A little event called the San Diego Comic-Con happened this past weekend and today finds nerds nationwide nursing superhero hangovers. But it seems there's still more to unveil from the movies that razzle-dazzled over the weekend, as one of the biggest—very literally—now has some fresh artwork.

If you had said a few years ago that one of the biggest ratings behemoths on cable would be a series about zombies based on a comic book, people would have said you were crazy. But defying the odds, creative shakeups and some dips in quality, "The Walking Dead" has lurched into being one of the biggest things on TV. It's certainly a jewel in the AMC crown and the fourth season is looming, and as a treat to those in San Diego -- or for those of us sitting comfortably at home -- the network has dropped a sprawling four-minute trailer for the new season.

Ender's Game
Awkward. Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment have taken the young adult sci-fi film "Ender's Game" to Comic-Con to market it to the masses. And the first question to come out of the mouths of audiences? Asking how involved "Ender's Game" author Orson Scott Card is in the making of the movie. Card, has stirred major unwanted controversy around the movie with his bigoted anti-gay comments, something that Lionsgate is doing their best to distance themselves from, and they were probably hoping no on would ask at the gigantic, supposed-to-be light trade show.

Gravity, Bullock, Clooney
"Gravity," the new film from "Children of Men" auteur Alfonso Cuaron about a pair of astronauts (played by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) adrift in outer space following a calamitous event, doesn't seem like your typical Comic-Con movie (ie. not based on a comic or featuring dudes in spandex). But the film, which is set to open the Venice Film Festival in August with a domestic bow in October, needs all the hype it can get. It's has been in active production since 2010 and has missed its release date at least once already. “It’s been an amazing miscalculation,” Cuaron told the Hall H crowd.

Amazing Spider-Man 2
Worried that, like "X-Men: Days Of Too Many Characters," Marc Webb's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is overflowing with too many villains and characters? Well, for one, the producers know this too and they cut out the role of Mary Jane Watson (played by Shailene Woodley) from the film, to save the character for the third film (more on that in a sec). And as for the various villains that could build to the Sinister Six (Of Too Many Antagonists In One Movie), fear not, Webb says Electro (Jamie Foxx) is the focus of the sequel while The Rhino's (played by Paul Giamatti) appearance may be smaller than expected

You gotta wonder if Warner Bros. and Legendary are feeling a bit nervous about next year's "Godzilla" after audiences were only mildly receptive to this summer's monster movie smashup "Pacific Rim." But there's one thing that Guillermo del Toro's movie didn't have that Gareth Edwards' upcoming flick does: brand recognition. Everyone around the world knows what Godzilla is and that alone could see people throwing their money at theater vendors to get catch a glimpse of the famed monster wreaking havoc one more time.

For a major studio who do nothing but make blockbuster tentpole movies, Marvel do, to their credit, take their fare share of risks. Casting Robert Downey Jr, an actor coming out of a decade or so of drug and alcohol addiction, and whose last film as a lead, "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" made under $5 million at the box office, as the lead in "Iron Man" was certainly a risk, but one that paid off handsomely.

“Fringe” is fast approaching the premiere of its fifth and final 13-episode season on September 28th, and you’d have to realistically expect that knowing the end is nigh that the show will be doing its best to give the fans the satisfactory denouement that they’re craving. Another J.J. Abrams created show, “Lost,” was in a similar situation to "Fringe" a few years back and Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof went to Comic-Con promising their fans the final season their dedication deserved...and we’ll leave you to decide whether they pulled that off or not. But one thing they were also extremely adamant about was that after the finale they were done with "Lost" for good. That doesn’t seem to be the same for "Fringe" with the cast talking up a potential continuation of the show in Hall H this weekend.

Yes, we're still playing a bit of catch-up with the deluge of geekery that landed over the past few days at Comic-Con, but we're nearly there. While Marvel got the most press for the unveiling of logos and titles, as well as the confirmation of Ben Kingsley as Mandarin in "Iron Man 3," the company also dropped a pretty decent helping of "Item 47," the upcoming One Shot short set to appear on the "The Avengers" DVD and Blu-ray this fall.
