Just when she thought she was out …
The official trailer for the “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was released at Comic-Con today and, judging by the footage, things aren’t looking so good for Jennifer Lawrence’s heroine, Katniss Everdeen.
Just as with the books, the film picks up after the last arena’s battle. Katniss and fellow winning tribute Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) have returned to their home in District 12 and she is trying to move forward in her dark, grim world. But things don’t stay safe for long. In the midst of a districts-wide revolution, Katniss and Peeta are thrown back into the arena for a sort-of tributes all-star edition.

In a discussion about how DCs cinematic gameplan would roll out to compete with the uber success of Marvel and the Avengers. Man of Steel being the first in the newly established shared universe made total sense but how they would progress was always going to be the real story. Could they really just copy the Marvel formula step for step. If not then how would they ever get to the eventual Justice League?
