For the uninitiated, San Diego Comic Con is the convention where geek-centric media tends to make announcements. In consequence a lot has happened in the past few days, including many trailers and previous for upcoming seasons of television.
There are two, nearly identical trailers running around. The first ended with Green Arrow speaking, the second has a VERY worthwhile clip at the end.
Roy Harper will become Arsenal this season.
Duane Johnson/ The Rock more or less confirmed he will be playing Captain Marvel/ Shazam, likely in a stand-alone movie.
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
Guardians of the Galaxy
While there are plenty of videos running around the internet since it’s releasing August 1st, Marvel announced Guardians 2 will be written and directed by James Gunn, to be released July 27th or 28th in 2017. Conflicting reports exist over specific date.

This will take place between Captain America and the Marvel One Shot Agent Carter. The series will include undisclosed USSR villains, and will feature Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark’s butler as liason between Stark and Carter.
