For those of us, the unfortunate millions, who do not get the opportunity to partake in the awesomeness that is ComicCon San Diego this particular time of the year is still super fuggin’ exciting because thanks to the power of the media and the Internet and social media we can still SEE the silly, crazy, most of the time overwhelmingly fantastic shit than is released during the convention. For me personally, it all comes down to ComicCon San Diego 2017 Movie Trailers!
I wanted to wait before putting together a post about all the trailers and teasers released during Comic-Con, until the actual END of Comic-Con, as I think as of the time I’m writing this, the convention is actually still going. But I couldn’t wait. If anymore goodies are released I’ll just update this post so continue to check back.
What I’ve listed here may also not be everything because what I’ve listed here kind’ve center on the really geeky nerdy shit I enjoy and have been posting all along on The Geekocracy, so you probably won’t see any dramas, horrors, chick-flicks on here. Sorry, but….not actually?
Anyways, here is what I have so far. If I’m missing anything let me know in the comments below and if it jives with everything else I typically post on the site I’ll add in post haste!
ComicCon San Diego 2017 Movie Trailers
Ready, Player, One
In the year 2044, the world has been gripped by an energy crisis from the depletion of fossil fuels and the consequences of global warming, causing widespread social problems and economic stagnation. To escape the decline their world is facing, people turn to the OASIS[a], a virtual reality simulator accessible by players using visors and haptic technology such as gloves. It functions both as an MMORPG and as a virtual society, with its currency being the most stable in the real world. It was created by James Halliday who, when he died, had announced in his will to the public that he had left an Easter egg inside OASIS, and the first person to find it would inherit his entire fortune and the corporation. The story follows the adventures of Wade Watts, starting about five years after the announcement, when he discovers one of the three keys pointing to the treasure.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
