“Predator,” “Shazam” Coming To Comic Con

With the San Diego Comic Con only a few weeks away, this year’s line-up of films to score panels is beginning to coalesce with several confirmations now being locked in.

The Warner Bros. Pictures panel is expected to be the biggie this year and include not just the first “Aquaman” trailer and the first “Shazam” trailer but also a ‘surprise’ appearance tied to “Wonder Woman 1984” which is currently in production. That appearance is expected to be Gadot herself and a clip (which won’t go online, though the other two trailers will).

Universal Pictures is reportedly going to have panels for both Shyamalan’s “Split” & “Unbreakable” sequel “Glass,” and the new “Halloween” which John Carpenter reportedly about to get to work on the score. There may also be something for “Mortal Engines” but that’s not confirmed.

20th Century Fox is set to offer a look at Shane Black’s mini-reboot/sequel “The Predator” and possibly a bit from Robert Rodriguez’s “Alita: Battle Angel,” though no word as yet if either of the new “X-Men” films will get a peak.

Sony Pictures is set to push both “Venom” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”. Not confirmed but likely are a Paramount panel for “Bumblebee” and something tied to Lionsgate’s new “Hellboy”. As previously reported, Marvel and HBO are effectively sitting out this year convention so no panels for “Game of Thrones,” “Westworld,” “Captain Marvel” or the fourth “Avengers”.
