If you couldn't make it to San Diego for Comic-Con 2018, it's OK, you still get to join in the sci-fi, fantasy and nerd excitement thanks to the annual tidal wave of trailers and teasers coming straight from Hall H, Ballroom 20 and more. Here are the 41 trailers you should see.

With no Marvel or HBO attending this year, DC led the way at SDCC with first looks at Aquaman and Shazam *and* screening some special Wonder Woman footage for the Hall H crowd. Godzilla and Glass round up some friends for blockbuster team-ups, and comic book-based teen angst gets gritty in Titans and Deadly Class. The Purge, Legacies and Mayans M.C. have spun-off popular series into their own TV shows. And there are some familiar faces, as The Walking Dead, Doctor Who and DC's Arrowverse heroes returning for new seasons.

We'll keep adding more trailers as they explode out of Comic-Con 2018. Enjoy!
