    'The Dark Knight Rises,' 'Man Of Steel' & More Skip Comic-Con As Major Studios Stay Away This Year

    Warner Bros, DreamWorks, Disney & The Weinstein Company Pass On San Diego; Marvel On The FenceThe comic/geek crowd are either the most important group to court for genre films or their influence is overstated; it really depends on who you ask.
