Most film panels at this year’s San Diego Comic Con are for films opening later this year, while a few are for movies in the first half of 2012.
Now, Legendary Pictures is breaking out on its own (rather than combining with Warner Brothers) and will provide their first ever standalone panel for four films, all of which won’t likely hit the multiplex until 2013.
“Pacific Rim” will have a panel with director Guillermo del Toro, writer Travis Beacham and cast members Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, and Rinko Kikuchi.
“Seventh Son” will have Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander and director Sergei Bodrov showing up.
Bradley Cooper and director Alex Proyas will do a panel about their ambitious planned adaptation of Milton’s “Paradise Lost”.
Finally, and most unexpectedly, writer Mark Protosevich and “Mass Effect” game creator Casey Hudson will talk about the proposed film adaptation of ‘Mass’.
Both Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy are confirmed to be at the Con this year promoting other movies so it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if one or both showed up briefly to discuss “Man of Steel” and “The Dark Knight Rises” respectively.
