Chris Hardwick to Moderate Marvel, Warner Bros, and More Panels at SDCC 2017

Pop in your 1996 CD Rom and get your pencil, paper, and atlas ready, because we’re about to play a little game called Where at San Diego Comic-Con is Chris Hardwick?. Granted, it’ll be a pretty small atlas, and there will be absolutely no mysteries to solve because I’m going to tell you exactly where he’ll be and what he’ll be doing, but you’re still going to be gumshoes, Gumshoes. (…In that you’re probably going to get some gum on your shoes by standing in the Hall H line.) Are you ready, sleuths? Here we go!

Saturday! Will you still be around? Chris Hardwick will! And it starts with a biggun: At 11:30am, in Hall H, it’s the Warner Bros. Pictures Presentation, where Chris will welcome director Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One, based on the hugely popular Ernest Cline novel, with stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, and T.J. Miller, author/co-screenwriter Cline, co-screenwriter Zak Penn, and Spielberg on the panel. Not only that, but it’s the long-awaited Blade Runner 2049, Alcon Entertainment’s sequel to the cult classic, with stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford as well as Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Lennie James, and Mackenzie Davis, writers Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and the film’s director, Denis Villeneuve. And then, buckle up for the greatest superheroes of the DC universe to be united for the first time on the big screen, with stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher talking all things Justice League, as well as an early look at director James Wan’s Aquaman.

After that, Chris has a tiny break (because who wouldn’t need one?), but he’ll be back, this time at the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront, at 4:00pm for Syfy’s hit show, The Magician! Join the series stars Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, and executive producers Sera Gamble and John McNamara as they look back on last season and provide a glimpse into what’s in store for Quentin and his friends.

To wrap up Saturday, Chris will make his triumphant return to Hall H for this year’s Marvel Studios panel. This takes place at 5:30pm, and right now only has producer Kevin Feige listed, but you can bet that there’ll be lots and lots to see, and tons more superheroic actors, writers, and directors to talk about Marvel’s slate of upcoming films.

Don’t miss out on Sunday, though: At 1:00pm< in Room 24ABC, it’s Danger & Eggs, the new Hardwick-produced, Amazon Original for kids that follows the endless adventures of a fearless, teal-haired girl named D.D. Danger and her ever-cautious best friend, a giant talking egg named Phillip. Chris will be joined by show’s voice talent Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live) and Eric Knobel (Huge Theater), along with guest voice talent Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up), Jasika Nicole (Fringe), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), and the show’s creators Shadi Petosky (Yo Gabba Gabba!MAD) and Mike Owens (Yo Gabba Gabba!Animaniacs), for a screening of an episode of Danger & Eggs and an audience Q&A.

And to wrap up the whole darn thing back in Hall H, we’ve got the official BBC America Doctor Who panel at 2pm. This will be a bittersweet affair as it’s the final panel with star Peter Capaldi. Fans will have an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special, the final episode starring Peter Capaldi as the Doctor and written by Emmy Award-winning lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat. Join Capaldi (the Doctor), Pearl Mackie (Bill), Matt Lucas (Nardole), Michelle Gomez (Missy), writer and actor Mark Gatiss (Sherlock), and Mr. Moffat.

Whether your name is Carmen or not, if you’re heading to San Diego, you’ll want to keep all of these Hardwick-hosted panels on your radar. If you did nothing else the whole con, you’d have yourself a pretty great time.
