The biggest news out of San Diego Comic-Con

Superheroes set the stage at San Diego Comic-Con.

The annual fan convention was dominated by news and hints at Batman, Thor, the Hulk and Ant-Man.

Here’s a look at the biggest takeaways from the event:

“Thor: Ragnarok”

Wonder Woman the star among Warner Bros’ expanding superhero franchise

Possibly the most impressive video to come out of SDCC, the “Thor: Ragnarok” trailer reunited the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) — but not before a gladiator-style fight.

Ruffalo, however, has previously teased that the movie will end up as a buddy film rather than a battle between the heroes.

“Thor: Ragnarok” will be released on Nov. 3.

“Wonder Woman”

The record-breaking female superhero movie will return for a sequel, Warner Bros. revealed. Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Diana Prince.

“Wonder Woman” is now officially the highest grossing summer film, bringing in $389 million domestically. That beats the previous leader, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which took in $387 million.

“Justice League”

The day of heroes has come again as Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) reunite to fight the latest villain, Ciarán Hinds’ Steppenwolf.

Superman died in “Batman v Superman,” but the last scene of the trailer — plus Zack Snyder’s previous comments — hint that the Man of Steel might not actually be gone forever.


Despite rampant speculation, Affleck confirmed he’ll return as the Dark Knight in the upcoming “The Batman.”

“I know there’s this misconception because I didn’t direct it that I wasn’t enthusiastic about it,” he said. “It’s f–king amazing. I still can’t believe it.”

Matt Reeves took over for Affleck after he left his director role in January.

“Stranger Things”

The first full trailer of the fan favorite Netflix shows brings everyone back to Hawkins in all its ‘90s glory, including Michael Jackson and Dragon’s Lair.

“Stranger Things” returns Oct. 27.


The first look at the second season of “Westworld” all but confirms the robot uprising promised in the first season finale.

“Ant-Man and the Wasp”

Michelle Pfeiffer has joined “Ant-Man and the Wasp” as Janet Van Dyne, who is the original Wasp and mother of Hope Van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly.

In the Marvel comics, Van Dyne, wife of original Ant-Man Hank Pym, was one of the first Avengers.

Pfeiffer previously played Catwoman in the 1992 “Batman Returns.”
