hunger games tributes comic con 'The Hunger Games' stars to sign autographs at Comic Con 2012Although the next “Hunger Games” movie doesn’t start shooting until later in 2012, stars of the hit franchise movie will be at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego to promote the film. Sadly, it won’t be any of the trinity — Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson or Liam Hemsworth. The good news — some of your favorite (but deceased) tributes will be there.

Lionsgate has lined up Alexander Ludwig (Cato), Amandla Stenberg (Rue), Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh), Isabelle Fuhrman (Clove), Jack Quaid (Marvel) and Willow Shields (Prim) for an autograph signing at its booth. If you stop by #4035 on Saturday, July 14 at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., you could get the signatures of some of the stars in honor of “The Hunger Games” release on DVD and Blu-ray August 18.

If that’s not enough “THG” action for you, MTV has pinpointed a few panels that could get you excited for “Catching Fire.” Some of YA’s hottest authors will talk about dystopian literature on Thursday, July 12, at 3 p.m. in Room 25ABC, while “THG” costume illustrator Christian Cordella will discuss bringing Suzanne Collins’ vision to life in the “From Concept to Reality” panel on Saturday, July 14 at 5 p.m. in Room 24ABC.

Are you disappointed J-Law and co. won’t be at Comic-Con?
