San Diego Comic-Con doesn’t officially kick off until Thursday, but the annual plague of previews, trailers, videos, pre-lers, trailviews, vidlers, and traileos vying to go viral has already arrived. And as it does every year, it’s brought along a nasty secondary infection of blog posts presenting those same videos to people who aren’t at San Diego Comic-Con.
