In one last run of Hollywood announcements before the show goes pulls back in wait for a February 14 day of media and guest declarations, Mark Millar's Kapow! Comic Con in London today said it will be airing an exclusive superhero comic book movie on the Sunday of the April 9 to 10 show...but which one?

As the below press release states, the event is bannering the screening as "Movie X" with a promise that playing new unseen comic blockbusters will be an annual occurrence at the show. The only other clue is that the 2011 film will have a solo superhero as its focus.

There are a number of superhero movies set for release in 2011 with the closest blockbuster matching the releases description being May's "Thor" followed closely by June's "Green Lantern." But until the pick is revealed on stage, let the guessing begin.
