SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - There are some San Diego Comic-Con panels that are just too exciting and surprising for fans to miss.

It's part the thrill of the wait (sometimes lasting days) and part the magic brought only to those select fans who make it inside the convention center.

Those are the SDCC panels that leave fans talking. This year will prove to be the same, even with heavy hitters Marvel and HBO skipping out on the fun.

Hall H will see some of the most anticipated movies visit, including Aquaman, Halloween, and The Predator. And those shows that fans routinely binge, including The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and Iron Fist all plan to give fans a show as well.

Whether you're going to SDCC for the panels or not, expect some big news from these presentations:
