No Fantastic Mr. Fox at Comic-Con?

There was some speculation that Fox might “spring the first Fox footage” at the 2009 Comic-Con International in San Diego (July 22-26).

/film reports that such a reveal appears rather unlikely now (“What You Probably Won’t See at Comic-Con 2009”):

Now that the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday schedules have been announced for the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con International, lets take a look at some of the films that won’t be making an appearance at the convention…

20th Century Fox’s teen horror film Jennifer’s Body and Wes Anderson’s animated film Fantastic Mr. Fox are oddly missing…

Of course, the below list is subject to change. Panels and projects could be added, or surprise appearances might be made (for instance, Warner Bros has a panel where they could surprise with Ninja Assassin). Also, some of these films might very well have a show floor presence, advertising presence (District 9 was all over last year’s Con), or viral marketing launch at the Con. But judging from the officially announced schedule, this is the list of movies that won’t have a panel presence at the Con.
