Though better known for its cosplay and comic book ties, New York Comic Con has become as important a place to debut new trailers as Comic-Con International: San Diego. And considering the stable of properties showing off new material over the weekend, the two conventions may be equal in their media blitzes.
Besides the Wednesday night teases of DC Universe’s Titans and Harley Quinn, fans are already eagerly anticipating previews for shows like Marvel’s Daredevil, Good Omens, The Tick, The Boys, American Gods, and more. On the movie front, 2019’s Hellboy will be the trailer to beat. Not that possible trailer for Mortal Engines and How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World won’t try. We’ll keep adding trailers as they appear and New York Comic Con continues.
Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) must join forces to help Raven (Teagan Croft) face an unimaginable terror. Along the way, they’ll probably become a team. Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly also appear as Hawk & Dove, a superhero duo affiliated with the Teen Titans back in the comics.

Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox) may no longer have any interest in being Matt Murdoch, but someone else has an interest in being Daredevil.

Or his greatest foe may be FBI Agent Benjamin Poindexter (Wilson Bethel), a character featured in the above second trailer for the season. Based on legendary Daredevil nemesis Bullseye, Dex appears to be the man Fisk finds to wear the Daredevil armor. But will the Kingpin’s plan lead to something — and someone — worse than Daredevil?
