Warner Bros. and DC took to the stage in Hall H to give us a new trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman film. As you'd expect, it was brimming with all sorts of details. Join us as we give you the full breakdown.
Did you see anything that we didn't notice in the new trailer? Let us know in the comments below. For all the latest news and trailers from the panel, be sure to check our Warner Bros. and DC Comic-Con News roundup.
No Boys Allowed
"You're a man," Wonder Woman says. While this statement confuses the naive Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), it alludes to the one major rule of Wonder Woman's secret Amazon island home of Themyscira: men are forbidden.
Steve Trevor is a classic character from the comics, serving as a crucial part to Wonder Woman's comic book origin story. He was an American World War II intelligence officer who washed up on the shores of Themyscira after he crashed his plane. In the trailer, he can be seen wearing a World War I-era pilot's outfit, which is indicative of the film's new setting and time period for Wonder Woman's origin story.
Throne of Themyscira
Above is a shot of what could be the throne of Queen Hippolyta--the mother of Wonder Woman.
Queen Hippolyta (played by Connie Nielsen) is seen telling her daughter that she's her "greatest love." Could this be a brief moment from the scene where she's letting Wonder Woman leave Themyscira? It could potentially explain the somber tone of her dialogue.
As we expected, Wonder Woman leaves Themyscira with Trevor. She can be seen dressed in civilian clothing walking alongside him. But what inspired Wonder Woman to leave her home? We're thinking it might have to do with the reason why Trevor ended up on Themyscira in the first place.
Never Leave Home Without It
While Wonder Woman walks across the dance floor of a fancy party in a blue dress, she’s seen about to grab from her back the Sword of Athena--her primary weapon of choice in battle. A high-ranking officer is seen staring at her in the shot that precedes it; could Wonder Woman be drawing her sword to assassinate him?
A mysterious woman with a prosthetic jaw also makes an appearance at the party. While it's unclear what her identity is, we do at least know that this is the character that the famous Spanish actress Elena Anaya is set to play.
Wonder Woman can be seen riding on horseback after the party attended. You can tell since she discards the blue dress she was wearing in the shots that follow. Did something occur at the party that forced her leave?
It appears that the film's adaptation of Wonder Woman's origin story closely aligns itself with the new versions told in more recent comics. According to Wonder Woman's conversation with Trevor, she was brought to life by Zeus and raised by her mother Hippolyta. This more resembles her origin story depicting Zeus as her father/creator, rather than the classic Golden Age origin story where she came to life after being sculpted from clay by her mother.
While Wonder Woman and Trevor are at a bar/restaurant, they're approached by an unexpected assailant attempting to fire a gun at them. But before any damage could be done, Wonder Woman jumps in for the rescue and overpowers the assailant. Who is this man and why did he want to kill Trevor and Wonder Woman?
Several shots reveal that soldiers eventually invade Themyscira, which results in a conflict between them and the Amazons. But this leaves us asking two questions: how did they discover the island, and who could have revealed its location?
General Antiope (Robin Wright) can be seen on horseback leading the Amazon charge against the invaders. Subsequent shots show her quickly and skillfully dispatching a couple soldiers attempting to kill her. Antiope is the sister of Queen Hippolyta and aunt of Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman seems to be wielding a different shield from the one she used in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This new shield is a darker color and has a sun-like insignia in the center of it.
Wonder Woman is fighting against a multitude of soldiers across numerous shots in the trailer. However, this all begs the question: what sparked Wonder Woman to become involved in this conflict in the first place? It's a well-known fact in the comics that Amazons refuse to engage in the wars of men. We're thinking she might be fighting to keep soldiers from reaching Themyscira.
Wonder Woman's iconic Lasso of Truth makes an appearance. We only saw a brief glimpse of it during the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it's refreshing to see it in action again here. Hopefully, this film will finally answer the question of whether or not this version of the weapon forces people to tell the truth.
Assaulting German Planes
Trevor can be seen walking through an airfield filled with German planes. He eventually engages in a conflict against the soldiers there, and hijacks one of their planes to fight them off. But why is Trevor attacking German soldiers? Are they the main antagonists in the film’s central conflict, or are they simply only one part of the forces that threaten Wonder Woman?

The news was revealed during the show's presentation in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con today.

Participants of the ride will join Rocket in an "attempt to break his fellow Guardians out of captivity."

The Comic-Con news continues to roll out, and at its panel Marvel has just revealed a big piece of information about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Kurt Russell is playing Ego the Living Planet.
