Here's every trailer that debuted at New York Comic Con 2018. As usual, the four-weekend epic that is NYCC was the host to a variety of studios, outlets, and fans, and the various properties that held panels at the convention made sure attendees got their money's worth of first looks.
New York Comic Con isn't quite as busy as San Diego Comic-Con has become, but it has continued to grow in recent years. More movies and TV shows are using the Big Apple buzz to gather large crowds and start or continue their marketing campaigns. Last year saw the release of the first trailer for Pacific Rim Uprising, with the movie's cast and crew reporting for a huge panel to get fans of the franchise ready for the next installment. Other highly anticipated TV series' like John Krasinski's Amazon series Jack Ryan also saw the launch of their first trailers.
The uptick in first looks was expected to come from the floors of New York Comic Con once again this year. However, other properties still joined the trailer drop mayhem. Warner Bros. debuted an extended trailer for Aquaman online, while Marvel got ahead of the pack by releasing the first Runaways season 2 trailer ahead of the Hulu series getting a panel of their own. But, as for the trailers that actually did debut at NYCC, here's every single one.
Star Trek: Discovery
CBS All Access shared the first trailer for Star Trek: Discovery's second season during their own NYCC panel. Sonequa Martin-Green returns to star as Michael Burnham, but the new season is also set to feature some big names from Star Trek lore. Anson Mount will appear as Captain Pike, while Ethan Peck joined the series to play Burnham's adopted brother Spock. The Star Trek: Discovery trailer finally shows the first look at these two characters in action, and a lot more besides. Star Trek: Discovery was also confirmed to return January 2019 following the debut of this trailer.
Amazon brought the first season of Good Omens, based on the novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, to NYCC 2018, as well as a teaser trailer. The series stars David Tennant as the demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale. Both were on hand for the Good Omens panel and trailer premiere, along with Gaiman - who serves as the showrunner on the series - and fellow cast members John Hamm and Miranda Richardson. Neither were shown in the trailer, which instead focused squarely on Crowley and Aziraphale's adventures throughout the years. Amazon has not yet confirmed Good Omens' release date, only indicating a debut next year.
Amazon also brought the first teaser trailer for The Boys to NYCC as part of the show's panel. Based on the Garth Ennis comic, this live-action adaptation comes from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and showrunner Eric Kripke. After releasing a first look image that perfectly recreated the cover of the first comic issue, The Boys' trailer focused primarily on The Seven, a group of superheroes that have been corrupted by their fame. This team is made up of Homelander (Anthony Starr), the new recruit Starlight (Erin Moriarty), the Deep (Chace Crawford), Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), and A-Train (Jessie T. Usher). But, the true stars of the series only appear at the end, led by Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), as they give the middle finger to the super team they despise. Amazon has not set an official air date for The Boys, but the first season is expected to debut next year.
Another Neil Gaiman adaptation to receive its first trailer at NYCC was the second season of Starz' American Gods. Picking up after the events of season one, Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) and Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) are at the center of the new footage (although most of the cast was on hand for the show's NYCC panel). The trailer teases that a war is coming between Mr. Wednesday's collection of Old Gods and Mr. World's (Crispin Glover) own New Gods. With a return date not officially set, the trailer only offers up a tease of what fans can expect to see what American Gods returns sometime next year.
Syfy brought a brand new teaser trailer for Deadly Class to NYCC and confirmed a January 16, 2019 debut. The footage focuses on Marcus Lopez (Benjamin Wadsworth) as he starts his journey in the school built to train a young generation of assassins. The first teaser for Deadly Class released back in May, followed up by a full trailer at the end of July. This latest trailer continues to tease Marcus' new life and the cast of characters around him, like Master Lin (Benedict Wong) and Saya (Lana Condor).
