SDCC 2018: Watch Every Movie & TV Trailer

San Diego Comic-Con is now well underway, with the annual four-day celebration of all things geek and nerd culture running from 19-22 July.

Although the event’s origins go back to comic books themselves, these days the biggest draws come in the form of panels for major movies and TV shows, with the eyes of fandoms everywhere watching closely for new details and reveals.

At the centre of all this, of course, are the trailers. Comic-Con is matched perhaps only by the Super Bowl in terms of the sheer amount of teasers, sneak peaks, and full trailers we see debut and the amount of hype generated. The likes of Marvel Studios and Game of Thrones might not be in attendance this year, but with a mammoth Warner Bros panel, including a bunch of DC properties, Lucasfilm animation, Doctor Who, and many, many more, there’s still plenty to feast your eyes on and get excited about.

We’ve already had some big surprises, tantalising teases, and thrilling first looks, which are rounded up here for anyone not lucky enough to be in Hall H.

25. Nightflyers

 

Syfy’s new series is an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novella, set in 2093 and centred around the crew of a Nightflyer vessel.

 24. Disenchantment

 

 The first new series from Matt Groening since he made Futurama, which is quite remarkable.

Disenchantment follows the alcoholic Princess Bean, in what looks very Simpsons in terms of animation, but more adult in tone and plot.

 23. Titans

 

 The first look at the live-action version of the popular Teen Titans animated series, which will debut on streaming service DC Universe. The tone here is dark, gritty, and just in case that wasn’t made clear enough by the rest of the trailer, Robin says “F**k Batman”.

 22. Mayans MC

 

 Four years after the end of Sons of Anarchy, it’s spin-off is a go at FX. Once again created by Kurt Sutter (alongside Elgin James), this will focus on the rival Mayans Motorcycle Club, set two-and-a-half years after the end of SoA.

 21. Better Call Saul Season 4

 

 The fourth season of the Breaking Bad spin-off is coming later in the year than usual, but it promises to be worth the wait. Better Call Saul is one of the best dramas on TV, and while Vince Gilligan confirmed at Comic-Con that we won’t see Walt or Jesse this year, Season 4 should continue taking Jimmy McGill much, much closer to becoming Saul Goodman.

 20. Star Wars: The Clone Wars

 

 Perhaps the biggest surprise to come out of Comic-Con so far, Disney are bringing back The Clone Wars five years after they ended it. Season 7, once again overseen by Dave Filoni, will give a proper end to the show, with a dozen new episodes to finish the story. Rex, Anakin, and Obi-Wan are back, and there are a couple of other major returns as well.

 19. Iron Fist Season 2

 

 The much-maligned Iron Fist is coming back for Season 2 sooner than anyone expected, with the Comic-Con trailer used to announced its premiere date: Septembet 7.

With Daredevil out of action, it’s up to Danny Rand to lead the fight for New York, in what’s being billed as a ‘war’. The character has improved through The Defenders and Luke Cage, so here’s hoping this run is better than Season 1, although the brief teaser isn’t giving too much away.

 18. Doctor Who Season 11

 

 After the character’s debut at the end of the Christmas Special, we’ve been given a new, better look at what we can expect from Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor.

The trailer teases her initial struggles to adjust, along with her making friends and going on adventures to new worlds and new times. As the Doctor says, “This is gonna be fun.”

 17. Star Trek Discovery Season 2

 

 After some behind-the-scenes changes, there are changes in front of the camera for Discovery Season 2, with a new captain coming in to take command of the ship.

The trailer promises plenty of action and exploration, and also a plot-line revolving heavily around a certain Mr Spock.

 16. The Orville Season 2

 

 Seth MacFarlane’s Star Trek-inspired series drew plenty of praise for its first season, with favourable comparisons over Discovery, and Season 2’s trailer promises more of the same space comedy.

 15. The Man In The High Castle Season 3

 

 It’s been a LONG time since The Man in the High Castle Season 2 hit Amazon, but it’s finally time for Season 3 to come around. And for this one, things are getting even wilder, with the discovery of parallel dimensions.

