Comic Con is done, and it's now time to sort out the winners of the various related contests. Up first is the IMAX swag bag, for which I asked you what announcement you'd most like to hear at Comic Con.
If I were giving out an award for accuracy of predictions, williamripamonti would take it in a heartbeat.
Rather than working on another reboot (which would frankly be too soon to bring on screen, especially after Nolan's trilogy success) DC will Introduce the new cinematic Batman in "World's Finest", a Superman/Batman movie that will actually start a Marvel Phase One-styled road through the main DC heroes movies that will finally culminate in a Justice League movie. Batman origins, well known to the audience, will be explored in a few key flashbacks in the fashion of Superman's ones in Man of Steel.
At least one wish in the thread came true. Most of the others, not so much.
Bad, bad jonap!

Galb reads my mind (admittedly, not hard to do)
More Walking Dead! And by more I mean let's take it the CSI route of different cities! Walking Dead NY! Walking Dead Las Vegas! Walking Dead Miami! New characters! New stories! I'm thinking a Horatio Caine type character that always wears glasses and is cool under all circumstances. I can see it now...
Lilly: Billy has been bitten! He tried saving Shawn and Jimmy! HELP!
Billy: I thought...I thought I could save them...But...
(Lilly begins crying. Horatio kneels down to inspect Billy's bite.)
Horatio: Billy thought he could save them both...
(Horatio removes his glasses)
Horatio: (standing up) But it seems he was dead wrong. (points gun at Billy's head and pulls the trigger)
Boss_Fight's actually would be perfect, and was nearly the winner...
Daniel Day Lewis will be playing Doctor Strange as part of Marvel's Phase 3. The acclaimed method actor wont be in attendance as he is presently in the Himalayas learning magic.
dnjscott with the fan-fic
I have been declared the head of a super conglomerate of Cartoon Network, Syfy, DC, and Marvel and can restore them all to their glory days, which is to say when I was a kid. Or, since porn's been a topic lately, maybe they invented a time travelling porno that combined Counselor Troi, Slave Leia, and Yvonne Craig's Batgirl
Me too, MasterFlinter. Even with my misgivings on PR I'd like to see films like it do well.
