Comic-Con 2013 Saturday movie panels: Marvel sequels, 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' 'Godzilla' and more
All the biggest movies are stacked back-to-back: Warner Bros. kicks off the festivities in the morning with an advance look at the new "Godzilla" (plus Alfonso Cuaron's anticipated space epic "Gravity" and a fanboy-baiting "LEGO" animated movie).
Lionsgate follows with the first Comic-Con panel for "The Hunger Games." Expect an advance look at "Catching Fire" and ridiculously long lines to get a seat.
Twentieth Century Fox has yet to reveal what films they'll be highlighting but they've reserved a 90 minute block that could include such upcoming titles as "The Wolverine" (a Hugh Jackman appearance is all but guaranteed), "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and even an early peek at "X-Men: Days of Future Present."
Marvel will close out the fun in style, per usual, this year highlighting upcoming sequels "Thor: The Dark World" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and no doubt revealing tantalizing tidbits about other titles in the pipeline.
