As I head to San Diego for my umpteenth Comic-Con, I feel equal parts anticipation and dread. It's fun and I'll learn a lot that I want to know--but it's exhausting, large-crowd, insane circus fun.

As I head to San Diego for my umpteenth Comic-Con, I feel equal parts anticipation and dread. It's fun and I'll learn a lot that I want to know--but it's exhausting, large-crowd, insane circus fun.

USA Today looks at Iron Man 2, as does Coming Attractions. (Director Jon Favreau has been keeping his 113,000 Twitter followers up-to-date all along.)

The big fan sites are King at Comic-Con: AICN is getting many scoops, as is IGN, which debuted the new poster for Nightmare on Elm Street, starring Jackie Earl Haley, and the trailer for Whiteout. Matt Dentler rounds up the usual suspects.
