Look at Everything You're Missing Because You're Not at Comic-con, Losers!
As Prisco and SLW continue to provide the Comic-con coverage the other movie blogs are ignoring, we’ll also continue to post the trailers, the news, and the movie posters that the blogosphere echo chamber is covering, too. But I’ll do it 3,000 miles away from Comic-Con. It’s not the same, people: You can look at the posters for Sucker Punch on your computer, but you can’t experience them the same way, losers.

During a panel with J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon officially announced what everyone has already known for months. He will direct The Avengers. I know this wasn’t exciting news, but that’s because you weren’t there to hear Whedon announce it in person. (Slashfilm)
The Pixar folks are being brought in to consult on the new Muppet movie. Oh, wait. That wasn’t even announced at Comic-con. That’s from (The Hollywood Reporter)
Here’s the new movie poster for Matt Reeve’s Let Me In (the remake of Let the Right One In). If you were at Comic-con, you could’ve actually touched this poster. Or at least the glass encasing it. Pwned! (MTV)
At a Battle Los Angeles panel, Aaron Eckhart revealed that he and Neil LaBute have discussed the idea of maybe one day possibly doing an In the Company of Men sequel. (FSR)
This is actually kind of cool: The USA Network is developing a movie prequel to “Burn Notice” that revolves around Bruce Campbell’s character. I’m very sorry you’re only hearing about this now; if you’d been at Comic-con, you’d have had this information 12 hours ago. (Deadline)
Finally, here’s a crapload of character posters from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, which Warner Brothers released on the Internet several hours after people who are cooler than you got to see them in a lobby of a convention center.
