— -- UPDATE: The official "Suicide Squad" trailer just went live. You can watch it below.

In case you were otherwise occupied this weekend or maybe just out of the country, Comic-Con 2015 may have been the best year ever for the San Diego, California, comic book convention.

It's an understatement to say a lot happened, but that's the best way to put it. We got an extended, epic look at "Batman v Superman," Jared Leto made his first video appearance as the Joker in "Suicide Squad" and Marvel brought its A-game, as well, with "Deadpool," "X-Men" and so many other goodies for die-hard fans. And let's not forget "Star Wars."

Here's a quick rundown:

"Suicide Squad" - August 5, 2016

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie may have ended up stealing the show in the first "Suicide Squad" trailer. Leto, who is set to play the Joker, is seen at the end of the clip, saying a creepy line that basically trended all weekend -- "Oh, I'm not going to kill you ... I'm just going to hurt ya really, really bad.”

We also see Robbie as Harley Quinn, part of the "worst of the worst," trapped in a cage, hanging upside down when she first appears in the clip. Later on, she's in a fancy sports car, racing with the Joker himself, while Batman dangles on the roof, trying to take them down.

"I want to assemble a task force of the most dangerous people on the planet," Viola Davis' Amanda Waller says in the clip.

"They are bad guys?" asks a government suit.

"Exactly," Waller says.

"Batman v Superman" - March 25, 2016

A new trailer debuted Saturday that revealed why Ben Affleck's Dark Knight hates the Man of Steel so much. In the clip, Superman's battle with General Zod in the first movie from 2013 destroyed Wayne Towers and may have killed some of his loved ones.

Their upcoming battle in 2016 will be one to watch for sure. We also got our first look at Kryptonite, Lex Luthor and Wonder Woman. The footage is a must watch.

"Star Wars" - Dec. 18, 2015

Harrison Ford stepped out to a standing ovation Friday night and said he's healthy after his plane crash, adding that being back as Han Solo "felt great."

In addition, a behind-the-scenes, three-minute video excited fans with explosions, robots and flying space crafts.

"X-Men: Apocalypse" - May 27, 2016

Oscar Isaac's evil "X-Men" villain Apocalypse also made his first appearance in a trailer shown only in San Diego.

In the clip for the latest mutant movie, Sophie Turner's young Jean Grey sees the end of the world.

"I could feel all this death," she says.

When we get our first glimpse of the very first mutant born thousands of years ago -- Apocalypse -- he's hooded and says, "I've been called many things over many lifetimes ... From the ashes of their world, we'll build a better one."

In short, he's not looking to play nice.

He then removes his hood to reveal the villain that scares even Professor X.

"He can control all of us," the professor says. "I've never felt power like this before."

"Deadpool" - Feb. 12, 2016

Ryan Reynolds is back as the wise-cracking assassin and the trailer did not disappoint. In the footage, Reynolds becomes Deadpool because he has cancer riddled throughout his body. He then joins a secret society to gain abilities and be with his family.

He also looks to joke about his past failure as Green Lantern, saying "Please don't make the super suit green."

Then, Deadpool breaks into action, killing bad guys, while dropping witty one-liners.

DMX's "X Gon' Give It To Ya" plays in the background right before Deadpool talks to the audience (he's one of the only comic book characters to break this fourth wall and talk to readers), then laughs about his bad appearance and why he always wears a mask. It's also going to be R-rated with cursing, which is not the norm in comic book films.

"Wolverine" - March 3, 2017

The final run for Hugh Jackman will apparently be based on a cult Wolverine story, "Old Man Logan."

“I’ve got three words for you guys: old man Logan. That’s all I’m saying. Read into it what you will," he said at the "X-Men" panel, according to the AV Club.

"Old Man Logan" is a 2008 story set in the future, where he has a family, but lives in a dystopian society and has become the animal once again.

Jackman also gave a heartfelt goodbye to fans after starring as Wolverine for more than 15 years.

"One last time. … [And] in this movie that we are going to make, it’s going to be directed by Jim Mangold, the great Jim Mangold. … And I can tell you, the people who are in this room, the fans, in this room, it’s going to be the best one yet for you guys," he said, according to Cinema Blend.
