[Update:] And that’s a wrap on Comic-Con 2017! Here are some of FANDOM’s DC highlights from the show:

[Original article:] Get hyped, DC fans! Comic-Con 2017 is going to be chock full of awesome. You can expect plenty of news and surprise reveals about the big-screen DC Extended Universe, all of the Arrowverse TV shows on The CW, and a lot more. Here’s a look at everything DC happening at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Justice League and the DC Extended Universe will be there.

Warner Bros. is continuing their Hall H tradition with a massive movie panel on Saturday morning at 11:30. In the wake of Wonder Woman’s massive success, the studio’s using a portion of stage time to showcase what’s next for the DCEU. Namely, Justice League and Aquaman.

Officially announced are Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher. Conspicuously absent is Henry Cavill, but don’t be surprised if Superman makes a surprise return.

Joss Whedon has said that he won’t be there. The director is likely occupied with getting Justice League completed after taking over from Zack Snyder. And don’t be surprised if some other fan-favorites like Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, and J.K. Simmons pop in, too.

Jason Momoa and his abs will surely be in attendance.

Apart from Justice League and Aquaman, Warner Bros. could give fans a tiny morsel from any of the films on their massive slate of comic adaptations. We probably won’t get a tease of 2019’s Shazam until next year, but who knows. Beyond that, there’s Cyborg, Green Lantern Corps, The Flash, and more.

DC’s going ALL IN on the Arrowverse at Comic-Con.

If you’re a fan of DCTV on The CW, then you’re in luck. The Arrowverse is coming to Comic-Con in a big way. It’s all about Saturday afternoon in Ballroom 20, where you’ll find panels for all four shows back-to-back.

At 3:30 p.m., the cast of Supergirl takes the stage, following by the heroic ensemble from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Grant Gustin and friends arrive at 5:10 p.m. for The Flash panel, and Arrow brings up the rear at 5:50 p.m. It’s two hours of DCTV action that’s sure to be full of fun and surprises.

Black Lightning, The CW’s newest DC Comics-based series, isn’t technically part of the Arrowverse — at least not yet. But they’ll be part of this block, too, taking the Ballroom 20 stage at 4:50. You can also check out the first episode of Black Lightning during Wednesday’s Preview Night screenings in Ballroom 20.

Expect to find out a lot more about Syfy’s Krypton.

The cast of Syfy's Krypton.

Syfy’s Krypton hasn’t been too heavily hyped, but interest in the Superman prequel is expected to rise after the show’s Comic-Con presentation.

All we really know right now is that Krypton will center around Seg-El, the grandfather of Clark Kent a.k.a. Kal-El, and his relationship with Lyta Zod.

The full first episode of Krypton will be shown during the Wednesday Preview Night screening block, followed by a panel with the cast on Saturday at 1:15 in the Indigo Ballroom.

DC animated shows won’t be left out of the Comic-Con fun.

Fans of DC animated series Teen Titans Go! and Justice League Action won’t be disappointed in SDCC.

Teen Titans Go! is getting a double-shot of hype with a Wednesday Preview Night screening in Ballroom 20, followed by a panel on Thursday at 10AM in Room 6A. Voice cast members Greg Cipes, Tara Strong, and Scott Menville will be there with the producers of the Cartoon Network show.

The Justice League Action panel is Thursday at 12:30 Room 6A. It’s your chance to see perennial fan-favorite Kevin Conroy — the iconic voice of animated Batman — on the SDCC stage.

If you want to be possessed by Lucifer don’t skip this Comic-Con panel.

FOX’s Lucifer, based on the DC/Vertigo title, is returning to San Diego to heat up the Indigo Ballroom stage on Saturday at 1:50.

Stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, Kevin Alejandro, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer and executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich will be on hand for a special video presentation and Q&A where they’ll discuss the sizzling second season and what’s in store for Lucifer in Season 3.

The Gotham origin story unfolds on the Comic-Con stage on Saturday.

FOX’s proto-Batman series, Gotham, hits the Indigo Ballroom stage on Saturday at 2:50 for a special video presentation and Q&A.

Expect a tease of what Ra’s al Ghul will be up to this season and more about how the Penguin could regain his title as the King of Gotham. You’ll also learn about the new villains in store for Gotham Season 4 and more on the ultimate destiny of the show’s version of Bruce Wayne. Unspecified series stars and producers will be there.
