This weekend at SDCC, the first trailer for Suicide Squad was screened for attendees at the movie’s panel. Naturally, it leaked faster than a baby’s discount diaper. There has since been speculation that this leak, along with the leaked Deadpool trailer, will have studios rethinking whether or not to show exclusive footage at future cons. In the meantime, however, Warner Bros has decided to release the leaked trailer officially. And I, for one, appreciate it.

While I am excited about this first glimpse of the film and the characters, if I’m being completely honest I have to say the movie looks good, but not absolutely amazing. I am choosing to continue holding onto my excitement because of my love for Harley Quinn. And I am keeping in mind that shooting is not even completed for this film, so what we are seeing is by no means a true representation of the end result. Take a look at the trailer yourself and take to the comments to let me know what you think. Do you believe Suicide Squad will be awesome or fall flat? And what do you think of exclusive footage leaks from cons? Should the studios expect it? Or should geeks keep their cameras off? Sound off!

COMIC CON GOODNESS: Leaked ‘Deadpool’ Trailer is Everything We’ve Been Hoping For

By T. Mack

We were already hella excited that Ryan Reynold’s is Deadpool. And in our hearts, we are still thanking whoever it was that leaked the test footage last year that eventually got us the upcoming Deadpool movie. We have seen pictures of Reynolds as the anti-hero, but we have still been awaiting our first glimpse of video footage. This weekend, the lucky bastards who attended the Deadpool panel at SDCC were given the chance to watch the very first trailer for the film… twice.

Of course, one of them leaked it. Because that’s what we geeks do. We share the love! Check out the fuzzy-but-still-super-awesome leaked trailer below. Then tell us in the comments if you’ll be heading to theaters in February to check out this movie about the hilarious “Merc with the Mouth.”

This weekend at SDCC, Whedon announced that he will return to his roots and release a 6-part comic book series about a “female Victorian Batman.” The comic, titled Twist, is still in development and has no set release date. However, Whedon did share the artwork above to tease the series.

COMIC CON GOODNESS: ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Trailer

By T. Mack

The CW panel at SDCC isn’t until tonight. And during it, there will no doubt be more goodness and news to come at us. However, the network didn’t wait to give their awesome new trailer exclusively to the attenders of the con. Yesterday, they released another trailer for the Arrow and The Flash spin-off, Legends of Tomorrow. (While the video didn’t debut at the con, I’m still counting it as Comic Con Goodness because we all know it was specifically timed to coincide with the events this weekend)

The series begins airing mid-season and will likely offer lots and lots of cross-overs with its predecessors. Yay! The new video, called Hero Evolution, is awesome! Check it out below then take to the comments to tell us whether or not you will be watching this new show when it comes to television in 2016.

COMIC CON GOODNESS: New ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Trailer

By T. Mack

I must confess, when the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman hit the net months ago, I was unimpressed. Today, SDCC brings us a new, fuller trailer with more details and a better idea of what pits the two superheroes against each other. I am now less unimpressed. While I’m still not convinced about Batfleck, I’m more hopeful about this movie being half-decent. Also, it was nice to finally see Wonder Woman, if only for a split second. Check out the trailer and take to the comments. What do you think of Batfleck and the chances of the new film being awesome? Let us know.

The 2020 Green Lantern movie has been a hot topic lately . Rumors have abounded about possible casting choices and the likelihood that the film will contain more than one iteration of the main Green Lantern character.
