SDCC 2019: Friday & Saturday Panel Schedule Released
Comic-Con International has revealed the full Friday and Saturday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2019. The convention is the biggest and most important event in the geek calendar, with tens of thousands turning out to see what the various studios, networks, and publishers have to offer. Movie studios like Sony, Universal, and Warner Bros. are all skipping the event this year, but there will still be plenty of panels, presentations, and footage of upcoming releases to keep fans excited over the coming months.
The event will officially open with its Preview Night on Wednesday, which will feature premiere screenings for the first episodes of the upcoming DC adaptations Batwoman and Pennyworth. The former is scheduled to air on The CW as part of the Arrowverse, while the latter will air as a standalone series on EPIX. Agents of SHIELD will also be present, hosting its first-ever Hall H panel on Thursday. Disney will be hosting panels for the recently-acquired live-action Fox TV shows. Even Godzilla will be in attendance. Both Friday and Saturday, however, will feature a huge portion of the panels fans are truly eager to sit in on.
Friday will kick off with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely discussing the hugely successful Avengers: Endgame. The panel will begin at 10:00 am (PST, of course) and will take place in the illustrious Hall H. Fans will also be able to check out the World Premiere of the upcoming Veronica Mars revival at 11:30 am in Ballroom 20. With creator Rob Thomas and various cast-members present, fans will be able to watch the first of the eight-part series and ask any questions they have. A little later in the day, the culmination of the MCU thus far will be further reflected upon by its co-directors, The Russo Brothers. That particular panel will take place at 11:50 am, in Hall H. Rick and Morty will also make a highly-anticipated return at 1:00 pm in the Indigo Ballroom. Seth Rogen will be bringing two of his shows to proceedings. A panel for The Boys will take place at 3:30 pm in Ballroom 20. Another of the year’s epic conclusions will also be looked back on, with Game of Thrones returning for a final SDCC panel. It will be held in Hall H at 5:30 pm, with numerous members of the cast also in attendance. Rogen’s second show, Preacher, meanwhile, will be held in Hall H at 7:00 pm.
Saturday will give fans just as much to choose from. There will be an encore showing for Batwoman at 10:30 am in Ballroom 20. The Simpsons will celebrate their 30th birthday in Ballroom 20 at 12:00 pm. The long-awaited return of Westworld will be further teased at 1:15 pm in Hall H. The rest of the Arrowverse, meanwhile, will receive their share of attention. Arrow will have a special presentation and Q&A in Ballroom 20 at 3:30 pm. Supergirl and The Flash will also receive both at 4:15 pm and 5:45 pm, respectively, in the same venue.
With all of that and even more besides scheduled across both days – including a newly confirmed MCU panel – there will be plenty to cater to each and every passion. All with such events as a Doctor Horrible‘s Sing-Along Blog-themed karaoke party at the end of each day. From a look at the technical aspect that goes into everyone’s favorite shows and movies to interacting with their stars, SDCC always much to keep the various fandoms enthralled. And, with plenty of first looks and new footage of various TV shows and movies, we at Screen Rant will be here to cover every single minute of it.
