As San Diego Comic-Con quickly approaches, we're starting to get a better idea of what this year's programming slate will include. Movies look to be taking a back seat to TV shows this year, with a number of popular shows taking over Hall H and Ballroom 20. Take a look at which shows/movies were confirmed this week.
Ever since Marvel joined the Disney family, there have been wistful thoughts of the comic book giant teaming up with Pixar for an animated movie. While we're a long way from that even happening, CCO John Lasseter spoke about what it would take to make it happen. Which begs the question, which Marvel superhero would best be suited for the Pixar treatment?

Yesterday, I put myself through the wringer with the ultimate test: the Marvel Movie Marathon, 17 hours of movie madness in a 250-seat theater in Los Angeles. Here are five things I learned during my marathon experience, which began on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. and concluded just before 3 a.m. on Friday.
Fandango chats with Tom Hiddleston at the Los Angeles press day for The Avengers. In addition to discussing the prospect of pushing his character forward after Thor, he addresses where Loki might go in Thor 2, and examined the similarities between roles in huge blockbusters like this one and those in the smaller films that will get bankrolled because of it.
While the final trailer for The Dark Knight Rises snuck online last night, a few other superhero properties are in the works. Check out updates on Chronicle 2, the long-rumored Daredevil reboot and the potential of another solo Hulk movie. And yes, since this is a Fanboy Fix post, more Avengers pics.
Of all of the superheroes assembled for Joss Whedon’s team-up movie The Avengers, the Hulk is the one who comes with the most baggage, and yet in some ways, the one from whom audiences expect the least. Fandango sat down with Ruffalo at the recent Los Angeles press day for The Avengers to talk about the challenge of tapping into the Hulk’s rage.
While AMC kicked things off with Ultimate Marvel Marathon (in which all five recent Marvel films are screened leading up to a midnight presentation of The Avengers), other theater chains are offering similar deals. Find your nearest theater and join in on the Marvel madness!
This contest is now closed. It was a close battle until Cap pulled ahead at the end and won the Showdown 194-156. There were also a few draws, indecisive picks and one vote for The Hulk... Check back Thursday May 3, for a new Avengers Showdown!
Last week the Alamo Drafthouse's movie poster powerhouse Mondo revealed that they were doing a series of seven posters for Marvel's The Avengers, and kicked off with stylish posters for Black Widow and Hawkeye. Today it is our sincere pleasure to lift the digital curtain on the most Godlike member of the team, Thor! Check out the Mondo poster and view the rest of the Avengers here.
With May just two weeks away, the summer movie season is fast approaching (and yes, it begins in May as movie studios release their tentpole films early to jump the gun). Fandango recently polled moviegoers on their most anticipated films and actors, and found that Marvel's The Avengers is living up to its superhero hype, garnering the most votes for multiple categories.
While The Hunger Games is currently the biggest story at the box office this year, early tracking for The Avengers has the Marvel superhero flick blowing the dystopian book adaptation out of the water. Check out 32 new images that have hit the web, including our first look at Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.
Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and the rest of The Avengers cast traded in their superhero suits for the glamour and excitement of the red carpet. Check out the pics from the world premiere, inside, as well as info on Free Comic Book Day!
