Comics Alliance covered the Geoff Johns/DC Comics panel and shares updates on the Flashand Green Lanternmovies. The plural of "movies" pertains partly to the (obvious) intent for GL sequels.Deadline does the TOLDJA on confirming that Mark Ruffalo has officially (and obviously) signed to play Bruce Banner/The Hulk in The Avengers. Also, Superhero Hype shares (obvious) confirmation from Joss Whedon that Jeremy Renner is Hawkeye in The Avengers, but as for Nathan Fillion as Ant-Man, Whedon and Marvel claim Ant-Man won't be in The Avengers. EW highlights its own "Women Who Kick Ass Panel."

has an exclusive look at the Comic-Con poster for Guillermo del Toro's surprise remake of The Haunted Mansion.
