"The Boys" looks at what happens when superheroes abused their powers rather than using them for good, starring Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, and more. "Carnival Row" explores a Victorian age where the worlds of man and mythological creatures collide, starring Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, David Gyasi, and Tamzin Merchant.

80th anniversary of Batman: This year marks the 80th anniverssary of the Caped Crusader. As such, "Batmen" from years past will visit SDCC. The 1989 film "Batman" gets a panel on Saturday, in Room 6A to showcase the classic with the film's producer Michael Usla. "Batman Beyond" also turns 20, taking the stage in Hall H Thursday with voice actors Kevin Conroy and Will Friedle. Perhaps even bigger though, Preview Night on Wednesday, July 17, brings the first-ever look at Warner Bros. TV's "Batwoman" series starring Ruby Rose and Epix's "Pennyworth" starring Jack Bannon.

Russo Brothers get Hall H to themselves: The directors of "Avengers: Endgame" take the stage in Hall H on Friday, for their own panel to discuss the blockbuster film and their run in the Marvel universe, the formation of their new company, AGBO, and what's next for them. But such a big stage for just two panelists, there could be room for more.

Picard returns to "Star Trek": Star Trek reigns over Hall H on Saturday, bringing back Sir Patrick Stewart for the series "Star Trek: Picard." Fans will get a first look at the new show that brings Stewart back to the iconic franchise.

Goodbye to "Supernatural": It will be a bittersweet goodbye in Hall H Sunday, as fans of the long-running hit "Supernatural" say so long. Stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki will recap of the show's 14 seasons, talk with fans, and tease the show's final season.
