The Comic-Con 2012 Warner Bros. panel on Saturday in Hall H is one of the biggest gatherings we've seen so far here in San Diego. Yeah, 'Resident Evil' and Disney pretty much blew us away, but Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures brought together three top dogs to Comic-Con's largest space -- 'Pacific Rim,' 'Man of Steel' and 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.'
After Warner Bros. released 10 snapshots from 'The Hobbit' movie and Peter Jackson unveiled the latest poster for Comic-Con 2012 on his Facebook page, fans of both the book and 'The Lord of the Rings' franchise have been waiting to get their hands on the next sneak peek. Well, it's finally here in the form of a lengthy scrolling image that reveals 10 scenes from the upcoming movie (the first two are shown above).
Hold on a second...Bane is in this movie? And Catwoman? Well, how did they manage to sneak those guys in? It's not like anyone knew what the story of 'The Dark Knight Rises' was going to be about because no new synopsis was ever released. Now that one finally has, this movie sounds like it could be all over for Batman!
At this point it's fair to say Marvel is five steps ahead of DC in the movie universe. Marvel built a solid foundation, and inter-weaved their most popular characters together into 'The Avengers,' which has made over a billion dollars worldwide. So what is DC and Warner Bros trying to do? Pummel Marvel to the ground, naturally.
Warner Bros. is looking for the next hot property and they've just snagged the rights to use 'The Guinness Book of World Records' as a basis for an action-adventure type motion picture.
It's coming. June has arrived, and the last we checked July was sure to follow. It can mean only one thing. Comic-Con 2012 is nearly upon us! So whether you're there for the comics or the culture, TV's presence at the big Con only grows from year to year. Now that Warner Bros. is the first to announce their plans for San Diego 2012, what geek-friendly TV shows have moved on up to the big show, and when can fans see them?
It's been nearly 14 long years since 'Lethal Weapon 4' came out, and while there was always talk about a fifth installment, it never came to pass. But now director Richard Donner has spoken out about what could have been if cameras had rolled on 'Lethal Weapon 5.'
A British pub named after 'The Hobbit' was threatened with legal action by the film's production company (who owns the copyright) and faced changing its name and removing all references to J.R.R. Tolkien's work from its walls. But if it's up to the stars of the the upcoming fourth 'Lord of the Rings' film, the pub will stay just as it is.