At the panel, Marvel gave a lengthy presentation about the upcoming follow-up to Guardians of the Galaxy, and the company revealed, among other things, that Russell will be assuming the role of Ego. Unfortunately, the footage that Marvel showed off has yet to be released to the public, but we do know a little about what Russell's character will be like in the film.
If you're familiar with the Marvel universe, you'll know that Ego the Living Planet is what his name suggests--a living planet. But he can also create and assume control of humanoid vessels, which is what he's done in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
In addition to this, Ego the Living Planet is also somehow the father of the film's main character, Star-Lord (AKA Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt). It's not yet clear how that works.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 launches on May 5, 2017. You can check out all the Marvel news from Comic-Con here, and the convention's biggest news here. Keep an eye on our Comic-Con hub for more news today and tomorrow.
The upcoming superhero film Captain Marvel will star Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson in the role of the main character. Larson has long been the subject of speculation concerning the role, and the news was announced during a Marvel presentation in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con today. Larson herself appeared on stage at the end of the reveal, much to the delight of fans.
Back in June it was reported Marvel’s first choice for the Captain Marvel film was Larson, with executives allegedly in early talks with the actress. Larson won the Best Actress award at this year's Oscars for her performance in the drama Room. She is also known for supporting roles in Scott Pilgrim vs The World and 21 Jump Street, and will next be seen in the Martin Scorsese-produced action movie Free Fire.
Captain Marvel was originally scheduled for a July 2018 release, but was moved back to make way for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man and the Wasp. It is now scheduled to be released at cinemas in March 2019, and will be Marvel’s first female superhero-led movie. The studio also revealed the film's logo during the presentation.
Captain Marvel has been the name of various heroes over the years. The current incarnation, and the one expected to feature in the film, is the alter ego of the character Carol Danvers. Danvers previously used the name of Ms Marvel and first appeared in her own comic book in 1977, before taking the identity of Captain Marvel in 2012.

This year's Comic-Con has been full of news and reveals, and today's no exception. Marvel Studios has just released a new trailer for Dr. Strange, the upcoming superhero movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch. And it looks pretty awesome.
The video depicts the first time that Stephen Strange, the neurosurgeon, meets The Ancient One, the being that mentors him in the mystic arts and sets the stage for him to become the superhero. The trailer is action-packed and full of wacky cinematography that shows off the ways that the mystic arts let wielders warp time and space. You can also check out some screens from the trailer if you can't watch it here:
The trailer seems like it's focusing on the ways in which Dr. Strange attempts to shape reality to fit his own needs, with the hero being warned not to succumb to the temptations of the power. The video also emphasizes how Dr. Strange doesn't have an innate ability to use these skills: he must practice and hone them.
Along with its TV show Legion that got its first trailer today, Marvel seems to be leaning more heavily into the weirder parts of its comic universe. Dr. Strange launches on November 4.
More of the cast of upcoming Marvel film Black Panther has been revealed. Director Ryan Coogler introduced the cast during a presentation in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.
It was already known that actor Chadwick Boseman will portray the protagonist, Black Panther. He will be joined by Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Michael B. Jordan (not the basketball player) as Erik Killmonger, and Danai Gurira as Okoye. This will be the fourth time Michael B. Jordan would have worked with director Ryan Coogler. The two teamed up for 2015’s Creed, which Jordan starred in.
The presentation also revealed a slick new logo for the upcoming movie.
The character Black Panther made his debut in the Marvel cinematic universe in Captain America: Civil War. Boseman’s performance was described as “remarkable” by the film’s directors.
Need a crash course on who Black Panther is? We’ve got you covered right here. If you’d like to find out more about Black Panther, we’ve listed eight things we learned about the character from Captain America: Civil War. Black Panther will be released in cinemas in 2018.
Pokemon Go is a cultural sensation, and it had a better first week in terms of downloads on iOS devices than any other iOS app in history. It seemed like it would never slow down--but according to new data from survey company SurveyMonkey, the app might have finally reached its peak number of users, at least in the US.
SurveyMonkey published a bunch of data from surveys it had conducted, and it appears that downloads of the app have tapered off and plateaued. While its first week saw a huge spike in downloads, the influx of new users has not surprisingly slowed since then. To reach this conclusion, the company looked at three different data sets: daily active users, downloads, and Google search frequency.
As you can see from the graph of active users that SurveyMonkey compiled, people are beginning to stop using the app. From a peak of over 25 million active users, there are now just over 20 million. To be clear, this is still an absurd number of users, and the app is downloaded on an incredible number of iPhone and Android devices. But the data suggests that Pokemon Go, even though it is a mobile juggernaut, still is affected by normal app usage trends.
