Here’s the rundown of the WB Panel at the San Diego Comic Con. Refresh often as we’re going to update this as the events come out.

This post is/was a live post of the events as they played out at the WB Panel.

Line for Hall H was capped late last night at 10,000 people.

10:05: The Event has started. Chris Hardwicke (@nerdist) is moderating, dressed as Marty McFly.

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

They’ve just revealed the Batman vs. Superman logo.

Ben Affleck is now on stage.

The footage shown features Batman, in the rain, wearing his armored suit. The Bat Signal lights up the sky, revealing Superman hovering as his eyes glow red.

Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot came out on stage, we got to see our first look at Wonder Woman!

The trio were fashioned in the color palette of their characters. Affleck was dressed in a black leather jacket and dark grey shirt. Cavill had a white shirt while Gadot sported a leather vest and pants. – via THR

And that looks to be it for Batman vs. Superman.

JUPITER ASCENDING

Channing Tatum came out talk up the flick.

Hall H watched an extended trailer for the movie. I expect the WB site will have it up soon.

Based on reactions I’m seeing online, the five minute piece was a huge, huge success.

MAD MAX

Charlize Theron appeared on the big screen in a taped bit to talk about working on the film. “he idea of working with a filmmaker like George and attempting to reimagine this world was… it felt like such a great opportunity.”

The movie is meant to happen “40 years from next Wednesday,” so all the vehicles are ones from right now and meant to be rundown but without a lot of new technology or anything. – via Newsarama

Footage from the film was shown, and one reporter said “This makes a Michael Bay action sequence look tame.”

Mad Max Fury Road comes out in May 2015.

THE HOBBIT

Time for the Hobbit! Rumor has it that Jackson wants to split the last movie into two! We’ll find out shortly (I hope…)

Stephen Colbert moderates this portion of the panel dressed as the Lake Town spy!

No breaking news on this panel. A gag reel was shown to fans as well as a few clips from the upcoming movie. Looks like WB is going to wrap the movie up in one installment.

Best comment from the entire event!

Only 20 minutes left in Hall H. What else can they show us?

The teaser trailer for Battle of the Five Armies, of course!

Everyone is preparing for battle as very somber music plays over the images.

Jackson says he hopes one day “they” can open a Lord of the Rings Museum and make the props and costumes available to the public. That actually would be very cool, and with the success of the Harry Potter theme park, it wouldn’t surprise me to see something like that happen within two years of the final films release.

Interestingly, there is a Q&A session. Odd that The Hobbit gets a big to-do and others are kind of left off stage.

Oh… that’s why…

Peter Jackson really wanted to make the movies as a six series set. That kind of debunks a two-part finale rumor that I heard over at TheOneRing earlier this week. Jackson hopes people will watch this from the beginning, starting with The Hobbit, and make their way all the way through. I’ve done Lord of the Rings in one weekend, and it was long. I don’t think I could do all six movies (director’s cuts) in one go. It would have to be over a week at least.

And that wraps up The Hobbit segment of the programming.

And that wraps it up for the WB Panel. No big surprises, which saddens me, as I was hoping we would see the Justice League appear on stage, or at least see The Rock clear up the confusion on who he is playing, or not playing, in an upcoming Warner Bros. movie.
