New York Comic Con is fast approaching and I cannot wait. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be hosting two panels that have definitely piqued my interest. They include the world premiere of Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, the next DC Universe movie, along with a 20th anniversary celebration of Batman Beyond. Both will be held at NYCC’s Main Stage.

Check out the details below:

Prepare for a thrilling quest packed with brutal battles, mysterious mythology and endless wonder! See the film, then stay for an entertaining panel discussion with stars and filmmakers. Rosario Dawson (Jane the Virgin, Rent, Luke Cage) returns as the voice of Wonder Woman for the sixth time, leading a sensational Wonder Woman: Bloodlines voicecast that includes Jeffrey Donovan (Fargo, Burn Notice) as Steve Trevor, Marie Avgeropoulos(The 100) as Silver Swan, Adrienne C.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Batman Beyond won two Emmy Awards and three Annie Awards as it captured the imaginations of a new generation of Batman fans, setting new standards for super hero storytelling with innovative designs, outstanding voice acting and an intriguing approach to DC’s iconic characters and stories. The series also spawned an acclaimed animated film, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker.

I’ve never had much luck getting into the Main Stage panels, but I may have to try a little harder this year for that Batman Beyond panel. It’s one of my all-time favorite TV shows, let alone super hero cartoons, so I’ll have to see what I can do.
