Film and TV's biggest annual convention, the San Diego Comic-Con, has wrapped up for 2014 and there was no shortage of incidents to set geek hearts aflutter.
From superhero showdowns, to a crossover involving two of Fox's most beloved families, Digital Spy rounds up 9 highlights from this year's Comic-Con below:
1. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman make a dramatic debut
Warner Bros opened up their panel by bringing out the big guns, namely Batman v Superman stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and director Zack Snyder. The studio unveiled the first look at Gadot's Wonder Woman before sending Hall H into a frenzy with footage of the Dark Knight and Man of Steel staring intensely at each other.
2. Game of Thrones introduces its season five cast
Craig Ferguson compered the panel for HBO's small screen hit, with the big headline being the reveal of nine new cast members for season five. »
Now Comic Con has passed and the buzz surrounding Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy (read our review here) has temporarily subsided, it’s only natural that we bring you some news of next years biggest movie, Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Over in San Diego we’ve seen the release of a number of concept posters showing off some of the film’s major talents, as well as a still showing off Black Widow’s transportation of choice, a brand new electric motorcycle. The motorcycle, known as Project Livewire from Harley Davidson, is not intended for sale to the public, but just as an introduction to the future world of electric transportation. Obviously The Avengers are able to pull a few strings. You can check out Harley Davidson’s official announcement after a set of awesomely illustrated posters that will probably be far more impressive than any Photoshopped job in the future. »

For months, we've known Ultron, the main baddie in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, would control an enormous drone army. Heck, just this past weekend Marvel Studios released new posters with Ultron's minions battling The Hulk, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Captain America and Iron Man. Below, is apparently armor from one of those drones and it was supposedly spotted a block away from where the San Diego Comic-Con convention took place.

Let's talk about bodies of work. As in an entire career versus another entire career. Come on. Focus on the acting. Focus on the movies. Fine, both Scarlett Johansson and Dwayne Johnson get most of their attention from being really, really good looking. Each actor had a new movie out this past weekend; Johansson in Luc Besson's Lucy, Johnson with Brett Ratner's Hercules. What happens when these two get into the ring and battle it out? Let's find out in this week's Film Face-off with Scarlett Johansson versus Dwayne Johnson. The Box Office Scarlett Johansson Johansson's three biggest films are Marvel's The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Iron Man 2, in which she plays...

There was some confusion at the Marvel Hall H panel this weekend, when the studio presented their Ant-Man test footage. Studio president and producer Kevin Feige announced that Evangeline Lilly will be playing Hope Van Dyne, which was also stated in their press release. She is actually playing Hope Pym, who eventually turns into a character known as Red Queen in the MC2 Universe. She is the daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, and its unclear why or how Marvel mixed the name up.
Here is the re-issued press release:
Since ABC aired their Marvel documentary earlier this year, we’ve known that Tony Stark, with the help of his Hulkbuster armor, would be taking on the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The concept art above does little justice to how the actual showdown is shaping up so far — we got a glimpse of it in the Comic-Con footage. The extended Comic-Con preview confirmed that the Hulkbuster armor, like in the comics, encases Stark’s regular Iron Man armor. The studio put the Hulkbuster arm on display at their convention floor booth.
The big question is though, why are Iron Man and Hulk fighting at all? The last couple of times we saw the two heroes, their bromance was in full bloom. Tony Stark and Bruce Banner literally rode off into the sunset together at the end of The Avengers, and at the end of Iron Man 3, Banner »

Hollywood Records and Marvel are releasing three albums from Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy on Tuesday, July 29.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Deluxe soundtrack features classic 1970s songs from the film, plus score by composer Tyler Bates (“Watchmen,” “Slither,” “Dawn of the Dead”). Music plays a major role in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy as the great songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way.
Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, “One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape [Awesome Mix #1] that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that’s the only thing he has left of his mother and that’s the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. »

Comic book culture has always been popular, however in recent years it has seen something of a more general resurgence, with a flurry of comic book adaptions being made into films.
With the huge success of the Avengers series, with the film Avengers Assemble hosting a star cast, audiences cannot seem to get enough of superheroes. Of course, the translation from comic book to big screen is not always smooth. Sometimes the characters do not live up to their printed version, leaving some diehard fans feeling underwhelmed or even betrayed. With a number of featured Marvel games on site, Gala Casino have put together a comparison list inspecting original characters and their movie interpretations.
The story of how Steve Rodgers became Captain America is pretty much the same in both the comic and film, and you could even say that Chris Evans, who plays the captain, looks just like his comic book counterpart. »

