The annual geekfest has dropped some serious gems.

THE ANNUAL COMIC bonanza, Comic Con, took place in San Diego this weekend. There were cosplays, celebrity panels, and an unreal takedown from Bryan Cranston.

But there was also lots of footage and trailers shown from some of this and next year’s most anticipated movies.

1. A Deadpool trailer was shown

The much anticipated Deadpool movie offered a first look at the trash-talking superhero in action. Ryan Reynolds was there to introduce it, and the footage impressed audiences.

The lads were at the convention to promote Victor Frankenstein and had a weird moment against the wall.
