SDCC’14: Fans will see premiere episodes of Gotham and The Flash at convention
Last week on the Finally Friday show, I predicted fans would be able to watch the entire episode of The Flash at the San Diego Comic Con. Warner Bros. and The CW are not only showing off The Flash, but they’ll be showing fans Gotham as well.
In addition to seeing the premiere of Gotham and The Flash, WBTV, DC Entertainment and SDCC will also show off exclusive footage of the upcoming Constantine show for NBC. With the recent announcement that the title character wouldn’t be smoking in the series, it will be interesting to see what Warner Bros. presents as well as the fan reaction on that side.
Fans will also get to see never-before-seen teaser footage from the upcoming third season of Arrow, and they will be able to ask the cast and producers questions following the event.
This all takes place Saturday night, July 26. Warner Bros. did state that they will have a few more announced panels soon.
Here’s all the boilerplate info:

John Constantine is a man waging war against the forces of darkness — from both within himself and the outside world.
