Should DC Extended Universe Footage Be Shown at Comic Con 2016?


San Diego Comic Con 2016 is only weeks away and with that it is expected that we will see some new footage from films and television shows currently filming. It’s also Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary, hence it’s likely we will see more of a Wonder Woman themed panels or areas within the convention.

Wonder Woman has  finished filming, with post-production taking place at the moment, so chances are there is more than enough footage scored and edited properly that we can see the footage début this year. The question now is, should Warner Bros. show any footage?

Last year there was some major controversy when a teaser for Suicide Squad was released for those who paid their way into the convention and then it was leaked. This forced Warner Bros. to officially release the footage online in the hopes that the poor quality of the leaked footage would stop being shared. A similar incident happened in 2015 with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with the teaser being leaked, although that footage was never officially released.

By not giving fans new footage it could certainly damage Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s reputation for giving fans what they want. But however Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment need to protect their property and fans don’t seem to understand the footage is not meant for everyone as they feel entitled to show it, even if it’s not okay.

What do you think will happen? Will Warner Bros. take the risk and show more footage or will they take better precautions. They could have fans give their phones at the door and sign something to make sure no recording devices will be allowed in the room or risk being kicked out of the convention completely.

While personally think the former will be done, the latter should happen. There should be better ways that both sides can be pleased.

This is my own personal opinion and doesn’t reflect those of everyone here at
