Movie studios are lining up for their Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con International next month. And, fans will be eager with its annual presentation.
Warner Brothers Pictures reserved a three-hour block for a long presentation at SDCC. It is likely that “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” will anchor WB’s panel and possibly there will be a first look to Superman’s “Man of Steel.”
Christopher Nolan’s last Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” will probably be a question mark since it will premiere the following weekend after Comic-Con. Most movie studios tend to reserve their promotional activities elsewhere close to a film’s release date, but anything can still happen. Then again, Warner Brothers had never showed any Batman preview to Comic-Con in previous years.
Legendary Pictures, a studio oftentimes work with Warner Brothers, may plan to unveil Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim,” according to Variety’s sources. The studios will not confirm or deny this speculation.
Without Disney’s D23 fan convention this year, it is expected Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios to make a presentation at this year’s Comic-Con. With a lot of info being reported by Latino-Review here, it is expected there will be a first look into “Iron Man 3.” However, it’s too early to tell if audiences will have a glimpse into “Captain America 2” or “Thor 2” since they are in the really, really early stages.
Sony Pictures will return for a panel presentation and it expected the studio to showcase “Total Recall” remake and “Resident Evil: Retribution.”
As for the newly merged Lionsgate-Summit studio, the crazy teen fans will have high expectations for the last “Twilight” film at Comic-Con.
DreamWorks Animation will be skipping the extraordinary Hall H presentation for a much smaller animation presentation for the convention. And DreamWorks, itself, will skip the convention entirely since “Robopocalypse” has been postponed to 2014.
There are big question marks for this year’s Comic-Con presentations.
Universal Pictures’ presence is up in the air for this year’s convention. Variety speculated the studio may show up since it has an upcoming comic book “R.I.P.D.” due out next summer.
However, Paramount Studios may sit this year’s festivities out since “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” is delayed due to 3D conversion and “World War Z” headed back for reshoots. The biggest disappointment to fans will be no first look into “Star Trek 2.” So will there be Khan or what? Hopefully, Paramount Studios will change their minds.
And finally, Relativity Media and Twentieth Century Fox will definitely skip this year’s Comic-Con previews.
Please note these are speculative lineup presentations for movie studios at Comic-Con. Many films may be added and some studios may still change their minds about the attendance.
Latino-Review will have a reporter to give the readers a preview look into the Comic-Con presentation next month.
