Don’t expect the Avengers to reassemble in Hall H at Comic-Con International in July.

The official word from Marvel Studios is that their team will sit out the Hollywood previews in the 6,000-seat hall, where fans, bloggers and journalists from around the world come to see filmmakers and stars introduce and promote their upcoming spectacle movies.

The leadership at Marvel Studios is also quick to point out that sitting out Hall H is not synonymous with sitting out Comic-Con, which runs July 21-24; the studio will have a major presence on the convention showroom floor (one Marvel source cryptically said that the booth plan will be as attention-grabbing as last year’s Hall H panel), and there’s talk of a promotional event beyond the walls of the San Diego Convention Center, which might suggest a 'Captain America: The First Avenger' promotion, premiere or special screenings.

And what of Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment? Well, as we reported a few weeks ago, they also will not have a major presence at the upcoming event in San Diego.

"Go big or stay home," is how one Marvel insider put it, and that logic is seemingly embraced by rival Warner Bros. with 'Man of Steel,' the 2012 feature-film revival of Superman that is conspicuously absent (at least at this point) from the Hall H program. 'The Dark Knight Rises,' Warner’s follow-up to its billion-dollar Batman film in 2009, is also M.I.A., but Gotham City filmmaker Christopher Nolan has never set foot in Hall H so this latest absence may add to his mystique, but it won’t shock anyone.


I've read another similar report already, and has been pointed out in the press is that financially it doesn't do a lot of good to parade a movie to comic book fans these days at comic cons. They tend to tear the movies apart spinning off tons of bad press and wind up killing a movie before it even gets released.

The fans of today have in effect become blood thirsty in terms of their criticisms of their favorite heroes on screen. Never before have fans been able to see their heroes on the screen in such huge pictures, but this could be coming to an end if fans don't appreciate what they have.

I'm not saying we can't criticize or point out what we like or don't like, but go read some of the other fan sites out there where user comments are under each news story. You'll read such thoughtful comments as "F this movie" to Green Lantern etc.

Already, the appearance of superheroes is going to be very scarce on TV. One new show on Sy Fy comes to mind and then there's a few cartoons like Brave and the Bold, and Young Justice. No Ordinary Family which I thought was a great show for comic fans and non comic fans alike got the boot. Comic fans are probably to thank for the lack of superhero shows on TV. After all anything that remotely resembles a comic book gets torn apart.

Too bad all the other genres don't seem to have their own rabid angry fans to even the playing field. Where's the anger over American Idol or all the stupid idiotic sitcoms on TV now?

As the old Cinderella song says, "Don't know what you got till it's gone". Modern comics fans may well learn what a world is like with no superheroes on the big screen or the little one.
