Warner Bros in Hall H

Summer is almost here, which means San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner. And this year’s Comic-Con has a surprise in store. Or rather, not in store: Warner Bros. won’t be bringing anything to the fabled Hall H this year. The studio could’ve easily had panels relating to Wonder Woman 1984Joker and even Matt Reeves’s The Batman. Instead, they’re sitting this one out. In fact, the only WB movie to have any sort of representation at SDCC in 2019 will be It Chapter Two.

Demolition Man Comic-Con

In 1993, Warner Bros. released Demolition Man, a sci-fi action film that starred Sylvester Stallone as a present day cop who’s cryogenically frozen until being thawed out in the future to apprehend his greatest nemesis. It’s somehow terrible and wonderful at the same time.

It’s been 25 years since the film came out, and to celebrate, Warner Bros. is planning a Demolition Man Comic-Con pop-up at next month’s convention in San Diego. And if you’ve seen the movie, you probably know where this is going: yep, Taco Bell is going to be involved. Read More »
