Stars share anticipation for 44th annual Comic-Con

Comic-Con veterans share what they're most looking forward to at the 44th annual edition of the international pop-culture celebration this week in San Diego: - "My No. 1 most anticipated film of the year is `Gravity.' I have recurring nightmares about drowning or being cut adrift in a spaceship, so it seems like it's going to be my ultimate horror movie. I cannot wait to see it." - "The World's End" filmmaker Edgar Wright.- "Hall H. There is no place on earth like that. I can't wait to get out there and show the fans `Wolverine' stuff. ('The Wolverine' director) Jim Mangold and I are gonna tell everyone about what we're gonna do. It's so close to our release that we're not teasing something that's nine months away." - "The Wolverine" star Hugh Jackman. - "Neil deGrasse Tyson is remaking Carl Sagan's `Cosmos,' which is a series I'm still obsessed with, and so to see a new version of that will be exciting. I'll probably hunt that down." - "Sleepy Hollow" star Tom Mison.- "It'll be interesting to see what questions ("Star Wars: Episode VII" director J.J. Abrams) is given and how he answers. I guarantee you he's playing everything very close to the chest. He's going to want to keep it as quiet as possible." - "The Heart, She Holler" star Patton Oswalt.- "I always get nerdy there. Every time we go down there, Alex (Kurtzman) and I buy weird T-shirts and toys. We make a point of getting a few comic books we've never heard of and buying some dorky toys that we have to justify to our wives." - "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" screenwriter Roberto Orci. - "Last year, they had all the Batmobiles on display from the `60s all the way up to `The Dark Knight,' and then there was that `Walking Dead' obstacle course on the baseball field where the zombies actually chased you. I'm looking forward to whatever there is like that this year." - "Supernatural" actor Rob Benedict.
