Marvel Studios, the reigning king of Comic-Con hype, once again emerged with the most talked-about presentation in San Diego this weekend.
The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is so bright Hulk might as well have been wearing shades tonight as Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron took over Hall H with star-studded panels and outstanding footage.

Then the studio kept its Comic-Con game tight with a jam-packed panel for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
Legendary Entertainment ruled Hall H with the busiest presentation of Comic-Con so far.
The exceedingly genre-friendly Legendary brought a veritable three-ring circus to San Diego, announcing the monsters Gojira will face in Godzilla 2 and beyond, as well as the development of Skull Island, a King Kong prequel.
Then there were also illuminating panels for Warcraft, Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak, and blackhat, a cyber-crime thriller from Michael Mann.
Officially, Warner Bros. didn't include Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on its roster of panels at Comic-Con today.
Still, fans knew that the studio wouldn't miss the chance to rustle up hype for the lynchpin of DC's cinematic future. They weren't disappointed, as Hall H was treated to first look footage of Bats and Supes preparing to throw down.
Much more importantly, Warners revealed the first look at Gal Gadot in costume as Wonder Woman, sharing the image online almost immediately after its debut in San Diego.
The wait for Marvel's Hall H panel is almost over.
To make the final hours of speculation feel even longer, Marvel Studios has unveiled the final pieces of the mega-poster that's been slowly coming together, finishing it off with two snappy Avengers: Age of Ultron concept art posters featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) combating Ultron drones.

Daniel Radcliffe made his Comic-Con debut today, bringing the wicked little horror tale Horns to Hall H.

Zack Snyder is set to direct Justice League back-to-back with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So a screenplay for DC's all-star ensemble is going to have to be ready to go lickety split. But who will write Justice League?
If the studio has its druthers, then it'll be the guy who wrote Batman v Superman.
