It is being reported that Warner Brothers won’t present a panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con International this year. That means that neither fans in attendance nor those of us sitting home will get any previews of upcoming WB projects, which includes ‘Joker’, ‘Doctor Sleep’, ‘Super Intelligence’, ‘Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)’, ‘Godzilla Vs. Kong’, and ‘Wonder Woman 1984’.
The only Warner Bros. film that will have any presence at SDCC is ‘It: Chapter 2’, which is scheduled to open on September 6, of this year. That movie will be presented during the ScareDiego event.
THIS JUST IN: #ITChapter2 director Andy Muschietti announced that the film will come to ScareDiego at San Diego Comic-Con. Expect new footage & other surprises

Among WB’s other projects that are in the works are the next ‘Fantastic Beasts’, ‘The Suicide Squad’, ‘The Batman’, and sequels to ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Shazam!’, as well as the potential ‘Aquaman’ spinoff ‘The Trench’. However, it doesn’t appear that any of those have begun production, so there wouldn’t be anything to present.
This only pertains to WB’s film division. It’s possible that its various TV shows on The CW and DC Universe (among other outlets) could have presentations.
You may recall that Marvel Studios sat out last year’s SDCC, in order to keep their upcoming projects– ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ (which didn’t have a title yet), and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’– secret. WB’s projects aren’t really a secret, and some of them have fairly low profiles, so they could have used a boost from exposure at SDCC. But WB surely has its reasons.
Marvel Studios has not yet confirmed that it will have a panel, but Kevin Feige has stated that he will divulge more information about upcoming projects this summer, and this is the highest-profile event at which to make such announcements. And SDCC will take place following ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, the last confirmed Marvel film.
Stay tuned for news about Warner Brothers’ upcoming projects.
San Diego Comic-Con International will take place from July 18-21.
