Sure, this year's Comic-Con event was steeped with geeky goodness, with plenty of movies, TV shows and -- if you looked hard enough -- even comic books arriving with presentations and panels intended to satisfy every fanboy and girl in attendance. But what wasn't being royally hyped that maybe missed out this year?

1. The Adventures of Tintin: Based on a classic Belgian comic strip, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's trilogy of motion-capture films has been in the works for a while now, with Spielberg having wrapped filming on his first chapter in March of 2009. Surely, in the sixteen months since, they've could've had a polished teaser prepared for the San Diego masses. Co-writer Edgar Wright and co-stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost were already in town plugging their latest ventures, and Jackson might've been able to make an appearance while waiting for The Hobbit to finally get off the ground. (Spielberg's already cracking away at getting War Horse in theaters next August -- that's right, before Tintin even hits.) However, just because Tron: Legacy decided to give everyone a taste a year and a half out doesn't mean that these two wanted to follow suit; don't be so surprised if this lot dominates Hall H come this time next year.
