The San Diego Comic-Con 2018 panels for Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam!, and Aquaman are now online for all to see. In the lead up to SDCC, Warner Bros. and DC appeared poised to be the big winners. They were scheduled to bring all three of their currently dated movies in their shared universe, and they did exactly that. While WB opened with some of their other upcoming blockbusters, DC was saved for last.
The DC section of WB's panel consisted of the filmmakers and cast members for each movie coming out on the big Hall H stage. They discussed their upcoming films, debuted exclusive footage, and even helped debut what looks to be the universe's official title: Worlds of DC.
While quotes and official footage for each of the films have come online since the panels happened, the experience of being in the room is something only a few thousand people get to experience. Seeing the panels afterward doesn't completely replicate that feeling, but it at least offers a glimpse of the energy and excitement Hall H is typically filled with. Thanks to We Live Entertainment, the full panels (minus actual footage from the films) for the three DC films are now online. The panel for Wonder Woman 1984 is featured at the top of this article, but below is where fans can find the ones for Shazam! and Aquaman.
For anyone not able to be in Hall H, these videos are as close as they'll come to experiencing these panels in their entirety. Even though the most exciting parts of them - that being the exclusive Hall H footage - can't be seen, it only further incentivizes people to attend in future years. Going beyond that though, the enthusiasm expressed by those involved and the fans in the audience can still be felt through the screen, to amp up the hype for each film even more.
Most of what isn't shown in these videos can still be seen online, and if not can be learned about through footage descriptions. Wonder Woman 1984 debuted exclusive footage for the audience that featured Gal Gadot in a brighter suit as she strolled through a mall. Shazam! didn't hold anything just for those in attendance as they (surprisingly) released the film's first trailer online for everyone to see. Aquaman did both though. They released the official first trailer online and at SDCC, but also showed a second, extended trailer that was even better than the first. New trailers for Aquaman and Shazam will be released in the coming months too, but the first footage to officially be released for Wonder Woman 1984 will likely wait until 2019 to launch. So, seeing them in this panel may be the closest thing to marketing for the sequel fans will see for quite some time.
