Warner Bros. Brings ‘Wonder Woman,’ ‘Suicide Squad,’ ‘Fantastic Beasts’ to Comic-Con

Warner Bros. has unveiled its San Diego Comic-Con lineup with presentations for “Wonder Woman,” “Suicide Squad” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

The studio’s also showcasing talent at the July 23 event from “Kong: Skull Island,” “The Lego Batman Movie” and “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.”

The Hall H presentation, headed up by Conan O’Brien, will include “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Connie Nielsen and director Patty Jenkins; and “Suicide Squad” stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach and Karen Fukuhara, along with writer/director David Ayer.

The “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” presentation will include director David Yates with stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Colin Farrell. Director Chris McKay and voice star Will Arnett will appear for “The Lego Batman Movie.”

Charlie Hunnam will appear for Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures. “Kong: Skull Island, produced by Warner Bros. and Legendary,” will be represented by Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

“Suicide Squad” is the first title out of the gate for Warner Bros. with an Aug. 5 launch, followed by Harry Potter spinoff “Fantastic Beasts” on Nov. 18. With “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” having been a mildly disappointing performer, those two titles represent the best chance for the studio to salvage 2016.

“Lego Batman” opens on on Feb. 10, followed by the King Kong origins movie “Kong: Skull Island” on March 10, “King Arthur” on March 24 and “Wonder Woman” on June 2.
