The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb has kept interest in the superhero movie sequel at a high level, by stringing fans along and releasing a set image for each day of filming. However, seeing that production has wrapped, it’s about time we got to check out some actual footage from the blockbuster.

As it were, Sony is expected to premiere the first Amazing Spider-Man 2 footage at the studio’s panel for the 2013 International Comic-Con. In addition, Sony will preview the 3D animated sequel Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and the studio’s remake/reboot of the RoboCop property.

Sony’s panel will take place on Friday, July 19th in Hall H. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cast members who are reported to be attending include Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker), Dane DeHaan (Harry Osborn), and Jamie Foxx (Max Dillon/Electro), along with series producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) was in attendance to promote Amazing Spider-Man at Comic-Con back in 2011, but it’s feasible that her jam-packed schedule prevented her from showing up again this year (similarly, Webb is keeping busy with post-production on TASM2 by now).

Garfield’s sincere expression of love for Peter Parker/Spider-Man earned him major brownie points with the Hall H crowd back in 2011, so he should be all the more welcome back by the audience this year. Similarly, Foxx is returning to Comic-Con a year after his appearance at the Django Unchained panel back in 2012.

The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 portion of the Sony panel will include appearances by directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, in addition to stars Anna Faris and Terry Crews (the latter showed up at Comic-Con last year for the Expendables 2 panel). There’ve been a couple trailers released for the film already, but the panel will probably still include previously-unreleased clips.

Lastly, the RoboCop segment of the panel will feature appearances by director José Padilha, in addition to stars Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L. Jackson. The reception for this project has been pretty mixed to date, so it’s safe to bet that Sony will present a teaser trailer and/or sizzle reel (to start building more positive buzz amongst the sci-fi property’s fanbase).

Keep your eyes peeled for Screen Rant‘s exclusive coverage of Sony’s panel once the 2013 International Comic-Con gets underway!

  1. Robocop…. man not heard a peep about that for months (years??) after they showed the new armour…. thought that was dead in development hell

    • Lol thought the exact same thing

    • IMO It’s the studio walking all over the director. Jose Padilha is a great up and coming director, but he’s inexperienced when it comes to dealing with studios and big budgeting. He has a knack for dipping into political commentary and that’s something that Spyglass is probably hounding him over despite the satirical nature of the original.

      • @ Nadege
        Very well said! :)

        • @nadege very interesting. Does seem like he got railroaded by producers a while back when he talked about the project.. Not so surprizingly it’s gone dark since then. Do hope i doesnt just turn out to be “what is ironman had a robotic personality.. And was a cop”. Well see soon enough, pegging it as the dark horse of the Con. It has the most potential to surprise since expectations are so low. I know the studio is hoping for as much.

  2. 123

  3. Just testing. Anyway I’m not sure about the Robocop reboot & the Amazing Spider-Man 2.

  4. I didn’t know Robocop can be pulled off in this era of big screen movies… It could/probably be better off as a tv series, though, I will be intreaged how they can make it good enough story wise to pull it off for the new viewers…

  5. I want to go to the Robocop panel just so I can throw rocks at them.

    How dare they…

    • Bahaha

  6. Sony’s not bringing “Elysium”? That’s pretty damn disappointing. I had my hopes set on the film premiering there.

    • we had like 2 trailers come out for elysium recently. Weve had more than enough footage from it. But I am suprised their not doing one last push to get the scifi fans hyped up for it.

    • People tend to forget that Elysium was the big reason that RoboCop’s date was bumped to 2014. Elysium was not ready for its release date and had to be bumped to a later date. Sony gave Elysium the RoboCop release date and gave RoboCop a later release date. RoboCop was working on an almost impossible completion schedule anyway.

      RoboCop hasn’t been invisible either, they were doing some additional filming in Vancouver just a month or so ago. Photos were widely distributed.

  7. I once knew a police officer who had “Robocop” for his vanity license plate.

  8. Looking forward to TASM2, the first was – literally – amazing and the best Spiderman movie to date.

    Robocop….I’m still not sold on that, the original is a classic and what I herad about the remake sounds terrible.

    • *heard

    • Errrrr…

      TASM was good, but I don’t think it’s the best. Opinion of course, but the origin was god awful IMO. I finally started to enjoy the film after we finally see him as Spider-Man.

      • I’m not an origin guy either, Batman Begins and MoS being my two exceptions, and I’m hoping TASM 2 lays on the action.

        • That’s not what I meant. Origins are good if done correctly, and TASM did that origin in a very sloppy manner IMO.

          • I am inclined to agree. The origin in the original Spiderman movies by Sam Raimi were awesome. Marc Webb had to retell the same stick that had already been told perfectly. If I were him, I’d have skipped the origin story we ALL know, going straight for an “already established” storyline narrative.

  9. Cant wait to see a trailer of this new ROBOCOP

  10. i think the ROBOCOP reboot will surprise everyone. it has potential to be very good
