San Diego Comic-Con is upon us, which, for those of us who can’t make it, means one thing: an onslaught of trailers for things to come. This year’s convention features expanded universe shows like tales of the living dead, Dragon House, and The Lord of the Rings: The Power of the Ring! There are studios with cool stuff like Warner Bros. with Shazam! Fury of the gods and Marvel with, you know, Marvel stuff! It contains the Keanu Reeves comic series BRZRKRthat Netflix is developing into a live-action movie, and hopefully an update on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Keep watching this post for any trailers that hit SDCC from July 21 through July 24.
Maybe one day John Wick can take a nice, relaxing vacation, but that day isn’t today. The new teaser of Wick jeans 4 is pretty much what you’d expect from the action-packed franchise about the former hitman: there’s guns, knives, nunchucks, shattered glass, and Keanu Reeves hitting a pole over and over again. “Have you thought about where this ends?” someone asks Reeves. Sure, we already know the answer… Wick jeans 5.
The Walking Dead the spinoff arrives on AMC and AMC+ on August 14. As American Horror StoriesTales of the Living Dead anthologizes the world we already know and love (?) from 11 seasons of TWD and 7 of Fear the living dead.

Stephen Colbert directed the LOTR panel after doing a live episode after the January 6 hearing of The late show. Only Tolkien could make Colbert mess up his sleep schedule like that. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is based on an appendix to the story we all know and love, explaining the circumstances surrounding the forging of the titular rings as well as how the half-elven, half-human city-state of Númenor fell into discord and eventually slipped into the ocean. Basically, it’s “the Capitol riots, but make them orcs.”
In what is already the stranger things favorite kids movie of 2023, D&D Live! stars Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page and Michelle Rodriguez as a cool group of miscreant heroes who must save the world (after screwing it up). There’s high fantasy, high comedy, and high jinks in this trailer. Plus, Chris Pine plays lute for a while, if that’s your thing.
Five years after the end of its series, MTV’s Teen Wolf is back with the first trailer for Teen Wolf: The Movie. Premiering on Paramount+, the film reunites much of the main cast (one character even comes back from the dead at the end of the clip) except for star Dylan O’Brien and Arden Cho.
If you like to quote “I will steal the Declaration of Independence”, Disney+ has the perfect teaser for you. In a trailer that reminds us to start over-analyzing the look of dollar bills again, National Treasure: Edge of History introduces Lisette Olivera as the new star of the series, replacing Nicolas Cage as an adventurer seeking to recover his family’s treasure. She’s joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones, who plays a badass billionaire and treasure hunter named Billie, and Justin Bartha, who reprises his role as nerd/computer expert Riley Poole.
Hey, what’s going on? He-Man and his friends reunite to fight Skeletor’s return while trying to stop Krass from turning completely to the dark side.
Do you like cute things? Do you like adorable superheroes? Do you like incredibly stacked casts including Alfre Woodard, Sasheer Zamata, Laurence Fishburne and Craig Robinson? Then you should probably check out this clip for Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur. It takes place before Moon Girl officially becomes Moon Girl and features the devil dinosaur. Even if you don’t want to watch it, you can still recommend it to your niece.
In Very Different Superhero News, The Coming Video Game Gotham Knights has just unveiled its character trailer for Batgirl, one of the main characters of the game. Gotham Knights takes place in a Gotham just after Batman’s death, which means Batgirl and her cohort (think Robin, Nightwing, and Red Good) have a big boost in kicking responsibilities.
