    At their Comic-Con panel tonight Marvel brought on stage the main cast members for The Avengers, in turn announcing Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

    During the Comic-Con panel for Dexter the first trailer for the fifth season of the series was unveiled. Rather than talk about what is shown, given that it would mean some huge spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen up through the fourth season, I'll just post the trailer below! Be warned though spoilers may appear in the comments. ...

    It has only been 12 days since the news broke that Edward Norton would not be returning to play Bruce Banner (aka The Hulk) in The Avengers.  Rumors quickly started stirring about who would take on the role. After a few days it became clear that Mark Ruffalo was the guy Marvel was targeting and it was just about hammering out the contract details. Word comes today that Ruffalo has agreed to play Hulk in The Avengers and also it would mean he has agreed to appear in future Marvel films (tho...

    The panel for the graphic novel adaptation Red at Comic-Con today was one of the most entertaining. Bruce Willis was funny as usual, Helen Mirren was really amusing and clearly having fun with a role that is so different for her, and I really like Mary-Louise Parker. It is just a shame that Morgan Freeman wasn't there too, but there are so many big name stars that appear in Red that some were going to have to be left out. While I remain somewhat iffy on the film as it just hasn't clicked wi...

    At the Comic-Con panel today for Tron: Legacy eight minutes of the film was shown (and in 3D) which I was very impressed by and then the panel closed with the playing on the brand new trailer. That trailer has now arrived online. Tron Legacy is the sequel to the 1982 classic Tron. Jeff Bridges returns in his role of Kevin Flynn and Garrett Hedlund plays his son Sam Flynn. The movie also stars Olivia Wilde and Michael Sheen. The story centers on Sam attempting to find his father, who has ...

    Announced today at Comic-Con, Guillermo Del Toro is taking on a remake of Disney's The Haunted Mansion for his next project. Due to delays he recently exited as director on The Hobbit. According to Del Toro who was brought out on stage when the announcement was made, The Haunted Mansion will be live action, in 3D, and will not be a comedy. He will be going for a darker, scarier take with the intention for it still to be a fun ride. The Haunted Mansion ride opened at Disneyland in 1969. T...

    Marvel has released these promotional teaser posters for both Thor and Captain America that will be featured at Comic-Con. They are presented in a painted style, not actual imagery from films, with the hopes of eliciting the same emotion that made the characters iconic to begin with. Both are expected to get a great deal of attention at the event later this week with the Marvel panel taking place on Saturday....
