The Batman vs. Superman panel at Comic-Con was one of the most anticipated this year, not just for what we knew was happening — stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot were all confirmed to be in attendance — but also for what we didn’t know what would happen. Warner Bros. promised some “unexpected surprises” in addition to the new Batman vs. Superman footage and fans were camped out for many miles and hours to get a first look at the new DC Movie Universe.

Just as The Man From U.N.C.L.E. portion of the WB panel ended at Comic-Con 2015, the extended trailer for Guy Ritchie’s upcoming action flick has arrived online.

20th Century Fox is holding their big Comic-Con 2015 panel tonight, where we’ll likely see new stuff from X-Men: Apocalypse and Fantastic Four. But if you can’t wait until then, you can get your first look at X-Men’s newest villain right now via an official poster that’s circulating around Comic-Con today.
There was no new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens at this year’s Star Wars Comic-Con panel. Nor was there any exclusive footage or scenes from the film. But there was a short behind-the-scenes video so full of magic and wonder that it’s hard to watch without getting a little misty-eyed. Excuse us, but it’s getting a little dusty in here.
We’d known it was coming, and Bruce Campbell teased us plenty, but nothing brings out Ash Vs. Evil Dead like a full-barrel boomstick and chainsaw trailer. See Ash reborn to fight a new wave of Deadites, and Hail to the King by the full promo, you groovy babies!
Without a doubt, of all the toys and figures and collectibles at Comic-Con 2015, the most anticipated and desired are the new toys from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The first products from the upcoming film won’t hit stores until September 4, which Lucasfilm has dubbed “Force Friday,” but you can get a peek at the new First Order TIE Fighter and other Star Wars figures right now.
The Walking Dead Season 5 left us on a relatively safe cliffhanger teasing the reunion of Rick and Morgan, but Season 6 may well bring all the Alexandria walls down.

Sony PlayStation’s first original series, Powers managed to handcuff a second season to debut in 2016, for which the first season finale left a staggering mystery. Now at Comic-Con 2015, the Powers panel reveals the addition of fan-favorite writer Ben Edlund, some candid reflection on Season 1, and a major new superhero to boot.
Doctor Who had a timeline’s worth of work to do last year in introducing Peter Capaldi as Matt Smith’s replacement, regrettably costing Whovian fans a Comic-Con appearance. Now, Peter Capaldi makes his Doctor Who debut at Comic-Con 2015 to preview the ninth season of the series, teasing plenty of twists and turns for Missy, Clara, The Doctor, and all those in Season 9's path.
Infrequently though they appear on our TV screens, Sherlock and Watson have been showing their faces of late for the upcoming special episode, which takes Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman all the way back to their Victorian London roots. We're on hand at Comic-Con 2015 to see the crime-solving duo back in action, way back, what do producers have to say of Series 4 and beyond?
