DC and parent company Warner Bros. Discovery are headed to New York Comic Con in a big way, today announcing plans for multiple panels, guests, and even a chance for fans at the show to visit S.T.A.R. Labs itself. This seems to be the plans following its decision not to run DC FanDome this year.
Both HBO Max’s Doom Patrol and Titans will have their own Sunday afternoon panels with cast members including Brendan Fraser, Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Joivan Wade, and Michelle Gomez, as well as Brenton Thwaites, and Titans showrunner Greg Walker, to talk about the upcoming seasons of both series.
Additionally, fans will get a chance to see the first episode of the third season of Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler, with series stars Jack Bannon and Ben Aldridge along with executive producers Bruno Heller and John Stephens in attendance to answer questions afterwards, and two previously unseen episodes of the Cartoon Network series Batwheels will also be screened at the show.
In terms of comics, there are a number of panels across the entire show, including the Explore the DC Multiverse panel on Thursday, the Jim Lee & Friends panel on Friday — remember, this was the panel where Batman/Spawn was announced at San Diego Comic-Con this summer — and panels for Superman and Batman respectively on Saturday and Sunday.
If that’s not enough DC for fans, there’s also a panel for the animated movie Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons on Friday afternoon, a panel for Batman: The Audio Adventures on Friday, and all show long, a Harley Quinn 30th Anniversary pop-up exhibit and a S.T.A.R. Labs booth on the show floor (at Booth #1001) modeled after the science getaway from HBO Max’s Titans show. DC is also promising more information, and “additional announcements” about the company’s presence at the show, in the upcoming weeks.
New York Comic Con runs October 6 through 9 in the Javits Center.
DC had quite the presence at San Diego Comic-Con in general this year beyond simply announcing Batman/Spawn; why not go back and look at our coverage from the show to remind yourself of what happened when?
