Both panels will screen footage from the upcoming films and feature a Q&A with members of the cast crew. Although the official panelist line-up for ‘Kick-Ass 2′ hasn’t been revealed yet, the ‘Riddick’ panel will feature Vin Diesel, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista and director David Twohy.
Columbia Pictures Panel: Columbia/Sony will be presenting three heavy-hitters during their panel, but the most notable of them is easily ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ which recently finished principle photography. It hasn’t been announced if there will be footage shown yet (but they’ll show something), but producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, director Marc Webb, and stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx and Dane DeHaan will be in attendance. ’Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2‘ will also be on hand, with the panel for the upcoming animated sequel will feature directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, along with actors Anna Farris and Terry Crews. Finally, the panel will feature the first look at the upcoming ‘RoboCop‘ remake, with director José Padilha and stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, and Samuel L. Jackson on hand for a Q&A.

Legendary Pictures: Although no guests have been officially announced, Legendary Pictures will present panels for their upcoming and eclectic slate of films. Their presentation includes ‘Godzilla,’ ‘Seventh Son,’ ‘300: Rise of an Empire,’ ‘Gravity‘ and ‘The LEGO Movie.’
Lionsgate Panel: The Lionsgate panel will feature new footage from both ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ and ‘I, Frankenstein,’ as well as appearances from currently unknown talent (although expect respective stars Jennifer Lawrence and Aaron Eckhart to show up).
Marvel Studios: ‘Thor: The Dark World‘ and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ will be the focus of Marvel’s panel, with the nearly finished former most likely showing significantly more footage than the just-started-filming latter. Marvel hasn’t announced any panelists yet, but they’ll most likely have plenty of surprise guests and special announcements regarding future films.
20th Century Fox Panel: The right-around-the-corner ‘The Wolverine‘ and ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ will be the chief focus of the Fox panel. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman are the only confirmed guests (so far) for the former, and director Matt Reeves and cast members Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell will be on hand for the latter. The official announcement also teases a “surprise” panel, which many are already assuming will be the first look at ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’
