Comic-Con makes Film & TV Announcement

June 5, 2007

Here it is… the list of films that will be represented at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego! Superherohype makes a note that THE DARK KNIGHT was NOT announced… its pretty hard to believe that the Batman sequel WON’T be featured, so a later announcement will probably be made on that front. This is, after all, Comic-Con– the biggest event of its kind in the world, the place where studios roll out their movies to the core fanbase who help determine whether their project is the next 300, or the next CATWOMAN.

Here’s what we know you likely will see– I’ve bolded the panels Scramble Network plans to report from (there’s a lot of them!):

  • Alien vs. Predator 2: No Peace On Earth
  • American Gangster
  • Babylon A.D.
  • Balls of Fury
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Beowulf
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • Coraline
  • Fred Claus
  • Get Smart
  • The Golden Compass
  • Hellboy 2: The Golden Army
  • Heroes
  • I Am Legend
  • The Incredible Hulk
  • Indiana Jones 4
  • The Invasion
  • Iron Man
  • Lost
  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets
  • Resident Evil: Extinction
  • Speed Racer
  • The Strangers
  • Stardust
  • Star Trek
  • Sunshine
  • Sweeney Todd
  • 30 Days of Night
  • Trick ‘r Treat
  • Wanted
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • White Out

Looks like a great year… expect plenty of news to be made in San Diego that week!


The Incredible Hulk Synopsis

May 31, 2007

Via Comic Book Movie, Universal has released a full synopsis for THE INCREDIBLE HULK, the non-sequel starring Ed Norton and Liv Tyler:

The explosive, action-packed adventure in one of the all-time most popular superhero sagas unfolds with a cure in reach for the world’s most primal force of fury: The Incredible Hulk. We find scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote. But the warmongers who dream of abusing his powers won’t leave him alone, nor will his need to be with the only woman he has ever loved, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).

Upon returning to civilization, our brilliant doctor is ruthlessly pursued by The Abomination (Tim Roth) — a nightmarish beast of pure adrenaline and aggression whose powers match The Hulk’s own. A fight of comic-book proportions ensues as Banner must call upon the hero within to rescue New York City from total destruction. And on June 13, 2008, one scientist must make an agonizing final choice — accept a peaceful life as Bruce Banner or the creature he could permanently become: The Incredible Hulk.

Can’t wait to see THE ABOMINATION and THE HULK tear up Manhattan! That could be one amazing fight sequence, especially in the hands of director Louis Leterrier!
