Third day of Comic Con here and we were lucky to join the highly anticipated panels of 20th Century Fox for their blockbuster movies 'Dawn of The Planet of Apes' , 'The Wolverine' and 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

Due to be released on July 18 of 2014, in 'Dawn of The Planet of Apes' panel we saw director Matt Reeves joined by stars Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Andy Serkis who plays the role of our favorite ape from the prequel, Caesar.

The sequel features the stories of a group of scientists in San Francisco who are battling to stay alive in the aftermath of a plague that has nearly wiped out all of mankind. While our fine furry friend Caesar tries to maintain control of his group of intelligent apes. Andy Serkis, who played Caesar in the previous movie said that it was exciting to return to play Caesar one more time since he had played him from an infant to a leader. This time though, Caesar is in a position where all apes are stronger; he's a father and a husband and this time its all about the choices he makes when the humans arrive. We are also told that Caesar learns how to communicate with more than just sounds, and includes sign language and gestures in his repertoire.

When asked what the entry point of the film was, Keri Russell commented that she had joined the cast because of Matt Reeves and she trusted his sensibility in taking the story on. She said that in the movie, each community is trying to take care of themselves independently and that's something to look forward to see how it unfolds the story line.

Jason Clarke on the other hand, found it extremely exciting to have Cirque du Soleil come in and pull off the stunts, so the entire movie does not depend on CGI stunt works. (We love Cirque du Soleil and can't wait to see how that turns out).

On ending, Matt Reeves was asked whether it helps to know where the story ends exactly and he commented by saying that it helps him personally. He said there are stories that are about what happened and there are stories that you know what happened but don't know why, and what's so great about the franchise is that humans are portrayed as the animals and it provides a way to look at society.

Well that sure sounds a little bit more dramatic than we expected but nevertheless, we'll be getting ourselves a pair of early tickets when the movie hits theaters on July 18, 2014.

The panel also hosted 'The Wolverine' director James Mangold and the Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman. The lowdown on the movie is that it has become a personal and fresh journey about the Wolverine character. Hugh told us that we will be able to understand Wolverine a lot more than before. And although he can't jump tall buildings or take down a 747, he has his awesome claws to strike people down and has healing as an added boost. According to James Mangold, the toughest part of the movie was how to go about portraying a character who constantly heals while all those around him die away. He said they had to start off with a Wolverine who has retreated from relationships and is a man who has lost everyone dear in his life. A short clip of the movie was also played showing Logan slicing through a samurai in Japan, while the samurai finds himself exclaiming: 'What kind of monster are you?' after the Wolverine pulls out the katana from his chest. We hear the movie will be played in 3D on July 26. That's not even a week from now! Check out the trailer here if you haven't seen it already:

After this, Hugh Jackman introduced Brian Singer to take over the stage for the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'. The star studded ensemble included Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Shawn Ashmore who joined the utterly epic Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, along with director Singer, writer/producer Simon Kinberg and producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker, . One of the highlights of today's panel was  the introduction of Omar Sy joining the cast as Bishop, and Even Peters who will be seen playing Quicksilver in the upcoming movie that will hit the theaters May 23rd, 2014. As far as we could tell, the Stewart McKellen duo got the most applause from the audience but Peter Dinklage was in a close second since he's taken a place in our hearts in his 'Game of Thrones' role.

During the banter, Halle Berry was asked what it was like to be playing Storm to which she replied that she sees her as the Earth Mother of the group and thats one thing that has resonated with her on a personal level. She was ecstatic when they called her to offer the role, it didn't take long for her to reply with: 'send me the wig!'. All the cast said they were very excited to be back with the X-Men, and Ellen Page even commented that the first one wasn't as big in size and scale compared to sequel. We were shown some fresh footage from the movie while its still being shot in Vancouver and got introduced to Omar Sy's character Bishop who plays a guy from the future, with red eyes and dread locks as long as Bob Marley's. On the other hand, Even Peters's character Quicksilver we we're told is faster than any of the other characters which a personality to match. Excited yet? So are we!
