SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con 2016 did not disappoint as several blockbuster trailers were released over the weekend.

Warner Bros. and DC comics released three trailers for upcoming movies. They all received positive reviews from fans in attendance and then on social media.  

The three were the first "Wonder Woman" trailer, the first "Justice League" trailer and a new "Suicide Squad" trailer. You can watch them all here: 

 

 

Marvel Studios took a year off from Comic-Con, but it came back with a pow with a spectacle and star-filled presentation offering exclusive looks at "Spider-Man: Homecoming," ''Doctor Strange" and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2." 

They kicked things off with "Black Panther," which doesn't start shooting until January for a release in 2018.    

While there weren't any assets to tease, they did bring out the cast, including star Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, the just-announced Danai Gurira, best known for "The Walking Dead," and director Ryan Coogler.  

Audiences also saw a hilarious documentary-style "Thor" spoof from "Thor: Ragnarok" director Taika Waititi imagining what Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was up to while his buddies were off battling each other in "Captain America: Civil War." Essentially, Thor moves to Australia and gets a dumpy white-collar roommate. 

"Thor: Ragnarok" has just started filming for a Nov. 2017 release. Those in Hall H also got a sneak peek at "Spider-Man: Homecoming," which is just 10 days into its shoot.  

Marvel Studios unveiled initial footage showing star Tom Holland as Peter Parker in the latest big-screen reboot of the web-slinger. It's the first modern "Spider-Man" movie to be done with the supervision of Marvel Studios. It's being co-produced by Sony Pictures. The film comes out next July.

Marvel also unveiled the second trailer for "Doctor Strange," starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Costumed ravagers took the stage to help tease "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," out next year, as did stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista.

Kurt Russell, also present for the panel, was confirmed as Star Lord's (Pratt) father in a newly release trailer, resulting in a resounding cheer from the audience. 

Marvel closed things out on a high note, however, with an obligatory all-Marvel photo, including the new Captain Marvel herself - Oscar-winner Brie Larson, who was greeted with a rapturous standing ovation.

Other popular trailers released from the star-studded weekend included:

A sequel to the 1999 horror cult classic "The Blair Witch Project."

"King Arthur: Legend of the Sword"

A new take on the King Kong legend with "Kong: Skull Island."

And a treat for die-hard Harry Potter fans with "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."