 14. The Gifted Season 2

 

 After the first season introduced us to this new X-Men story, Season 2 is ramping things up and promising the start of The Mutant Age, which will involve a major strike from the villainous Hellfire Club.

 13. Fear The Walking Dead Season 4B

 

 The Walking Dead spin-off gets a trailer hyping the return of its fourth season, which has already brought new arrivals (Lennie James’ Morgan) and some major shocks.

Everything seems quiet at first but then, in true TWD fashion, it all starts going to hell.

 12. The Walking Dead Season 9

 

 As is now traditional, The Walking Dead brought a huge trailer to SDCC, clocking in at around the six-minute mark and featuring as many endings as Return of the King.

The bulk of it focuses on the time jump and the attempts to make the new world work, with plenty of the soon-to-be-departing Rick, before a few teases of new characters, most notably major comic villains the Whisperers. Most of all, it actually looks… good?!

 11. Black Lightning Season 2

 

 After a solid debut season, Black Lightning is back – something much of the Season 2 trailer focuses on.

With the hero more out in the open, there’ll be new threats for him to deal with, along with the burgeoning powers of his children and the family drama that comes with it.

 10. Arrow Season 7

 

 Arrow Season 7 finds Oliver Queen behind bars, where he not only has to contend with serving a prison sentence, but coming face to face with a number of criminals he sent there himself.

Outside, Star City is under attack from the return of the Longbow Hunters.

 9. Supergirl Season 4

 

 With some big changes on the horizon after the events of Season 3, the trailer for Supergirl’s fourth season promises an epic battle ahead for Kara and her homeworld.

 8. Legends Of Tomorrow Season 4

 

 Against all odds, Legends has become arguably the best Arrowverse series, and Season 4 looks set to continue that form.

With more of Constantine onboard there’s a bigger demonic presence in the trailer, some magical creatures (a unicorn!?), and new times to explore.

 7. The Flash Season 5

 

 The Season 5 trailer, as you might expect, is very heavy on the big reveal from last year: the presence of Barry and Iris’ future daughter in the present day timeline.

With the character stuck in the past, and the potential to “Marty McFly herself out of existence”, it seems like time travel is going to be at the heart of the coming year.

 6. Deadly Class

 

 A new comic book series, which tells of a group of students enrolled in King’s Dominion Atelier of the Deadly Arts, where they train to become assassins.

It stars Benedict Wong and is being produced by the Russo brothers, so its comic credentials are evident, and the trailer certainly shows that off.

 5. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

 

 Our best look yet at Fantastic Beasts 2, which sees Dumbledore recruit Newt Scamander to fight against Gellert Grindelwald. The new trailer emphasises the growing darkness, and brings plenty of fan service, including boggarts, the Mirror of Erised, and Nicolas Flamel.

 4. Shazam!

 

 Although it wasn’t initially expected to make its way online, the first teaser for Shazam! is a welcome surprise, and a stark change from previous DC movies.

Focusing on the origin of Billy Batson, who can transform into the superhero Shazam by saying the magic word, the trailer plays out more like a comedy than it does your typical comic book movie, and that’s definitely a good thing.

 3. Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

 

 A sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, and the final stop before 2020’s Godzilla v Kong, the trailer for King of the Monsters gives us a great look at its titular characters.

Co-written and directed by Michael Dougherty, it’ll see Godzilla battling against a number of his most famous foes, including Rodan and King Godorah, in a fight that challenges humanity’s very existence.

 2. Glass

 

 M. Night Shyamalan, after his return to form last year, is back with Glass – which brings together the characters and narratives from two of his most acclaimed movies, Unbreakable and Split.

Featuring David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), it promises a very different kind of superhero movie.

 1. Aquaman

 

 The big one on Warner Bros – and indeed the whole of Comic-Con’s slate – is the first look at James Wan’s Aquaman, the only live-action DC movie we’re getting this year.

Showing us the origins of Arthur Curry and his subsequent battle against Orm for the rule of Atlantis, the trailer does a great job of showing a sense of fun, along with some interesting underwater battle sequences and best of all the world of Atlantis itself.
