Steven Spielberg made his first-ever appearance at San Diego Comic-Con today, and talked plenty about The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn with his coconspirator Peter Jackson.

And what else is he working on? Let's see, only War Horse, Lincoln, Robopocalypse. That should be enough, right?

Nope! He went ahead and confirmed to the crowd that Jurassic Park 4 is in the works, too:

"We have a story," Spielberg told 6,000-plus fans in the San Diego Convention Center. "We have a writer who is writing the treatment and hopefully we are going to make Jurassic park 4 in all of our foreseeable futures, hopefully in the next two or three years."

The director then took a long trip down memory lane, thanks to audience questions. Among the things Spielberg revealed were that he produced but perhaps wished he has directed American Beauty (though he credited the great job done by Sam Mendes). Also, that he perhaps had the best time producing "Bob Zemeckis' three Back to the Future movies."

All in all, an incredibly classy panel, capped off with a question from a lucky fan wearing a T-shirt that read "I want to meet Steven Spielberg if only to shake his hand and say thank you."

So the young man, deemed the luckiest guy on the planet by the moderator, got to shake Steven Spielberg's hand while Peter Jackson took their picture.
