The last couple of years Warner Bros. has put on incredibly entertaining Comic-Con panel events for their films. The studio has announced that this year they will be bringing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, and Jupiter Ascending to the massive geek convention. The studio announced that the panel will take place on Saturday, July 26th.
You may have noticed that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not a part of the lineup, which is crazy to me! The only thing I can think is that the studio will surprise fans with Zack Snyder, who will show us some footage. I'll be shocked if they don't show anything — this is the crowd that's going to want to see it!
Director Peter Jackson will be there to talk about the third and final installment in The Hobbit franchise. Director George Miller will also be in attendance to show off the first footage from Mad Max, which stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. The studio also plans on showing off some new footage from the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending, which no one seems to really care about.
Warner Bros. will also host a fan screening of their upcoming tornado thriller Into the Storm, directed by Steven Quale. The screening will take place on Wednesday, July 23th at 10 p.m. at the Gaslamp Theatre.
DC Entertainment will also be celebrating Batman’s 75th year with all-star panel appearances by Batman talent as well as a rare display at the DC Entertainment booth of some of the famous costumes from the films worn by actors such as Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, and Michael Keaton.
