They’ll be showing off footage from all the shows, along with the pilot for The Flash and the premiere of Gotham’s pilot. Cast members and producers from all four shows will also be on hand, so this one should be stacked.

    Warner Bros. has a big panel planned, but the initial report says they’re not bringing any DC movies along for the ride. Of course, they could always bust out some surprises.

All promise to be massive sci-fi flicks, and the studio will have smatterings of cast and crew available to tell us all about ‘em.