Of course, the Google search stats reinforce just how massive the Pokemon Go phenomenon is. While they also corroborate the plateau, a comparison between "Pokemon Go" and other popular terms like "Trump," "Taylor Swift," and "Battlefield" shows just how pervasive the game is in popular culture right now.
Also, take this decline with a grain of salt, because it only counts US users. With Pokemon Go having just launched in Japan, it's unlikely that it'll truly lose its popularity any time soon.
The mobile app has spawned a wide variety of bizarre stories around the world, which you can read about here.

Adult Swim has a released a new clip for the upcoming third season of its show Rick and Morty. The clip was first shown during the Rick and Morty panel at San Diego Comic-Con today. In it, Rick builds a new body which aids him in a fight against a pack of rats. Things get pretty gory and over-the-top in classic Rick and Morty fashion; watch the clip in the embed below.
Adult Swim Games is also showcasing the Rick and Morty VR game at Comic-Con. The game is titled Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality and is playable on the show floor. It currently does not have a release date, but will be coming to HTC Vive.
In January this year Adult Swim Games released Pocket Mortys, a Rick and Morty video game that plays like the classic Pokemon handheld games. Is is available for mobile devices. The game is based off the show, which features the titular characters travelling through different dimensions, often getting into trouble.

As promised earlier, Hideo Kojima revealed a new video during a talk held at San Diego Comic-Con. Unfortunately, it wasn't for his next game, Death Stranding. Instead it's a "logo movie for Kojima Productions," his new studio.
Nevertheless, it's still pretty cool. It shows the studio's mascot planting a flag on what looks like the moon, except underwater.
You can also check out some screenshots from the movie below.
"At first it looks like Ludens is underwater, his footprints are there," Kojima explained through a translator during his talk. "He looks like he's walking in the ocean or somewhere, the whole idea is to go somewhere he ever been to, then you have something big crossing in front of the character.
"You're led to believe it was the ocean, but it turns out it's a different planet. Then you have the flag, and the huge whale that has an effect that makes it hard to see if it's real or not. The whole idea is the thing that crossed Ludens tries to play with Ludens when he plants his flag. It gets really boring when you explain it all."
Kojima was asked whether the Luden character will be in Death Stranding.
"No, Ludens won't be in Death Stranding, but people can play with this character. Go ahead and put it in your fan art or whatever."
Also during the event, Kojima discussed establishing a new Kojima Productions, following his departure from Konami. Specifically, he talked about Ludens, the mascot of the studio.
"Kojima Productions is represented in Ludens. The concept is to use bleeding-edge technology and exploring the unknown. A scientist in the Netherlands proposed the concept that the more we play, the more we evolve. This is what I want to be, I want to put this concept into Homoludens.
"I created the concept and gave it to [Yoji] Shinkawa. The kind of equipment that allows you to go anywhere is a space suit... I wanted it to look somewhere in between samurai and knight.
The first trailer for Death Stranding was revealed at E3 2016. It showed The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus cradling a baby, and lots of beached whales. Although it was quite confusing, it is also stuffed with clues. According to Kojima, the trailer shown during E3 is "representative" of the final game.
A release date for Death Stranding has not yet been announced, but don't expect it soon. Recently, Kojima said, "Our game is still far from being released."

Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Justice League movie is not out until November next year, but at this year's San Diego Comic-Con we all were teased with the first official footage from the upcoming movie. And even from that brief glimpse, it looks to be an altogether different beast from the very dour Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There was color and humor, two things that were few and far between in BvS. But what else did this trailer tell us about Justice League?
The trailer begins with Bruce Wayne addressing what seems to be the inhabitants of a fishing village, asking about "a stranger who comes in from the sea." This stranger apparently delivers fish in the winter when the villagers are hungry, and always comes with the king tide.
Wayne, as you can see, is sporting a full beard. Has his search for members for the Justice League been taking a long time? A full beard tells us that he hasn't donned the Batsuit for quite a while…
While we've already seen Jason Momoa as Aquaman in this year's Batman v Superman, this is the first time we've seen him outside of the water. And he looks… pretty intense. "Talk," he barks at Wayne.
We see a group of ancient warriors in a forest, burying one of the Mother Boxes that have already been confirmed as being the big MacGuffins in Justice League. These warriors look like Earth-based Vikings, but they could also be a group of the Old Gods, who along with the Amazons and the Atlanteans were the key powers in ancient Earth (with the Old Gods helping/representing humans). If it is a group of Old Gods, then it's clear Mother Boxes have been on our planet for a very long time...
