Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Trailer
The next D&D movie trailer looks fantastic, which is possibly one of the best surprises to come out of San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
The Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves teaser trailer offers a sneak peek at the feel of the new adaptation, which appears to be lighter-hearted than fans had anticipated. The mythical creatures, people, and places that are displayed in the trailer were all thoughtfully chosen for the benefit of the franchise’s ardent followers. The filmmakers have fulfilled the demands of the most ardent fans while also encouraging new viewers to experience an incredible fantasy adventure.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Trailer

It also gives us our first look at Sauron.
Tales of The Walking Dead Trailer
It really seems like The Walking Dead is the new CSI. While many of us have stopped watching a long time ago, AMC continues to output more spin-off shows and movies. Tales of the Walking Dead, which arrives on August 14, 2022, stars Terry Crews, Olivia Munn, and Parker Posey. The synopsis reads: “6 different stories. 1 Dead world.”
During San Diego Comic-Con 2022, AMC also announced that the Andrew Lincoln & Danai Gurira Make movie which focuses on Rick Grimes and Michonne will now be turned into a TV show spin-off instead.
Disney+’s I Am Groot Trailer
I Am Groot, one of the newest Marvel Disney+ shows, follows Baby Groot (voiced once again by Vin Diesel) as he embarks on a series of adorable adventures on a planet teeming with even tinier adorable creatures.
This is easily one of the cutest trailers revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
Teen Wolf: The Movie Trailer
If Teen Wolf is your vibe, you’ll be happy to know there’s a feature film on the way — and it will feature all your favourite characters from the show. Simply titled Teen Wolf: The Movie, this was one of the first trailers released during San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
National Treasure: Edge of History Trailer
A National Treasure show without Nicolas Cage? Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has taken a very different approach with the franchise, ditching the films for a youthful TV series on Disney+ instead. The San Diego Comic-Con 2022 teaser trailer introduces us to the new face of treasure hunting: Lisette Olivera’s Jess Morales (any relation to Miles Morales?).
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Trailer

During the Directors on Directing panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the first trailer from Chad Stahelski’s John Wick Chapter 4 (in theatres on March 24, 2023) arrived. As expected, the footage showcases Keanu Reeves’ Wick training and beating up a wide variety of goons.
Shazam! Fury of The Gods Trailer
David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! surprised many DC fans with its playful take on the classic superhero. Now the team is back for a sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods. As expected, there’s a lot of laughs, action and fun.
Black Adam Trailer
After much hype about Henry Cavill appearing at the Hall of H alongside Dwayne Johnson — which didn’t happen — fans were bitterly disappointed that the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 trailer for Black Adam didn’t share a hint of the eventual Superman and Shazam vs Black Adam battle.
“Hall H, you have been warned. The DC universe will never be the same again,” announced The Rock at the event. Except, everything was pretty much the same. Warner Bros. continues to disappoint DC fans by not delivering on what they want.
On the flip side of things, Marvel delivered a few huge surprises.
