This year's Comic-Con will miss an annual tradition as Warner Bros. is skipping its Saturday morning presentation in Hall H. The studio's upcoming projects - Joker, Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984 will not be debuting any new footage at the annual pop-culture extravaganza.
However, the studio isn't entirely skipping Comic-Con, as It: Chapter Two will be a part of the satellite event called ScareDiego, according to the director of the film, Andy Muschietti, who made the announcement on Instagram.
"BOOM ScareDiego in July with IT CHAPTER," he captioned the post.
The event, which has been going on for three years, has become one of the highlights of Wednesday's preview night, with a fun vibe in a more controlled venue in comparison to the Hall H.
Warner Bros. will show footage and members of the cast will be present for the It: Chapter Two presentation.
Rumours of the studio not attending the event first broke on Wednesday morning on social media, before being confirmed by the director of Wonder Woman 1984 Patty Jenkins in a tweet where she wrote, "We're so sad to miss you there!"
As a gift to the patient fans waiting for more Wonder Woman 1984 updates, Jenkins went on to reveal that tour and campaign for the movie will begin in December. She additionally unveiled the first look poster of the film featuring lead actor Gal Gadot. The film is slated to release on June 5, 2020. Comic-Con is set to run from July 18 to July 21, with ScareDiego taking place on July 17.
