With New York Comic-Con set to take place in a few weeks, companies are now announcing their panels at the convention. Today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has confirmed that it will be bringing two upcoming animated features to NYCC, as well as the documentary Batkid Begins.
On Friday, October 9th, a panel will be held for Batman: Bad Blood, where official clips from the Batman vs. Robin sequel will be shown. Stars Jason O’Mara (Batman) and Gaius Charles (Batwing) will be in attendance, as well as director Jay Oliva, producer James Tucker, and character designer Phil Bourassa. The attendants will hold an autograph session at 2:30-3:30 PM at the DC Entertainment booth, before the panel, moderated by Steven Smith, begins at 8 PM. Batman: Bad Blood will be available on home video early next year.
On Saturday, October 10th, the acclaimed documentary Batkid Begins will screen in full. It revolves around young cancer survivor and big Batman fan Miles Scott, who wished to be “Batkid.” The world came together to make Miles’ wish come true, as San Francisco was turned into Gotham City for one day in 2013. The documentary dives deep into that event and more, followed by a discussion with director Dana Nachman. Batkid Begins hits home video on October 6th.
Warner Bros. recently released the direct-to-video movie LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom, but we are already about to get a first-look at the sequel. Titled LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash, this installment will see the Justice League taking on Brainiac. Stars Troy Baker (Batman) and Phil LaMarr (Brainiac) will attend this panel, which takes place on Sunday, October 11th. There, the first footage will be shown. Also attending the panel are director Rick Morales, producer Brandon Vietti, screenwriter Jim Krieg, and moderator Tiffany Smith. Cosmic Clash will also be released on home video sometime early next year.
