San Diego Comic-Con Highlights

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it out to San Diego for Comic-Con this year. Fortunately, I was glued to the internet all weekend as news was coming down the pipe and have these cool movie bits to share with you.

The Avengers movie poster!

This A with the arrow logo isn’t there to excite the average film goer. It’s for the diehards, the fanboys, the guys and girls who immediately know what that A with the arrow is as soon as they see it. I’m one of them and I’m excited. And it says Assemble. I’m even more excited!

Big thanks to Dave Tomko for leading me to this…the full Avengers team poster! (From
Summer 2012 seriously can’t get here soon enough!

DC is adapting The Dark Knight Returns into an animated feature!

This has the potential of being HUGE…and the potential for being a huge letdown. But man, could you ask for better source material than Frank Miller’s classic from the 1980s. This is to me,  and I’m sure other fans as well, THE Batman story. DC has improved a lot lately with their animated offerings and their latest Batman one, Under the Red Hood, is their best in show. Hopefully they pull out all the stops for The Dark Knight Returns. Needless to say, when this is released, I will definitely be reviewing it. Is it too early to add it to my queue?

The surprise at The Amazing Spider-Man movie panel!

This was the show stealer at San Diego. If you haven’t watched this clip, WATCH IT NOW! It’s definitely my favorite clip from the con.

I can’t wait for next summer’s movies!

Between The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises, I am ridiculously psyched for next summer’s movies! Joss on Avengers! More Bale/Nolan Batman! And two of my favorite new actors, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield starring in Spider-Man! Can it be Summer 2012 now, please?

I do plan on being at New York Comic Con in October, where I’ll bring you first hand accounts of movie announcements and previews, of which I’m sure there will be plenty!
