Will there be any sneak peeks of highly anticipated movies coming out later this year?!

Funny you should ask! Chris Evans, Captain America himself, will show up to offer fans a little taste of Captain America: Civil War a few weeks before its May 6 release. Three trailers have teased the epic Cap vs. Iron Man battle already: The first came out in November, the second during the Super Bowl in February, and the third — the only one to include an appearance of Tom Holland as Spider-Man — hit the internet in March.

Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, and Cara Delevingne will be there to debut some new footage from Suicide Squad, in which they play DC Comics baddies Deadshot, The Joker, Harley Quinn, and Enchantress, respectively. Suicide Squad hits theaters Aug. 5; the first teaser was illegally leaked (and then officially released) after Comic-Con last summer, and a full trailer debuted in January.

Eddie Redmayne will be on hand to unveil a sneak peek of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the next entry in the cinematic world of Harry Potter. Redmayne plays noted magizoologist Newt Scamander in the J.K. Rowling-scripted prequel, which moves the magic to New York City in the 1920s. The first trailer arrived in December, and Fantastic Beasts will hit theaters Nov. 18.
