Comic-Con panel plans make for marathon Saturday

WB, Legendary and Marvel stack up four hours of presentations

Fanboys are in for a marathon session on Saturday at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures and Marvel Studios are readying a marathon of presentations for tentpoles that include “Man of Steel,” “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “Pacific Rim,” and “Iron Man 3,” that will all take place July 14 in the San Diego Convention Center’s Hall H — the facility’s largest presentation room that seats 6,000.

The planned panels will run at least four hours, with Marvel wrapping up the day, ending Hollywood’s film presentations as it’s done in the past with “Iron Man 2” and “The Avengers.” The hour-long Marvel panel will start at 6 p.m.

Marvel-owner Disney will host its own hour-long Hall H panel on July 12 beginning at 2:05 p.m, with the studio focusing on “Frankenweenie,” “Oz: The Great and Powerful” and Walt Disney Animation’s “Wreck-It Ralph.”
