The full schedule for San Diego Comic Con has finally been released, and it looks like Saturday is going to be a huge day in the event's hallowed Hall H. The 6,500 seater Hall H regularly sees fans queuing for up to 24 hours to ensure a seat to see some of the biggest names in geek culture, but this year might see some of the longest lines of all time, with one day packing in an astounding number of 'must-see' panels.

On Saturday 23rd July, a battle of comicbook giants will unfold in Hall H with both Warner Bros. and Marvel likely to bring footage from their DC and Marvel cinematic universes. Warner Bros. will be start proceedings, and many expect them to reveal footage from both Wonder Woman and Justice League as well as bringing the cast of their August release, Suicide Squad, on stage. Marvel were notable absentees at last year's event, but the studio who love a Hall H surprise more than any other is set to go big this year. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Doctor Strange are the big titles expected to be shown during their 75 minute slot, which gets going at 5:00pm.

As if the two biggest names in comicbook movies aren't enough, two of the biggest names in Science Fiction will also be present. At 2:00pm, William Shatner and a host of other stars will appear on stage for a huge Star Trek Panel, which will be followed at 3:15pm by a 30th anniversary celebration of the Alien franchise.

Here's Saturday's full Hall H schedule:
Warner Bros. Pictures - 11:30am

Star Trek - 2:00pm
Aliens: 30th Anniversary - 3:15pm
Entertainment Weekly: Women Who Kick Ass - 4:30pm
Marvel Studios - 5:30pm
Kevin Smith - 7:00pm

Sunday is, comparatively, a much quieter day in Hall H, but there's still lots too look forward to. Benedict Cumberbatch will likely be returning to the stage to tease the upcoming new Sherlock episodes, and the Supernatural cast will bring hordes of fans into the dark, overly-air conditioned room.
Sherlock - 10:00am
Supernatural Special Video Presentation and Q&A - 11:15am
FOX's Action Showcase: Prison Break and 24: Legacy - 12:30pm

One of the biggest absentees from Hall H this year is LucasFilm. After putting on a huge panel and concert last year, it looks like LucasFilm will be leaving the headlines to the Disney brothers and sisters at Marvel, instead opting to focus on Star Wars Celebration in London this weekend.
