    Nice that the panels for the Arrowverse shows are a classic 45 mins long. Last year’s panels were too short and condensed for the massive attention these shows get in SDCC.

    • Hank Voight says:

      That and most DCCW shows start production in July. So pretty sure most if not all cast members of those shows are only in town for that day only.

      • May says:

        I know they didn’t have new footage because filming hadn’t started/barely started but if I remember right, they only stayed for a day after arriving in san diego the previous evening. Lots of shows to fit in their schedule anyway.

  2. Annie says:

    I can’t believe Jason Rothenberg will finally come out of hiding. If I were him I’d be worried because the Lexa fans are still behaving badly at cons and it’s been months. They’re probably waiting to just tear him apart at that panel.

  3. Kevin K says:

    Wonder if the Supergirl panel have to say about Lynda Carter.

  4. Trish says:

    I can see I’m not going to get along with TVLine if you’re going to keep using that same pic that doesn’t contain the hero that paved the way. Put some respeck on the Green Arrow’s name/pic, Matt.

    • Dean says:

      Geez who peed in your coffee cup today?

      • Asif says:

        I see their point, though misplaced here. It’s bad enough that they’re promoting the hell out of supergirl to the point of having the flash fans be mad about a poster. As far as arrow is concerned, PR has taken a hit last year with legends and the year before that with flash. It’s like being the older sibling in a big family

    • Michelle says:

      Why? Not like the writers and showrunner respect Arrow…

    • Brigid says:

      Why, most people don’t even care about the Green Arrow because it sucks now that they created this horrendous soap opera instead of sticking to their original vision. Supergirl and The Flash can’t help that they are the superior quality shows who stick to their vision and have proven their quality. TVLine is putting up the picture of the shows that will draw in the fans, seems like the smart thing to do. That picture is the reason I clicked on the article!

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Can’t wait for panel highlights and interviews for DC shows from TVLine at Comic Con!

  6. Jec says:

    Do people even show up at the TVD/TO panels? I mean no one talks about those shows and honestly, the quality has been slipping drastically.
