Jessica Alba told the crowd at Comic-Con that she got in touch with the dark side for her return to 'Sin City.'

The 'Fantastic Four' and 'Dark Angel' star is reprising her role as exotic dancer and revenge seeker Nancy Callahan in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' a prequel to the 2005 graphic novel adaptation 'Sin City.'

"I just really connected with the dark side of Nancy," Alba told fans at the pop-culture convention. "It was hard to detach from that until the movie was over.

"The second time, I felt comfortable. I felt like a woman," Alba said.

Alba was joined at the panel with 'Sin City' co-stars Josh Brolin and Rosario Dawson, as well as co-directors Miller and Robert Rodriguez.

Meanwhile, several members of the Avengers descended on ComicCon to debut the first footage from the upcoming superhero sequel. Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr were on hand with other cast members from 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron', including Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders.
