Comic-Con: 'Batman v Superman,' 'Man From UNCLE,' 'Pan' Casts to Appear at Warner Bros.' Panel
San Diego Comic-Con attendees can enjoy a double-dose of Henry Cavill during the Warner Bros. Pictures panel on Saturday at the annual pop culture extravaganza as he promotes this summer's The Man From UNCLE and next year's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Cavill will be joined onstage by Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and director Guy Ritchie to promote the retro spy feature during the WB panel on July 11, which runs 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in the massive Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center.
For Batman v. Superman, he'll be accompanied by director Zack Snyder, new Batman Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and cinema's first Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot. The panel will feature an exclusive look at footage from the March 2016 release.
There will also be a Cavill-less movie showcased during the panel, with Hugh Jackman, Garret Hedlund and Levi Miller taking the stage with director Joe Wright to promote Pan, the reimagining of the Peter Pan mythos.
In a statement, WB president of worldwide marketing and international distribution Sue Kroll said that Comic-Con "provides us a fantastic opportunity to interact with the fans and this year, as with every year, our aim is to surpass their expectations." (Warners also promises "unexpected offerings that are sure to delight the crowd," interestingly enough.) She added that Warners is also "thrilled" to offer filmmakers "a chance to experience the unique energy and enthusiasm" of the show.
