Early Run Down of Movies Making an Appearance at San Diego Comic Con 2012

There’s two things I really like about San Diego Comic Con. 1. Cosplay tits. Everywhere you look there’s giant boobs spilling out of tight costumes. It’s  a real feast of flesh (see Power Girl above) 2. Getting a first look at footage from upcoming blockbusters and listening to creatives/performers talk about their films. I dunno if it’s all really worth waiting in line for 4+ hours (oh yes, there’s a lot of waiting. A LOT!), but it’s certainly an exclusive, very personal experience. An involving one to say the least. Speaking of the latter…

While Hollywood studios are still in the process of securing down their convention plans, the run down of panel presentations trickling in thus far are proving SDCC 2012  is gonna be a epic year.

So…who in Hollywood is coming to Comic Con?

Marvel Studios is planning, well… to be marvelous. Some early work from Iron Man 3 will be presented. Word has it they’ll end up officially announcing those two secret film projects in development. Disney will be showing off Wreck-It Ralph and Oz: The Great and Powerful and maybe… just maybe The Lone Ranger.

The good shit just keeps on rolling.

Warner Bros. will bringing along The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as well as Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel. Legendary Pictures will take sloppy seconds to preview Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim.

That’s kind of it for the meat and potatoes, but the icing on the proverbial con cake would be Sony and Universal Pictures. Sony will be bringing along  Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s Premium Rush, Kevin James’ martial-arts comedy Here Comes the Boom, and Will Smith and M. Night Shymalan‘s post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie After Earth. I imagine The Total Recall reboot will probably appear again as well.

Universal hasn’t announced much yet, but it’s suspected they will bring stuff from The Bourne Legacy, Keanu Reeves’ samurai epic 47 Ronin and Dark Horse Comics adaptation of R.I.P.D. with Ryan Reynolds.

I almost forgot. Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate will have a little somethin’, somethin’ in The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 and The Expendables 2.

Studios not attending this year’s convention include 20th Century Fox, Relativity Media, DreamWorks, and Paramount Pictures. Bummer.

Got a pass for SDCC 2012? Then tell us what films (or Cosplay tits) you’re most looking forward to by sounding off in the comments below.
