DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. have descended on San Diego with some of the biggest movie stars, greatest heroes, baddest villains and most in-demand artists of the comic universe, making the DC booth one of the hottest destinations at Comic-Con. Click here for the full schedule, and here are some highlights of what fans can expect:
Earlier this week, we reported on Suicide Squad adding virtual reality to the film's pre-release buzz. On Saturday, fans can meet and get autographs from the cast of the film as the megastars when they make their appearance at the DC booth beginning at 1:15 p.m. PT. Cast members will include Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Will Smith (Deadshot), Jared Leto (The Joker), Joel Kinnaman (Col. Rick Flag), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Scott Eastwood (Lieutenant GQ Edwards), Cara Delvingne (Enchantress), Adam Beach (Slipknot) and Karen Fukuhara (Katana) -- with a lineup like that, be sure to line up early.
That experience will follow Friday's "Suicide Squad: Most Wanted" panel, where the Harley Quinn team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner will be joined by artist Mauricet (Harley and Her Gang of Harleys), along with writer Rob Williams and legendary artist Jim Lee, the team bringing fans new adventures of these villains-turned-heroes in Suicide Squad: Rebirth, on sale August 3.
Comic-Con will serve as a launch pad for the year-long 75th anniversary celebration of Wonder Woman. On Saturday, fans will be treated to some of the creative talent at the heart of the superhero's past, present and future, along with a few surprise guests at the “Wonder Woman 75” panel. Then, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, will accompany her co-stars Chris Pine (Capt. Steve Trevor) and Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta) to the DC booth for an autograph session, beginning at 12:15 p.m. PT.
Because no comic book convention is complete without cosplay, each day the DC booth will host an awesome cosplay get-together: DC Comics Bombshells (Today); Suicide Squad "Squad Up" (Friday); Wonder Woman (Saturday); and DC Super Hero Girls (Sunday).
