The ultimate nerd central in San Diego welcomed thousands and thousands of fans, cosplayers and every single movie and TV star there is. After a week or so, it’s all over (boo!) but we can at least live on the fuel that it gave us for some time.

Apart from gifting us the time of our lives, Comic-Con 2014 also gifted us with some major trailers, first glance posters, rock hard abs, announcements and news on further progress of our favorite movies and TV shows.

The thing that everyone seems to have an opinion on is the revelation of the new Wonder Woman, who will appear in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie!

Fans had some reservations due to the fact that DC never really had faith in Wonder Woman, or any other female (super)hero for that matter. Why, we don’t know, we can only hope for a better future for the female badass hero.

The new Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) looks great and tough and confident, but also kind of familiar… Oh, that’s right, she looks like Xena! Apart from that, the poster restored a bit of faith in the new project and we can only hope that Gal Gadot can talk the talk like she walks the walk.

“True Blood” seems to have abandoned its “true to the end” motto (and hashtag, for that matter) in yet another season. At least this time it’s the final season so there won’t be any more disappointment. Although the fans still love the show and the cast, the plot is just… sad, and not in the way that the producers and directors intended.

The trailer shows the show as soulless, even though there’s tragedy all around Bon Temps: important characters dying, revenge, sickness…

The epic romance between Bill and Sookie is the biggest and most important thing that’s going on and that really just makes the show nothing more than a telenovela… With fangs.

The trailer for the new “Mad Max: Fury Road” did not disappoint! It definitely stole the spotlight from all the other trailers and has become the IT movie that we’re all impatiently waiting for.

The best thing about it is the lack of computer-assisted special effects. It seems that the legendary trilogy will live on for future generations.

A few more shows and movies that stood out at Comic-Con were “Sleepy Hollow,” “The Avengers,” and of course, “The Walking Dead” and “Game of Thrones.” Some stars, like Massie Williams and Daniel Radcliffe, walked among the people freely in masks, just enjoying their time and not getting recognized. Ah, copsplaying makes everyone’s wishes come true. Long live Comic-Con!
