The Biggest Surprises Of Comic-Con 2013 | 8. Spider-Man Came To The Con In Character, And Electro Followed Him
8. Spider-Man Came To The Con In Character, And Electro Followed Him

The Amazing Spider-Man’s panel featured one big surprise besides the expected footage reel – Andrew Garfield showed up in his film costume, swinging towards the convention centre in a funny short before striding on stage and conducting the first part of his panel duties in character as Spidey. Jamie Foxx’s Electro was the star of the short clips from the movie itself, though, with the energy-manipulating villain clearly defined as the film’s big bad. Though we did also see early moments with Paul Giamatti’s Aleksei Sytsevick, the man destined to be known as Rhino. What we saw raised hopes that the Spider-sequel will be more defined and muscular that the first film, with a firmer grasp on the quippy style that makes Spidey work. Read the full story.

2 Dangerous Move
They need to do it right, it sounds good but it's easy for them to go wrong here. Nevertheless it's an interesting move and it would be exciting to see the outcome. More

3 Bad idea
Not sure/happy about having a Supes sequel with Batman in it, fine if they did a standard Superman sequel then a standalone film with Batman like Avengers, but I feel its just a marketing ploy to relaunch a new Batman actor and will diminish the new superman legacy etc More

5 RE: Batman/Superman
I don't get this whole 'Superman's would make Batman redundant' line of thinking. There's been a number of crossovers done in the past. The 'Public Enemies' storyline for instance which is really good and the 'World's Finest' episodes from Superman TAS. If the characters couldn't combine, then I hardly think they would've survived past the first crossover. More

6 Batman/Superman
If they were going to include batman in the Man of Steel sequel, then it was silly of them to make Superman as invincible as he was. I mean, he could lift ships. While Batman is a more interesting character altogether, he would sadly, get squished by Batman in a second, and would be a useless companion. More
