Three things you might have missed from Comic-Con
Get your heart racing
Wonder Woman makes an explosive entrance in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice
The trio of Spandex superpowers have landed. You already know the story: The worlds of Gotham City and Metropolis collide in a showdown of showdowns between Batman and Superman. Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice's first official trailer was released yesterday, and has already racked up more than 17 million views at our time of publication. Slated for release next year, it features a star-studded cast including Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Jeremy Irons. But amid hype over who's going to win this tiresome good cop/bad cop routine and the possibility of a bald Eisenberg (who plays the villainous Lex Luthor), we're keeping our eyes peeled for Wonder Woman, who we see electrifying glimpses of in this trailer. Israeli beauty Gal Gadot takes on this warrior princess, who trades the signature bright red and gold bustier for a tougher alternative.
Ghostbusters bust out their first official cast in full costume
After hyping the remake by tweeting a photo of the new Ecto-1, Ghostbusters (2016) director Paul Feig tweeted a photo of the ghost-hunting squad in front of the Ecto-1 in full uniform and carrying their proton packs. While the director wasn't present at the convention (although Bill Murray was, but for an entirely different movie Rock The Kasbah), he saw an opportune time to drop the official photo, much to the delight of fans and dismay of those loyal to the original. Who are you going to call?
Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Jimmy Jean-Louis and Sendhil Ramamurtry return for Heroes spin-off, Heroes Reborn
Prepare for a resurrection of one of the greatest original series of the decade. Heroes Reborn, a spin-off of the Heroes series released its first official full trailer on Sunday. Five years after we last saw the evolved humans, a new miniseries set to broadcast in September sees returning characters among new ones with even newer powers. From the looks of the trailer, it appears that an organisation is bent on wiping out these evolved humans, and the heroes must stand together or die trying. While Heroes saw actors Hayden Panetierre and Zachary Quinto in their breakout roles, this reboot won't see their return. However, you'll see Masi Oka reprise his role as Hiro, returning from a brain tumor ordeal looking mighty fine at sword-fighting.
