Saturday is traditionally the biggest day at San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s easy to see why. Hall H is jumping and the biggest names in film, TV and comics are all in attendance. This year, DC Entertainment will completely take over Hall H at night as Stephen Amell hosts a three-hour look at our fall TV offerings, including the World Premiere of Gotham.
As Comic-Con enters its second full day, the weekend finally begins. Fans by the thousands will pass through the DC Entertainment booth over the next few days, enjoying all of the Batman costumes, products and imagery on display (you saw the hidden Batman v Superman image, right?). Many will line up to get comics signed by Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, John Romita, Jr. and more, or to snap photos with some of the awesome DC Comics cosplayers at the show.
This year, Batman’s stepping out of the shadows…and into the Comic-Con spotlight. With his 75th Anniversary going strong, Batman is a major presence at San Diego Comic-Con. He’s been seen in comics, film, TV, games, toys and clothing, and it’s all represented within the DC Entertainment booth, particularly in the Batman 75th Anniversary montage wall created for the show. Within this wall, you can spot many images of the Dark Knight, both old and in some cases very new.
As in never before seen.
The first day of Comic-Con has arrived and perhaps the biggest question most attendees are facing is where to start. With so much amazing stuff on display, there’s something to be discovered around every turn. Perhaps a panel or two? There are some great DC Comics ones today, such as DC Digital: Download This! and Batman 75: Legends of the Dark Knight, a spectacular Batman anniversary panel featuring Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Scott Snyder and more!
While Comic-Con International: San Diego may officially kick off tomorrow, everyone knows that Wednesday, also known as Preview Night, is the best time to scope out the floor, snagging some of those awesome Comic-Con exclusives as you do. Plus, with WBTV’s Sneak Peek Pilot Screenings taking place in Ballroom 20, there’s plenty to experience. All before the show technically gets started!
Today, thousands of comic shops and bookstores worldwide are celebrating Batman Day. They’re hosting parties, giving away free Batman comics and in some locations, handing out some awesome Batman masks. Based on four distinct Dark Knight-eras, these masks are fun and perfect for a little cell phone photography. And since Batman has shown he’s not above taking an occasional selfie, we’re putting a call out for some BatSelfies!
