Kapow! Comic-Con 2012 News Round-Up

Today, I had the honour of attending Kapow! Comic-Con, and I can tell you it was absolutely fantastic. I won’t divulge into details, but rather give a news round-up. Unfortunately, nothing too interesting was revealed but there was some cool tidbits I picked up at various panels.

  • Rocksteady denied that they were working on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, and avoided any questions about a third Arkham game.
  • Noel Clarke refused to answer any questions about Star Trek II, only that he has already shot the movie.
  • Kick-Ass II begins principal photography in September.
  • Supercrooks will shoot next year.
  • Gareth Edwards says that production on Godzilla is going really well, and said that just because this was a huge monster movie doesn’t mean it can’t be a personal story. He also said that he hopes there’ll be some real news coming our way soon.
  • Chloe Moretz will return as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass II, and she has already read the script.
  • Star Wars producer Rick McAllum said that the live-action SW TV show is still in pre-production.


And that’s all for today folks! Stay tuned to UTF tomorrow for descriptions of the footage showing for The Amazing Spider-Man and Total Recall tomorrow. Did you attend Kapow! today?

I have been reborn amidst salt and smoke to lead UTF against the darkness. I'm also an amateur writer and filmmaker as well as having played the 16th Doctor and invented penicillin. Also, deceased.

    …..That’s it? That’s all he had on Godzilla? We’re still at square one.

    Actually, he didn’t say that Chloe Moretz was signed on for Kick-Ass 2. He said she was in talks about it, had seen the script and they’d had breakfast a couple of weeks ago. But he deliberately said that she was not yet confirmed.
