With Suicide Squad only a few weeks away, Warner Bros. and DC Films knew they didn’t need to go big at Comic-Con International this year, only nudge us just a little bit more in the right direction. To that end, their big reveals weren’t new so much as improved: a new trailer cut to emphasize the film’s soundtrack and a new batch of publicity photos showing off the film’s key characters.
San Diego Comic-Con always offers a wealth of announcements for upcoming Marvel and DC movies and television shows, and this year might be the biggest one yet. With more comic book adaptations than ever, and studios diving deeper into the publishers' rosters of heroes and villains, there's a lot to keep up with, so we've rounded up all the major superhero casting announcements from this year's show.
Just when you thought you’d had your fill of superheroes at Comic-Con 2016, animated or otherwise, Vixen returns to unite The CW’s DC players once more. Our first look at Season 2 of the animated CW Seed drama brings both Barry Allen and Firestorm into the mix, but who’s the weathered new big bad?
Yes, where once Arrow Season 4 made us wait months for new footage, Season 5 is already here at Comic-Con 2016, with all-new friends. Oliver tries to assemble a new Team Arrow in the first trailer, as a new big bad looms over Star City, and guess who’s back from the grave to join every DC series at once?
The rumors have been flying for months, but now Captain Marvel herself will take to the skies.
Back in June, James Gunn teased that he and the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' gang would bring “something pretty cool” to Marvel’s San Diego Comic-Con panel. We didn’t get a new trailer, but we did get a logo and some details about a new clip.
Before San Diego Comic-Con kicked off Marvel gave us a sneak peek at the new poster for ‘Doctor Strange.’ But during the Marvel Studio’s panel in Hall H on Saturday, the cast revealed a brand new trailer for the movie.
The Flash couldn’t wait to speed out its first Season 3 footage, but the smash DC drama certainly slowed things down at Comic-Con 2016. In addition to some major additions and crossover tease, what major details did the superhero cast reveal from San Diego? Our full panel report!
San Diego Comic-Con saved the biggest news for last. Marvel’s panel is the last big film panel in Hall H this year, and we’re bound to get some huge news on everything from ‘Doctor Strange’ to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.’
To be honest, we were already sold on The LEGO Batman Movie based on the hilarious teaser alone, but after getting our first look at The Joker and Robin (and Harley Quinn!) earlier this week, we’ve been looking forward to watching a full trailer for the mini-Dark Knight’s animated adventure. And now that trailer has officially arrived, giving us a better sneak peek at The LEGO Movie spinoff starring Will Arnett’s delightfully narcissistic Batman.
