To be honest, it would have been more surprising if they didn't pair the Superman movie trailer with Batman-- after all, they're not just from the same DC Comics universe, but Christopher Nolan is serving as a producer on Man of Steel, and Warner Bros. is clearly trying to position Superman as their new marquee hero
2011 was the year of Green Lantern, 2012 is the year of The Dark Knight Rises, and 2013 will be the year of Man of Steel. Superman has been absent from cinemas since 2006ís Superman Returns and fans have been yearning to see the original superhero back on the big screen. Next year director Zack Snyder will be taking us back the city of Metropolis...
It's kind of funny to pair up Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman for interviews about The Hobbit. They're both stars of the movie, of course, with Serkis returning to his role as Gollum and Freeman stepping in as Bilbo Baggins, and have plenty to say about their return to Middle Earth
I covered Django Unchained interviews with Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Walton Goggins and Christoph Waltz. The latter talked to us about the reports that Tarantino has changed his script during the filming process, leading to possible delays.
today in Hall H, after the Pacific Rim presentation ended, a surprise trailer for Godzilla screened for the thrilled audience. They also announced that Gareth Edwards, who formerly made the indie Monsters, will be directing the Godzilla remake-- then Edwards himself took the stage in front of an ecstatic crowd
Guillermo Del Toro loves Comic Con. Every year that he has a film coming out the Hellboy director his way down to San Diego to visit his fans and give them a glimpse at his new project. Fortunately for us, 2012 is one of those years. For the last few months Del Toro has been hard at work putting together Pacific Rim his new sci-fi epic about giant robots fighting against giant monsters for the future of mankind.
A couple months ago, before any trailers or footage came online, Quentin Tarantino took a trip to the Cannes Film Festival to present the first look at his upcoming film Django Unchained. And now that footage has made its way to Comic Con.
I have just arrived in the absolutely packed convention center and I am now just waiting for the panel to begin. We still donít know who exactly will be on hand to answer questions and show off footage, but if you refresh this article and follow our live blog below I will guide you through every minute. And come back later to read full descriptions of all the Django Unchained footage we get to see!
