San Diego International Comic-Con 2011: Weekend Updates
Continuing the trend of Hollywood bringing its all to San Diego, "Cowboys & Aliens" premiered at Comic-Con to rave reviews, reports E!. Meanwhile, The Daily Mail notes that the star of the upcoming "Spider-Man" film Andrew Garfield, who donned a cheesy Spider-Man costume for a panel, was seen looking at a piece of paper that resembled a contract -- perhaps confirming that he was legally obligated to wear the suit.

Director Francis Ford Coppola conducted a rather unorthodox panel for his new horror film, "Twixt." The LA Times reports: "the director moderated his own panel, distributed paper masks of Edgar Allan Poe and sang along with footage."
Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart attended a panel for their film "Snow White and the Huntsman," which is set to start filming next week, reports the Chicago Tribune. The film's heroine will wear armor and carry a shield -- a far cry from the image of the classic Disney princess.
Paul Reubens, also known as Pee-Wee Herman, told audiences that he's working with Judd Apatow to produce a new movie, according to App.com.
"Gleeks" will be happy to know that at the "Glee" panel on Sunday, the show's executive producer announced that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Chris Colfer will stick around for the fourth season, despite an earlier statement to the contrary by the show's creator Ryan Murphy, reports Ace Showbiz.
At the "Family Guy" panel, it was announced that several A-listers will be coming to make guest appearances on the show, reports TV Buddy. Among them will be Cate Blanchett, Ryan Reynolds, Mark Harmon, and Ricky Gervais, who will voice a dolphin that befriends Peter.
The cartoon series "Beavis and Butthead" is returning to the air this October, and Comic-Con goers got a sneak peak of what's in store, reports Juxtapoz.
In gaming news, David Jaffe of "Twisted Metal" told a panel that his game is dependent on its "M" rating and that "without blood, it felt a little weird, frankly," reports GameSpot. GameSpot also tells us that Capcom is introducing a line of merchandise featuring a crossover between Hello Kitty and Streetfighter.
Furthermore, Capcom unveiled "Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3," according to Forbes, and G4 reports that "Gears of War 3" will not only have aim-assisted casual mode, but will also feature the voice talents of Isaiah Mustafa -- known to most as the "Old Spice guy."
