As far as weeks go, this was a big one — mostly due to a sudden burst of updates from the "Iron Man 2" camp. However, while the week's most popular stories were certainly filled with headlines involving Iron Man, War Machine and Whiplash, a few other topics managed to carve out a big place for themselves on the site.
We saw updates on the "Deadpool" movie and the next big-screen Batman adventure, and we even had some big news on the comic front, with news about the next writer scripting Superman's adventures, and new comics related to "Gossip Girl" and "Paranormal Activity."
Here's how the week's Top 10 stories stacked up:

9. Hmm. Does "Avatar" star Sam Worthington have a secret connection to "The Avengers" he's not telling us?
Rumors, spin-offs, cameos and behind-the-scenes art dominated this week's headlines, and the week's top stories reflected that trend. From "Spider-Man 4" and "Thor" to "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and, yes, Chuck Norris, it was a week of varied projects.

Halloween Week is nearly over, but we still have "Devil's Night" to get through! This week was full of Halloween-related news, features, interviews and previews—all with a comic-book connection.
