There are a whole host of DC panels at SDCC 2019, covering everything from the Arrowverse to the comics. Warner Bros. is skipping this year's San Diego Comic-Con for the first time in 20 years, meaning there'll be no DC Films Hall H panel. That means the likes of Joker, Bird of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984 won't be present at SDCC 2019.
That doesn't mean DC won't be well-represented at SDCC 2019, though. As always, there are a number of dedicated Arrowverse panels at Comic-Con 2019, as well as world exclusives of everything from Batwoman and Pennyworth to upcoming DC animated movies. What's more, the comic book division is taking its chance to shine, with dedicated panels for some of DC's best writers and artists.
So San Diego Comic-Con 2019 is definitely not one to miss for DC lovers. If you're trying to put together your schedule, here are all the key times and dates. And if you're not able to head to Comic-Con 2019, rest assured, we'll be covering all the news as it breaks.
