Comic-Con 2015: First SUICIDE SQUAD Trailer Released by Warner Bros. [81 Screenshots]

Thanks to a select few who decided to leak the exclusive Comic-Con Suicide Squad trailer to the Internet, Warner Bros. has let the pirates win and uploaded the official HD version of the footage online. After much hype around its premiere, there’s no surprise to why someone would want to share the trailer with everyone. The entire Suicide Squad can be seen in action, along with Jared Leto as the Joker and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Much to the chagrin of Warner Bros. with this leak, the studio should be happy that the Suicide Squad trailer is harboring so much love as the first looks at Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Leto’s Joker were met with polarizing responses. Seeing the two in action, as well as the rest of the squad, I have to say that I am definitely looking forward to what director David Ayer has in store.

A statement was made by Sue Kroll, Warner Bros. Pictures’ President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, on the decision to release the Comic-Con Suicide Squad trailer:

“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

It is a shame that fans who waited in line over 24 hours in the brutal San Diego sun to be the first to see the footage could not be the only ones privy to this exclusive content. Thanks to social media and the virality of online culture, the age of Comic-Con footage exclusives has definitely come to an end. The folks at Warner Bros. were smart to upload the Batman v Superman trailer immediately after the panel, but apparently an oversight of how well received the Suicide Squad trailer was made and they should have seen this coming.

Studios are going to have to step up their game like Lucasfilm to give Comic-Con fans a once in a lifetime experience like the private concert after the panel to avoid major mishaps like leaked footage. Otherwise there’s not point in even attending and wasting the money to show up if leaks like this continue to happen. There’s definitely a turd in the punchbowl and we can no longer hold ourselves to the honor system any longer.

Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad stars Jared Leto as The Joker, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Margot Robbie as Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot, Jai Courtney as George “Digger” Harkness aka Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Karen Fukuhara as Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana, Cara Delevingne as June Moone aka Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Waylon Jones aka Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Christopher Weiss aka Slipknot, and Jay Hernandez as Chato Santana aka El Diablo. This movie will be released in theaters on August 5, 2016.

Comic-Con 2015: The BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE Trailer is Over-Hyped [121 Screenshots]

After many debacles over leaked trailers – first with Avengers: Age of Ultron and then the Batman v Superman IMAX teaser – Warner Bros. spared no time to get the Comic-Con trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice up on the Internets officially only an hour after its big premiere in Hall H today.

There is no plot synopsis available for the film yet, but the first full-length Batman v Superman trailer definitely provides some pretty good insights on what we can expect. But from what I read on Twitter about the trailer, since I did not attempt to wait in line for Hall H, is that I expected it to blow my mind. And when I watched it for the first time, I thought to myself, “meh.” ¯_(ツ)_/¯

As far as the genre of superhero movies is concerned, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are taking the serious route to Grimsville. Which I’m completely OK with. That’s not what I have a problem with. I wouldn’t say I have superhero movie fatigue either because I’m still looking forward to Captain America: Civil War. What I believe the cause in my lack of engagement to the Batman v Superman trailer is that we have no familiarity with this iteration of the Batman (Ben Affleck). Nothing has been built up to make this epic showdown worthwhile, and Zack Snyder will have to establish this conflict quick and hard in the short time before the two titans of DC Comics collide.

Visually, thematically, and tonally I am digging everything they are throwing at me in this trailer, but there’s something internally telling me not to let my guard down. Let us not forget how incredibly cool the trailer for Zack Sndyer’s Sucker Punch looked and how that film turned out. The same could be said for Snyder’s Watchmen too – but I liked that film. I’m reserving any joy for this movie until March 25. However, there’s a lot to digest that could still make Batman v Superman a solid experience.

What catches my attention the most is the plot, and how the world is at conflict about Superman (Henry Cavill). Should he be held responsible for the battle against Zod in Metropolis? I doubt it’s just me, but I get a real homophobic vibe with all the picketers at Superman’s committee hearing – one says, “You can’t be Christian and an alien” while another says “God hates aliens.” Through all of this, we can see the wheels of manipulation spinning thanks to Lex Luther (Jesse Eisenberg). And finally, despite only having maybe four seconds of screen time, Gal Gadot looks fantastic as Wonder Woman; how she plays into the story isn’t hinted at. I can only imagine she was thrown into this trailer to equal out the bro-chismo.

Preview Night and Thursday Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

This is the moment you’ve all been preparing for people. San Diego Comic-Con. The grandaddy of them all. The place for cosplayers from around the globe to show the world what they’ve got. Turn The Right Corner will be on the scene all SDCC weekend to capture images of cosplayers in their natural environment.

As I trekked out into the sea of people downtown San Diego, I noticed that there didn’t seem to be as many cosplayers out and about during Preview Night or on Thursday. I remained vigilant, and scoured inside and outside of the convention center to ensure we found the best cosplayers of the weekend. Although there were many awesome cosplayers, much of what I found related to X-Men, The Avengers, Batman and DC villains, and Star Wars. Of course, I was most happy to run into an incredible Mad Max: Fury Road family group. They were fantastic!

The Coolest Comic-Con 2015 Booths, Exhibits, and Experiences

So here we are again. San Diego Comic-Con. The place that makes geek wet dreams come true. I definitely was excited to get my nerd on this weekend, and I’m always looking forward to seeing what new booths, exhibits, and experiences SDCC has to offer. Suffice it to say, I was a tad underwhelmed by most of what I saw inside and out of the San Diego Convention Center.

This is my fourth year attending Comic-Con. Every year I’m always expecting something different, looking to see new things, but as far as booths go, Comic-Con 2015 seemed a bit lackluster. Most of the major booths and exhibits such as Lionsgate, Warner Bros., DC Comics, Fox, Weta Workshop, Gentle Giant, Image Comics, Marvel, Nintendo, and X-Box among others were pretty much the same as the last few years. And even exhibitors like PlayStation were completely absent. Ubisoft and a few others cut back on the scale of their booths. Even Marvel downsized from a big video screen on their booth to just a giant scrawl to promote Ant-Man.

Last year, DC Comics gave a preview of the cape and cowl that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be wearing in Batman v Superman. This year they went one level up by showcasing the costumes of

However, there were some Comic-Con 2015 booths that did impress me. It wasn’t the movie studios who were going all out, but it was TV series who were making their mark on the show floor, and even outside. As per usual, The Walking Dead booth dominated the floor with a fun experience with multiple photo ops with the undead to tease the upcoming season – they also spoiled some major plot points from the last season. MTV’s Scream and History’s Vikings had fun booth experiences to get splattered by blood and walk away with some swag.

The most comprehensive Comic-Con 2015 booths weren’t inside however, they were outside the convention center. MTV’s Scream Queens had a carnival giant drop ride and FX hosted huge experiences such as an America Horror Story: Hotel recreation and a giant Fargo snow globe. Even Adult Swim had its own area for fans to play around in with a little carnival setting for folks to play games and win prizes.

Nerd HQ changed venues this year and instead of taking over PETCO Park they inhabited three levels of the New Children’s Museum. It was closer to the convention center and had more room for activities.

These are a few stray observations I noticed that I thought I would share. Many folks are not able to make it to Comic-Con and I hope this photo gallery will at least give you a solid taste of what it is like to walk around the epic convention.

Protected and raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin. Years later, at age 24, living in National City and working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant, Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO) and its head, Hank Henshaw, who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world.
