The Avengers and Game of Thrones impressed, but fans of Fantastic Four and American Horror Story: Coven were left in the dust.
Benedict Cumberbatch! Frozen’s Elsa! And (hopefully) first looks at Game of Thrones’ Sand Snakes and the Justice League of America. Here’s our wish list for 2014’s San Diego Comic-Con, running from July 23–27.
Director Guillermo del Toro also announced he is developing an animated series set in the Pacific Rim world. “The characters I love will return … but we are taking them into a fresh territory,” he told BuzzFeed.
This photo is NOT it — we’re sparing you! UPDATE: The billboards are being replaced in “several locations.”
The story of how a project that almost didn’t make it to television became one of the year’s most anticipated new series. Creator del Toro on the books’ long and winding route to the screen.
“We called it The Book of Life because, for me, the movie is about life and joy and memory and honoring memory, and knowing you can live forever when you have somebody that loves, and loved, you.”
The director also tells BuzzFeed that two fan-favorite characters are set to return.
Some of the year’s lousiest movies and TV shows were the ones we were looking forward to the most.
Our time has come friends.
The genre-master filmmaker behind Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, and Pacific Rim gives BuzzFeed his insight on telling great stories.

Del Toro is the guest-director for The Simpsons’ 24th annual “Treehouse Of Horror” and oh my God, it’s perfect.
Hiddleston gave his buddy a ring before saying yes to Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak. Hiddlestoners and Cumberbitches unite!
It is said that there are only seven original stories in the world, but Guillermo Del Toro took it to a new level, basically making a big collage of some sci-fi favorites. These seven movies in particular.
In a perfect world this list would be longer.
In case you needed a reminder: GIANT ROBOTS ARE AWESOME.
We loved the preview trailer, now we get a full trailer for Guillermo Del Toro’s monsters vs robots flick, “Pacific Rim”. And seriously, that Idris Elba speech you guys.
Including how A GIANT ROBOT used AN OIL TANKER as A BASEBALL BAT.
But can you blame him? This thing is horrifying.
This is all kinds of creepy! And not just because it stars Katie Holmes

It’d be a lie to say I’m not excited about a movie featuring Jim Henson creations. Guillermo Del Toro and The Jim Henson Company are rebooting Pinocchio, based on the illustrations of Gris Grimly. Dark fairy tales without teen angst? Yes please.
