    MOVIES


    • On tap is a return to Neptune, the California town where Veronica Mars got her start and, now, thanks to a Kickstarter-funded endowment, a big screen version with star Kristen Bell is in the offing.
    • For superhero and super-villain fixes,  Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx, who along with director Marc Webber will bring insight into the making of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," offer details about the webslinger and villains Electro and the Rhino. They may also offer some sneak previews of footage from the film that comes out next summer.
    • Oh, and it's also the end of the world today. Well, at least for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the dynamic duo from the UK whose film "The World's End" -- about a pub crawl gone wrong in all the right and funny ways -- talk about facing down "barmageddon."

    TELEVISION
    • For those who prefer their TV shows filled with shambling wrecks of the dead and deceased, prepare for an ultra-long line ahead of "The Walking Dead" with stars Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira, to get the lowdown on season four about the walkers and maybe who lives and dies.
    • Marvel Comics' S.H.I.E.L.D. by Joss Whedon -- the guy who wrote "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly," and directed a small, cult film called "The Avengers" -- will drop hints and some surprises about the House of Ideas' first live-action series.
    • Finally, who knows who dies next, but it's clear no one is immune in HBO's "Game of Thrones," the show based on George R.R. Martin's epic "Fire and Ice" novels. The actors, including Richard Madden and Emilia Clarke, will do a Q-and-A in the cavernous Hall H.

    MUSIC

    In addition to all the movies and television happenings, there's also a concert by Metallica, the metal band with a following like no other, but it's a secret (although not a well-kept one, given it's among the buzziest items today at Comic-Con).
    The band is in town to show off its new documentary film "DeMetallica Through the Never," a 3-D concert film cum documentary.

    And did you know there's going to be comics, costumed adventurers, Superman, Wolverine and parties galore? It is, after all, Friday at Comic-Con International.

  • Recap: Here's what you may have missed ...

    Couldn't make it to the first full day of Comic-Con International? Here's a recap of what you missed -- and it was a lot.

    Chris Carter was cool to the idea of a third movie based on "The X-Files," the cult TV show that became a hit 20 years ago, but its stars -- David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson -- were keen on the notion, should it ever happen.

    Meanwhile, Harrison Ford (aka Han Solo and Indiana Jones) couldn't escape his twin iconic roles during a panel on his new film "Ender's Game," a sci-fi classic due out in November.  Elsewhere, actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were showing off their first full film together ("Escape Plan") -- something the former California governor said he wanted to make since 1979.

    There were long lines for autographs from Robert Kirkman, the creator of "The Walking Dead," who said he didn't care that the hit TV show was snubbed for an Emmy nom because it's the high ratings and popularity that matter the most to him!

  • No more pre-registration

    19 July  1:15 p.m. EDT

    by Kellen Henry on Jul 17, 2013 at 3:37 PM
    Fans at this year's Comic-Con all had to register online.

    Attendees used to be able to register onsite for the following year's convention, but organizers eliminated that option last year.

    Why? The event has become so popular that organizers have capped attendance at around 130,000 and implemented the digital-registration system to reduce long lines onsite (there are enough of those already) and to prevent ticket brokers from buying blocks of admission badges for resale.

  • Three questions for "The Wolverine" star Hugh Jackman

    19 July 3:11 p.m. EDT


     This publicity photo released by 20th Century Fox shows Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine in a scene from the film, "The Wolverine." The film opens July 25. (AP Photo/20th Century Fox, Ben Rothstein) 
    by Kellen Henry on Jul 17, 2013 at 5:32 PM


    Hugh Jackman is sinking his claws into Comic-Con again to hype "The Wolverine," his "X-Men" spin-off opening July 25. We asked the star about returning to Comic-Con and about getting naked again as Wolverine on the big screen:

    AP: It took four years for "The Wolverine" to come to fruition. How do you feel about finally being able to show it off at Comic-Con?

    Jackman: I love it. I love the title. It was actually (former director) Darren Aronofsky's idea, but it's one we — including the studio — stuck with because it sends a signal that we're not making a movie that's loaded with a lot of other mutants. You're actually gonna get to know this one. I think it's time. This story is one of the greatest, and that's the reason it's one of the fan favorites.

    AP: As much as fans can be passionate at Comic-Con, they can also be equally critical. They didn't love "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." How do you feel about hearing from them this week?

    Jackman: I'm never afraid of that. I think the fans know I'm so grateful and very blessed to play the part. I love them. We try our hardest to get everything right, and I'm happy to hear from them. I learn from them. One of the main things I hear from fans all the time is we don't see enough of the berserker rage, and I really took that to heart because, to me, that is one of the key things I love about Logan.

    AP: For everything that's different about this Wolverine film, there's once again a scene that finds Logan naked in a giant tub, even though the circumstances this time are very different from past "X-Men" movies. Is this something you're stipulating in your contract now?

    Jackman: Look, all I say is it has to be a minimum of a minute. It's only a minute. That's all. I love a bit of nudity. It's a funny scene. The movie is darker in tone, and more restrained in a way. As long as we can get away with it, it's nice to have those fun moments. In all seriousness, no, it's not in my contract.
