The 2015 International Comic-Con in San Diego will take place a bit earlier in July than recent ‘Cons have, while a handful of powerhouse Hollywood studios are not going to be in attendance (including, Marvel Studios and Paramount). However, lest you assume that SDCC 2015 will be less hectic and jam-packed with panels than previous Comic-Cons, think again; in fact, the ‘hole’ left by studios like Marvel passing on the event has already been filled, by way of a larger presence for upcoming geek television shows (and, undoubtedly, Warner Bros.’ unveiling of its budding DC Cinematic Universe).
The full list of panels for SDCC 2015 – which kicks off with Preview Night on Wednesday, July 8th and runs from July 9th through to Sunday, July 12th – has been officially unveiled, with just over a week to go before the festivities get underway. Obviously, there are more panels than you can shake a stick at, so we’re gone through and highlighted several of the ‘must-see’ events at the ‘Con (along with the official descriptions and time/location for each panel).
SDCC 2015 Thursday Schedule
Thursday is traditionally one of the slower days of the International Comic-Con, and 2015 will be no exception. Nonetheless, there are several panels worth noting; including, Lionsgate’s (final?) Hunger Games movie presentation, as well as Peter Capaldi’s Comic-Con debut for this year’s Doctor Who panel.
