Comic Con: Watch the 9 best trailers and clips at this years’ convention, from Star Wars to Suicide Squad.

This year’s Comic-Con allowed attending fans the chance to see unreleased footage of forthcoming blockbusters but, thanks to some unwanted uploads, two major films have also seen their early trailers leaked online.The first whiff of Jared Leto’s new take on The Joker came during the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice panel at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.The cast of the much-awaited film “Suicide Squad”, including Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis, made a surprise appearance at ongoing Comic-Con.

It wasn’t quite enough to top the selfie featuring the cast of X-Men: Apocaplypse, Fantastic Four, Gambit, Deadpool, and The Wolverine at the 20th Century Fox panel but we’re not complaining. The previews for the eagerly anticipated antihero movies Suicide Squad and Deadpool were initially premiered in front of a live audience but covertly filmed and pirate copies surfaced online soon after. During the unveiled trailer for the film, there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot of Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne staring at his bulky Batsuit, and scribbled all over it in neon writing is: “HAHAHA JOKE’S ON YOU BATMAN”—clearly the mark of The Joker, and a good sign that the green-haired maniac will cameo in the film. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman — every major DC hero got his or her moment. “There’s a massive DC universe that’s just waiting to explode,” said “Batman v Superman” director Zack Snyder.

Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Common, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholz, Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje and Karen Fukuhara also attended the Suicide Squad panel. Sue Kroll, the president of worldwide marketing and international distribution for Warner Bros, spoke out about the leak of the studio’s Suicide Squad trailer: “It’s unfortunate and ultimately damaging that one individual broke a long-standing trust we have enjoyed with our fans at the convention by posting early material, which, at this point, was not intended for a wider audience.” Kroll said the film is still in production and added: “Our presentation yesterday was designed to be experienced in that room, on those big screens!” The leaked footage, which offers a first look at the film starring Will Smith and Jared Leto, has already received more than 5.7m views.

Director David Ayer took the stage to offer the first extended look at “Suicide Squad,” slated for 2016, which will bring together a group of villains to do good in their own bad way. Jared Leto, who plays The Joker, was noticeble absent from the panel although he makes a strong appearance in the first trailer, which was unveiled during the event. We already know that David Ayer’s (End of Watch) supervillain team-up flick, due in theaters August 5, 2016, will feature Affleck’s Batman hunting Leto’s Joker during an intense chase sequence. Suicide Squad will become part of DC’s new extended universe, with its tale of criminals working together set to connect with Zack Snyder’s Batman and Superman match up. The cast includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Leto (Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), and more. “The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character—that’s what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right?” Leto previously said of why he accepted the role. “[He’s] this beautiful disaster of a character—what a big challenge.” Of course, Leto has some pretty big shoes to fill—that of the late Heath Ledger, who won a posthumous Oscar for his final screen role in The Dark Knight, and Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s original Batman.

As expected, Warner Bros. released the massive trailer for their upcoming superhero brawl, and it were enough DC references to leave fans going crazy. Lucasfilms really went all out on their Comic Con panel, bringing in Harrison Ford, Cariie Fisher and Mark Hamill to chat with the crowd of adoring fans.

Affleck said Snyder initially pitched him a vision for a Batman who was “at the end of his rope, older, a burnout” and charmed the crowd with a story of running into Christian Bale at a Halloween store while shopping for a costume with his son — in the superhero section, no less. While the new teaser was relatively light on scenes of Wonder Woman, Gadot spoke of the honor and responsibility she feels at taking on the iconic role. But the Warner Bros. panel also featured the studio’s big-screen adaptation of the 1960s espionage film “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” opening next month, and director Joe Wright’s Peter Pan origin story “Pan.” Follow our Comic-Con reporting at the Los Angeles Times Comic-Con team in this Twitter list. After a fantastic panel featuring Hugh Jackman – who is so far not in this film – the Fox decided to show a three minute trailer teasing their latest X-Men film. One of the first big trailers to be shown, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman both appeared as Victorian versions of their characters in this fantastic clip.

Many fans were left disappointed with the Heroes series after the first season so there’s a lot of expectations riding on reboot Heroes Reborn to pull things back together.
