If there’s one thing you can reliably expect from Comic-Con each year, it’s lines. Lots and lots of lines, so many lines, so many people taking to social media to complain about how many lines there are.
But in addition to the lines, there is one other staple at every Comic-Con: trailers. And the studios definitely brought the thunder this year.
Below is our roundup of this year’s big Comic-Con trailers, roughly in order of how much we liked them, along with some links to our coverage of the panels that came with them.
1. Thor: Ragnarok
If Marvel Studios had seen fit to release the new sizzle reels for Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War online, this might’ve been a toughie. In their absence, though, the new Thor: Ragnarok trailer takes number one with flying colors. Literally flying colors.
Bonus: Our recap of that epic Black Panther footage; all the latest details on Captain Marvel and Ant-Man and the Wasp; the new Avengers: Infinity War poster; and our love letter to Teen Groot in Avengers: Infinity War.
2. Justice League
Looks like Warner Bros. finally got the memo that fans really, really love Wonder Woman, because she’s front and center in this trailer.
Don’t Miss: The new Alex Ross-inspired Justice League poster; Batman’s new Batmobile; our speculation on Superman in Justice League; and the cast’s responses on which Suicide Squad characters they’d like to fight.
Bonus: Our recap of the first Aquaman footage; Ben Affleck’s response to those worrying Bat-rumors; Gal Gadot’s heroic Hall H welcome; the official Wonder Woman II announcement; a rundown of what else is on the upcoming DCEU slate; and our thoughts on what’s not on the upcoming DCEU slate. (This was a very busy panel.)
3. Kingsman: The Secret Service
As an American, I’m kind of okay with Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry, and Jeff Bridges representing all that is stereotypically wonderful about our people (and Julianne Moore hamming it up as a hamburger-serving villain).
4. Blade Runner 2049
I keep expecting Rick Deckard to say “It’s true. All of it” when Ryan Gosling shows up. Just me? (Note: Technically, this trailer debuted a few days before Comic-Con, but we’re giving it to them anyway because they made a big showing in Hall H.)
Don’t Miss: A recap of the Blade Runner timeline between 2019 and 2049.
5. Ready Player One
There’s something kind of weird about Steven Spielberg adapting a book that’s essentially a love letter to Steven Spielberg movies (and other ’80s nostalgia artifacts), but at least the trailer’s fun.
Don’t Miss: We went on an Easter egg hunt through Parzival’s Easter egg hunt.
6. The Lego Ninjago Movie
The Lego Movie was a winner and The Lego Batman Movie was, too, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Lego Ninjago Movie trailer is charming as hell. Watch all the way through for the utterly perfect reveal of this movie’s real villain.
7. Death Note (clip)
Death Note‘s been surrounded by controversy since the moment it was announced, and the tepid reaction to its new trailer and “surprise” screening at Comic-Con hasn’t done much to help matters. But hey, Willem Dafoe definitely has the voice of a death god.
8. Brigsby Bear
This twee little Sundance indie was an odd choice for a Hall H panel. Then again, who better than this crowd to understand what it’s like to have an all-consuming pop culture addiction?
The Bright trailer looks like End of Watch and Suicide Squad had a baby, and that baby grew up to be a magical race allegory. Yeah, I don’t know about this one, guys.
