Are you excited about Comic-Con 2006 beginning tonight in San Diego? Maybe? You need a few reasons to get excited? Well, how about Spider-Man 3, Transformers, Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer, Snakes on a Plane and Eragon; just to name a few.

Comic-Con Blockbusters

According to Variety, it will again be the big-budget pictures who dominate the energy over at Comic-Con. Some of the bigger films this year include Transformers, Spider-Man 3 and the Fantastic Four sequel. Though we are expecting huge budgets by next summer, this year's Comic-Con will give some of the smaller films an opportunity to pop up and shine.

Thanks to the fact that films such as King Kong and Harry Potter won't be stealing attention away from other films this year, some of the 'smaller' films will get added attention. One such film is New Line's Snakes on a Plane. Created almost entirely on hype, Comic-Con 2006 should help give the film more attention and help expand this same hype just in time for its August release.

The smaller films, however, may experience some added competition from television, which is also working to fill in the gaps left open.

This time, it's TV that is looking to fill the void and capture fan fervor at Comic-Con. All the major networks have significant plans for the confab, along with cable stalwarts like Sci Fi Channel, USA, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

"In the last few years, TV's participation has stepped up a notch," Comic-Con marketing director David Glanzer said. "There's a lot more sci-fi and supernatural -- 'genre product' -- on TV right now."

Series that will be hopping around the convention include Heroes, Jericho, Who Wants to Be a Superhero? and Battlestar Galactica.

Stay tuned for updates.
