The Avengers will be mighty again. In another relaunch for Avengers NOW, Marvel announced during their panel that the new Captain America, Sam Wilson, will be a central character leading an Avengers team starting in November.

"Captain America and the Mighty Avengers" will also see the return of The Amazing Spider-Man to the superhero team, following his return to form after a disastrous few months in which The Superior Spider-Man feuded with fellow Avengers and effectively left the team.

The series will be written by Al Ewing and drawn by Luke Ross. It will be quite a new adventure for fans to experience the former Falcon lead a group of Avengers.

Throughout the convention, Marvel has been revealing a huge "Avengers: Age of Ultron" multi-concept art poster which when pieced together, would reveal one gigantic image of all the Avengers battling a cluster of Ultrons.

Today's piece featured fellow newcomer Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor Johnson). In the background, Vision (Paul Bettany) can be seen hovering above the action with his back somewhat turned. While it isn't much, this was the first glimpse of the android we've seen to date.

'The Walking Dead' debuts season 5 trailer and return date

"The Walking Dead" announced its return October 12, 2014 for a fifth season on AMC following a jam packed panel that featured stars Andrew Lincoln, Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun and a host of other brilliant actors that will continue to portray their roles in the new season.

The most exciting thing for fans was the debut of the new season five trailer. Nothing is as it seems when it comes to Robert Kirkman's zombie story and the trailer easily left fans with many questions, especially the ending tease that saw Emily Kinney's Beth alive and well.

The buzz during day two of SDCC definitely belonged to "The Walking Dead."
