Next Thursday, July 21, the movie industry’s elite will descend on San Diego Comic-Con, with Hall H set to host some of the biggest blockbusters currently in development.
Among those on the guest list is Warner Bros., and an official press release from the studio reveals that Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, The LEGO Batman Movie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Kong: Skull Island and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are all bound for SDCC 2016.
Given that all of these tentpoles are simmering in varying stages of development – Guy Ritchie’s spin on King Arthur, for instance, was recently pushed into 2017 – don’t expect to see full-blown trailers for each movie on that list, but status reports across the board ought to keep our collective excitement ticking over.
