/Film got the scoop that Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass will make an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con, showing footage from the film. The panel will take place on Thursday, July 23 towards the end of the day. Vaughn will be in attendance, along with some of the filmâ€™s cast members (to be announced later). My bet is the footage will be pretty tame or else the panel will be a 17 and up affair. via /Film

You know what would increase attendance at comic book conventions around the country?Â Cage matches.Â Not cage matches with the GLOW or those Octagon fighters, but epic battles between the Editor-in-Chiefs of the comic book publishing world. Since the New York Comic Con is taking place this weekend, and since NYC is the supposed center of the universe, why not kick off these EIC Cage Match Battles with the head honchos from DC and Marvel. FIGHT!
