We’re quickly approaching the release of Suicide Squad and Warner Bros. is no longer being stingy with the footage. Not only have they released eight new clips from the film, they have released eight new clips that touch on characters, details, and plot points that have been specifically left out of the various teasers and trailers released so far. So yeah, please watch all of the clips below, if that is what you care to do (I did). But if you feel like you’ve seen enough and want to go in a little fresh and can happily wait another week and a half, feel free to opt out.

As you’re probably all aware, Comic-Con was last week, and we’re still poring over some of the details that went unnoticed while covering panel after panel at the convention. For some fans, who didn’t get into Hall H for some of the bigger movie presentations from Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. Pictures, the next best thing was getting into Ballroom 20 for a sneak peek at what’s coming on the next season of their favorite DC Comics television shows, and those fans didn’t go home disappointed.
This past weekend, Warner Bros. Television debuted new trailers for almost all of their DC Comics TV series. Gotham, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all received new trailers teasing their new season coming this fall. Sadly, Supergirl didn’t have any footage to show, but they teased the second season with a panel at Comic-Con that you can watch online. So without further adieu, see what’s coming with this batch of DC Comics TV show Comic-Con trailers. Read More »

In theory, the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe is connected, from the films to the Netflix and ABC shows. In theory, though, the big- and small-screen sides intersect only rarely, and that disconnect has only seemed to widen since corporate restructuring put Marvel’s series and Marvel’s movies under different leadership. But what about within the Marvel TV universe? Currently, Marvel’s small-screen properties are split between ABC and Netflix. Could Matt Murdock give S.H.I.E.L.D. an assist, or vice versa?
Don’t count on it, says Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg. The actor admits he’d love to see Iron Fist or Luke Cage drop by his show someday, but blames “corporate stuff” for keeping the ABC and Netflix sub-franchises separate. Read what he has to say about the possibility of a SHIELD Netflix Marvel crossover. Read More »
Arrow returned to San Diego Comic-Con for the fifth time in advance of its fifth season on The CW. We spoke to producer Wendy Mericle in a roundtable where she shared the show’s plan to return to its roots. After several seasons of year-long story arcs, Arrow plans to return to villains of the week and standalone episodes, culling from the history of DC comics.
“There will be more standalone episodes this season,” Mericle said. “We are looking to go deeper into the bench of villains from the DC universe. Again, go back to our roots, more season one.” Read More »
Go back and read the interviews with director Joss Whedon in the weeks leading up to the release of 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and witness a man who was very happy to be getting out of the superhero movie game. Go back a little further and read the various set visit reports and witness a man who was exhausted and beat to hell by the process of making a $200 million spectacle. With those images fresh in your brain, it’s easy to imagine why Whedon says he’ll never direct a superhero movie again, especially since he can make perfectly entertaining low-budget Shakespeare adaptations in his backyard.
Still, there is one character who Whedon says could possibly pull him back into the Marvel fold: Black Widow. He may be done with Avengers movies, but Scarlet Johansson‘s Natasha Romanoff could be the thing that drags him back into the comic book movie business. Theoretically. Because there are currently no plans to make this movie.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Ever since the Marvel Studios panel happened at Comic-Con this past Saturday, fans have been clamoring to find out when the footage that played for those lucky enough to be in Hall would be online. People who waited in the line the previous night and into the morning were treated to the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, a hilarious mockumentary and behind the scenes sizzle reel from Thor: Ragnarok, a new Doctor Strange trailer (which you can actually watch), and an entire scene and teaser trailer from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
So when can you see this footage? The short answer is that it won’t be online anytime soon, and some of it may never be online in the form that it was shown in Hall H. But director James Gunn wants to make sure you know why the footage is being held back, and he explained as much in a video on Facebook, where he also put up a long post explaining all of the secrets revealed in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con footage and panel. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
Marvel’s Doctor Strange finished shooting in April and has already released two trailers, which makes it all the weirder that we’re just now learning that Benjamin Bratt appears in the film. And how we learned about his casting is even stranger: his name was listed with the main actors in the small print of the recent Doctor Strange movie poster that was released during Comic-Con 2016. Getting your name in the credit block on the theatrical one sheet typically means you have a big role in the movie. So the question is, who does Benjamin Bratt play in Doctor Strange?

The Flash returned to Comic-Con for the third time in anticipation of its third season on The CW. We spoke with producers Todd and Aaron Helbing in a roundtable before their panel. The season premiere is called “Flashpoint,” based on the classic comic book alternate universe story. Like other classic comic book titles, like “Worlds Finest” on Supergirl and “The Brave and the Bold” on Arrow, The Flash will put a new twist on “Flashpoint.”
“It’s like any of those iconic moments in Flash,” Todd said. “You want to make sure you do right. But it’s also, the way we approach all these stories are we know what happened in the comics but we take that event and we sort of run it through the Flash television show filter so we can tell the same story with our spin. It was challenging but it wasn’t impossible.” Read More »
This past weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed a barrage of footage upon Comic-Con with their presentation in Hall H. Thankfully for fans at home, every single piece of footage they showed at the convention ended up online, from the Justice League sizzle reel to The LEGO Batman Movie trailer. But honestly, the best thing to come out of the panel was the first trailer for Wonder Woman. You’ve probably watched it plenty of times by now, but we wanted to do a little breakdown of the footage we see in the tease for the first solo adventure of the DC Comics superhero.
