This weekend is going to be a good one for San Francisco area geeks as Wondercon is rolling into town, and each year, it seems like it's becoming a more and more important event for studios looking to promote their spring events.

4:30-5:30 The Kick-Ass Cast Can't See Through Walls But They Can Kick Your Ass!— Join the cast and creators of the new superhero action flick Kick-Ass to learn what it takes to be a superhero! You don't need special powers to seriously kick ass! This highly anticipated film's panel will talk about the making of the film, which opens on April 15. Learn how to pick a superhero name and what your costume should look like with screenwriter Jane Goldman, comic book creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. and the stars! Esplanade Ballroom
