Everyone here at G4 is still in full-on Comic-Con 2010 cool down mode at the moment, and part of that process has been taking a moment to look back at the absurd amount of content our amazing team churned out over the past few days and reflecting on its epicness. As such, we’ve put together this little wrap-up post to highlight some of the bigger movie/TV news, announcements, interviews, and trailers that came out of this year’s Con.
On the movie side, the biggest announcement/moment had to be the unveiling of the principle cast of director Joss Whedon’s The Avengers during Marvel Studios’ panel. While news that Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner was confirmed as Hawkeye, and the rumor that Mark Ruffalo would be announced as the new Hulk, both came out prior to the big group reveal, it was still a mighty impressive sight to see Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Whedon all on stage together for the first time.
The other big comic-book movie news revolved around Marvel’s Thor and Captain America. G4 managed to grab Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, and director Kenneth Branagh to chat about the upcoming film. We also caught up with Captain America star Chris Evans, costar Hugo Weaving, and the film’s director, Joe Johnston to find out more about their Captain-tastic flick.
And while we're talking comics, it's also worth mentioning again that four Marvel franchises--Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine, and Blade--will be heading to G4 in 2011 in the form of 48 Marvel-icious animated episodes. Feel free to commence drooling. We understand.
There was also no shortage of epic trailers for some of 2010-2011’s biggest movies released during Comic-Con, including:
- The Green Hornet Trailer
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows The Story Trailer
- Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Trailer
