    2014 Comic-Con Is Almost Here: Check Out 6 Things We're Excited to See!

    Batman vs. Superman, Superman, Henry Cavill Clay Enos/Warner Bros.

    San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner and we're on the edge of our seats!

    Between the first looks at films we can't wait to see, and the highly anticipated announcements that will no doubt be made, the annual convention is one of the most exciting summer movie events around.

    And while the shroud of secrecy surrounding Comic-Con is only making us more excited, we do have a few ideas (guesses based on what the web is buzzing about counts, right?!) about what we can expect to see later this week.

    So let's have a look at what we're most excited to see unfold in just a few short days:

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Warner Bros. Pictures

    1. A (Hopefully) Fantastic Debut: Word on the streets is that we could very well meet the new cast of The Fantastic Four on Friday at the 20th Century Fox panel. While no details have been released (not surprisingly), a rather large chunk of time has been set aside—translation: it's gonna be huge. It's certainly not news that Jamie Bell, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller are the stars of the soon-to-be hit, but we have yet to see the actors together promoting the 2015 Josh Trank film.

    2. Reunited and It'll Feel So Good: With Benedict Cumberbatch (who will already be promoting Penguins of Madagascar) and Martin Freeman in town for the final Hobbit film, it'll be hard to concentrate on anything else other than the Sherlock Holmes reunion.

    President Snow's Panem Address, Together as One, Hunger Games Lionsgate

    3. Mockingjay, Mockingjay, Mockingjay: It may not be out in theaters until the end of November, but the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will debut on Friday. No word yet on who is to be expected at the event, but our guess is some (if not all) of the cast members will be on hand for the release.

    4. A League of Their Own: Something tells us the Warner Bros. panel is going to be a pretty, pretty big deal. And between Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, it's going to be an exciting Saturday morning. Fans could get their first look at the cast of the League and/or we could catch a better glimpse of Ben Affleck playing the Caped Crusader.

    5. Marvel Magic: Will Marvel Studios confirm a Doctor Strange movie? If so, who will be cast as the lead, Stephen Strange? And will we see the cast of The Avengers? So many questions, so little time…

    6. Small Screen, Big News: Major blockbusters may steal most of the show, but there are plenty of panels dedicated to some of the best television shows around. There's something for everyone, too. Game of Thrones, Community, Sons of Anarchy are just a few of the series' that are going to meet to answer some of their fans' biggest questions. We can't wait!
