Batman vs. Superman trailer released at Comic-Con.

The San Diego Comic Con is over for another year and so the internet has once again been flooded by fan footage of trailers not yet officially available.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.With ten DC superhero movies scheduled for release in the next five years and rival Marvel Studios already way ahead in big screen success, Warner Bros. had a lot to prove at its Comic-Con panel this year.

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. After showing the latest Batman v Superman trailer, DC went one step further to show some footage from their upcoming supervillain movie featuring Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Will Smith’s Deadshot and Jared Leto’s Joker.

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. The leaked footage has a very dark tone, and ends with Leto’s Joker starring into the camera, saying: “I’m just going to hurt you, really, really, bad.” Watch it before it gets taken down.

Fans in the 6,500-person capacity Hall H nearly lost their minds on several occasions as the studio brought out nearly the entire casts of next year’s Batman vs. There’s been a lot of controversy over Leto playing the Joker in recent weeks, with many criticising his tattooed look in the sneak peak we were given earlier this year. Stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and Jesse Eisenberg were on hand to talk about the superhero showdown, too — a step up from last year’s Comic-Con when none of the stars was allowed to talk.

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 tell the story of a team of supervillains who take on dangerous black op missions for the government and has been filming over the last couple of weeks. The super-villain movie also stars Viola Davis as Amanda Walker, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Scott Eastwood as Steve Trevor and Jai Courtney as Boomerang. While Holly Hunter’s steadfast Senator schemes with Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor to protect the public from the dangerous Superman, Affleck’s Batman decides to take matters into his own hands. “The idea of Batman fighting Superman is a thing that happens all the time in comic books,” said Zack Snyder, who also directed “Man of Steel.” He likes to pay homage to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight but wanted to make clear that this story is not that story. “I think if I thought too hard about the actors who played this part before, I couldn’t have taken the job,” said Affleck. In case you did miss anything, we’ve rounded up all the best trailers and special clips shown, from Con Man to Star Wars, plus the leaked Suicide Squad, X-men and Deadpool trailers.

Nobody else engaged in direct smack talk with their Disney-owned rival, but with Marvel absent from Comic-Con this year, Warner blew up its presentation bigger than any other studio in a bid to gin up fanboy mania. One shot that stood out was Robin’s suit, tagged by the Joker, leading many to believe Jared Leto may be appearing in this film before Suicide Squad. Lucasfilms really went all out on their Comic Con panel, bringing in Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill to chat with the crowd of adoring fans. When the cast spoke afterwards, Ben Affleck was asked to compare his Batman to past ones on screen and said, “He’s at the end of his rope, he’s older, he’s a burnout.” Affleck also said that soon before he started shooting, he ran into Christian Bale while shopping for a Batman Halloween costume for his son.

After a fantastic panel featuring Hugh Jackman – who is so far not confirmed for this film – Fox decided to show a three minute trailer teasing their latest X-Men film. Indeed, some elements of DC Comics canon have been changed, including making Batman’s Gotham City and Superman’s Metropolis sister cities located across a bay from each other. One new revelation was that 2020s reboot of the 2011 flop Green Lantern will showcase the comic books’ entire intergalactic security force and be titled Green Lantern Corps. In addition to its DC movies, Warner also showed footage and showcased the casts of August’s adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and October’s Peter Pan origin story Pan. 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.
