Showing a handful of fans at comic-con does not equate to officially releasing it for MILLIONS to see. It's an unfinished product that may not look like that in the final film, it does not make business sense to officially release it. There is a reason companies do not put out test footage...because it is test footage, i.e. a concept at best. Releasing it and giving millions and possibly false impression of how the movie will be WOULD cause negative buzz after the final product is shown and it's nothing like a lot of people were expecting. This is not hard stuff to grasp.
