Justice League Comic-Con Trailer Breakdown

After the damage control set visits Warner Bros. offered some of Batman v. Superman‘s toughest critics, we expected to at least see one of the clips described in said visits at Comic-Con. What we didn’t expect was a full trailer.

Below we have our trailer stills and breakdown.

San Diego Comic-Con 2015: What We Can’t Wait For


Somewhere, a man feverishly polishes his custom made “chrome trooper” helmet. In New Jersey, Kevin Smith finishes ironing another one of his custom oversized hockey jersey’s. And in southern California, the San Diego Convention Center custodial staff prepare for the wretched hive of stink and villainy that is the men’s bathroom during the biggest pop culture celebration of the year. Yes, if you didn’t realize it by now, it’s Comic-Con week.

While we here at The Screen Watcher Guild won’t be attending this time around, we’ll be eating up any info or grainy bootleg Hall H video we can get our greasy palms on. If you are going, lucky you!

In all honesty, Comic-Con is a ton of fun, but you have to be willing to wait and willing to sacrifice. That’s especially true at the Con’s legendary Hall H, where this year they’ll be handing out wristbands to guarantee people a chance to see some of the Con’s biggest panels, a much needed change. Still, if you want to get into Hall H, be prepared to line up the night before to get choice seats.

If getting into Hall H proves too stressful, there’s still a TON of stuff to explore on the show floor plus plenty of smaller and more intimate panels to sit in on. Let’s take a look at some of the most high profile panels we’re looking forward too, plus some smaller panels to peep if Hall H just a’int your thing. (more…)
