Comic-Con 2012: IRON MAN 3, HOBBIT, MAN OF STEEL, PACIFIC RIM & TWILIGHT Coming to Hall H; No-Shows: TDKR and TREK 2

     June 12, 2012


We’re a month away from San Diego Comic-Con 2012, so all of the Twilight fans can start lining up outside Hall H right now.  Yes, it’s been confirmed that Lionsgate-Summit’s finale, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, will be making an appearance in the “halliest of halls” this summer.  But what else will make the con worth standing in the Hall H line?  How about Iron Man 3, Man of Steel and Pacific Rim for starters?  Unfortunately, Comic-Con looks to be a no-show for The Dark Knight Rises (except for maybe a Tumbler Tour), but that should come as no surprise.  What IS surprising is the lack of any Star Trek 2 presence.  Hit the jump for more scheduling information and details on what you can (and can’t) see at Comic-Con 2012.

Here’s a reminder that Hall H will also be featuring the TV panel for The Big Bang Theory on Friday in an effort to, not only provide more space for the legions of loyal and intelligent fans, but also to fill in the gaps left by vacating studios.  Fringe and Supernatural will also be in Hall H, but during Sunday, which is normally slotted for TV panels.

So which movie studios are no-shows? Variety is reporting that Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Relativity Media, DreamWorks and DreamWorks Animation are all skipping out on Hall H this year.  Universal hasn’t confirmed one way or the other.  Here’s what we do expect to see:



Warner Bros.:

Legendary Pictures (w/ Warner Bros. as distributors):

  • Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim (July 12, 2013) – unconfirmed

Sony (all unconfirmed):


If Universal decides to turn up, we could see something from R.I.P.D., starring Ryan Reynolds in a June 28th, 2013 release.  The studio could also showcase The Bourne Legacy (August 3, 2012) and 47 Ronin (February 8, 2013).

If Paramount decides to show, we could see (emphasis on the “could”) something new, perhaps, from G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which was pushed back to a March 29th, 2013 opening date, owing to reshoots, 3D post-conversion and a Channing Tatum infusion.  Equally plagued and hungry for a dose of good PR is the Brad Pitt-starrer, World War Z (June 21, 2013).  If Paramount doesn’t show, don’t expect to see any glimpses of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (January 11, 2013), Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher (December 21, 2012) or, disappointingly, anything from Star Trek 2 (May 17, 2013).

Stay tuned for more news on scheduling for Comic-Con 2012 as it breaks and, of course, follow Collider for all-you-can-handle Comic-Con coverage from July 11th to July 15th.
