0722_recap

Comic-Con 2013 was another megastar-filled extravaganza -- with some of the biggest celebs from TV and film invading San Diego to announce a ton of HUGE news.

If you weren't one of the 130,000 people who attended this year's convention, don't worry.

While some of the studios keep the footage they debut on lockdown for months, others are more generous to fans who couldn't afford to fly to Southern California for the weekend. 

Brand new trailers for "The Hunger Games," the "Veronica Mars" movie and "The Walking Dead" all made it online shortly after their Comic-Con premieres -- and new info about top-secret films like "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Guardians of the Galaxy" and a new "Avengers" sequel has been trickling in.

Check out 10 Things from Comic-Con You Can't Miss below!

2.) The Dark Knight is Coming Back

While Christian Bale probably won't be back, Warner Bros. announced that Batman will appear in the "Man of Steel" sequel, expected in 2015. 

The Hall H panel included a reading from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" and a video showing Superman's logo superimposed on the Batman logo.

No other details are available, but it's clear Warner Bros. is starting to form their own "Avengers" team -- leading to an eventual "Justice League" flick.

3.) Mulder & Scully, Together Again!

"The X-Files" premiered on FOX 20 years ago this September -- and to celebrate, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny made their first Comic-Con appearance together ever during a TV Guide-hosted panel.

The two reminisced on working together on the long-running show and it's clear the chemistry between them is very much alive. Could we see a new movie in the future? The stars are game -- and creator Chris Carter said the fan turnout for their panel was very "inspiring."

Joss Whedon appeared at the very end of Marvel's Hall H panel, revealing the official title of his followup to the ridiculously successful 2012 flick. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" is due in 2015.

In the comics, Ultron is a big bad robot hellbent on destroying humanity, but Joss tells Marvel LIVE that he'll be changing the villain's origins for the movie -- saying "We were crafting our own version of it where [Ultron's] own origin comes more directly from the Avengers we already know about."

Whedon also says the movie will be "darker" than its predecessor.

 5.) Happy Hunger Games ... Again

They've only been filming for 13 days, but the footage from Marvel's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy" impressed everyone who saw it. Sadly, we can't show it here -- but the film's comedic tone and ridiculous characters (like a machine gun-wielding raccoon) were a hit.

Marvel also confirmed the film's final cast: Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Drestroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Djimon Hounsou as Koranth, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.

The panel for "Breaking Bad" opened hilariously -- with Bryan Cranston walking out wearing a mask of his bald, onscreen alter-ego. 

After removing it and placing it on the table, Aaron Paul decided to slip it some tongue. It was definitely a wild way to kick off the presentation, which included a look at the first minutes from the show's final season.

According to EW, it involves a flashforward ... and a skatepark "in the unlikeliest of places."
