Warner Bros. TV announces their entire schedule of panels for San Diego Comic-Con 2017, including new series Black Lightning and Krypton. As superhero properties - particularly large-scale cinematic universes - have grown in popularity over the last two decades, the number of television series based on comic book characters has grown exponentially as well, with a number of those series coming from Warner Bros' TV branch since the studio owns the rights to DC Comics' catalogue of heroes. The CW has the largest superhero shared universe on TV with the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl - and soon to be joined by Black Lightning.
However, WB TV also produces shows like Fox's Gotham and Lucifer, Syfy's upcoming Superman prequel Krypton, The CW's adaptation of Vertigo property iZombie and the non-DC comic-based series Riverdale, plus a host of animated superhero shows. WB is also responsible for plenty of non-superhero shows that still fall into the sci-fi and fantasy realms, including The CW's The 100 and Supernatural. Now, with Comic-Con International in San Diego less than a month away, WB TV has rolled out its schedule for the massive nerd event.
Warner Bros. TV released a new video on YouTube [above] that reveals their entire lineup of panels for SDCC 2017 - using all sorts of playful puppies dressed in show-related costumes to present the information in an incredibly fun way. WB TV has a number of panels across all four days of SDCC, Thursday July 20 - Sunday July 23, but here are the panels to make note of (all times are in PT):
iZombie: Friday, July 21 - 11:15am in Ballroom 20
The 100: Friday, July 21 - 12:30pm in Ballroom 20
Riverdale: Saturday, July 22 - 11:00am in Ballroom 20
Krypton: Saturday, July 22 - 1:15pm in Indigo Ballroom
Lucifer: Saturday, July 22 - 1:50pm in Indigo Ballroom
Gotham: Saturday, July 22 - 2:50pm in Indigo Ballroom
Supergirl: Saturday, July 22 - 3:30pm in Ballroom 20
Legends of Tomorrow: Saturday, July 22 - 4:10pm in Ballroom 20
Black Lightning: Saturday, July 22 - 4:50pm in Ballroom 20
The Flash: Saturday, July 22 - 5:10pm in Ballroom 20
Arrow: Saturday, July 22 - 5:50pm in Ballroom 20
Supernatural: Sunday, July 23 - 10:30am in Hall H
As in previous years, WB TV has a large presence on Saturday of SDCC, which is the busiest day of the annual event since many of the major movie studios hold Hall H presentations that day. Marvel Studios is expected for SDCC 2017, with their panel presumably scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Another comic book property confirmed to host a panel at SDCC is FX's Legion, and while Marvel TV hasn't announced their official schedule, it's likely the studio will bring The Defenders and The Punisher - two Netflix series expected to roll out later this year - as well as their ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans.
Of course, considering all the panels and events going on during SDCC, it's impossible for attendees to attending everything. But, Warner Bros. Television is bringing a wide variety of its most popular genre series that will no doubt entice fans of comic book superheroes and sci-fi dramas alike. And, as we draw closer to the kick off of SDCC next month, expect even more movie and TV studios to announce which properties they're bringing to one of the biggest events in the entertainment industry.
