Will 'Star Wars,' 'The Avengers' and 'Community' make the trip to San Diego?
What: Christopher Nolan sneaks 'Interstellar'
Why we want it: Nolan may have directed three Batman films, but he's never been to Comic-Con. "Interstellar" is shaping up to be this fall's "Gravity." A Sci-Fi film with prestige appeal that could be a monster at the box office and with the Academy. Guess which movie made a big 3D presentation at Comic-Con last year? Oh, "Gravity." Oh, and which movie did that in 2009? Oh, "Avatar."
Chances it will happen: 25%. It's possible Nolan comes to Comic-Con for something. Maybe they give him some sort of visionary award, but a sit-down panel? It doesn't matter that best director winners Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Steven Soderbergh, James Cameron, Robert Zemeckis or Alfonso Cuaron have all done it. That's just not Nolan's style.
