San Diego Comic-Con 2022 schedule

Chris Tilly

Comic-Con is back, with the biggest movies, TV shows, and comics hitting San Diego for four days of news, trailers, and announcements.

We don’t know specifics of what is happening at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but we do have an inkling of what might make the headlines.

Marvel and DC take center stage on Saturday. Warner Bros. kicks off the Comic-Con schedule with a panel about Black Adam and Shazam, and maybe even some Henry Cavill/Superman news. While Marvel ends the day with all things MCU.
