Hunger Games cast bids their farewell to the franchise
The Hunger Games franchise is coming to an end with Mockingjay Pt. 2, and sadly so are the Comic-Con appearances.
The cast and producers were at the convention for their panel, eagerly answering questions from fans in the audience.
Producer Nina Jacobson has some choice words for their end of the franhise. “The end is emotional for all of us,” Jacobson said. “We want to deliver the emotion and the politics of it, all the things that [author] Suzanne [Collins] wanted to say. But we don’t want to say good bye to each other. We all wish there were seven or eight books, not just three. It’s a very emotional conclusion. It’s emotional for us, but it will be emotional for the fans.”
One fan asked Jennifer Lawrence what is similar about her and her famous character, Katniss Everdeen, to which she responded in a very candid fashion “Nothing about us is similar. She’s brave and I’m an actress.”
Check out a few clips from the panel below! More are available on the franchise’s official Instagram page.

William Shatner addresses Star Trek 3 rumors
Will William Shatner appear in Star Trek 3? The actor was recently asked this question by a fan at Comic-Con, but according to Shatner our guess is as good as his!
The Star Trek alum told the audience a story about how he was contacted by J.J. Abrams way back in 2008 in regards to secretly appearing in his 2009 adaptation. This news was leaked by a reporter at an airport, who Shatner swears he didn’t tell. The incident, according to Shatner, seemed have rubbed Abrams the wrong way.
We didn’t get a solid yes or no from Shatner, and considering how Abrams was apparently interested in having him appear (at least at one point in time), his appearance in Star Trek 3 is still a very real possibility!
Revamped Flash costume revealed
Warner Bros. TV brought an entire showcase of hero costumes to Comic-Con this year, but the Flash costume in particular seemed a little different. Season one’s Flash has a costume with a red and gold emblem on the chest, but the costume shown at Comic-Con sports a white and gold emblem. What does this mean, exactly? Well, the most obvious answer is that the Flash’s costume will get a minor face lift for season 2!

Batman v Superman cast will hit the con floor for a surprise autograph session
Well, I guess it’s not a surprise anymore! Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will be part of the Warner Bros. panel Saturday at Hall H, but Deadline is reporting that they’ll also be heading over to the DC Entertainment booth to sign autographs while they’re in town.
But as to when they’ll show up, that’s not for sure. They could either show up Friday night or on July 11 after their Hall H appearance. Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) will possibly show up as well, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Halle Berry confirms that she would be up for a Storm standalone movie
Wolverine got his own, so why not Storm? When the actress was asked if she would be down for a Storm movie away from the X-Men franchise, she responded by saying “absolutely.” This doesn’t mean one is in the works, but with the help of her fans it very well could be. She urged her fans to speak up and spread the word!
