Earlier this week, Warner Bros. confirmed that they won’t be presenting in Hall H this year at San Diego Comic-Con. Now Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Studio Chairman, says that Warners will return next year for the event with a look at their upcoming DC slate.
DC will skip Comic-Con this year for the first time in 20 years. But at the Produced By conference, Emmerich eased fans minds when he assured that Warner Bros. would be back next year with a look at the future of its DC-Slate.

While Warner Bros. won’t be presenting at Hall H this year, they will still have a presence at Comic-Con 2019. The DC booth, which usually is separate, is joining the Warner Bros. Booth at Comic-Con for one massive presence on the show floor. Those in attendance can visit the DC booth located at the entertainment section of the exhibit hall close to Artists Alley. The booth will feature current DC and Warner Bros. content, along with some It: Chapter Two at the booth.
The DCEU might’ve had a rough start, but the recent success of both Aquaman and Shazam! renewed faith in the cinematic universe. A DC presentation at Hall H would’ve given fans a look at what’s coming up. But the studio isn’t ready to show off marketing materials from their upcoming projects just yet according to Deadline.
Now that DC will return to Comic-Con 2020, fans will get a taste of what they worked on during the downtime this year.
