San Diego Comic Con kicked off today, meaning that lines have already started to get inside the famous Hall H. It’s the host of the biggest panels at the San Diego Convention Center this weekend, including the highly anticipated Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios panels.
In recent years, the major Hollywood studios have toned down their presence, deciding against making a big push at the convention. Paramount, Universal and Sony will not be there. It’s especially surprising for Sony, since SDCC could give them a good opportunity to talk about the Venom movie.
Disney will also only be represented by the Marvel Studios panel. That’s not surprising since Star Wars had its own convention in April. The company also hosted its own D23 convention just last week.
In fact, the only studio with a huge presence this year is Warner Bros. The studio has a huge panel planned for Saturday morning, where it will celebrate the success of Wonder Woman and plans to outline the rest of the DC Extended Universe. It’s expected that a Justice League trailer will be shown.
Hall H panels are not live streamed, but there are other events being streamed from the convention.
Here’s a look at the schedule for Hall H. All times are Pacific.
Thursday, July 20
11:00 a.m.: Kingsman: The Secret Circle – Legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons will join actors Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal and screenwriter Jane Goldman to discuss 20th Century Fox’s Kingsman sequel. This is 20th Century Fox’s only movie panel, so don’t expect much news about the X-Men franchise unless there’s a big surprise.
3:15 p.m.: Netflix Films: Bright and Death Note – Netflix will show off two high-profile movies. Director David Ayer and stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Lucy Fry, Noomi Repace and Edgar Ramirez will show off the trailer for Bright. The cast and crew from Death Note, based on the manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, will also be highlighted.
Saturday, July 22
The big panels on Friday focus on television, including The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Marvel’s The Defenders. Saturday is when film takes over.
11:30 a.m.: Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation – Running a monster two hours, the Warner Bros. panel will include looks at the DC Extended Universe films, including Justice League and Aquaman. Blade Runner 2049 will also take up a significant chunk of the panel, with Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and others attending the panel. Steven Spielberg will also show off scenes from Ready Player One, his adaptation of the beloved Ernest Cline novel.
5:30 p.m.: Marvel Studios – Marvel’s panel will “only” run 90 minutes. However, there will be a lot for the studio to unpack. The Avengers: Infinity War footage shown at D23 will likely be screened, but still won’t be released online later. Thor: Ragnarok could use another trailer, and that is expected to be unveiled. Black Panther, which comes out before Infinity War next year, will also be featured. Hopefully more Marvel movies are announced. It would also be nice to get an update on Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
Hall H will also feature more TV panels, including Supernatural, The Last Ship and Doctor Who.
