Are you Team Batman or Team Superman? Well, it doesn't really matter since they're going to be on the same team now, or at least, that's what the first-ever footage of Justic League released last week at the San Diego Comic Conference (SDCC), a.k.a the biggest pop culture event of the year, would like to make us believe. It was during this event last year that the full-length trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was revealed, and this year SDCC did not disappoint, by releasing back-to-back trailers and teasers of some of the hotly anticipated movies of 2016-2017. Check out these six trailers that got the whole world buzzing with excitement:

This year, the long awaited sequel is coming and will follow a bunch of teens who went back to the black forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries of the disappearance of Heather from the first movie.
