DC Comics has exhibited at San Diego Comic-Con for decades. When Warner Bros turned up, like other media companies, they set up their own booth. Booths that have got bigger and more elaborate over the years. But this year, for the very first time, the Warner Bros booth… IS the DC Comics booth. Or vice versa. Depending how you look at it.
Set up in the media area of the show rather than the central comics publisher area, the two-story combination DC Warner Bros. booth #4545, will tower over Artists’s Alley. With more than 6,500 square feet across two levels, this space will host nearly 40 signings, with actors from Warner Bros., HBO series and New Line Cinema films, but also rubbing shoulders with almost 50 DC writers and artists.
With constantly evolving digital signage on towers and screens, the DC Warner Bros. booth will include an Arkham Asylum Activation that delves into the world of Harley Quinn, a re-creation of one of Riverdale’s Pop’s Diner booths; an Instagram-worthy station with the Central Perk couch from Friends, costumes and props from The Dark Knight film trilogy, in celebration of Batman’s 80th anniversary, and more.
Here’s a closer look at this year’s DC Warner Bros. booth areas of interest:
CENTRAL PERK AND POP’S DINER RE-LOCATE TO SAN DIEGO
WITH RIVERDALE AND FRIENDS SETS!
Celebrating its 25th anniversary throughout 2019, Friends will be “there for you” with the iconic Central Perk couch. The ultimate ’gram-worthy destination, the Friends couch will be available for fans to take photos and post to social (hashtag #WBSDCC or #Friends25). But if coffee’s not your thing, and you’re more of a milkshake type…
…grab a booth at Pop’s Diner! Elements from the popular Riverdale set have been meticulously re-assembled for fans to get together for another unforgettable photo op. Entering season four Riverdale returns October 9 and airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
THE DARK KNIGHT COSTUMES & COLLECTIBLES!
Sure, Comic-Con turns 50 this year, but DC is celebrating 80 Batman-worthy years of crime fighting in Gotham City (#Batman80)! Get up close and personal to actual costumes, props and more from Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Dark Knight Trilogy. Whether it’s Ra’s Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Bane, Selina Kyle or Batman himself, you’ll find all these plus photo ops and more on display in the DC WB booth!
In addition, there will be a number of DC Collectibles and fan merchandise on display from Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
HARLEY QUINN ARKHAM ACTIVATION!
As previously announced, DC UNIVERSE will take fans into the comically twisted realm of DC’s criminal “queenpin” Harley Quinn with an Arkham Activation that gives visitors an immersive, interactive glimpse into the highly anticipated adult-animated comedy series Harley Quinn.
The upcoming Harley Quinn series premieres later this year, exclusively on DCUNIVERSE. Featuring the voice of The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco as the Divine Ms. Quinn, the animated adult comedy series from Warner Bros. Animation is executive produced by Cuoco, WBA’s Sam Register and iZOMBIE’s Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey.
