Comic-Con 2010: 'Harry Potter,' Mark Ruffalo (maybe) and more on day three

Day three of Comic-Con is here, bringing with it several potentially big-deal moments from the high-profile movie previews in Hall H. Here's a quick look-ahead. As always, I'll be Tweeting the action at; you also can read along right here in the blog, where posts that contain said feeds will go live later today.

"The Green Lantern" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows""

The Warner Bros. panel in Hall H at 11:45 a.m. PST brings a more in-depth look at "The Green Lantern" -- one that presumably extends beyond that much-debated image of Ryan Reynolds's costume. (And one that, presumably, won't have people walking out of Hall H in droves as they did during yesterday's "Green Hornet" panel.) Also on the agenda: more footage from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows" that will make the Hogwarts faithful squee.

A look at "Let Me In"

After chatting yesterday with "Let Me In" star Kodi Smit-McPhee (interview to be posted soon), I am more intrigued than ever to see what this remake of "Let the Right One In" looks like. Chloe Moretz and Richard Jenkins also will join this panel.

The announcement of Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk?

During the Marvel panel late this afternoon, we'll see previews of "Captain America" and "Thor," as directed by Kenneth Branagh. But the big news may be confirmation that Mark Ruffalo will indeed play the Hulk in "The Avengers." That announcement would come on the heels of "Avengers" director Joss Whedon's confirmation that Jeremy Renner will play Hawkeye in the film.

The Entertainment Weekly/SyFY party

Plenty of celebrity starpower -- from the likes of Ryan Reynolds, Simon Pegg, Ian Somerhalder and others -- is expected at this annual hot-ticket soiree, one of the many Comic-Con parties that have dominated the evening scene at this event.

If I can sneak out of Hall H at all -- which is looking less likely -- I also will try to hit one of the two "Lost" panels planned for today; one is with podcasters Jay and Jack and another wll cover the "Lost" Encyclopedia. As I discovered last night at a "Lost" fan meet-up -- and from the sight of many people dressed in Dharma Initiative outfits -- the "Lost" force remains strong at Comic-Con, even though the show is over.

Any breaking news, Ruffalo-related or otherwise, will be reported from Celebritiology during the day...
