Preview night with The Joker

San Diego International Comic-Con kicked off Wednesday with preview night. It was definitely the busiest preview we've seen so far. 

Some cosplayers started Comic-Con in full costume, and more impressive cosplay has been popping up as the convention progresses. This gallery first went live on July 19 and will be updated throughout the convention. 

Let's start with this great Joker from Suicide Squad.
