Some San Diego Comic-Con 2013 LEGO news has been trickling out recently...

First up, as in with recent SDCCs, LEGO will be offering up some exclusive minifigs for the event. There is no detail on how to acquire these (protip: go to SDCC), but they've shown what you could possibly pick up. For you exclusives fans, alternate suit Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Green Arrow, and black suit Superman are all up for grabs:

Sticking with comic-related tidbits, it was also revealed that a new DC Super Heroes set will be released next January: The Riddler Chase. Unsurprisingly, it will also feature Batman, but maybe more of a surprise will also include The Flash:

There will be a LEGO movie (creatively titled "The LEGO Movie") next February, so LEGO is taking the SDCC opportunity to announce merchandise for the upcoming feature film. They are promising some 17 sets with varied themes and minifigures.
