Comic-Con is roughly under a week away from kicking off and we are still having announcements on panels and guests rolling in at the last minute. One of the more exciting surprises is that 20th Century Fox has decided to bring The Wolverine as well as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to San Diego.
Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold will both be on hand for a last minute panel to talk to fans about The Wolverine, which will be coming out world-wide the weekend after Comic-Con kicks off.
As for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to last year’s film doesn’t come out until next summer but Fox is ready to bring what they have to Comic-Con to dish about what’s in store for the next installment of the prequel franchise.
Fox is also promising a third surprise which ScreenCrush.com speculated could be footage from X-Men: Days of Future Past or an announcement and unveiling of the cast from the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The more likely option is fans getting a sneak peak at early X-Men footage but anything could happen at Comic-Con.
The two events from Fox that we do know are happening will no doubt be crowd pleasers as The Wolverine is already being hyped as a late summer hit and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will feature all the major players including Andy Serkis and director Matt Reeves. The Fox panel will take place on Saturday at 4:15 p.m. in Hall H.
