9 Biggest Surprises of Comic-Con 2014

Some are still buzzing with energy, while others are a little sad that it's all over for another year. There are even those dour sourpusses who feel this year was nothing but lackluster. Even if that's the case, Comic-Con 2014 wasn't without its surprises. Maybe there weren't as many as in years past. And the fact that neither Marvel nor DC announced any of its upcoming titles still stings. But, dang that footage! Both studios are clearly on the path to releasing two of the biggest movies of all time! It's clear that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be vying to knock Avatar off its perch as the top grossing movie of all time. But seeing the latest and first footage from these superhero behemoths wasn't the only fun studios had with their fans and ever-expanding audience. There were a couple of curveballs thrown in the mix that truly knocked us for a loop. We definitely didn't see the return of King Kong and Ash coming. Check out the 9 biggest surprises of Comic-Con 2014!

That's it for Comic-Con 2014. Those were the big-ticket items. We didn't include the Avengers: Age of Ultron footage, because that wasn't really a surprise.

Did we miss something you fell in love with? Let us know?
