The cast of 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' was on hand to promote their upcoming film at Comic-Con 2013. Leading lady Jennifer Lawrence was asked what the most difficult scene was for her to film -- and the actress had an immediate answer.

"I had to eat raw fish," said Lawrence, cringing. "Not sushi raw fish. I held a fish and had to eat it. And for the record, it tastes exactly how it smells."

Earlier at Comic Con: Flanked by his superhero celebrity peers, Hugh Jackman attended the packed 'X-Men' panel. Clips from upcoming installments were aired and left diehard fans feeling largely impressed.

Jackman said it was his fourth time attending Comic-Con, but 'coming as Wolverine is by far the greatest thing to do.' He chatted about the much buzzed-about sixth installment of the 'X-Men' series, which this time focuses solely on Wolverine and will hit theaters on Friday, July 26.

Superhero fans were in for a big surprise on Saturday at Comic-Con.

“It’s official, we are going to make another Superman movie,” announced 'Man of Steel' director Zack Snyder at a packed panel.

According to Moviefone, the tentative plan is for the new Batman to first appear in the upcoming sequel to 'Man of Steel' -- then the two heroes will star in an official team-up movie.

The cast of 'Veronica Mars' treated fans to a highly-anticipated sneak peak of the upcoming movie. Stars of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' also stopped by to discuss their film, slated for release next year.

"It’s one of the most exciting, if not the most exciting chapter in Peter Parker’s life," said director Marc Webb.

The annual pop-culture convention features some of the biggest names in TV, movies and comics. Stay tuned throughout the weekend for interviews, cast Q&As and sneak peaks of TV shows such as Defiance and The Walking Dead.

At the panel for the Big Bang Theory on Friday, fans got a huge surprise when Stephen Hawking introduced the panel by speaking the theme of the hit show.

While the writers remained tight-lipped on the next season of the series, they did hint that one of the beloved couples may be taking their relationship to the next step. Fans also got another huge surprise when an 'audience member' asked a question dressed as Princess Leia, but then took of his mask to reveal that he was actually actor Johnny Galecki.

This year, some really big stars came out and made the rounds at the event. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone were in attendance along with other standouts like Jack Black.
