This year’s Comic-Con gets under way at an awkward time for superhero movies, which means fewer tentpoles in tights will fly into San Diego July 21-24.
Most of the coming onslaught of comic-book movies -- and that includes the latest “The Dark Knight” and the "Superman" reboot “Man of Steel” -- aren't far enough along in production to preview at the convention. On top of that, except for July 22's "Captain America," this year's slate already has hit theaters.
Go read the whole thing.That leaves "Cowboys & Aliens" and Sony's “The Amazing Spider-Man” as the only top-shelf comic book movies with a substantial presence at the annual fest.
FYI: The Robotech Industry Panel takes place on Thursday July 21 @ 7 p.m..
