Gal Gadot at an event for Wonder Woman (2017)

The Wonder Woman trailer reveals how the superheroine meets Steve Trevor.

The first full-length trailer for the highly anticipated film revealed several key plot points and gave viewers a first glimpse at several key characters. Diana Prince/Wonder Woman (Gal Godot) sees a man for the very first time when Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), washes up on her island, Themyscira. There was also footage of Wonder Woman's mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) and General Antiope (Robin Wright Penn) leading a battalion, and one of the baddies played by Danny Huston. The trailer is action-packed and shows some epic fight scenes (Hello, Golden Lasso!) in Europe. We also get a closer look at some of Wonder Woman’s armor pieces in action.

Bruce Wayne assembles the Justice League -- without Superman.

Warner Bros. surprised fans with a trailer for Justice League, which gave viewers a good look at the members of the fledgling superhero coalition. We saw Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck), and Barry Allen/The Flash (Ezra Miller.) Victor Stone/Cyborg (Ray Fisher) makes a strong impression in both his human and full-armored Cyborg form, which is a result of his father’s life-saving work from the footage we caught in Batman v Superman. Noticeably absent from the trailer is Superman (Henry Cavill.)

However, the Man of Steel will be a big part of Justice League.

After the trailer was shown, the cast assembled on stage. Justice League director Zack Snyder announced, “The Justice League has an additional character. We all know that character died. I don’t want to ruin it, but you gotta have Superman!” Cavill then appeared on stage.

Margot Robbie at an event for Suicide Squad (2016)

Margot Robbie did her own stunts in Suicide Squad.

The cast of the highly-anticipated Suicide Squad took the stage next. Director David Ayer revealed that he wanted the cast to do as many stunts as possible. Although Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, had a stuntwoman on set, the actress did most of the work herself. “I don’t know anyone in the business right now who would have the stamina and the will and the talent to pull off what Margot pulled off," said Ayer. "When you see the film, you’re going to see her doing her own fighting, her own stunts. We had a double, but I think the double was in Craft Services eating.”

Jared Leto at an event for Suicide Squad (2016)

Jared Leto brought out the best in the Suicide Squad cast.

The cast of Suicide Squad had high praise for Jared Leto, who plays the Joker. “He really kicked everybody into another level and a level of focus of doing this right," said Will Smith. Ayer added, “The contribution of both nailing the role and being so courageous is [that] he’s the guy who really galvanized the cast. He was the hammer that made that sword shine.”

Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston at an event for Kong: Skull Island (2017)

The Kong: Skull Island cast likes to binge watch.

While a Skull Island trailer dropped during the panel, the cast revealed little about the film. They were more forthcoming about their TV viewing habits. Corey Hawkins is bingeing "Mr. Robot." When Tom Hiddleston is feeling under the weather, he turns to "Fawlty Towers” for comfort. Brie Larson admitted she currently loves "Stranger Things" and "Game of Thrones." John Goodman brought down Hall H when he said, “I like to watch 'Roseanne' and say the lines before Dan.”
