Will 'Star Wars,' 'The Avengers' and 'Community' make the trip to San Diego?
What: Brad Pitt and "Fury Road" come to Comic-Con
Why we want it: Mr. Jolie is on an ever shrinking list of major movie stars who have never actually appeared on stage at Comic-Con. Well, technically that's not true. A life-size cut out of Pitt appeared alongside Tina Fey and Will Ferrell during a "Megamind" panel HitFix's own Drew McWeeny moderated in 2010. In the flesh? Not yet.
Chances it will happen: 25%. "Fury" has the opportunity to be a big male-skewing action hit for Sony Pictures. It's also probably an Oscar player,but that's another story. This is a great venue to show a great showreel to some hardcore movie fans. The guess, however, is that it won't be Pitt who shows up, but director David Ayer and stars Logan Lerman and Michael Pena.
