This year's San Diego Comic-Con is quite different than it has been in previous years because, well, it's not taking place in San Diego -- at least not exclusively. As a result of the social distancing brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Comic-Con is instead taking place virtually. Although we won't get to see what cool cosplay concepts people came up with for SDCC, the good news is that it's free for everyone to attend, rather than being exclusive to those who can spring for tickets and travel.
One thing that isn't changing this year is the bevy of creative panels on this year's schedule and all the visual goodies they give to fans -- including plenty of trailers.
To keep you up to speed on everything that's been released in connection with this year's Comic-Con@Home event, we've rounded up all of the major trailers from the event right here!
The latest trailer for Lovecraft Country, HBO's horror thriller from Underground co-creator Misha Green, arrived on Friday. Suspense, intrigue, demons, and terrifying squid-like monsters abound in the latest clip that sets up the summer's most anticipated series.
Everyone's favorite animated super-spy is back in action, baby! Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) wakes up from his coma -- for real! -- in the Season 11 trailer and has to adjust to everyone having decided to be professional spies again, emphasis on professional. Avoiding HR investigations will once again be Archer's toughest trial in the upcoming season, but he'll fail at it with an awesome new cane this time.
Did anyone here order a superhero series guaranteed to inspire nightmares? The first trailer for Marvel's Helstrom, which premieres on Hulu in October, promises the series will do just that. Adapted from the "Son of Satan" comic series, Helstrom will take you to a horror-centric part of the Marvel universe with this dysfunctional family tale. Definitely watch this one with a security blanket ready.
Comic-Con@Home gave us our first good look at The Walking Dead: World Beyond, the latest saga from The Walking Dead universe, and it has some real Stand By Me with a strong dose of zombies vibes. Teens who have essentially grown up in a walled community while walkers took over the outside world leave the comfort of their sheltered life and embark on a cross-country trek. Danger lurks around every corner of this two-season event, and we get our first taste this October.
The hunt is on for Morgan (Lennie James) in the first trailer for Fear the Walking Dead Season 6. We don't know exactly what state he is in by the end of the trailer, but the ending shot is a creepy closeup of Morgan's head with his eyes gone completely red, so no matter what, we should be very disturbed about what's going to go down in the upcoming episodes.
Mad Men's John Slattery stars in NEXT, a new Fox event series about a deadly rogue artificial intelligence system. Slattery plays a Silicon Valley pioneer trying to stop one of his own creations, a powerful A.I., from killing millions of people -- even as some think he's just being paranoid. He teams up with a cybercrime agent (Fernanda Andrade) and her team to take on technology with a mind of its own.
