The Best Trailers from Hall H at Comic Con 2016

(This article was previously posted as an answer on Quora)

I was in Hall H every day of Comic-Con 2016, and I saw a lot of movie and TV trailers and exclusive advanced footage, including:

  • Snowden
  • Wonder Woman
  • Suicide Squad
  • Justice League
  • Lego Batman
  • King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
  • Kong: Skull Island
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Star Trek: Discovery
  • Doctor Strange
  • Thor: Ragnarok
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • Sherlock

Most of them are available online from various sources, including officially released trailers, and surreptitiously-recorded captures of exclusive content, which I do not condone, nor do I recommend you watch. Suffice to say, it was cool.

The best looking stuff we saw was from Wonder Woman:

and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is officially unavailable at the time of writing. A big surprise came at the end, with the revelation that Kurt Russell’s character Ego is Peter Quill’s father, along with a the (brief) appearance of Sylvester Stallone in an as-yet unnamed role.

Other notable peaks were the Fantastic Beasts trailer:

and advanced footage and trailer for Doctor Strange.

Some of the coolest scenes were from Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was a short 10 days into shooting, but offered a surprising amount of footage, and revealed that in this version of Spider-Man, Peter Parker is very much a high school kid, and also— briefly— revealed the villain to be (unsurprisingly) the Vulture.

One of the biggest surprises of the weekend was Kong: Skull Island:

which looks absolutely phenomenal, like some awesome cross between Platoon and Jurassic Park. And that cast…

Additionally, we saw a trailer for the marvelously fun-looking King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which puts Guy Ritchie’s personal spin in the traditional legend.

All together, I’d say it was an eventful Con.
