In case you hadn’t noticed, San Diego Comic-Con just happened. And lots of stuff gets announced and lots of trailers happen and it’s basically just crammed with things. Here, I’ve tried to take the high points of the chaos and condense them into one huge post. There are lots of videos. You might want to go get a sandwich.
It’s because of Suicide Squad that the following Justice League trailer doesn’t make your eyeballs bleed. That’s just my theory. You are welcome to look at the evidence and form the same theory on your own.
There were two good things about BvS: Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. And this trailer will give you something I didn’t even know I needed to see. See if you can guess what it is.
Did you guess: Wonder Woman going over the top in World War I to tell the Germans how she really feels about trench warfare? If so, then you are right. If you don’t think that looks pretty badass, then you should probably check…someone may have slipped you decaf.
On Flash, in the DCTVU (I guess that’s what it’s called), Flashpoint is taking off as Flash rewrote time at the end of the second season. I’m guessing that makes what’s happening in the show the “new DCTVU” or…something? Have we reached TV Hypertime already?
In Marvel TV Land, of course, Netflix showed up with the Luke Cage trailer, which looks like a Sam’s Wholesale Club purchase of whoopass.
Then we have the show following Cage, his comic book partner Iron Fist. Very little to go on here, but it is a teaser. I eagerly await the next trailer which should have much asskicking. If you’ve seen the fight sequences in Daredevil thus far, then…well, this could be exciting. (Speaking of which, Daredevil was renewed for a third season.)
I almost didn’t include the Defenders trailer here, because you don’t need to know about it beyond that it happened. But Scott Glenn as Stick is worthy, even only in voiceover.
Also on Agents of SHIELD, Ghost Rider is coming. Thankfully, Nicolas Cage is not. Not quite sure how Ghost Rider will fit in with what’s happening in the wake of the time jump that ended Season 3, but I’ve dug the show so far. If Nick Blood and Adrianne Palicki, since their spinoff isn’t happening (again)…if they could come back, that would be great, though.
And elsewhere in this magical land, on FX, we have Legion, which I keep forgetting is happening. The trailer is here:
That’s it. Hope you enjoyed your sandwich.
