San Diego Comic Con Day 2

Second full day of the San Diego Comic Con brings more news from various movie and comic book projects. Let the link fest begin.

Chuck Season Three poster - Just thought the image was cool as it reflects the posters of the 80's such as the Cannonball Run films.
Tron Legacy Test Footage - Click the link for QuickTime video and download of test footage with a Light Cycle chase that looks very cool. It’s a realistic look that keeps the feel from the first movie that is pretty sweet to see.
Batman 3 Production Next Year - Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon) let slip that production for Batman 3 could begin next year. Later he backtracked and said the sequel still might be 2-3 years away.
Jonah Hex poster - Click the link for teaser poster for the upcoming film based on the DC comics character. Megan Fox looks amazing but her waist is creepy tiny.
