Even though the fan presence for Transformers is high at San Diego Comic-Con, the Paramount Pictures film franchise mostly stayed away from the convention center itself when it comes to promoting its upcoming would-be blockbuster. But it sounds like the studio might have something to prove with their first Transformers spin-off focusing on Optimus Prime’s right-hand Autobot.
Bumblebee takes the titular yellow Autobot, who debuted in live-action in the first Transformers movie back in 2007, out on his own adventure. But this time, we flashback to the 1980s when he encountered a teenage girl named Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) in a small California beach town, and he was just a beat-up old Volkswagen beetle. The first trailer for Bumblebee gave us some flares of The Iron Giant and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, so did the Bumblebee Comic-Con panel in Hall H get us anymore excited? Find out below.

We’ve had three big screen versions of Spider-Man over the past couple decades, but we’ve never had a wallcrawler like the one we’ll see in this fall’s animated comic book movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
This time, it’s young Miles Morales (Shameik Moore of Dope) taking the mantle of Spider-Man, but he’s not the only one with spider-like super powers. There’s still an older Peter Parker bumming around (voiced by Jake Johnson), and there’s also Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld). Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is taking us deeper into the comic book world of Spider-Man than any movie has before, and the movie’s Hall H panel provided even more insight into what we can expect from this vibrant, stylish approach to Spidey and his universe.

But that’s not all! We now know that Nicolas Cage has joined the Into the Spider-Verse cast as well, playing yet another Spider-Man: Spider-Man Noir.

Last week brought the first teaser trailer for the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee. The film focuses on the vocally-challenged, signature yellow Autobot who has been a cornerstone of the entire franchise right alongside Optimus Prime. Now, Bumblebee finds himself on his own in what is something of an origin story for the character as he goes on an adventure that happens decades before the first installment of the Transformers movies.
A new Bumblebee featurette has arrived with a focus on director Travis Knight, the man who has done wonders with stop-motion animation at LAIKA. After directing Kubo and the Two Strings and having his hand in LAIKA’s other projects such as Coraline and ParaNorman, Knight hopes to bring some of that mesmerizing storytelling to the Transformers universe.

Before Bumblebee cruised around as a souped-up Chevrolet Camaro, the loyal Autobot hero took the form of a classic Volkswagen Beetle. And before he befriended Sam Witwicky, he was tight with a girl named Charlie Watson.
