San Diego’s Comic Con has once again come to a close. Fans have made their way home, hung up their cloaks and are, most likely, eagerly waiting for next years’ convention.
Notably this year there were a lot of trailers. And we mean a lot. On Saturday alone fans were treated to Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Deadpool and X-men.
In case you did miss anything, we’ve rounded up all the best trailers and special clips shown, from Con Man to Star Wars, plus the leaked Suicide Squad, X-men and Deadpool trailers.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
As expected, Warner Bros. released the massive trailer for their upcoming superhero brawl, and it had enough DC references to leave fans going crazy. One shot that stood out was Robin’s suit, tagged by the Joker, leading many to believe Jared Leto may be appearing in this film before Suicide Squad.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Behind the scenes
Lucasfilms really went all out on their Comic Con panel, bringing in Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill to chat with the crowd of adoring fans. They also showed this interesting bit of behind the scenes footage that features Leia in full costume and confirmed Simon Pegg’s appearance in the film.
This one’s a leaked trailer, so watch it while you still can. Featuring a stellar cast including Will Smith and Jared Leto, this DC film, set in the same universe as Batman v Superman, looks set to be dark, violent and, most importantly, action packed.
Another leaked trailer with another incredible cast. After a fantastic panel featuring Hugh Jackman – who is so far not confirmed for this film – Fox decided to show a three minute trailer teasing their latest X-Men film. Again, watch before it gets taken off the net.
One last leaked trailer, this time of the Merc-with-a-mouth, Deadpool. This one's not quite as good quality as the others but features some pubescent jokes from Ryan Reynolds' character. The real one is expected to drop within the next three weeks.
One of the first big trailers to be shown, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman both appeared as Victorian versions of their characters in this fantastic clip. Fans were also shown a video message by Moriarty star Andrew Scott that hinted at a possible return to the character.
Game of Thrones - Audition reel
While the GoT panel didn’t reveal very much about the upcoming series, they did show this hilarious footage of the cast auditioning for their roles including a very posh Rose Leslie saying “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
Fear the Walking Dead
In one of the more scary trailers shown, we are taken back to a time before anyone knew what a “walker” was. Fear the Walking Dead is a spin-off series from The Walking Dead which has already been confirmed to have at least two seasons.
One of the more obscure trailers, Con Man is a crowdfunded web series about, well, Comic Cons. It is loosely based on the real-life events after the TV series Firefly was cancelled and how the actors dealt with being flocked by fans.
Many fans were left disappointed with the Heroes series after the first season so there’s a lot of expectations riding on reboot Heroes Reborn to pull things back together. From this trailer, featuring the fantastic Masi Oka, things could be on the up.Reuse content
