It's been a rough week for The Walking Dead — so much so they considered canceling their appearance at San Diego Comic-Con altogether.

Instead, according to moderator Chris Hardwick, the cast decided to carry on their tradition for the fans.

Hardwick, who also hosts aftershow Talking Dead, began the Fear The Walking Dead panel with a moment of silence for stuntman John Bernecker, who passed away last week after a stunt gone wrong.

Then the TWD panel began with showrunner Scott Gimple reading a prepared statement honoring the fallen performer, saying:

Ben Affleck Reportedly Done Playing Batman!

Batfleck, we hardly knew ye!

Warner Bros. is finally on the right track to roll out a successful DC movie universe that rivals Marvel — but it looks like the Justice League might already be starting to disassemble.

The studio is reportedly planning for a future of Batman movies without Ben Affleck, and is working to "gracefully" usher the movie star out of the franchise altogether!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, WB is moving forward with plans to make a new Batman trilogy from director Matt Reeves, which the studio claims it still wants Affleck to star in.

But their inside source says the studio is secretly working on plans to get rid of Affleck's Batman within an upcoming DC movie, either having him retire or, more likely, killed off for the sake of continuity in the overall DC story arc.

In the comics, other characters have taken up the cape at times, including former sidekick Dick Grayson; could this be related to rumors WB is in talks with Armie Hammer, who was cast as Batman back in 2009 in George Miller's ill-fated Justice League movie? Are they preparing him to take over?? Hmm…

THR cites Affleck's age as a major reason for the potential change. He's currently 45 years old and would be approaching 50 around the time The Batman — which has still yet to be written, btw — comes out in 2019 (or later).

No matter what happens, be prepared for a major shake-up in the DC movie universe!

With each new president of the 21st century, we've also gotten a new Spider-Man. (Think about it!)

While some cynics don't think we need another version of the web-slinging superhero, it's nearly impossible not to love Tom Holland's pubescent portrayal of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming!

But how does Holland's younger, squeaky-voiced superhero stack up against the Spideys of cinema past?

By "past," we mean three years ago when Andrew Garfield donned the Spidey suit — or, if that's not your style, what about Tobey Maguire's aught portrayal that lasted a full trilogy?

Get ready for Spider-Man: Homecoming by ranking the actors who played him on the big screen (below)!

Say hello to the friendliest neighborhood Spider-Man yet!

Superhero fans have been approaching the latest Spidey reboot with reasonable caution — we mean, it was only a few years ago when Andrew Garfield played the masked superhero.

But we're happy to report that critics are falling in love with Spider-Man: Homecoming — now officially tied in with the Marvel Cinematic Universe — as this time around, old cobwebs have been replaced with fresh, amazing new additions. (Financed by Tony Stark, of course.)

Critics were mostly impressed by the merging of action with all the teen drama and youthful sass straight out of a John Hughes movie, and Tom Holland holds the adolescent thread together with his wide-eyed, aw-shucks take on the beloved web-slinger.

Eat your heart out, Tobey Maguire!

Jaden Smith Is A Depressing AF Batman In His New Music Video!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJaden SmithComic Books

We knew he'd find another reason to dust off the old cape and cowl!

Jaden Smith infamously dressed up as the Dark Knight at events like his high school prom and Kim Kardashian's wedding.

But after seeing him spring into "action" in his Batman music video, maybe it's best the 18-year-old leaves the superhero shenanigans for his dad.

He's not the hero we need, but the one we deserve right now: an angsty, irresponsible teen who gets into fights with Batman impersonators on Hollywood Blvd.

And you thought Batman v. Superman was depressing

We always liked the idea of Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2. His deadpan delivery will perfectly offset Ryan Reynolds' silliness.

But now the star has shown he's going to be more than a match for his costar. He's getting BUFF AS HELL!

In a series of Instagram videos over the past couple weeks, the 49-year-old has been sharing his journey into becoming Cable. And now he really does have a superhero bod! Look (below)!

We love how humble he is about the whole thing. Up until calling Ryan his bitch that is. Ha!

Of course, Josh isn't the first star to get ripped for a role…
