It's not set yet if the duo will be at the well-appointed booth on Friday night or on July 11 after their Hall H appearance. It has also not been firmed up if Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot will be there too. The trio of actors showed up last year for WB's Hall H shindig with director Zack Snyder.
ToyArk.com has a series of photos of the Play Arts Kai DC Comics display, which includes a striking "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" Superman figure.
This animated short ties-in with the new Mattel line "Thomas & FriendsTM Super Friends MINIS". The engines who keep the Island of Sodor running now have heroic new makeovers as MINIS with designs based on the heroes seen in DC Comics.

Best of all, it includes a premium, exclusive-to-San Diego Comic Con package complete with a new comic story revealing the origin of the Thomas/DC Super Friends mashup and dynamic light-up action! It's the perfect introduction to the Thomas & Friends/DC Super Friends MINIS.
Every year, the San Diego Comic-Con screens upcoming, never-before-seen pilot episodes during their Wednesday Night "Preview Night." Not everyone who attends Comic-Con is able to purchase a Preview Night badge. Those lucky few that do are always in for something special. This year, on Wednesday, July 8, CBS screened SUPERGIRL inside Ballroom 20.
Ballroom 20 is the second largest room inside the San Diego Convention Center, with a seating capacity of approximately 4,200.
Once inside, they show some promotional TV spots from upcoming Warner Bros. shows, and then it's time for the World Premiere screening of SUPERGIRL.
The show begins on Krypton, 24 years ago, during the final moments before its destruction. This part of the story you probably already know: Baby Kal-El is placed in a rocket by his loving parents, and then blasted off into space. The part you DON'T know, is that a 13-year old Kara Zor-El, was sent in a second rocket, to protect her baby cousin. Kara says goodbye to her parents in a touching scene, then blasts off to follow her baby cousin to Earth.
Unfortunately, the destruction of Krypton sent a shockwave that threw Kara's ship off course and into the Phantom Zone. She spent the next 24 years inside the Phantom Zone, and since time does not pass inside it, she hasn't aged at all when her ship finally makes it to Earth. During that time, baby Kal-El has grown up and revealed himself to the world as SUPERMAN. He places Kara with a foster family, the Danvers. They are scientists who had helped SUPERMAN with his abilities.
Fast forward a little over 10 years later, we see Kara all grown up, on her way to her job at CatCo. This media company is run by Cat Grant, the post powerful woman in National City. We also get introduced to James Olsen, who just got hired at CatCo. He moved from Metropolis to National City for his new job.
Later, at Kara's apartment, we meet Alex, Kara's foster sister. They have a great conversation about how Kara wants to do more with her life than just get coffee for her boss. Kara has all the same powers SUPERMAN has, but she chose to live a normal, ordinary life because the world doesn't need another hero.
It is now nighttime, and Kara is on a blind date. She sees a Breaking News report that the plane her sister is on has experienced engine failure. She rushes out the back, uses her telescopic and x-ray vision, and sees her sister inside the falling plane. She runs down the back alley to get a running start, and she flies into the sky, toward the plane.
As she attempts the steer the plane to a safe landing, we get a great hi-octane action scene as passengers are screaming, debris is falling from the sky, and Kara struggles to keep the plane from crashing. That scene had me at the edge of my seat wondering if they were going to make it down in one piece. Luckily they do, and Kara stands on the wing of the plane for a brief moment before she flies away.
The S-shield gets shown on the screen, and everyone in the audience starts cheering.
In less than 15 minutes, we got an origin story, a good set-up for the type of person Kara is, and a great action scene where Kara used her powers to save a plane.
I won't go into huge detail as to what happens next, I don't want to spoil the whole story for anyone. Suffice it to say that we'll see the aftermath of her actions: The way it affects her job, her relationship with her sister, and the people close to her. We'll see her try out different outfits before she settles on her final one. We'll see a super-powered villain try to kill her. Kara will receive a message from Krypton at a point when all hope seems lost. The show also sets up future storylines for the rest of the season.
I really enjoyed watching the Pilot. There was humor, there was drama, and a good mix of action and touching scenes as well. It was very well written. The acting was great. And it has a very nice epilogue that sets up the rest of the season. I am very excited to see what happens next. I strongly recommend you watch the SUPERGIRL Pilot when it airs on October 26, on CBS.

"Our prototype is the way the president is seen on Veep," executive producer Ali Adler tells EW, referring to the HBO drama's clever way of mentioning, but never showing POTUS. "It's certainly [inspired by] so much of what Julia-Louis Dreyfus' character goes through. Ultimately, this is a show about Supergirl and we really want to see it through her lens."
Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot. Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
The film opens nationwide in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters on March 25, 2016, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
A brand-new #Supergirl preview just when you need it the most. Let Kara save your day.Posted by Supergirl on Wednesday, 8 July 2015
It is set on a new planet entirely. Where that planet comes from will be fun to discover. This is really about the survivors of Earth 2 colonizing a new planet. I love the symmetry too. They've just been attacked by Apokolips which is another race of creatures that are coming to take their planet and now they're kind of in the exact same position. They're showing up desperate, they need a place to live and there's a planet there for the taking.
Can you give the fans an idea about Earth 2 characters to keep an eye on going into this new series?
There's so much stuff that's going to be surprising and fun with this setup. A lot of characters are undergoing major transformations. I would say Jimmy Olsen goes through so much transformation in World's End and he's one of my favorites, so you get to see more Jimmy. I think keeping an eye on Jimmy is going to be pretty fun because he's going to take on a larger role, gain more power and become a really interesting character.