And here's that Mother Box. Mother Boxes are alien devices that can give its wielder unbelievable (if not quite clearly defined) power. Long story short--they're ultra-powerful and everybody wants one.
Here's our first look at Wonder Woman in this trailer, fully suited up in her battle dress. Bruce Wayne's solemn voiceover states that he's "looking for warriors".
Here's another look at Jason Momoa's hard-drinking, tattoo-wearing king of the sea. Clearly, Aquaman is the "could not give two f****" character in this movie. Also, his WWE wrestler Roman Reigns cosplay is totally on point.
Here's a great shot of Aquaman standing firm as huge waves break around him. This would normally be quite dangerous for a normal man, but Aquaman is totally cool with it.
And here's our first look at Ezra Miller playing Barry Allen (otherwise known as The Flash) in the trailer. They're portraying Allen as one of the younger members of this Justice League.
Actor Ray Fisher strides purposefully as Victor Stone, seen here before most of his body gets all mangled and he's transformed into Cyborg. Justice League and BvS director Zack Snyder has already confirmed that a Mother Box will have something to do with the creation of Cyborg…
Here we are inside the Flash's not-so-secret hideout, which has been infiltrated by Bruce Wayne. If you look closely, you'll see that Allen already has a Flash suit ready to go, and the monitors all around the room seem to be displaying results of tests (possibly to do with aerodynamics). There's also a strange sign in the background that says "Try Your Strength." What could that possibly mean?
This is one of our favorite scenes in the trailer, as it showcases something that's been rare in these recent slew of DC movies: a joke. Bruce Wayne simply says: "Barry Allen? Bruce Wayne." And Allen cheekily responds: "You say that like it explains why there's a total stranger sitting in the dark in my second favorite chair."
And there's more humor! Diana Prince (aka Wonder Woman) seems to be helping Wayne in his recruiting. She asks Wayne about Aquaman's chances of joining the Justice League, and then it cuts to a shot of Aquaman throwing Wayne up against a wall…
Prince: "More more or more less?"
Wayne: "Probably more less."
Prince: "He said no."
Wayne: "He said no."
Jokes in a DC movie, everyone!
And we're back to Flash's lab. After Allen's repeated denial that he's anyone "special", Wayne just ups and throws a batarang at Allen…
...which causes Allen to speed up and dodge it. As you can see, when the Flash is moving at super speed (and using the Speed Force), electricity bolts seem to emerge around him. Allen simply picks the batarang out of the air.
Wayne starts his little speech to try and recruit the Flash, but Allen cuts him before he can finish and states that he's in. "I need… friends," he says. Allen then looks at the batarang. "Can I keep this?" All this humor almost feels like a direct reaction to claims that BvS was far too dour…
After seeing so many other Justice League members, this is actually our first look at Batman. His suit doesn't seem to be much different to the one he was sporting in BvS. Also, he landed without making the now cliched superhero three-point landing. Full points to Justice League!
Here's our first look at the transformed Victor Stone, who is now Cyborg. His costume here looks quite angular.
Flash in full costume, and yep, he's a real… spark *puts on sunglasses*
And here's another shot of Jason Momoa topless as Aquaman. This movie does need to hit all four quadrants, you know.
A group shot of four members of the Justice League. Conspicuously absent: Superman.
Cyborg addresses Batman directly. "I didn't think you were real."
Batman growls back: "I'm real when it's useful."
And for the final shot of the trailer, we get confirmation that the Aquaman we'll see in Justice League is Arthur Curry, who, depending on which timeline you're looking at, could be full Atlantean or the son born out of a human/Atlantean hook-up. Either way, he's blond in the comics, and Jason Momoa is… not.
It's been a pretty busy San Diego Comic-Con this year, and a lot of new information has been announced for films, games, and TV shows. Marvel is getting in on the action, as well, and today the company released the first trailer for its upcoming TV show, Legion.
Legion is a new drama that follows the Marvel superhero Legion--also known as David Haller, a troubled man who was diagnosed with schizophrenia. As you see in the trailer, however, it appears that the voices he hears and visions he sees might not be figments of his mind, but glimpses of real events. Check out the trailer in the embed above.
The trailer focuses heavily on the psychological aspect of Legion's persona, playing up his struggle with his mental disorder. The trailer also suggests that the show might play with the audience's expectations of chronology and continuity. Perhaps, since David Haller can't perceive the world normally, it'll subvert the viewers' own perceptions.
The TV show is a joint production of Marvel and FX. Its creator is Noah Hawley, the creator of Fargo. You can read a bit more about what you can expect from the show here. The first episode will air sometime in early 2017. It stars Dan Stevens as Legion, as well as Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Katie Aselton, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Bill Irwin, and Aubrey Plaza.
