This morning the room was filled with rabid fans anxious to get a glimpse at all that Warner Bros. had to offer in Hall H for this exciting SDCC Saturday.
The presentation opened with an incredible sizzle reel showing clips form WB’s biggest films including Mad Max Fury Road, The Matrix, The Hobbit films, and Batman V. Superman Dawn of Justice. What made this reel special was that the wrap around screen in the Hall was utilized throughout the entire event adding to the clips.
Comedian and actress Aisha Tyler hosted the presentation and the first film presented was The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with a brand new trailer for the film after a clip that director Guy Ritchie sent over.
After the trailer the Cast was brought out which included Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikaner, and Elizabeth Debicki. They answered some fan questions and talked about the film, but it quickly moved on to the next film Pan.
Pan opened with a quick clip using the wrap around screens effectively and then the cast was brought out along with a screening of the new trailer for the film. The cast included Garrett Hedlund, Levi Miller, Hugh Jackman, and the director Joe Wright.
One of the most interesting points that was made during their showing was that Jackman described that Neverland was a practical set and not completely green screen. This includes the pirate ships shown. It then moved on to another new clip, followed by an exchange of panels leading into DC Films.
The words DC Films was splashed across the screens with clips of their films as well as many images of iconic moments in comic history. The crowd was excited and you could feel the energy in the room grow as new concept art was shown including clips from Suicide Squad and Batman V. Superman was shown.
Director David Ayer was welcomed on to the stage as he introduced a completely new trailer for Suicide Squad showing footage of the entire squad and ending on a shot of Jared Leto as The Joker
When this trailer ended the entire cast of the film was brought out on to the stage excluding Jared Leto. They quickly made their appearance with Will Smith quickly making a statement before they had to switch out for the next segment.
The final and most anticipated portion followed immediately. The time had come for Batman V. Superman Dawn of Justice to be shown some more. Zack Snyder was brought out and he introduced a brand new trailer.
Check out the trailer below:
When the trailer finished the cast of the film was brought out which included Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter. They answered fan questions and discussed the film and their experiences. This concluded the Warner Bros. presentation on a definite high note.
The event was an incredible experience for a fan. There were a lot of clips, cast members, and moments that left a lot of people speechless. It was a complete success and like the Lucasfilm panel from Friday night it was exciting and epic. Warner Bros. brought heavy hitting trailers and footage this year and they were determined to make a mark, which they did.
