'300: Rise of an Empire' was among the many offerings from Legendary Pictures' Comic-Con 2013 panel presentations on Saturday, Jul. 20 in Hall H.

And here we were just counting our blessings that we get a new 'Godzilla' movie, featuring the legendary giant, stomping lizard monster.

Much like how fans are pining for Wolverine and Spider-Man to team up with the Avengers in a cinematic blowout, so too are they hoping for a Superman and Batman crossover.

Now sources say that this will actually happen.
Though a release date hasn't yet been announced, Jon M. Chu is already talking up 'G.I. Joe 3' at Comic-Con 2013. And if there's one place you want to start promoting your geek-friendly property, Comic-Con is where you want to be.
