If you’ve been hoping for something good to look forward to from DC in theaters, they’ve delivered. The company revealed no less than five trailers at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday, including the much-anticipated Wonder Woman adaption starring Gal Gadot. Scroll down and be delighted at what will soon accompany your nearest theater!
Filling Lynda Carter’s boots is not a job for the meek, and one that many fans were skeptical Gadot could take on. This premiere SDCC trailer shows a dark, gritty take on the superheroine’s story and hints at her origin, which Gadot has said in previous interviews we’ll see in the full film when it comes out June 2017.
Director Zack Snyder hasn’t won fan hearts with his dour take on Superman in Man of Steel, which is why it came as quite a surprise to see how well fans reacted to the newly unveiled trailer for his vision of Justice League. Aquaman looks chill-inducingly perfect, and we get to see Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, and even Batman. This looks like it’s going to be a really fun action flick, and we can’t wait for it (but we’ll have to since it’s not coming out till 2017).
If loving villains is your thing, the final Suicide Squad trailer should prove a true delight. Shown in Hall H Saturday during the DC Comics panel, the footage is jam-packed with more fun than ever with lots of quips peppered throughout. Leto’s performance alone would be worth watching the film when it hits theaters on Aug. 5.
If your kids are a bit young for the darkness of some of DC’s offerings this summer (or if you just really love all things Lego), just hold off and take them to The Lego Batman Movie when it comes out next February. This is a goofy, lighthearted take on Batman, and it looks like its going to be really fun.
Kong: Skull Island
As a part of Legendary’s effort to create a monster-movie franchise, we have Kong: Skull Island, starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, and John Goodman. As an alternate take on King Kong’s origin story, it looks like it could be pretty absorbing to see on the big screen (especially in 3D!). It’s not due out until March 2017, so we have a while to wait, but it’ll be interesting to watch this one unfold.
