Not to be topped by Warner Bros.' big reveal that there will be a Superman/Batman duo movie released in 2015, Marvel took center stage to close out Saturday night's San Diego Comic-Con programming by dropping a bomb of its own: The second installment of "Marvel's The Avengers" will be called "Age of Ultron."

There was no mention of Vin Diesel, who has hinted extensively at involvement in Marvel's Phase 3, though fans (and MTV's own Josh Horowitz) theorize that he could play Vision, a major player in the Ultron story.
