'The Avengers' to be revealed at New York Comic Con
Friday 23 September 2011
Nothing quite matches the Hollywood splash of Comic Con in San Diego, but this year's Comic Con event in New York City, October 13-16, will enjoy the advantage of good timing with Marvel Studios.
The producers of next summer's blockbuster The Avengers plan to present never-before-seen footage and appearances by surprise guests at a panel in the IGN Theater devoted to the big superhero film.
This annual expo hosts events on comics, graphic novels, video games, toys, and anime/manga workshops and seminars. The line-up of panels and presentations has been released and includes the following highlights:
Red Tails, LucasFilm's inspirational action epic about the all-African-American combat pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen. Industrial Light & Magic and one of the pilots will present footage of the film releasing January 20, 2012.
DC Universe Animated Movies previews Batman: Year One and Catwoman & Justice League: Doom.
Also, director John Landis ( An American Werewolf in London, Michael Jackson's Thriller) will discuss his new book Monsters in the Movies and the fan site TheOneRing.net will talk about the upcoming Hobbit films.
Television presentations include the popular zombie show The Walking Dead and Mike Judge showing a sneak peek of his new Beavis and Butthead show - the animated duo returns to MTV in October.
Locke & Key, the much-anticipated adaptation of Welcome to Lovecraft, the Eisner-winning comic, will screen, and Comedy Central Network will showcase South Park and more new shows.
