By Josh Wilding - 7/30/2014

Comic-Con is the busiest time of the year here on CBM, and so it's entirely possible that you may have missed at least some of the biggest stories this past weekend. Overall, It was a hit and miss few days, as on the one hand we got a first look at Wonder Woman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and a possible casting choice for Doctor Strange, while on the other there were no major announcements from either Marvel Studios or Warner Bros. about their upcoming movies.

We do have Guardians of the Galaxy 2 of course, not to mention some leaked footage footage from Batman V Superman (which is still live) and some great new trailers and details for the likes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow and The Walking Dead. The fact is that both Marvel and Warner Bros. know they can make announcements about their future movies at anytime and people will still be excited. The Comic-Con crowd meanwhile are happy enough with exclusive footage from the likes of Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and descriptions of both can be found below.

Of course, it's not just the San Diego Comic-Con floor where news breaks as a writer may have been found for Justice League and an image of The Thing from Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four reboot may have been leaked! Be sure to check out 25 of the biggest and most exciting news announcements below and then be sure to let us know your favourites in the usual place.

Josh knows whats up. That BvS teaser reveal was amazing.

These pretzels are making me THIRSTY

Well done Josh, you get a Maisie.

TheAbaryMan369 - 7/30/2014, 8:53 AM
Pretty great list. Two things though, first: I'd move the Agent Carter stuff WAY up. Come on, The Russos are directing two episodes! That's spectacular news!

Second, I think the Dr Strange stuff should be much lower since he isn't technically confirmed. Other than that, great stuff.
Batmaniac - 7/30/2014, 8:54 AM
The BvS teaser was PHENOMENAL!
Jollem - 7/30/2014, 8:54 AM
there goes Josh with his dc bias again
SuperCat - 7/30/2014, 8:56 AM
Wonder Woman reveal for the win.

Doopie - 7/30/2014, 8:59 AM
Who doesn't enjoy a WW reveal, could have been slightly more revealing but still...save that for the porn parody
Nomis - 7/30/2014, 8:59 AM
The Wonder Woman reveal was the best for me... but the Batman V Superman teaser stole the show!
Omarvls - 7/30/2014, 9:00 AM

Desrow - 7/30/2014, 9:05 AM

"MY FAVORITE COMIC COMPANY DC CONQUERED MARVEL AT THE SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2014"


You're happy about DC conquering Marvel at a Comic Con that many are calling one of the worst in recent time cause it got more tweets?

LOL

Call it for DC conquering Marvel when Dawn of Justice out grosses Age of Ultron at the box office


Jollem - 7/30/2014, 9:16 AM
0megaDaGod - 7/30/2014, 9:16 AM
The BvS footage, Deadpool footage, and MAD MAX trailers all blew my mind

Of course the best footage was the footage I DIDN'T get to see. smh

It was nice to get a nice summary GIF tho

DrKinsolving - 7/30/2014, 9:18 AM
Snyder's footage ROCKED, still waiting to see the Marvel footage or at least some pics, haha.
Jollem - 7/30/2014, 9:19 AM
@Nomis - i'm just kinda irked that the rock didn't show his cards



momoa either. but the rock actually said he was going to be in a dc movie. gettin' sick of this momoa fellow playing hard to get >:(
Omarvls - 7/30/2014, 9:19 AM
The only Legit way for DC Only fanatics like @DCGuy

To say DC Conquering Marvel is for Dawn of Justice to out gross Age of Ultron at the box office

Remember ALMOST EVERY poll has people more excited for the reboot of Superman then a 4th showing of Iron Man and we all know how that turn out

I for one think when Dawn of Justice is released it has the potential to reach 2 billion if it moves to July 2016
0megaDaGod - 7/30/2014, 9:23 AM
@Abrary

True, the Agent Carter news was huge. The Russos just directed one of the greatest CBMs ever and now they're directing TWO episodes of the show, in addition to Joe Johnson coming back to the world he created

That was big for me mainly because it meant Marvel was willing to throw in their movie talent to work on thier TV shows, which could have a huge payoff down the line

Imagine Alan Taylor doing Kun Lun...

Other big news

-Joaquin possibly playing Strange
-Terrio possibly penning JL
-The Thing looking like he won't be a complete design failure
-Stroll playing Yellojacket
-Mockingbird in AoS
-Ras in Arrow
-WONDER WOMAN - She actually looks really good
-Someone claiming they say Superman punching DOomsday during the intro to the BvS footage
-The TMNT directors claiming they want to include Bebop and Rocksteady
-The Rock potentially playing either Shazam or Black Adam
-All those damn Avengers Age Of Ultron props

It was a dissapointing Con, considering the possibilities, but it was still a pretty awesome Con
DCGuy - 7/30/2014, 9:26 AM
@Omarvls you're comparing the sequel of a team movie to team up movie of only 3 heroes no sir let's compare JL with Avengers thats fair.
Nomis - 7/30/2014, 9:26 AM
@ joll - LOL!!!!!

Man I wished he announced who he was playing, Shazam or Black Adam already!
ALmazing - 7/30/2014, 9:30 AM
BvS takes the cake, Marvel dropped the ball, but a really disappointing SDCC overall.
Omarvls - 7/30/2014, 9:32 AM
@DCGuy

Have faith brother
I got my money on Dawn of Justice

But Yeah of course
It's the Trinity and I assume some big time cameos of Cyborg (badass btw) and Aquaman

You can't say DC won if Dawn of Justice kills Ant Man like you can't say
Marvel won If Avengers 3 beats Wonder Woman

This is Avengers v. Justice League

0megaDaGod

That 9 Avenger puzzle poster is EPIC
tonytony - 7/30/2014, 9:41 AM
the fans won.
MercwithMouth - 7/30/2014, 9:41 AM
Don't care who "won", don't think anyone did. It was a great weekend to be a CBM fan, that's for sure.

My faves:

Avengers footage description and soundbite
BvS footage
Wonder Woman reveal - I love the costume, and I hope it's NOT blue and red.
Agents of SHIELD - Mockingbird and Lucy Lawless - YES!
Constantine trailer

Things I dislike

Anything to do with "Gotham"
Joaquin Phoenix as Strange - I REALLY hope not. He's phenomenal, but he's no Dr. Strange

But, the biggest thing to happen in the history of CBMs happened on Monday... That Deadpool footage... I came...twice

@Pasto

You got a little obsession forming... Go back to Cobie, she's better.
Jollem - 7/30/2014, 9:43 AM
dc and fox brought the thunder

the AoU poster is pretty neato as well
ManCalledSting - 7/30/2014, 9:44 AM
Wash, rinse repeat. Can't you kids come up with new comments to troll with?
Jollem - 7/30/2014, 9:44 AM
wait...why have people been downplaying this con? this con rocked
