All The Awesome Announcements You Might’ve Missed At SDCC This Weekend

All The Awesome Announcements You Might’ve Missed At SDCC This Weekend

San Diego Comic-Con wrapped up this weekend and man did we get a ton of awesome teases. Here are just some of the biggest trailers and glimpses we got from this awesome con. Spoilers for a bunch of movies and TV shows follow.

The Justice League Trailer Starts Bringing Heroes Together

The first half of the Justice League two-parter lands in November 2017, but we’re already getting our first teaser. The above trailer shows Ben Affleck’s Batman rounding up the remaining heroes he found on the files he lifted from Lex Luthor’s computers in Batman v Superman. We get to see The Flash, Cyborg and Jason Mamoa’s intimidating Aquaman. You can also catch a promo shot of the whole team (including Superman) here.

The Wonder Woman Trailer Brings the Fight to World War I

While Wonder Woman stole the show in Batman v Superman, everyone was still curious how she would fit into the modern world in a solo movie. The answer (much like with Captain America’s first solo outing) is that she won’t. Her first movie will take place during World War I, and it looks amazing.

The Second Doctor Strange Trailer Pours Magic Directly Onto Your Eyeballs

Meanwhile, over in Marvel land, Doctor Strange got its second trailer. The first one came out shortly after shooting had wrapped and we only got a few effects. This trailer fixes that problem. We get a good look at Strange’s rune spells, more of the trippy kaleidoscope effect we saw in the first trailer and a city on blue fire. If you’re into Marvel’s magic side, this looks promising.

Luke Cage and Iron Fist Got Their First Trailers, Plus a Teaser for The Defenders

Marvel also dropped a few teasers for its various Netflix series. Luke Cage is up next, with the first season of the show dropping on September 30. Next year, we’ll see Iron Fist, and you can see the first trailer for his show below. All of this is leading up to the Avengers-style crossover series The Defenders in late 2017, featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist all in the same series. You can find a teaser for The Defenders (sans footage from the show) here.

Marvel Announces Captain Marvel Casting, Black Panther Villain and Star-Lord’s Dad

All The Awesome Announcements You Might’ve Missed At SDCC This Weekend

In a slew of announcements for an already overstuffed Hall H panel, Marvel dropped a metric ton of news. First off, Brie Larson is officially Captain Marvel and her movie will drop in March 2019. Next, we find out that Michael B. Jordan will be playing the villain Erik Killmonger (yes, really) in the Black Panther film coming out in February 2018. We also learned that Star-Lord’s dad is — you’ll never guess this — Ego, the Living Planet. Yeah. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is gonna get weird.

Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok Both Dropped Footage, But You Can’t Watch It

All The Awesome Announcements You Might’ve Missed At SDCC This Weekend

Inside the walls of Hall H, lucky Marvel fans got to see new footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. The footage won’t be released, but you can read descriptions of each over at Gizmodo. Spider-Man’s movie is getting the John Hughes treatment, echoing classic high school films like the Breakfast Club. Meanwhile, Thor feels jilted after being left out of Civil War, but he gets to make it up in his own film by adapting just the tiniest bit of Planet Hulk.

We Got Our First Look at the Ship From Star Trek: Discovery

NBC is creating a brand new Star Trek series to air next year, and now it finally has a title and a ship. The new series will be called Star Trek: Discovery and you can see a teaser of the new ship above. There’s not much else to go on at this point, but if you’re into Star Trek and you’ve already watched the new movie this weekend, this is a great tease for your next hyped project.

A New Fantastic Beasts Trailer Finally Starts Showing Some Beasts

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the latest in the Harry Potter series, this time focusing less on Harry Potter and more on America. The early trailers focused a bit on the beasts that give the film its name, but the latest trailer from SDCC finally gets to the good stuff.

The Renewed Mystery Science Theatre 3000 Series Is Coming to Netflix

All The Awesome Announcements You Might’ve Missed At SDCC This Weekend

After a stellar Kickstarter campaign, MST3K was destined to get renewed. Now, not only does it have a new cast (plus some of the old cast), it’s found a new home on Netflix. The series will return “in the not too distant future” featuring Patton Oswalt, Felicia Day and Jonah Ray, plus Mary Jo Pehl, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy reprising their live-action roles.

This is just some of the best news, but there was obviously a whole lot more going on at the con this weekend. Check out our sister site Gizmodo’s coverage for all the info you can handle from SDCC.
