San Diego Comic con International will be underway in just a couple weeks, and finally the schedule of presentations and panels have been revealed. After the jump I’ve compiled a listing of all the big movie and television presentations for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and now Sunday.
2016 Comic-Con Schedule: The Big Movies and TV Panels
My thoughts on Saturday: Holy cow. Anything and everything is going on Saturday. Warner Bros. has their secretive panel that will undoubtedly have a Justice League sneak peek, Marvel Studios closes out the big Hall H panels at the end of the day, there are a bunch of other TV shows with panels and all sorts of TV pilot screenings lasting well into the late hours. This is the biggest day for Comic-Con by far.
My thoughts on Friday: Television has officially taken over Comic Con this year. Movie panels are hard to find on Friday, and filmmakers like Brad Bird have been put in some of the smaller rooms.
My thoughts on Thursday: Wow, Thursday is an underwhelming day for Hall H. It might be the weakest non-Sunday in Hall H in the last decade. The only huge movie panel is Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Snowden coming to Comic Con is hurting my brain. And why did Marvel and Netflix put Luke Cage in the smaller Ballroom 20 instead of Hall H?
What follows is a chronological listing of the big movie and television presentations. I’ve excluded most broader panels that don’t focus on a specific show or film and don’t feature filmmakers.
Wednesday, July 20th 2016 [Preview Night]