Marvel came, and Marvel conquered. Hall H was in a frenzy in the moments leading up to the Marvel Comic-Con panel. Fans who had camped out for as much as two days were chanting the studio’s name, doing the wave, and speculating what big announcements would be made. Sadly, there were no new movie titles announced, just a release date for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which is set for July 28th, 2017. Marvel’s focus was on their 2015 releases, which are Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. The Avengers panel didn’t disappoint, and you can watch it in its entirety here and read a description of the footage that was shown here. While the Ant-Man panel didn’t have as much to show since they don’t start filming until August 18th, they had plenty to discuss and even put some footage together to give fans »

Here's what Robert Downey Jr. has to say, teasing how the Hulk and Hulkbuster confrontation begins. »
This year’s Comic-Con was chock-full of peeks at upcoming films and TV shows, but one of the highlights was seeing the first footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron. The film looks to be quite ambitious in nature, especially when it comes to the villain Ultron, played via motion capture by James Spader. While it will be a while before the general public gets to see any footage from Joss Whedon’s sequel, Marvel unveiled some props at its Comic-Con booth, offering the first look at Ultron Mark 1, Cap’s broken shield (ominously alluded to in the footage), a piece of the Hulkbuster Iron Man armor, and Black Widow’s new ride. All of these played a significant role in the teaser footage we saw from the film. Take a look at the Avengers: Age of Ultron prop images after the jump, but for full context with regards to how they fit into the movie, »

In the email, the Loki actor thanked Whedon for writing him the "coolest part".
"I am so excited I can hardly speak," Hiddleston wrote.
"The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn't know where to start.
"Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for Loki on every page, jumping back and forth, reading words in no particular order, utterances imprinting themselves like flash-cuts of newspaper headlines in my mind - 'real menace,' 'field of obeisance,' 'discontented, nothing is enough,' 'his smile is nothing but a glimpse of his skull,' 'Puny god.'"
Comic-Con International 2014 is officially over and we escaped with an underwhelming number of surprise announcements when compared to expectations leading up to this year’s event. Coming into the San Diego event, Marvel Studios had scheduled new six unannounced films in addition to a few the studio still hadn’t titled from previously.
When we spoke to Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige on Saturday morning, there were nine unannounced projects with release dates in 2016-19. We knew (and still know) one of those is for the untitled Captain America 3 coming May 2016. With so many other dates set, we expected to learn about a bunch of them during the Marvel Studios panel at last week’s San Diego Comic-Con ...

In a normal summer, a debut like the estimated $29.0 million opening for Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" would be reason for its creators and distributor to rejoice. After all, the movie did better than pundits had predicted (in the low 20s), and it enjoyed a healthy per-screen average ($8,067 per venue). As an action star with a track record, Johnson would be said to have delivered on his promise, and there would be backslapping and cigars all around for a $100-million PG-13 movie that would surely earn back its investment from both domestic and overseas audiences (who bought an estimated $28.0 million worth of tickets) .
And yet, that opening was good enough only for second place. Coming out more than 50 percent ahead to debut in the No. 1 slot was "Lucy," a French-made R-rated action movie starring petite Scarlett Johansson, shot for a modest (by action standards) $40 million. Playing on 422 fewer screens than "Hercules, »

Well, this is interesting. Despite reports coming out of Comic-Con that Evangeline Lilly would be playing a character known as Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man, it has now been revealed that she will in fact be Hope Pym. If the name is familiar, it's because that's the daughter of Hank and Janet Pym in the MC2 alternate universe which also features Spider-Girl. She has a twin brother called Henry and eventually becomes the villainous Red Queen following the death of her parents, something she blames the Avengers for. While we could see this play out in the movie, it still seems far more likely that the Lost star will be a new version of The Wasp, a character that Joss Whedon had at one point included in an early draft of The Avengers. We don't know what role Janet will play in Ant-Man, but she will obviously be far too »
