Warner Bros. is bringing Aquaman, Justice League, Blade Runner 2049, Ready Player One and more to Comic-Con International in San Diego this year. Warner Bros. has quite a few big blockbuster genre releases planned for the remainder of 2017 as well as throughout 2018, and one of the biggest stages where the studio can show off its upcoming slate is the massive annual convention in San Diego. Last year, Warner Bros. rolled out trailers for The LEGO Batman Movie and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword as well as DC Extended Universe entries Wonder Woman and Justice League.
This year, the studio is bringing its two upcoming DCEU installments as well as two major genre releases: Denis Villeneuve's long-awaited follow up to Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049, and Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ernest Cline's Ready Player One. Now, fans gearing up for SDCC 2017 can take a look at the full lineup for Warner Bros' Hall H presentation.
Deadline is reporting Warner Bros. will hold its presentation on Saturday July 22 at 11am PST in Hall H, and it will be moderated by Chris Hardwick. DCEU stars Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (The Flash) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) will be on hand to promote this year's Justice League as well as 2018's Aquaman. Additionally, Warner Bros. will bring out cast and filmmakers for Blade Runner 2049 and Ready Player One.
For Blade Runner 2049, Harrison Ford will appear alongside co-stars Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Lennie James and Mackenzie Davis. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. is bringing Steven Spielberg himself out to discuss Ready Player One, along with cast members Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, and T.J. Miller, as well as the film's co-screenwriters, Cline and Zak Penn. In addition, Warner Bros. will hold a screening of Annabelle: Creation on Wednesday July 19 Westfield Horton Plaza, which will be followed by a Q&A with director David F. Sandberg and co-stars Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson and Anthony LaPaglia.
Fellow Warner Bros' film, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, has its own panel Thursday evening July 20 at 6:45pm in Room 6A with voice actors/stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña and Zach Woods and producer Dan Lin. Plus, New Line's adaptation of Stephen King's IT will receive a VR experience at the Interactive Zone across from Petco Park.
In terms of what Warner Bros. will showcase during their Hall H presentation, rumor has it there will be an Aquaman teaser; though that's so far unconfirmed, it falls in line with the studio revealing the first teaser for Justice League during last year's SDCC. Additionally, it seems likely Warner Bros. will unveil a new trailer for Justice League, which has so far only received the SDCC 2016 teaser and the film's first full trailer. Blade Runner 2049 may debut a new trailer as well, while Ready Player One may premiere first look footage in the form of a teaser or trailer.
As for any other news, Warner Bros. may announce a new director for The Flash movie - which is currently without a director and release date - or which DC film they plan to release following Aquaman in December 2018. Of course, since Joss Whedon isn't attending Comic-Con, it seems unlikely there will be any Batgirl news, but perhaps the studio will offer an update on another of their announced DCEU films. That said, this is all speculation for now, since Warner Bros. will no doubt keep their exact plans for Hall H a secret until the presentation begins. Still, considering the films Warner Bros. is bringing to Comic-Con, Hall H attendees are in for some exciting things to kick off the Saturday of SDCC.
