The Avengers: Age of Ultron
For Marvel, San Diego Comic-Con is a playground where fans and news outlets tightly congregate to get a sneak peek at the upcoming slate of MCU films. We already knew that the studio behind some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters would be making an appearance, and Marvel Studios confirmed as much today, but that's all they're telling us! Still, based on our previous knowledge, there are a few things we can expect.
Andrew Garfield previously said that he'd like to see Spider-Man and The Avengers team up on-screen, but that doesn't mean his wants have become reality. Despite alleged photographic evidence of the web-slinging actor moseying around on the 'Avengers 2' set, it all turns out to be one big hoax!
We've known for some time that Andy Serkis, mo-cap actor extraordinaire, was playing a consulting role on 'Avengers 2,' assisting both Mark Ruffalo and James Spader with their work on Hulk and Ultron, respectively. Recently there were some rumblings, however, that Serkis himself had a part in the film.
We've heard rumors of a 'Planet Hulk' movie since early last year, but everyone from Joss Whedon to Mark Ruffalo have denied those claims. And, here's the thing: they're right (sort of). There won't be a Planet Hulk movie (sort of). But, it's what Whedon, Ruffalo and Marvel aren't telling you about the future of Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that prove there is some truth to the 'Planet Hulk' rumors after all. MAJOR 'AVENGERS 2' SPOILERS AHEAD!

Considering the huge splash they made when they last appeared together to promote the first 'Avengers' film, this feels like a no-brainer.
After 2003's infamous 'Hulk' and 2008's forgettable 'The Incredible Hulk,' audiences simply weren't displaying any kind of affinity for Dr. Bruce Banner and his smash-happy alter ego. But actor Mark Ruffalo and writer/director Joss Whedon finally got it right in 'The Avengers' and now, according to Ruffalo, Marvel is finally considering giving the big guy a third shot at a solo act.
