SAN DIEGO – Saturday is the day you’re going to need your rest and patience with the Comic-Con crowd.
You’ll be dealing with people who literally have spent days in line waiting to get into the hottest pop culture rooms of the Con. And now, here’s their big payoff.
I love Saturday at the Con, but you cannot be everywhere at the same time and try to see all the panels you want to see. So decide to a plan early and stick to it. If you’re going to be a Hall H person, the commit to the whole day. You won’t be able to jump back and forth between that and Ballroom 20 which also has great programming as well.
DC Comics character Aquaman has been the butt of jokes for decades. But all that could change when “Aquaman” the movie drops its first trailer during the Warner Bros. panel in Hall H.

Also expect Gal Gadot of Wonder Woman to make a quick appearance to show off some scenes from the sequel “Wonder Woman 1984.” Zachary Levi, will also be in attendance to show “SHAZAM!” which is due out in April.
