San Diego Comic-Con, the annual comics convention to rule all comic conventions, came to a close on Sunday. The event like every year saw the release of over a dozen teasers, trailers, sneak peeks and whatnot. Warner Bros’ panel was easily the biggest with trailers for Aquaman, Shazam and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald being released. Footage of The Lego Movie 2 and Wonder Woman 1984 were also screened during the event.
But that’s not all. Marvel made its presence felt too. There was a dedicated Venom panel with Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed and Ruben Fleischer in attendance.
Here are all the important trailers that debuted during Comic-Con.
Aquaman trailer saw Jason Momoa’s superhero finally agreeing to fight for the throne of Atlantis against Patrick Wilson’s King Orm/Oceanmaster. The battles look amazing even Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) got a few seconds to show off what he can do.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer gave us a more detailed look at Johnny Depp’s dark wizard.
Godzilla: The King of the Monsters’ trailer was probably the best this Comic-Con. The titular king will face similarly sized ancient monsters, including the three-headed dragon Ghidorah.
Shazam’s trailer was surprisingly funny and light-hearted. Zachary Levi did really exude an impression that he is just a kid awed at his own superheroic, ripped body. DC films universe, now called Worlds of DC, seems to have taken a lighter, or at least more diverse turn, which is welcome.
Glass: M Night Shyamalan is a horribly inconsistent director – fluctuating from masterpieces to utter tosh. Glass, thankfully, looks like it would be the former.
Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff, is returning soon – on August 6 to be precise – and AMC has made it clear that the show will catch up with the original.
