The title may be about someone else, but the full trailer shows that The Crimes of Grindelwald is all about Albus Dumbledore. The younger version of Harry Potter’s mentor (played by Jude Law) has a lot of power and baggage in the Fantastic Beasts sequel, and he’s the key to the events of this movie – and the future of the wizarding world.
If you weren’t at San Diego Comic Con this weekend (and probably if you were), you were likely super jazzed about the sheer amount of TV and film trailers scheduled to drop over the weekend. In a year without a big Marvel or Game of Thrones presence, these trailers still kept us on our toes and got us psyched for next year’s entertainment.
Here are our favorite trailers from Comic-Con 2018.
Mega Man is returning to television to kick some robot ass.
The first look at the upcoming Cartoon Network series Mega Man: Fully Charged dropped during Comic-Con on Saturday, giving the world a glimpse at the first episode with infamous boss Fire Man as the villain of the week. This video followed a trailer that shows Mega Man with various power-ups that he undoubtedly got from defeating bosses like Fire Man, just as he does in the games.
Patty Jenkins chose her Wonder Woman sequel’s setting and time period for a specific reason, it turns out.
The Wonder Woman 1984 director explained some of her thinking behind the upcoming movie’s Cold War-era setting during at appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday. For Jenkins, the first and second movie both occur when they do for a purpose.
Godzilla is here, he’s back, and he’s madder than ever in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con. In the sequel to 2014′s Godzilla, the king of monsters will face off against humanity alongside Mothra and King Ghidorah, while a human cast including Stranger Things‘s Millie Bobby Brown, Get Out‘s Bradley Whitford, and Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga watch and fight from their ant-like perspective.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters comes out May 31, 2019.
The first trailer for Aquaman dropped during Comic-Con on Saturday, featuring everyone’s favorite fish-based superhero.
The trailer digs into the origins of Aquaman with a scene of him as a child (who at that point had the name Arthur Curry) being bullied by some older kids in an aquarium who then back off when an actual shark stands up for Arthur. It looks like after whatever (hopefully succinct) origin DC has cooked up, we get into a whole bunch of super-powered action, some stuff…
Warner Bros. has shared a first look at Shazam!, starring Asher Angel as a kid who gains the ability to transform into a grown-up superhero (Zachary Levi) by uttering a magic word.
In contrast to the gloom and doom of the Batman and Superman movies, or even the seriousness of Wonder Woman, Shazam! looks light and funny. Because Lord knows the DC universe could use some of that right now.

At Comic-Con Saturday, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part star Chris Pratt commented on the way his character’s journey from unassuming everyman to world-saving Special mirrored his own real-life career.
“When I was first given the role, I was Andy on Parks and Recreation,” he said. “By the time we finished our recording session, I was Star-Lord.”
“So that arc – it was one of those moments where you think, My life is a computer simulation and I am living in the Matrix.”
Nothing Donald Trump does is subtle, especially when speaking in public.
Whether it’s shouting declarations about making America “great again” or yelling something a bit more derogatory towards someone he doesn’t like (the press, our foreign allies, whoever hasn’t given him his way recently), Trump is never not emphatic. The man loves to yell.
