Abrams and Whedon certainly most substantive panel of the day. #SDCC


Smattering of applause when Abrams said he thought the Lost finale was v satisfying for him. #SDCC

Battle: Los Angeles -- a war/alien movie -- onstage now. Michelle Rodriguez and Aaron Eckhart onstage now taking questions from fans. #SDCC


Jolie and Schreiber just paused while leaving the stage, to have photos snapped by fans. #SDCC #Comic-Con


For those at Comic-Con, I want you to know: "Salt" the movie is much more interesting than "Salt" the panel. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Fans have asked Jolie in 3 or 4 different ways why she chose to do Salt. She has managed to give fresh answer each time. #SDCC #Comic-Con


"I think the stunts in this movie make it a better action movie than the ones I've done," Jolie says. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Angelina at Comic-Con http://twitpic.com/27np3u

Guillermo del Toro to take on 'Haunted Mansion': Guillermo del Toro made a surprise appearance at the end of the "... http://bit.ly/bhBeZ9


"We are not returning Eddie Murphy's call," says del Toro of his Haunted Mansion. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Another extra: A teeny teaser for Haunted Mansion. Bringing out Guillermo del Toro. There's his new project, kids. #SDCC


Name of movie revealed: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Surprise extra from Disney: 3D footage of Johnny Depp from next "Pirates" movie. Capt. Jack: even drunker in multiple Ds. #SDCC


Much of trailer featured footage we saw earlier. It's now online, BTW. #SDCC


Now we are seeing a new Tron trailer. #SDCC


Original Tron will be re-released, director confirms. No brainer, right? #SDCC


Twin guys asked Olivia Wilde if after doing Tron, she has new appreciation 4 guys who play video games. #SDCC


Bridges now making environmental push for us to stop using water bottles. Everyone will probably comply, while shouting Disk! Wars! #SDCC


Now, on command, everyone is up and stomping their feet, not entirely in unison. #SDCC # Comic-Con


Everyone is yelling the words on the screen: Disk! Wars! Man, we are obedient lemmings. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Kosinski says Skywalker Sound is recording audio in the hall that could be used in Tron: Legacy. #SDCC


Reaction to the Tron footage positive, but not overwhelming. #SDCC


We are about to see eight minutes of Tron: Legacy. 3D glasses on... #SDCC


Jeff Bridges says playing against a 35-year-old version of himself was "psychedelic." Dude, forever abiding. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Jeff Bridges onstage http://twitpic.com/27mwwd


Producer Sean Bailey gives shout-out to Tron writers Adam Horowitz and Ed Kitsis of "Lost" fame, and music of Daft Punk. #SDCC #Comic-Con


Director Joseph Kosinski says Jeff Bridges plays dual role in Tron: Legacy. And 3D is genuine, not a conversion. #SDCC


Stars of Tron Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, Boxleitner and Bridges now onstage. #SDCC


Showing a documentary about Tron right now, featuring shout-outs from Simpsons to Robot Chicken. #SDCC


Oswalt is encouraging us to make Tron a Twitter trending topic. Should I comply? #ComiTron Crud, just did. #SDCC


Moderator Patton Oswalt is onstage getting ready to start the proceedings... #SDCC


Tron panel is about to start. #SDCC


The people around me are debating Avatar vs. Inception; Inception is winning. #SDCC


My take on MegaMind: Looks promising and well-suited to 3D. Those 5 minutes delivered better 3D than all 90 minutes of Last Airbender. #SDCC


@Jeb_Hoge Oh, no question that guy was a plant. I hate it when they do that. Didn't leave much time for actual fan questions. #SDCC


And now a break in the action until Tron begins in 25 minutes. #SDCC


Jonah Hill keeps talking about a twist in the movie but won't reveal. He has however announced that he will play Hulk in Avengers. #SDCC


Fey says she sees the origins of her Megamind character in Lois Lane and Princess Leia. Playing to the crowd. #SDCC


And now the inevitable question from C-Con vet Bob Stencil: "Is this just a fad, or are blue characters here to stay?"


First question from a "fan": a guy ripping off his clothes and declaring MegaMind greatest movie ever. #SDCC


The megamind cast w/ fake Brad Pitt http://twitpic.com/27mhrb


Jonah Hill has returned, says he now has read all of Gibson's audio tape statements and only supports one-fourth of what Gibson said. #SDCC


Jonah Hall just declared his support for Mel Gibson, knocked over the cut-out of Brad Pitt and stormed offstage. #SDCC


When asked to name Hollywood nemesis, Fey says Betty White. They will wrestle on pay-per-view. #SDCC


Brad Pitt just came onstage ... In cardboard cutout form. As Jolie promised, he's not here. Hall got a bit excited for a sec there. #SDCC


That was basically an extended trailer. But.. #SDCC


A Megamind Obama-esque "No You Can't" poster of the movie's villain just got a big laugh. #SDCC


They are about to show five minutes of 3D film footage. #SDCC


Jonah Hill onstage. They're pretty much babbling about Ferrell's sexual energy. #SDCC


Fey: "Whoever I met at the hotel last night, you left your Admiral Ackbar outfit in my room." #SDCC


Tina Fey on her way out, getting massive applause. Brought seven mini-donuts for everyone's breakfast. #SDCC


Will Ferrell on stage in MegaMind outfit, complete with blue orb head. #SDCC


Okay, we were just promised something cool and it was an ad for Real 3D, who provided the glasses. Yippee. #SDCC


Uh oh. Time to put on 3D glasses... #SDCC


In Hall H this morning into early afternoon: MegaMind, Tron, then Battle: LA and Salt. #SDCC


We have been welcomed to Hall H; MegaMind panel should start soon. #SDCC


I am in. And of course, I have my 3D glasses. #SDCC


For those just joining us, am a few feet from door to Hall H, trying to get into Megamind panel. Have been in line for nearly 2 hrs. #SDCC


Line was moving nicely but has abruptly stopped. Can't take the suspense... #SDCC


Line still not moving ... I have a bad feeling about this. #SDCC


The mass waiting outside Hall H. http://twitpic.com/27lvdv


The line has stopped indefinitely; if it doesn't move soon, no Megamind. #SDCC


People in line are trading the Warner bags handed out to attendees. One w/ Big Bang Theory on it is coveted by the masses. #SDCC


7 year old boy in line in front of me: Don't you people have jobs? #SDCC


Scott Pilgrim vs the Hilton http://twitpic.com/27lldg


This line is somehow moving w/o going anywhere. It's like the Simpsons escalator to nowhere. #SDCC


In v long -- but not horrifyingly long -- line to get into Hall H for first day's panels. #SDCC


En route to Convention Center and hopefully a shortish line for Megamind panel. #SDCC
