Another year, another Comic-Con. The 2014 San Diego pop culture ultra-bonanza was a bit light on major “the next Superman movie is also a Batman movie”-esque reveals. But if the major studios and networks weren’t out in full force, they still showed off a significant amount of buzzworthy footage from the major projects that promise to define the next few cycles of cultural chatter. Below, the 10 best videos that made their debut during Comic-Con 2014.

Over the weekend we heard from Guillermo del Toro, who revealed that he’s “still working on” his long-planned adaptation of Justice League Dark, and now the filmmaker has offered up a few more details on the current status of the project, which will delve into the supernatural side of the DC universe.
“Right now the plans are to make it a feature,” said del Toro when asked if he would consider making Justice League Dark for television. “We are deep in the screenplay writing phase. I think we see eye to eye [Warners and DC and myself] on what the movie is and I think it will serve really well as a movie. We came in and I tried 2 or 3 different structures for the screenplay. I wrote a 75 page template for the universe… that takes a year… We needed to create a new story. Then we need to go to a screenplay writer. One draft takes between 6 and 8 months. »

It can be DC, Marvel or any other Comic company, you choose but without a single doubt I have to say that there is nothing better than Seeing that anticipated comic you want hit the shelve, there is nothing better than seeing that comic you grew to love and learn cover to cover become an adaptation, it does not matter if it's a series, Movie, animated movie, a short you name it, but Nothing delivers more entraintment than Comics & their many ways of life span. For me like many others it began with My parents buying me toys, I had everything from Batman, X men, Hulk, Robin, Superman, Etc...over the time I started to grow I found myself glued to the TV eating up every hero show from X-men (all the series from the 90's- 2011), Batman ( Btas, Tnba, Bb) Superman (Stas) Justice League & Justice League Unlimited, during my »
Quick as it came, the San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us. While there was plenty of things shown at the event for fans to digest, there were some notable absences as well this year. Rumors had been swirling for months about what would be showcased, and now that the event’s over I was surprised at some of the no-shows.
I can’t honestly say I’m disappointed that these things below didn’t make an appearance at Sdcc. We got some awesome stuff, and saw more on some projects than anyone expected (Mad Max, Batman v. Superman teaser, Godzilla 2). Still, I can’t help but feel a little saddened, if only because I’m looking forward to some of these so much. It’s important to take this article as such. It’s not meant to be negative, nor do I feel like Sdcc was a “failure” (as »

San Diego Comic-Con has come to a close. though we will be parsing through all of the news that filtered out of Hall H for the next few months, weeks . Ok, years. Marvel has said that they have at least eight films on their slate through 2019. Warner Bros. has confirmed a Justice League film. And Fox has revealed plans for at least two movies in The Fantastic Four franchise. Why didn.t we get any concrete news about those projects? Listen. I.m not saying that he studios Had to provide information on all of these upcoming projects. It is their job to tease upcoming films, as much as it is their job to deliver on those blockbusters. Watching great superhero films always trumps talking about possible superhero films. But we really thought we were getting some juicy news about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his involvement in the DC »

The filmmaker revealed that he is still working on the Warner Bros project based around the magical characters of the DC Comics universe.
Speaking at Comic-Con International in San Diego, he revealed that the forthcoming Constantine television series will not interfere with his plans for the movie.
"I'm still working on it," he told Superhero Hype. "Sandman doesn't figure in the Dark Universe. We have Deadman, we have the Demon, we have Swamp Thing, we have Zatana, we have Constantine, but DC and Warners have been very clear that they are trying to keep those properties separate, so when the time comes they can unite them, once they know they're quantifiable.
"Batman, Superman, Green Lantern... everyone eventually will come together. Right now, they're allowing us independence."
Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the forthcoming Gotham television series, »
San Diego - It wasn't the best of Comic-Con's, but it certainly wasn't the worst. We didn't find out everything we wanted to know about "Doctor Strange" or "Justice League" and favorites such as "Doctor Who" and "Mockingjay" didn't hold panels, but when you get over two minutes of amazing "Avengers: Age of Ultron" footage it sort of makes up for it. Granted, some big names might have been missing from panels for "Game of Thrones" or "The Walking Dead," but they still packed Hall H and entertained the masses. Is there room for more TV shows in the main hall? Sure, but probably only if you expand Sunday's programming. This year the organizers spread out the best movie panels and there were significantly fewer dead blocks of time for smaller movies than in previous years. And special movies such as "The Boxtrolls" benefited with a captive and entertained audience »

