It was inevitable, but now it has been confirmed. Warner Bros. has announced that its San Diego Comic-Con 2015 panel will be headlined by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Director Zack Snyder will be on stage, accompanied by Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot and other members of the film’s ensemble cast.
Also announced by WB as films on its panel are Pan and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the latter of which also stars Cavill. The studio teases that there will be a few surprises during its 90 minute panel. One of these will likely be Suicide Squad; The Wrap has heard that that movie’s cast will be on stage, possibly to show some footage. The studio is also expected to present something for Wonder Woman and/or Justice League, with the latter rumored to be unveiling its complete cast at the convention.
