The Biggest Surprises Of Comic-Con 2013 | 9. No Ant-Man Or Doctor Strange
9. No Ant-Man Or Doctor Strange

One surprise was what wasn't there from Marvel. While they brought out Tom Hiddleston, in costume and in character as Loki, to accept the crowd's submission and adopt them as his own, and while the Captain America team were out in force, there were no big announcements about the Marvel projects beyond 2014. There was no casting for Ant-Man, no further word on the Doctor Strange plans, so it seems that whatever Marvel's cooking up next isn't quite ready to come out of the oven yet. Perhaps now that Edgar Wright's launched The World's End things will move more quickly on one of those films at least, but for now there's no big Marvel announcement to match Superman/Batman. Read the full story.

"What we saw raised hopes that the Spider-sequel will be more defined and muscular THAT the first film," surely THAN is the operable word here? Don't mind me I'm just saying, I mean you wouldn't want to look unprofessional would you? More

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