Dark Horse, the elder statesman of independent comics, continues to show no signs of slowing down during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Even though Marvel now holds the rights to Star Wars, its biggest licensed comics property, Dark Horse struck back by announcing a several creator owned titles in different genres as well as an expansion to the Mignolaverse and a sequel to one of the most beloved novels of the past century. Dark Horse also won some Eisners in a wide variety of categories showing the company’s comics appeal to many types of readers from kids to people who wouldn’t normally read comics.
1. Hellboy and the Bprd Miniseries
Even though Batman has gotten most of the publicity, another comics character is celebrating a big anniversary. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Hellboy’s first appearance in the Seed of Destruction miniseries by Mike Mignola and scripted by John Byrne. »

When you’re at Comic Con, it’s all about the superheroes. Even when waiting on line at a nearby Starbucks, there via a flat-screen above, Batman plays on a continuous loop. They are omnipresent. And while everyone here ponders DC’s planned film-verse and how they can possibly fit Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman into one film, DC has quietly proven these queries moot albeit via a completely different medium. On television, DC has crammed a plethora of Justice League characters – The Green Arrow, Black Canary, The Flash – all onto its flagship show: Arrow. This year, DC attempts to further its monopolization of the CW Network by spinning off The Flash as its own series. At a group roundtable for Arrow and The Flash, I spoke with Executive Producer/Writer Andrew Kreisberg about what to expect on the third season of Arrow, the series game plan for The Flash »

The consummate under-dog, CW’s Arrow quietly staked a claim in the periphery of the DC-verse at the outset of the 2012 TV season. I don’t think anyone expected much from the show – and early episodes struggled to balance its comic-book aspirations under a TV-friendly budget. But over the course of its first season and especially in its second year, Arrow slowly came into its own, deftly balancing sci-fi heavy tropes within a surprisingly grounded moral quagmire. It became clear that Arrow himself wasn’t the prototypical hero he or the audience initially believed. As the dark nuances of the titular character were explored, the show grew by result. Much of the credit to the show’s qualitative success can, of course, be laid at the feet of star Stephen Amell. Amell has since become the poster-child for the DC Television verse – and with his dapper looks and sharp stare »

Here’s a pleasant surprise: Bert, Cookie Monster, and Murray came to the EW Hideout at San Diego Comic-Con all the way from Sesame Street. They were pretty excited to be there, and really, really like comic books. Except for Bert. He’s into bottle caps.
Unfortunately, there’s no booth for that at the convention, but that’s okay—wait ’til you see how excited they all get when they find out there’s a Justice League movie.
Also, Bert has seen Entourage. Who knew they even allowed HBO over at Sesame Street?

During a interview with Guillermo del Toro at Comic-Con Shh asked the director about the Justice League Dark project that he's been developing. He was asked if this would connect with any of the other DC properties currently in development, like Constantine or Sandman. This was what he said,
“I’m still working on it. Sandman doesn’t figure in the Dark Universe. We have Deadman, we have the Demon, we have Swamp Thing, we have Zatana, we have Constantine, but DC and Warners have been very clear that they are trying to keep those properties separate so when the time comes they can unite them, once they know they’re quantifiable. Batman, Superman, Green Lantern… everyone eventually will come together. Right now, they’re allowing us independence.”
When it comes to the Constantine TV series that's coming out and how that figures into the equation he said,

For those unfamiliar, Ted Grant is a championship boxer in DC Comics, who became entangled in the criminal underworld and developed the costumed identity Wildcat to clear his name. Created by Batman creator Bill Finger and artist Irwin Hasen in 1942, Wildcat is a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and trained several members of the Justice League including Black Canary and Batman.
Nothing is known about his part in Arrow, such as when it will take place, how long he’ll be on the show, or who could play him, but executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated that he’ll have “some interaction with Laurel,” meaning he’s probably tasked with training her »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman Returns‘ Brandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.
The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »
