As the first wave of New York Comic-Con announcements sweeps across the fandom, the TV offerings of Warner Bros. TV are looking to make a big splash — especially the new ones. With plenty of returning heavy-hitters and an armful of debuts, WBTV is bringing a lot of fire to the panels this year, with each having a video component sure to entice diehards and intrigued lookie-loos alike.
First, some old guards. Gotham will be making its final appearance at the con, with its farewell panel offering a video presentation before a Q&A helps explain the final season’s riff on the comic arc “No Man’s Land.” The stars and producers will be fielding queries as the show heads back at midseason to complete its fifth and final trip through Batman’s city. The 100 is another confident veteran, heading back to continue its sixth season after making a panel appearance that’ll offer fans another film snippet and Q&A with stars Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley alongside executive producer Jason Rothenberg.
Now, the new guard. Titans, the first show to premiere from DC’s new streaming service, will exclusively premiere at NYCC, screening the night before it officially kicks off. A Q&A with cast (Brenton Thwaites, Teagan Croft, Anna Diop, Ryan Potter, Minka Kelly, and Alan Ritchson) and creatives will follow — and these new, edgy superheroes will definitely have people talking, possibly about how one can curse at Batman and get away with it.
Manifest, the NBC Lost-in-reverse mystery series, will offer a sneak peek at some new footage, with stars Melissa Roxburgh and Josh Dallas helping executive producer Jeff Rak unpack it all.
The CW’s Legacies, the show focused on attendees of The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, will air its pilot for the first time at the con, as will the network’s Roswell, New Mexico (the reboot of the 1999 alien/high school show). Both will also offer Q&As with stars and producers along with Riverdale. The bonkers Archie show will screen a sneak peek at its upcoming third season before its Q&A and you can expect it to be every bit as drenched in sex and murder as the rest of the show. And that’s a good thing.
NYCC 2018 runs from Oct. 4 - 7.
