Green HornetYes, it's the return of the Back-Issue Bin here on Splash Page, where we count down our top stories from the week and tell you which post was the most popular among readers.

This time around, the first trailer for Michel Gondry's "Green Hornet" made a case for itself as one of the week's biggest news items, while a bunch of "Jonah Hex" interviews packed the top stories. Meanwhile, a fan film featuring everyone's favorite Gothamite brought in Hollywood-sized traffic, and "The Last Airbender" bent the online elements in its favor.

Captain AmericaMarvel Studios' choice of an actor to play Captain America is expected to be announced any day now (and we're a little surprised the news didn't hit last night, to be honest), and a potential (but in no way official) list of the five leading candidates found its way to the 'Net this week. All of this anticipation surrounding the star-spangled hero was reflected in the headlines, with much of the week's top stories involving Cap or the rumored contenders for the role.

However, ol' Steve Rogers wasn't the only draw this week, with buzz surrounding a potential sequel to M. Night Shyamalan's "Unreakable" getting people talking (and clicking), and the record-breaking sale of "Action Comics" #1 (featuring Superman's first appearance) leaving its mark on the comics landscape. Our chat with the "Penny Arcade" creators carved out a nice little niche for itself among the week's biggest headlines, too — so three cheers for webcomics!

Spider-ManAnother week in the rearview mirror, and it's time again to look at how the week's stories stacked up. While the big announcement at DC Entertainment was clearly one of the week's most buzzworthy news items, updates from the "Spider-Man" movie front continued to stake their claim on the top headlines, too.

Regular readers might also notice that the Back-Issue Bin has been moving around in the weekly schedule a bit recently. Once a Friday fixture, we're moving the list to the weekend to account for stories that post late in the day on Friday.

So, now that we have all that out of the way, let's get to the week's Top 10 Headlines, shall we? Read More...

SupermanIt should come as no surprise that this week's big news involving Spider-Man and Superman dominated the headlines, with our coverage of all the big questions, background information and potential developments surrounding each announcement filling up much of the week's countdown. However, some cool new footage from "The Last Airbender" and an update from the "Deadpool" movie team also generated a lot of buzz around the 'Net.

As always, here are this week's Top 10 Stories, counting down to the #1 story of the week here on Splash Page.

Watchmen 2Celebrity comics dominated this week's headlines, but a fair share of high-profile heroes carved out a place for themselves among the week's most popular posts.

A potential "Spider-Man" casting slip set the 'Net on fire just a few days after our weekly poll asked readers who should play Peter Parker. Rumors surrounding potential "Watchmen" sequels of spin-off projects in the comics world ignited speculation over a movie sequel, and we had some fun with the possibilities. And somehow, amid all of that, we still managed to slip in review of the new "Planet Hulk" animated feature.

This is your weekly back-issue bin, so read on for The Week's Top 10 Stories.

Green LanternIt was a green week here on Splash Page, with both Hal Jordan and Bruce Banner's alter egos making multiple appearances in this week's popular headlines. But Green Lantern and Hulk weren't the only superheroes generating super-sized buzz.

"Iron Man 2" and "Deadpool" updates numbered among the week's biggest posts, and joined a pair of decidedly less superhero-centered items involving "The Losers" and the death of "Catcher in the Rye" author J.D. Salinger. A rare update from M. Night Shyamalan's adaptation of "The Last Airbender" also got readers' attention.

Spider-ManWhen this week started, "Spider-Man" was looking for a director, there was still a chance Superman could make a cameo in the "Green Lantern" movie, and the "Tonight Show" drama was still escalating with Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. Now, just a few days later, the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot has a filmmaker (and he has some great ideas about source material), we know that Clark Kent won't be appearing alongside Hal Jordan on the big screen, and the biggest story of the week from the TV world didn't involve Leno or O'Brien.

But that's not all of the surprises in this week's recap. Read on for the Top 10 Stories of the Week — because they might surprise you! Read More...
