Steven Soderbergh is making his first trip to Comic-Con.

The indie auteur is joining mixed martial artist Gina Carano for a peek at Haywire, Soderbergh’s first foray into action movie territory, on July 23. 

Relativity Media said Friday it will hold its Hall H presentation from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. where it will unveil first looks at Haywire and the period thriller The Raven. An hour-long panel for its big-budget Greek epic Immortals is also scheduled from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m on the same day.

Raven stars John Cusack, Luke Evans, and Alice Eve will be present at the panel, as will director James McTeigue. There will also be an autograph signing somewhere on the convention floor for the thriller, which puts Edgar Allen Poe on the hunt of a serial killer.

For Immortals, Relativity is showcasing the movie’s large cast: Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Stephen Dorff, Freida Pinto, and Mickey Rourke. Producers Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari will also be present

And let’s not forget Shark Night 3D! The horror movie isn’t getting a Hall H presentation (sniff) but is still getting a push with a private reception on Wednesday, July 20  and a day of interviews on Thursday, July 21. Hardly seem fair, right?
