We’re officially less than one month away from San Diego Comic Con’s big return. And now we know more about what one of the biggest studios plans to present to fans this July.
The newly merged Warner Bros. Discovery will shake up its previous structure for SDCC, most notably regarding DC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. – including DC – will not have a presence on the convention floor this year. So, you won’t be able to see any DC superhero movie costumes up close and personal this year. The decision appears to be a safety precaution due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Warner Bros. is still scheduled to host panels for its theatrical division. However, the studio has yet to reveal what movies might make an appearance at SDCC. (DC League of Super-Pets, Black Adam, and Shazam! Fury of the Gods are all due to premiere this year.)
DC films aside, let’s take a look at who’s coming to Comic-Con this year from WB.
Who’s Headed To Hall H?
House of the Dragon – HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones prequel will host a Hall H panel.
The Sandman – Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of the Neil Gaiman comics will hit Hall H with a special video presentation followed by a Q&A with series stars and producers.
Riverdale – The CW’s long-running teen drama will host a panel ahead of its sixth and final season.

Who’s NOT Coming To SDCC?
Outside of Riverdale, Warner Bros. Discovery will not host panels for any of its CW shows. These include The Flash, Superman & Lois, and the upcoming Supernatural prequel series.
And though WB has yet to officially confirm their theatrical panel slate, it seems unlikely the studio will focus on any films scheduled for 2023 and beyond, like Blue Beetle or The Flash.
