This was the panel I was looking forward to the most, but I must admit that I am a tad bit underwhelmed.  Some of it looks interesting, but some of it does not.  I'll definitely be swinging by the booth, in any event.

As long as Batgirl doesnt ruin the DC panel like every year with her absurd accusations, ill be happy . I  love the DC panels

All I know is that DC better surprise the world with the announcement of one or two additional solo films.......and AQUAMAN needs to be on that list.

If not I hope Marvel announces Namor. Ah I hope Marvel announces Namor regardless. They may not know it but they're in a race to tackle Atlantis and the King of the seas in their respective universes.

Wonder Woman, Aquaman & Flash.  That is my preferred order, but I'd take any of them.  A badass Aquaman movie would do wonders for improving the "Street Cred" for that character.

I'm sooo hoping a big announcement is going to be made.  I'm crossing my fingers, and going to try my best to make the panel.

 I just tried to post a comment 3 different times with no links and no swearing and no naming of other sites and it doesn't get published? WTF?

Hey death4sale,  I (and a few others) have been having trouble with posts that have had multiple lines/paragraphs for some reason.  It is annoying as hell.  (Breaking it into multiple posts seems to help.)

Threre seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.  Some will post, some will not.  I wish Mania would PRINT AN ERROR MESSAGE to the user for failed posts, stating the reason it failed.
