If you love The Flash, Legacies, Arrow, Veronica Mars, or a number of other Warner Bros. TV-produced shows, you’re going to love the announcement that’s come out today! The studio announced their full San Diego Comic-Con lineup, and it includes a number of their more-popular shows and some that have become convention staples.
For those wondering, all the times listed are Pacific — adjust accordingly depending on where you are! While we understand only a select few get to attend the annual convention (we have been a few times and it’s really a wonderful experience if you ever have the chance to check it out), we think these times still hold a lot of value for those of you who want to follow some of the big reveals live. (These times are subject to change.) There is one very interesting omission in the mix here in Legends of Tomorrow, and we’ll discuss that on the other side of sharing many of these dates.

The two panels worth watching in this mix are Supernatural and Arrow — with them entering their final seasons, we imagine that they’re going to feel in many ways like victory laps.
What’s going on with Legends of Tomorrow?
It is notable that the show isn’t there, given that it’s been a fixture of SDCC for years alongside all of the other Arrowverse shows. Yes, there is also another part of us that wants to get on our soapbox and proclaim that this represents it once more being the forgotten child of all great superhero shows — it’s probably the best one in terms of quality and yet, it gets the least amount of love from both its network and, apparently, its studio.
If you do want to put a lukewarm reason behind the omission, you can argue that because Legends of Tomorrow isn’t returning until midseason, clearly Warner Bros. doesn’t want to invest a lot of marketing money into sending most of its cast down there to the convention. There is somewhat of a precedent for studios doing this — even with Warner Bros. themselves, there is no panel listed at the moment for The 100, another one of their shows with a dedicated audience. Given that it’s actually on the air this summer, its omission is strange just because it could be active, real-time promotion of the show.
So while there may be somewhat of a logical reason why Legends of Tomorrow isn’t there, make no mistake — we’re still salty about it.