As a superhero, Legion's been around in the Marvel universe for a fairly long time. He's the son of Professor Xavier, the creator of the X-Men. He first appeared in a comic in 1985 and later became a recurring character in the X-Men series. However, Marvel has confirmed that the TV show will not take place in the timeline of the recent X-Men films.
Check back on GameSpot's Comic-Con hub for more news about Marvel properties coming out of the convention.
Thor: Ragnarok will feature the God of Thunder and the gamma-charged goliath going on what has previously been described as a buddy movie-like adventure. Little else is known about the movie, but at Comic-Con Marvel revealed that Hulk will be equipped with his iconic gladiator outfit at some point.
The costume was featured in a video posted by Ryan Penagos, executive editor of Marvel Digital Media. Take a look below to see the rather large helmet, shoulder guard, and hammer.July 23, 2016
Some close-up images showing the detailing in the armor have also been posted on Twitter by Penagos.July 23, 2016
The reveal has reinforced speculation that Thor: Ragnarok will take some inspiration from Planet Hulk, a comic book series in which Hulk battled monsters on an alien planet. Quite how this narrative will be worked into the new Thor movie remains to be seen.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as Hulk. This will be the first time that Ruffalo has appeared in any Marvel film except for the two Avengers movies. The cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban, and Jeff Goldblum. Blanchett is know to be playing a villainous character, while Goldblum will portray immortal games-playing Grandmaster.
The previous Thor movie, Thor: The Dark World, was released in November 2013. It has earned more than $644 million worldwide, making it the sixth most successful of Marvel's films to date. Thor: Ragnarok is due to be released on November 3, 2017.
Hideo Kojima is set to appear at Comic-Con later today to discuss his next game, Death Stranding, among other things. The event will be hosted by Geoff Keighley and, if recent Twitter updates are any indication, there is likely to be a new trailer.
The official English account for Kojima confirmed the event will take place at 3 PM PT and will be streamed. The figures based on Kojima Productions mascot Ludens will likely be one topic of discussion, as production company 1000Toys is mentioned in the hashtags.
The tweet says "New Trailer?!," which has led to speculation that we could see more of Death Stranding today. However, it could also be that the trailer is instead for a figure or some other tie-in product. Take a look at his tweet below.July 23, 2016
Kojima previously showed off Death Stranding at E3 2016. Although the debut trailer is quite confusing, it is stuffed with clues and, according to Kojima, "representative" of the final game. The Metal Gear creator also previously said his new PlayStation 4 and PC game will be the best he's ever made. You can read this post to find out more about what we know so far about Death Stranding.
As mentioned previously, Kojima's talk will be streamed at 3 PM PT and you'll be able to watch it here on GameSpot. We're also providing breaking new on everything happening at Comic-Con, so check back regularly for the latest info on video games, comic books, movies, and TV shows.
A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Suicide Squad, the upcoming movie that places some of DC Comics' most notorious villains on a team together, has been released. The video, which comes by way of Entertainment Tonight, features the actors and actresses playing Deadshot, Joker, Enchantress, Amanda Waller, and Harley Quinn talking about their characters.
"There's a part of him that Deadshot is thinking, 'Maybe I might have made a wrong turn or two,' in his life," says Will Smith, who is portraying crackshot sniper Deadshot. Cara Delevigne, who is the powerful and mysterious Enchantress, celebrates the prominence of power female characters in the movie.
"I don't really remember seeing a movie where the women have got such important roles, they are always the sidekick or love interest. I remember reading [Suicide Squad's script" and thinking, 'Oh my god the girls have the best lines,'"she says.
Watch the video below to also see Viola Davis, Jared Leto, and Margot Robbie talk about their characters.
Last year, Will Smith revealed that despite working with Leto for months, he had never spoken to the actor out-of-character. "I've never actually met Jared Leto," Smith said in an interview. "We worked together for six months and we've never exchanged a word outside of 'Action!' and 'Cut!' I literally have not met him yet. So, the first time I see him will be 'Hey, Jared. What's up?' He was all in on the Joker."
Suicide Squad is directed by David Ayer, who wrote the Oscar-winning Training Day and directed Fury and End of Watch. The movie also stars Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, and Jay Hernandez, and Ben Affleck will make a cameo appearance as Batman.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 5. According to a recent report, the film could pull in as much as $140 in the US for its opening, which would set a new August record. It also has potential to be the biggest opening for a Will Smith movie. Smith's current best-performer is 2007's I Am Legend, which made $77.2 million in the US for its debut weekend.
