Welcome to 2014, and the more things change, the more they stay the same. In fact, our first post of year was the latest tease from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," and considering some of the top grossing movies of 2013 were franchises and comic movies, it's not a surprise that today brings with it even more superhero news.

Dwayne Johnson Pain and Gain

Welcome to 2014, and the more things change, the more they stay the same. In fact, our first post of year was the latest tease from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," and considering some of the top grossing movies of 2013 were franchises and comic movies, it's not a surprise that today brings with it even more superhero news.

Following "Agent 47," Marvel is continuing their with One Shot short film series with "All Hail the King" being the next entry. Super Hero Hype dug up the news from the U.K. ratings board, and has the nuts and bolts of the upcoming "Thor: The Dark World" release, which will include the One Shot short along with the usual deleted scenes and other baubles (check out the rundown here). But the question for fans will be: what exactly is this "All Hail the King" about?

Is it the Ben Kingsley/Mandarin short that was teased during the fall? Or is it something closer to plot of 'The Dark World' with Slashfilm suggesting it'll tie into the ending "where Loki takes the throne of Asgard posing as Odin. Something showing how that confrontation and abduction went down...or maybe a short revealing Odin’s current whereabouts." Something to think about for now.

Meanwhile, over at DC Comics, they're talking to an actor who has made a name by inserting himself into big league franchises ("Fast & Furious," "G.I. Joe") and making them even bigger. Dwayne Johnson tweeted (via Bleeding Cool): "We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk @ActionTilson."

Is "Lobo" back on track? Is The Rock part of "Batman Vs. Superman"? Take your guesses to the comments section and check out the trailer for the "Thor: The Dark World" Blu-ray.
