* NextMovie asks a few burning questions related to Comic Con.
2. Can Kristin Stewart carry “Snow White and the Huntsman”?
Considering there are three different modernizations of “Snow White” being worked on in Hollywood right now, “Snow White and the Huntsman” has a lot of competition out there. Luckily, this “Snow White” has two big advantages: “Twilight” superstar Kristen Stewart as Snow and “Thor’s” Chris Hemsworth as The Hunstman who decides to spare her life. Will they be enough to help this fable stand out from the crowd? We should find out when the first footage screens at Comic-Con.
5. Will Taylor Lautner destroy Comic-Con?
It’s hard to believe that once upon a time, Taylor Lautner was in very real danger of being dumped from the “Twilight” franchise because he wasn’t considered big enough to play the werewolf Jacob. Well, is he big enough now, America? Considering he’s become one of the hottest stars in Hollywood, Lautner’s presence may be more than even Comic-Con can handle, which is saying something from a venue that has hosted Darth Vader. But can thousands of Twihard tweens successfully mix with furries and cosplay rangers? The world will soon find out.
6. How big will the “Twilight” buzz be?
Speaking of “Twilight,” Comic-Con 2008 was dominated by the first film in the franchise, which came from off the radar to become one of the biggest stories of the Con thanks to a gaggle of shrieking fans that turned the “Twilight” panel into probably the loudest and most impassioned event in Comic-Con history. So how will fans top that now that the final films are being rolled out? Let’s just say it’s a good thing there are hundreds of superheroes around to keep things from getting too out of hand.
