The full DC Comics portion of Warner Bros' Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 has emerged online. The studio officially launched the DC Extended Universe last year with Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then followed up that film with David Ayer's Suicide Squad later that summer and Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman earlier this year. Now, they'll be uniting the world's finest heroes -- Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) -- in Snyder's Justice League this fall.
This past weekend, the studio made their annual appearance at San Diego Comic-Con where they showcased their most anticipated upcoming movies, such as Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner: 2049 and Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, though their main event focused entirely around their DCEU lineup, namely Justice League and James Wan's Aquaman. Those two movies are next on the docket, with the former arriving this November and the latter arriving next December (so there's still time for WB to promote that movie next year), which is why those were the most heavily promoted.

Warner Bros. released their second Justice League trailer online following the panel on Saturday, though the exclusive Aquaman footage they screened likely won't ever release. However, despite not being able to see that, people can now watch the full DC Comics portion of the panel that includes the cast -- Affleck, Miller, Gadot, Fisher, and Momoa -- discussing the film and answering questions. You can watch the video in the section above, which comes from the YouTube channel Flicks and the City.
In the video, people can see Affleck's now-extensively reported response to last week's report about him exiting his Batman role following the release Matt Reeves' The Batman, though that's something that he vehemently denied during the panel, and then again during press interviews. Unfortunately, what people cannot see are all the other reveals that came before the Justice League cast (sans Henry Cavill, who was busy filming Mission: Impossible 6) took the stage.
To open the DCEU portion of the panel, Warners showed new logos for their upcoming movies, which included the surprising reveal that The Flash movie will actually be titled Flashpoint, and presumably based on the 2011 comic book series of the same name. Furthermore, the grand logo they unveiled also revealed that the upcoming Green Lantern Corps film will include both Hal Jordan (the second Lantern) and John Stewart (the fourth Lantern). While all of these announcements and reveals, which have been reported by now, aren't showcased in the above video, that doesn't mean watching the Justice League cast talk about the film and answer fan questions isn't enjoyable.
