2015 San Diego Comic Con breakdown

MG_0071

At this year’s 2015 San Diego Comic Con, it was not about what you said but more about what you had to show. There were brand new trailers, follow-up trailers and generally just a lot of trailers.

All this with not a lot being said. At the Star Wars panel, Harrison Ford didn’t really say a lot at all and while the entire Suicide Squad flew in from Toronto just long enough to introduce the entire squad. And they were off.

But still, there was a lot to drool over and here are our favorite (available) trailers and videos from #SDCC. Over the coming weeks, more of these trailers will be made available and we will update this blog post. Also tune into Episode 23, our SDCC special to hear about all these and more!
