Comic-Con 2018 Sneak Peek
Event Preview: July 19 - 22
It’s the biggest convention of the year—four and a half days of sweet, super hero bliss. Whether you’re looking for the biggest movies (like the upcoming Aquaman and Shazam), the most binge-worthy TV shows and comics, the toys and collectibles that you absolutely must have or just the most amazing cosplay on the planet, you’ll find it at San Diego Comic-Con.
WB TV'S CLASS OF 2018
Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) has unveiled its Comic-Con class of 2018, with 15 of the Studio’s fan-favorite series making their way to San Diego this week. Highlights include Comic-Con essentials Arrow, The Big Bang Theory, Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Gotham, Riverdale, Supergirl and Supernatural. The world-premiere pilot screening of mysterious new drama Manifest will also take place at Comic-Con, plus a brand-new episode of WBTV’s fan-favorite series The 100, as well as the world premiere of season two of Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
Since Comic-Con will be packed full of exciting panels for these shows, it seems like the perfect moment to look at everything we know about their upcoming seasons. How will John Constantine stir things up on Legends of Tomorrow? Who are Arrow's Longbow Hunters? Will Jennifer Pierce suit up next season on Black Lightning? We don't have all the answers yet, but here's what we DO know...
Autograph signings for each series will take place in the Warner Bros. booth, #4545, the day of each panel. Note: WBTVG follows Comic-Con’s ticket drawing/wristband distribution procedure for all signings. For information on TV's panel sessions, signings and schedule of events, click here.
