Saturday is here, and it's what DC fans have been waiting the entirety of San Diego Comic-Con 2018 for. With Marvel's presence at Comic-Con being more subdued than in previous years, it's Warner Bros. and DC's time so shine, and they're coming in with three major films on the horizon.

Since Warner Bros. just concluded their Hall H presentation, let's run through what they announced. If you want to know what the rest of Saturday has in store, keep scrolling.

The biggest trailer of the day was for Aquaman, which finally gave us an in-depth look at director James Wan's take on the (sometimes maligned) character.

We also got a look at the lighthearted Shazam, coming next spring.

And giant monsters fans can rest assured Godzilla: King of the Monsters ups the ante after 2014's Godzilla.

Warner Bros. also showed off the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Beyond what Warner Bros. revealed, if traditional comic heroes are your jam, then Saturday at SDCC 2018 is the day for you. It's not all Aquaman and Shazam, there are presentations on Black Lightning, Krypton, Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and so much more.

And when you get tired of all the new announcements, you can wrap it up by watching Deadpool 2 in the evening. Truly, the perfect end to a perfect day.
