Comic Con 2016 Trailer Reviews-Movies

Hello everyone,

This week was Comic-Con, which meant new trailers to upcoming movies, I was going to do one trailer at a time, but I decided to do one part which will be movies and tomorrow I will talk about the TV shows.

The first trailer I want to talk about is Doctor Strange.

Like Guardians of The Galaxy before this, I don’t have much knowledge about the character outside from a few crossovers with other comics. But judging by the trailer, this looks visually spectacular. Benedict Cumberbatch looks great as Doctor Strange and I am excited to see it.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I already talked about the first trailer. Click here. But I am very excited for this movie, mainly because I want to see an expanded universe of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Wonder Women

While the reception of Batman v Superman was mixed at best, one of the main highlights was Gal Godot as Wonder Women. This trailer got me the most excited. It gave us color in the DCEU and the action scenes looks great. It also made me wonder what Thor: The Dark World would have looked liked if Patty Jenkins stayed on as director. But this movie also has a lot to live up to because this is first female-led comic book movie in years, and most of the female-led have been really bad. But this trailer gives me hope for female-led comic book movies.

Justice League

This is the DCEU answer to Marvels Avengers. While the reception for Batman v Superman was mixed, it seems like the DCEU is answering the criticisms, like adding more color and some lightness without being very grim dark like the previous movies.  I also liked scene that introduced Barry Allen as the Flash. While I am a fan of Grant Gustin’s Flash for the CW series, I just have to accept that the universes are not connected. Hopefully both Wonder Women and Justice League will fix some of the problems the DCEU and could compete with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Those are my thoughts on the trailer. Do you have any favorite trailers from Comic-Con? Let me know in the comments below.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Trailer Review

We are now back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with a spin off series based on the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

It stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the author of Fantastic Beasts; in which he meets a secret community of wizards and witches in New York City. What I like about this trailer is that it still nails the tone of the Harry Potter movies, and how the movie isn’t really based on the book, but about the making of the book.

What also makes me excited about the trailer is the fact that we are seeing more of an expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and according to JK Rowling it is a spin off. The only reference to the Harry Potter is the name drop of Albus Dumbledore and Hogwarts.

I am very excited about this movie and hope we could see more of the Wizarding World universe.
