Warner Bros. Unleashes Plans for Comic-Con 2008

Warner Brothers at Comic-Con 2008

Much of the talk around Comic-Con 2008 thus far has been about who is not coming — Paramount has announced a limited presence, including zero participation with Star Trek and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Fox has made it known that they will not be bringing anything Wolverine related to the table. It is all very disappointing, to say the least.

The one shiny beacon of light for fans though is Warner Bros., a studio who will attempt to make up for a lack of The Dark Knight at last year’s Con by staging this year’s main event. That main event will include looks at probably the most highly anticipated comic adaptation in history — at least among comic fans — Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. It will also include a first look at the upcoming Terminator series reboot, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, with director McG. Not to mention a few other projects, including Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla, The Wachowski Brothers’ Ninja Assassin, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the upcoming Friday the 13th reboot. As they say on the streets of geektown, WB is bringing the rain at this year’s Con.
