This year's San Diego Comic Con was huge for DC fans. In addition to the crazy reveal of Zack Snyder making a "Superman vs. Batman" movie, DC also announced their plans to produce a film based on the Scarlet Speedster, better known as the Flash. This, of course, would push the "Justice League" release date back even further, with the DC team-up movie now scheduled to hit theaters sometime between late 2016 and early 2017.
Clearly, introducing DC superheroes in their own separate films before "Justice League" is a good idea. If it worked so well for Marvel Studios and "The Avengers," how could it not work for Warner Bros. and DC? There are still a number of questions to be answered regarding "The Flash," with the most pressing question being who will be playing the fastest man alive? We have five picks for you, just after the jump! »

Okay, we'll be honest with you. The best thing about Comic-Con isn't the panels or the parties or the cosplay or those delicious eight-dollar hot dogs. Those are all terrific, but there's actually something even better than any of that.
The best thing about Comic-Con is the strange, wonderful, bizarre and often completely random things you'll overhear attendees, staff members and sometimes even celebrities say as they traverse the convention floor, Hall H, the bathrooms, the press room, the hotels and all the other locations that make up the San Diego Comic-Con experience.
Here are some examples of what we've heard so far. And remember, sometimes the best context is no context at all.
• "I squealed a couple times." — Adult male after Marvel panel showcasing "Avengers 2," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Captain America: The Winter Solider" and "Thor: The Dark World."
• "How the f**k do they do this to us ever year? »

Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, 2013.
Directed by Hiroshi Hamazaki.
Iron Man is framed by a technological terrorist, and sets out to stop him and clear his name.
As Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark prepares to launch Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the theatrical release of Iron Man 3, Marvel is looking to capitalise on the heightened awareness of the Armored Avenger with the straight-to-video anime tie-in Iron Man: Rise of Technovore. Unfortunately they won't be selling any more cinema tickets off the back of this, being that it's one of the weakest animated features to come out of Marvel since, well... ever.
Co-produced by Madhouse, the Japanese animation studio behind the likes of Ninja Scroll »
