Comic-Con 2018 has officially ended, which means, we can bring you more of the trailers that were released during the event this past weekend. We have already featured a few trailers in our last post, but there are plenty more to see now.
Everyone made fun of the poster, but now that the trailer is officially here, it doesn’t look like it will be a winner. Aquaman has always been a bit of an underdog character, so it’s hard to make an entertaining movie based off this character. Not to mention, DC hasn’t always delivered high-quality movies based off their comics (with Wonder Woman as the exception). Let us know what you think about this one.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Who didn’t love the first Fantastic Beasts movie? I know I did. And that means I think I’m going to love this one. At least, based on the trailer, I think I will. What makes this so spectacular is that it has come out of the same Harry Potter universe, which we’ve grown to love.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
We saw a teaser for the new Godzilla movie a few days ago, but now the full trailer is upon us. We now officially know what the characters will be up to in the movie, and it looks really amazing. The whole idea for Godzilla is kind of scary, but maybe this will make you feel differently about the monster?
Glass is the third part of a trilogy that we never knew was going to be a trilogy. The film will follow the events in M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016). There was a big break between the first two movies, so how this will shake down is anyone’s guess. I mean, a trailer can only tell you so much.
Think of Shazam as a superhero version of Big. Why? Well, there’s a kid who has a pretty incredible superpower. He becomes an adult superhero with a single magic word, and this happens whenever help is needed. It also looks like it’s going to be funny, and it’s definitely a nice change of pace from other DC Comics movies.
While we don’t know a lot about the new Doctor Who season, but we do know that there is a brand new doctor coming, and she’s female! As I said in our previous post, I think that this will help draw more people to the series and give it a bit of a fresh take. I’m not saying that this is necessary given the #TimesUp movement, but I do think that we need to think about characters less in terms of their gender or color, and more in terms of the storyline. Could a woman be the doctor? Ummmm… of course. And if you thought otherwise, then you need to start reading some feminist literature.
Star Trek: Discovery
Last, but certainly not least, (and also not one that was shown at Comic-Con) but definitely one of my favorites – Star Trek: Discovery. If you were able to keep up with Season 1, then you’re likely as desperate as I am to get your hands on Season 2. There were so many twists and turns that it literally kept me up at night, anticipating the next episode. I think CBS has done a really good job with this revival.
