BURBANK, Calif. — Get ready for a spectacular Saturday night at Comic-Con 2014, courtesy of Warner Bros. Television (WBTV) and DC Entertainment (DCE). For the first time ever at SDCC, WBTV and DCE will present a three-hour special event on Saturday night, designed specifically for DC Comics fans and featuring some of DC Comics’ greatest characters. Kicking off the exclusive evening is the world premiere public screening of the highly anticipated new drama series Gotham (the only screening of Gotham at this year’s Comic-Con), followed by a screening of the complete pilot of new action-drama The Flash, and exclusive video presentations from returning hit Arrow and new thriller Constantine. Cast members and producers from all four shows will make special appearances throughout the night.
“Gotham” World Premiere: For the first time ever, DC Comics fans will enter the dangerous and compelling world of “Gotham” with a screening of the pilot episode, followed by an appearance by the cast and producers.
“The Flash” Pilot Screening: Following a full-length screening of “The Flash” pilot, cast and producers will stop running long enough to take the stage.
“Constantine” Exclusive Footage: The enigmatic John Constantine makes his television debut at Comic-Con with footage from the upcoming series, and fans will be treated to a visit from the cast and creative team.
“Arrow” Season Three: “Arrow’ returns to Comic-Con with never-before-seen teaser footage from the upcoming third season followed by cast and producers taking on fans’ most pointed questions.

Wow, that is a great line-up. Will this be a Hall H event? It had better be in a big hall because I would expect this event to be packed and standing room only. It wouldn’t surprise me to see people lining up Friday night for this one. That’s right, spending a whole day in line just to get a seat.
More likely, since the powers-that-be at SDCC have that ridiculous policy of not clearing the room before each panel, you’ll have people camping out in seats, sitting through panels they have absolutely no interest in, just so they can attend the DC Entertainment panel. Does anyone else image there might be another pencil in the eye occurrence? Those Arrow fans are going to have pointy-ish arrow props after all.
While the Flash pilot has already been leaked online, I’m saving myself for the premiere. I’m even wearing my Flash purity ring.
It looks like the DC Entertainment’s television shows will be making a strong effort to make a lasting impression on SDCC fans. Fans that attend will be the first to see the Gotham pilot, unless that pilot gets leaked before the October premiere. That’s a nice feather in any Batman fans cap.
There’s sure to be a lot of videos from the event, at least the Q&A portions with the attending producers and cast members. Be sure to check back and get all the Arrow, Gotham, Flash, and Constantine information you can handle right here.
