While Warner Bros. Pictures will be taking the year off from its annual presentation at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Warner Bros. Television — which is sort of a separate company thanks to WarnerMedia’s arcane corporate structure — will still be at Comic-Con in full force. It sort of has to be with Supernatural and Arrow making their last stands this upcoming television season. Additionally, it has to introduce Batwoman to the Ballroom 20 crowd and, maybe, get a few more people sign up for DC Universe and watch Titans.
It all begins with the traditional preview night screenings. Starting at 6pm in Ballroom 20, WBTV will presents episodes of Batwoman, Pennyworth, Prodigal Son, Harley Quinn and Teen Titans GO! That’s a pretty full night for anyone interested in comic book television. Prodigal Son, the lone non-comic book show, stars Tom Payne as Malcolm Bright, a profiler whose father is a convicted serial killer played by Good Omens‘ Michael Sheen. This show was meant to be Finn Jones’s Iron Fist follow-up. He was replaced by Payne after the first table read.
Thursday, July 18th, will feature a Teen Titans GO! panel and Friday will feature presentations on the revived Veronica Mars, the ongoing DC Super Hero Girls animated series, The CW’s Legacies, and Pennyworth.
Saturday, July 20th, is, of course, the big day for WBTV with its superhero shows taking over Ballroom 20 most of the day. It all begins with Batwoman‘s first Comic-Con panel at 10:30am, followed by the final Arrow panel at 3:30pm, Supergirl at 4:15, Black Lightning at 5pm, and The Flash at 5:45. Expect all the casts and creative teams of those shows to skillfully avoid questions about the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. Additionally, a DC Universe “sneak peak” event will occur over in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront at 7pm. We expect to see a few glimpses of Titans‘s second season and maybe even footage from Stargirl emerge from that panel.
On Sunday, July 21st, the company moves into Hall H for the final Supernatural panel ever. Well, at least until the inevitable reunion panel five years from now. That starts at 10:30am and will be immediately followed by a Riverdale presentation at 11:45am. Here’s the full calendar of WBTV events at Comic-Con for your convenience:
