Guardians Of The Galaxy, James Gunn
Until this point, all James Gunn would allow about his future with Marvel was that he was under contract for one more movie. But with strong early reviews for "Guardians Of The Galaxy" (here's ours), and a box office opening already predicted to be around $60 million (with some projections putting the take higher), it's now just a formality of Marvel making it official that Gunn will be back to write and direct the sequel. Accordingly, the folks around Gunn are basically confirming he's got the gig.

Tusk
Kevin Smith has really done an about face in the last few years. In 2012, just after his mooted hockey film project “Hit Somebody” went south, the director decided to change gears and write a “Clerks 3” movie. He then even essentially announced his retirement on Twitter, claiming the third ‘Clerks’ film would be final feature (there was some plan for “Hit Somebody” to be a TV mini-series, but that hasn’t panned out yet).

Horns,
From the glasses of Harry Potter to uh, the horns growing out of his head in "Horns," Daniel Radcliffe has come a long way since being the boy wizard. And now the first teaser trailer for the horror movie is here, and it promises some moody stuff, with Radcliffe trying a different accent too.

Game Of thrones
The fifth season of “Game Of Thrones” is about to get underway any minute now and the fast-working HBO show is already scheduled for an April 2015 premiere. The show works at a rather break-neck pace, and so while production is set to begin any moment now (and some of the cast was at Comic-Con today), naturally, the new members of the cast have been announced. And there are nine new members to the ever expanding troupe.

The writing narrative around “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is a fascinating one that hasn’t really come to full light yet, but it’ll be interesting to hear what happened when all the filmmakers are ready to talk. You’ll remember Zack Snyder and co. originally had a May, 2015 release date in mind and as early as October of last year, the filmmaker was shooting some kind of football game scene that involved a team from Gotham (Batman’s digs) and Metropolis (obviously the home to Superman). It all seemed like full steam ahead.

Avengers, Age of Ultron
If there is anybody who has mastered the art of showing everything and nothing at the same time, it's Marvel. Indeed, they are already starting the promo train for next year's "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron," with first look photos and posters galore. And yet, they don't really reveal any big secrets behind the highly anticipated film. So all we can do is speculate, and Joss Whedon has given fans something to think about.

The Walking Dead
Alright, time to be straight up honest here: even though it's one of the most popular shows on television right now, I have never watched an episode of "The Walking Dead." And for no real reason than I simply don't have time, and it's never managed to be one that interested me enough to catch up with it. So you tell me, should I make the effort?

Project Almanac
Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey's appearance in Hall H wasn't the only surprise aspect of Paramount's lengthy San Diego Comic Con panel yesterday. It was also announced, after a brief clip was shown, that "Project Almanac," the Michael Bay-produced found footage time travel movie, would also be screened for select attendees. We were able to attend the screening and, while it doesn't exactly blaze a new trail, the movie is smart and knowingly acknowledges both its place in the time travel subgenre and its formal limitations as a found footage movie. That self-awareness makes it fun and silly and, yes, kind of stupid, but in ways that are mostly enjoyable and forgivable.

Death Of Superman Lives
“Jodorowksy’s Dune”—which, of course, focused on Alejandro Jodorowsky’s doomed “Dune” adaptation—was a riotous revelation that we instantly fell in love with (and ranked in our Best Documentaries Of 2014 So Far). Following in its footsteps is the Kickstarter-funded “The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?” and the documentary’s first trailer premiered at Comic-Con and is now available to watch in the comfort of your own home.
