San Diego Comic-Con is just weeks away and on Monday, both Warner Bros. and FX announced their plans for the 50th annual pop-culture convention with more announcements expected as the event draws closer.
Warner Bros. is bringing 16 total series to Comic-Con, including scripted live-action shows Arrow, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Doom Patrol, The Flash, Legacies, Pennyworth, Riverdale (pictured in large photo above), Supergirl, Supernatural (pictured in small photo above), Titans and Veronica Mars. It’s also bringing four animated series in DC Super Hero Girls, Harley Quinn, Teen Titans GO! and Young Justice: Outsiders, as well as offerings from its acquired digital service Rooster Teeth.
This will be the last Comic-Con for the concluding Arrow and Supernatural. Two shows that have had major presences at Comic-Con in past year — Game of Thrones and The Big Bang Theory — both wrapped up this season, but while Game of Thrones is expected to host its final panel at the convention, The Big Bang Theory concluded its Comic-Con run with its series finale.
On the flip side,Warner Bros. will host several world-premiere screenings at the show, including The CW’s Batwoman, starring Ruby Rose, and Epix’s Pennyworth, which tells the origin story of Bruce Wayne’s valet. Both of those shows will air during Warner Bros.’ annual preview-night event on Wednesday, July 17, in Ballroom 20 at the San Diego Convention Center. Those shows will be joined by Fox’s dramatic thriller, Prodigal Son, starring Tom Payne and Michael Sheen; the world premiere of DC Universe’s animated Harley Quinn; and a never-before-seen episode of Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go!
Both Harley Quinn and Teen Titans Go! will be aired again during both of those shows’ dedicated panels.
On Friday, WB will air the first episode of Hulu’s reboot of Veronica Mars, starring Kristen Bell, during the show’s panel.
Saturday night is DC Universe night, and Warner Bros. is hosting an evening of sneak peeks, first looks and breaking news for fans of Titans, Doom Patrol, the second half of Young Justice: Outsiders and the upcoming animated comedy series Harley Quinn during a special two-hour event.
Meanwhile, FX Networks is bringing animated spy send-up Archer, vampire parody What We Do in the Shadows and Sons of Anarchy sequel Mayans M.C. to the Con, with panels on Friday for Archer, Saturday for Shadows and Sunday for Mayans.
FX also usually has an outdoor activation in San Diego, but that has not been announced yet.
San Diego Comic-Con 2019 takes place July 18-21, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center and surrounding downtown area.
